Impartial media.

The only 'impartial' media is the one that aligns itself with your own views.

Same for everyone no matter how you try to play otherwise.
The bias begins with the question 'What is news?'

Those news outlets have cast themselves as not much more than tabloid journalism anyway. Just about everything they are reporting about Trump and the White House are merely gossips and innuendos.
When you are reporting on someone who behaviours like someone in tabloid newspaper what do you expect!

The guy is a blatant lier and not even a good one at that as he is easily found out. so as long has he continues to feed them it is his problem.

Now you can dress it up anyway you like, but the only one you are fooling is yourself.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
The White House is dismissing a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intelligence report rebuffing President Trump’s claims that citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries pose an increased terror threat, the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday.

“The president asked for an intelligence assessment,” a senior administration official told the Journal. “This is not the intelligence assessment the president asked for.”
Source

WSJ Source (needs subscription)

You could not make this stuff up?

Edit: The WSJ were allowed into yesterday's Press briefing; wonder if they will be allowed into today's!!

I assume Trump wants an intelligence assessment to support defending against any court action against his bans?
Problem he has now is anyone attacking his ban in court will insist on this DHS assessment being produced!

Edit 2 - But surely Trump tweets Fox are the good guys

Interesting, if you are really a Christian then not only do you believe in God but you are also obliged to believe in the Devil and all his works

For example, Peter 5:8 or John 3:8 or many more.

Trump declines to attend White House correspondents' dinner
The last president to miss the dinner was Ronald Reagan, who sat out because he was he recovering from an assassination attempt in 1981, although he still delivered remarks by phone.

Do you think Trump will now command some execution of witches? Remember Salem? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem_witch_trials

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Obama brilliantly predicted this in his last speech at the white house correspondants' dinner: "My last and perhaps THE last..." Just watched it again - hilarious & pure class.

If the WH Correspondents Association have any humour at all then they will invite Obama to substitute. After all the dinner is for a good cause and should be supported!

Par for the course for Fox. Pretty similar to the "expert" they interviewed who said Birmingham was a no go area for non-Muslims.
