    I think there is alot of truth to this, they were playing in an echo chamber, putting out what they wanted to hear and listening to those that agreed with them:

    None of which would have had a issue platform, (not media platform), if not for the MSM. If the media had stuck with the 'facts' there would have been no reason for the interest groups. That's for both sides.

    Well unless I missed a memo, I have a right to post what I wish. Now you of course, have the right to ignor the post, this holds for each and every poster, whether they start a post or are reading them. That is certainly something that has been hashed out.

    Back to the topic.

    There are elections coming up next year, it will be interesting to note whether or not the media has learned anything from what occurred in the last one.

    Sometimes it is nice to revisit the scene of Victory, especially a victory handed to you by the inappropriate use by your enemies of their most valuable weapon.
