    I see Trump smears all over the front page of CNN when I go there, see only one article on the front page regarding wikileaks and it's regarding Russia feeding them the stolen emails and not on the content of them.

    Media bias?

    I'd suggest you find a scientific survey or conduct your own.

    Look into the matter and report back any findings.

    Otherwise, just going by feelings isn't worth much.

    The results get completely skew based on one's political point of view.

    I don't know about their webpage, but they have been talking about the wikileaks content on air every single day with each new release and just as they ask Trump surrogates about his sexual issues with women, they have asked the Clinton surrogates about the wikileaks info.

    Why do we need a survey? The two biggest news stories in the presidential election, both damning to each candidate, no coverage on one? Why do we need a survey to see what's displayed on the homepage of CNN?

    I'm not voting for Trump, are you voting for Hillary?

    I could say the same for every left wing talking point from Patriarchy to institutionalized racism. I bet you would accept those at face value.

    What's so damning about the emails released in the past few days? So far all I see is that Clinton's organization is working diligently to get her elected, e.g., their jobs. It also shows the organization is very organized and experienced.

    More importantly, why has Trump become so whiny?

    Because your feelings are an untrustworthy measuring stick for detecting media bias.

    No. I'd actually agree with you.

    The liberal media has been bias on many things for a long time. I found this out years ago.

    Such as distain for Catholics and Evangelicals by the democratic party...The Justice Department fed information to the DNC on Hilary's email investigation before she gets in front of Congress...Getting town hall questions in advance.

    I guess you could call that getting ready for the election.

    Its funny, their not even denying it, just that the Russians illegally hacked into their server.

    Well, disdain by a couple of guys sending emails.

    This is why this leaked email thing is such a bad idea, or at least should be a bipartisan expose. Every out of the way ******* involved in the tiniest parts of the party offering up his tasteless, candid opinion in private will be used against the party as a whole by the usual chucklehead pundits out looking for a juicy morsel of gossip.

    At least most of us are above the fray and are aware of the propaganda. There are millions who munch on it hook-line-and-sinker.

    As long as FOX News exists, nobody can talk about media bias from other news networks.

    If it were really that, they wouldn't employ so many Republicans and even a former Trump campaign manager.

    Why are you surprised. The latest batch of emails from Wiki Leaks show that the major news outlets are directly working with the Hillary's campaign. You don't expect the news outlets to report that they themselves are corrupt :D.

    Fox News has been covering Trumps women's scandals pretty much all week. Their website has stories about the wikileaks deal and Trump.

    If the recent leaks are so interesting: where are all the threads about 'em here in PRSI? All I can see is one where Hillary appears to be ... competent due said material. That's all?

    To bad Jess is suspended, I guess he read em all and could shed some diffuse light.

    That's interesting, I'm fairly sure you have said in the past that you believe in affirmative action for women and minorities. If you agree with me, why would we need to discriminate against men and white people?

    Maybe they aren't interesting then...

    Or maybe CNN doesn't want to support Americas enemies....

    CNN was never this bad, I use the think of it as somewhat unbiased, and use to trash Fox news all the time. It is really scary that I actually seem to agree with fox news lately.

    2-3 years ago I use to watch and enjoy the YTY YouTube channel, today I can't even stomach watching any of their content. When Keith Olberman had his show, I use to love his content, I knew it was biased but I just hated GWB so I did not care. Today most if not all media is infected by SJW cancer.
