    What exactly do you think was worthwhile of posting this in the bias media thread? Itís a quote from a politician calling the media biased. You can find that every day. Itís well established that Republicans think this. The short quote adds absolutely nothing to that discussion.

    The rest of it is worth discussing however. Not my fault you posted it in the wrong thread.

    Barr did say he wasnít bullied. But letís look at this from a common sense perspective. Have you ever had a boss? I have and I have been a boss so Iíve seen how this works. Iíll use an example;

    Say youíre in construction and your boss gives you a job and says you need to be done in two days. Both of you know that there is no way to do this job in two days if you follow health and safety laws and regulations. He knows what heís asking, you know what he is asking but itís not explicitly said. You have the right to refuse, and you canít be fired for that but you can be for damn near anything else. So your options are either refuse and potentially get fired for something Ďunrelatedí or do the job in two days and hope you donít get nailed for a fine. Once again you werenít explicitly asked to do that but really, you were. Do you really think Barr doesnít know what Trump is asking for or what the consequences are if he didnít do it?

    I posted the media biased part, in the media biased thread. some people still think saying the media is heavily biased left is just fake news despite evidence that contradicts that.

    I've also brought up Barr in the Trump thread.

    this is what you get from MSNBC.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...tic-challenger

    'Dystopian, over-the-top, road-to-tyranny stuff': Maddow warns Trump will investigate his Democratic challenger
    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow told her viewers that President Trump might use the Department of Justice to investigate his political rivals in an attempt at reelection.

    After encouraging her audience to look into the candidates on the issues, the MSNBC host warned her audience that the president might engage in "dystopian, over-the-top, road-to-tyranny" tactics to win the presidency.

    "At this point in the Trump presidency, at this point in the news, what do you really think the odds are that President Trump and Attorney General William Barr won't open up some kind of federal criminal investigation into whichever Democrat Trump ends up running against in the general election," she asked her audience.

    "Or if they can't wait that long, if they're too impatient, what do you think the odds are that the president and the attorney general will do something in the primary? Open up some kind of federal criminal investigation or find some other way to use the federal law enforcement apparatus against whichever Democrat Trump least wants to run against in the general."

    Maddow said that America "supposedly learned our lesson" following the Watergate scandal which surrounded the Nixon presidency in the early 1970s. However, she asserted that it's a plausible theory for Trump to "target his political opponents" and "undermine his opponent" in the 2020 election.
    this is brainwashing. some people watching Maddox actually believe this. they have aligned Barr with Trump as if they are working together for Trump's agenda, despite Barr not being the one who literally said "I'm Obama's wing-man" that came from Obama's AG Eric Holder.

    if you want to butwhatabout Sean Hannity then go ahead, I don't watch/support Hannity.

    former person with ABC caught on camera being honest about how ABC covers Trump as President.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/abc-ne...s-video-report

    ABC News suspends David Wright for remarks made in Project Veritas video
    ABC News has suspended veteran Washington correspondent David Wright for remarks he made that were captured on video by Project Veritas.

    Wright was disciplined after higher-ups at ABC News reviewed footage in which Wright describes himself as a "socialist" and appears to criticize the network for the way in which it chooses to present the news.

    ďI feel terrible about it. I feel that the truth suffers, the voters are poorly informed, and people also have the opportunity to tune into whatever they want to hear,Ē Wright said in the video, which also features an ABC News producer.

    ďAnd so, itís like thereís no upside, or our bosses donít see an upside in doing the job weíre supposed to do, which is to speak truth to power and hold people accountable.
    Ē

    The veteran reporter expounded at length on his political views. "I would consider myself a socialist, like I think there should be national health insurance," he said. "Iím totally fine with reining in corporations, I think theyíre too many billionaires, and I think thereís a wealth gap Ė thatís a problem.Ē

    In the hidden video that Project Veritas said was filmed in New Hampshire during its primary's coverage, Wright, 56, also called President Trump "a d---" while simultaneously complaining that Trump is sometimes not given "credit for what things he does do."

    I've known and said for awhile now that the Liberal media doesn't give Trump the credit he deserves for accomplishments. it's why people are manipulated/brainwashed into believing that Trump has had success as President.

    was what David Wright said edited? maybe someone else with the same voice said those words?

    from the article..
    But whatís important here is that this is a scam conservatives have been running for decades. Itís often referred to as ďworking the refsĒ ó you accuse the media of ďbias,Ē and even if you have no substance to back up your claim, if you do it often and loudly enough, theyíll bend over backward to disprove you, usually by being extraordinarily tough on Democrats (see ďBut her emailsĒ).
    except there often is evidence, this included using his words caught on tape.

    Watch the tape you dope? You have a heavily edited interview where a guy is critical of the media as a whole and where we have no idea what questions hes responding too. Present that as radical underground journalism by secretly recording him, when it's really a means to legitimize the wholly unethical representation of the discussion. Again, you post a perfect example of bias in media meant to bolster your case that bias exists in media, something that anyone with a lick of media literacy already understands and accounts for. You simply prove over and over that you have no understanding of that which you speak.

    O'Keefe is definitely a con man, his videos are creatively edited no doubt about that. ABC could easily have dealt with O'Keefe but they chose to discipline Williams instead because he screwed up; he admitted he's a socialist. That's why ABC removed him from political coverage, not because he appeared to criticize the network and the industry. Had he been an opinion giver this probably wouldn't have hurt him.

    however the video was edited, either he said the words or he didn't.

    imagine someone trying to defend Trump's ***** grabbing audio that it was edited as if he shouldn't be held accountable for it.
