    Not in the title. Which was misleading because you left out part of the sentence. Which is why the last person to try this got their thread locked. Which is what should happen to this thread as well.

    oh so I am not supposed to post a title that does not pass you libs muster- got it

    I was a journalism major and we were taught to use the headline as a tease to get people to read the article- the fact that you libs do not like the headline does not make it misleading-had you read the article you would see that obama did say that -

    I am pretty sure it was Oklahoma that locked that thread.

    You were not taught to mislead with the headline, or if you were, that was wrong. Your thread title is misleading because you changed the meaning of the sentence by leaving out important words that changed the meaning. If you change the meaning of a sentence by cutting it, that is, by definition, misleading, at best. And I am being kind in calling it that.

    ahh so I edited the title it just for you boys

    does not change the fact that I posted what he said

    it also does not change the fact that you libs hate it when former prezbo is singled out to be the divider he was and still is

    Okay, so the title has been changed, which might make the thread pass the muster of being just honest enough to remain on the board. Now can you explain to me how that sentence is derogatory to anybody versus discussing the need for a basic set of agreed upon facts?

    And you only want yours, right? Why else would you be relying on media sources that produce misleading headlines?

    Fox News actually does a fairly decent job of reporting actual news. Although I do not watch Fox News very often I do trust the reporting of Chris Wallace and Shep Smith. The problem with the overwhelming majority of Fox News viewers is that they do not watch the network for the news. They watch Fox because they're fans of the fictionalized right-wing narratives of the Fox talking heads like Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, Tucker Carlson, formerly Bill O'Reilly and the clowns who broadcast in the morning under the collective title of "Fox and Friends".

    Here is the headline of the article you posted:

    Obama Re-Emerges to Say Fox News Viewers 'Are Living on a Different Planet'

    That headline changes the meaning of what he said in the sentence, which was a comparative statement. It is no more correct than saying "Obama Re-Emerges to Say NPR Listners 'Are Living on a Different Planet."

    hmmm so my thread headline and the paragraph that I posted are accurate now you take issue with the headline of the article- trying to think what you libs would go nuts over is why I posted the 3 paragraphs- those were his quoted words-you libs think yo always know exactly what Prez Trump means by his words but then want to parse former prezbo's- gee what a surprise

    So you think that it would be accurate to argue that he said listeners to NPR were from a different planet?

    river now that you are a mod and I can no longer ignore you I will try and answer- it is what your little graphs certainly want to say however I do not believe it to be true and think those little graphs are done in such a way to get that result- you libs cannot stand that cons have a mostly conservative network that we watch instead of the liberal one sided drivel of all the other networks

    Don’t matter to me: First I was called a“Deplorable” now I’m called an “Alien”.
    Both Hillary and Obama are consummate liars and both are individuls I have zero respect for. Neither person has ever spoken for me or my beliefs.
