The Democrats can go fuck themselves in their worker utopias of Venezuela, China the USSR, and Cuba. Leave already, you lying shits.

The press is committing suicide – and it will be the detriment of American democracy.

Marshall's response confirms this. One doesn't have to like Trump to see that the media is now an enemy of the country, an alien force working to achieve aims contradictory to the wishes of most Americans.

The press is only the profession specifically protected by the First Amendment. It's time the propagandists passing as media made way for real advocates of the Constitution and liberty.

Sorry, I realize now that the alternative to autocracy is not necessarily socialism; we could also have a functional democracy.

My bad for temporarily losing my ability to think clearly!

Right. The majority of Americans that voted for the other candidate.

Maybe the media should have done their fucking job for the last eight years instead of fawning over Obama and they'd either A) not be dealing with Trump or B) prepared to deal with him.

Call me when the media is 50/50 left right, no 95/5 left right.

>Facts don’t matter.

Nope. They sure don't. Especially not to the press. Not to anybody. How about some more fake news. The news media blew it hard this time.

One might observe that Russia has been more stable under Putin than just about any other leader in recent memory.

As if the USA doesn't meddle in other countries elections.

Facts do not matter when they are not facts indeed.

Jimothy, the majority of Americans didn't vote for Hillary. She received a plurality of the popular vote.

Ignore Trump. Ignore Hillary. The majority of Americans simply do not support the policies that neoliberals implement in Washington once elected.

For decades, the media has acted as PR for a cultural revolution that was not asked for or invited.

Indeed. It's *almost* understandable that you'd end up with Trump, for that reason alone. Forty years of neoliberalism and upward distribution of wealth from the poor and needy to the rich and powerful is bound to do that. It was reckless to gamble like that, but I understand. Trump's message was simply the only one a lot of people wanted to hear. Apparently the US media narrative hasn't caught on yet.

It's all the DNC's fault, really. They should have got something a bit more inspirational in than the "more of the same" that they did. I'm not of the opinion that Sanders would have been a bad choice, but for those that do, a more moderately centre-left candidate would have worked..

nbc actually has a good article about why the whiny left is ineffective.

It's not gerrymandering, it's geographic isolation.

You think being cucked by Putin is MAGA, but, sure, sour grapes or whatever.
