Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 17, 2018

It's no secret that liberals and leftists have long made up their minds that President Donald Trump is a flaming racist. It's also no secret that the far left like to consider themselves the bastions of tolerance and enlightened thinking. Unfortunately for that anti-Trump crowd, a video posted online debunks much of their rhetoric in stunning fashion.

Conservative Tribune is a Fake News site. Get this crap outta here, Bozo.

Analysis / Bias

The Conservative Tribune displays extreme right wing/conservative bias through the use a strongly loaded emotional wording such as this "Scalise Digs Up Obama Dirt, Uses It To Completely Destroy Trump's Russia Critics." The CT sources their information either through videos, tweets and occasionally factually mixed sources such as the Daily Wire. Story selection always favors the right while denigrating the left.

A factual search reveals numerous failed fact checks.

Website wrongly says Obama plans to take $3,000 from every American – Mostly False
What Obama Just Did to the White House Logo – False
Did a Law Professor Claim the 2017 Solar Eclipse is ‘Racist'? – False
‘Animal Brothels' Open in Germany as Migrant Population Hits 22 Percent? – False
Conservative Tribune post falsely claims cancelled Arctic research cruise is evidence against climate change – False
These failed fact checks are a small sample of the dozen plus from IFCN Fact Checkers.

Overall, we rate the Conservative Tribune Questionable based on extreme right wing bias and numerous failed fact checks. (7/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 7/26/2018)

Even you, Boaz, should recognize that this is crapola.

I figured everything in the video would be deceptive and out of context.

"I heard... black people can't figure out how to get to the DMV" he said, to a black man in a big city just blocks away from a DMV.

Has nothing to do with Republicans closing down DMV's in rural areas.

You're right. It is good that people like Devos are in control right now because the college campus kangaroo courts that Obama created under title IX were an abomination and violated any notion of due process.

She wasn't nominated to be a teacher. She ended the Kangaroo Courts that the previous administration established with a "dear colleague" letter. That by itself is a good thing.

9 of the top 10 highly rated governors, as polled by the residents of their states, are Republicans.

I agree that the GOP sucks pretty bad at the federal level (as does the Democratic Party) but at the state level they are currently performing much better than their Democratic counterparts, at least as measured by the people whom they directly represent.

Not always. In many cases it's not "throw money at it" but it's "maybe we should spend less on this to spend more on that".

In any case, I'm not on board with the new crop of "progressive" candidates who are trying to sell free everything with an argument that's eerily similar to trickle down economics.

9 of the top 10 highly rated governors, as polled by the residents of their states, are Republicans.

Were they also governors elected by significant majorities of Republican residents? Because to that I'd say "no duh".

Also, with the number of states with an R governor that's the statistically most likely outcome.

According to this list, 6 of the ten worst are also Repubs...

at least as measured by the people whom they directly represent.

Well, we might finally see some trickle down that works. As the crappy GOP governance at the national level dries out federal funds, red states that float their ideological model on federal dollars largely soaked from blue states will feel the pinch the most.

As economics is the largest driver of how people view the current direction and status of the country at large, the GOP is likely shooting themselves in the foot.

But then again, there is the reliable stupidity and gullibility of the GOP base to fall back on so...

It's the closest comparison I can find in terms of geography, demographics and a stark difference of governing philosophy actually implemented. The 2 states have so much in common and have so much NOT in common politically. The dynamic between the two is the very democracy-experiment our founders envisioned.
