"99 % of media covers things the same way and have been for decades "

The media took a major turn to the left during Bush 43's presidency, then went off the cliff with their blatant campaigning for Obama.

"you guys get 1 guy elected in 8 years and blame the dems for trump "

I wanted Trump to win, so why would I "blame" anyone for helping bring that about? I said they helped make it happen.

There were 3 elections in those 8 years. We won one of 3.

Also during Obama's 8 years, do you have ANY IDEA what happened to the number of democrats in the US Congress, in state governor mansions, and in state legislatures? The democrats lost 1,000 seats in those areas, during Obama's 8 years. Conclusion - people liked Obama, they rejected his policies.

no clue what Sinclair Broadcasting is....
I didn't vote for him in the primary, but I sure voted for him in the general election, I donated money, made phone calls, and had a big sign on my lawn. It was going to be him or her, and on the issues that matter to me (freedom, national security, the economy, the unborn), if I have to choose between those was a distasteful choice, but a very easy choice.

Trump calls out violence and bigotry on all sides, and somehow THAT makes him a Nazi sympathizer. That makes all kinds of sense.

I saw Chris Wallace last night, and he is no Trump fan. Wallace played 15 different video clips over the last 2 years, of Trump denouncing David Duke, and racism of all kinds. It's never enough for the kooks, it never will be enough, there is no way they will be fair to him (and 'fair' can be critical, if he deserves it) for two consecutive seconds. Fortunately for him, I think he couldn't care less. He took their bias and clubbed them with it like a baby seal during the campaign, and it brought people to his side..

"no clue what Sinclair Broadcasting is"

Me either. But my guess is, it means you and I are Nazis.

I heard that when Trump woke up this morning, his first words were not "Hitler is bad". Must mean he's a Nazi, right?

Sinclair Broadcasting =

"We reached out to Sinclair Broadcast Group for comment on these allegations of bias, but had not received a reply by publication time. The company did issue the following statement to Politico regarding John Oliverís HBO piece:

While we appreciate John Oliverís unique brand of humor, we stand by our approach to sharing content among our stations to supplement the excellent work our newsroom staffs do every day in service to their local communities."

So it's OK that CNN and the others are bias and one sided, but in a capitalist society where competition is encouraged, apparently it is big news that there is another company with opposing views. I get it.

CNN owned by Turner Broadcasting who are owned by Time Warner who's largest shareholder is??? one guess, that's right, George Soros.

conclusion =
Communism = OK
Patriotism = not OK

Globalization and socialism will not succeed, we can't let it ever.

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

Bull#^&#^&#^&#^& !!!
The only thing that was rolling was Obama's agenda for Islam in this country, % of people on the hand out programs, illegals getting into the country, the deficit growing, Obama's golf game and elaborate family vacations all over the world on our dime.
Sure, the unemployment rate was down but with millions of companies cutting employees hrs making them part time then they have to go find a 2nd job just to survive, you call that lowering the unemployment rate ???
Night & day difference in consumer confidence now from the last 8 years.
