      I don't think Anderson Cooper or Rachel Maddow are going to blow up a Starbucks anytime soon. So maybe we need to cool the rhetoric.  There are a host of real groups intent on doing us harm.

        But it doesn't bother you that media accuracy and integrity is sorely absent ? And that this is a fairly new phenomena ?  Even that our media should be first to inform US as to our enemy ?

          As a Republican, it bothers me immensely.  But it's part of the political landscape. People that go into the profession tend to be left leaning.  It's just their nature. You take everything with a grain of salt. To be an American, you have to be smart, especially when it comes to the media. We can win elections with our ideas but we have to run flawless campaigns. 

          Using terms like "hate groups" and the media in the same statement only plays into their established narrative that everyone who leans right is unhinged. So we have to be above that.  Exhibit A are Trump's spokespeople who come across as nuts and weirdos. Even Kellyanne Conway is rude to the press. While she may be a hero to his supporters, you can't win when you come across as rude.

          Some GOP pundits have been successful in getting media members to admit to their bias.  Chuck Todd and David Gregory have said that the press' open favoritism for President Obama affected their coverage in 2008.  That was an eye opener for me.  I'm sure you can find other admissions.  It will change. But we have to avoid looking and sounding crazy.  All they will do is say, "Look, they are nuts." 

          I don't think liberal media members are seeking to undermine the nation, they just see things differently. By engaging them on air in a respectful way (not like Katrina Pierson, et. al), we win. 

          We don't have control of the media or courts. It will take a generation to change.  But all of that can be overcome.   Yelling "traitors" and "turncoats" is counterproductive.

      Just because your man is losing don't blame the press. He has put his own foot in his mouth. What is it with the right and the constant misdirecting as to the reason for their failure to connect with larger part of the populace?

      Do you people ever consider that it is your ideas are what keeps you behind the 8 ball?

      But of course, you have your Fox News, infowars, breitbart and assorted rubbish, has that not been good enough for you?

                    The source code that powers the “Internet of Things” (IoT) botnet responsible for launching the historically large distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against KrebsOnSecurity last month has been publicly released, virtually guaranteeing that the Internet will soon be flooded with attacks from many new botnets powered by insecure routers, IP cameras, digital video recorders and other easily hackable devices.

          WhatI don't get is the differnce between what you folks always says is bias verses the truth that you simply insist on denying.

    When the Mainstream  Media  in America , once the very important center of the beginning revolution in America's start  , sacrifices it's core  qualities - accuracy - integrity - honesty ...........And sells it's collective soul to the ultra - left movement of  entitlement socialism ?

    AND that doesn't bother the populace ;   then  this  signifies a new beginning to the  direction of America's future  ,   I can actually fore-see an armed revolution ,   I know a lot of veterans who say ;

    "I  love my country - BUT hate this government .".......Get ready for whatever happens.
