    But WHY  is the news media so leftist ?     Because in a fair and balanced environment like in the past ones ;  The ideology of the left would always lose in the electoral process ?   So they absolutely HAD to pair up leftist political ideology and--- leftist media influence !

    Is the left ready to return to the political center ?

      Your man Trump is just a temporary aberration, don't be too boastful and pompous just yet.

      We will bring him down shortly, with the so called liberal media, Hollywood, academia and the smarter half of the American populace lending a hand.

        LOL  When half the populace takes their cue from Hollywood and the lying media I'm not sure I'd call them "smarter", myself.

          I knew that I would get you with that one. What is it with you folks that think that every press report that is adverse to Trump is fake news? Surely, you can see what is being implied here.

            Because they are all spun into opinion pieces, editorials, instead of news.  That requires not only truth and honesty but a real effort to present the whole picture.

        The smarter half?

        This whole thing gets so tiring.

            Cred, you have been dancing on the edge of the precipice of rhetoric since Pres. Trump's election, but responses like this one are why I consider your comments seriously. Kudos to you.

              I am glad that you see that I am not all over the Galaxy with my
              intense dislike of the current occupant of the White House. I promised my adversaries that I would be fair in my attacks on Mr. Trump. Not beat him up for things that he is not responsible directly, even though he encourages a climate that invites things out of the woodwork that should best remain there, nor will I focus on trivial gossiplike concerns.

              Trump's record and current actions makes it impossible to be truly neutral in regards to this man, I only promise to be considerate in my thrashing of him.

      Most reporters I know definitely would not consider themselves leftist, and quite a  few are actually quite Hawkish when it comes to our military........I haven't seen the Panthers, P.L.O., or for that matter the Planned Parenthood or Environmentalist painted all that great by the media so what makes you think they are leftist.....
      I have some friends who are actual "socialists" and they would even scoff at that notion...

      Trump does not want a fair and balanced media. He wants only the "fair and balanced" Fox News to report on him.

          And you can't see what's wrong with banning all media in this country except for your beloved Fox News?

            If media was truly  fair , balance , honest and  informative , their would be every  need to encourage  more !
            But when its "fake ", it may as well not BE  at all !
            Too bad the left can't see that ---- It historically proven.
