    Just saw this report on President Obama giving a rally speech in Las Vegas...
    As it turned out, the video and sound does not match the arena.
    The total dishonesty of the media is shocking.
    Most Americans don’t even know what is going on, how they are being manipulated, and the news perverted...
    And they complaint about being labeled “fake news”.

        The self imploding of the Obama Legacy is actually fun to watch ,   and more so his message !   Which in effect means the alt - liberal message ,  which in effect means  democratic message .

        I am reminded of Jim Acosta saying the Trump rallies were" too loud " and wanted them turned down so that HE and CNN could be heard ? 

        Oh the Beauty !

          That’s the thing, isn’t it. Unless you’re there in person you’re relying on a source to provide you with the pictures/videos. You can only use your eyes to view what those sources give you. So yeah, sources are kinda important afterall....

            Just think, the media has portrayed Trump as this monster, racist,...masogynist...
            They were OK with him, before he ran for President. He was on TV with a popular show, he was cameo featured in Home Alone and other movies on location in NYC. He was invited to all the big Democratic donor parties and reception, Hillary and Bill was at his wedding...

            What changed?

            How can people believe all the lies about Trump when he has been in the public eye most of his adult life.

            Don’t get me wrong, he is no boy scout but he is no monster either.

            He ran for president to MAGA. Why is that a bad thing in the eye of the media?

              You could say all of that about Bill Cosby, too. They’re okay until they’re not. Having been a popular celebrity in the past doesn’t mean they’re incapable of saying/doing things that piss people off and make them unlikeable.

              I don’t believe any lies about Trump. I use my own eyes and ears to process what he says and does myself and that’s enough for me. You need to get it out of your head that the only possible reason someone could not like Trump is because they’re being brainwashed by the media.

                No, that is not what I am saying.
                I understand Trump is unlikable. He is doing it by design.
                He figured out how to beat the media at their own game,
                He say something outrageous to distract them.
                Meanwhile he is happy doing the thing he wants to do...make America great again.
                The media focus on what he say but do not give him credit for what he actially does.

                With President Obama, it is just the opposite. They love him and love his speeches... the thrill up the leg and all...
                Yet, he has done so little and instead divided our country and corrupted our justice department, and the IRS. All with the support of the media that just can’t get enough of him.
                Let this be a lesson for you.

                Don’t focus on what a person say...
                Only judge someone by what he actually does.

                  Nah, I don’t believe people should get a free pass to say things without consequences. To me what a person says reflects on them just as much as what they do. “Actions speak louder than words” only applies when the words are in direct conflict with one’s actions, it’s not an excuse to say whatever you want and then pretend it doesn’t matter.

        What propaganda? The event is captured on video. The news reported something that it was not. On the other hand, Trump’s rally is 10 times larger and the media ignore it for the most part.

          When are you going to get it? We are dealing with a very dishonest and biased media. Much worst than anyone suspected. They will do anything, including creating false stories, to attack Trump and support their democratic candidates.

            Does the website with the videos have an anonymous owner?

            Does either video have the original date?

            Does the first video have a Cspan logo while the other has no source on it?

      Use your head and stop focusing on the source. It is high time all of us focus on the media who is distorting reality rather than reporting on it.

        Okay. So what is it exactly that I’m supposed to be outraged by in this article?

        The two clips aren’t comparing the same part of the speech and are from different perspectives, so where’s the supposed descrepancy?

        Also, lol @ the tweet: “Anyway this angle doesn’t seem to be playing on TV, wonder why.” .....maybe because it’s an angle of the back of everyone’s heads? Really not that controversial.

        1. jackclee lm profile image85
          jackclee lmposted 2 years agoin reply to this

          The question you should ask is how many people do you think is attending this event? The media wants you to think it was a very popular event with many more people in the audience. Guess how many are actually in the audience?

          Contrary that with one of Trump’s rally.
          There were 100,000 that came out in the latest Texas rally. Did your media report that?

                    After all of these years of debating many people on here, you seriously think I'm afraid to debate you?

                    Sorry, I'm not. There is nothing to debate with someone who posts fake news from an anonymous website other than why he keeps doing it.

          No, meaning you should believe your own eye and ear instead of what the media tell you or show you. They are not to be trusted...

            Promisem, just like they’ve been lying to you about conservatives. How many conservatives do you know? What are they like? What do they want for our country? What have you been told about them?

            I am a conservative and proud of it. I have been publishing here for 8 years. My position on issues are clear as night and day. Do I sound like the conservative the media is presenting to the American public?
            yes or no?

                In what ways? Please explain. I am curious. You seem to think you know me well. Let’s see how well you really know a conservative.

                I can take you on point by point. Any issue you want to start. Remember, we are discussing what the media portray a conservative to be as oppose a real live conservative like me.

                  I know you publish fake news from an anonymous site like the one above and use other fake news sites to support claims that are easily proven false.

                  We have been down this road many times, and you still insist on publishing propaganda that is harmful to the country. You also try to change the subject when caught, like now.

                  More to my point, you did not answer my questions:

                  1. Does the website with the videos have an anonymous owner?

                  2. Does either video have the original date?

                  3. Does the first video have a Cspan logo while the other has no source on it?

                    I rather believe an anonymous source that speak the truth than watch cnn or msnbc spew lies after lies and call themselves a news organization.
                    One of us is being lied to and it is not me my friend.

                    That is our whole problem. We have a generations of liberals who are brought up to believe everything they see on cnn and read in th NYT is gospel. Well, I hate to break your bubble, they are all BIASED.

    OP.   At this point the only reason the left cries foul when we talk of presence of media bias is simply because the media and the left are partners in all the lying  .

    Why would the left "shoot themselves in the foot " ?

    Jacklee , What do you think ?  It sounds very much like a major desperation coming from the left after what .....a  hundred or more obstruction / impeachment issues failed by the party of Trump naysayers ?   

    The left has failed miserably , now they attack personalities here in the place of an uncaring Trump ?
