Barron Trump is 6' 5" and just turned 15. Wonder if he can play hoops.

As promised, the hatchet jobs are in full swing against Desantis. 60 minutes just did their dirtiest and is surprisingly getting railed for it. Democrat palm beach mayor is going as far as saying that it wasn’t just bad reporting, it was blatant lies.
The editing they did was as just flat out fraud. Cherry picking segments, ignoring facts that went against the narrative they wanted to push.

Where is Juggs saying both sides do this?

But yes, it seemed very cherry picked.

Federal prosecutors have requested an emergency stay to prevent the release of Capitol defendant Jack Wade Whitton, who was arrested last week after he was identified as the Trump fan captured on film dragging a D.C. police officer by the neck down the steps of the Capitol and into a violent mob.
Hugging and kissing him all the way.

But love him and leave him

In related brainwashed terrorist cult news...
Three months after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol to try to overturn his November election loss, about half of Republicans believe the siege was largely a non-violent protest or was the handiwork of left-wing activists “trying to make Trump look bad,” a new Reuters/Ipsos poll has found.

Six in 10 Republicans also believe the false claim put out by Trump that November’s presidential election “was stolen” from him due to widespread voter fraud, and the same proportion of Republicans think he should run again in 2024, the March 30-31 poll showed.

This one is heavily skewed towards the D's....they own basically all of MSM. Fox News from what little I've seen does it to a small extent, but they really don't need to. The stuff they choose to cover, the liberals already do a good enough job of saying stupid shit that the Fox watchers are going to hate, so they really don't need to be misleading on anything. Just say "Look how stupid this is!" and that's good enough for the viewers.

it seems so obvious to anyone who lives in Florida that Publix makes sense to give vaccines: its highly trusted and there are locations everywhere.

If I lived in Florida I'd actually already have my vaccine vs. here.

Publix is part of our emergency response team, 60 minutes chose to ignore it. CVS and Walgreens were vaccinating assisted living facilities before Publix got their first dose. It was a blatant hit piece, they just put everybody on notice that he is a major threat to the socialist party.

the number of negative stories about Desantis vs. Cuomo, who is credibly accused of really horrible stuff, by the msm, is amazing.

yeah this is the danger of media bias - people see something like this is a complete lie, it leads to lack of trust and turns some to conspiracy sites.

Agreed. It’s lying and selectively reporting less on a governor who did genuinely harmful things

DeSantis must have the progs really worried about 2024, and as you point out, it helps to take the attention off Gov. Corleone of NY.

It sure seemed to me like the Cuomo thing dominated the MSM for a couple of weeks. There were other things happening in the world at the time to, but you guys make it out as if it was completely ignored. It wasn't.

And BTW, the Biden admin is also been fact checked quite often by the MSM. How much fact checking of the Trump admin was done by Fox?

Denver, I haven't heard you condemn the 60 minutes hit piece, does that mean you think its ok? And when they are fact checking it's always "he must have been thinking about these numbers etc...." Not he lied. And yes, I know Trump made stuff up as he went, but they are fact correcting for Biden

That would be good to know. Certainly 60 minutes had a choice of governors Covid responses and their choice is interesting

Um, I said: "But yes, it seemed very cherry picked."

Without actually being able to watch the whole 60 minutes piece because I was busy with other things, and not being there it's hard to say except from articles like this.
New York (CNN Business)"60 Minutes" is facing backlash for a story it aired Sunday on Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis — including from the supermarket chain Publix and two prominent Democrats in the state.

As part of a larger story about Florida's vaccine rollout, the renowned newsmagazine program spotlighted a recent $100,000 donation that Publix made to DeSantis' re-election bid.
The story, by correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi, suggested there was a possible link between the donation and the state's partnership with Publix stores for vaccine distribution — a serious issue of foul play, if true.
But, beyond spotlighting the public finance records, "60 Minutes" never offered any substantive evidence to support the significant assertion and link the donation with the partnership.
After the report aired, the Democratic director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management and Democratic county mayor of Palm Beach County both publicly responded, saying that partnering with Publix was not suggested by anyone from DeSantis' office.
Which was linked from CNN's front page. The evil MSM.

So yes, it seems to me like 60 minutes f-d up this time.

And BTW, speaking of misleading reporting, from FOX:
Colorado voting laws are similar to Georgia's despite decision to move Major League Baseball All-Star Game
And if you read the article, they have some lame comparisons with absentee voting, but put this little tidbit at the end of the article.
Colorado also automatically sends absentee ballots to all registered voters, whereas Georgia only sends to those who request them, a measure meant to prevent sending ballots to the wrong address or to those no longer eligible to vote.
As if Colorado somehow has this problem with ineligible voters. Audits have shown it does not. And those aren't absentee ballots, they're ballots sent to "all registered voters". We have drop off boxes everywhere. We don't stand in lines in significant numbers to vote, like they do in Georgia. That stopped years ago and elections run very smoothly here.

Did they start with criticism of the story, or are they reacting to other reports of it? Do you see there is a difference?

Can you point to specifics other than what you quoted? It's a very short article with mostly quotes. It seems like they are reporting information. They could have probably dug in and looked to see how frequently voter roles are purged. I would guess Colorado does it more frequently because they send them to all registered voters. It's a political football in purging voting records in many states, and is very difficult to do in many instances. I guess they could have explained that better. And it probably would have helped the story in that Georgia, like Florida would show a ton of incorrect addresses and other voter role issues.
