So basically you're proposing that I was prejudiced against him. Yeah, that sounds about right. I was hoping that he would surround himself with people who were knowledgeable (or qualified) about the posts they were assuming or at the very least, they were not in favor of tearing the department down. Or that he would become more presidential (yeah, whatever that means). But that didn't happen. If he didn't promote the term "fake news", that would have gained some positive points for me. If he didn't say and do things that were racist, that would have been good. If he didn't spout off on Twitter for every little thing on his mind, that would have (slightly) raised my opinion of him.dr_st wrote: ↑Fri Nov 27, 2020 3:43 pmI will offer a different explanation. Because you were against him from day one, you interpreted everything he did in the most negative way possible, and viewed all his actions, words, decisions, policies, through the prism of those who oppose him and not those who support him.
I would say that you've probably met some people in your life where you get a very strong impression, good or bad, within a few minutes. With Trump there's been years of him in the news and the documentation that goes along with it. I'm sure by now people have made up their minds about DJT one way or the other.
Well, it would tell me and the others who read this who you trust for information and facts. I'm talking about news, as reported by people who might have gone to school and obtained journalism degrees and not opinion hosts who have recently been sued to the tune of a seven-figure settlement.dr_st wrote: ↑Fri Nov 27, 2020 3:43 pmI will argue that this is simply not true, in either direction. And no, opinion pieces from leftist media will not convince me. I could search opinion pieces from rightist media to counter them, but since those won't convince you, is there really a point?

I have to give credit to Newsmax. I guess that they're trying to stick it to Fox. This goes to show you that sometimes right-wing news outlets try to suppress the news. What's the reason for that? Would it upset their viewers/readers to know this little bit of news?
