The press has become a member of the established order. That is who they hang out with, travel with , whose parties and soirees they attend and whom they marry and consult for. Their salaries and place on the social totem pole reflect this so now do their interests The piece in the NYT by Mr. Rutenberg is itself biased and obviously he is not even aware of it. The media no longer reflects the values and views of the average American Let’s look at the other side: $400,MM for ransom for 4 US hostages . Palettes of foreign denominated cash at night in an unmarked plane before the hostages were able to depart. Verified by one the hostages. The administration did El Chapo proud. Hillary:” Nothing new here” Outrage, by the press, none! According to the FBI, re: the email thingy, they do not recommend indictment of Hillary, because they “could find no intent ” It is now a legal defense to say ” I didn’t mean to kill her” Trump has been in the limelight for 30 years, but according to the author, we know nothing about him. We elected Obama without any inquiry into any of his bonafides by the press, including even his college transcripts.
Here is my recommendation for the Media: Prior to any article, “panel” discussion” or “report”, or at the beginning of any broadcast, by any media outlet, the author, journalist , reporter or pundit should state his /her party affiliation and who they plan to vote for in the coming elections. Let the public decide on the objectivity.
“But I didn’t mean to Mr. Comey. May I go now now?”

How accurate were the polls , or anybody else, about Trump’s primary success. The Dem convention was a freak show.
No American flags until the Drudge pointed it out.
Get ready for a Dem slaughter…Surprise

Cruz behaved like a petulant loser, and told me more about who he is than all the other crap .
He will NEVER get my vote
Exactly how did he do that? He gave an excellent speech as he suspended his campaign once the path was no longer there after Indiana, and he has been virtually invisible since, other than once in a while speaking about various bills in the senate. Show me a single example of Cruz being a "petulant loser". He will never get your vote because you aren't a conservative and you were NEVER a Cruz supporter to begin with. False flag lie from you.
Fire the idiot or lose all credibility

Isn’t congress supposed to be the people’s representative?
There should be no secrets unless security of the nation is involved. I bet this one is political, having to do the Iran “deal”.
Not credible that the incompetence stopped at an O5 ( USN commander level).
If he is still getting a pension, it is all a bunch of crap.
“Fired” is not a term used by the military when discharging their servicemen and women.

A lifelong hi paying super status job where he would be able to influence legislation according to the constitution until death ?
I believe he would take it in a heartbeat!

He is lying once again.
A lifelong, well paying hi profile job. Able to influence legislation till he dies. and he doesn’t really have to get along with anybody,
Any money that he’d take the job in a heartbeat?

Like Trump says, they talk forever and study and investigate but never DO anything.

Check old Larry on this skit with John Oliver ..A riot
I wonder who Tapper would prefer to combat ISIS,. Hillary or Donald?
Almost without exception, all the pundits, “experts” consultants and advisors’ rice bowls are totally dependent on having that can kicked down the road, and critiquing every bounce. If the can were to go away, .no more rice. Think about it.
