      every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the

    Why does TYT keep ignoring all these rapes and murders committed by
    refugees in Europe?

    • Posted by joshtimaz, at Reply

      +100kasimpasali plus im not saying all Muslims rape, but not all men rape,
      so does that mean that rape is not a problem. All im saying is that people
      from islamic cultures are prone more to sexual assaults which means it is a
      cultural problem and therefore we can reduce the number of women being
      raped by challenging the ideas in their culture that cause this. I supposed
      women being raped is a price worth paying if we can avoid peoples feelings
      getting hurt from their culture being criticized

      +Joshtimaz Fake news alert! Your statistic is a lie spread by
      anti-immigration website. They think since you gullible people can’t read
      Swedish, they can make it say whatever they want. Quite typical. The source
      you linked to does not even mention rape, muslims or a percentage like
      77.6%. The actual BRA report, which the article used as a source also does
      not verify these numbers at all.

    • Posted by 100kasimpasali, at Reply

      +joshtimaz The problem I have with people in your mind set is that you seem
      to forget that these Muslims are normal ordinary people as well. You can
      easily believe that 77% of rapes are committed by Muslims after reading
      from some Swedish website and claim that it is in their culture to rape
      people -_- . Which probably makes you sleep easier at night knowing what
      these people have went through and are going through as a direct/indirect
      result of the action of our governments.

      I am not saying that Countries that follow Islam have no problems and I
      believe that they should be more Secular and democratic. However you cant
      just overlook your wrongs and just blame another group of people…

    • Posted by Blob Loblaw, at Reply

      +100kasimpasali The Swedish website doesn’t even say anything like 77% of
      rapes being committed by Muslims. This is completely false. It does not
      even mention rape or muslims.

      when they claim to be giving the facts/synopsis of whatever happening in
      the story they’re covering. they piss me off some of the time with their

    I think the main stream media doesn’t cover the story because its not that

    When u hire these reporters how do u trust them not to be biased, toward
    one or the other,now days who can we trust. Sometime it’s hard to no what
    side some of u TYT people r on

    • Posted by MPythonGirl, at Reply

      The best way is to start by ignoring the interpretation the first time
      through and listen for the pure facts and comparing both sides. Let’s take
      the Standing Rock thing. What did we know at the beginning?

      Oil Company is building a pipe; Native Americans are protesting. Why?
      Something about Sacred Land, but later the water poisoning thing came up?

      Now, TYT didn’t cover how many people die of poisoned water from pipe
      sources, but most people don’t use rivers for drinking water (Unless it
      works differently in other states) and Oil *is* in fact, pretty hard to
      clean up. And you *can* end up at a site with the stats for “significant”
      oil spills (these are defined there, and I agreed with them when I read
      them, don’t have it memorized)
      http://www.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline/library/data-stats/pipelineincidenttrends

      Now, apparently (according to the otherside, but unverified by me), the
      company got permission from the Tribal Leaders. But given the size of the
      protest, I’d say the Leaders weren’t listening, or weren’t informing, who
      they were representing until after the deal was over. That’s an issue.

      Well… then people start getting attacked by dogs. OK, maybe bias says it
      was on purpose when it was a loss of control. I dunno. People got injured
      by police dogs, this is fact. (In my opinion this is clearly were they
      should pause construction for a week or two and negotiate. Construction
      will be faster if they aren’t fighting protestors anyway.) The self-defense
      claim is viable until *someone loses an arm.* In what world is using enough
      force to make someone lose an arm OK? War. That is a War thing. Is this a
      War thing? No, no it is not. It was also not a medical neccessity. Feel
      free to think of other situations.

      So, regardless or how legitimate their claim to the land was (somewhere
      between suspicious-but-legal and dubious) they are clearly being at least
      neglectful, but probably outright assulting protesters. At *least* the
      chick who lost an arm.

    • Posted by Bobbett Arnold, at Reply

      +MPythonGirl Do people still speak of facts anymore, they seem to have
      gotten lost in the election

    • Posted by MPythonGirl, at Reply

      Even the sources that have no facts speak *of* them. Fake news will say
      “these are the facts,” whcih speaks of facts.

      It is also important to note that, despite being completely fake, even
      those have the fact that someone wrote said article, and the results of
      said articles. These are important… and why Snopes exists. If you want
      facts, read Snopes. I just shoved Snopes at a Pizzagate guy.

      Unfortuately, News isn’t neccessarily held to high Standards, which puts
      the responsibilty on us if we want truth. Always check both sides. And
      Snopes.

      The cool thing about Investigative Reporters though, is that if they make a
      knowing false harmful claim of a rich powerful person and claim it as
      truth, they are fucked. (Libel is a thing.) But if the claim is *true* then
      the police get involved (to varying effect). So while the reporters may be
      biased, they need to at least report accurate facts within the BS.

      It’s from the cringe worthy “frat boy” style Trump camp online comentary
      they did during the election. It was said by one of Trumps top advisors to
      another top Trump advisor as he entered the room while they were Live on
      Air. It was advertised as the first example of Trump TV, a media company
      Trump and Roger Ailes would create if Trump were to loose the election.

    • Posted by jtothag007, at Reply

      We still may get Trump TV… it’s a possibility that he won’t be able to
      part with his many conflicting interests. He would rather resign than lose
      out on $$. It’s the art of the deal; 1: leverage your position, 2: take the

    • Posted by TheTruthNJ09, at Reply

      +Ben Warren – Fine. I’ll respond to your dumb assed comment…

      TYT is not just this main show. It’s a whole network of channels with
      different opinions than each other; but they’re all the same underlying
      PROGRESSIVE principals. Secular Talk, Jimmy Dore Show, and Aggressive
      Progressives are part of the TYT network. Kyle from Secular Talk doesn’t
      “echo” everything the main TYT show says and neither does Jimmy Dore. If
      you would have taken the time to learn the facts about what TYT is, you
      wouldn’t even have to question. Stop paying attention to the astroturfers
      in the comment section.

      And yes, TYT is “news media”. They always give the facts and *then* their
      opinions on it. They’ve never hidden how they do this since 2008.

    • Posted by Ben Warren, at Reply

      +TheTruthNJ09
      “Fine. I’ll respond to your dumb assed comment”
      Sanctimonious prick.

      “TYT is not just this main show”
      Yeah. I know. Like I said in the comment to which you are responding, I am
      not new to TYT.

      “doesn’t ‘echo’ everything the main TYT show says”
      Who said he was. But, he does echo other regressive talking points, just
      like all the TYT “networks”.

      “If you would have taken the time to learn the facts about what TYT is, you
      wouldn’t even have to question”
      I know all of this already. But unlike real “news media”, TYT does not even
      do basic vetting of most of their “stories”. The Sarah Palin “gaffe” comes
      to mind. Remember when Cenk echoed Raw Story’s reporting on Sarah Palin
      claiming that BLM “rioters” were not “people”? If you don’t, it’s OK. I,
      and many others, do. Cenk was essentially forced to issue a retraction
      because she actually said “peaceful”. But, real “news media” would have
      vetted the Raw Story claim before echoing it. A careful unbiased listening
      of her comment is all that was needed to realize that that criticism was
      erroneous. But, TYT could not be bother: Sarah Palin said something stupid,
      let’s run with it.

      “Stop paying attention to the astroturfers in the comment section.”
      Actually, you need to start. Some of the criticisms are accurate.

      “And yes, TYT is ‘news media'”
      Nope. They are pundits.

      “They always give the facts”
      Except; they often get the facts wrong. Their lack of attention to detail
      is well documented. I gave but one example. Given time and desire, I could
      present more. Even though they employ a journalism professor, they have yet
      to learn how to journalism.

    • Posted by Bill, at Reply

      And your lack of recollection of any of these “many” non-researched
      journalism is very enlightening. Please share a few more so we all can
      prove how bad tyt is at reporting because they have wronged so many
      stories. I want to be agree too, tell me i would like to hear. Because your
      most trusted news source that you personally watch is way better at
      reporting stories with facts for every one of their stories with few
      mistake, right, so tell us we are all ears.

    • Posted by Ben Warren, at Reply

      +Bill
      Do you deny that TYT was wrong about their reporting on the Sarah Palin
      interview this past July?

      If you deny it, no amount of evidence will convince you that TYT does not
      properly vet their stories and therefore should not be concerned a place to
      get news; gossip maybe, but, not news.

      If you don’t deny it, I have made my point. Give me a compelling reason to
      reexamine TYT content to provide other instances. Because if you recognize
      that TYT has done so in the past, it is not much of a leap to recognize
      that they do so on other stories.

      Even if you don’t deny it but think that it is an isolated instance, the
      lack of vetting on that specific instance should be alarming. Again, an
      unbiased ear heard “peaceful” on the first listen. How could no one at TYT
      have recognized the clear misrepresentation from Raw Story before echoing?
      Answer: No one at TYT cared to critically listen to her comment; not
      becoming of a news organization.

      Honestly, I only hate watch TYT now. I used to want to believe that they
      were different. But, they aren’t any different than the other gossip sites
      on the internet. And, their claims of being “news media” is laughable.
