  1. Wish there was a channel really showing the news without shoving their agenda down my throat


    • Pensa Simpson agree with everything you said except defunding being a poor choice of words. It’s accurate people are just dumb and they don’t do their research before the comment on an issue of which they know nothing about.

    • Craig TheSchmeg Her explanation makes sense because it’s facts and that IS what BLM is fighting for, but you wouldn’t know that because you don’t know what BLM or defunding police means outside of whatever media bubble you listen to

      @MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN You think you’re going to go into poor neighborhoods where the government has flooded guns since the 60s and be a superhero and make all these citizens arrest? Hey, everybody gotta have a dream I guess.

      @TracyTheRed they don’t want to see it that way. They chose to politicize anything and everything.
      They cannot not hear us now…they just chose to not hear us. the word they r choosing to use to express themselves will tell u who they r.

    • TracyTheRed | June 9, 2020 at 7:52 PM | Reply

      @Claudette J Renegade Cut has a whole video on YouTube dedicated to how the process works of how politicians polarize issues that are not political, if you are interested.

    • Claudette J | June 9, 2020 at 8:09 PM | Reply

      @TracyTheRed thank u for sharing that. I have never been a political person, I have studied it on college, but never went down that path. But over the last 12 yrs i had started doin a lot of research on what people were saying. Then bunker boy came along and I have spent hours each day reviewing laws, fact checking, and following stories of the current chaos he has created. I am so deep into politics now that I might as well run for an office lol. I just can’t take the pettiness of the game, so never mind lol.
      Thank u again, I will look up that video.

    • Calvin R. Johnson Jr. they are withholding aid to states that don’t follow federal law. Get it right. Also democrats have allready tilted the ninth circuit to being liberal. And if Democrats had their way the entire Supreme Court would be liberal and if republicans had their way they would make them all conservatives. Both sides are trying to tip the scales. And what voting suppression tactics are you talking about??? Letting illegals vote so you can get a win. Or mail in votes that can easily lead to fraud. Or letting felons vote? And if you think the country is fascist it because your being lied to by your liberal media that makes everybody they don’t like sound as bad as possible.

    “Defund the police” is already a political stance. How is Trump commenting on it now suddenly “politicizing” it? C’mon, fake news — I’ve seen you at least try harder than that in the past.

    • Robert Blackford | June 9, 2020 at 8:37 AM | Reply

      Bob Fischer Joe Biden disagrees with you. Joe Biden along with Trump is against defunding police departments. You are on the far left political fringe and your statements are dishonest. Why are you such a dishonest person?

    • Shreshth Kaushik | June 9, 2020 at 9:38 AM | Reply

      @Bob Fischer Illhan Omar and AOC have definitely endorsed and called for Defunding and even dismantling the police department.

    • @Robert Blackford woah. at no point did i say i was for anything. i explained what the movement is about. my own personal thoughts you actually don’t care about, so there is no point in either of us pretending so. I’m unclear why you treat honest discussion of ideas with such hostility.

    • @Shreshth Kaushik indeed, that is true, although two of the most far left politicians making a statement hardly defines a political party, any more than the far right defines a political party. However, you are right, those two have come out very recently to support that. I don’t know that i would agree with their stance, having not read it yet, but calls to dismantle police departments are not new, and have been done in the past. It does not result in “no police”, it results in forming a new department, with new leadership, but many of the same officers returning to their jobs after having re-applied for the job. That i think in some cases might be needed, as the corruption and “thin blue line” system of police IA departments is incompetent at best, malignant at worst.

      Bob Fischer Cute Bob, you had your argument defeated so you shrink back to victim status.

    Yeah, okay…you guys are off your rocker.

    Amazing how the ones who protest the loudest to bring an end to stereotyping also happen to be the same ones who stereotype the most.

    • Yeah. Most of them always assume that if a white cop kills or harms a Person of Color, it’s because of white supremacy and then they go on to make all cops look feared and distrusted because of a bad apple

    • Patrick Bateman | June 9, 2020 at 5:45 AM | Reply

      @Dan An A bad apple?? Do these cops not receive the same training? Are you not aware that when two cops where suspended for pushing an elderly man on the floor, the entire team resigned??

    • Jeffrey Gifford | June 9, 2020 at 7:18 AM | Reply

      @Dan An 1 thing im wondering is this george floyd thing happened in public in broad daylight…so wtf didnt mob 4 cops n stop it!? Did everybody just kinda watch or what!?

    • stephan drobot | June 9, 2020 at 12:58 PM | Reply

      @Jeffrey Gifford citizens get shot when they touch a cop… As much as everyone probably wanted to pull those pigs off brother George, they couldn’t bring themselves to risk their lives…

    How could changing power not be “political”
    ya’ll need to look that word up, it’s your whole thing

    • Nocona Roubideaux | June 9, 2020 at 10:35 AM | Reply

      They mean partisan or party politics which is the second definition of the word political.

  9. Wish there was a way to defund MSLSD

  10. Jackbusters | June 9, 2020 at 3:42 AM | Reply

    Defunding the police legitimately is a political issue. Its done using politics. Not sure how it could be further politicized. Can someone explain this to me?

    • @Jackbusters wearing masks. Destroying the environment. Believing Republicans actually care about poor white people and not just large corporations.
      Basically everything except guns, gays, and abortions.
      At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if democrats came out against shooting yourself in the foot and Republicans did it out of protest.

      @Isaiah Rowley I so agree, I personally can’t stand him but this crap is insane!

    • A lone Voice | June 9, 2020 at 6:39 PM | Reply

      @Verse yeah well, and today WHO comes out and said “very rarely do asymptomatic people transmut COVID-19!” What the crap?

    • A lone Voice | June 9, 2020 at 6:40 PM | Reply

      @Anne Deobald uuumm no words, this takes some major stretching.

    • @Susie Dupuy if not the Democrats, then who ? Certainly not Republicans

  11. The democrats politicized this along time ago, you in the media are delusional

  12. Lbolting005 | June 9, 2020 at 6:15 AM | Reply

    We all know how accurate the polls are…

    Yeah, I’m being sarcastic.

  13. Consider the source MSNBC. Stories that have conclusions that meet the liberal bias, this is NOT journalism.

  14. MSNBC in their ivory tower can’t see what is coming. Is a glorious thing to watch.

  15. “How did we get it that wrong AGAIN?!”
    After his landslide reelection, since you guys are so smart and have so much integrity, will you resign?

  16. The comments gives humanity hope!😌

    No one with a brain truly believes the garbage the media that try’s so desperately to convince the public. #fakenews

    oh trump was the one that politicized it?

  18. Pierre Poisson | June 9, 2020 at 8:42 AM | Reply

    It should be politicized. It’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.

  19. How is defunding the police not a political issue?

  20. Emiline Bellé | June 9, 2020 at 2:11 PM | Reply

    He’s not “trying”… it is politicized. Everyone knows it. Specifically the demonkratz
