    The New York Post published a very good article on media bias as it pertains to the presidential election. My only argument with it is that they left Fox News out of the equation, and they are no better. Fox News has as much of a neoconservative bias as the other media outlets have liberal biases.

    The little boy who was injured in Aleppo which got on all news media and tried to blame the Russians for the incident. They missed all the other children in the area who were killed and injured by the rebels/terrorists. Who selected this photo now we know but it will not be on main street news.

    When CBS interviewed Bill Clinton about his wife's medical problems, he initially said that over the years, she frequently fainted, then he changed it to rarely, but on more than two occasions. CBS edited out the word "frequently" before airing the interview. Do you think they'd do that for Trump?

    Later... I see that The Hill reported on it, which is odd for the Hillary-Loving Hill.

    I usually watch CNN lately, they're not as bad as they used to be. I don't like Fox anymore either.

    I did watch the [CNN] Clinton News Network but changed to the alternative to get an unbiased view.

    When asked about the explosion in New York City, Hillary Clinton referred to it as a "bombing." “I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attacks in Minnesota,” she told reporters aboard her campaign aircraft. She then launched into a call for support of first responders in these attacks. Later, when Trump referred to the incident as a bombing, Hillary accused him of being presumptive in assuming that it was a bombing, despite the fact that she had also done so. No matter though, CNN cleaned up after her, editing out her comments referring to it as a bombing, while including screencaps scolding Trump for doing so.

    Would it be great if the next war all the military refused to go and peace broke out. It is a nice dream.

    It used to be that the press is the only source of information for the public. And although a particular newspaper sometimes makes erroneous reporting, it is somehow rectified by other publications. But now with the word media which is a mix of newspaper, tv and cable networks plus radio and other forms like the internet sites, I sometimes feel that there is disinformation in some issues particularly in politics. I agree that we have to find a more reliable source of information especially with the news since we are being fed with trash sometimes.

    Funny that the people in power do not like the truth being told. They use the MSM for their use trying to keep the people in the dark treating them like mushrooms [keeping them in the dark and feeding them shit]
    They have two justice system the one they use against the poor and their JUST US system for them

    CNN just quoted Trump as saying that "racial profiling was necessary" in order to combat terror, when what he actually said was that "profiling was necessary." They added the word "racial."

    There will always be someone wanting to control others. It's nice to think about world peace, but not everyone wants to live in peace. If armies didn't show up to a war, unofficial armies such as ISIS would, and we'd have to deal with them or be overrun.

    @Diane Lane " unofficial armies such as ISIS would"

    Which was "unofficially" created by funding and weaponry by U.S. Government, ostensibly to oust Bashar Assad from power, but instead, it now issues forth to attempt poisoning OUR existence, while Assad remains.

    It seems that's often the case. We and others set plans in motion to one end, and end up with something totally different. If only we were as effective as Obama in carrying out his plan to fundamentally transform America.

    Yesterday I wanted to see Benjamin Natanyahu make his speech at the UN. It was on FOX news. After all Israel is about our only Allie in the Middle East. I seen half of it and a Breaking Alert came across the screen. Cameras were switched over to lady Lynch, and the protests, riots in Charlotte, NC. I had a chance to see BiBi and hear his speech in it's entirety on the Internet. Guess you pick and choose what news you want to see and here on the Internet.:)

    Netanyahu is intensely disliked by the Democratic Machine, mainly, I think, because he is a man who speaks what he believes freely and openly, no mealy-mouthed responses or impressions given. I have been in hot water more than once for making it clear how much I respect this man. I'll say it again: If only he could run our country.

    What puzzled me was I was watching FOX news not CNN the Clinton News Network. Yes I've heard and read many negative things about him too. I also have great respect and admiration for him. Maybe some didn't like Golda Maier When she was prime minster, and even less that she chained smoked through the whole Yom Kipper War. She was a real image of my grandmother dad's mom, only grams didn't smoke.lol Getting back to BiBi his speech I found in it's entirety on Youtube, but have to look closely because they have more then one of his speeches. People don't even know about Yoni Netanyahu BiBi's brother who was second in command "Operation Thunderbolt" where he lost his life. It became a movie, "Victory at Entebbe." :)

    I watched a PBS Frontline episode about Netanyahu, and I was surprised how evenhanded it was. I had expected them to really slam him, but at least if they were, I respected the issues they brought up. You have to remember that Fox is owned in part by Saudis, and they are also funding Killary, and I'm sure they're no fans of his, so they would be fine with having his speech off the air.

    I suspect that deep down, among Israel's enemies, there exists a strong degree of fear, which might explain certain moderations expressed by those enemies. In short, I wouldn't mess with Netanyahu too deeply!

    Didn't know that about FOX news. They seem to give fair accounts on Trump. In fact change over from CNN because of their bias opinions. I really didn't care about opinions but wanted to see him make his speech at the UN. Will go on Youtube for Netanyahu speeches. Either that or Haaritz news on line, Jerusalem Post on line. :)
