I think the people at cnn are idiots. Why would you let an employee say such a thing when you have settled (lost) a lawsuit for disparagement of a minor. Now that's stupid. By the way I just disparaged cnn.

By the time this is over, Sandmann should own CNN. Then he can change it into the Conservative News Network.

If this is true It might be time to fire the artillery barrage at CNN by Woods. Sandmann could own the place because of Smoking Joe Lockhart loose lips. Let's hope it happens.

So did I, #9. I laughed and applauded spontaneously and wondered if anyone else had the same response. The entire convention has been so uplifting. I just wish Fox News would allow us to hear every speaker, instead of the regular talk show hosts and their guests blocking them. That has been extremely annoying.

Poster9 I switched to CSPAN when Fox interrupted with their unwanted opinions. CSPAN covered all the people that weren’t “stars” but good folks and their stories were wonderful to hear. When a speaker came on I switched to Fox as CSPAN uses a small screen. Fox is too full of themselves. I don’t want to hear them and their opinions but they make it all about them. The second night was a home run with bases loaded!

Watch it from C-Span. No interruptions or talking heads. Joe is another irrelevant from the Clinton's. He trashes a young man whose only "crime" was to have to stand and listen to an anarcist beat a drum in his face and call him names. Oh, yes, he wore a MAGA hat. For Shame! Lockhart is the one who supported and defended the Clinton's through their real scandals. He made millions doing so. He is a first class Communist jerk.

Consciously omitted and deliberately edited from all the coverage of Nick Sandmann and the other Covington kids is that they were being screamed at and abused by a cadre of Black Israelites standing just a few feet away. The man with the drum heard the racket and came over to see how he could get in on the 'action'. That part of the story of course is not part of the Degenerate Socialist 'Narrative', so no one knows about that being the part that started the whole thing.

We watched it on C-span, because, even with the better picture on FOX, the FOX 'stars' like Hannity, had to explain to we dummies what the speaker said, whilst blocking the beginning of the next speakers first few minutes. I hate it when dems have to explain to me that what I heard was not what was said, but it's especially annoying when conservatives tell me what was said.

Lin Wood probably needs to make a call to his contact at CNN's law offfice. He's smart enough of a lawyer to include clauses that both sides are not to disparage each other as a part of the settlement. And CNN's lawyers obviously are unable or unwilling to advise their client and their compensated "on-air talent" (I use that term generically) to watch their tounges. I used to call an adult berating a youth for sport as bullying. And this is what I see here, Again. Wanna fight Donald Trump and adult Republicans? Go ahead, we can dish it out more than you can take it. And go run, wah, wah, wah, under your mommie's skirts crying "oh, mommie, they're being mean to me." Just like childhood bullies always do.

In recent weeks, not only have we seen some very large holes punched in the narrative of what happened to George Floyd, but we’ve also seen the very thin veil come off, as the “peaceful protests” by Black Lives Matter and Antifa rapidly devolved into perhaps the worst string of violent riots the country has ever seen.

What planet does Joe Biden live on? In his campaign for president, he's promised more lockdowns if the "experts" tell him to do it, maybe permanent lockdown, lockdown as a lifestyle, which means shutting down the entire country. It's bizarre stuff given that it's already been done, with plenty of unintended consequences. It's a supposed leadership redo of President Trump's supposedly bad leadership on COVID. This, according to Joe, is how one really does it, so rewind the reel to March 2020 and let him start the lockdowns from there as if nothing had at all changed (snip) the call of someone still living in March 2020, embedded in amber

The news made for splashy headlines, but story behind the charges was more mundane. Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee veteran and Purple Heart recipient, used a crowdfunding website as part of a political gag aimed at raising $1 billion dollars to construct a U.S.-Mexico border wall. After unexpectedly raising $17 million dollars within the first week, Kolfage decided to hand off the suddenly real and ambitious initiative to someone with more experience, connections, and resources.

The Milwaukee Bucks violated the collective bargaining agreement with the league when they decided to protest by not playing today’s game against the Orlando Magic.

KENOSHA, Wis. — Downtown buildings set ablaze by arsonists were still smoldering from the night before when Kirk Ingram started to paint an angel on his boarded-up store front. Ingram, a Democrat who runs a massage therapy business, said the war-zone images of his city on TV — armed people running through the streets, burned cars and broken windows — were bolstering President Donald Trump's get-tough message. Maybe a few uplifting murals could start to tell a different story about Kenosha, Ingram said Wednesday. Trump has attempted to frame the violent unrest in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting as

Deciding to go Colin Kaepernick one better, the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks players decided to cancel their playoff game to protest the Kenosha, Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake, a career criminal with a warrant out for 3rd degree sexual assault, who was resisting arrest. That act triggered racial grievance riots, along with lootings, destruction, and a likely permanent decline for Kenosha, as usually happens in riot-torn cities. But the NBA didn't want to leave it alone and let justice take its course. Someone in the locker room of the Bucks suggested a game strike, and then the rest of them, lemmings-like, jumped onboard.
