internally at who knew about this, because it is implausible to believe that this sort of thing just "slipped through the cracks" with the internal vetting etc. There were 2 separate yearbooks - from college and then from med school which had racist stuff, and after the Kavanaugh hearings, they all knew the can of worms they had opened with yearbooks.

Dems should have gotten a list of 65 black folks to sign a letter that Northam isn't racist.

Meanwhile, Republicans still aren't calling for Steven King to resign after he endorsed white supremacy.

Glad to see how selective you guys are when calling out racism.

effort involving implausible, over the top accusations that only the already indoctrinated would use to confirm their feelings further....and it involved only a few hundred thousand dollars from reports i had read. Further, there is evidence that trump had anything to do with it. Further, there is evidence that Russia was behind some of the Resistance rallies after Trump was elected as well.

There is no question that the russians have been doing this stuff in our elections for a while. And, in fact, so have we. Putin was mad at Hillary when she stuck her nose in his politics while SoS. Also, Obama actively sent political advisor and financial resources to Israel to try to defeat Netenyahu.

But there is NO evidence that DJT was involved. There IS evidence that Hillary and the Obama DOJ were involved with Russia in the creation, dissemination, and use of the Dossier to attack Trump however.

So to your question, yes it is possible in some widespread, effective cases, but no, it was not the case here.

If Mueller was worth anything, he would investigate the DOJ and the Dossier which was used to aid in getting a FISA on Trump. But he didn't recuse himself over his close friendship professionally and personally with a principal in the investigation (Comey), and he hired a team of radical liberal goons. He hired a guy like Weisman with a history of SCOTUS rebuke on previous cases and he raids old men in their homes at 5 AM. i don't expect he will do his job here.

never see more on it. The airport is just one example, but it does represent CNN's largest group of viewers- a captured audience. Most people don't follw news like we do.

This was not something that was going to change the overall result, but it was a move to mitigate damage - esp among the faithful. Particularly the AA comunites whom they don't want to notice this, the job numbers, and the question trump asked them....after all of thes years of supporting the Dems with no improvement, what have you got to lose?"
that quote by trump sent shivers down the spine of the Dem party leadership.

Name one time when a CNN mistake hurt Dems and helped R's. Every one of the many recurrent "mistakes" by the apparently mistake-prone CNN is harmful to conservatives and /or helpful to liberals. Every one. Show me otherwise. The odds are hugely stacked in your favor with my challenge since CNN may still have 100 "mistakes" hurting conservatives, but all you have to do is find an actual mistake of theirs that went the other way, and you will win.

Committing and bragging about multiple crimes is worse than the photo.

I think the guy should resign as should Orange have as a candidate when the tape came out.

You, on the other hand, will castigate Norty while trying to come up with some tortured Jesuitical defense as to why he should resign, but Trump shouldn’t have.
