I'm even more skeptical of the media than I am of Trump. You see far right conservative news sources using anonymous sources all the time, and they are rightfully discredited. Why should the NYT get a pass just because they're setting the agenda? They played a part in creating Trump...but the genie isn't going back in the bottle. Time to up your game MSM...

Funny how Trump's "fake news" strategy has taken hold with so many people.

Why did Spicer not call the NYT's story "fake news"? How come he didn't deny it? Like I said, it's already an official record. The note takers aren't the leakers. It's once it's made official and circulated that someone in the Washington belt decides to hand it over. Everyone I've been listening to the past few hours agrees on this. On both sides.

There's people within the administration covering their asses right now as not to be found complicit later down the road.

No one in The White House wants to become part of the Trumpgate Seven.

Maybe because even the evil baddies realize that's a shit strategy/term.

Why didn't Obama deny being responsible Sandy Hook? Must've been the shooter himself. (These two situations are not equivalencies, but the logic found in them are identical).

I'm glad you're not a lawyer dude.

And the basics of linguistics

But yeah if just one Manufacturing Consent. Maybe more important now than ever. Chomsky was dealing with a world that still valued honesty though. Not that they weren't liars but Trump supporters celebrate brazen and open dishonesty. It's a new paradigm.

Indeed.

Comey and congress agree to a fully public testimony after a week of people thinking it was only going to happen behind closed doors.

This is going to be so much fun.

Its kinda hilarious that literally nothing Trump has done could be provably impeachable, improper legally or an act going beyond his available authority. Anonymous sources, anonymous insiders, non issues etc. One coming out after the other, dying a quick death, as if it's all pretty much hot air to make him look like he's genuinely acting like a complete tyrant.

But damn Donald, put out a cohesive message. Jesus. Give these guys an inch and they will travel round the world with it.

You lost me right here. You need to fly over to the US and spend some time watching the news cycle this past week. Heads are exploding (Scanners like) on both sides of the aisle. Trump's lawyering up big time and his inner circle (non-family) are crumbling.
