FACT: Getting valid ID is burdensome for millions of Americans. They're just not millionaires like George Will.

From the October 17 edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Brett Baier:

+Keith Savage No, George F Will is a tool of the far right, but at least he's a literate tool. He's actually a quite good writer - go read him ripping the GOP a new one for supporting Trump recently:

It's not that people don't like him. It's that viewers can't trust a single thing he says to be honest.

The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple called out CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker for skirting the issue of hiring former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski by offering a dishonest defense of the decision. CNN hired the Republican presidential nominee’s former campaign manager in June, a week after he was fired from the campaign

He also promised the crowd that a President Trump would put the entire Clinton family in prison.

Longtime Donald Trump adviser and ally Roger Stone spoke at the conspiracy-fueled “Lee Harvey Oswald Conference 2016” this weekend, telling attendees that former President Lyndon Johnson was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and promising that a President Trump would put the entire Clinton family in prison.

Trump urging his (mostly white) supporter base to go to "other communities" to make sure "no one robs the election" is so, so dangerous.

In response to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s baseless claims that there is “large-scale voter fraud happening on and before election day,” Univision pointed out the intimidating and deterring effect the claims could have on minority voters. In an October 12 article, Univision reported that Donald Trump is galvanizing his s

No, this won't stop minorities from voting. In fact it'll make them turn out in droves on election day.

It's taken way, way, way too long for the media to do the kind of reporting they're doing now. But it's better late than never.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is claiming that the media is “rigging the election” in response to increased scrutiny and an influx of investigative reporting on Trump’s business dealings, his taxes, his rhetoric about sexual assault, and accusations of sexual assault against the nominee. But the media scrutiny of Trump is a dra

The Media's job, from their perspective, is to sell add space, not primarily to inform. A close race, with plenty of drama, brings eyeballs to the screen and ad revenue to the bottom line.

Life just keeps getting more embarrassing for James

Self-described “guerilla journalist” James O’Keefe is threatening a “big release” of “behind close doors” video footage he claims will target Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign. But media shouldn’t buy O’Keefe’s “reporting.” Since 2009, he has repeatedly pushed misleading and doctored “undercover

I'm increasingly beginning to believe that one of those kids has put their father and his looney bin outlook on life and ideas in an attempt to take leadership of the Trump organization from him.

They coukd present ACTUAL campaign video footage to prove incompetence, gross negligence and being generally unfit to lead the organization...

My money is on Ivanka Trump or Tiffany Trump doing it....

Alex Jones founded the "9/11 Truther" movement which claims the government staged 9/11. Donald Trump has gone on his show and praised him for his "amazing" reputation.

Thought the GOP wanted "the voters to have a say in the next SCOTUS appointment"?

Now that it's looking like former SoS Clinton will most likely make that pick it's a different tune?

Guess they meant to say that they won't allow ANY democratic president to make the picks?....

How is that A. Lawful or B. Good policy of a legislative body?

This is a beautiful example of how absurdly little attention to facts or detail goes into right-wing "reporting."

@RandyGDub said he ‘loves’ working at an Ohio post office where he rigs the election for Hillary Clinton. Right-wing media took him seriously.

I think Trump is lowering the collective IQ of the entire Republican party to about three notches below a menstrual clot.

Megyn Kelly helped lay the groundwork for Trump's rigged election claims.

Megyn Kelly devoted weeks of her Fox News program in 2010 to pushing fraudulent claims that the Justice Department engaged in racially charged corruption by failing to act against two members of the New Black Panther Party who had supposedly intimidated voters at a Philadelphia polling station during the 2008 election. Will she devote similar c

"What is taking place in the United States follows a well-known Russian playbook"

As organizations such as WikiLeaks and DCLeaks continue to release emails that appear to originate from individuals close to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign, a group of former top national security officials and outside experts are warning “members of the media to stay engaged and to think critically about the fac
