Its kind of deranged how a thread about the media that lies turns into a pathetic Trump argument.
Lets go back a bit for sanity purposes.
Iraq and WMDS,The Gulf of Tonkin....I could go on and on.

The media rarely lie, at least mainstream media. They may have misleading headlines, but when you actually read the stories you will rarely find lies there, except when it comes to the war on white people and pushing Islam.

It’s dangerous that many believe the Presidents fake news smear, and a little worrying so many mods here agree with Potus
The Qult are dangerous

This isn't a left vs right idea, but it will be interesting to see how the "my team vs. your team" players will deal with this.
Being lied to sucks no matter who is doing the lying.

Interesting how so many will cling to the media all because it confirms their own bias.
People would rather hear a lie they like over a fact they don't like.

Trump has made 4000+ false or misleading statements since taking office.
“Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn’t matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!”
That one alone he used 110 times!
The term “collusion” is defined as “concerted activity toward a common purpose.” The colloquial connotation of the word indicates that people who “collude” have worked together, usually in secret, to do something illegal. Still, other than in an antitrust context, “collusion” is not the name of a crime. (In antitrust law, two product sellers who conspire to set the price for goods may be guilty of “collusion,” but that is obviously not relevant here.) Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy recently wrote that “collusion is a hopelessly vague term.” There is no federal law that criminalizes collusion between a political campaign and foreign government. Even though “colluding” with a foreign government, especially one as hostile as the Russian government may be inappropriate or politically damaging, it’s not illegal. In this sense, collusion is viewed as a political term and not a legal term. As a result, Trump Jr, Manafort, and Kushner could not be prosecuted under a charge called “collusion.”
