USA Today. Liberal is as Liberal does. BTW that article is before he was elected. Since he did win, the article is smoke and mirrors or revealed nothing that would disqualify him. X
Fox - More R then D but at least an attempt is there to be balanced, They actually will report news, instead of 25 Trump hit pieces, "Illegals" pity party's and agenda driven concocted BS.
A. Just because Politifact projected Hillary winning does not mean they aren't credible. Almost every poll had Hillary winning even Nate Silver who has a long history of predicting elections correctly had her winning though 538 was 70/30.
B. Nobody said lawsuits and bankruptcy disqualified him to be president. They said it made him not as great a businessman as he might want you to believe. Pre or post election has nothing to with it. And usually where there is smoke there is fire. And on a comparable basis, his level of bankruptcy and lawsuits are not normal. He is a bully.
C. Most media outlets have some leaning but saying Fox attempts to be balanced is laughable. Chris Wallace attempts to be balanced. The rest just deliver the Republican talking points. CNN/MSNBC - left. Fox - Right. Print - left - radio - right. That's how it is. Discern your information accordingly, try to get perspective by taking in both sids and make your own decisions. But don't pretend bias is less prevalent in the outlet of your choice.
The point you left out is even your "balanced" outlet reported on Trump''s bankruptcies. So at least admit that the original point is correct or at least reported as such by a number of news outlets. I could have added in a bunch more links to other news sources I just felt like 3 examples were enough.
A) They were right in line with the other Liberal controlled rags in their polls and opinions right thru the primaries and General Election. There was a noticeable bias toward the left thru it all.
B) 4 Bankruptcy's in over 500 business's is only a failure in your mind. I think it's a pretty good track record. And using the system to benefit oneself makes him smart but bothers you because you don't know how to make the system work for you like he does. If you did and could, you probably would do it too.
C)Is again another glaring example of someone from the left thinking everyone needs to be told how to think and act. Hate to break it to you but nobody cares how YOU think THEY should do anything because you think you know it all. That's how you come across here and I'll pass on your pre school ramblings.
I said, "More R then D but at least an attempt is there to be balanced" ... Again an attempt, not flat out balanced as you suggest..
If you really did spend any substantial time there you'd know that although most are on the Right, Fox gives regular platforms to decidedly left contributors.
Juan Williams, Geraldo, Sheperd Smith, Bob Beckel(sp)... to name a few and the Tucker Carlson segment is generally a 1 on 1 debate with both sides represented.
None of the Left outlets give that much time to the right viewpoint.
