ANY source that I site is biased.  Even conservative sources.  And I'm supposed to take serious the sources used in rebuttal from conspiracy sites that most people have never heard of.

It seems the left has a need to discredit sources instead of data.  I generally look at an article before I decide if it's biased.


For example, when an article starts with "Texas Landowners oppose wall" than goes on to refer to one mini-landowner, I suspect they are being less than honest.


Or an article that cites data that stops 2 years ago when more recent data contradicts the conclusions/opinions they are trying to present,  I suspect they are being less than honest.


Or when an article relies on faulty logic like "The problem is decreasing, so no action is required", I suspect they are being less than  honest.


When an article uses verifiable data from a public source, I may verify that the data they've presented is accurate,  but I'll generally at least take the time to consider the ideas, conclusions and assume they are honestly trying to make a case.

Sounds like a real first world problem.

joj,

I just sited for you 4 different sources that are claiming that Trump is manufacturing this current crisis, that reported the same situation, as being a crisis........during the Obama administration:

Washington Post, CNN, Huffpost, ABC


I also included an interview and story from the OBAMA border chief........who is 100%(his verbiage) behind Trumps agenda on the wall and the reasoning. 

What else do you need???

Or maybe we should just assume that you have already made your conclusions on this topic?

Mike,

I guess I missed the part where Obama shut down the government over Border Security.

Was THAT in any of the links you sent me?

I guess I am missing your pointless.   


Are you saying Obama never shut down the government?   That's false.


Are you saying Obama et.al. never said we had a border crisis?   That's false.


Are you saying that since Obama never shut down the government over the border proves he didn't think we had a border crisis?  That's specious at best.

Thanks joj, now you're understanding the situation. This is why the crisis still exists. We finally have a president that's addressing it with the actions that he promised with his campaign platform.

If Obama had done something, we wouldn't be here.
