Trump went above and beyond.

Ramos was rude. He got booted. When let back in he was able to ask a series of questions and enjoyed an interesting and full back and forth.

Trump engaged the topic and the social activist quite fully and that 5 minutes played well for Trump and poorly for Ramos, among most folks.

:naughty:

Dawg......

I think the PBR has fried your last functioning neuron. Either that or you have been drinking crux's Kool-Aid. How sad that you oppose adversarial journalism at a time when we need it most. Even sadder is the fact that, like so many I see writing and commenting these days, you are treating matters of importance as if they were no more than a B-grade movie on a Saturday afternoon.

Enjoy that popcorn and PBR......and if you can fiddle, you can do so while we go down in flames.

Relax, Fangzy!

Some things ARE worth drawing one's sword over. This ain't one of them.

Ramos disregarded the time worn adage; "Don't engage in a urinating skirmish with a pole cat!"

Said pole cat being, to date, undefeated in the arena of verbal combat. Too much of neo-journalism tends to be reactive rather than reflective. Yes, at some point, questions need to be asked and answered. Whether or not the "tone" of either the questioner or the responder has anything to do with actual journalism depends 1) on the results and 2) whether it resembles what might be considered journalistic integrity or the kind of discourse found in a teen age chat room.

Ask a dawg if he wants a bone. If a bark isn't a satisfactory answer, asking a dozen more times is only going to result in more barks.....and maybe a bite.

Talk about a separate reality....

Postby Crux » 2015 Aug 30 16:17

Ramos was a badgering mentally unbalanced cut-in-line rude social ACTIVIST...
Trump had just called on a female journalist, and Ramos jumped right in with his RANT.

It is sad you don't see that, especially when Trump then FULLY ENGAGED HIM!
Did you even watch the whole video from jump to the end of the debate?

Trump gave him 5 whole minutes, much to the chagrin of the other journalists!

Watch the thing again....
That exchange with Ramos was helpful to Trump, and seen that way by MOST.

Most of what passes for journalism today is advocacy "journalism". Ramos did what everybody has been calling for.....pressing Trump for specifics over how, exactly, he plans to put his grandiose schemes into action. The point was that Ramos took on more than he could handle, the result of which made him look more like a heckler than a journalist.

The day someone gets a straight answer out of Trump, or any other politician running, will be a red letter day for the Fifth Estate.

Politics, (not the issues themselves) as it manifests itself today, IS a B-grade movie on a Saturday afternoon. One can only hope there is enough popcorn and PBR on the planet to get to the final scene.

And we haven't even gotten through the cartoons yet!

So, Are the Media Biased? WELL YES...

Postby Crux » 2015 Sep 09 08:50

And even so, the Democrats are in a TERRIBLE news cycle. Bad economy, in bed with big corporations and lobbyists, helping Iran get nukes, money, ballistic missiles and STRENGTH, they have put all hope into a terribly flawed personality, HILLARY, and we can go on and on... :clap:

Absolutely. On Cops and Race.

Postby Crux » 2015 Oct 21 09:57

http://nypost.com/2015/10/20/nypd-cop-s ... st-harlem/

Here is a simple article about a police involved shooting. IT IS NOT BIASED.
Cops responded to a gang altercation. A chase ensued of an armed gangster.

During an exchange of gunfire, a cop was killed. Black thug killed a black cop.
I point you to the photo. Cops of all races serve and protect us, TOGETHER.

:police:

It is the word together I like. It is what we should strive to remain. United with a clear view of reality.
Let's not succumb to the desire to DIVIDE. Let's support the cops and the human potential in everyone.

One can support cops.

What makes one throw up in their mouth is the attitude of infallibility one sees from way too many big city police unions and small town Boss Hoggs.

If a killing is "justified" by claiming fear for one's life, might any black person be "justified" in shooting any cop that approaches them?

Fear is understandable in the face of a real threat. How one manages their fear is the difference between actual self defense and trigger happy murderers with a badge.

If a police union can't recognize the difference, well F?%K them!

Culture Matters, Jill Stein, not able, Media, Tapper

Postby Crux » 2016 Aug 24 08:46

The media is SOOOO biased. It is no wonder leftists think the way they do. They buy into the crap.

Take GUNS. OOOOOO!!! Scary right? "We need common sense gun reform!" chant the drones...

Unless you live in Chi-town, you dont't really understand the level of violence and dysfunction.
If you did, and you were BLACK, you would most likely be among the majority who DO NOT
think that BLM speaks for you. Why? Because you are a first hand witness to the brokenness of
your own community. Democrats have it so easy. Koombayah mixed with a little utopian intent...

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government ... -children/

It is clear that CULTURE MATTERS. Many many PEOPLE get that.
Blacks, conservatives, Democrats, and true liberals can understand.

WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE???

...and so do her supporters. By PBS AND FACEBOOK!

http://www.breitbart.com/2016-president ... interview/

If it weren't for Breitbart, would you know about it???

http://www.infowars.com/gross-internet- ... it-in-cup/

BOTH, are biased and in cahoots with the so called Clinton Campaign/Global Initiative.
It is a partisan CABAL. The voter is getting duped and screwed. This isn't even in dispute.

This is a full gutting of America and Americans.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism ... gs-remark/

SO we know Hillary referenced the "BOMBINGS", before criticizing Trump for saying it was a "BOMB" that went off in NYC.

Jake Tapper edits out Hillary's opening reference to the "bombings". This is so NAKED AND SHALLOW.
