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.


Yeah, kinda stupid statement. I would have put it better:
"Look at the weather and compare it to Obamas inaugurations."

Obama's 2009 inauguration was in the high 20s. Trump's was high 40s, with some light rain.

http://wtop.com/weather/2017/01/inauguration-weather-friday-years/slide/1/
Rain at those temperatures can mess you up really badly.
I shouldnt have to tell you that.

Whether (heh, "weather!") true for all/most or not, a proper politician would have gone with what you're saying. That's spin. It isn't a lie, but it's a new angle to view the facts.

Instead, they just made up facts, then got angry when people disagreed. You're right, being rained on in 40 degree weather is really unpleasant. Is that worse than 20 degree weather? Depends on the person, but it's a perfectly valid belief for why crowds were down.

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.


"Nonsensical" = accurate. Show me a single MSM report on the crowd sizes that isn't accurate.

Meanwhile, you are still ignoring that the Press Secretary flat out lied. Somehow, to you, that's the fault of the media. It's mind-blowing to me. Had they just said "the crowds were large and we're very happy with the turnout on this rainy January morning" people would have been fine, but that isn't what the Press Secretary did. He claimed it was the most viewed ever, both in person and on TV. Both those statements are provably false.

And then, when pushed, the White House continued by calling it not a lie but "alternate facts."

Yet you're still harping on news reports you imagined.

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".

The angle of the Gigapicture isn't right to see how far back it goes. Even still, when you zoom, you see all the white space.

Try this, for multiple angles.

Ok, you're fighting a strawman. NO ONE SAID "NOBODY SHOWED UP!"

People said it wasn't as well attended as Obama's. You're here, making things up, and desperately not responding to your team (and you seem to be treating this like it's sports, so that makes sense) saying "this was the largest gathering for an inauguration. Period."

No one said "nobody showed up," but the PRESS SECRETARY said "this was the largest ever." Why are you so desperately dancing around that?

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?

I love that he's blaming the media and a "false narrative."

He's utterly ignoring that only Trump called it the biggest ever. The media never once said it wasn't attended, they said it was less attended than Obamas, which is factually true. Trump came out and said this was wrong, and was the biggest and most attended ever.

A true believer, though, can't question Donald, much like Kim Jong In can't be questioned. Instead, it's everyone else's fault that Donald Trump was forced to lie over something so insignificant.

But the TVs that have HDr aren't more expensive because of hdr. They're the flagship TVs. They have significantly better specs, which hdr is part of but they're better regardless. They're also thinner and more elegantly designed.

It isn't like they're taking a model, adding hdr, raising the price and calling it a day. It's just new tech solely in the flagship models. Over the next two years it'll trickle down to regular models. These things always do. But they start in the top models while companies figure out manufacturing.

You're a cheerleader here. Can you defend "alternate facts?" I haven't seen a single trump fanboy even address this, yet I feel your zeolitry is the type that you would. That, or you'll deflect, call someone a cuck or special snowflake, tell them to get over it, and somehow bring up Hillary while complaining everyone else does.

HDR is more universally appealing, though. Do people know what it is now? No. But if you put them in front of two TVs, side by side, they can easily see the difference. Everyone can see the difference, and it requires no additional devices such as glasses. It, like HD, will seamlessly become part of everything, because it genuinely is that much better and requires no additional effort from content creators.

"Man, that TV sure is a lot more purdy than this one! Let's get that one!"
"It's four hundred dollars more expensive."
"Oh. Yeah... We'll take this cheap one."

As long as TV manufacturers keep trying to make 80000000% profit on whatever their new Gimmick Du Jour is, it'll just stay a gimmick.

HDTV was once significantly more expensive. Even 3D trickled down to virtually every tv at its height.

You're a tech guy. You know that it takes a bit. Intel's first quad-core processor was $1,000, but that tech made it downstream. BMW puts all its new tech in its six figure 7-series, but it eventually makes it down to the 1-series. NVIDIA puts its new tech in the $1,000 Titan, but eventually it hits $150 consumer parts.

If the government is reading this, Donald Trump is our Glorious Leader. He was the first man off of the Mayflower, the Constitution was his idea, he invented both Electricity and American Football on the same day, his penis is bigger than anyone else's, and he's the odds on favorite to win the Superbowl.

What's hilarious is that half of gamers voted for him, most likely. But, the group-think on Blue's is certainly strong. It's why you all lost. Keep it up.

Millennials went almost 2-1 for Clinton. Gen Y went for Clinton by 10 points. It as voter 45 and older that went for Trump in greater numbers than Clinton.

You must work for CNN or MSNBC with those useless stats to prove your fake-news polls. How about some reality:

http://bit.ly/1B1q1Ao

39% to 32%. Adjust for gender (52/50). Then, median age of a gamer is 36. Younger games are probably uneducated, so they would vote for Trump. Nice try, too bad mommy and daddy wasted all that money for you to get your gender studies degree and not something that gives you a clue. Keep it up buddy,it just helps on the reelection front.

http://bit.ly/1XaOkpH


I'm really not certain you understood what jdreyer said, which is funny, because you accuse him of being unintelligent and having a gender studies degree.

I also enjoy the "we're not deplorable!" argument from someone that accuses people who don't agree with him of having "gender studies degrees" and of having trust funds and then posts a picture calling people "pussies."

It's like you guys don't get when words accurately describe you.

Or that time they claimed to have a Russian bombshell only to never release it after Russia threatened them. Shortly thereafter the Russian government gave him a talk show on Russia Today and nominated him for a Nobel Peace Prize.

And, of course, there are the times WikiLeaks has scrubbed information damaging to Russia from their releases.

Demand is just a greater form of want, in this case. Valve is free to deny it, of course, but when they do so, then they're intentionally being jackass story authors.

Claiming you are owed something is far more than just wanting it.

Either we'll eventually get HL3 from Valve, or we'll never get it (by the way, the notion that they "owe" making that game to their customers is quite a silly one). It's pretty much as simple and clear-cut as that.
Quote from Black Mesa developer [BMS] Chicken Chonnage
Duh Derrp
Sadly I must agree with Parker. They broke up the story into parts and then ended it on a cliffhanger, telling everyone that it would be a 3 part story. If they had just stopped after HL2 with an open ending, that would be one thing. But there is no ending to Ep2; it just stops, to be continued in Episode 3.

Obviously we can't force Valve to do anything. But you're a jackass of an author if you sell your customers the first part of the story and then decide, on your own volition, that you don't want to work on the rest. (Just imagine of Lucas decided to stop after Empire Stikes Back, or Abrams stops after Episode 8...)
Valve owes nobody nothing, to think otherwise is unrealistic.

EXAMPLE
My favorite restaurant makes the best Denver Omelette in the known underverse. If they were to take it off the menu, or quit serving breakfast all together they would still not owe me an omelette.

I have never understood the entitled gamer argument.
You're comparing, well, eggs and media. One you instantly consume, and you either have all of it or you don't. A narrative has multiple parts, is consumed sequentially, and takes time to do so.

The problem isn't that we want Valve to make Ricochet 2, where the original Ricochet was a complete product. The problem is that we want Valve to finish the incomplete product they sold us in the first place.

Yes, we all want it. There's a difference between wanting something and adamantly demanding it.

Philips has a fantastic R&D department. They have invented tons of fucking amazing things. Their ability to actually build something is substantially worse.


Most of what you mentioned Phillips doesn't actually make. They've licensed their name out for most of those products in the US. TVs included. It's why Ambilight never made it here - Philips only sells TVs in Europe... and that may even be outdated now. But, in the US, they're rebranded Funai... along with Emerson, Sylvania, etc. Basically, the crap you find at Walmart.
