Another picture that proves you wrong despite it being as misleading as you can find. People gather at the front of the pens, hiding some of the empty space, that's why you pick low shots from the front. Trump's press secretary lied, Conway lied, grow up and accept it.

I did already, that link down below "Donald Trump inauguration crowds fail to fill National Mall"

the CNN giga picture shows the crowd going all the way back.

you're right they shouldn't call it "alternate facts" they should just call it what it is, "fake news".

No it doesn't!

You're actually posting links to pictures proving you wrong despite the favourable camera angle. Is this what you've been reduced to?

Hey I've just realised, alternate facts ... alt-facts, to go with the alt-right. That sounds like it should be satire.

What do you think that gigapixel shows? I see empty space at the back.

The media reported on the size of the crowd because that's what they do. No one is saying nobody showed up, that's your false narrative. People are saying that Trump is less popular than Obama was, what's wrong with that?

Gee, I don't know

Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as anti-Trump demonstrators smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police


You don't know, so you're giving me a completely irrelevant link to change the subject?

Satire is lost on some people. It's completely irrelevant that the media continue on it's tirade of bashing Trump and inflaming hatred with nonsensical reports on sizes of crowds, okay.


So yes, you don't know so you're trying to change the subject - to blame the media for Trump's own actions in a different aspect, this time stirring up hatred. Really, people discussing popularity in politics and calling out lies is inflaming hatred?

At least you're not hiding, you've got that over TangledThorns.

Come on Cutter. Yeah, every politician ever has used vague or misleading language and broken promises. But to regularly say things which are provably false -- immediately -- is unprecedented.

*unpresidented

Trump is much more damaging than other politicians. He's not responsible for the malaise that lead to him getting elected - where were the protests about the Supreme Court seat dereliction of duty? - but he's a demagogue who attacks fragile democratic norms.

Right out of the gate the media is trying to paint a false narrative that he's completely unpopular, so unpopular that nobody showed up for his inauguration. It's the media that are acting childish in this case.

*cringe*

That is pathetic. Are you so gullible because you're not brave enough to accept that supporting Trump was huge a mistake? Even someone who voted for Trump out of stupidity wouldn't post that, this is a special kind of dishonesty.

Probably because the science will dictate the message instead of scammers and idiots.

Trump thinks the climate change is fake news. Like everything that he wants to be wrong IS wrong in his opinion. Soon, a "ministry of truth" will check all news before they are allowed to be published.

I hear "alternative facts" is their latest name for lies.

Saboth wrote on Jan 21, 2017, 21:30:
So Sean Spicer (Trump's press secretary) just had a press conference where he literally yelled at the media for accurately reporting the fact Trump had about 60% fewer in attendance at his inauguration than Obama did in 2009. Photo evidence proves about 1/2 as many showed up as Trump prepared for. Thousands of people on the ground confirmed the numbers. He is using the number of Metro riders as proof X amount of people were at the inauguration, but Trump protestors were also using the Metro yesterday and today. In fact, many estimate the number of protestors today dwarfed the number that turned out for Trump's big day. Sad to see the *White House Press Secretary* yelling at the media for reporting facts on Trump because it bruises Trump's fragile ego.


Damn lügenpresse. Expect to see Trump continue to attack the media, that's what demagogues do and it's been effective so far.

What opportunity, the chance to assassinated by a white man? Some opportunity.

Er, well, sort of! I don't think that was their target aim goal but they said and did things that actually caused people problems. To be worth assassinating, Ashley Judd would have to say something to make silencing her worthwhile.

To be fair, she still has that chance. She'd be upsetting the (far) right people.

I've thought about getting a GPS collar for my cat but, ironically, I'd be worried about losing it. He wears snap collars, designed to break off so he doesn't hang himself while climbing, so every few months he comes home naked - probably just the collar getting harmlessly caught on something but I don't know.

Hopefully they will be cheaper - and smaller - in a few years' time.

It's not fake news. You'd have made a better point if you hadn't compared it to Pizzagate.

You're right that this is lousy, emotionally manipulative journalism that clouds the issue. For a start the dog isn't terrified, that's tabloid sensationalism. It's unhappy and scared but I worked at an animal rescue centre, I'd love to have only seen dogs like that one arrive.

I would not assume that animals in any movie labelled "no animals were harmed during production" are treated any better. That's the real issue, but one that would require TMZ to lift a phone or something.

Was Skyfall the one where the plot device was a leaked list agent list and they ran out of money and filmed a home alone third act? Yeah that one was...not good at all. I remember laughing at mister glass jaw in that. Quantum of Solace had its issues but it was still a better experience than Skyfall.

Yes, Skyfall was the one that gave you all the backstory on Bond's upbringing that you never asked for, took away all the mystery surrounding him, and ended up with him being Kevin McCallister.

Easily the worst of the new Bond movies. I know it gets a ton of praise, but my god, I never needed to know where Bond grew up. It wasn't quite as bad as Halloween 6 explaining how the druids were responsible for Michael Meyers, but it's up there for backstories I never needed explained.

I enjoyed Skyfall while watching but thinking about it afterwards, so many things fell apart. I'm sure there are exceptions but movie twists about villains deliberately getting caught never seem to work. Also, creepiest sex scene in any Bond film. Going into Bond's upbringing was a bad idea and I've heard Spectre takes this further, but I haven't bothered to watch it yet.

Casino Royale was brilliant. QoS was dull to watch but holds up better than Skyfall.

That's true, and I was wary of contributing to that. I have little patience for those who explicitly criticise what they perceive as thin skin - they're not going to mind, right? - but that doesn't apply here.

We live in very difficult and strange times. In a period where people shout about injustices and equality, their true message is that of hatred towards the other side.

I hope at some point, the yelling stops, and the fixing begins.....I always come back to this idea that somewhere along the way we are now UNABLE to be ok with someone else's point of view and just take the stance that because you don't agree with me you hate me - so I hate you.

I think MLK Jr is rolling in his grave.

Maybe the fixing begins when people - white men in particular - stop associating people shouting about injustices and equality with hatred. We tried having no one talk about these things, we had slavery and such like. Lets try opening our ears and minds because when we shit on the people being shit on because they're being shit on, we're only making things worse.

Well said, Cutter. This and citing Harvard papers, you never cease to surprise me.

I would be in favour of investing in infrastructure - to a point, naturally - but I wouldn't trust Trump not to award huge contracts to the newly formed Kushner Construction Company who do a piss poor job for future administrations to fix.
