    I don't see media bias here.

    I see media bias in the TV news channels' wall to wall coverage of Trump.

    Any sensible person can see that Trump is a mentally unstable egomaniac who speaks in superlatives and is totally unsuitable for any public office.

    The crowd response to Trump's speeches makes me think of the Nativeist movement (the Know-Nothings) of the 1850's.

    In fact the whole Republican crew reminds me of the advocates of Manifest Destiny who were also active in the mid 1800's.

    It seems to me the people who want to leave if they don't get their way, or their candidate, are all talk. Anyway. There were quite a few famous folks promising that they'd leave the country if GWB was reelected. They never left. Ho hum. They were just, you know, practicing free speech.

    Bias? Yes, in that, if anybody said they would leave the US if obama was reelected they were branded a RACIST.
