Idiotic discussion: these journalists are talking about Trump, Clinton Nixon as if these impeachments were all equal. Clinton lied about oral sex, Nixon at least respected the rule of law -- Trump violates campaign finance laws by paying off porn stars and other infidelities. Foriegn nations bribe him by patronizing his hotels, money that goes right to Trump. He alienates our allies but cozies w Putin, a known murders of journalists and anyone who displeases him. Now he shakes down a foriegn country, threatens them like John Gotti, unless they will open a phony investigation on Biden he will withhold money for military to fight the Russians. Trump is completely different than any president or impeachment that this country has ever seen. There is no moral equivalency here.

as an adult who suffered from unspeakable acts as a child, my feeling is that if for nothing else, this mock funeral and having the kids write down what they wanted to bury, shows them someone cares, someone's listening ..and that's a start..great show

So Donald Trump can grab someone by the pussy and brag about it & Joe Biden can't hug someone/kiss them in a fatherly way but yet somehow this is equal in importance. This is snowflake journalism that gives us normals a bad name.

The piece on school lock-down drills was heartbreaking. The US is failing the next generation in so many ways, but I fear this may be doing terrible damage.

Completely looks over Canadas roll in this. Even though since Canada has detained Meng Wanzhou for the United States in China two Canadians have been detained and a Canadians how was convicted for drug trafficking was resentenced for death, in apparent retaliation. Plus the diplomat has been fired over his comments about this. I question what other stories have information missing. Wanted this to be better.

I wrote my GRE analytical essay about "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith and Run DMC in 2003. This story really brought me back.

what i got form the maga repor is that the media is not going to take its time to gather all the facts before reporting. so we have to get used to it that they will report with without all the facts too outrageous and get clicks
