    They spent about 20 minutes about it this morning on Morning Joe.

    Considering this story has been a non-issue for me from when it was first reported, I'm glad they didn't waste anytime about this. Smollett should go to jail and pay a big penalty for what he did.

    Actually surprised he didn't flat out say the domestic terror plot was a liberal plant to get the focus off Smollett story.

    Strange, Stone used the same excuse !!!!!!!!!!

    It doesn’t matter that it’s on video. “Alleged” is the legal fig-leaf that any media outlet is going to use until there’s a resolution.

    It really feels dirty bitching about media coverage, but this cant go unsaid.
    I thought some of the I'm not on either siders would have brought this up

    https://www.alternet.org/2019/03/gop...e-wave-report/


    It really is amazing to look back and see how the political press in America
    absolutely showered the tea party with nonstop coverage after Obama was elected

    geez, wonder why that was ?

    The article didnt specify positive or negative coverage.
    Although at that time in Tea Party circles referring to Michelle as an ape or spitting on John Lewis was seen as a positive.
    Am I off base with that observation ?

    ..................

    oh yeah, let us note Krgrecw was our first poster to invoke race in March of 2019

    God damn you’re a ****ing moron. John Lewis was never spit on. You really do believe anything you read as long as it fits in your narrative

    I mis remembered I am sorry.
    We can feel reassured that he was merely called "******" .
    While being spit on or at is still an unresolved claim.
    And Mrs Obama ?

    You brought this up in defense of lop sided coverage

    Wow

    Funny there is no mention of this.

    Makes you wonder how anyone could have pushed a narrative that was so obviously false for so long.
    Warm feelings guy!

    Linked this same article elsewhere thinking it lends itself to a whole other conversation

    https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...ial-type=owned



    Hannity was treated in Texas like a member of the Administration because he virtually is one. The same can be said of Fox’s chairman, Rupert Murdoch. Fox has long been a bane of liberals, but in the past two years many people who watch the network closely, including some Fox alumni, say that it has evolved into something that hasn’t existed before in the United States. Nicole Hemmer, an assistant professor of Presidential studies at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and the author of “Messengers of the Right,” a history of the conservative media’s impact on American politics, says of Fox, “It’s the closest we’ve come to having state TV.”
    “Reject the logic that says someone else’s gain necessitates my loss, and that my gain must come at the cost of another person.”
