    Welcome to the forum.
    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    I think that way when Jim Acosta is in the press meeting with Trump as well as when Jonathan Karl is there. Ambush reporters is all both are.
    The criticism of Trump to say it mildly is not relevant. The man performs his office magnificently. Take a racer at the 500 Indy race. The driver may have womanized. May have boozed and gambled. May have never voted. But man can that driver race.
    Trump is like the winner of the Indy 500.

    Please, how does that differ from HuffPo?

    We learn here that Jim Jordan is working to get Inspector Horowitz to step forward to be examined and that the Democrats block this man.

    So what is the complaint?

    OANN is openly right wing biased. They slant everything they report. Am I only allowed to look at this single, three minute video that you picked out? If this one video is reasonable, their entire history of bias is forgiven? I don't understand what you're asking for.
    So nobody forgets, you're welcome!

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    One of the biggest flags for shoddy journalism, barely worth the name, is when only one side is allowed to speak on a two sided issue. In this video, Republicans are invited to speculate as to the motives of Democrats. But those Democrats are not invited to tell their side of the story. That seems a little fishy, doesn't it? It also violates basic journalistic standards.

    They don't tell any explicit lies that I can see. But they do omit things and present them in a way that presents a false narrative. They talk about the Horowitz report and how he was investigating the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign's possible ties to the Russian attempts to interfere in our election. They don't mention that the Horowitz report exonerated Obama of the allegations that he wire tapped Trump tower or interfered with the independence of the Justice Department to order an investigation of Trump.

    They allow a Republican to claim unchallenged that the whole problem with the FISA warrants was rooted in the "Obama Justice Department," even though Horowitz concluded that he did not interfere with its independence. The truth of the matter is that FISA started off shady in 1978 and got way worse with the PATRIOT ACT in 2001, and all that Obama did was not fix it, despite pressure from the left to do so. He also did not direct the FBI to use FISA warrants to further his interests by digging up dirt on his enemies. The Horowitz report makes that clear.

    OAN is trying to create the impression that Obama eroded the independence of the Justice Department. But in fact Trump is the one who has been doing that, firing one person after another for being insufficiently loyal to him and throwing his weight around in unprecedented ways. He asked a foreign leader for the favor of working with his attorney general and his private attorney to investigate his political opponent. OAN is giving Trump cover by creating the impression that this sort of thing is nothing new. But it's a false narrative driven by omission of the fact that the subject of the piece (the Horowitz report) explicitly exonerates Obama of such allegations.

    Why do I care if it is or isn't? Does it change anything I've said? Classic Trump supporter, don't address the topic, attempt a distraction with an attack on something else entirely.
