    Obama, the worst president this country has ever seen or will see, was worshiped.
    After saying something like this (especially when you consider the clown before him)…
    If you can’t even get yourself to admit to basic facts, maybe you should just sit these discussions out, thanks in advance.

    Then perhaps you should take your own advice.

    Thanks in advance.

    Then you aren’t watching Fox News like 50% of America… or YouTube… or the countless other right wing news syndicates that praise him consistently.

    Are you genuinely trying to sell the idea that the media in this country isn’t almost entirely left leaning?

    The things loony toon leftists tell themselves. No president has received around the clock negative coverage like Trump, and that’s just an objective fact. Obama, the worst president this country has ever seen or will see, was worshiped. If you can’t even get yourself to admit to basic facts, maybe you should just sit these discussions out, thanks in advance.

    Obama being the worst president this country has ever seen is a “fact”?

    Lol, ok…

    Media exists on many platforms… there are the good ones like BBC, NPR, CSPAN, etc.

    There is CNN that hates Trump and rightfully so…

    There is MSNBC which is left-wing biased

    There is Fox New which is right-wing biased

    ABC, NBC, and basic cable is fairly neutral…

    YouTube is a right wing haven

    Facebook basically got Trump a huge bump during 2016 via Russia (try to deny that, please)

    Countless alt-right: Drudge, INFOWARS, etx

    So the “media” is complex… bias is often obfuscated as “fake”. Opinion misconstrued as fact.

    It’s also super ironic that the actual fake news – like doctoring Pelosi as drunk and Chron posting a Trump rally that is dated etc – that comes from these alt-right channels… they aren’t mainstream… those guys have a bias but try to still REPORT the news.

    Then you have personalities on the right like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Alex Jones that are just fake news fear mongering, anti-journalists… the left has Bill Mahr and formally Jon Stewart and Colbert, but those guys are a SATIRE.

    So it really is more complex than “the media is liberal”.

    This might be the funniest thing ever typed here:

    “No president has received around the clock negative coverage like Trump, and that’s just an objective fact. Obama, the worst president this country has ever seen or will see, was worshiped.

    The only “brain dead” people are the ones that blindly ignore Russian interference.

    Now social media platforms are on the right? This just gets better and better. Conservatives often wonder how leftists are so easily fooled, how it’s so difficult for them to see the blatant manipulation from the MSM, and then you read a thread like this and it all becomes crystal clear. You buffoons are oblivious to what’s happening in this country, who controls information, and what their agendas are.

    I remember when Carson was doing well in the polls early on in the primaries in 2016, and I remember the MSM treating him like they’ve treated Trump since he was elected. They trashed him relentlessly, they falsely accused him of making things up from his past. Carson used social media to set the record straight and expose them as the liars they are. Carson may or may not have made a good president, but nobody can say he’s a bad guy. He has done more for this world than most people ever will, and yet the media treated him EXACTLY as they treat Trump today.

    Anyone who isn’t in a vegetative state can easily see the obvious here, that as long as a candidate has an “R” in front of their name, your precious “balanced” liberal outlets will trash them. Why do they do this? Because they know those who vote Dem are very easy to manipulate, they know they can determine every thought in your head, every opinion you have. They know they have you in their pocket, and that you’ll repeat everything they tell you to like the good little trained parrot you are.

    This isn’t even a conservative opinion, this is just basic common sense. The left, including the right leaning (HA!) social media platforms you mentioned spend every waking moment trying to censor and silence conservatives. Nobody who has the truth on their side has any desire to silence anyone, this type of behavior is reserved for those who know what they stand for is wrong. The Democratic party literally doesn’t exist without lies, manipulation, double standards, hypocrisy, or THE WALL. Everyone knows it, stop letting them play you as a fool.

    Escobar, your rant is moronic. Both sides have a media that creates an echo chamber.

    Conservatives have plenty of platforms. I could go into all your little detail on your rant – like FB NOT TAKING DOWN the doctored Pelosi video and point out this shadow censorship is nothing more than what you cry about… but there is too much stupidity to unpack.

    There is a difference between biased but still reporting the news like CNN… vs actual fake, doctored, or inaccurate news meant to mislead and be intentional.

    The right is not above that, and on some crusade to bring down the media/deep state.

    Both sides have an echo chamber… I was trying to outline that. It isnt as simple as “the media is liberal”… but if you’re too stupid to wrap your head around context, then continue to beat the drum of my side is better than yours.
