    This is objective news media?

    It is so refreshing to see badass Trumpster doing controversial things to swcbags like Fox, Lindsey Grahamy and other tools.

    The GOP and media outlets like faux news should not be able to hand pick their selection for potus.

    Lets the bring back the fairness doctrine as well as let the people decide on their nominee.

    Yeah, after watching Fox news tonight, it was pretty clear they were off the Rubio train, and on the Trump train.

    Fox is on their 3rd or 4th candidate, clearly they aren't doing a very good job of hand picking a candidate.

    Anyways the media is already picking the candidates simply by deciding who to cover. Trump gets by far the most media coverage among GOP candidates and he's winning, and Hillary gets the most coverage among Dem candidates and she's winning.

    One train they've never been on is the Cruz train which almost makes me want him to be nominated, just to see heads explode. If only he wasn't a $#@!ty candidate.
    Authoritarianism and neoconservatism cannot be made great again.
    Trump was an enemy of Ron Paul, before he was an enemy of Rand Paul, before he was an enemy of the Freedom Caucus.
    One thing that he has remained consistent in is his hate of liberty and those who promote it.

    FOX News? No, its the FOX Political Superpac.
    And its about time the Fox Superpac gives up on Rubio.

    in 2013 during which the Florida senator successfully lobbied the Fox News chief to throw his support behind the "Gang of 8" comprehensive immigration-reform bill.
    "Roger hates seeing his name in print," a longtime Ailes associate told me. "He was appalled the dinner was reported," the source said.
    and
    Fox's corporate support of Rubio has also been a growing source of tension with the network's more conservative talent.
    Sean Hannity was furious that the
    Times article reported how he went along with Rubio's immigration proposal.
    During an interview with Trump on Monday, Hannity barely defended Fox while Trump trashed Rubio backers.
    "He shouldn't be on the air," Trump said. The best Hannity could muster was to change the subject.

    Turning one trick right after the other. FoxNews. Gotta love it.

    I read an article a few days ago that Rubio met with Murdoch and Ailes just before releasing the Gang of Eight amnesty package, asking FOX to provide him cover when the bill came out. Murdoch and Ailes agreed and told all their hosts to tone down their discussion of the bill. Another example of how the government owned news media works. Luckily, I believe the sheeple are finally catching on.
