I always suspected that when you were talking about how good powder is in Whistler.

You were really not talking about the snow were you?

So take the money out of the hands of one set of criminals and right into the hands of another set of criminals.

CNN is full of what makes the grass grow green. Fox too. Anyone who thinks either "news" entity, or any major American media conglomerate, is actually interested in reporting the news, is fooling themselves.

It depends on whether you're talking about news stories or opinion stories.  CNN has some good reporting, but also plenty of editorial opinion segments.  Fox, aside from Wallace, is pretty much all opinion/propaganda

Basically cnn is a steaming pile of dog poop whereas fox news is like a heaping pile of elephant poop. Both stink but there is definitely a difference

Mostly everyone understands fact checkers work for the luxury class. But on an even more obvious note, the fact check should be on the guy from CNN.

Sure thing slick. You keep telling yourself that garbage sources are actually legit and the rest of us will keep looking at you like you took the short bus to school every day....:rolleyes:

There are innumerable places to get the video of him speaking. Pick the one you like. But beyond that, I'm not usually interested in any interpretation from hosts because the entertainment industry doesn't generally attract the brightest of us.

We don't need to rely on BS sources to tell us that Fox News and Cucker are lying propagandists.  Fox lawyers made the point for us in COURT.  

 

No reasonable viewer should take them seriously.

 

NOW, if you had posted an article from the AP, or NPR, or Axios, or Reuters, then you can puff your chest out.  As RUPERT clearly demonstrated, your source is absolute trash and is nowhere equivalent to much more reputable sources.  Oh, but I'm sure you have a trash YouTube video that tells you the MSM is out to get "conservatives".  Keep telling yourself that one there slick.

Now why would I care about what Tucker Carlson says? What does he have to do with this CNN guy describing what CNN does to it's audience? As I mentioned, there are many videos out there of him speaking. Pick whatever one you want.

 

Now the news agencies you are lauding, are they same ones that propagated the drink bleach hoax on their audience? They're all in the pockets of power and definitely not honest arbiters of truth. Strictly political entities. All of them.

The only one propagating to drink bleach was Trump.

I got a bit of a chuckle out of this story....

 

Apparently one of the Capitol rioters tried to skip the country and get on a flight to Switzerland. Because of this, a judge is ordering that he be held in jail, as he awaits trial.

 

https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/14/politics/capitol-riot-switzerland-suicide/index.html

A geophysicist who allegedly beat police officers who were trying to help injured rioters during the US Capitol siege will be jailed before trial, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, citing the man's ham-handed attempt to flee to Switzerland as proof that he poses a literal flight risk.

Judge Emmet Sullivan said Jeffrey Sabol was too dangerous to release due to the flight risk and because he might continue his fight against "perceived tyranny" once he is out of jail.
"He stripped a vulnerable police officer of his police baton," Sullivan wrote in a 64-page ruling. "He then used that stolen police baton to force another officer away from his post and into a mob of rioters who proceeded to viciously attack him, leaving him bleeding from the head."
Sabol was indicted alongside four others who allegedly assaulted the officers, including one who was beaten while being dragged face-down into the crowd. He hasn't yet entered a plea.
Sabol took drastic steps after the January 6 insurrection because he "reached a mental breaking point," according to court filings. He traveled from his native Colorado to Boston and booked a flight to Switzerland, where he believed he would be protected from extradition, according to court filings. But he abandoned that plan after seeing law enforcement officers at the airport.
Instead, he rented a car and drove south. He later told investigators that while he was driving he threw his cell phone over a bridge near Boston because he thought he was being tracked.

 

There's more in the link, but you get the idea.
 
I read in a different story that Sabol chose Switzerland in part because he believed that the US didn't have an extradition treaty with the Swiss. (Switzerland being "neutral" and all that :rolleyes:).....
 
There's just one problem with that theory....
