  • 2020 "deplorable" moment

    When all is said and done, I believe CNN will regret this moment. Remember when Hillary referred to Trump supporters as "a basket of deplorables"? I believe CNN has just refreshed that division with the below clip.

    The divide between the cities and rural areas... the coasts and flyover country continue to widen. Dare I say... dangerously so.
    I truly believe we are set upon a path to a dangerous place... and folks like this (and those like them on the right who seek to mock and insult first) are gleefully pushing the accelerator.

      I can recall when watching news on TV, CNN was the definitive source for reliable reporting; especially overseas issues. Today, like Fox News and MSNBC, they are political hacks. Seems as if you have a "news reporting" organ, you have to pick a side. Papers are just as bad, if not worse. The local paper, the San Antonio Express News hates ALL conservative (read Republican) view points. There was a time when the Fourth Estate was considered vital to a healthy republic but today it has become the propaganda wing of one of the two parties. Not much credibility out there...

        It's all news infotainment now to play to ones bias. Unbiased news and true journalism disappeared 20 years ago but is getting more polarized daily. Used to take paper because it had more in depth coverage of news stories and more local news. Now pick up pretty much any local news paper in the country and you can barely tell the difference from one to the other. Generic short versions of broadcast news tilted to their particular bias. That's one expense I deleted when I retired. Had time to sit and enjoy reading paper and no real content to read. Couple pages of stale news and 18 pages of adds.

        I do miss it for campfire starter. So now I cheat and bring propane torch to start fires with.

          I took the Express News for years; used to read it for news then later used it for packing material and read only the funnies and did the puzzles. Cheaper just to buy packing material. Paper kept shrinking with both content and size.

            CNN has really low standards. Say what you want but if Rush or FNC had done or said what Lemon said/did in either this episode or the last one....he would have been gone. As for newspapers, most of our paper consists of articles they have imported from AP (six in today's paper), every one bad mouths Trump, his politics or anything for which he stands.
