    since this is more about the media I'll pout it here. (wouldn't want to offend ewing)

    Over the weekend, a St. Louis couple living in an upscale neighborhood was terrorized by a Black Lives Matter mob that destroyed a metal gate and invaded their private community, all so they could target the mayor with calls for her resignation. When reporting on the incident Monday night, ABC and NBC intentionally hid those facts as they insisted the mob was just made up of “peaceful protesters,” and demonized the couple for protecting their home and lives with guns.

    Kicking off the segment on NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt decried President Trump’s retweeting of the video showing the couple. “This evening, a new firestorm involving President Trump after he retweeted an inflammatory video made during a protest in St. Louis,” Holt sneered.

    Moments later, NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker claimed, without evidence, that Trump was trying to stoke “racial” “tensions” with the video:

    Tonight, as protests for racial justice persist, the President is again stoking tensions on Twitter, sharing a video today of a white couple in an upscale St. Louis neighborhood pointing firearms and shouting at peaceful protesters.


    Over on ABC’s World News Tonight, chief White House correspondent Jon Karl also insisted Trump’s retweet was a way to “rally his base with racially incendiary rhetoric.” And absent of any context, Karl reported that the video was of “a white couple in St. Louis pointing guns at black protesters walking by on a street in front of their home.”

    At no point did he inform viewers that the racially mixed mob had trespassed on private property by destroying a gate. And ignoring reports that the couple’s lives and property were being threatened by the mob, Karl scoffed at their defense:
    the media continues to use race to divide people.

    They wouldn't have anything to talk about if the president didnt retweet a video of one of his supporters driving around in a golf cart yelling white power

    For what he gets to control, Trump is already doing a pretty good job of that. We have several programs that are designed to promote American greatness around the globe and they have been pretty well defunded and demoralized during this administration.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    He gets to exert actual control over groups like Voice of America.

    News busters are a great example of bias media. Good job special.

    this is a pattern. this includes the "white" couple with their guns, where apparently them being white was a factor.

    I know I shouldn't be surprised that you can't understand the point of the article. I only bolded what was important, but you can just ignore that part.
