    CNN isn't even trying to hide their contemptible bias against Trump by asking his lawyer, who is a well-known liberal and former Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, "Just who's side are you on"?

    Wow.

    Journalism was my minor in college. This is such a huge nono.

    Toobin comes across as clueless in that debate. He's accusing Dershowitz of being a partisan...when in fact the real partisan in that discussion is him! Dershowitz has been consistent in his viewpoint on the issue...it hasn't changed because one party controlled the White House and another didn't. Could the same be said of Toobin's views? The man makes his living by being a mouthpiece for the liberal prospective on CNN! You can't get much more partisan if you tried!

    Technically we don't have a free press anymore.....they are owned by the Democrat Party and their donors.

    Alan uses the "shoe on the other foot test" and I think it's one everyone should use. The Golden Rule, empathy for others, whatever the case may be. Most importantly, even if you hate someone, they deserve Due Process, and, fair and equal opportunity to a defense. You have to be blind to your own biases. Even the worst human deserves this.

    Without this, there is no Western civilization as we see it today. We'd all be working in camps somewhere and given our rations for the day. Without an objective, honest, by-the-books assessment of power and law, you will quickly become Canada or the UK. You want to know why people are destroyed in these nations? I'm living proof of this, it's as diabolical as you could write it in a fiction novel. Worse, these nations are able to convince some of your leaders that "we are just like you". I hope you're waking up.

    All that is worth living for depends on civil liberty. Capitalism goes hand in hand with it. It's why America creates while socialists steal.

    What's with the question asking if he's getting paid? The other day Jay Sekulow was asked a question about being paid.

    It's a fair question in my eyes, it's designed to suggest bias. As if Hollywood actors and musicians aren't paid as they go on the campaign trail with politicians. They will tell you they are giving their endorsement. Not that it matters in 2020, it hurts those who try this, but, it's never questioned.

    Paid or not paid, he is a lawyer and defends your Constitution. That should be the role of all lawyers.
