The mainstream media then ran cover for her and went with the narrative that some nefarious Republican made up those lies about her FAQ. Eventually she had to recognize that it wasn't the works of an evil Republican, but rather it was an "early draft" of her FAQ, which begs the question, WHY were those things even discussed to begin with?
    From my recollection the only "media sites" that talked about any of that were alt-right media sites. What I saw on the major news networks was coverage of Ocasio-Cortez and Markey introducing it to Congress. Any comments about cow farts, banning planes, and all that crap came from right-wing pundits, no one else.

It all good then."
    Dude, really?

    I would agree with you but amend the statement to say SOME media. You bet your ass there are media outlets out there that are nothing more than instigators for corporate interests. I believe that the wealthy need the middle class and the poor to grow to fortify their positions, so they spend a fraction of their vast wealth on media meant to keep the middle and poor classes fighting among each other, programming them to be good consumers, and promoting their wars that we die in.

    I believe there are still actual journalists dedicated to doing actual journalism. Our country has a Constitution that protects the freedom of the press. It is vitally important that we have that to question those in authority. Part of what those bad media outlets are doing to keep us fighting is claiming that all media is lying which is just not true.

You can sit there and downplay it and claim it was no big deal, but the media actually went with the narrative that the video was doctored.
    It was also a scene where the wannabe dictator president had a baby tantrum and tried to shut down the Constitutionally protected press for the horrific crime of... asking a question.

Trump shared an EDITED (as in edited for time, NOT doctored) version of this video on his Twitter and the media once again started to spread false information, telling you what to think. They found another video of Pelosi that was doctored to make her look like she was slurring her words, said that video was doctored, and implied that ALL videos of Pelosi slurring her words were doctored, some news outlets just flat out said all of the videos of Pelosi slurring her words were doctored and fake.
    Can you post links to back this up? Like a link to what Trump tweeted, a link to the non-doctored clip, and everything else you are claiming here?

    Wrong.

    This is where you went off the tracks. "What I saw" is clearly clouded with bias and stupidity.

    Any comments about cow farts, banning planes, and all that crap came from right-wing pundits, no one else.
    Wrong again.

    Really. And you would probably agree if your head weren't shoved up your own ass.

    I would agree with you but amend the statement to say SOME media. You bet your ass there are media outlets out there that are nothing more than instigators for corporate interests. I believe that the wealthy need the middle class and the poor to grow to fortify their positions, so they spend a fraction of their vast wealth on media meant to keep the middle and poor classes fighting among each other, programming them to be good consumers, and promoting their wars that we die in.

    It's not "freedom of the press" if the media only questions one side of the political aisle and then gives cover to the stupidity of the other.

    That's literally Fake News.

    It was also a scene where the wannabe dictator president had a baby tantrum and tried to shut down the Constitutionally protected press for the horrific crime of... asking a question.
    And you only see what you want to see. Both parties were wrong. And in this specific case, Trump actually behaved like a 17 year old instead of his typical 12 year old self.

    Can you post links to back this up? Like a link to what Trump tweeted, a link to the non-doctored clip, and everything else you are claiming here?
    These are available to everyone with an intelligence over 100, access to the Internet and a device to access said Internet. If you just want to wallow in ignorance, then pretend they don't.

    Let the buyer beware. Its a tenet of our capitalist society. I look at many sources and make my own conclusions.
    Horse shit. You view the same 2-3 sources that you agree with and draw your own conclusions from there. That's not "many sources".

    This is illustrated perfectly in your regurgitation of said sources that you claim is your opinion.

    It's amazing to listen to a person that preaches about the importance of bettering society for children who is so completely obtuse to believe that a mind is indeed a good thing to waste.

    But to be honest, society needs people like you Back. So we can point and say "See, that is why we still have flat earthers."

    Thats a bunch of bloviating without actually saying anything. You think the general population got less abortions because science showed us what now? Abortion is anti-human rights? What about the rights of the woman?

    Abortion rates are down because more people have better access to birth control. And its not a human being. Learn your words. You are confusing yourself. We are talking about fertilized eggs, embryos, and fetuses.

    You say preach, I say advocating for positive social change. Flat earthers turn their backs on science. Science has shown us that better access to healthcare is lowering the abortion rate. Someone posted an article about how a country that banned abortions had major problems. You are the one turning your back on these things in your misguided crusade to protect imaginary children.

    When you are taking away a humans right to life, the rest of the rights don't matter. It's about as anti-human rights as one can possibly be.

    "What about the rights of the woman?" That's what I'm asking, what about the rights of the 325,000 females that were aborted last year?

    "We are talking about fertilized eggs, embryos, and fetuses." Exactly, we are talking about a human being in a stage of human life. Please go back to 5th grade biology.

    It's sad to see an "adult" believe that a rabbit being pulled from a hat actually is magic.

    You know what has risen since the 80s and 90s? The availability and usage of birth control and condoms. Almost as if birth control works. So weird.

    Got to love the Left, if you don't believe the extremist climate change agenda of world wide wealth redistribution then you are anti "science" but if you believe science and want to prevent the murder of viable children in the womb then it's a case of cast science aside for whatever they want.

    So glad they are the "rational" party.
