    I don't remember reading the Washington Post (I may have seen some articles of theirs online, I can't recall) so I doubt I have ever specifically called IT Fake news; maybe it is, I don't know.



    Quote:
    What is fake news, then? Trump specifically labeled NYT, Washington Post, and especially CNN as fake news. And we know why he does it, because investigative journalism is Trump's kryptonite. He needs to muddy the waters of what is actually the true. It's an attack on the Fourth Estate.


I know that CNN HAS broadcast Fake News. I don't know if that infers everything they do is Fake News. I can't speak to the others you mention.

CNN is certainly VERY biased against Trump. There is a reason they nicknamed it the Clinton News Network.


    Quote:
    The next step is State Media, a role which Fox News arguably fills


Fox is pro-Republican, ABC, CNN, MSNBC are all pro-Democrat.

Virtually all the chat shows are Pro-Dem as well.

Hollywood is virtually all pro-Dem.

    (you do know that Hannity has a direct line to Trump).


Just like I am sure many journo's had direct lines to Hillary.


    Quote:
    I wouldn't say there is ANY news source I 100% trust. I prefer to take each statement individually.



    Quote:
    Whatever that means.


It means dealing with stories on an individual basis, rather than saying all news from one station is 100% Fake or 100% Trustworthy.

...you know, the way I would treat an individual, rather than label 100% of one group "Ugly Human Beings".

    That Islamic Fundamentalists ARE Anti-American.



    Quote:
    What about Jewish Fundamentalists? Or Christian Fundamentalists? It all comes from the same book in the end.


...and how many people are they murdering worldwide?


    Quote:
    Islam is an Abrahamic religion (Jesus is mentioned more in the Quran than Muhammad). While America is largely Christian, it is not a Christian nation. It is not founded on Christian principles. The government is a secular one -- and entitles everyone freedom of religion, and freedom FROM religion.


Most of the values of the west are born from Christianity. Islam is the LEAST tolerant religion and passages within call for the Subjugation (or elimination) of all other religions.


    Quote:
    So is Iraq a safer place since Saddam was ousted or not?



    Quote:
    No, it's not. I'm not sure what point that proves, other than that outside extremists can move in after a destabilization in government is achieved.


The point is that the West can't always FORCE its values on other cultures and expect everything to be all rainbows and sunshine. Likewise the West doesn't want the values of other cultures (ie. Sharia Law) imposed upon it, which is something that increasingly happens when the Islamic population with another country grows within a western nation.


    Quote:
    You suggested that the Russians are better off with Putin than without Putin.


Going by the examples of Saddam and Col. Gaddafi they likely ARE better off with Putin.


    Quote:
    Well how many cops were killed by BLM supporting Snipers over the past few years...



    Quote:
    The Snipers were not affiliated with BLM. If anyone on the fringes can derail otherwise peaceful protests, then they might as well not even exist. A movement should be judged by its motives, not those on the fringe.


The two things were connected, just like hundreds chanting "Pigs in a Blanket, Fry Em Like Bacon" is ALSO connected. Yes these are Fringe elements, but the whole thing was stirred up by the movement outraged over a handful of (mainly) accidental deaths* and leading to mass riots and millions of dollars in property damage.

*But still not outraged over thousands of deaths from gang violence.


    Quote:
    What craziness are you talking about. The black community in the US commits crimes on a far higher rate than any other. THAT'S why they are disproportionately targeted by police; you are putting the cart before the horse.



    Quote:
    Pulling over black people because they are black is illegal, yet its still practiced.


If it saves lives I don't see why it should be a problem.

Primary Problem: The Black Community commits crimes on a 6:1 basis compared to Whites.
Secondary Problem: Police targeting the Black Community (where most of the crime happens) more often hurts some people's feelings.


    Quote:
    Stop and frisk was deemed unconstitutional, and produced no benefit. Yet you support targeting black people because they are black. You support targeting innocent people for the crimes of others. This is called racial profiling.


Stop and Frisk led to a large number of arrests (OF CRIMINALS) and also confiscation of guns and knives. It also lowered the crime rate when it was introduced in New York.


    Quote:
    I used the evidence of EVERY example of characters lifting Mjolnir via worthiness.



    Quote:
    While still refusing to admit a definition for worthiness has never been proffered.


All the evidence pointed to a single definition. Aaron ignored that to push his politics. Alonso paid the price.
