Bloomberg news declares that during the campaign they won’t do any investigations of or critical editorials of Bloomberg or any of the other democrat candidates, but will investigate & do editorials on Trump. That’s probably the most blatant liberal bias I have ever seen by a major news outlet. On the one hand, at least they admit it.

That’s the end of Bloomberg news. Taibbi had a pretty good piece on it in RS. I figured klam would’ve linked it by now. He’s usually on liberal media bias issues like white on rice

Yeah, that's pretty much right there for all to see.

Klam is not that generic. He strikes me as more of a wild rice guy.

This was really stunning to me when it came out.

Whatever think tank is advising him should be fired ... there’s no way to spin it in a way that keeps Bloomberg from folding. They have thousands of journalists who have just been told to not be journalists

I mean, that Bloomberg would not dig hard into Dems comes as no surprise. But they aren’t FOX, CNN, or MSNBC. They at least had the patina of a serious news agency. Now that’s gone.

Imagine if you were an actual investigative journalist who takes your job seriously and your employer has basically told you you aren’t a journalist anymore as long as you work there.

Either he doesn't care or he didn't think anybody else would care.

I would of sold it and used the sale to bolster my election image about being impartial.

Klam is not that generic. He strikes me as more of a wild rice guy.

All shades of brown. :mrgreen:


Thanks!

(I think)

If you want to hear a good example of where I currently sit Taibbi is still a good example or listen to the Jimmy Dore interview on the most recent Ari Shafir podcast.

They are both rather unfriendly to the Democratic Party not to mention the Russia situation. :nod:

And someone up above mentioned Bloomberg and liberal in the same sentence. :rofl:

It’s just nice (after about a decade) that I’m finally getting props for my Taibbi/RS references which were all spot on. Better late than never, Cidney! :clap:

Oh...and Assange is still right too.

Boy when you go with fallacious logic you go all in

BTW I never said Assange was wrong or right. I have argued that he should not be subject to US laws. The person who should be in jail for life had his sentence commuted by Obama. Snowden will get his, eventually. Hopefully whoever is President then will take national security more seriously

BTW how’d ya like the enhanced Russian and Chinese cyber capabilities over the last 3-4 years? You can thank your hero Snowden for that

Or how about our increasingly difficult contact environment overseas? That’s your boy Manning

Taibbi isn’t wrong about everything. Just several things

It was a compliment... :thumb:

You are much more nuanced than just plain white rice. Hence the wild rice comment and the implied meaning of all the different varieties/colors that it comes in.

Granted I do not agree with some of them, but the world would be a "somewhat" boring place if everybody thought like me. Intellectual variety is a good thing. :nod: ;)

Instead of the tired old “he’s right about this and therefore he’s right about everything”

That’s lazy. Shame.

I would think so. Unless the blacks can get behind a gay man, Pete will have a difficult time getting that bloc to vote for him.
