One can hope.  I would love to see our media actually do their jobs.

I told them, that I had a conflict so I couldn't attend.  Also, I didn't know about it.

Well, which is it f$ckhole?

Like a child.  "No mom, I didn't hit her and she hit me first."

It won't matter to GOP voters. They are worthless cultish garbage. Their candidates can be corrupt, commit sex crimes, unwilling to talk to constituents, avoid the press, skip debates... all that matters is that they support Trump.

The orange asshole said some racist shiat they like and that's all there is to it. And don't you dare look down on the moronic trash for acting this way because it hurts their fee fees when libs do that. They'll keep voting for racist aholes to protest that libs roll their eyes at them for voting for racist aholes.

Why can't the media ask hard hitting questions like that?

From now on, you skip a debate, the person who shows gets the floor the entire time.

They should have done that with Trump and the town-hall debate, instead of letting him have time to think about the dueling town halls.
Just make him sit at Mar-a-Lago and watch Biden handle softballs like he handles his own balls.

He might be telling the truth, Kansas is a shiathole after all and not everybody has a phone or electricity or isnt married to their sister.
 
2020-10-30 3:16:20 PM  
Clearly the issue is Kansas is just too liberal to treat the Republican candidate fairly.

How do you know it went to the right address?  There's five Roger Marshalls on my block alone.  Found a dead Roger Marshall in the alley.  Left it by the trash.  Garbage man won't touch it.

They need to do this 10x harder in the future. Absolutely grind the GOP to dust perpetually with their own BS.

Only thing that would have been better is if it was a Sinclair station. Good on you Kansas for getting a spine and dealing with this clown

So nice. ^_^

Also loved their pushback on his bogus "set up" allegation.

What an absolute shiat-gibbon this guy is.

Go Bollier!!

The KC suburbs have gotten a lot more purple in recent cycles.

Marcus Aurelius: The media appears to be laying out new ground rules.


I spent some years in local media, mostly small town and county level stuff. Local politics could be dirty, and at the time my beat was a developing area where old school townies were trying to hold power against newcomers. Lots of dirty tricks, and some of these people were brazen liars and clearly dishonest.

I saw it clear as day and planned for it. I'd create a big paper trail to insulate myself against the expected lie. "He never called me" or "that was out of context" or a million other things.

More than once I called these assholes on their bluffs.

It was always satisfying, but it also wore me the hell out because you were CONSTANTLY on guard. You knew on any given day you were going to be attacked for some bullshiat, so you'd better have your stuff in order. Threats of lawsuits (which they never followed through on), yada yada.

I don't miss the job. It HAS, however, made me both respectful of the job the media has to do AND highly critical of the national media's many, many failings.

This is my "local" station, but it is the same people on every channel.  They're owned by Nexstar Media Group, Inc. who has only slightly donated more to the Democratic party over the GOP through their PAC this year.  Sometimes it is difficult to tell, though, that they totally aren't boot lickers.
 
2020-10-30 3:32:35 PM  
Figures never lie and liars never figure.

Marcus Aurelius: The media appears to be laying out new ground rules.


If a group of people kept calling you a liar every time you were critical of them.  If they constantly told their supporters that you were fake.  If they refused to answer the most basic questions.  If, on top of all of that, they made you be complicit or at least ignore those lies just so you could get access, you'd probably change how you acted as well.

No more "we'll take you at your word", it's not even "trust but verify", it's "show me the receipts before you open your mouth."

/They should have started doing it 20 years ago.
//Scratch that, 30 years ago.

That should be the default response to people who purposely avoid a debate: give your opponent the oppturnity to state their case.

Biden played it just right with a town hall when Trump skipped out.

We're doing our damndest in Douglas County to give her as big of a margin as we possibly can.

About as high as a building ought to gooooooo!
Everything's like a dream in KC.

All the tall buildings are on the Missouri side, anyway. Kansas just has suburban office park buildings that only seem tall if you're in Kansas.

They sent the invitation by certified mail on September 29. Given the self destruction of the USPS, it's possible that the letter hasn't arrived yet.

Certified mail has a tracking number and will show if and when a delivery was made or if an attempt was made but delivery could not be completed.
