Obama and the media's ability to tell the truth
« on: October 04, 2022, 01:26:18 PM »
Was it Obama that allowed the media not to be prosecuted if they told lies?

It wasn't said like I just did in blunt terms, but from what I understand, I could be wrong, but sometime in the past if the media lied they could be held fully accountable.

Something was passed or removed that allowed them to get away with BS?

Cheers,
Craig

I think its much older than the OhBummer era, if I understand how its done in the US, its based off a rubbery criteria of if the reporter thinks the source was OK, then its OK. (We are not responsible for the content, we used the source in good faith).  :tongue:

At least they can speak almost freely.
Don't have to be afraid of jail, if opinion differs from goverment.
In some countries aren't alloved to speak truth.
May the source be with you

Trump's lies: About 181,000,000 results

More specifically, with phrase search: "Trump's lies" : "Obama's lies" = 32:1 :cool:

Interesting, which search engine?
Didn't Italy get a new PM? What do you think of her?

I would be interested in your opinion.

I am not sure that a search engine set of statistics would tell you much about the difference in support between OhBummer and Trump.

OhBummer and Big Mike, kind of fits, I'm sure one fits the other. :biggrin:

Yea, I was thinking it was a google stat.

It has been shown countless times that the search engines like google, bing, Duckduckgo have been compromised. Anything that doesn't fit with the leftist agenda is filtered out.

Actually, I was watching a way to bypass a lot of the filtering using a Raspberry Pi as a DNS server. It is a bit to set up, but you would get less biased results. I just need to find it again.

Google. On Bing, it's 6:1. Unfortunately, DuckDuckGo doesn't reveal the #hits.

A friend of mine knows her personally, and he says she has three main interests: 1. herself, 2. herself, 3. herself. He also says she is exceptionally dumb. The fact that she has no university degree wouldn't bother me, but she is as much a populist a*hole as Salvini. Did I forget to mention that she's a fascist?

That is probably going for her, at least she is not a WEF clone.
