    I wonder why it took so long; maybe CNN wanted to gather enough hard evidence first.

    The media is part of the problem.

    Sorry, I'm not for everything the Dems propose.
    But they're not even close to what the GOP is doing.

    There's a difference.
    one is sometimes incorrect and incompetent
    the other is actively being aggressive and dangerous.

    The media AND many leaders need to call out BAD actions and words.
    Clearly and strong. And repeat it.

    Do make it a flaming controversy.
    Because it IS.

    I would say the same if the Dems did it. (and they DID, back in the early 1900's and late 1800's)

    Fair and balanced is actually pointing out when one side is being unfair and unbalanced.
    Stop false equivalency.

    ABC’s David Muir Interrupts Chris Christie, Who Compares 2020 Claims to 2000 Election: ‘There Isn’t a Real Equivalency’

    This is what the media needs to again & again...call out BS.

    I don't want "fair". I want facts and I want truth.
    And DO the investigation DIG
    That is what media should do.
    Legit news outlets.

    Fox can take a flying leap off a high bridge.
    They're part of why we're here. They have muddied the water and they're supporting those who supported the coup and even now instigate fraud further.

    I mean the other news, the ones that try to be legit.
    Just do it correct. Have integrity.
    Call the bullshit.

    I would love to see this more often.

    George Stephanopoulos outshouting Rand Paul was a beautiful thing to see.

    Opinion | A plea to the media: Stop regurgitating anonymous GOP attacks — The Washington Post

    Yes.
    The media needs to stop being a part of the problem.
    Make people accountable.

    Stop the false equivalence.
    Stop bending the story to make a horse race.

    Stop the “if it bleeds, it leads” mindset.

    Yellow journalism needs to croak.

    We have a VERY serious crisis here.
    And if too many get away with it.
    They might not HAVE a newspaper to print.
    At least what it wants.

    AKA Russia or China scenario.
