Give an older dude a break. Also, you never let me know what you thought about that David Gilmour distortion affect pedal.

If Trump doesn't legalize DMT I'm going to organize a women's march.

Lobbyist Podesta Got $170K To End US Sanctions On Russia | The Daily Caller

Sorry if this has already been posted, and I tried to find a source like the BBC or another left leaning site. But this is super fun.

Might as well post a link from The National Enquirer. The Daily Caller is ****e news. They published that story over a week ago and not a single major news outlet has picked it up?

Hard to have much faith in a website with such poor copy-editing ('think' and non-possessive Clintons and Podestas). I also loved the use of the term 'super-lobbyist' what with Trump's cadre being all about 'draining the swamp'.

Skimmed the article - the links don't make the strong case the article thinks they do (for instance, the fourth link takes you to a search bar - Podesta, Sberbank, Tony Podesta return no results, I don't know what I should be searching for). And without pointing the reader to exactly what they should be understanding from those links, it's pretty clear the jargon is there to obfuscate things.

We're also forgetting some of the context here. I don't think Tony Podesta was employed by the Clinton campaign. Lobbying on behalf of Russian banks (also, Cyprus and Luxembourg, but it's not as sexy to call those out) probably immediately puts you in a moral grey area, but it's hard to see the straight line from this behavior to excusing Manafort or Flynn's interactions as implied and definite, respectively, representatives of the State.

If there is something in this article I'm not getting, please point it out. Always willing to take a look at something from another perspective.

Why is BBC left leaning? I'm curious.

It's always been that way. As Frownland pointed out a day or so ago, their reporting can be great. But in terms of editorials and general viewpoints given out on TV/Radio/other platforms, they always tend to lean left - and often quite heavily.

There was a study done: http://www.cps.org.uk/files/reports/...9cb1-303547657

But I would look more into the editorials and general punditry than what the study hints at.
