    Fox reports fairly on President Trump just as they reported fairly on President Obama.

What was he going to do to help his business out that wasn't inside the Department of Agriculture. But here we are. One of the two is corrupt and sees the office as a way to make money and the other is Jimmy Carter.
    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!

    All Presidents use the office to make money... some just more direct than others...

    you are arguing over form rather than substance

    I can't tell you how many points were scored on the debating with a retort like "wow."

    I really can't.

    Well your either completely full of **** or an imbecile, which that post pretty well proves. Not much else to say, you said it already.

    "I don't care what you say about me. Just spell my name right."

    The origin is disputed but most likely this can be attributed to either P.T. Barnum or "Big Tim" Sullivan, a high-profile and very controversial political figure who was part of the Tammany Hall political machine in New York City at the end of the nineteenth century.

    Nor should you. And let's not think it's only liberal bias. The conservative media is just as blatant with their bias. Fox set the standard with their "fair and balanced" BS, but unfortunately the liberal driven media responded with a race to the bottom.

    Even that isn't news ... it was news 20 years ago, now it's past.

    I don't think such a minor mis-speak gets reported for any of the recent presidents.

    Let me go on record by saying that I'm one of probably millions that is glad Hillary lost but wish someone else would have won. If other Republicans oppose President Trump i the 2020 primaries I would vote for someone else. He is very polarizing and we don't need that in the White House. However, I don't disagree with very little as to what he has done as president.

    As far as the bias in the media…it's pretty clear. Newscasters are supposed to be unbiased and impartial yet more than a few were literally in tears on election night. One, when talking about the Trump victory described it as "this is what we are now faced with" as if it was a disaster of epic proportions.

    One of the best examples I can give of the bias is how Melania Trump is portrayed. Several photos have been published showing her in a less that pleasant light. Her Christmas decorations were negatively judged. Hundreds of photos are taken every day. It isn't hard to find one of her not smiling. Would they have done this to Michele Obama (they probably would have let Michele approve any photo before publishing.) Melania hasn't appeared on any magazine covers, something that used to be common for first ladies. (Now that I think of it, she seems to rarely referred to as "First Lady.")

    Everyone keeps complaining how Fox News is biased towards Trump. I don't see it that way. They have gone with several negative Trump stories. I believe they report fairly. They may seem biased because they are the only ones that give the president a fair chance. Listen to Morning Joe, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O'Donnel on MSNBC. They do entire shows knocking the president. Joy Reid is off the charts in this area. Her entire schtick is how racist everything is and how bad the Trump presidency is. MSNBC and CNN can't go an entire day without knocking the president.

    Trump can't be wrong on everything. We all get it…you hate him, Hail Hillary lost and you can't believe it. But it's been over the a year and a half. Show the president some support and respect. By all means oppose him in 2020. Run a spirited campaign and let's see what happens, but support the man in the White House.

    What we have now is like having no government. Incredible amounts of time is being wasted on what amounts to petulant politicians.

    You lost. Move on.
    No. Fox is also biased. They set the standard for blatant bias. But that doesn't excuse other media for doing the same thing (or even taking it farther).
