pb dug into what the right-wing media was saying last night...with the understanding that I'm not into Fox News.

I caught Mark Levin's show last night. And Jesse Kelly. I listened to the gay Guy Curt never heard of while the vote was taking place.

Gang,

Truly, the GOP is the home of openness, inclusion, acceptance, diversity and tolerance and, most of all...FREETHINKING. There was diversity of opinion on the GOP side. Big time.

Mark Levin devoted a whole tirade against pbGOP Nancy Mace! Interesting.

So, the Holy Trinity? MSNBC, HuffPo the NYT? What'd they say?

    They reported the facts of the situation. There was no laughing or any whooping it up that I saw, if that's what you were expecting. This was recognized as the dumpster fire that it is for the Republicans. That it was something they entirely brought on themselves and this country. That the Republicans have once again hurled this country's government into another historical first in chaos. That at this point, the Democrats intend to in no way assist McCarthy or the Republicans get out of the mess they've put themselves in. They did spend a great deal of time on the subject. I suppose because other than for Trump's gag order, it was a pretty slow news day.


    By the way, Bill. You don't have to keep pretending that you don't watch Fox and making excuses for when you do. You can knock it off with all this, "I don't usually listen to so and so, but they said..." nonsense.

    If you're doing that in order that we don't think less of you, you can stop all this ridiculous play acting. It's not possible for us to think any less of you than we already do.

    I do want to mention though that the fact that you at least subconsciously know how mendacious and horrible Fox is and feel this sense of shame whenever you do fall prey to old habits and tune in is a very good sign that there just might be a glimmer of hope for you after all. But we probably shouldn't celebrate too soon. Such moments of mental clarity are rare occurrences for you and they don't often last long.

    But I'm rooting for ya Bill!

    po, what I tended to spect is what you offered yesterday...a sort of bland eulogy, praising him as a rare honest GOP.

    I'd groove on any link you can come up with to something you watched.


  3. by Ponderer on October 4, 2023 7:47 am

    I didn't say there was any "praising" of him.

    Yesterday I watched the coverage of a few different hosts on MSNBC and CNN yesterday about it. I'm sorry that I can't get you a good link though. I hate MSNBC's website. They make it almost impossible to find stuff from the previous day or night.

    Do you have the capability to record shows? If so, I'd recommend that you record Lawrence O'Donnell's show and Ari Melber's. That way, you can watch them at some time when your wife let's you watch what you want to watch. I recall you said once that she won't let you watch things sometimes.

    When I watch what I want to watch, I watch BATTLEBOTS. And, NCAAF and the NFL.

    I refuse to watch either SwampBlueMedia nor SwampRedMedia.

    "I refuse to watch either SwampBlueMedia nor SwampRedMedia." -Hate

    And yet you confessed in this very thread to watching Fox just last night. You even asked me for a link to what I watched last night. Ostensibly to watch it yourself one would assume.


    This is a good example of why nobody believes anything you say, Bill. Besides most of the stuff you blabber being gibberish, you simply are not consistent from one paragraph to the next.

    I'm not wanting to speak for lead, but what I saw in this exchange. He did say that. For a very specific reason. He was up front. Then he ask you for a cite of what you watched about the same issue. I thought is was nothing more than to compare how each side is looking at this.

    I didn't think "the Five" was too kind at all about it. McCarthy was ripped for making deals with the dims and not talking to his caucus even that he was talking to them about issues. That brings up the question of his transparency which he promised.

    For me, voting yes to vacate the seat would be a tough sell. There were things that were on the table that are now gone. They had started a bi-partisan bill on the border. Gone. That would have helped both parties.

    I applaud him for asking. I would have looked over your citation just to learn another side of the issue if nothing else. I don't view the ask as anything at all nefarious.

    Where did I claim to watch Fox just last night?

    I didn't watch a moment of tube last night at all.

    There is no progressive media outside of the deepest corners of the internet.
