Maybe you should spend less time invested in the news cycle? Look at what people have actually said and done. IRL.

If millions of fans get riled up about Bieber's haircut, does it start to matter? In my experience, people are VERY skilled at treating non-issues like apocalypses (such as illegal immigration or the War on Christmas).

The news cycle, when it comes to politics, influences a vast majority of the US voting public (and Wall Street). Not saying that's right or wrong. Just saying that's the way it is.

Trump only got elected because of the news cycle for crying out loud.

Crooked Hillary. Lock her up. Personal server. Repeal and replace Obamacare. Make America great again. All part of a nightly news cycle during the leadup to the election.

Trying to dismiss it, or ignore it is pretty naive when it comes to politics.

Bringing Beiber into it? Sometimes you grasp so hard at straws to try and make a comeback it's beyond ridiculous.

What's going to be the headline on most newspapers tomorrow - worldwide - and what's going to be the leading story on all of the morning news shows. What's going to completely distract Trump's middle east trip?

Like it or not. It's the current reality. Again, the vast majority of Americans pay very close attention to the news.

I'm saying don't let public opinion shape your own. I hope you agree.

current reality is current news narrative?

I'm not stupid dude. I follow lots of news. I form opinions based on lots of input. Go listen to Beiber.

There's no proof that he's done this. Like, none. He fired a guy.

He's admitted to firing a guy who was heading up an investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia leading up to a presidential election to relive the pressure on him and Russia to Russian officials in the White House oval office. His spokespeople are not denying that fact.

Always disliked Alan Dershowich after the whole OJ trial, but I seriously think the guy has gone senial. The arguments he is trying to make are being ripped to shreds by pretty much everyone.

He was the director of the FBI. Investigations continue with or without him. You know this. It wasn't an issue, aside from the way it was done.

In fact, more and more random investigations seem to crop up every week or so.
