The news coverage in Canada is only very negative.  Like Trump is basically described and shown as a total clown, liar, raper, con, awkward, Russian (pretty much). It doesn't seem like there is a second side of the coin. What do you think ? Is he going to be President longer than a year ?  IMOO, he will resign before being beheaded and claim health issues and a year after blame Obama for his health issues. blow nose

He's not very popular in Sweden either. Recently, our daily newspaper had a whole spread dedicated to refuting his inaccurate statements and claims about Swedish politics. He is, without a doubt, the worst president in US history.

He is an embarrassment to his country. His debunked claims at wiretapping forced the US to apologize to the UK for dragging their agency into that mess.

His latest moves to undermine climate change controls in the US will not only FAIL to bring new jobs to the outdated coal industry- they will endanger the rest of the planet because his refusal to believe in scientific fact will not and does not change the outcome of his actions-which is to contribute to global warming.

Remove all the political elements and he is still an embarrassment on a basic human level. I am ashamed that this man represents my country.

The Portuguese media pictures him a a dangerous joke...
Specially impacts Portuguese people as we are (in general) much more left-wing than U.S..

Where do you get this garbage from?   You must watch a lot of CNN.
His wiretapping claims have not been debunked, in fact, every few days - including today - more comes out to support Trump's claims.  Also, nobody apologized to the UK.. nor do they need to.  Every major country spies on every other major country.. even if they are allies.  The problem is when one's OWN country spies on it's own citizens - which is illegal, and it what Trump complained about. 

The "outdated" coal industry is far from being outdated..  and clean coal is now doing quite well.  I can actually share something about that.   Many years ago... while moving south from New York, and driving through New Jersey,  there were massive chimneys from factories billowing clouds of black smoke.  They have a lot of industry in that area, and it smelled so bad that one had to raise the windows, and hold their nose while driving past them.  A few years ago, I went through the same areas, and the factories now spew out billowing white clouds which are steam vapor, and the windows can be opened. 

Also.. Trump is reversing the obstruction of Obama - and completing the Keystone project which not only benefits the USA, but brings in $16 billion in annual revenue to Canada.   Can you say "O Canada!"

With the addition of the Keystone oil pipeline, fracking, ethanol, and clean coal.. the USA is no longer a fossil fuel importer but an exporter.  It's nice to stop financing terrorist countries with mega billions of dollars for their oil anymore.  It's also nice to not endanger the oceans with tankers full of crude oil.

Hahaha! Okay you want sources- let's talk sources. You think it's CNN? Here are just some of the sources- and none of them are CNN.
Read something other than alt-news and be better informed. Your ignorance is showing and really getting sad.

As for the wiretapping. I said the US apologized and was humiliated. Trump refused because he's just a conspiracy spouting liar. LOL! Again, no CNN here:

Speaking from the USA in our defense, please remember:

1. Trump lost the popular vote, to another candidate who was herself unpopular. If not for the anachronism of the Electoral College, Clinton would be President. (I didn't vote for her either, FWIW).

2. Trump is deeply unpopular in the USA - his approval ratings are in the mid- to upper 30% range - very low for a new president.

I've given up on trying to reason with Trump supporters. It's like they're living in a fantasy world where all his crap and his incompetence are invisible to them. But whatever, time will tell; let's see if he lasts 4 years. At least he's entertaining for now. Reading American political news these days is like watching the Kardashians: you know it's trash, you know it's a mess, you knows it's a trainwreck, but you keep watching because you know you're gonna get a good laugh or two.

There really is no other side, unfortunately. Almost no one on the planet likes him, except for his Wall Street billionaire friends who he's determined to give absurd tax cuts to and the people who drank the crazy juice. The problem is, his "fans" are so violently vocal that it's hard to hear anything over their screeching. It's like when an eschatological conspiracy theorist gets hold of a megaphone and starts yelling at strangers on the street. Unfortunately, most of his fans are undereducated, underemployed, and under the poverty line, so they have a whole lot of free time to scream their nonsense online ;3

That is a pretty accurate unbiased description of the man.

The problem we have here is "Fake news". We have propaganda machines specifically created to brainwash conservatives to vote Republican. It began with talk radio, then evolved to FOX News, and now the alt-right websites.

Originaly they were funded by the wealthy to get people to vote for politicians who cut programs for the poor and middle class and make things beter for the rich by scapegoating minorities- we will protect you from the blacks. we will protect you from the gays. we will protect you from the muslims. we will protect you from the Mexicans.

Now, they are the tool of Russia and who knows what interests to get useful idiots to vote for the destruction of the country.

I do not see much hope in the future, because these people who support Trump, or even the GOP before Trump, do not think, they just feel.

Heck, this is a GAY website. Supposedly everyone here is a gay man, yet there are GOP loyalists here. the GOP is a party that has been against every single bit of LGBT rights since Stonewall, and there are gay Republicans. Even now, the GOP wants to end sane-sex marriage, and make it legal for businesses to discriminate against gays, as long as they pretend their bigorty is religious.

For a gay person to be a republican is like a Jewish person being a nazi, or a black person being in the KKK, or a black person being a republican, or a woman being a republican, or an atheist being a republican, or a Muslim being a republican...

Wow- I couldn't agree with this more! I was just talking to some friends about how much it baffles me that there are gay men who can blind themselves to all the hatred and vitriol that the right throws at us, and they still insist on supporting the very groups that want to take away gay rights.  Huh?  I can't figure this out.


And a special shout out to wohdin for your comment using eschatological conspiracy theorist- three words that I never expected to encounter at a gay porn download site- you made my day, sir!  laugh I couldn't agree more with your sentiments as well.  Wink

"Clean coal?" lol. CO2 is still CO2 and the amount is the same. And it's this GHG that's warming up our atmosphere. Ironically, ash and other "dirty" particles can collect in the atmosphere, creating clouds, which reflect sunlight, and causing temperatures to decrease. But this cooling effect is short term while the CO2 warming effect is long term.

All of these organizations are lock-step in the mainstream narrative.  You don't actually have any diversity of sources.  All of your sources come from the liberal mainstream media and all of them show the same exact agenda and bias.  

Some crazy figure like 96% of all journalists are liberal, and all of these journalists represent the mainstream side of the coin.  Conservatives make up about half this country, yet are barely even represented.  Why do you expect to able to see the other side of the coin from any news organization when there is a vast under-representation of conservative viewpoints in the mainstream media?

"More than 90 percent of D.C. journalists vote Democratic, with an even higher number giving to Democrats or liberal-leaning political action committees, the author said."

While there are reasons why gay men would support the Republican party (mainly economic reasons) I too do not understand the fascination with wanting to see fellow gays lose rights in this country. It's almost heartbreaking and I've seen so much of it on here. I'm married and it bothers me that there are so many gays on here who would just love to see me lose that right and not be able to make important decisions that hetero spouses get to make all the time after they get married. How is it identity politics to want to have the right to have my husband listed as my husband in my will and the same with me in his? How is it identity politics to want to be able to make crucial healthcare decisions as many spouses have to do? God forbid something bad happens, and I can't make those important decisions because Republicans would have done something that causes the SCOTUS to declare same-sex marriages illegal or pass some kind of loophole legislation to undermine same-sex marriage. We all know it's only a matter of time before the Republican party falls back to the "ban the gays" stance to unite their party again once they hit those 2005-2006 level approval numbers and they got pushed out of Congress in many elections across the country. Barack Obama is gone and we're the default they used to unify their base with prior to Obama being elected. The Republicans simply cannot be trusted at this point. These are the same Republicans that fought tooth and nail against an important hate crime bill with Matthew Shepard's name on it.

Donald Trump hasn't done anything to gay people. Ifact, he hired many of them to run his hotels because "they did a good job." People were asked, what did Trump do? And they said, "He picked Mike Pence! Look at his history!" Well so what? Look at the Clinton's history, they were the ones who passed the Defense of Marriage Act. So what if Pence didn't want to force someone to bake their gay cake, that's fascism. Why would you want them to bake your cake anyway? Just go to someone who wants to so you don't get boogers in it. All Trump said was that the gay marriage thing should be a state's rights issue but since the Supreme Court already ruled on it, that's the end of it. He has never said anything negative to gay people. The idea that he's a homophobe is stupid. He's not even a Republican. He actually DESTROYED the reputations of the most prominent Republicans - such as McCain, Lindsay Graham, and Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, who were all very against gay rights and you guys wanna act like because he ran on the Republican ticket to win that he hates you. It's really stupid to me and you guys are just being retarded and don't appreciate that he actually obliterated the anti-gay Republican party. Trump has never said or done anything negative to gay people and the idea that he has is completely ridiculous. Get a life.

Ah! I was waiting for this. Yes, they are all in lockstep with the mainstream narrative. It's called JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY- and the reason that it works in lockstep for the most part is because it's based on OBSERVABLE and VERIFIABLE FACTS- you know- things like science and scientific studies- that kind of thing which is so inconvenient to alt-fact loving conservatives.

Vilifying the so-called mainstream media by claiming that they are lying is a tried and true tactic in debate called "poisoning the well". 
Here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poisoning_the_well
By telling everyone that a whopping 96% of all journalists are liberal- you expect people to just dismiss the reporting because of that? If in fact it's even true (which it's not). Historically, when fascists are threatened by the facts presented by the media- they like to discredit the media, weaken it so people don't get the facts and they can get away with whatever they want.

If you really think all the sources I cited are working together in some grand conspiracy- then that's on you. I can't force you to change your belief. But the fact remains that the US apologized to the UK- it happened and was confirmed by both sides- unless you are telling me they just staged it like the moon landings maybe?

And the fact remains that ACTUAL EXPERTS in the energy industry have confirmed that coal is NOT going to get a huge boost in job numbers NO MATTER what Trump does. For that one- time can give us the actual proof- we can look at the coal industry in say, a year- and see how many actual new jobs were created? You know, the kind of fact checking that actual journalists do?

In the end it boils down to controlling the narrative- why else do you think the bible thumping, climate-change denying, vaccine conspiracy believing  conservatives are so afraid of science? So against scientific fact and research...ask yourself why? The only reason to fear knowledge is if you know, deep down, that it is going to prove that what you believe is wrong, and people hate to admit to being wrong. Sometimes they'd rather lie to themselves first.

The claim is true - I even provided a source.  Not exactly 96% (which was just the number I recalled off the top of my head), but well over 90% of the people reporting on Trump vote democrat, and large percentages of them donate to democratic super-pacs. 

You would like to claim that journalists are liberal, because liberal ideology is more "correct".  Even if you believe this to be true, the subsequent condescension (c.f., staged moon-landings) is unnecessary and you've got to know that this kind of elitist, condescending attitude is one major reason people rebelled against the establishment, right? 

You could be correct in every single one of your espoused political beliefs, but if you actively work to shut down the opposing viewpoints  without addressing their concerns through insults, or as more and more common, physical violence, people won't listen to you.  You need to work on your delivery.  Furthermore, the mainstream media has been caught in so many disgusting lies and falsehoods; ignoring these issues and pretending that the media is an unbiased conveyance of facts and logic does your argument no service. 

Besides all this, you've missed the point -

Liberals like to talk a lot about representation, but half this country is conservative, and they are not represented in the media.  If you're talking to someone who isn't liberal, you cannot expect them to possibly believe that Trump would get a fair shake by the media elite, when the large majority of them are ideologically opposed and biased.  Just seriously try to put yourself in their shoes for just one moment.  If all the media were conservative, would you be inclined to listen and believe?

So then, if conservatives won't listen to the media, who will they listen to?  Well for starters, they'll listen to people who've made personal sacrifices to get where they are.  People like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange who are beyond reproach and have not once been caught in a lie or journalistic failing.  For example: https://twitter.com/Snowden/status/844611686682181632

And just like that, a Single tweet by someone with proven integrity carries more weight than all of the mainstream liberal media combined.
