What is commonly called mainstream media. Fox news or Slate are not really mainstream. «even though they may have more followers than some mainstream media outlets»
Every list of mainstream media has Fox News; can you point to lists that do not have Fox News?

The much-hyped AG Graham criminal investigation into the reasons for starting the investigation into Trump and Russian links seems to be turning into a damp squib.

So far there has been only one criminal charge against a low-level FBI lawyer and this allegation was already identified by the Inspector General before AG Graham started his investigation.

So far there is no indication that other criminal charges are close to fruition.
There is also DOJ’s long-established election-year policy of “not doing anything that could influence an election" which would usually inhibit new criminal prosecutions this close to the presidential election.
Of course, AG Barr is Trump's creature so might ignore this policy.
Unexpected development
Quote:
A top aide to U.S. Attorney John Durham has reportedly resigned from the Justice Department’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation amid worries over political pressure from Attorney General William Barr.

Federal prosecutor Nora Dannehy, who has worked with Durham for decades, resigned Thursday evening, sources told the Hartford Courant in a story published Friday. Her resignation email did not include mention of political pressure.

More details in the local newspaper.

Is that the hill you want to die on?
I'm well aware of the allegation (note, singular) and also that it went absolutely nowhere. No corroboration, no credibility. Absolutely extraordinary that the alleged victim suddenly remembered the horrors of her contact with Biden only after it was apparent that he would be the Democrat nominee standing against multiply alleged and many times more credible sexual assaulter and adulterer Trump.

But it's OK, I know you're only trolling. I'll let it slide as it's so obvious to anybody here with half a brain.

Honestly, I think though in the end what bothers me the most is the same thing as four years ago. One candidate is being ripped apart for every thing that he says by the media and the other is being treated with kid gloves and sort of dragged to the finish line. It’s just incomprehensible to me that in a modern society, we are treated by the media like the kid in the “Emperor’s new Clothes” story or gaslighted in other words.
The crazy thing is that Biden was key for the introduction of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act in 1993/1994 under Clinton, he's responsible for the 1st version and the one Clinton signed into law.

That act
- eliminated the chance for higher education for inmates by effectively banning the Pell grants
- removed incentives for inmates to "behave well"
- introduced the three-strikes provision
- aimed to increase the effective time served by 70%
- created 60 new death penalty offenses under 41 federal capital statutes
- started the militarisation of the police
- introduced 50 new federal offenses

Nowadays Biden pretends wanting to undo most of that and is lauded by every Democrat talking head and their dog for it. But nobody even mentions his dirty role in the past.

There's no bigger turncoat and liar than Biden.

How did it come to this? I feel sorry for the US and their people.
Lesser of 2 evils ...definitely Biden

Completely true. I am far younger and lose my train of thought occasionally.

Considering he is speaking on levels of pressure which most people can't even imagine, he does a great job. The whole dementia thing is pushed as a Republican agenda whike conveniently ignoring the constant stream of horrific incidents involving their own president.




I mean seriously, that is only scratching the surface and anyone who says Biden even begins to compare to this level of cognitive abnormality is a straight up liar.

Fox News has an obvious political leaning and it has been this way for 20+ years. If you post an article from fox news to prove your point, most people will roll their eyes. The same people will be act shocked if you question an article from the NYT or Washington Post.

If you consider mainstream media by viewers and influence then of course fox news and even rush limbaugh are on the list.

Except for her mom corroborating it on Larry King 25+ years ago....but it doesn‘t matter. I don‘t care if he did or didn‘t. I mention this because you used the low #believeallwomen standard. Me personally, I still prefer the courts to decide such matters. Both guys are equally innocent before the law:msntongue

Or, None of the above.

There are lots of polls out there much more meaningful than a poll of English Speaking residents of Switzerland. Many who don’t actually have a vote.

Re: Poll: Trump or Biden ?

Of course everybody is welcome to write their thoughts, but there is a very long thread about this (or several threads).
I just want to know who do we think will win, not who do we want, or who should win.

Re: Poll: Trump or Biden ?

It’s a simple question, who DO YOU THINK will win.
Not who are you voting for
Not who deserves or should win.

I’ve read the polls form BBC, FOX, CNN etc. I’m just curious to see what the people from this group think, jeez
