    Thumbs up

    I'm really excited about Biden/Harris, guys, I mean REALLY excited.
    And things can only get even so much brighter for us all in the not so distant future too.

    HARRIS/ABRAMS '24!

    Agreed. I'm not doubting that she said some shit in her life that she'll have to walk back. But that was a Breitbart article without entire quotes from her. It's going to have to gain a lot more traction than that to have an impact on voters. I hope they have more on her than that.
    This is more about defeating Trump anyway, and less about support for Biden/Harris.

    Here we go with the "Breitbart boogeyman thingy"

    Btw, the link to the source material was in the article.

    When this happened, it was a big story in the media. The anti Catholic attacks by the Dems in the senate made headline news.

    Oh wait, that didn't happen?

    Pretty sickening how CNN is fawning all over Harris. Her speech was incredible, passionate, blah. blah, blah. Not a speck of critisism.

    Thank god for FNC.

    I hope they ream her a new ass like the MSM has to Trump for 4 years. Turnabout is fair play MF's.

    Oh, as if Breitbart doesn't have an angle to their stories. Come on. No BB boogeyman.

    The average person doesn't remember the anti-Catholic attacks made by Harris during a Senate trial from 2 years ago. Sorry, but it's true. Not everyone spends their time scouring the internet for political dirt.

    And I was agreeing with CC about his post. Yet you always turn things around. My point is that this would have to gain a lot more traction for it to have an impact.

    And that is why all those networks are toxic and do not offer anything good for the country. They just help strengthen the divide. Nothing more.

    As if this started with Trump.

    I merely highlighted the "oh my god it's Breitbart" portion of your post. And like I always say, point out the issue with the information instead of falling back on the same bs. Think it's wrong ? Prove it.

    Again, you can start with the link provided to the source material.

    Fake news. I didn't say "oh my god it's Breitbart."

    I'm simply stating that they, like the MSM, do have a partisan tilt to their stories, do they not? I didn't say anything disparaging about BB. It wasn't even the main point of my post, but of course...let's focus on it.

    Because that's the usual go-to for people who don't like a story. You insinuated that it should be taken with a grain of salt because it's Breitbart. Totally ignoring that the links to the source material was provided. And sorry if you don't remember the stink that was raised about anti Catholic bias in the senate hearings. It made news and was a thing.

    I was simply adding that because it was a right-wing article it could've easily had some bias to it. I'm not saying it was, but would it be so unfathomable for BB to do a hit piece? Yet every thing from the MSM is a hit piece.

    There are a lot of people who do not remember that...I vaguely do. Most people don't follow this shit as closely as you do. Let's just see if it gains more traction. Ultimately, I agree with CC and fudd that she will simply walk it back. But, as I said, she's going to have to walk back several things going forward. Can we just agree on that and call it a day?

    You don't have to wonder if it is or not because it speaks for itself and if one doesn't remember the links are provided.

    The level of hero worship CNN is throwing at Kamala Harris is mind boggling.

    You would think she was Joan of Arc, Emelia Earhart and Harriet Tubman all rolled into one.

    I’m actually friends with a relative of Emelia Earhart. Harris is no Emelia Earhart.

    Look, I read a lot of Reason Magazine and their other sites, like their blog and YouTube channel. Are they biased? Hell yes. Biased towards pro-liberty ideas, classical liberalism, etc. They run a piece every election telling you exactly who each writer is voting for for President. Some don't vote, some vote for the LP candidate, and many switch between Republicans and Democrats depending upon who they think is the lesser of two evils.

    They put links in their stories, too. But of course it is biased. Their tag line is "Free minds, free markets." But they also rarely have a dog in the race, either. Knowing the bias, but also knowing they aren't putting an effort forward to get a Republican or Democrat elected helps me discern what I am reading there, as well as anyone else who doesn't lean that direction. And of course, this would likely change if a candidate with their values had any chance whatsoever.

    Here a few of the items at the top of their page: Phony Kamala, Dem City Crime Wave, Cheat by Mail. I mean, come on.

    And I have checked the links. When it comes to immigration, Breitbart uses the Center for Immigration Studies, and links to them in their articles. If you check out their website, you can find their purpose. "The Center is animated by a unique pro-immigrant, low-immigration vision which seeks fewer immigrants..." though I suppose it's nice they go on to say they want to be nice to the people we do let out (how big of them!). (https://cis.org/Center-For-Immigrati...ies-Background)

    Here's the thing--if you're going to be unbiased about immigration, are you going to quote solely from studies done by an organization whose stated purpose is to convince people we should have fewer immigrants? Of course not. So, yes, they do provide the links, but if they are just linking to biased sources, what does that matter, and what does it show?

    So, fine, say " the media" is biased, and to some degree it all is, but Breitbart definitely has a particular point of view, just like the Reason Foundation, links or not.
