For sure @WSJ knew he'll publish vile, dangerous conspiracy theories, lies, and worse incite his base to violence, as he did in January 6. Why they allowed it? They were afraid that he'll sue them? Free speech must have its limits too. If you, or I, or even other politician would want to publish "opinion", they'll reject us. THIS MUST STOP! Thank you Amee for speaking up.

"....which is something that has eroded the integrity of every publication that allowed itself to be used by him."

"used by him", a perfect description of the relationship between Donald Trump and the press.

Matt Yglesias once suggested that maybe Trump wasn't the smartest guy but, compared to the reporters that covered him, he was a genius (<-not a quote).

As Les Moonves said, "Maybe Trump is bad for the country, but he's great for CBS" (<-legit, he said that).

If America is strung up by this group of criminals then CNN, NBC, ABC, numerous print publications, NYT, WSJ, WaPo etc, many fame grubbing journos, Haberman, Todd, Stephanopoulos etc. - will all own a piece of the rope used to do it.

In many ways the election was rigged. Time magazine ran an extensive article bragging about it in February 2021. That’s before you consider the very sketchy election night vote dumping.

No one has explained the lie about the pipe burst that never was in Atlanta, where the PA voted cake from, or the numerous out of state voters in AZ (snd that’s just a few examples).

Most court cases were dismissed for lack of standing, not evidence. The ones that have gone to court have been split, with victories for Trump’s legal team in more than half the cases.

There are still unanswered questions that show pre-planning - why did Fulton county order so many mail-in ballots days before the election? Why were observers blocked in exactly the same way, using exactly the same strategy, in so many locations? Why such differences in the PA canvas v votes counted? How did 25,000 nursing home residents vote in WI when a family member was the only one legally allowed to vote and they were banned from seeing their loved ones?

You are not an investigative journalist…….

You don’t counter the points with evidence. You counter with negative opinions about those who disagree with you.

Is that global rise in all cause mortality in highly vaccinated countries, even when excluding Covid deaths, also “fake news”?

Congrats on toting The Party line. Go get your booster and a new subscriber.

You have issues.

I'd like to know "where the PA voted cake from" because I never got any cake and, using your own words, "you counter with negative opinions from those who disagree with you," you comment lacks any sources of record (not NewsMax etc.) for any of the claims you make. And right-wing folks deliberately (or perhaps ignorantly) misread Molly Ball's lengthy article in Time magazine, and I quote directly from that article: "They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures."

To use a quote from a very funny movie: "Ms NCmom, what you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Not to be rude, but what colour is the sky in your world?
