That is true but if he pushes this that may change in a hurry!

I don't believe it would ever change. The media has had ample reason to reevaluate their deep love for Obama. They have ignored any Obama transgression and love him as much as ever.

The media, is our number one, and most lethal enemy.

And not until they're dealt with.....with that FACT in mind, nothing is going to change.

They need to fear 'US" more than they fear Barack Obama.

Which raises a question I have long wondered about which is who is propping up most of the MSM? Their readership/viewership is totally in the tank and with that goes the advertising sales so some one, or some thing,  is propping them up. Who? Or What?

We geezers tend to think alike, Bigun!   :beer:

Soros comes to mind.

But when you control the IRS and the CIA and FBI and the Justice Department, at the speed the scales of justice turn....you can do just about anything you damned well please.

Nobody's detailed where that monthly stipend of $83 BILLION into the stock market actually goes.

That's true but the problem predates the current administration. 

For years (since the failure and break up of the old Soviet Union) we have been reading and hearing about the fall of Communism as if those two things are synonymous. I have never accepted that they are. I believe Communism is alive and thriving as never before and THAT explains who is propping them up!

Soros has bought into the papers of all the major university journalism departments, and he has bought into many newsrooms as well.... remember he has so many sub, sub, sub companies much of what he has done is buried deep.

Michael Savage just reported that he did a major short sale of stocks two weeks prior to the Ukraine blowing up.

One of the questions...."Have you ever wanted to pursue a story and was told by your management/editor that you couldn't?"

Paraphrased.....but nonetheless.

It's a vehicle to test the loyalty and pedigree of their own personnel.

If I was a camera person and had firsthand knowledge that the newsreader was being rebuffed, I'd..........(let's see, I have a mortgage, child-care, car payments, child support, taxes).....shut the hell up!

Imagine if GW Bush had done this..
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

Good point.  and on a side note I think filming in #3 has almost or has wrapped... can't wait for the last episode

I've read the book a couple of times and wouldn't want anything to do with trying to produce the movie! Ayn is the most verbose writer I have ever encountered! Takes a 100 words to say what could have been said in 10!
