Reply Subj: I'm Getting Tired Of All Of This Republican Hate And Of People Blaming Everything On Them. And Of Bias Towards Trump

Not everything is the fault of Republicans, and I think that it's sad that everyone puts the blame for most of our ills on them. I'm a Libertarian (Certainly NOT a Republican.), but honestly, I think that both parties have taken too much of a stranglehold. I think that we need a third option, and that we can (Or rather, we NEED to go beyond the two-party system.) get some more input and new approaches. It's probably never going to happen (I am an optimist in general, but I certainly don't see it happening anytime soon.). I don't know, everytime I turn on either CNN, the mainstream news or the radio, it seems that people are bashing Republicans. And the NRA is getting all the blame for these sadly more pervasive and common mass killings and shootings.
And I'm certainly no fan of Trump (And I WOULD like to see him impeached.), but I am certainly sensing a bias in the media towards him. CNN, ABC, NBC, DEFINITELY MSNBC, etc. There is a place for that (Talk Radio.), but wasn't there a time when the news just stuck to accurate reporting or just reporting the facts WITHOUT any kind of judgement or obvious bias? You know: Facts! Or are those just days of yore?

I agree some news sources are heavily biased. Some will focus on a minor thing and blow it out of proportion while ignoring more important stories. I try to avoid those. ON the flip side, the conservative news sites I sometimes visit are just as biased. They ignore or downplay as much as possible some of the things Republicans and Trump has done.

And truth be told Trump gives the news sites plenty of ammunition and reason to focus om him. He comes across as incredibly thin-skinned and lacking any sort tact. The Republicans add to it by either being slow to condemn him at times or failing to get anything done despite controlling both Houses of Congress and the Executive branch.
