As for the Royals, I am now more inclined to believe Megan. Her story doesn’t surprise me and out of all the Royals you got to hand it to Harry for actually being a pretty genuine type of bloke. And because of that, I must give credence to Megan’s story not because of her, but because of Harry.

Either way, the Republican movement in Australia will have a field day.

Same as twitter, people were only logging in for Trumps tweets.

Both of these organizations loved to hate him and now that "they" have got rid of him, they are going to live to regret it.

Reminds me of a saying, be careful what you wish for.


Yes indeed Max.

Very fertile ground for Trump to open up his own network.

Fox News does need to make a amends with its viewership which would have been 90% Trump.

Murdock dropped the ball big time in his ever opportunistic ways.

I seem to recall a list about the reliability of media.

The debate seems to hinge on what is a good and accurate news source and what is not.

The reality of course is that all media are indeed taking the piss and promoting a particular side of politics abd they put their slant on things.

Some even omit stories that do not push their supported narrative.

So who is better and who is more dangerous. Let’s look at the following sample:
CNN, BBC, Guardian, MSNBC, Fox News, Sky News, NYT and Washington Post.

The most dangerous media outlets above are those who purport to be “down the line” or fair.

For instance CNN, BBC, MSNBC, NYT and WP. These are propaganda hacks. Pretend to be real journalism when in fact they are NOT. Deceptive to the core.

The other ones which clearly have an agenda and narrative which they are upfront about are less dangerous:
For instance FOX News, Sky News and Guardian.

FOX News was clearly GOP through and through. You know what you are getting when you tune in. It’s literally blatant and very transparent.

Same with Sky News Australia. It’s blatant right wing, liberal party and Trump supporting through and through. You know what you are getting when you tune in.

Sky News UK however, also owned by Murdoch is far more dangerous as they are pretenders much like CNN and BBC. In other words, liars.

Guardian is also extremely left wing. It’s literally blatant and very transparent. It’s obvious what you are getting when you read their material. In the same vain as Fox News and Sky News Australia.

And these more transparent forms of journalism fulfil an important role and I will put it all to you that they are more reliable news sources with better quality journalism because you know what angle they are pushing at all times.

The Guardian is excellent comic relief as well. I’ve spent hours on their websites reading all the meltdown comments when Trump won the 2016 election, about BREXIT and Boris Johnson’s election win. So much fun. :lol:

Fun for the whole family. :lol:

Twitter was good for a laugh too until they purged all the Republican voices like true “Democrats”. Now they are a shadow. An empty vessel with no discourse or debate. Oh well! :D

Having said that I am starting to have a lot of time for Biden as I was extremely impressed with a statement he put out in absentia. Well at least his minders would have put it out for him on his behalf as they kept Biden hidden in the back room.

The US has maintained its tough stance against Chy-na abd some will say he is even more tougher than Trump ever was.

The official statement said that the US remains United with Australia and that there is no chance of a normalisation of US and Chy-nese relations without Chy-na first normalising relations with its ally Australia and commencing negotiations with all other countries that have interests in the South China Sea.

A very commendable and forthright response there by Biden.

Credit must be served where credit is due and Biden hit the nail on the head so well done Biden. Or whoever is responsible in the Democrat party for this policy statement. Ten out of ten there and credit well deserved.

Plus as an Aussie, I’m so glad to see we can rely on some countries to stick with us through thick and thin.

Legends!

Does this make Biden racist too? :lol:

So, a reasonable person then can deduce that Trump is an idiot for believing his defense teams bogus claims.

I don’t know which is worse, that Trump and his defense team were a bunch of liars and should never ever be believed again or that they are bunch of comedians and should be rejected by their brain-dead idiots supporting the Banana Republican Party. :lol:

But first, they should all be hit with the $1.5 Billion lawsuits for their liable claims against Dominion. :D

...yes, the "Tucker" defense, since he was the first to use it.

In any case, Fox News has a problem; the commentary draws ratings, and in this enterprise they may have gone too far.

News, and "News" will be defined; and what is lying.

...sadly for this lady, if that's all the defense she has, she, is a Lawyer. Tucker Carlson, to say the least is an entertainer.
