    Do you have any evidence that the multiple surveys of current event knowledge are all wrong? Or do you just not like the result?
    But let me ask this,do you think Fox viewers and NPR listeners are generally very different in their world views?

    So you don't think you are engaging in a worthless attempt at intellectual superiority and being smug when you falsely declare that people with other political ideology are all just after a government check and don't work? Because that seems quite smug. And not just smug. Empirically false as well, given the information he posted.

    As a journalism major you would have learned every word has a meaningful impact on the reader. Journalists interjecting bias is a common complaint heard from all corners of the political arena. The use of descriptive words - such as little in this case - denigrate or attempt to diminish the contributions, opinions, or thoughts of one's political opposite. Using verbal cheap shots like this is manipulative and insulting .

    Then again, a good deal of what is posted on this forum is denigrating, insulting, and emotionally overwrought.

    No, that was in response to your claim about income and work. You really couldn't follow that?

    Just to be clear. Trump called African nations shitholes, failed to condem white supremecists after their group killed someone, called Mexicans rapists, claimed the election rigged, said his democrat opponent should be in jail, called the heads of the FBI and CIA liars, called the democrats the biggest strength of ISIS, went golfing on MLK jr day, called Liz Warren pocohontas, claimed our last president was born in Kenya, called everybody media outlet other than Fox fake news, accused an FBI agent of treason, called the NFL weak for allowing racial protests, called the senate minorit leader a clown, supported Roy Moore, called the democratic Vice Presidential candidate a joke, said Megyn Kelly had blood coming out of her whatever, said Don Lemon was as dumb as a rock, called Alicia Machado, one of his Miss Universe winners, disgusting, claimed that he was going to let Obamacare fail to stick it to the democrats, called Bernie Sanders crazy, defended Sheriff Arpaio, called the mayor of San Juan nasty after her island was devestated by hurricane Maria, and he’s not divisive.

    But Obama suggests that Fox and NPR report stories from a different perspective and you think HE’S the great divider??? How does your mind justify this stuff?

    Every single one of those things happened. I'm not sure how you can call them bullshit talking points unless you actually live on a different planet. If so, ask someone who lives on Earth to fill you in on the past couple years.

    I'm in utter disbelief at the ability of people to stick their heads in the sand and refuse to acknowledge facts.

    Like lawyer said, Trump really said those things, right?

    It’s fine if you like Trump better, but to think of him as a uniter seems totally at odds with the facts.

    So when Obama fails to unite its because is he’s divisive, but Trump fails it’s because the other side is just wrong.

    Bill, you seem to have lost whatever part of you allows you to see beyond your team spirit. You criticizing Obama for being divisive is like an LSU fan criticizing an opposing coach’s diction.

    Trump is totally divisive. It’s fine. You yourself have commented several times on how happy it makes you that he’s angering the libs. Does that sound like either of you are into unity?

    Declaring the "whole deal" of the liberal left are the fearful charges on your emotionally over wrought list, is no more accurate than the similarly over wrought fearful claims made against the right wing by the extreme left.

    Hillary is the reason Trump beat the Democrat nominee. Most any other Democrat nominee besides Clinton - or Sanders - would have smashed Trump.

    Bill is conflicted. He's happy Trump was elected but likely a little embarrassed and angry Trump's indiscretions and hypocrisies are compromising the highly touted holier-than-thou values from certain quarters within Trump's support group. That anger needs a target to assuage the embarrassment. What better one than the one that sufficed for nigh on to 10 years now.

    Conservatives were kneecapped by the electoral process server into accepting Trump as the party's unifier, expecting him - wanting him - to keep his campaign promises. When certain Christian leaders endorsed Trump's candidacy, assuring the faithless the amoral narcissist was the Christian choice, they found ways to align their politics with previous professions of faith.

    NPR is so bad. They talk so slowly with circular logic. Yet these overpaid hacks think they are so intelligent.
