Trump calling for extrajudicial killing of US citizens.
"When the looting starts, the shooting starts" is a quote from racist Miami Police Chief Walter Headley who targeted black people in 1967 ahead of the Republican convention.

CNN wouldn't possibly pull that type of stunt would they?
They haven't been caught doing it before have they?

America is getting li8ke Thailand, if you did not read it or see it, you would not believe it. here we have the Coup makers pretending to be democratic, there we have a president who thinks nothing applies to him. Both eventually a scenario for disaster

You mean the news crew being arrested? Wasn't a stunt. The governor has taken responsibility and apologized.

Serious answer
it wasn't that particular incident, I was just using it as an example of why I'm sceptical of the media in general
My feeling is they are agenda pushers rather than news reporters.

when did that all change? i remember sitting in
front of tv as a young man watching the news
and the actual news was being given by people you trusted . ever since the end of this last election cycle nearly 4 years ago . every news
station has an agenda. every reporter a candidate
none of them are impartial or give unbiased news.
it's very un-american the incessant bickering and
sour grapes . did obama endure all that? think not

True. One has to do one's homework, check for the back story, etc.. I recall Fox's Geraldo got kicked out of Iraq for stepping on his dick. Or maybe that was fake news. Accommodating these embedded reporters in a war is a struggle so having 'free-range' media in a major riot zone can't be much easier.

Tam
you and I haven't agreed on too much
but I don't know what's wrong with being able to turn on the news or pick up a newspaper and be reasonably sure your reading a factual account of the event in question not whatever is the current agenda from whichever side is flavor of the month or being pushed at that time.
anyway let's stop agreeing might become habit forming.

Don't know, do you have figures
I personally support their right to protest the death of the guy but have a problem supporting looting and destruction of innocent peoples property.
