    Meh, its Tuesday.

    Which means it's just another day for the media to carry GOP water. Gotta keep it close, to keep those sweet, sweet clicks/likes/views/ratings going.

    Seriously, fvkc so-called "journalists." Fvkc 'em in the ear. Turn 'em around, & fvkc 'em in the other ear, the fvkcing GOP water carrying fvkcs that they are.

    In the meantime, just an other reminder that we are dealing with a gang of psychopaths, corrupts and criminals who will do everything to stay in power. The next few months are not going to be a walk in the park. Buckle up kids.

    Speaking of water carrying, is anyone watching this shit on ABC?

    Stefanopoulos barely challenges his outright lies, and allows him to bullshit for minutes at a time. This isn't much of a "town hall," so much as this has become another Trumpian press conference.

    The right wing media will selectively edit clips, and post his bullshit as a triumph. The MSM will wuss out, not challenge his bullshit, try to "be fair," but end up being used like a rented mule. Again.

    So is Biden going to get this same opportunity? And when?

    Apparently, Biden declined for lack of a mutually agreeable date.

    Yeah, I'm dumbfounded too.

    What, a free hour on network TV in prime time to lie, with little-to-no challenge to outright lies and bullshit? A free political ad for a GOP candidate?

    Don't hold your breath.

    I don't know who agreed to put Trump in this " Town Hall" but it is a complete fiasco. The dude is lying and contradicting himself over and over. I would love to ask the undecided in that room their thoughts afterwards.

    Apparently, Biden had a town hall on CNN yesterday. Not on network TV, so it won't be covered the same way.

    I gave up after 20 min.That is the longest I have seen this low rent con man talking. That was embarrassing. George's face speaks for all of us.
    I enjoyed the " Herd mentality" comment too.

    To watch one Trump speech or interview is to watch them all. It's the same thing over and over. Lowest form of fake propaganda.

    In the meantime, both Biden and Harris refer to the ticket as the "Harris-Biden Administration"....smh. How the fuk you let that slip.

    I didn't watch the ABC thing, but it sounds like he lost a debate against himself.

    Not that it matters.

    So I have an ardent Individual One supporter, one who posts every day pro-President stuff. Most is from FoxNews, but other occasional shit shows up. Today (last night?) she posts something about how there are 10mil TB cases every year and hundreds of thousands of death every year and why are we not focusing on that, but COVID-19 is such a huge focus. Previously, to see if she was movable in any way, I responded to one of her posts about the protests and rioting and such. She came back with some stupid shit about how Biden wanted the violence, etc. But, last night/today was a meme, not a FoxNews story, so I thought I might try and calmly correct her. It was interesting how I (along with somebody else she knows) pointed out that TB has been around for years and I pointed out that there are vaccines for TB and that we in the West have a very low incidence of TB. Her response was was asking if I though it not a serous issue. (In my head, I'm thinking, "you're drunk posting, right?") But I calmly corrected her, and pointed out that much is known about TB, but very little is known about COVID-19. She said the media was sensationalizing this pandemic. And I said, some are over the top, but it should be because it can be compared to the Spanish Flu which had 3 waves (or as many as 5 depending on the source) to at least 1920. And it was interesting that she did not respond negatively to me, even when I countered her belief of the media. Huh.

    So in talking with my mom this week, she talked about how she is a poll worker for both the general election but also early voting. I brought up the mess of the Florida Latinos and how she needed to do anything she could to help get them to vote and vote Biden. She kept saying that as a poll worker and needed to be non-partisan. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Maybe.

    Just wait for the breathless headlines, and the carefully parsed "critiques" that fail to call out Trumps lies by the MSM, and Fox/OAN declaration of triumph.

    It isn't "just" the free media by ABC. Its also the wussified reporting by the MSM, and the active cheerleading by conservative media outlets. The shitty reporting takes away from reporting on Trump's shitty words/deeds. (Anyone talking about Russian bounties nowadays? How about our fallen being called "losers" and "suckers?")

    Long as Zuckerberg is still in charge they ain't doing shit. Same with Peter Thiel being on the board. (Man is he keeping a distance this election). While I'm at it, ******** Sheryl Sandberg too.

    If I had it my way, I'd delete my Facebook but there's some family members that only communicate through it and I like them. Otherwise, I'd have deleted my account long ago. It's deleted from my phone and tablet, and only checked on the computer.

    I'm not exactly sure how the poster got into the group, but it was wild to see trolling there with either a fake or compromised account. I hate giving my neighbors credit, but I was impressed by how it was handled and nobody took the bait. I can only imagine how that would have gone over on pages that are more susceptible to that shit.

    This is great digital content

    TV is a visual medium. Harris and Biden need to work the medium, contrasting to President Nappies

    Same here. It is the easiest way for me to keep in touch with some family members and friends. Otherwise I would have been out long time ago. This place is beyond toxic. It is a danger to democracy.
