Typical network news report on the election
I'm listening to the radio top of the hour news. ABC news. First story is about Trump.
Frank Lutz says Trump should be polling better at this time and would be if he'd appealed to disaffected independents.
That was the Trump report. Next up was the Hillary report.
A new batch of Wikileaks is out about how in 2015 her campaign was discussing how to address the e-mail scandal. The main anchor says, "more from our reporter".
They cut to her and I am thinking that the more detailed follow-up by the reporter will say what the campaign was discussing. But, no. Not at all.
Reporter follows up saying nothing about the content of the Clinton Camp's discussion, but says, "it doesn't look like this latest release has harmed Hillary Clinton's campaign". That was it.
So, how is it supposed to harm (or help for that matter) her campaign if they don't say what it is that was revealed in the Wikileaks documents?
I wouldn't even care if they were as biased as they are if they actually reported news!
They never simply report what Trump did and said, what Hillary did and said, what oppo stuff has come out about them. No.
They have to report what we should think without even reporting news.
What the alphabet networks offer is not organic news, it is synthetic, manufactured news to fit their agenda. They mention, but never give wings to Hillary’s numerous scandals, just was said in a previous post.
Hillary came in next to first.
The last time I heard media Reporting ;ike this was when R.M.Nixion was running for his first term.
WHY WOULD ANY CONSERVATIVE WATCH NETWORK NEWS OR TV FOR THAT MATTER?
There’s so much technology out there that makes it possible to completely avoid them!!
Stop the madness and suffering!! :)

The UK Daily Mail is especially obnoxious. All week, top story is a negative on Trump. All other Trump stories are negative. pastel stories about Hillary. Obvious that the editors went through hundreds of photos to pick the worst of Trump and the best of Hillary (not possible).
I predict dozens if not hundreds of cases (some live on the air) of sepukku on election night.
Read more carefully. I’m listening to the radio.
I was in the car listening to the food show.
These stations do network news at the top of the hour.
I’m with you as far as network news. I don’t have cable, I don’t watch TV except old stuff over the air. I can’t stand any of the carp put out by mainstream media.
But hearing the reports on the radio clues me in to their current agendas and talking points.
You're right, ignoring the enemy's communications is a sure
route to victory as history clearly shows. It never fails.
Do I really need a sarcasm tag?
and what have we gained from a thousand threads of them giving false polls or ignoring the news.
The enemy is the dem party, the media are useful idiots.
Would have expected you to know that from your usually sharp posts.
The food show. They give good advice on dishes?
They move too fast for me to follow
I need a recipe book with my memory :)
This should be a sticky on FR....Cable has been gone from my house for maybe 6 years..... I watch NO TV news....Many people on FR say this but so many dingleberries keep watching and waiting for some kind of fairness.....STOP it people!!!! FOX sucks ass...and the rest is in the tank the same.....Just stop making these old whiny posts. If you get the same results and keep banging your head against a brick wall looking for something different....you’re the person nutty as a squirrel turd...not me!
I listen to the local news radio station when I commute in the weekday morning.
In the last month they have always devoted thirty seconds to a minute on the national election.
They have never mentioned the word Wikileaks.
Most of the stories are horserace “Hillary has big lead among...”
Trump is only mentioned in the context of groping women.
That is their election coverage.
This is like a McDonalds serving nothing but raw burgers—puke, puke, puke.
What a complete tool. Who does he think is attending all the Trump rallies?
“Typical network news report on the election .”
In a similar vein:
WHDH Boston (NBC) this morning. 9:30 a.m. (They go off at 10.)
A standing report by the anchor in front of “Election 2016” screen:
“Donald Trump with some controversial comments at his rally yesterday, but Hillary was not without her problems of her own in her speech yesterday.”
Video: NFL football game.
Anchor: “Well, obviously the wrong video there, but we’ll bring that to you later.’
Never happens in the next thirty minutes they’re on the air.
Since this newscast was on the air for one or two hours previously, I assume they ran the clip of Hillary, got pushback, and were not allowed to run the clip again.
They babble about knowing what the enemy is up to.
Wikileaks is GOOD for that. O’Keefe is good for that.
MSM is ####ing worthless for that.
They lie and pad polls. WOW!! What a shock.
Social Media at least give you a chance to argue right there and then.
