I am sure that many have noticed that most of the News Outlets have stopped allowing comments on their articles.

In the short time since they made the change, the articles have become even more anti Trump/Republican Party and pander to the mis/il/un informed to an almost comical level.  They make crazy comments and opinions and put them out as fact, and nobody is able to say anything in return.

I used to read "YAHOO NEWS"  as much to read the comments as the leftist articles

This probably means little so some and less to others, but it is becoming the new normal here in the USA.  The people of America need to wake up and see what politicians of each party are doing to us. The Democrats and their hate should be put in its place.

    The latest videos from Portland should be enough to figure out that we are on our own and anything but their narrative will be suppressed.  This morning I saw another video from Chicago where this guy was just sweeping a sidewalk minding his own business when this **** coward walking by him just sucker punches him and runs away.  These LOSERS are now emboldened because in their cities they can get away with anything and there is no consequence.  Their sense of entitlement grows by the day fueled by media support and Democrat silence.

    I have to honestly admitt total ignorance as to bias of  online news. Hardly ever read it. Never read the comments either. 

    TV news is almost completely void of dignity. I like BBC, PBS, NPR.. I claim no lack of bias there, but at least they have some dignity.

    I'm not sure how the Democrats are complicit in the degregation of news content? Does the DNC own stock? What possible interest could a coporate entity have in supporting anything that leans towards socialism? I suspect that perceived bias is more against the incumbent than for the opposition. And that some portion of the objectionable content is actually true. I don't claim to know how much.

    I used to get my news here through links and the filter of members comments, still do to some extent, too many filters have left the building though

    I did that too for a while, but a few recent personal experiences have convinced me that now more than ever I need to stay informed of what's going on.  I've never considered myself a paranoid person but I can tell you that if your "spider sense" is not tinging nowadays you're not looking around enough.  

    The incidents of violence and unprovoked attacks are rising alarmingly in all the cities that are in turmoil lately so for the most part it does not affect me on a day to day basis, but my senses tell me that the zombies are feeling jiggy all over the USA and getting emboldened by the day.  

    I speak to all folks all day long, ll over the USA for business, many living in these affected areas and they are ALL telling me that it's actually WORSE than what is shown on TV.  Retail in NYC is taking a massive hit since they are not prosecuting non-violent crime anymore so if you go to the local drugstore to buy something it is not unusual for folks to just walk in with a bag, fill it up and walk out.  And if you even LOOK at them you will be met with a rather defiant response.  These thugs are untouchable in their minds, and to a certain extent they are in many places.

    It will not take long before they realize they can take the behavior outside of city limits.  They are organized and well funded.

    The man and woman in the white truck is almost as bad as the old lady in new york that they beat.
    Of course if it was more public and shown in entirety on tv BLM would lose support quickly.
    BLM should be renamed to OBLM  Only Black Lives Matter

    Actually BLM is supported by a LOT of clueless folks of every color of the rainbow that have taken this "support" to mean that they can also get away with anything.  The guy in Seattle is not black.  Many of the folks looting and rioting in other cities are not black either.  They are just anti-USA and anti-government so they are jumping on this bandwagon and becoming part of the movement so they can enjoy the power trip and lawless behavior.

    Anybody that watched the DNC last night should have noticed a couple of troops IN UNIFORM in, I think, the Hawaiian vote totals for the candidates. This is clearly an egregious violation of the UCMJ, and those troops should be introduced that fact, and bear the full force of the UCMJ for that blatant violation.

    As far as news sources, I've written off all of the MSM as left wing mouthpieces. I get my news from some 'other than MSM' sources, and won't name them here. No use starting a poo flinging fight.

    As to the happenings in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, New York City, et al, I'm really beginning not to care about them at all. Folks got the government they voted for, and if they don't rise up in rebellion to it, then they would seem to deserve the government they get. They seem comfortable with the rioting, burning, looting, and general anarchy in their midst as they have not gathered in force at the Mayor's office or the state capitols to voice their displeasure. People who will not stand for something will generally fall for anything as it's 'somebody else's job' and they can't be bothered with it. In three words, "I DON'T CARE'.

    BLM and ANTIFA are both communist fronts for the demonscum party. The are the collection agents for democrats, which is why demonscum run cities are letting these bags of excrement run wild to do their thing.

    It was American Samoa. They were (and I believe it) trying to portray their deep-rooted cultural ties to the US military. I served with ~ a half dozen Samoains over a 4 year hitch. To a man, they all said the most respected and coveted job on the island was serving as a US Marine.

    The US has no active duty stations there. I'm thinking it was a couple of Reservists with little to no oversight that weren't aware of regulations.

    Much as I hate to give the DNC a pass on anything......I'm gonna give them this one.

    It's not quite the same as a Marine NCO holding an umbrella over O'bamas' head during a slight drizzle in the continental US.

    They claim it was an oversight.  BS  they were staged there on purpose.  Low enough rank to pull the "i didn't know"  But high enough they should have known better.  They were usded by the Democratic party

    I haven't watched mainstream news in several years. Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc... I don't trust any of them.

    Instead I try to pick apart the consistencies I see in various reports of the same incident from online sources. Not perfect, but at least it gives me a shot at creating my own objectivity.

    I get the Epoch Times delivered every week. Outstanding paper IMO. As for television? Haven't had a "telescreen' in my house in over 10 years. I detest ALL mainstream news outlets as well as having a vehement hatred for ALL professional sports so there's no need for me to have one in the house. Still have a flip-phone and for any news I use a home PC to choose what want to watch and read. I view the news and professional sports in the same manner as I would watch an inhabited barrel going over Niagara Falls.

    Ever since Roger Ailes died in 2017, FOX has been going downhill because of his more moderate son that is now in charge. Daytime news has definitely deteriorated by being more PC than they used to be, and a couple of night-time conservative talkers have been censured. If I ever notice Carlson, Hannity, Ingraham, or Dobbs going PC, that will be it for me.

    I just get so irritated when that idiot Juan Hwateverhislastnameis, opens his mouth.  I have no issues having a Liberal counter point on the shows but at least get a smart man that actually can debate.  He just blurts out the Liberal talking points as if they were ironclad proof and when asked to back them up with facts he just stumbles and defaults to the glossy brochure he has been handed by the DNC.  He's a blatant liar and he's stupid to make it even worse.  But to be fair I also get irritated when the conservatives try to surround a bad Republican point with narrative to somehow justify it.  There is plenty of truth that shows the correct picture.  STICK to it...

    He also tells lies and tells listeners that the Republicans are hiding this and covering up that, while he is just making crap up as he speaks.  He is one of the worst

    I'm pretty much in agreement - and I think they're in collusion with the CCP and maybe even the Russians as well. That would be the CCP as well as the CCCP!

    IMO, JFK was the last of the true liberal Democrats. Beginning with Johnson, they began to morph into the communist party of today. They have clearly shown their support of anti-American Marxist take-over of our cities with their experiments in Portland, Chicago, Minneapolis, and other democratic controlled cesspools being prime examples. However, it is also worth mentioning that some Republicans are now heading down the same path as America trades character and integrity away for insanity.
