    If you don’t listen to CNN,
    you are uninformed.

    That was said about Reader's Digest in the 1960s
    When is a WASP uninformed?
    When his copy of Reader's Digest is lost in the post.
    When is a WASP misinformed?
    When he has . . . . . .

    It is not compulsory to read my posts, but it seems you can’t stop yourself doing it.

    You are an effective troll, Rummy. Always hooking the same school of fish, no matter how weak the bait...

    If you are insinuating trolling the forum, I leave that and the making of snide remarks to grandmasters such as your good self.

    Anyhow, Fox News jokes are much funnier..

    What's the difference between Fox News and the North Korean government?
    One is a racist prick of a system that is incredibly biased and is trying to force you to to follow its beliefs and the other is the North Korean government.

    What's the difference between a washing machine and Fox news?
    No difference: They both spin dirty laundry till it smells better.


    Latest Fox News election poll shows Trump way ahead ...
    ... in all 87 states.

    Sometimes the truth is funnier :

    TOP NEWS

    Obama: "I've now been to 57 states"

    Posted May 9, 2008
    May 9 - On the campaign trail in Beaverton, Oregon, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama mistakenly tells a crowd that's he's been to 57 states - with one left to go.

    He may be referring to the mental states of the voters as well.
    without freedom of speech, we wouldn't know who the idiots are.

    ^ The difference being, that Obama discussed the incident with reporters after the rally and admitted what he had said..

    On the other hand, when Trump posted the tweet below, one of his staffers gave him a heads-up - (The Chiefs play in Kansas City, MISSOURI not Kansas City, KANSAS.)
    The initial Trump tweet was deleted and replaced by one with the right state affiliation. But it was too late..
    Former Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill took a screenshot of Trump's tweet and added: "It’s Missouri you stone cold idiot."

    I only watch Fox News… where else can I get the absolutely pure and unbiased truth?
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."
