    Observer writer is as psychotic as his shrill hyperbole indicates.

    The title the author gets a point for, because scores of other bleating lambs have come from such a wide array of angles that it's the only thing to stand out. And stand out it must, because in the end, it's same ol, same ol.

    Yet, as in the scores of other bleatings, it's as satisfying to the bloodthirsty hordes as is the public executions of ISIS to their audience.

    In the end, it's good ole American free market competition for eyeballs, ears, and dollars.

    Sounds like you feel threatened. More interesting than the article is that it appears in Trump's son-in-law's publication.

    That might make for an awkward next get together. Or the next time Ivanka talks to daddy.

    Media bashing Trump is conspicuous.

    Leave it to the inimitable Dick Morris to point out, in a piece entitled, "while the media focus on Trump, voters focus on Clinton."

    "While the media love to focus on the perceived “gaffes” and “blunders” of Donald Trump, the voters are increasingly more interested in the unfolding evidence of a pay-for-play bribery scheme at the Clinton Foundation."

    And Susan Brown titled a piece, "With Hillary, Where There’s Smoke There’s Fire"

    So you do feel threatened. You should. Not that I put a lot of weight into polls.. But Donald is not faring well. And many of the GOP are running for the hills.

    Leave it to Fox to compile a four-minute discussion of media bias and hostility over the past several Republican nominees.

    Covered here and elsewhere is that the media bias right now is not only conspicuous, but out in the open and bragged among the media as a badge of honor.

    The dude is a Hill-bot shill, and a shill in the literal sense. Too bad his writing and op-ed isn’t worth so much as a farthing.


    RT pro-Hillary and her co-conspirator DWS post-resignation

    Of course he feels threatened. You know you've hit rock bottom when you have to trot out Dick Morris.

    Well you both are missing the point and instead have gone on a tirade about the author and media bias.

    I posted the commentary not because of the specific content - but because it was published by Trump's son-in-law. But go ahead and regurgitate your nonsense.

    A superfluous reason for a thread, but my commentary in post #2 stands.

    As does this:

    Coverage of Trump controversies raises questions about media
    Aug. 12, 2016 - 7:41 - Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz and Trump adviser Ben Carson weigh in on 'The Kelly File'

    Such a compilation. 7 minutes. They get approx 3.5 minutes each.

    synopsis: Newspapers are more off-kilter than televised media. Howard Kurtz expounds. Watch the examples of both print and televised media. Ben Carson then talks about the bullseye on Trump’s back: Establishment versus insurgent. Donald threatens establishment. For all the media talk about Trump, there’s less time left to talk about Hillary.

    But do leave it to Fox for fair and balanced. A popular Fox commentator shredded Trump in a psychoanalytical piece.

    1. Trump loves the attention
    2. Trump feeds the media frenzy

    Let me know when Hillary is saying outrageous things that the media can hop on. They are few an far between.

    You complaining about unfair media coverage is akin to Sarah Palin saying that the liberal media should leave her alone out of one side of her mouth and then talking crazy out of the other.

    Trump was right in that he has made millions for the media with ratings bumps and clicks to websites. He's proud of it. And in some ways - he thinks that the media owes him for that. They don't. Just like people want to defend what Trump did to small businesses he contracted as "business as usual" - the same thing applies. The media is a business.

    What I find interesting in reading your posts and some others is they irony and hypocrisy. Fascinating character study. Just like Trump is.

    You've apparently didn't watch the first posted video link.

    The content was all about the kind of treatment Media gave Bush, McCain, Romney; preceding Trump.

    Carbon copy is the operative word.

    So you're upset that Trump is getting unfair treatment. Well - first you have to look at those other three and realize that (while I don't personally agree with some of their politics) - they had experience, respect and more importantly - they were sane.
