Overall, I think they're generally objective and fair. Unlike the three networks, they call it like it is instead of tiptoeing around Trump and his administration's alternate facts and manipulations.
If Trump News...oh, sorry, I mean, Fox News can be the official propaganda arm of Donald J. Trump, I think CNN can lean just a little toward the "CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!" side once in a while.
Conversion therapy is proven ineffective, dangerous, and harmful. The damage that has been done by these people who claim that homosexuality is mutable, but heterosexuality is not. They base their assumptions on multiple fallacies but refuse any factual data from over a half century of scientific study which shows that homosexuality is as fixed (or mutable) as heterosexuality, and is a natural sexual variant, no less healthy as any other.
Prove that conversion therapy works, Guy. There are dozens of studies and thousands of personal testimonies that it doesn't work. The science is against you...the testimonies are against you, including those of eminent leaders of the conversion movement who insist it didn't work for them! There is no proof that it works because it doesn't. Give it up.
Why don't you shut your ignorant mouth for a change. You might hear something other than the hot air coming out of your pie hole, and learn something. Studies show that gay men don't molest children anymore than anyone else. But that doesn't align with your sick agenda.
Trump is a bully--cyber or otherwise. His major "negotiation" technique is to puff up like a blowfish by making threats or expansive comments to get the upper hand, then be conciliatory later on to make it seem that he and his demands are more reasonable than previously presented.
People say that his Twitter attacks are him fighting back at his opponents and the media, but often he isn't attacked first--he may not even be involved but injects himself anyway. The President of the United States is a world leader, but he gets into Twitter wars with people over the littlest things because his feelings are hurt; he acts like a child, not the Chief Executive of the United States.
The First Lady's efforts are laudable, but her husband's actions are the antithesis of the core of her work. Until her husband shows he can personify cyber responsibility, the import of her message is diminished because she looks like a hypocrite. It's not fair to her because she's not herself cyberbullying, but it starts at home.
The RCC's history of cloistered secrecy, requirement for priests to be celibate and holier than average men, and the Church's instinct to close ranks to protect it's own, heedless of the damage it does to the victims of abuse, perpetuates serial sexual abuse. All of these (and any other) factors that add to an abusive and cover-up culture need to be changed; otherwise, it won't get better.
The RCC needs to come into the 21st century and act scientifically with a strong emphasis on psychology. Are Church authorities willing to do everything needed to fix the problem or will they continue to make disingenuous apologies and make payments to victims after the fact?
Being a critic of the POTUS is not a reason to revoke a former CIA chief's security clearance; not one member of the intelligence community has come out in favor of this move, nor has a member of Congress, Republican or Democrat. Trump continues to show that he wants to have ultimate control over what information is available to everyone--the public, the intelligence community, and the press. This is the move of a burgeoning autocrat, and Republicans' complacency will allow him to grab power until it's too late. This is why it's imperative for everyone who values democracy to vote Republicans out in November so we can put the checks and balances back in our three pillars of Federal Government.
He might lose some support among his least fervent followers if tapes of him using a racial slur were proven, but the majority of his base won't care or will make excuses for him as they always do. Most people know this about him already, and most of his remaining supporters are racists whether they acknowledge it or not.
Trump's policies, behavior, and the Republican Congress's refusal to challenge him in anyway have helped swing the pendulum in the opposite direction, but we Democrats can't get cocky or take anything for granted. We need to make sure we ALL get out and vote as a united party. We also need to do all we can to get undecided and moderates to vote Democratic too. We can't leave anything to chance. This has to be the best mid-term turnout in modern history for Democrats and Progressives.
Still no proof of these illusory 3+million illegals! Not that Trump supporters need things like facts to get in the way of them believing everything that comes out of Trump's mouth--alternative facts, alternative reality.
