LOL --- run and hide. We understand.
What's the issue. I tried reading one of your posts and you were all over the place.
Restate your case.
My point was very simple ---- if I was all over the place, it's because I was following Charwin - and Lord knows where he wanders to.
Charwin rejected a poster's input because of its source - not because of its content. I simply told him that was intellectually lazy. He, in order to avoid having to actually discuss the issue, immediately rejected any sourced counter-argument based on its source.
While the source may cause you to look closer, rather than accept it at face value, you cannot reject an input based solely on source. It is incumbent upon you to discredit the CONTENT.
All the rest? That was Charwin wiggling since he had been hoisted on his own petard.
Doesn't Trump take anything reported by the mainstream media and immediately dismiss it, by calling it "fake news"
Trump also called national intelligence reports "fake news".
Where do you stand on Trumps doing what you accuse Charwin of. Show your position on the principle.
Answer to your questions, in order ....
A specific statement about a specific instance co-opted by the media to be a general statement.
Since Trump doesn't do what Charwin did, i think I've been clear on my position.
Trump dismisses every mainstream media source, right to their faces, refusing to even answer their questions. Charwin only dismissed certain sources known to be biased.
How is Trumps universal denial, not like Charwins selective denial?
"Wiretap" by proxy, that is a new one.
A made up term to try to make it look like they were going after Trump.
Interesting things about wiretaps, if the person being tapped is talking to someone that is NOT on the wiretap warrant, they have to hang up as soon as they know.
Yes, so A Dump's paranoia remains.
Yup, I'm sure the Obama administration always followed the rules.
