“He would rather call the boss of reporters who report what is really happening and have them threatened into toeing the party line.”
Have you heard? There’s a news channel that doesn’t toe the party line…well, not the Democratic Party line, that is. It’s called “Fox News”, and they will be happy to provide as much dirt on the Obama administration as you want. No sycophants there, until the occupant of the White House is a Republican.
As to Ukraine, I agree it’s unfortunate that we don’t hear much about it, but there is news if you look. Biggest issue there is that the sanctions are working, and Russia is starting to suffer as a result, especially losing money from its oil industry. This makes them more of a paper tiger, and also has Putin’s enemies licking their chops as his popularity and power reduce as a result. You’re welcome.
Interestingly, we don’t hear about how many Americans get shot at work, at school, in front of their homes, either, not even on Fox. Care to start a conspiracy theory on that one? Who’s in cahoots with whom to keep this off our radar?
