    You're wrong, but that's all I can say about that.

    --

    Now why in the world would Putin prefer Trump to Hillary or Biden?
    Biden didn't run in 2016.

    Either it's "all you can say," or it isn't.

    The "why" is because of the weaknesses of his character and his desire to suck up to Putin and protect his future money interests in Moscow and beyond.

    Furthermore, as I noted, there was evidentiary testimony from more than one agency that the Russian interference tilted in favor of Trump. It just is.

    Fuck you both. As if I would ever use what you do for a living as an aspersion against you.

    This just means that all you have left is toxic trolling.

    Just to be clear, I was casting aspersions on your intellect. Maybe you just haven't applied yourself yet, and it's just a problem of effort.

    I don't think there are a lot of kids you could fuck up along the way. It's an English class. They aren't paying attention to what you're making them read or what your textbook tells them the salient points are anyway.

    Again with the the comprehension: I cast no aspersions because of your job. I feel badly that the best response you can give in a debate is "because I say it is."

    Allow me to break up the heated debate that has already reached personal insults.

    I usually avoid American media, as they're all biased, although even when trying to avoid it you can't really entirely, because it's too present. I feel like I'm getting a wider picture by following also German Bild and Welt, slovenian newspapers (these are mostly poorly translated american news anyway), russian news and chinese news. Honorable mention also goes to Qatar's Al Jazeera. I'm not an idiot, I understand the biases frequently present in each of the papers, but you do get a wider picture, I feel.

    adhoc-
    You are correct that [I]all[I] media are biased, with some easier to detect and deal with. European and Asian media have their own peculiar biases and, with regard to American politics, have both cultural and language differences to deal with. Discussions about the US 1st and 2nd Amendments begin from very different historical and political perspectives.
    All of which can make us reconsider the bases for our own positions.

    No, not all media is biased. It's just something to say by people who disagree with factual information.

    No, all media is biased, just like all people have biases.
    Even you and I.

    Kaz, we ought to demand that reporters be honest. We, and they, might have a "bias", where a "bias" includes what we have learned over some years. We need reporting that is reasonably honest. Most of us are smart enough to discard "opinion pieces", but we need writing that is not fabrication.

    I miss journalism. Journalism, as in journalism, not as in copying / pasting /translating articles from Reuters.

    Good grief, there are people giving their lives to report the news. It is sad to see such a broad brush used to negate so many brave people.

    I mean, if you think the Alamo was about Texas independance, you're part right. The Texans wanted slaves.
