Remember Bill O'Reilly's show? I remember.

Anyway, John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain, who is also apparently a Fox News personality who was regularly on a show called "Outnumbered" that had the main premise of one male guest every episode with a rotating panel of female hosts, is quitting. She didn't really say why. Given the rampant sexual assault and harassment going on at Fox lately, it could be any number of things.

Is it normal for Tea Partiers to actually be part of the Russian media?

Looks like Jimmy Kimmel is falling back on baseless emotional demagoguery. Kimmel isn't going to be impacted by the negative impacts of Obamacare. He doesn't have to endure its business mandates. He is too dumb to see anything beyond black and white terms where only he wants to save babies from dying and his opposition wants to kill babies. When he frames it like that what does he expect to happen?

The notion that media is all left slanted is ridiculously narrow

Conservative media is just prevalent in different ways

Hell I'd say most media isn't even all that liberal, it's just that the right has moved so far right that a middle ground looks left
True on all accounts. Don't forget that Faux News is the most popular TV news, and the vast majority of radio news is blatantly right-wing.
The "librul media" myth turned out to just be a slow-burning "lugenpresse" accusation.

Remember when Obama threatened to take Fox News off the air for their horrible, disgusting, and dishonest reporting?
Yeah, me neither.

It is about being in power versus being the dissenting opinion. Banning things always looks sweet when you think you are the one who decides what gets banned.

In the Bush administration, the Republicans controlled the government due to how much the Clintons sucked. Concurrently, the greater culture was right-leaning while the counter-culture was left-leaning. Based on the struggle between the forces of cultural change versus rigidity, I would expect that.

In the Obama administration, the Democrats controlled the government due to how much Bush sucked. Concurrently, the greater culture and counter-culture were left-leaning. The left became "conservative" in a sense.

In the Trump administration, the Republicans control the government due to how much the Democrats sucked. Similarly, the greater culture is now left-leaning while the counter-culture is now centrist to right-leaning as the left retains its legacy of "The Man". Formed late in the Obama administration, that counter-culture got a president elected. The left won the "culture war" a while back, so it still has both its power and its underdog points, while more conservative forces remain stupid. The far right never went anywhere.

In the near future, I suspect that a Democrat will be in the White House due to how much Trump sucks and the pattern will continue.

I guess someone made a fake facebook profile pretending to be the mother of a dead soldier and used it to try to defend the president's disgusting comments. Fake news at its worst.

A lot, I would say.

I can't help but wonder how /r/The_Donald is reacting to this. I always tell myself not to make a reddit account (there's only one subreddit I follow regularly and it's slightly nsfw), and the lunatics there tend to remind me. Oh, Reddit, you're so cheeky!

Lane Davis, a 33 year-old former intern of Milo Younhoyahaodn who lived at home with his parents, has been arrested for the killing of his father.
"In a seeming confession, Lane Davis told detectives that the fight had started over 'whether toddlers could consent to sex or not,' and his father had called him a Nazi and a racist. "
https://www.thedailybeast.com/youtub...ing-him-a-nazi
He has 11k youtube subscribers, and r/the_donald has already gone through and deleted many of his comments there.

Sad waste of a man. Is this and the pizzagate shooting what we have to look forward to in the era of fake news?

Kak, your story got me searching the Google. I found this: Reddit is removing certain groups now.

I didn't see anything about TheDonald.

I bet a ban will be coming since those nuts will probably start brigading reddit more than they already do.

False equivalence. If you look hard enough, you can find people saying bad things in pretty much any sub. There are a lot of false-flag post attempts made as well. Lots of "As a black man..." "November 4th!" etc. We already know paid Russian trolls and botnets have canvassed twitter and facebook with things like that (the seemingly latest being trying to keep the NFL protests relevant and in the news).
Subreddits that were banned like r/nazi and r/zoophilia inherently promoted violence or harm. Meanwhile, other subs like r/holocaust (a holocaust denial sub) are allowed to exist because they're not actually breaking rules. If you want to find subreddits that you can legitimately compare them to, go check out subs like r/whitesarecriminals (a blatantly anti-white sub).


Anyway, in actual news, there's a lawsuit involving the election results in Georgia, however "a computer server crucial to a lawsuit against Georgia election officials was quietly wiped clean by its custodians just after the suit was filed, The Associated Press has learned."
https://apnews.com/877ee1015f1c43f19...ter-suit-filed
I wonder why they would do such a thing??? Thankfully, it seems that the FBI made an image of the drive (drives?) in question, so they may still have this evidence.

Roger Stone, a big proponent of allowing bakeries to deny sales to gays as he believes that is their right as a business, is suing Twitter for suspending his account.

Hopefully the full irony is not lost on people inclined to disagree with him in both situations.

I'm not aware of anyone pushing for "douchebag status" to be a protected class.

If you are unable to see similarity between the two scenarios, then your contemp for Mr. Stone for suffering the same brand of hypocrisy is laughable. Your fates have become intertwined.

If you can't see the difference between "your posts were against our terms of service" and "the business of fags, niggers, and kikes is not welcome here," then I'm really not sure what that says about you.

1) It was more like, "the cake message you desire is against our terms of service", but more importantly,

2) I might have misread your first post. I understood it to be you calling Stone a hypocrite.

I was indeed pointing out that he's big on businesses being allowed to do whatever they want, but now he's suddenly upset when a business did something he didn't like.
