    I got this comparison from Lionel of Lionel Nation web videos. He talked about a cat who chases a laser light the cat will chase the light every where even to running into the wall. The cat never realizes that someone is controlling the light. This is beyond the cats understanding having said that this is exactly what Trump is doing to the media and they have no idea they just keep chasing the light with no idea Trump is running it

    This may seem off topic, but wait for the punch line. There is currently a tropical depression forming in the mid atlantic. Models are suggesting it will reach tropical storm status in the next 4 days. The tracking models suggest somewhere near Bermuda, but with the possibility of the mid Atlantic States.

    Brace yourself for a news overload about a Tropical Storm named DON. o_O

    Thanks for the link as i watch hurricanes probably more than most as living in the Dominican Republic. Anything more than a two day prediction you have to take with a grain of salt. I have been watch hurricanes here for over 15 years and watch them predict ones going over my head and find later they were hundreds of miles away. I will be keeping an eye on this.

    @Martin Alonzo, I watch out for possibilities of storms in the Gulf of Mexico, primarily as 50%+ of U.S. refining is along the gulf coast.

    This thread changed topics on the second post. I think that's a record.

    If the tropical storm does occur and it gets anywhere near D.C. then Tropical Storm Don will be the news and how it gets spun by the media would be interesting and amusing.

    If it is a choice between a topical storm that might kill hundreds and CNN getting a piece on Trump I know what CNN will carry and it will not be the storm.

    You are seriously underestimating the media's ability to make everything about Trump, imo.

    I'll help with the possible headlines...
    • A Tropical Storm named DON develops on the heels of DONald Trump taking the U.S. out of the Paris climate change accords.
    • DONald Trump tweets up another storm... this one called DON.
    • Trump Storm DONald spawns Tropical Storm DON.
    The possibilities are nearly endless and will be spun faster than T.S. DON's windspeeds, imo. Climate change/Trump/storms/Paris/global warming! Think about it.

    Many will unfortunately never see that the Trump analogous 'light' is not a beacon but rather bait.

    Could CNN be bias when over 100 of their top officials are of the same group? Fare and balanced I don’t know you decide.

    You seem to have a 'thing' for Jews. BTW you don't think Jews can be fair and balanced? Why not say what you really think. Otherwise some might think you're biased or maybe jealous.

    I will never let any seemingly pointed reference (negative) to Jews go without response.

    "of the same group? Fare and balanced I don’t know you decide." Seems a none to subtle suggestion that Jews are not.

    In the United States, at least, Jewish people are overwhelmingly liberal Democrats. That's no more racist than stating that blacks are overwhelmingly Democrat, except that blacks are even more overwhelmingly Democrat. It is not racist to state a fact.

    I totally agree, and certain ethnics do certainly gravitate to parties, but your reply while accurate seems a non sequitur since party affiliation or 'racist' was not at issue as I saw things. Stars on people send a message, or should. I saw a suggestion that Jews might not be fair and balanced (especially singled out) as opposed to..?? Who?

    Bigot,racist,Nazi, UberFeminist and similar labels are used far too often.
    Sources of remarks are often helpful. Like I can say Hitler and Nazis had Jews wear stars (Yellow) that's a documented fact. If I see a star on a picture otherwise it's an unproven label, unproven unless there's a factual source referenced and even then it might suggest an agenda. Jew baiting is a popular forum topic in some venues though facts supported on any subject is grist for the mill.
    I have know way of confirming CNN is (suggested) infested with Jews so the fairness of news 'may' be unfair. Innuendo can be as denigrating as is 'damned with faint praise.'

    Not sure why the Star of David is featured so prominently or even if accurate. If you follow the premise, then where would Jared and Ivanka Kushner stand?

    I don't know, and I don't even know if everyone on Martin's CNN list are Jewish. My only point in this is that Jewish people in America tend to be liberal Democrats, and there's nothing whatsoever racist in acknowledging statistical fact.

    Probably most are but I haven't really looked it up. There are always exceptions. I'm sitting here thinking of all the Jewish people I know. :)

    One came to mind and I think he's a Republican but I'm not sure.

    Hope I'm not being racist thinking about who I know that is Jewish.

    Just remembered that @Steve North is Jewish but I don't know his political views and maybe that's how he likes it.
