Ah -- no. If it's the notion of the left "probably" eating its own -- I'm not seeing that.

Seems like it would be a conservative's wet dream.

Oh well. I guess I'll have to listen to the podcasts etc.

BTW -- you don't have to play coy with me. If you you know what you're talking about -- just say it.

Oh I missed this.

Of course -- the "government" or more accurately democrats (or mostly) don't do anything about or acknowledge black on black violence because of their part in creating the morass.

OK.

So along those lines, it's obvious that the liberally biased media would sidestep this for roughly the same reasons.

So what's your point? I was talking about conservative talk radio.

Now youíre confusing me.

Okay. Conservative talk radio is not talking about it because these people involved have little or no political power and they are shooting at each other. As soon as they start shooting at the right in a way that canít be written off as the minority lunatic fringe the conservatives will align and shoot back.

The conservative fringe or alt-right, or whatever you want to call them are talking about this, but they have little access to anything resembling mainstream media. So we donít hear about it.

That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Limbaugh and Hannity absolutely LOVE the topic of liberal indoctrination on college campuses -- it's a great way to discredit liberal ideology in general -- and this is about as extreme as it gets.

And of course, it potentially translates into power when you consider a candidate like Bernie Sanders.

The other thing is, I don't listen to Limbaugh and Hannity every single day. Neither of them do "segments" and just move on.

They both hammer on things day after day -- but there's a good chance I've just missed it -- so this whole line of conversation may be pointless.

But itís about a group of SJWís (radicals) against an extremely well spoken, intelligent, and reasonable liberal. Someone who would not play well as a libtard. Tucker Carlson had him on and he doesnít really fit their narrative.

Have you actually listened to conservative talk radio?

They NEVER have on intelligent liberal guests. Limbaugh doesn't have guests period. And if Hannity has a guest who is remotely liberal -- he just talks and yells over them and they can't get in a word edgewise.

So they would just take a story like this and create there own narrative -- and that would be very easy to do.

Also, over the course of the Trump administration, conservative talk radio has moved closer and closer to the platform of the alt right. You'd be hard pressed to see a difference on an issue like this as compared to Brightbart etc.

BTW -- do think it matters to the FOX news audience if a liberal guest doesn't play well?

I've seen Tucker Carlson get his ass kicked plenty of times by liberals -- and yet there he is, night after night.

It just doesn't matter.

I donít mean he doesnít play well with others, as in, heís tough or combative. Heís not. Heís just reasonable. Heís the kind of guy a lot of moderate conservatives or moderates of any stripe could get behind.

Him getting too much media coverage is probably bad for both sides.

I knew what you meant -- play well to the audience.

Doesn't matter. FOX, talk radio, Brietbart etc. they just go with a story like this and put their own spin on it.

Their whole way of presenting the news -- they feel no obligation to include the people who are involved unless it suits them -- so there's practically no way this story could be bad for them.

And really, the same is true for the liberal media. And this isn't anything new. Look at the old Mike Wallace era 60 Minutes -- even if they had interviews with people who had to defend themselves, they edited the shit out of it.

Having a guest -- or not -- means absolutely nothing if a media outlet is determined to tell a story a certain way.

And this is getting old -- you're just cherry picking the comments you can argue with.

Not even sure what started this -- my assessment that this wasn't a big story inthe conservative media?

That's just my impression -- I'm not even sure it's true.

Heh yeah. I knew something like that was coming.

Ever heard the expression you can't bullshit a bullshitter?

Maybe you're just having an off night.

The other possibility is that this is a comparatively complicated story with several layers -- and there are plenty of other stories out there that promote a particular agenda that are much, much easier to digest.

Like them football players who don't respect the flag and our national anthem!

Iíd agree with that. Itís complicated and Weinstein also doesnít seem like the kind of guy to let it be boiled down to a couple of sound bites, easily. He wants to get the truth out there, but, the whole truth. And yeah, thereís much easier meat to get.

I think he just did Tucker Carlson in the heat of the crisis. Maybe he felt like his side of the story was being buried by the libs. I know most of the press coverage was disparaging about him until he started speaking out. Heís now done a bunch of long-form podcasts and interviews.
