    If I have to hear ONE MORE CONSERVATIVE distill their entire raison d'etre as being trolling the libruls I'm going to scream. You are correct, Trump and his supporters seem to be more than happy just enjoying "Liberal tears" which indeed makes them both trolls and misanthropes.

    What is wrong with us as a cohesive nation?

    Pfft. It's a threat to sue....with no legal basis....by hey, the Trump campaign has plenty of money to to burn so maybe they think the propaganda value of such action is worth it.

    I really hope they go through it so they can be laughed out of court.

    No kidding. And the fact that he has a reasonable shot at a second term speaks volumes about the judgment of a wide swath of the American electorate.

    What a freak show.

    Yes, if this goes to trial, I think you'll quickly see a lawsuit filed against Fox News for their "Fair and Balanced" claim. Worse, I think some documents have already been leaked from Fox News, in the past, that show they were intentionally not being "fair and balanced."

    I think I agree with most, though, CNN will claim First Amendment rights and it won't ever make it to trial.

    Fox actually dropped "Fair and Balanced" a couple of years ago. Now it's "Most Watched. Most Trusted.", which actually makes it even more vulnerable if this goes anywhere.

    I understand but I believe they can still be sued for that time period. I also don't believe Fox would want to have to turn over the various documents that would be asked for as discovery. Again, my recollection is a limited number of documents have already leaked, which clearly shows that they were working to change the public's attitude, not being "fair and balanced."

    One cannot defame Donald Trump. It is simply not possible.

    They seem to be doing that effectively. It’s not clear from over here how much is about change, and how much about reinforcement. Whichever it is, it is incredibly blatant, I’ve watched it a few times and you have people on their spouting some misrepresentation of some issue or other, followed by the presenters using actual phrases like ‘well to me it’s blatantly obvious’ before getting another couple of talking heads to reiterate the same misleading nonsense. I don’t think they’d get away with such blatant distorting of events anywhere else, for some reason you have a big market for that ‘tell me what I want to hear’ kind of reporting over there.

    And more importantly, when did they stop beating their wife?

    Plus imagine all the air-time to demonstrating how Donald's many lies are actually lies. No more time for right-wing talking heads, have to be sure to show that the claims that Donald is lying are backed up with copious documentation.

    He probably got his lawyer to do it. No, not the one in jail for paying off the porn star he cheated with his wife on. The other one.

    Nope, not the one who met with his partners before they got arrested at an airport with one-way tickets out of the country.

    The other one.

    Of course it's possible. He is not, for example, a Satanist, a drug addict or a drunkard.

    Here is what I would ask vocal Trump supporters to consider. 20, 30, 50 years from now your friends, children, and grandchildren will know you defended this clown. Is that the legacy you want?

    I get it - it is hard to admit you are wrong. It is hard for all of us. But I would ask you to consider the long term damage supporting this man will do to your reputation.
