You said Obama decided to do something because Congress did not.

What sort of thing should we/he have expected Congress to do when it comes to the issue?

No, I do believe a very strong anti-American agenda exists in the little pinkie culture-club known as MSM.  And they wield power almost beyond full comprehension.

For instance, they get to invent a single word to blanket an issue (think "Dreamers" for example in these current events) and from that moment forward it shall be referred to by that description.  Everything becomes filtered through a word of their carefully-determined choice.  And then the weakest among us link their logic to it, and it spreads like cancer.

Very nasty, very deceptive, very manipulative little bastards, they are in MSM, playing with our society while joyfully doing the same thing with their dicks, no doubt.

Not cool, man.  Not acceptable.  We can't have this.

Absolute truth.

DACA was a direct result of Congress failing to do something about this group of undocumented immigrants

Reminder: The press really wanted Hillary Clinton to be president
by Becket Adams | Sep 5, 2017

Hillary Clinton's supporters love to complain that the press torpedoed her White House ambitions 2016.

What utter nonsense.

First, as noted by my colleague Eddie Scarry, if Clinton lost the 2016 election because of negative press coverage, then how did Donald Trump win? He had 15 solid months of bad press. No one – left, center or right – can argue the press went easy on the Queens businessman. If elections were determined by which candidate had the rosier press coverage, then we'd be saying "Madam President" today.

Secondly, when it came to which candidate the press obviously preferred in 2016, Clinton was the hands-down winner. This isn't opinion or conjecture. This is a matter of record!

By Nov. 6, 2016, just two days before Election Day, an astonishing 57 newspapers had already endorsed Clinton for president. Trump, on the other hand, had exactly two (t-w-o) endorsements.

As if that weren't impressive enough, Clinton also overshadowed Trump when it came to political donations from the media. The margin wasn't even close.

Through August of last year, members of all classes of media, including journalists, editors, news anchors, etc., had donated roughly $382,000 to Clinton's election efforts, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis released in October 2016.

In contrast, Trump had netted only about $14,000 in donations from members of the press.


Putting things more simply, a whopping 96 percent of all journalism-related donations went to Clinton, according to the report. Trump got the scraps.

We don't bring any of this up to twist the knife or pour salt in not-yet-healed wounds. Rather, this is a direct response to Clinton superfan Peter Daou, who launched a supposed fact-checking website this weekend.

The site itself, Verrit, is ... whatever. Clinton fans need something to do.

The thing that begs for a response here is when he tweeted this weekend, "I founded [Verrit] because Hillary Clinton's voters – an inspiringly diverse coalition – are unrepresented in the media."

Unrepresented? There are certainly specific demographic issues that newsrooms are struggling to address, but the idea that the Clinton coalition didn't get a fair shake last year is preposterous. The industry almost entirely comprises people who saw her as the much better option for president.

Clinton got their endorsements, their money and (likely) their votes. What more does Daou want?

Do you know if it's that they wouldn't have citizenship anywhere else, if not for DACA?  Or how that works? (Anyone?)

I suppose not, though, or we'd have heard about it with this story (endlessly, I'm sure).

I'm trying to figure out how a person in that situation is being deprived without something like DACA.  Absolutely NO offense to anyone, I do have a heart, and I understand this is about individuals who were brought here as minors.

Study: 91 Percent of Trump News Coverage Over Summer Was Negative
Sep 12, 2017 // 9:21pm
As seen on The Five

Over the past three months, evening news coverage of President Donald Trump on the main broadcast stations was 91 percent negative, according to a new Media Research Center study.

By the end of August, the MRC said, nearly 40 percent of coverage during the nightly news on ABC, NBC and CBS was about the Trump White House or the administration.

Comparatively, President Barack Obama received about ten percent of broadcast news coverage.

The top four Trump related topics discussed over the past three months were the Russia investigation 27 percent of the time, the failure to repeal ObamaCare, the handling of the North Korea situation and Trump's controversial response to Charlottesville.

Greg Gutfeld reacted to the study, agreeing that there has been "more favorable [press] coverage of scurvy."

"Trump is a one-man-band generating money and outrage - rather, money for the outrage."

Watch more above.

September News Coverage of Trump Administration 92 Percent Negative
By Jason Devaney   |   Thursday, 05 Oct 2017

The negative coverage of President Donald Trump and his administration continued in September, with a new report showing just 8 percent of the coverage was positive.

The Media Research Center (MRC) study found that 92 percent of the coverage on the three major networks' nightly newscasts was negative. That was slightly higher than the 90 percent negative coverage the MRC claims the administration has received since Inauguration Day in January.

Other findings from the MRC's September report:

The six topics most discussed on the news were North Korea, immigration, Trump's response to the three hurricanes that hit the U.S. and its territories, Trump's comments regarding the NFL's national anthem controversy, the GOP's Obamacare repeal efforts, and the controversy regarding several members of the cabinet using private and/or military jets.

News stories about repealing and replacing Obamacare and the aforementioned private jets saga were 100 percent negative.

Stories about immigration, which included talk about the planned end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, were 96 percent negative.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6cv-6WuDK0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6cv-6WuDK0</a>

Late-night comedian Seth Meyers has had enough of Donald Trump supporters, asking his viewers to “choose” between the President and his show; ultimately telling GOP voters to “go away” before throwing up a middle-finger towards the camera.

Meyers began his rant by praising rapper Eminem’s four-minute long anti-Trump tirade at the BET Hip Hop Music Awards earlier this week, saying he was “inspired” by the musician’s vicious attacks on the Commander-in-Chief.

“[Eminem] ended the video by calling on any of his fans who still support Donald Trump to decide between Trump and himself,” said Meyers.

“I was inspired by that,” he added. “So, tonight I would say to any fans of this show who are also big fans of Donald Trump: It’s time to make a decision guys. Get off the fence. Do you support him or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him?”

“I know it’s a tough call, but it’s time to make a decision. Now, I’m not much of a rapper but here it goes,” said the late-night comedian.

“My name is Seth and I’m here to say, that if you like Trump then go away,” he rapped, before flipping off Trump voters who hadn’t already changed the channel.

Protecting one of their own.  Shameful.

Tucker: NBC News President Should Be Fired For Refusing to Run Weinstein Story
Oct 12, 2017 // 8:38pm
As seen on Tucker Carlson Tonight

Tucker Carlson said NBC News president Noah Oppenheim should resign or be fired immediately for punting on reporting Ronan Farrow's explosive story on Harvey Weinstein.

Oppenheim said there was good reason to kill the story, and instead added that he provided resources to Farrow who then shopped the story to the New Yorker, according to Carlson.

"Let's be clear," Carlson said. "NBC is lying."

He listed several claims by Oppenheim he said were untrue.

Oppenheim said Farrow was given resources, but it turned out he wasn't given even a camera crew.

Despite claims Farrow hadn't completed the bulk of his story when he brought it to NBC executives, Carlson said the story was all but complete when he went to the New Yorker.

Carlson credited MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow with going ahead and interviewing Farrow despite reported warnings against the segment.

"This is a scandal and the truth has a way of emerging," he said.

He said Oppenheim is also a Hollywood screenwriter with deep ties to the Democratic Party and Hollywood establishments.

Carlson said Oppenheim should disclose any ties to The Weinstein Company or Harvey Weinstein.

Bias: 1,000 Minutes for Trump/Russia 'Collusion' vs. 20 Seconds for Hillary/Russia Scandal
By Rich Noyes | October 25, 2017

Here’s one top takeaway from network news coverage in 2017: Sneaky Russian influence in American politics is a huge story if it involves Republicans/Donald Trump, but a non-story if it involves Democrats/Hillary Clinton.

MRC analysts have been tracking all evening news coverage of the Trump administration since Inauguration Day. From Inauguration Day, January 20, through last Friday, October 20, these broadcasts have aired an astonishing 1,000 minutes of coverage discussing Russia’s attempt to boost Trump in 2016, and speculation that Trump’s campaign may have colluded with the Russians in this project.

Last week, The Hill published new information about Russian efforts to infiltrate the American uranium industry, including $31.3 million in payments to the Clinton Foundation, as well as a huge speaking fee delivered to Bill Clinton personally, while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. In eight days, the network evening news coverage of this story amount to a mere 20 seconds on ABC’s World News Tonight.

According to an October 22 story by The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann, FBI agents “were surprised by the timing and size of a $500,000 check that a Kremlin-linked bank provided Bill Clinton with for a single speech in the summer of 2010. The payday came just weeks after Hillary Clinton helped arrange for American executives to travel to Moscow to support Putin’s efforts to build his own country’s version of Silicon Valley, agents said.”

According to the same article: “‘There is not one shred of doubt from the evidence that we had that the Russians had set their sights on Hillary Clinton’s circle, because she was the quarterback of the Obama-Russian reset strategy and the assumed successor to Obama as president,’ said a source familiar with the FBI’s evidence at the time, speaking only on condition of anonymity, because he was not authorized to speak to the news media.”

Imagine $500,000 in Russian money being paid for a speech delivered by Donald Trump or a member of his family. But Bill Clinton’s big payday has generated ZERO network news coverage this week, and only a single reference on ABC’s This Week back in 2015, when the book Clinton Cash first disclosed the potential scandal.

In fact, from April 2015 through last night, the Clinton/Uranium/Russia story has been granted only 3 minutes, 21 seconds of evening news coverage — less than one-half of one percent of the coverage doled out just this year to the conspiracy theories surrounding Trump and Russia.

ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News have been the most intensive, churning out 350 minutes and 381 minutes of evening news coverage of the Trump/Russia story, respectively, while the NBC Nightly News aired a relatively restrained 269 minutes of coverage since January 20. (Note: These statistics include weekend broadcasts, when aired in the Washington D.C. area.)

Combined, the three evening newscasts have aired a total of 5,015 minutes of coverage of the Trump administration since Inauguration Day, which means the Russia story alone has comprised almost exactly one-fifth of all Trump news this year.

There’s no conclusive proof that the Clintons traded favors in exchange for all of the cash going their way, but there’s no proof that Trump and his campaign team did anything wrong vis a vis Russia, either — yet the media have made it their business to keep the cloud of suspicion over Trump and his presidency.

Now that they have a chance to be equally zealous in applying the same standard to a Democrat, it’s obvious that much of the media’s interest in the Trump/Russia story has less to do with Russia’s attempts to infiltrate our government and politics, and more to with a partisan news agenda.

ABC reporter who had major error in Trump report will no longer cover stories on president: Report
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 12/5/17 | Caitlin Yilek
Posted on 12/5/2017, 2:26:28 PM by ColdOne

CNN reported Monday that Ross, who has been suspended without pay for four weeks, will no longer be allowed to cover stories related to the president.

ABC News president James Goldston told staffers, in audio of a call obtained by CNN, that the network’s and Ross’ credibility have been damaged over the mistake.

"I don't think ever in my career have I felt more rage and disappointment and frustration that I felt through this weekend and through the last half of Friday," Goldston said.

Media bias continues: 90% of Trump coverage in last three months has been negative, study says
Major broadcast news reports in September, October and November were hostile
By Jennifer Harper - The Washington Times - Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The working relationship between President Trump and the news media shows no signs of improving. Journalists continue to appear aggressively hostile toward the president, according to research released Tuesday by the Media Research Center, a conservative press watchdog.

The new study of major broadcast coverage reveals that 90 percent of statements made by reporters and nonpartisan sources the last three months on ABC, NBC and CBS evening newscasts about Mr. Trump and his administration were negative.

It’s all in the numbers. The analysts found 1,123 out of 1,228 statements made about the president on the “Big Three” news networks during September, October and November were critical of Mr. Trump. Only 105 of the statements were considered positive in tone or content.

“As the Media Research Center has been documenting all year, the media have approached the Trump presidency with unrelenting hostility,” wrote Rich Noyes, director of research for the organization, which has found evidence of liberal bias against the White House in previous research this year.

“Even as the media whine about about Trump, their hostile coverage shows no let up. Our study of news in June, July and August found an identical rate of 91 percent negative coverage — which means TV news is unchanged in its hostility toward the president,” Mr. Noyes said.
