    I didn't think that bit would be completed next week... he reapplied for a 6 month extension for the grand jury just last month. Plus there are still a few more indictments to hand out.

    Funny how he is always defending sex offenders.

    The Gender Pay Gap

    I don't think you'd make too much off of me. I would tell you what i need, give you facts as to why i would need it and grow dismayed that you don't take the facts and reasons why I need this and then move on to the next salesperson who takes facts into consideration.

    Thank goodness... I would hate to see Manafort get free without serving his time.

    The Gender Pay Gap

    My Goodness KFB- I had no clue you were that self-aware, good on you. Now just go through and check out EO's posts as they are chalk full of facts and examples. If you are as self-aware about your confirmation bias and are as open minded as you claim to be, EO's facts and examples may convince you. He makes some solid points. .

    Confirmation bias. Or the inability to think logically.

    I think this makes sense to people who don't dismiss anything that doesn't fit their narrative or people who's rational thought is not hijack by thier personal confirmation bias.

    The Gender Pay Gap

    I agree. EO brought up some solid facts and a very striking argument (hats off to EO). The LAwsuit comment was very valid as was the NHS fact. Nice to see someone provide facts instead of feelings and "I do/don't see, therefore it can/can't be true" rhetoric.

    DOn't, just don't- there is no reasoning with that. You did excellent in supporting your argument, just leave it at that. Some people just don't understand or really care about facts. You did well- leave it at that, otherwise you will be touching crazy.

    The Gender Pay Gap

    Eternal Optimist has provided considerably more facts than you have. He has also taken the time to painstakingly explain the difference of gender pay discrimination, which is illegal, and the wage gap. Just because you refuse to listen to them doesn't make him wrong.

    You don't know what it is yet you are calling going there disgusting? either you do or you don't know what a white nationalist is... you can't have it both ways. Wow... this kinda sums up your view on politics. Ignore the 20% rise in actual hate crimes and focus on the 0.2% hoaxes. Cuz hoaxes are where the problem lies... C'mon- you gotta be trolling at this point.

    I don't think anyone is scared of anything posted in this thread. Well. maybe one. indicated through psychological projection. Not true- not every "contrary opinion is dismissed as alt-right. Statements that smack of white supremacy, use language of the alt-right and supports ideals popular with the alt-right movement- those are immediately dismissed as "alt-right". No one is labeled immediately, there is always a lengthy and consistent history behind that label- I have never seen any pop-in, make a quick comment and be labeled immediately, ( riderfans are the lone exception). WHat you are peddling here is untrue. This is a **** statement- no one here is told to dismiss all information as "crap" and "garbage": they usually come to these conclusions on their own, through experience, research and sometimes interactions. I dismiss fox as a very right slanted, opinion riddled talking heads trying to blur the lines of real journalism and right wing propaganda- because I have watched it, I have done the research and I came to these conclusions on my own, not because AOC told me rupert Murdoch is evil... I have no idea what you are trying to convey here with this statement and this tweet.... it's like you are making a statement and then completely undermining that statement....

    So let me get this straight... you berate me for fact checking and source checking articles people throw at me. Then you proceed to berate people who fall for the fake news media all the time and being fooled a HUNDRED times! How does one even reconcile that thought process? then you parrot trump's coined phrases of the altleft and sad/ Do you even know you are using trumpisms? or are you just well-indoctrinated into the alt-right speak?

    If there was a "national outrage" over the dubious incident, it was limited to gullible left-wing journalists, celebrities, politicians, and activists. The "narrative" only seemed "cut-and-dry" to people who were looking at the case through lenses clouded by their anti-Trump bias. It seemed made up to those of us who noticed that Smollett's allegations were outlandish, implausible, and riddled with inconsistencies from the get-go. Yet even as his story started falling apart (which happened almost immediately), the national media clung to their precious narrative. There's been much commentary in the past few days about the MSM's lack of critical thinking skills in covering not only the Jussie Smollett "hate crime" fairy tale, but a number of other bogus stories as well. Over the years, the MSM has fallen for hundreds of hate crime hoaxes, reporting on them as if they were confirmed facts, rather than mere allegations. By the time the story is proven to be a hoax, the media has already moved on to the next manufactured outrage. This phenomenon has only increased since the election of President Trump. Yet people still expressed shock and surprise when it became obvious that Smollett had staged his own hate crime. But fake hate crimes aren't the only type of bogus story the MSM routinely falls for. In the past two years the national media has also rushed to embrace the phony Steele dossier, a multitude of fake Deep State leaks on the Trump/Russia probe that turned out to be spectacularly wrong, the outlandish Kavanaugh smears, and the Covington smears. PJ Media's own Roger Simon called the media's propensity for believing the unbelievable "magical thinking." Another possible explanation for the media's gullibility would be confirmation bias, which is defined as "the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses." The overwhelmingly liberal media tend to embrace stories that confirm their own biases and ignore those that don't. https://pjmedia.com/trending/why-does-the-msm-keep-falling-for-obvious-hoaxes/ This is just sad.. https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/pj-media/
