I thought I was wrong but after the smoke cleared, both sides are just the same, just media likes the one it can control. Buck the media and shame them, then see their wrath. Media has the power to change the world and like Nazi propaganda, can sensationalize and plagiarize, without malice. Think about it, they can print and edit history and make good just as bad as the evil, that we believe exists.

Rioters and looters are peaceful protesters
A federal building surrounded by the weapons wielding
The hoods participating in the killing
Polictial vetting, in all in betting
Disruption hiding their corruption
A political game, both parties have no shame
It's easier to stand aside, when time to blame

Yep, they say news has gotten smarter since Trump. Actually a lot dumber. To sensationalized. Way back when Maury Povitch had his own show, Current Affairs. it was just a show. Now everything on the net is built around that style. We bits of facts twisted into a jumble of deception.
