It's quite comical reading the dire predictions in the event of a Trump win. You can certainly see who gets their opinions issued to them by the morally corrupt MSM.

 


Can you give any examples of this moral corruption you speak of?

 

Questioning the legitimacy of a presidential election is morally corrupt according to the alt:right.

 

Oh wait...

Stitch up

 

A set up, a trick. If someone stitches you up, then they're playing you for a fool. It's often used when framing someone for a crime.   - Urban Dictionary  

 

 

 

In that sense, sure.  I can see where they will try to stitch Donald Trump up.  Kind of makes you feel sorry for him, eh?  Awe :(

I hope you are trying a shot at sarcasm or joke because media that puts power in check is not morally corrupt. It's doing its job.

 

Unlimited power with no checks is the culmination of moral corruption.

Obvious sarcasm but, the media on both sides of the fence have stooped to new lows.  The left-wing moreso than the right but both are guilty of spreading creamy smooth BS far and wide.

Is there an "ignore user" function available for those of us who don't wish to see the diatribe from the Trump apologists?

I think thats a fair call. Its fine if some like Trump and some don't, discuss it. What I don't like here, is one who supports one side (of any debate) takes his/her side as the correct side, therefore the others are idiots, or described in a similar manner. We talk of democracy at times here in this thread, yet that isn't always the case by some taking their side as correct and the other is wrong. Its actually "I believe this, you believe that"

Well I was asking for specific examples rather than a simple list of news organisations. I'll wait for cadman on that one.

Fox News is the number one cable news channel in the USA. You can't get more mainstream than that.

Sean Hanity has a show on Fox, as far as I know it's an opinion show. Once again, Fox is number one and Hanity is right up there.

I watched Fox News during election and imo they should rename to Trump News....never seen biased reporting like it before....no wonder Megan Kelly left.

There actually is a serious problem with that "both sides of the debate" argument.

 

On Trump's side is racism, sexism, lying, threats of vengeance.  He crosses the line on what my ancestors fought and died to protect.  Yours too I expect.  That he's a racist, misogynist liar is NOT up for debate - it's simple fact supported by a vast amount of evidence - much of it directly from Trump.

 

Apologists made the same mistake with Hitler.  You could (and many did) "debate" that Hitler was good for the economy, reduced smoking rates, supported the arts, "Made Germany Great Again" - for a while. 

 

The other side (Trump supporters) might not be "idiots".  Denying what Trump actually is as a starting point for "debate" is however ludicrously stupid.

You would be amazed how little of the above matters to many Trump supporters. I have heard of many people agree with your sentiments above yet declare that they still support him because he's a straight-talker (whatever that means) and is against that nebulous concept of "political correctness" (again, whatever that also means).
