1 - NPR has lots of sponsors

2 - NPR is extremely transparent with the articles they post, posting corrections and updates with timestamps and explanations

3 - NPR doesn't have a history of doing any if that "native-advertising" and I can't imagine them starting now given #2.

Next year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner will feature a biographical historian, instead of a comedian.

It would be hilarious if he just sick-burns the president and media the entire time.

I see our resident super serious civility expert Erick Son of Erick is extremely online waxing poetic about Pinochet’s helicopter rides.

I hope Chuck Todd invites him on to finger wag the left the next time someone tells Sarah Sanders she isn’t telling the truth.

I’m double posting but has the NYT ever explained their obviously Rudy Giuliani planted “no Russia link” story in the run up to the election?

It has to be one of the worst gaffes I’ve ever seen given the time spent on EMMAIIILLLSSSS

Quote :
"And yet I’m alarmed at how quick NBC is to mechanically argue the contrary, to be in favor of policies that just spell more conflict and more war. Really? We shouldn’t get out Syria? We shouldn’t go for the bold move of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula? Even on Russia, though we should be concerned about the brittleness of our democracy that it is so vulnerable to manipulation, do we really yearn for the Cold War?"


Was good until here. No one is saying we shouldn’t try to do any of this. Just that the guy in charge is incompetent and is likely going to cause more suffering (Syria) or competely blow the first real chance of it ever happening (North Korea).

Also, it completely ignores the massive increase in deadly force under Trump (MOAB and drones particularly).

** let me amend. I shouldn’t say “no one is saying.” Lots are. They are a problem and wrong. A good number of people, however, agree with the action but don’t trust or think the current president is competent enough to not drastically fuck it up. FFS, he floated invaded Venezuela. There is nuance that people willfully ignore and bucket people.

After the networks chose not to air Obama’s 2014 immigration speech what are the chances they don’t air Trumps tomorrow night?

I’m guessing they proudly air it in its entirety. Too scared of bad faith right wing attacks not to.

How is it even possible to fail so badly at understanding the difference between egregious and purposeful lying about EVERYTHING versus mistakenly saying a slightly incorrect number and then correcting it. Jesus fucking Christ.

Paul Ryan blatantly lied about far more than this for years and we STILL get nauseating pieces about how he is some great policy wonk.

That's so bad I didn't think it was true but, no, there it is:

https://www.apnews.com/3bf581a53684440b92121bb1b8ae43a9

The rest of the fact check is all about Trump's lies. So they decided to both-sides it with Eric Stratton logic and make that particular 'point' the tweet.

Terrible article. That is the greatest power that congress has as a check on the president. Whether you agree with building the wall or not, elections have consequences, and right now congress is controlled by a party that presently doesn't want to pay for a wall.

If Trump thinks boarder security is so important, find other ways to secure the border and make it an election time issue. But don't expand executive powers just because congress wont go along with it.

This is the perfect way to force the border wall to be an issue. The Democrats won't be able to hide behind the "this is all Trump's fault" for more than a couple of missed federal paychecks.

It was his main campaign platform in 2016, and it got him elected. He needs a win here to have any chance at reelection in 2020, and he knows this will go ugly for the Democrats long before it does for his base.

I believe the suggestion is that Jim Acosta is enticing the president to stage a false flag national emergency at the border.

The tweet below seems to suggest a similar tactic:

^^^He's at a location on the boarder that already has (parts of) a wall, and there isn't any thing resembling an emergency situation. If he wanted to prove his point, he should have gone to an area without a wall or fence.

So I tuned in to Hannity today to see if his acolytes are abandoning ship yet.

Nope.

On the contrary, Hannity was with Trump today, doing an interview. Unreal.

If I were Hannity though, I think I'd be reading the writing on the wall by now. Any sane person who saw that speech can't possibly think that this is someone he should be throwing all of his chips behind.

But I guess if figures if Trump gets impeached, he'll still have a big enough audience to hear him complain about the impeachment.

^^ It’s mildly amusing that people still think this mythical anti-Trump Republican Party still exists. Why would Hannity jump ship? The entire Republican Party and conservative movememt IS TRUMP.

I know that is hard to admit to actual conservatives who are in the GOP but it doesn’t make it any less true.
