US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

What should be said is that CNN is the biggest threat to the current administration....

This administration is the current biggest threat to national security.
To be honest, I am kinda speaking of the tension on the streets at home.
Please explain this, Mick - fascinating take on current events.

Home meaning in the US. Not that we are immune to it north of the 49th.
While I'm here though, I thought the coverage of the California wild fires was absolutely piss poor!
I have hundreds of friends there. Of course I was able to find out what I needed myself but I found the reporting on it almost like an after thought.

So their coverage of the California wildfires is "the biggest threat to national security?"

No. Just something else I am complaining about in regards to their programming but you know that, don't you. ;)

So you don't really have a reason for stating CNN is the biggest threat? Sounds like you are just regurgitating talking points.... But you already know that, don't you?

So they've gone from adequate, to the greatest threat to national security? How long did that take?

Well, if ur gonna keep pushin! When they decided to SLANT, TAINT, CREATE BIAS on just about every topic they choose.
They choose who speaks and who doesn't. They hand pick em!!!. It's laughable but ignorant.
Can easily see this inciting whackos to the point of pushing them over the edge at home AND in foreign Nations.
What's the point? You know as well as I do what they are trying to do. Discredit at any cost!!!!!
Happy now?
Keep your binoculars close by. You wouldn't want to miss one of those nasty Russian spies. :mrgreen:

Just not sure why you're singling out CNN, when every news network does this.

Did they incite the armed whackjob that went into the DC pizza place? Are they inciting Nazis and the KKK?

CNN is entertainment, like FOX and the rest. You're overestimating their ability incite any one. They are good for selling wars, but as for incinting mass change? I really don't see where going with this - except that I'm guessing you disagree with their brand of entertainment.

Seems to me that all the infotainment news agencies get called out for fake news whenever it goes against The Donald...

I gotta admit though I don’t listen much except for 5 or ten minutes of RT. Yeah they are biased but at least I know which way they are biased.

Other than that Donald’s tweets are plenty enough to show what level he operates on.

From what I am seeing... it’s not as much of what they report(against the Donald) as it is what they don’t report...anything pro administration imho

Maybe because there is nothing positive to report?

I know you’re a righty Rats but this guy makes George bush look like George Washington

And could just as easily say FOX is all positive towards the administration.
I don't watch CNN (or the rest), but the Mick is just blurting out stuff that has no basis in reality.

Anyone that relies on the infotainment networks get what they deserve (ignorance).

There's bias in all news, and it's only human nature to drift towards sources that confirm our thoughts.
