Mass Shootings is the biggest one that stands out to me. There have been a few, but it seems like it was getting to be a weekly thing right before Trump was elected.

Other "Fear Instilling" types of news stories seem to be on the decrease as well. The news seems very slow outside of political stories.

Did stuff stop happening or is the news just focused on Trump 24/7 and not reporting anything else?
The DS funding for 'special FF public control projects' and Project Mockingbird is drying up.

Basically, the Old Bush CIA (and his adopted pretend presidents Clinton/obama) are being ejected from the equation.
But every day I have to hear about how Trump being president is fearful enough for the majority of Americans Facepalm Wanker

I have to wonder of everyone was so bored with life that they were going out and doing crazy things, then came along Trump and they had a clear target to focus their rage and obsession on?  Like the collective conscious of all the crazies is just obsessing over him right now?  I don't know, maybe something to that.

Chuckle The dems have nobody - they should've spend the last couple years grooming a candidate, but instead they just jumped on the Trump train

Who's going to be him?
Kamala Harris? She will get destroyed by Trump in a debate
Bernie? I'll be surprised if he doesn't have a heart attack by the election, and no body over the age of 25 will vote for a socialist asshole who owns multiple properties
Joe Biden? I'm sure Trump will be able to dig up MUCH dirt on this pedo easily
Elizabeth Warren? She was caught lying repeatedly, Trump would destroy her in any debate

But I know where you're coming from, each of these candidates are VERY dangerous for America in their own way

It seems like Trump makes the news outlets a shit load of $$, so they piggie back on him to get views.

Actually, they are going broke...hence the mergers and the major 6 corps that we used to have becoming 2/3 now.

Over 1,000 'journalists' from places like HuffingtonPost, WAPO, NYTs, New Yorker, AP, Buzzfeed have been let go.

The 20 million that was funded by the last administration towards negative news stories about President Trump, has all dried up and President Trump completely stopped the use of Tax Payer funds towards the media.

Hundreds of 'newspapers' across the country are closing shop.

CNN is rating lower than the Hallmark Channel...not belittling the Hallmark Channel, but seriously, that must really sting for CNN who was supposed to be THE worlds news...how far they have fallen from grace! And MSMBC is the laughing stock with their psychopathic 'the sky is falling' anchors.

But in their stupidity and sheer desperation to stay relevant, they ignore that fact that they are the minority...they would have known this had they not made a collective decision to turn off their comments sections a few years back. And now they are reaping the sharp end of the Reapers Scythe.

CNN is rating lower than the Hallmark Channel...

My Wife is keeping that channel afloat. She watches every damn movie and cries. It is the same story over and over, just a bit different each time in a different setting. My 5 year old cries when she turns it on now.
