There's a fine line between passion and grandstanding.

"No refunds" is the rule in Las Vegas.

"We'll see" was Brady's answer when asked if he was confident of playing Sunday.

He has about as much chance of not playing in that game as I have of playing in it.

Then don't.  I get your argument.  "If the press reported to everybody what I already know Trump would be gone!"

You're using the word "mainstream", not me.  If you don't want to get your news from the mainstream media, get it elsewhere.  There's plenty.  Again, your issue is not with the media, it's with how people choose to get their news.     

As far as the story in the USA Today....how can a story reported in the largest circulation newspaper in the United States "[fly] under the radar." Not reported elsewhere?  I guess there goes your theory of a monolithic media

That he's speaking at the DC Pro-Life rally today in  front of what is sure to be an adoring crowd is more proof that we've entered a world that I'm not familiar with.

If an "argument" starts with "OF COURSE the press is a monolithic enterprise," then, sorry, I'm probably not going to go much further.  Following each other's stories does not make for a monolith.  The press is far vaster than it used to be.  To use the most obvious example, what's reported as on Fox "News" and Breitbart and other right-wing blog/web sites is hardly what's reported in other places.  You're issue isn't with the media, it's with what people choose to accept and not accept.  I'm sure you'll soldier on without my agreeing with your "OF COURSE."

Simple, logic question, though.  If the press isn't reporting on the stories of "incompetence, boorishness and corruption," (and for the record I believe this "Presidency" to be easily the worst of any of our lives) where are you finding out about them?  

But, as always agreeing to disagree is fine by me and you can use the fiery hot passion of your youth to soldier on.
