Now, let's take the "who started it" out of the equation, and agree that the issue exists. Whether it is left or right who started it.

Now, I would be inclined to say it's possible that republicans started it with Obama, and now the left/media has made it 100 times worse. But it doesn't matter who's fault, because the problem exists, and is not going away.

As far as "fake scandal", we are in a situation where we are searching for the cause of, as you say it, "what's happening" prior to even knowing "what's happening". What the hell does "Russian collusion" even mean? Nobody knows. We are searching for proof of something, turning over every leaf, without actually knowing what we're looking for. This is what I mean by "fake scandal".

Finally, as far as the media; there is no difference between Fox and CNN. They are both the same thing. They are all fake news. They all are ratings. The left media lies mainly by omission and controlling the narrative. The right does the same thing but they control far less of the narrative in terms of pure bandwidth. If you think the left media is squeaky clean then I don't know what else to say. The media is all horrendous.

The problem I think I am having internally is, that, how is it that nearly 1/2 the country is seeing such a drastic reality than the other half of the country? Which side is right? Is one side completely seeing the "truth", and the other side is being fooled? Is there some gray area here? Are we all actually being fooled somehow? Why can't I have a conversation with somebody (not here necessarily, but anywhere), and back one thing that Trump does without being completely polarized into this crazy fascist that is evil in every sort of manner? It happens nearly every time.

Meh, kind of start to tune the media out after a while. I just assumed everyone else had too, but I guess I'm wrong.

Jib May 22, 2017 11:50AM

I am talking about the social angle, the cultural/societal shift that is taking place among the population at large.

Jib May 24, 2017 08:09AM

There is no budging, so we have to resort to hyperbole to get our points across.
