no one trusts the MSM anymore. It is SOOO 1991!

Either put up or shut up. It’s quite clear that the best they’ve got is a pair of 3s. I call. Let’s see who wins and who is just a full-of-crap bluffer. The Democrat MSM just loves to pretend that there are links between Trump and Russia–but there are not.
They got nothin‘, A pair of 3s would be a big improvement to their hand! I call. The time for bluffing is over–show what you got.
that Obama wiretapped him is entirely plausible. Obama is KNOWN to have done this before, so it’s not like we can just say that Obama would never do such a thing. He would and he has. It is a pattern.
I know the Lamestream media and the usual Democrat media hacks (though I repeat myself) have tried to make this seem like just an example of Trump’s paranoia, but that is just not true. So did Obama “bug” Trump? Yeah, most likely. Highly likely. Obama is just a bad, immoral guy. THIS is who he IS.
is quite clear that Snopes plays fast and loose with the truth. Unfortunately, one cannot trust them. They are just shilling for a certain world-view.
Of course, that brings up the question of who you can ultimately trust. The answer? No one living on this earth.
There is no human source of unimpeachable knowledge. There is effort to be truthful, but not Cartesian certainty. There is no human Truth-Teller. There are only accounts, to riff off the Post-Modernists. So science is not a foundation for truth because it is dependent on human interpretation–a graph of numbers is totally meaningless until some human assigns meaning to it.
As Carl Popper so famously said, it is structurally impossible (due to the logical fallacy of Affirming The Consequent) to prove a theory correct (you can just rule out competing theories–thus falsification). And one can NEVER falsify ALL other known and unknown or even implausible explanations–it is logically and practically impossible. You can get approximations of truth from science (and that is indeed useful), but no Cartesian certainty. You get accounts, not immutable facts.
Journalism certainly isn’t a source of Truth–it is just the accounts and interpretations of the journalist. The only option is to turn to another source, or we are totally adrift on a Godless sea… In other words, the BEST sources of human-sourced knowledge have been incontrovertibly demonstrated to have feet of clay. They are ultimately unreliable.
Now Snopes has dutifully pooped in its own bed, following the lead of “climate scientists” and the MSM. You watch, this is the beginning of the end for Snopes. Their ONLY claim was that they told the truth, and that has been shown to be unequivocally false. They are shown to be just another axe-grinding hack. And ONE incident of demonstrable dishonesty ruins the whole thing–if it is 99% accurate, you can never be sure that any one item is not in the 1% false group. You can fish the poop out of the soup, but that doesn’t make the soup appetizing. It’s (to quote the original Iron Chef) OVAH! They are a dead man walking. I mean, on what grounds should I believe Snopes over a dog-faced baboon? I can’t think of one…
Yes, I agree that in the human realm there are no facts, only accounts. But one can STRIVE to give valid accounts. While that won’t fix the knowledge problem, it would be practically useful.
This Snopes thing is just another nail in the coffin of human truth. Already it is clear that only a great fool trusts the MSM. They abdicated their role of honest broker long ago.
The MSM are buffoons. They either lie or are morons. In either case, they are far from reliable.
is not going to the “nerd prom” at all. Good.
I think it is genius. Why give credence to the cretins? There was no “upside” at all for him. The nerd prom just won’t survive without Trump. But Trump can certainly survive without the nerd prom. These are NOT his people.
Things are different, now. The MSM is so horribly biased anyway that there is no way Trump could go there and be treated with any decency at all. I wouldn’t feed the trolls!
It just would not end well. Bravo for Trump in cutting the head off this particular snake.
I’m sure the nerd prom will go on as planned this year. But next year? Will they even plan it knowing that Trump probably won’t show? Is this the end of the self-congraduatory nerd prom? The year after there would be some bitter mumbles, and then nothing after that.
the MSM the heebie-jeebies, and for good reason. You know they are shaking in their boots right now.
Look, anyone with two brain cells to rub together has long known that the MSM is horribly biased! But it becomes clearer and clearer every day.
So the MSM media lackeys fail to report facts because by doing so it would prove Donald Trump right. At long last, have they no shame? I mean, really!
No wonder few give a rat’s patoot what they say. No wonder, indeed. We live in a post-modern world and they have given NO reason why I should believe them over a dog-faced baboon or some stranger creature still (to quote Socrates). In fact, they have shown themselves to be totally untrustworthy.
This is not just bias, it is rank dishonesty. No wonder people don’t believe them! They lie and otherwise deliberately deceive. They are just hacks with a particular socio-political ax to grind. Only a great fool believes them without other, independent proof. I am NOT a great fool. I know that very often they are full of crap.
Thanks. MSM! You pooped in the soup. Good job.
Members of the traditional news media are melting down because… they are finally being called out for being shills and hacks. And Trump is right to call them out. They just don’t like it that their rock is being picked up and they are being exposed to sunlight. THAT is why they are frantically scurrying about. Hit pigeons flutter.
Only a great fool thinks that they are a reliable source. I, for one, am not a great fool…
