    Crusade is an excellent way to define what I witnessed last night.

    It is sad really, they spent the entire three hours tearing the White House and President Trump apart while rarely acknowledging any information that doesn't fit their agenda.

    I wouldn't even call it News, at least not last night.

    It is interesting to me how perspective and what you want to hear shape viewpoints. I watch all three of the media talk channels FOX, CNN, MSNBC (not news, media talk and slanted ... all three of them). It is always eye opening to see how stories are talked about it as each channel tries to keep their viewers happy. If you want to find the truth, you need to watch all three and keep an open mind. Then you need to research the version you think might be true and stay away from the even more slanted websites that are out there. Many of those websites are worse than any of the media talk channels. Talk about fake and slanted news - those websites are as bad as it gets.

    I think that is an excellent strategy @Voice of Reason

    Thanks. I will flip channels on commercials to hear how each channel is covering the same story, especially on breaking stories. Same thing in the morning when getting ready to head out for the day. I will flip channel to channel to hear each one's thoughts on what is happening that day.

    Yes, that is the way it goes. I find MSNBC the most difficult to watch overall, but I do like Morning Joe. I think the morning shows on both Fox and CNN are lacking.

    I don't think you realize what is being cut. You are thinking entitlements which will eventually go down the drain, but we are talking ways to improve poor areas: teacher programs, water programs, job programs, etc...

    I agree jess. Fox had a crusade against obama. Maybe it has something to do with a POTUS trying to delegitimize them.
