I live on the west coast and we don't get to control the whole country.

Neither should the large city centers of America control the urban areas.
If you look at a whole country election map by county it is a sea of red with small pockets of blue.
Cut out every major population center over 100,000 and the map would be solid red.

Jim Acosta on CNN just said that there are "serious questions" about the validity of Donald Trump's presidency. WTF?

Was there any alleged voting irregularity? Was he not born here? Is the Electoral College not legit? Exactly how is Trump not a legitimate President elect? Just becasue the media and snowflake millennials are unhappy about it?

Upon what did Acosta base these comments?

I agree you. It's ridiculous.

He was covering Trump's arrival in D.C. and how it might go between Obama and Trump and what the protesters are tapping into.

Well then he's a jackwagon.

There is nothing illegitimate about Trump getting elected.

Well his follow-up was that there are legitimate line of inquiry by media in that regard, particularly as pertains to Russian involvement. If I can find a clip, I'll post it.

If only the media had been half as vigilant or conscientious about Clinton.

I certainly hope he's not suggesting we should greet a Trump presidency with skepticism simply because of the leaked emails. The people voted. The votes were legitimate. That's that.

If the media wants to run stories about Russia and hacking, that's fine. But let's not cross the line into "Trump is illegitimate" because of it, or the next 4 years is going to suck.

"Let the pink slips start flying for establishment media"

Perhaps a bit of reorganization will occur, methods appropriate for the new game that is becoming a national tsunami. Other ways will be found to spin and be obtuse.

I think the American citizens have got plenty 'hip' to the outright manipulation of the media. And with that, the media has a steep uphill to regain any trust or appearance of integrity.

I agree, my lord how much I agree, finally all the [b]"conspiracies against established media", came to the light, we didn't not lie when we keep telling that they were all bought and sold.

We have been vindicated, the truth have set us fee.

Is not such thing as America independent media anymore.

Rachel Maddow comparing the institutional threats of Trump Presidency to nuclear annihilation that must be defended against with activism and protest.

And we wonder why there are protests and tears?

This is not "News". Yet, millions of millennials get their news (and apparently marching orders) from her. I like her, she is very smart and often correct but she should seriously use her powers for good and not social destabilization at such a delicate interval in our nation. And MSNBC should not give her opinion a platform couched as News. Same thing could be said for Sean Hannity.

And as a moderator/user on here since 2009 you must of seen how "new media" works and always pushes for the middle ground with no bias and with 100% facts.

We have got to a point where bs is posted by the minute, absolute crap is made in to threads on here and the people jump in to the circle jerk with full force leaving any critical thinking at the door. Why the site motto is still "deny ignorance" when the user base has been ignoring that for years now.

What? No.


Hillary DID win the popular vote. She lost the electoral college. The people spoke, but the system won.

My point was, it has nothing to do with this thread. However, to address your point, the system worked AND the people won.

There is more than one way to measure the people than just by counting.

The votes are still being counted and CNN have projected Trump will win the popular vote when its finished.

Okay. But, the people who opposed Trump, and the issues that he ran on, whose numbers ARE the majority, haven't lost their voice because their candidate didn't win. Nor should they remain silent when they perceive their civil rights being threatened. Would you want them to?

I just came from CNN, to fact check your claim, and they maintain no such prediction, that I can find. Although there are still some absentee ballots to count, they admit, they have made no projection that Donald Trump will surpass Clinton in the popular vote.

Hillary Clinton lost the election but is winning the popular vote

I'm not saying that it can't happen. I'm saying that CNN is not predicting it.

The media continuous propaganda is the legacy of Obama...I cancelled my newspaper subscriptions almost 8 years ago and never renewed. I cut the cable cord when the propaganda was still seeping into my living room. Without mainstream media and their constant pro-Obama/Clinton and anti-white propaganda, I'm much happier and will never believe what the US media says again.

More of them did vote Trump, on a per-state basis.

Which is how it works.

Neither candidate was trying to win the popular vote. If they had been, Trump would have campaigned heavily in heavily populated, Democratic strongholds like California. The popular vote would look totally different than it looks now, with neither candidate trying to drive it up.

Doesn't change the fact that the same questions weren't asked of the other candidate, but I'm sure you will keep defending the media and the establishment, the election is over, hopefully we can get some real topics to discuss.
