I don't think anybody takes this administration seriously anymore.

You wouldn't hear Obama say "don't blame me msnbc said it"

You just wouldn't

You also wouldn't see Obama on twitter at midnight or early hours talking nonsense. But that's what we have.

US makes formal apology to Britain after White House accuses GCHQ of wiretapping Trump Tower

UN.

F*CKING.

BELIEVABLE.

Reports are that Spicer crossed paths with a British official today in Washington and they had a very heated exchange with Spicer 100% on the defensive.

Spicer resigns in 5... 4... 3... 2...

Key 03-17-2017 03:50 PM

Just curious Chula, when does something become believable? We all kow this administration is a joke. Saying their actions are unbelievable seems like a cop out.

It's the precedent he's setting that's unbelievable. Not the news itself.

Those that voted for him wanted an "outsider". Well they sure got one. Kinda like, "Hey, you know what? Instead of having turkey again for Thanksgiving, like we've always done in the past, let's go crazy and have dog food this year."

Key 03-17-2017 04:00 PM

I love that analogy. Nicely done Chula. I agree with you.

Anteater 03-17-2017 04:03 PM

Obama used to blame stuff on Fox News all the time. Trump just doing that on a much yuger scale. :tramp:

I like that dog food analogy.

Frownland 03-17-2017 04:04 PM

Those Brits can ****ing get over it. How about genuine issues like policies instead of the most boring comedy of manners that I've ever seen in my life? (that's saying a lot btw).

It's really not about the Brits, it's about GCHQ.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Govern...s_Headquarters

US Intelligence Agencies and GCHQ have worked closely together for decades to insure stability on the planet. Spicer pulling them in to try and defend Trump's lastest BS fantasy is WAY beyond below the belt.

There's lines you can creep up on, and occasionaly poke a toe over, but then there's lines you simply don't blatantly step over - for the sake of all parties involved.

Frownland 03-17-2017 04:37 PM

Spicer is an idiot for that, truly. They're just as dumb for getting upset about it from people who notoriously act like a bunch of jackasses. Nobody comes out of this looking good.

Spicer is just a sock puppet for The Donald. And no, they are not dumb for being upset. If today, you and I share a bunch of extremely sensitive secrets, that only we know about, it's obvious we've built up a ton of trust in one another over the years, right?

I come on MB and post that Batlord likes ****ing rocks in the hope that there might be a snake under one of them. My own intelligence agencies come out and say that my accusations, while entirely compelling and utterly believable, are unfactual.

So I then post, well Frownland told me it's true.

What happens to our trust?

GCHQ has a long history of not making public statements. They stay above it all. The fact that they came out on this allegiation so strongly speaks very large volumes.

Frownland 03-17-2017 04:58 PM

I'd be like "nah" and then you'd look like an idiot while I went on with my business that mattered.

Don't be lame Frowny. No one likes lame Frowny. Be the engaging Frowny. Even if your point has been proven as weak, own up man. You blamed the Brits for being whiny. I pointed out why that was not the case.

And your first recourse is to go into "lame Frowny mode".

I like the other guy a lot better.

The plan is part of a broad policy shift to grant the CIA and the military more autonomy to target and kill al Qaeda and ISIS militants without presidential authorization in Syria and other countries, U.S. officials said.
So basically open ended authority to take military action but deniability for Trump, Neat.

Not really. He blamed Fox News for turning the ACH and later the situation with Benghazi into widely debated points of criticism for his administration.

If Trump had more finesse, he'd have done what Obama did and became buddy-buddy with all the top guys at Time Warner as opposed to just guys like Rupert Murdoch. When the vast majority of your media that reach the greatest population centers are all centrist / left leaning, that's who you want on your side when establishing an administration.

I was wondering...
Could we just post a wrap up summary every
few weeks and get back to talking music again?

Wait didnt Donna Brazile say it was Russia who was part of the debate question leak? Ha what a dumb ****ing bitch. Big ****ing surprise. No shock here once again this Russian narrative is retarded.

Kinda funny how CNN wont touch her with a 10 foot pole. That's when you know how ****ing corrupt your party is when they're leaking debate questions and one of the heads of the DNC isn't welcome on the Clinton News Network.

2020 will be awesome for the democratic party at this rate. I look forward to seeing Hillary Clinton getting wrecked by her own party.

Trust me, I don't think anybody who would invest the time into doing it would be unbiased about it and it'd ultimately become a semantics discussion muddying the facts. Or sumn stupid like that.

Well, I just did it - and it took seconds.
...just a look at all of the calamity of the past weeks at a glance.
Yeah, there's all kinds of stupid shit spewing all over the walls like a busted blood vessel going on for nearly 400 pages,
but at least it could be in a concentrated form and everyone could actually spend their time discussing more MUSIC.

You came to the wrong place to discuss music.

What do you think this is?

Some kind of music forum?

MFW we're discussing politics in a political forum.

He blamed them for being a joke network

Trump gets his news from them very seriously and then says "oh well Fox news said it"

How do you not see that these things could not be more different

As for the second half of this steaming pile, I'm out of ways to explain that the news isn't left you're just right wing

It's on this graph that's a tiny bit more accurate.

That graph is based on Pew poll results.. It is from 2014, but to say something based on actual statistical analysis is less accurate than some made up chart with no research? :(

elphenor 03-18-2017 08:08 PM

This doesn't answer the question of whether a news organization is actually right or left but just exactly what it says "who watches these networks"

Important that this is strictly Americans polled yes conservative Americans don't like CNN on average but conservative Americans are considerably further on the right than most western Democracies
