Why bother? Seriously.

Is CNN Protecting Adam Schiff?
Journalists continue to air his fact-free allegations without requiring evidence.

Why yes, yes they are and then they cry when called fake.

How on the one hand, can you bitch about Washington political corruption, and then post this celebrating it?

Companies needing regulatory approval / relief are providing "tax bill" bonuses as an explicit quid pro quo with Trump

And you're thinking this is "newsworthy" to post <- get it? "news"? "media"?

Oh Hai, here's the National Gazette two years into George Washington's first term, Editor Philip Freneau:


It's basically Fox News because that's how long Republicans (but all politicians) have been lamenting the media:
During Washington's first administration, Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson and congressman James Madison, opposed Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton’s economic policies supporting a permanently funded debt, national bank, and manufacturing. Jefferson and Madison were also upset with John Fenno's Gazette of the United States, which promoted Hamilton's program. Jefferson referred to Fenno’s publication as "a paper of pure Toryism, disseminating the doctrine of monarchy, aristocracy, and the exclusion of the influence of the people." Within a few days of Washington’s approval of the National Bank on February 25, 1791, Madison and Jefferson began work with Freneau on their own paper, the pro-Republican National Gazette. Years later, Jefferson accredited Freneau and the National Gazette with saving “our constitution which was galloping fast into monarchy."
My point is, the key word in "news" is "new" and your post is basically 217 years old.

Relief from bad law, i.e. the previous tax law was bad law. It's hamstrung our competitiveness. Whine though you may, Mr. Trump hit a home run on this.

How much money is being repatriated?

Woah, 381+ posts about CNN leaning left. Did it take that many to come to a conclusion that was already obvious?

I wonder where the Fox News Fake News thread is? It should be equally as big, I'm surprised I can't find it.

382. Dammit 383 including this one.

Not just left leaning journalist...irresponsible journalists.

The number of stories they have to walk back is not from accidental and error prone incompetence...it's from malicious and salacious reporting of someone they don't like. Just as they nailed it completely wrong on the election coverage, they are following up with getting it wrong again. Talk about a broken organization.

You're right: A "Trump home run" is not totally collapsing when you're the most unpopular president in history.

Wapo makes an excellent point here. Most of the incorrect stories were publicly retracted. Most of Trumps lies have yet to be retracted.

On Sunday there will be football games, and the teams on the field will be opponents.

Should we yell "FAKE TEAM! FAKE TEAM!" because they run opposing plays?

(1.) Media is not an encyclopedia

(2.) An informed citizen selects multiple sources of news, opinion, and information/data; "news" is your synthesis of all of them.

(3.) The entire foundation of US media is to be an opponent of, and therefore a check on, the government.
