Journalism might be dead

Post by spot2180 » September 16th, 2019, 11:32 am

With CNN's major announcement of a 'shocking' , also false, Trump action that 'burned' a high level Russian informant, and now the NYT's running with a garbage story about Justice Kavanaugh , it seems like there is no real interest in getting a story right. You can blame a lot of people for the divisiness going on in our country today, but the media is at the forefront of all of it. CNN and the NYT are nothing more than propaganda wings for the left. And it seems that the democratic wannabe nominees all ran with those stories making themselves even less worthy than they already were.

sure. it's also a morally relevant society. rest assured that every lefty/progressive/dem is sitting secure in their thought that 'wow, these guys might suck, but they suck less than DJT'.

and so it goes.

I tend to think, no, scratch that, I observe that there are a lot of folks who could care less about public safety, employment, unemployment, segregations/racism OTHER than as a political position to leverage to their benefit.

Mainstream media Fox ruined Journalism. The other networks just followed.

You all are missing the forest through the trees. The NYT identified 20 witnesses that could corroborate Deborah Ramirez’s story and Kavanaughs behavior at Yale. All of which approached the FBI during the sham investigation but none of which were ever interviewed.

I told you all this would happen. A sham investigation would have serious holes that journalists would identify and fill. Now we have further unconfirmed evidence that we have a sexual predator at our highest court. All because the Republicans HAD to have their appointee right there and then.

And never forget, the majority of you all found the senate testimony for Ford very credible. Including Fox News hosts. Until you heard the spin machine later that night from Fox News.

It is not politically beneficial to have Kavanaugh removed because he’ll just be replaced with an equally conservative judge with a more pristine background. Probably a woman.

The point is to not have a sexual predator in the Supreme Court. My stance has ALWAYS been investigate properly and exonerate if nothing is found.

If witnesses can be independently corroborated then you would be complicit in defending a sexual predator but also defending a judge who’s perfectly okay with lying under oath.

Of course they did. Because it allows you to have a scapegoat for the lying pieces of shit you decide to listen to. They've been lying for three years and you don't seem to find that a reason to stop watching it.

Do you think the folks not holding them to account are a reason why journalism has been ruined?

Kavanaugh is not guilty of any of the manufactured lies whipped up by the mob media. Lies spewed out like hot vomit so many times that they have become the truth. The media and bloodlusting power hungry leftists dismissed Kavanaugh''s version as a lie simply because he was connected to Trump...Warren and Karmela calling for his impeachment should disqualify them from being president. What kind of lies could their minions make IL about any conservative to ruin them.
