I’ve given up on this thread

Labour has been consigned to the dustbins - and looking at their candidates for their next leader, they’ve clearly not learnt their lessons.

We’re leaving the EU. (Not sure exactly how this will still pan out but my guess is a no deal exit in October/November 2020)

The EU will probably continue to slowly break up with countries like France, Netherlands, Italy (maybe not now since the EU just replaced their government with pro-EU puppets in true democratic style) and Sweden etc demanding referendums.

Trump is winning. Will be acquitted in the sham trial.

Trump will be re-elected against one of the no-name America haters he’ll be up against.

Judge RBG will probably die within the next 4-5 years, leaving Trump the chance to elect ANOTHER ‘conservative’ judge and therefore changing the future of America for a very long time.

You lost, Socialists.

I do think you are right that socialism is dead.

I feel progressives and centrists like me have lost too.

While fptp and a right wing billionaire owned media persist we will continue to be held to ransom by a far right libertarian minority.

That was my curtain call.

Edit: call it ‘utter nonsense’ but can’t refute any of it right?

Catch ya after the US elections.

You again fail to see reality.

The media is actually mainly backed up by left wing billionaires.

The "far right minority" is actually the common sense voting public and the majority of people who are waking up to media lies. That's why every pole is wrong, why Twitter is wrong, why mainstream media is wrong about every vote or decision.

You are so isolated from reality in your bubble you completely fail to see this. It's really interesting.

None of them are right wing, they're opporunists who are whatever it takes to make more money. For billionaires that actually try to influence public debate look at Soros, funds antifa and the like.

So anyway you're seriously arguing that CNN, MSNBC, BBC, ABC, ABC Australia, Al Jazeera, and just about every media outlet except Fox News report right wing bias content?

Rigggghhhhhhht. Yeeaaaaaaah. CNN and all above media outlets are right wing propaganda machines that constantly spout pro Trump propaganda and praise the conservative agenda, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.. riiiiiiiiiggggghhhhhhhttttttttttttttt Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

So, so, so even though Murdoch owns Fox and CNN, you think he has an editorial voice? Two different voices? Interesting.

Answer the question you fucking deluded idiot

I really don't know why I'm engaging this but; there's a difference between being right-wing and pro-Trump. McCain wasn't a big Trump fan, still right-wing. Plenty of Tory voters don't love Boris and Trump yet still vote Tory and are still very much right-wing. CNN criticising Trump doesn't make them left-wing - the ideology that they promote is still right-wing.

You can still be a right-wing news source without being genuine Pravda level state propaganda like Fox, especially when they have the same owner. It's about a monopoly creating a semblance of balanced discourse, which dictates the middle ground. Between CNN and Fox is the 'palatable' medium of still right-wing politics that Murdoch is comfortable with allowing. Just like Tony Blair etc.

Really? So I guess CNN apply the same scrutiny to Hillary and Obama that they did to Trump? Because CNN are actually right wing? Riiiiiigggggghhhhhhhhhtttt. ooooooooooooooooooooookaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy.Roll Eyes

What state owns Fox?? I know the State owns ABC Australia but they spew left wing anti government propaganda all day.

especially when they have the same owner. It's about a monopoly creating a semblance of balanced discourse, which dictates the middle ground. Between CNN and Fox is the 'palatable' medium of still right-wing politics that Murdoch is comfortable with allowing. Just like Tony Blair etc.

Have you actually ever seen MSNBC or CNN or BBC or Al Jazeera or ABC Australia or the American mainstream networks? Or are you just told by your uni lecturers that all media is right wing and accept that?

Fact is most news media in the West is clearly, by far and inarguably incredibly biased in favour of left wing causes, climate change, anti trump, pro celebrity, etc etc.

It's so amazing you and your kind can just keep denying basic facts like this.

Watch any of the stations I told you about for an hour and see how right wing they are. They are not, they are annoyingly left wing at all times. You can watch them all online easily. Seriously, open your eyes and see reality, what your saying is just a left wing talking point you've been told to parrot and you are completely brainwashed and can't see simple facts but I know I'm talking to a zombie so don't expect to get through.

No of course the owners of the daily mail aren't right wing, nor the telegraph. Sure dude bloody lefties all of them.

And then we start to get to your real views….tell us more about your views on Soros.

I guess it's to be expected from an incel

Seemed like the bbc journalists really went to town on Friday.
Great job by them. These interviews will forever be documented and used as examples for the British public. 100-200 years from now they’ll be used as reference in history lessons.

I would have loved that job, rounding up the idiots for their opinion.
