Deplatforming FOX?

     Words fail me:

     Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are demanding to know why Fox News did not publish a story prior to the 2016 election about an alleged affair years before between porn star Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump.

     House Committee on Oversight and Reform chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) wrote to former Fox News reporter Diana Falzone last month demanding that she turn over any documents relating to Trump’s alleged extramarital affairs.

     An article in the New Yorker last month alleged that Fox News executive Ken LaCorte spiked the story to protect Trump — a claim LaCorte has vehemently denied, saying the story lacked corroborating evidence and that the network was merely practicing responsible journalism, as were other outlets who declined the story.

     Anyone with three functioning brain cells already knew that Cummings is a shameless partisan whore unacquainted with truth and uninterested in justice, but this is a new low-water-mark even for him. Can you imagine the outrage from the Left were a Republican-controlled body to make a similar demand of CNN or MSNBC?

     There is no infamy to which Cummings will not stoop if it offers him a chance to silence an opponent or create a problem for a Republican. And the clincher is this: he’s not alone in his venality. Schiff, Swalwell, and others of the Democrat caucus are just as bad, though I can’t say any of them are worse.

     If Cummings isn’t ejected from office, there’s no justice in politics…and sad to say, owing to racially motivated district definition, he’ll be in Congress until he dies or retires. I hope to outlive him, as I plan to piss on his grave. He calls to mind Hilaire Belloc’s quatrain:

Here richly, with ridiculous display,
The Politician's corpse was laid away.
While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged
I wept: for I had longed to see him hanged.

Francis - if you'll indulge me I'll quote from something I posted (I won't share the link as the quote contains everything):


"For a charge of hypocrisy to work to restrain someone or pull them back, they must be able to be shamed in front of people about whom they care and whose opinions they respect. This is why the charge sticks to people on the Right… and why it doesn’t on the Left. Because if you’re on the Left you only care about the opinions of your fellow Borgleft Collective members who are, universally, on the same page as you, want power as much as you do, and share your belief in your intellectual & moral superiority. Leftists don’t care that you’ve got double-standards so long as you are advancing the cause of creating a Socialist paradise on earth, so you won’t care about charges of hypocrisy by anyone to the Right of Stalin – because Conservatives are the enemy anyway.

"We can point out their hypocrisies and double-standards until we are hoarse; while it’s important to have “for the record” it won’t matter in shaming or deterring them. They don’t care about our opinions in the slightest."

That is because they don't care what they say. It is done to create the irritation that garners reaction and publicity. What if we did not acknowledge it, or Trump quit twatter it would all go away.

You wrote, " If Cummings isn’t ejected from office..." C'mon man, true dat this POS is a scummy, lowlife, race pimp but he's waaaay back from the front of that line.
