    Oh. I wouldn't know. I don't care about their faces. I watch these shows to get updates on what happened while I was at work.

    Are there any "updates" in the Russian collusion story? Has it changed at all in the last 8 months since Obama said there was no interference?

    I had a rare vacation day and just relaxed at home. Usually I work 11 hour days (roughly 7:30 to 6:30). So I just went back and forth between the networks.

    Every time I went to MSNBC, they had some left wing experts saying there was clearly collusion and the end is near for Trump. Fox and CNN did not do that.

    You haven't said what they didn't report on. Because it was their lead story for 2 days. Just like it was everyone else's. You may want to turn them on once in a while instead of having Fox News tell you what to think. That's what I do. I watch them all.

    They also, like every other network, have provided an enormous amount of information about the man who committed this horrific act. I just learned some more about him courtesy of Greta. She showed the police at his family's home in Manchester, talked about the arrest of his brother, and the reports that there may be a cell in Manchester. What did she miss?

    I didn't even know Obama said that. And yes, there have been updates the last 8 months. Devin Nunes and his press conferences, the firing of Comey, the appointment of Mueller. Maybe you should turn on CNN or MSNBC if Fox isn't carrying those stories.

    MSNBC just reported that they arrested the perp's brother who is in Libya and apparently was part of the plot, and a few women and men in Manchester they are investigating as being part of it. Just now. What else happened in the last hour over in Manchester that they didn't report on that people would want to see?

    Oh, and I gather you missed all of the MSNBC reports about the CBO report on the AHCA. That's what they've been talking about for hours.

    The story about the terrorists brother AND father have been known for hours. Hours. But MSNBC just reported it.

    Yes, every half hour they update the news of the day. And they just did it as they do every half hour. You know, the network that isn't reporting on it.

    I don't know what time they first reported on it. I have a job and can't spend hours a day ogling MSNBC.

    I didn't say MSNBC did not report on Manchester. It just isn't their priority. Their priority is to take down Trump. And the CBO report was available all day; it came out late (4pm eastern time).

    MSNBC and CNN were covering the tragedy non-stop.

    What makes Manchester any network's "priority"? I asked that in all sincerity. It was terrible and it was tragic. No more tragic than some horrific events in this country's history. No other country was reporting on Sandy Hook as a priority, 2 days after it happened. Nor were our own networks, for that matter. MSNBC has the same agenda that Fox News did for the previous 8 years - report on the President's actions with skepticism and negativity. I don't think they make any secret of their disdain for Trump. They aren't alone there.

    Before the CBO report came out, what else was there to report on from Manchester that they had not reported throughout the day? Nobody can say that.

    And with all due respect to those poor young girls and men and their families, we will all share their grief, and then go on. I'm going to guess that most of you can't share the name of a single victim (now you will Google them to try to prove me wrong, and I won't believe it so save your effort). Trump is President and he will remain President when Manchester fades into peoples' memories, like the attacks in France and the shooting of school kids in Newtown.

    I'm a conservative, and I'm not politicizing it. Please don't confuse decent conservatives with the simpleton Trump paranoids. I agree with you that it's disgusting that they are doing this. But the hatred from the Trump fans seems to know no bounds.

    Why are you involving yourself if you don't have first person knowledge of what transpired? I mean, others here watched and also noted what actually transpired. I produced a video. It so happens that CNN is now covering most of what FOX has covered. MSNBC, not so much. They are still looking for Russian collusion.

    About the only thing FOX reported on today, that CNN and MSNBC didn't is FISA Court findings of Illegal spying by the Obama Admin. Political or Normal? Just unfolding. Sort of a big deal if it was for political reasons.

    I have no idea what your post means. I don't have knowledge of what transpired? And others here have watched "it"? I don't know what "it" is. I said, as others have, that the OP is not correct. CNN and MSNBC have reported on the events in Manchester as the details are released. And I have also said it was their lead story for 2 days. It was. No idea what video you're talking about.

    And I just looked at the Fox News website. There is no mention of the FISA court findings. Their headlines don't mention it. They talk about their poll showing Trump approval ratings going down and how their poll shows most American support the special counsel appointment. Where on their website is this supposed big news about the man who (thankfully) is no longer President?

    You didn't offend me. I'm used to it. Lots of people think all conservatives are like these Trumpbots. We aren't. No real conservative would support Trump. He's no conservative, and he's a menace. That's why I didn't vote for him. No, I didn't vote for Hillary either. I don't vote for lunatics.

    That's what I've come to expect from the Trump fans. He lies. They lie. It's some sort of unspoken agreement. He says the sun will rise in the west tomorrow, and they all bob their heads in unison and say how mean the media is for pointing out that he's a liar and then face the west waiting for the sun.

    I'm a conservative who voted for Gary Johnson. I also voted for Marco Rubio in the NH primary. I voted for every Republican candidate for President going back to Reagan in 1980.

    I didn't vote for Trump because if I wanted a corrupt Democrat in the Oval Office, I would have voted for Hillary, his long time best buddy. At least her husband knew how to work across the aisle and he may have helped her do the same thing. Steve Bannon seems to have no interest in doing that.

    Okay, so if you don't want them to report this 24/7, then what are you complaining about? They've been reporting it, and sharing the details as they are made public by the Manchester Police and the intelligence agencies in England. This thread was an abysmal failure.

    Lol. You don't even get what's being talked about in the thread. Talk about uninformed. Go read the op again, apply some critical thinking skills and see if you can figure it out.
