Re: New online news channel starting.

Eh, there's always PBS and the BBC. Those are pretty much down the middle and not normally tinged with biased commentary. Heck, the CBC is pretty good too - you even get those hard hitting stories like when a cow wanders onto the road in Prince Edward Island. Fascinating stuff, and without bias.

Re: The Republican Base

One of Nixon's signature successes was China which in hindsight has not turned out so well. Standing up to China is a major positive for Trump's administration IMO. Like standing up to China, Trump's successes weren't just economic. As AZ has suggested, remove the Twitter-happy sociopathic narcissi...

Now you're being naive.
