re: Mass shooting at Mandalay Bay
Ok, so out of all the major networks, do you feel they lean left or right?

Where they are does not make them "The Left"

I would say most of them are left of center. But you said "The Left is pushing the narrative" The media is not the left.

Which is why I asked is Eric Randolph "The Right"? Both sides have subsets are bat shite crazy but they do not represent the entire "group" Do the people that have purple/blue/gree hair and claim to be 5 or 0 genders equate the entire "Left"? No they do not. Does KKK represent the entire "Right"? No.

People want to lump everyone in to a group and not understand that there are divisions and it is unfair to just say "left" or "right".

For what? Stating an opinion? Not lumping an entire group like you do?

Listen dude. I know there's shitty people on both sides like I know there are wonderful awesome people on both sides.

But when talking about the media? It's nasty liberals running the majority of the show. Just ask one of CBS's recently fired executives.

Okay you are not understanding what I am getting at then. So, I will try to explain it again, because I must be doing a very poor job of it.

We, as a society, have become so fractured or segregated, that we lump everyone who does not share our views into "Left" or "Right". We also hold responsible a whole side for something a minority of a group does. I am just trying to point out a whole group is not pushing a narrative or making a stance. It is subsets and it is dangerous and led us to what we've become, a fractured nation. Instead of blaming an entire side, maybe just think for a second and place blame or give accord to who is actually doing whatever it is that is being done. Maybe if some people will start thinking like this, we might realize we are not as bad off as people think we are. Hell I am glad I do not live in Europe, Africa, Australia, or anywhere else than the USA.

re: Mass shooting at Mandalay Bay
Bro I hear you. But I'm not talking about actual humans because trust me I get along with about everyone I meet face to face. i worked in two restaurants in Atlanta, one I was an extreme minority as far as race goes and the other was 80% lesbian.

I loved both those places and nearly everyone I worked with. Still have friends of completely different political views as me and I respect and care for them because I can tell the difference in good people and bad people.

So save me the change my life speech about how I don't need to lump everyone together.

But when reffering to the media? They push a dangerous liberal agenda and unfortunately a lot of weak minded people are buying it and that to me is causing the divisions, not people you see on the street in everyday life or only certain people in certain states.

i mean one of CBS top executives completely dehumanized all republicans. And if you don't think most of them feel this way, then I guess we will just have to agree to disagree buddy.

Me too, hell im proud as shite to be from Alabama, when I use to be the biggest hater when I was younger. I literally made fun of rednecks, hated church, and made fun of country music every chance I got. Because that's all I ever heard about Alabama from the outside. But when I was able to see it from the outside I learned to appreciate it a lot more.

now that I'm older and see the bigger issues going on in the world I couldnt ask to be from a better place.

You are right, don't lump everyone together. The problem is the Lefts leadership, Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton have done it for 9 years. They have accused Trump supporters of being racist and white supremists. Explain it away.

If you think that most of the news and Hollywood is not Left, you are out of your mind. Trump gets 90% negative press. He could kiss a baby and they would label him a pedophile.

One of the victims from Sunday was always at the Chilis by our house every Friday. We occasionally go for Friday happy hours and she was always there. We didn't know her though.

Guess she won't be there tonight. Gonna stop by for a drink in her memory.

This is a great interview done this morning on KNPR's "State of Nevada" show. The Undersheriff answers all kinds of questions from conspiracies to rumors and the timeline of events. I highly recommend a listen.

New information is coming out about the man who killed 58 people at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Metro's Undersheriff Kevin McMahill joins us with more.

Most of them are far left.

The media is not the left.


The media is the PR arm of the political left in the U.S., a few outlets notwithstanding.

quote:

Which is why I asked is Eric Randolph "The Right"?


He considers himself on the right, but he does not speak for the right, nor does he have any sort of power to shift the conversation (or what is perceived as "normal" or "centrist") to the right.

quote:

I'm not even asking you to claim Antifa or BLM (although the latter is clearly a creation of the left and used by them on occasion) - but we're talking about the news rooms of ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and either online or traditional "papers" such as NYT, WAPO, HuffPo, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, AJC, etc. - ALL of those media outlets are clearly and solidly on the left, many of them way out there.

Period. Arguing otherwise defeats your credibility, IMHO.
