It is Jim Acosta giving speeches at POTUS press conferences, or Lesley Stahl lecturing the vice president about what SHE thinks. Who cares? Why should anybody care what she thinks? Imagine what the Left would say if Tucker Carlson had been around to lecture Obama, they'd tell him to "shut up" - and so would I.

      I'm sorry Lesley but this isn't about you or what you think.
      This started, IIRC, in the late 80s. The first time I saw it was in an interview where the reporter made the whole story about him interviewing someone rather than the actual interview. Well over half the article was dedicated to the writer going on about what he had for lunch before the interview and similar crap.

            I can understand it to a small degree, when lesser-known journalists are trying to climb up the ladder. They need to get some name recognition in order to advance their careers.

            But Lesley Stahl and Jim Acosta? These buffoons are already at the top of the heap. So when they pontificate it is just their massive egos being exposed.

                Nothing against Trump. Partisan indictments against some former campaign members. I haven't heard of any convictions as a result of the Mueller investigation.

                A $48 million waste of time and money. The Leftist press sure loved it, though. They babbled about it ad nauseum while it was going on.

                  .. and totally false.

                  The investigation was run by Republicans, and it turned up clear evidence of obstruction of justice - a conclusion which would result in an indictment for every other person on the planet except for a sitting president.

                      OK, Stone. Wasn't Manafort was investigated before Mueller (?)

                        Which idiot banned Hypatia?

                        She was murdered in 415 CE by a Christian mob who attacked her on the streets of Alexandria. The primary sources, even those Christian writers who were hostile to her and claimed she was a witch, are generally sympathetic in recording her death as a tragedy. These accounts routinely depict Hypatia as a woman who was widely known for her generosity, love of learning, and expertise in teaching in the subjects of Neo-Platonism, mathematics, science, and philosophy.

                          Must have been something serious. Compared to other discussion boards I am familiar with, TWEB is relatively lenient.

                            If it was something she posted then it seems the moderators scrubbed any evidence of it from her posting history because I can't find the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back, so I suspect it was something else like her being a previously banned member who had signed up under a different name.

What a joke. The information it contains has already been verified by Hunter's business associates. But she knows this. It's funny that she thinks she's going to convince Trump of it.
                              Hell just look at the Steele Dossier alone. Many news orgs were reporting on it as if it were fact. And Twitter never once censored or blocked their accounts, either.

                                Interesting description of how her nom de plume was quite the misnomer.
