    Your right....I'm thinking MNBC and CNN aren't willing to give up their slam Trump with fake news time.

    One was blathering about Russia and the other mocking his over seas trip.

    So for those who depend on CNN and MSNBC for your news...you need to flip it to Drudge or Fox time to time or you might miss something.

    I have posted a Harvard study about negative MSM reporting and also one about selective news reporting about Trump's highly successful Middle East trip.

    Bombing and terrorism now is not good timing for libs. If this turns out to be terrorism, Europe will listen to Trump's message even if libs in the US still don't get it.

    ANY delay in getting this out with full detail can be construed as manipulation.

    I'd run with 'both'.

    I know for fact that it twists their innards. Cognitive dissonance is not comfy.

    Funny you should mention that..... I was just over at Democratic Underground and there are multiple leftists posting that they hope it's not Muzzies........but if they are responsible hopefully most of the deaths are due to a 'stampede'........seriously, I'm not making this up. If I live to be 1000 years old I will never begin to understand the mind of a liberal leftist....

    You are misinformed. And your post shows ignorance. CNN and msnbc JUST brought this event to light a few short minutes ago. You obviously just turned to their stations.

    I think I would guess option 1 based on previous history.

    Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American
