Well, they got him elected the first time by covering every fart salad that came out of that diseased hole under his nose so at least they're being consistent.

By fawning over Trump for finally becoming President every time he managed to read a teleprompter for a solid two minutes? Unfair!

The only time traditional media treated Trump like an adult was when he bombed Syria, then they didn't begin criticizing Biden until he pulled out of Afghanistan.  Tells you a lot.

Meanwhile, the Syria story has fallen apart and everyone stopped covering it.

Biden (and the Democrats) fortunes in 2022 and 2024 are mostly out of their control.  Voters will reward or punish them based on 1) How they feel the economy is going and 2) How they feel the Pandemic is going.  Hopefully #2 isn't as much of an issue by 2024 but will be a major factor in 2022.
The challenge for them is that the GOP can score a win just by farking these 2 things up and letting the Democrats take the blame.  Mitch McConnel is in a prime spot to screw the economy as needed and Trump and the GOP have found millions of willing volunteers to refuse the vaccine and masking to to help prolong and worsen the Pandemic.  I won't be surprised to see ads next fall proclaiming that more people have died of Covid-19 since Biden was elected than had died before that date - implying with no real evidence that it's his fault that he didn't send the National Guard door-to-door and give the shot at gun-point.

Horseshiat. If we get Trump 2.0, it's because we have 80 million degenerates who hate half the country and/or have to capacity to perceive reality objectively.

The media got Trump elected and have been sucking him off ever since. And he and Republicans in general get to keep crying about the "liberal" media.
 
2021-12-04 6:07:19 PM  
He's going to be president again, stop with the fantasizing, accept it, and start coming up with practical solutions instead of wasting words on the internet.

Maybe start by voting Republicans out of state legislatures or demanding your reps work to immedietly remove the electoral college voting system in favor of national popular vote.

If it were not for the fact that a large part of the world still can't afford enough vaccine or get it delivered to them, I would wish for a variant that had a 100% mortality rate among the unvaccinated and 0% among the vaccinated.

I barely voted for President Biden but I think he's doing a very good job. I love how he keeps President Trump's promises about Afghanistan, Infrastructure and the Covid-19 relief checks. Everyone should be somewhat pleased.

But I turn on CNN to endless panic, disappointed progressives and lots of concern trolling.

What's good for CNN isn't good for Biden, Democrats or America. CNN is Fake News, as Donald JOHN Trump told us.
 
2021-12-04 6:09:08 PM  
Yes. Both-sidesism by the corporate media when Trump wasn't even attempting to do most of the responsibilities of the Executive Branch and overstepping his authorities in others, are the seeds for the next, more competent fascist to take control.

That SEAL died because Trump ordered a useless raid to prOve he was tougher than Obama. It accomplished nothing, which is why Obama kept refusing to order it.

How is that ever going to happen? Most of the country is made up of states that are over-represented by the electoral college. So how is that ever going to be overturned?

Dusk-You-n-Me: The media has cut down Democrats and coddled Republicans for my entire adult life. Glad to see some are waking up.


I mean, there's some of that, but most of the issue is generated by the parties themselves.  The way the media works isn't necessarily trivial to figure out, but there are a lot of basic rules and trends that make political messaging no more complex a craft than any other form of advertising... and the Republicans consistently hire people to stay on top of that (or have them hired by their sponsors, e.g. Fox News and all of Koch Media's bullshiat), while the Democrats consistently... don't, either through incompetence or some principled refusal to engage with the system which is also just incompetence with more steps.

They also tend to legitimately fail a lot because they can't get their farking house in order, so they have the misfortune of there being 100% legitimate complaints to be made about them that aren't tan suit shiat, but real substantial issues that are harming people.

Like... I'll be the first to admit that the nature of the GOP's agenda makes succeeding at it easier, since fascism has no actual practical agenda beyond holding power so farking up and shifting blame to the Jews, sorry, the "cultural bolsheviks marxists" is just as much a success for them as actually succeeding at implementing their policies, but like... tough shiat.  Also that's a low farking bar, we shouldn't be setting the bar for ability to govern with that being acceptable, nor suck the Democrats' dicks for managing to clear it.

// Messaging, if you're unfamiliar, is basically "picking what the simplified summary of a thing will be presented as", which is a process that actually is not all that hard when you're the group originating the policy.  Like, we should be hearing a lot more about what the pandemic social spending bill has done for people and about what the BBB plan is actually going to do; the fact that we are only hearing about the immediate size of the budget it requires (which isn't even the price tag since the BBB plan is completely revenue neutral at worst and will generate a profit in most likely scenarios, according to both the CBO and common farking sense) instead of anything it will do to improve lives is a messaging failure that's.... frankly, entirely on the Democrats, the Republicans did less than nothing to sabotage how it was presented.
 
2021-12-04 6:19:47 PM  
Imagine if Dems started backing incredibly popular policies, instead.

/is centrism dead?
//no, it's the working class voters that are all wrong.

If the media had pointed out how unqualified  tfg** was for the office he was seeking, as well as anything he's attempted in his life, that would have been fair coverage. 

In 2016, tfg** was a sideshow they turned into a ratings bonanza. Imagine if Marianne Wilson received nonstop coverage of her every utterance, became the nominee, lost the election by a significant margin, but miraculously swing states fell her way all within the same 60-minute span.

Ridiculous, right? The media could see she wasn't a valid candidate. Why can't they see tfg** wasn't in 2016, 2020, 2024, or ever?

The expectations are so low for Republicans, and even lower for the detritus like tfg**, mtg, bobo, gaspedo, gosar, brooks, gohmert pyle, maddy cauth, zodiac, and hee-hawley, that if they commit a career-ending farkup, it's overlooked because the media and Republicans stopped vetting candidates after the Palin disaster.

I was driving behind a brand new VW Bug with a big Trump sign in the rear window. The Line plate was DILLIGAF
My wife was intrigued enough to Google it. Urban Dictionary says it stands for: Do I look like I give a Fark?

I assumed she was probably heavily armed in light of the development that the parents of Mich. shooter were
complicit in his act.

I mean, sure, the media is pathetic.

But the real fault lies in right wingers. That we allow them. Terrorists and plague spreaders that constantly participate in trying to steal America. Sneaky, diseased farks, leaving their snail-of covid filth everywhere they go.

Remember, while the media may suck, the talking heads may have no spines and the people listening dumb, the real fault is always in right wingers - the shiatty filthy disease spreading people that bring nothing to humanity.

The media has long been biased against Democrats, and no political affiliation receives more immediate skepticism and outright disrespect than the far left.

The media would almost always talk about "what Trump meant" rather than showing the clip and talking about what he exactly said.  It's because Trump is so farking stupid and uninformed it would create panic about national security (a million Americans plus have died due to his negligence).
Oh, and Hillary Clinton was crucified by the press from around 1992 to 2017 for a very wide range of "crimes" and was found innocent every time.  Meanwhile barely a peep about Trump and the FBI planting a fake story about her committing treason, or the fact that they all knew George HW Bush was banging his personal assistant his entire presidency while they crucified Bill Clinton's affair.  Or that Meullers report demonstrated evidence of crimes that Trump committed yet no one lifted a finger to prosecute him.

How about one year of kissing conservative butt,continuing the oligarchy,making Trump's tax cuts permanent,making a Republican in charge of the DOJ responsible for insurrectionists and prosecuting terrorists which he hasn't really done.
