    This is such BS.  Bias in the media was not discovered or pointed out by Trump.  It's always been there.   

    Absolutely not true...and you should remember back to Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, Chet Huntley, etc. who just told what happened without putting their personal bias or opinion into their reporting.

    What passes for reporting today would have no place by the Op / Ed pages 50 years ago...and that is where it belongs.

    Had those guys existed in today's information age with all of the political talk shows, I have zero doubt that those guys would have been accused of bias just as today's media people are.

    I agree...but because they would be doing exactly what the Fox, CNN and PMSNBC clows are doing now as that is the current 'news' climate.

    The journalistic world has changed....and not for the better.

    I’d guess $10 - $20 million ………more defendants on deck.

    Funny how crazy CNN is treating Romney as the new torch bearer for the pubs.  He votes for impeachment and they go apeshit  today.

    Mitt Romney moves from Massachusetts to Utah and wins the US senate. 
     

    Hillary Clinton moves from Arkansas to New York and wins the Senate. 
     

    Carpetbaggers

     

    edit: I have a problem with the lack of residency requirement in running for office. That being said, I just watched Mitt Romney give his impeachment vote statement.  
     

    I’m impressed.

    Phony.

     

    Did he happen to mention his ’12 campaign adviser served on the board of Burisma as well.  Obviously he does not want any scrutiny there.  Screw him.

    It will be entertaining to watch right wingers applying the McCain treatment to their once "he's a great businessman" presidential candidate. Now he's a fake and a moron because of his vote. No doubt Medal of Freedom winner Limbaugh will have a parady song or like. 

     

    It's kind of like watching professional wrestling fans being drawn predictably through the emotions of the plotline when their when their wrestler's former tag team partner turns on him.

    I think we all can imagine Quaker sitting in a high school gym while some former hot-shot neo-con is speaking and, in tears, blurting out, "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMNIT!!!!"

    He might be a good businessman, but we now know he comes first, before America’s interests.  We also now know he has a conflict of interest due to his campaign manager being on the board of Burisma, which will remain under scrutiny.  So yes, we now know he is a phony.  As previously mentioned, screw him (which is exactly what the media phonies will do once he no longer has utility for them).

    Okay. Just very predictable.

    When you're "party before country", the concept of a person on "your team" breaking ranks with the party is THE ULTIMATE SIN.

    When you are ‘person before country’, that is where most draw the line.

    What if Romney (and McCain before him) actually believed in the way they voted and felt they were doing it for the country's benefit?

    This is what sucks about our democracy....its controlled by the $.  I am sure 30 or so senators would have voted another way ( for and against) Trump if it weren't for the $

    I don't think that it is so much the money...but getting re-elected. 

     

    IMO, if we had established term limits for the House and Senate, thereby not allowing being a Senator or Representative to be a career, then we would see more votes that were reflective of what the American people wanted rather than pandering to those influential minority groups that keep people in power.

    Gee, what about congressman Jeff Van Drew leaving the democrat party over the impeachment debacle for reasons of principle.  Why has the media not lifted him to the pedestal? 

     

    Biased, controlled mofo’s
