    Not at all; but hey, you cling to that laughable little bit of stupidity if it helps you sleep at night.

    The responses from the left on this thread are illustrative of their own realization at how badly this clown show is going for Schiff.

    Now, they will threaten the Republic with outright revolt if Trump wins re-election. I wish them good luck.

    No, that is the Fascist doctrine. And no, Americans are not ready to hand over their liberties to a Fascistic left leaning party like the Democratic Party of the Jackass.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    The fairness doctrine of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, was a policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was—in the FCC's view—honest, equitable, and balanced. The FCC eliminated the policy in 1987 and removed the rule that implemented the policy from the Federal Register in August 2011.[1]
    The fairness doctrine had two basic elements: It required broadcasters to devote some of their airtime to discussing controversial matters of public interest, and to air contrasting views regarding those matters. Stations were given wide latitude as to how to provide contrasting views: It could be done through news segments, public affairs shows, or editorials. The doctrine did not require equal time for opposing views but required that contrasting viewpoints be presented. The demise of this FCC rule has been considered by some to be a contributing factor for the rising level of party polarization in the United States.[2][3]
    The main agenda for the doctrine was to ensure that viewers were exposed to a diversity of viewpoints. In 1969 the United States Supreme Court, in Red Lion Broadcasting Co. v. FCC, upheld the FCC's general right to enforce the fairness doctrine where channels were limited. However, the Court did not rule that the FCC was obliged to do so.[4] The courts reasoned that the scarcity of the broadcast spectrum, which limited the opportunity for access to the airwaves, created a need for the doctrine.
    The fairness doctrine is not the same as the equal-time rule. The fairness doctrine deals with discussion of controversial issues, while the equal-time rule deals only with political candidates.

    No one wants to admit that they were grifted; doing so opens you up to attacks on your judgment and character. Most of the people who were grifted definitely have a Dunning-Kruger thing going on, and have so intrinsically linked their judgment and instincts to their character. So if it turns out their judgment and instincts were utter shit, that means their characters are utter shit. So their very ego-centric fragility is at risk if their judgment is exposed as poor. And if that's the case, their status diminishes and they cease being the special little angels their parents raised them to believe they are.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_News



    Fox News (officially Fox News Channel and abbreviated FNC) is an American conservative[1][2] pay television news channel. It is owned by the Fox News Group, which itself was owned by News Corporation from 1996–2013, 21st Century Fox from 2013–2019, and Fox Corporation since 2019. The channel broadcasts primarily from studios at 1211 Avenue of the Americas in New York City. Fox News is provided in 86 countries or overseas territories worldwide,[3] with international broadcasts featuring Fox Extra segments during ad breaks.
    The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch to appeal to a conservative audience, hiring former Republican Party media consultant and CNBC executive Roger Ailes as its founding CEO.[4][5] It launched on October 7, 1996, to 17 million cable subscribers.[6] Fox News grew during the late 1990s and 2000s to become the dominant subscription news network in the U.S.[7] As of February 2015, approximately 94,700,000 US households (81.4% of television subscribers) receive Fox News.[8] Murdoch is the current executive chairman and Suzanne Scott is the CEO.[9][10]
    Fox News has been described as practicing biased reporting in favor of the Republican Party, the George W. Bush and Donald Trump administrations, and conservative causes while slandering the Democratic Party and spreading harmful propaganda intended to negatively affect its members' electoral performances.[11][12][13][14] Critics have cited the channel as detrimental to the integrity of news overall.[15][16] Fox News employees have said that news reporting operates independently of its opinion and commentary programming, and have denied bias in news reporting, while former employees have said that Fox ordered them to "slant the news in favor of conservatives".[17] During Trump's presidency, observers have noted a pronounced tendency of Fox News to serve as a "mouthpiece" for the administration, providing "propaganda" and a "feedback loop" for Trump, with one presidential scholar stating, "it’s the closest we’ve come to having state TV."[18][19][20][21][22]

    He should have been taken down with "Russia are you listening?" And why was cover-up expert Bill Barr allowed to keep Congress from seeing the unredacted Mueller report? And there is more than enough Emolument Clause reasons to throw the f*ucker out.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Ailes


    olitical consulting[edit]


    Ailes with President Richard Nixon in 1969


    Ailes in 1984


    Ailes with President Ronald Reagan in 1986


    Ailes with President George H. W. Bush in 1990
    In 1984, Ailes worked on the campaign to reelect Ronald Reagan. In 1987 and 1988, Ailes was credited (along with Lee Atwater) with guiding George H. W. Bush to victory in the Republican primaries and the victory over Michael Dukakis.[9]
    Ailes was credited with the "Orchestra Pit Theory" regarding sensationalist political coverage in the news media, which originated with his quip:
    If you have two guys on a stage and one guy says, "I have a solution to the Middle East problem," and the other guy falls in the orchestra pit, who do you think is going to be on the evening news?[10]
    Ailes' last campaign was the unsuccessful effort of Richard Thornburgh for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania in November 1991.[11] He announced his withdrawal from political consulting in 1991.[11]
    Days after the 9/11 attacks, Ailes advised President George W. Bush that the American public would be patient as long as they were convinced that Bush was using the harshest measures possible.[12] The correspondence was revealed in Bob Woodward's book Bush at War.[13] Criticized for giving political advice, Ailes lashed out against Woodward, saying "Woodward got it all screwed up, as usual", and "The reason he's not as rich as Tom Clancy is that while he and Clancy both make stuff up, Clancy does his research first".[12][14][15] Ailes refused to release a copy of the memo he sent to Bush.[12]
