... I'm asking you a question if you think it's credible...

I do not post things I don't think, with a reasonable certainty, are credible.

Unfortunately, we have no clue whether any word out our President's mouth is credible.

Then why do you post I dismissed the article "out of hand". That's pure speculation from your side and secondly far from the truth.

WaPo: The president shat himself
White House: The President would never shit himself
Trump: I SHAT MYSELF ON PURPOSE

This, every day.

That has become a paid site. There is no way I am going to finance fake news.

Just because the media is biased against Trump does not mean that they are wrong. Maybe they know him better than you do.  :)

Besides, wouldn't we all be a little suspicious of the press if it was NOT critical of those in power? When I hear politicians complain about the media being against them, it makes me suspect that they are doing a good job. The media is not the marketing department of the people in power.

According to mediabiasfactcheck.com

HEAT STREET



RIGHT BIAS

These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Heat Street is a conservative opinion and commentary website. Launched in February 2016, the website is headed by British writer and former politician Louise Mensch. It is owned by News Corp under Dow Jones & Company. This source has a right wing bias through wording and story selection. Heat Street was also one of the sources Donald Trump quoted for his debunked claim that his phone was wiretapped by Obama.

Source: http://heatst.com/

In actuality, the original source is a better source to look at...

News Coverage of Donald Trump’s First 100 Days

Quote
The report is based on an analysis of news reports in the print editions of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post, the main newscasts of CBS, CNN, Fox News, and NBC, and three European news outlets (The UK’s Financial Times and BBC, and Germany’s ARD).

Findings include:

President Trump dominated media coverage in the outlets and programs analyzed, with Trump being the topic of 41 percent of all news stories—three times the amount of coverage received by previous presidents. He was also the featured speaker in nearly two-thirds of his coverage.

Republican voices accounted for 80 percent of what newsmakers said about the Trump presidency, compared to only 6 percent for Democrats and 3 percent for those involved in anti-Trump protests.

European reporters were more likely than American journalists to directly question Trump’s fitness for office.

Trump has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency, without a single major topic where Trump’s coverage, on balance, was more positive than negative, setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president.

Fox was the only news outlet in the study that came close to giving Trump positive coverage overall, however, there was variation in the tone of Fox’s coverage depending on the topic.

And some conclusions...

Quote
Have the mainstream media covered Trump in a fair and balanced way? That question cannot be answered definitively in the absence of an agreed-upon version of “reality” against which to compare Trump’s coverage. Any such assessment would also have to weigh the news media’s preference for the negative, a tendency in place long before Trump became president. Given that tendency, the fact that Trump has received more negative coverage than his predecessor is hardly surprising. The early days of his presidency have been marked by far more missteps and miss-hits, often self-inflicted, than any presidency in memory, perhaps ever.

What’s truly atypical about Trump’s coverage is that it’s sharply negative despite the fact that he’s the source of nearly two-thirds of the sound bites surrounding his coverage. Typically, newsmakers and groups complain that their media narrative is negative because they’re not given a chance to speak for themselves. Over the past decade, U.S. coverage of Muslims has been more than 75 percent negative. And Muslims have had little chance to tell their side of the story. Muslims account for less than 5 percent of the voices heard in news reports about Islam.[31] So why is Trump’s coverage so negative even though he does most of the talking? The fact is, he’s been on the defensive during most of his 100 days in office, trying to put the best face possible on executive orders, legislative initiatives, appointments, and other undertakings that have gone bad. Even Fox has not been able to save him from what analyst David Gergen called the “’worst 100 days we’ve ever seen.”[32]

So, just because it's negative doesn't mean it's wrong...and if Trump would just shut his mouth (and quite tweeting) the number of negative stories would go down.

BTW, Heat Street is to the right of Fox and just to the left of Breitbart. Pretty charts though Slobodan :~)

At least this is funny!

TIME MAGAZINE RIPS OFF MAD MAGAZINE?

Quote
Once More, With Stealing Dept.

In 1952, Time Magazine called MAD “a short lived, satirical pulp.” Now they’re stealing our material! Honestly, we’re flattered, but we would have appreciated a credit — something like, “Idea stolen from MAD, which in 1952 we called a short lived satirical pulp!”

Looks Like The President Copied His Speech From Elle Woods

Quote
“The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon listened to President Donald Trump’s latest commencement address at the Liberty University and thought he heard something familiar — specifically, throwbacks to the famous 2001 comedy “Legally Blonde.”

Trump's speech was pretty reminiscent of Elle Woods' (Reese Witherspoon) address to her law school classmates at graduation.

“I watched Trump’s commencement speech, and it sounded kind of familiar,” the late-night host said, before playing a combination of clips from the billionaire baron’s address simultaneously with Woods' speech to her graduating class at the Harvard University.

The video highlighting common words and sentences showed Elle's famous line:
"It is with passion, courage, conviction, and most importantly, have faith in yourself. We did it!"

Followed by Trump’s recent address:
"It is with passion, courage and your convictions, and most importantly, be true to yourself. I did it!" he said.
