    If Stelter wants to see unbalanced, he need only look in the mirror.

    • Cecelia

      The media’s mantra is that unbalanced is balance.

      There are no “alternate facts” that add nuance and perspective to other facts. There are just apples or bananas.

      There are no alternative views, misstatements, or misperceptions. There is utter truth or complete lies.

      Everything they say is now “settled science”.

      • Tom Higgens

        They shouldn’t focus on balance at all, they should focus on objective reality. I’m not real interested in what the flat earth guy has to say.

        • Cecelia

          Nowadays, objective reasoning Is solely denoted as a matter of water being wet.

          That’s as fuzzy and as stilted a perspective as all the relativism in the world.

          • Tom Higgens

            Well respectfully, it doesn’t seem all that fuzzy to me. I think noise distorts it, but it is there, and I think the goal of good journalism should always be revealing that.

          • Cecelia

            Sometimes noise is noise and sometimes it’s a part of reality we don’t wish to hear.

    • Grandpa D

      Where did Stelter pick up his JD and PsyD degrees?

      • Dollar store. (no relation)

        Dr. Tapper, Dr. Stelter, Dr.Tapper.

            Suture… suture self.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        In a Cracker Jack box.

    • Cecelia

      Trump’s tweets are often juvenile and in matters of saber-rattling against tyrants, you do wish for gravitas.

      It’s our misfortune to have an equally loud-mouthed, indelicate elite class.

      A media and DC establishment that has all of Trump’s narcissism and none of his commonality.

      In their lack of trustworthiness and their totalitarian impulse, they are more akin to North Korea’s honcho than is Trump.

  • Saintsfan720

    Good for Greta; not sure if she is trying to come back to FNC but her posts were all true.
    As for Stelter, more Trump hysteria coming I guess in 2018.

  • Re: “… Joe Concha reviews the worst media fails of 2017”: We’ve gone from Woodward and Bernstein to Woodward vs. Bernstein. By that, I mean they have different perspectives these days. Joe cited Bob’s, while Carl is in the same resistance boat as Jorge Ramos and Jim Acosta.

  • Larry Kelly

    I too am ‘devastated‘ over losing out to Hoda, but truth be known, I’ve never bested her.

    • Cecelia

      I may have a time or two in the wine department.

  • Mitch Alan

    With Geraldo in for Juan Williams, I was able to watch The Five for the first time in months! Hopefully Juan will take a permanent vacation.

    • Dennis Christensen

      And he sounded sane for a change.

  • J.J.

    BIG ratings night for MSNBC tonight.

    Bannon, treason, Don Jr, Russia Collusion, Trump has no clue — MSNBC should thank Mr Wolffe and Mr Bannon

    • Larry Kelly

      Add a dash of “Trump is nuts” and you have a MSNBC pot luck supreme.
