    CNN is throwing away their journalism integrity on the covering of the Trump New York fraud trial. CNN should stop only having analysts on that are so biased against Trump its offensive to watch and have at least a few analysts on that think justly that this case is a disgrace that it was brought and a real travesty of justice. This case is about valuations of real estate on financial statements, valuations to a large degree are subjective regularly one reads or hears in the media about a celebrity that sold some real estate for much less than it was originally listed for sale at. If someone in their financial statements is limited to comparable sale prices how can they get the potential sales price when they sell it because potential buyers will say you valued it lower than the listing price on your financial statement. The law is clear that banks and insurance companies are considered sophisticated business entities it is imputed on them that they know the fair value of property involved in their business transactions when a FS is used because they have the wherewithal the experts, etc. to discover it, they don't get to rely on a Financial Statement. It is alarming that the Attorney General of New York is bringing a fraud case about financial statements that she thinks the submitter of the Financial Statements over estimated the value of real estate what an alarming precedent, people that use and people that prepare such documents are now going to have to be worried about be dragged into court on fraud charges, in all fairness this is a misstep by the Attorney General that on basic fairness grounds should be grounds for impeachment!

    CNN coverage here is an embarrassment to journalism. Anderson Cooper criticizing Trump for Trump's complaint that he has to come off the campaign trail to defend on this political trial and Anderson says well he doesn't have to show up at the trial, it isn't like a criminal trial. Only the stakes for Trump are his family business that he spent his life building and the business that his two oldest sons have largely given their life to operate and depend on to provide for their families, Cooper acting like such a jerk! He doesn't stop with the jerk behavior he calls Trump out for angry remarks about the case to the media before the trial about headline grabbing but he fails to recognize that it is a just counter to AG James' public condemnation remarks before the trial about how Trump is essentially going to get his reckoning!

    CNN is so biased. Having pundits come on their programs saying well Trump claimed on his Financial Statement that his condo in Trump Tower was X number of square feet in size when it actually is a third of the number provided and acting like that is a smoking gun. I'm not a real estate expert but I know condominiums have titles in the local municipality title record office and I am sure banks or insurance companies have the capacity to check Trump's Condominium title in the respective office and discover the actual square footage. And in regards to over estimating the value of the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida I believe the court wants to value it at eighteen million dollars, I am not a real estate or a construction expert but know that is a completely unjust figure because one should be able to value a property at replacement cost and just an ordinary person with ordinary knowledge about construction work would know the cost to build that Club and estate today would be at least one hundred million dollars. I just wish and maybe it is beyond the capacity of CNN management but I just wish this organization would provide fair and balanced journalism that is the role of a Journalistic organization in a good democracy!

    Trump and racism are the only two things that CNN has going for them. If it weren't for that, the only thing they would be left with is doing reports on the Kardashians.....

    Forbes has listed the value of Trump's Mar-A-Lago estate at an estimated $350 million dollars.

    The interesting thing is the U.S. media was never this biased before the 2020 Presidential Election.
    And it wasn't just the news on television. It was like an across-the-board phenomena, with dirty censorship tactics ramping up for the first time by big internet sites like Google, Reddit, and others.

    I mean, of course there has always existed some bias, but they really went "over the line" in ways they would never have dared before, during the lead-up to that 2020 election. Unfortunately I think it may have established some precedents in the media.

    It isn't bias in the media that ramped up.

    It's the outlandish lies, misinformation and distortions from Trump and his allies that ramped up. The media simply pointing out their lies is not bias. It's holding liars accountable.

    The bias we are referring to mostly has nothing to do with that. What you seem to be doing here is a straw man and deflection.

    Of course it's difficult to have a detailed discussion of this overall since there are so many facets to it. To go into detail, we would have to discuss one story at a time.

    For an example of bias all we have to do is look to the fact that you edited my post.

    You're just being silly and ridiculous. Just to let you know, I didn't intentionally edit your post, it must have just been a mistake. And even if I did, I don't see how it would matter. You're taking issue with something that doesn't matter.

    You mean the Trump lies about the Russia hoax or Hunter's Laptop? Or maybe the lie about the government spying on him in New York? And, of course, the big lie that he was trying to shake down Ukraine for some kind of perceived advantage in an election. Well worth the Impeachment, in my opinion ... (not)
