so, while it may have been on every channel back in the 70s, your media intake was 3 channels, the national and local newspapers, and possibly one AM radio station, depending on what city you lived in.

compared to today, the media blitz from then was minuscule.
let me explain my viewpoint it this way... I know all about Texas and Texans because I read the Internet and watch the news....You and I know much of it is just opinion often from those who have been there....A proliferation of news does not make it better or more truthful, in fact it can greatly increase the risk of false information and subjective opinion presented as fact....
To be trutful, I never watch news on TV, I do listen to PBS briefly in the morning to get their take on it, most of my info comes from the catch all Drudge Reports, National Review and Red State And of course right here on PBB, the absolute pinnacle of truth...

I think Pelosi was goaded into this for fear of losing her position in the house.

what the fuck? Didn't Biden ACTUALLY threaten to withhold money unless his son was appointed? No one gave a shit about HIM doing it because he isn't the President or what? This is bullshit.

No,he threatened to withhold the money if the person who was investigating the company that his son was "working" for wasn't fired.

This is a media impeachment. Thats it. The dems do not want to take a vote because the dems in purple districts think it will hurt them getting re-elected so they do not want their names attached to anything so hopefully they can ride the fence to victory again. They just want to continue with all the damaging parts of the impeachment process to continue to bash trump to hopefully damage him before the election. Formal impeachment inquiry is something pelosi made up to make the dem voters think they are doing something. I'm pretty sure that they knew trump would not cooperate and that would give them more headlines like the ones you are seeing. Trying to make trump look guilty. Trump doubled down and said if you want to impeach me then do it right and lets get this show on the road.

Lets get the formal impeachment going. No bullshit no more made up terms. The rules are black and white. If trump did something wrong them impeach. If he didn't them stop with all the bullshit and maybe do your f'n jobs.

I' pretty sure this impeachment bullshit would stop if the costs were taken out of congressional budgets instead of a never ending supply of our money they can waste.

Once again, President Trump is not going to collude with the enemy, as he didn't during these past 2+ years.

RESIST President Trump, RESIST!!!

Man if Screwy was here, we'd be having a grand time!

We really need a SUPER-Troll, not these asshole wannabees!!

Yeah. That. So you can't (don't) impeach the Vice President for what you initiate impeachment of the president for.

It's the job of the right leaning media to jump on the Democrats...They do a decent job, try switching to the National Review or the slightly more radical Red State, there's many others...I am just slightly right of center and avoid all the mainstream news including Fox...And never watch the news on TV...

I get ya, but I haven't watched world/nightly news in years, it's beyond biased to their agenda, but you can't completely escape it.

At my age I just want the government to get out of my life , and the media to just be honest and unbiased for a change.

I know it's a pipe dream, but one could hope.

You missed my point that Pelosi or Schiff can't do it by themselves behind closed doors like they are trying to at the moment, they need the whole house to vote to proceed.

Is that what it said???

I would think the last word would be “valid”. Or “not” shouldn’t be in there.

Obviously the Democrats want Trump removed from office by any means..My opinion is the Democrats and supporters are hoping that the GOP, true to their form,will bark but have no bite, and the Dems will be able to continue the shit they doing now ...Trump will rant and rave as he does, and either say enough to get him in real trouble, have a stroke, or resign...A bloodless coup..Don't laugh, it is possible...Landslide may call them Dumbocrats but they are relentless in their mission to gain control of the gov't...

Saw a deal that said Gowdy is not a defense attorney, but a Prosecutor. One with a very good record. i hope thats the case. Gowdy is one of the few good ones.
