    Hall Of Famer
  1. The Game of Thrones

    The Expanse is someone else’s baby. But Syfy is making a TV show based on one of his sci-fi books called Nightflyers. Not sure if he has any real involvement in production or they are just licensing his material. GRRM is also working with HBO on multiple GoT spinoff/prequel series.
  2. The Game of Thrones

    I think he falls more to the eccentric, methodical side. He has never struck me as self-absorbed or dickish. His story is so incredibly detailed that I think he fixates on it being perfect in its complexity. But I do think he has so much power that no publisher can foist an editor on him or make him stick to a schedule. And R'hllor only knows when the hell he will get this next book finished, much less book 7.
  3. How Trump Wins by Bashing the News Media

    Bring back the fatass...
  4. How Trump Wins by Bashing the News Media

    Trump was on CNN constantly during the campaign, dummy. The free media coverage is part of why he got elected.
  5. How Trump Wins by Bashing the News Media

    Me either, but the Washington Post did cover it, so that was the answer to his question
  6. The Game of Thrones

    Sorry fellow book readers, GRRM has announced Winds of Winter will not be released in 2018. Though on a marginally positive note, the first chapter of his Targaryen history Fire & Blood will be released this November. Cause, you know, he has nothing else pressing that he needs to be working on...

  8. Comey Memos

    Feel free to post the smoking gun any time now...
  9. How Trump Wins by Bashing the News Media

    It’s a shame the liberal media always cover up scandals by Democrats and there is zero negative coverage. I mean, they totally hushed up Clinton's Lewinsky affair where it was never mentioned. They never covered Hillary's emails once during the 2016. And not a peep about Obama's reverend in 2008...

    You can’t trust the GAO. That’s part of the Deep State trying to bring Trump down!

    Yeah, that’s what all the Trump Suckers think...
  12. How Trump Wins by Bashing the News Media

    See... I already had an obvious explanation for that... Hitler gets a lot of negative press. So does Timothy McVeigh. And AIDS. Biased journalism?

    Please provide specific examples of the kinds of bias that you are referring to as evidence. Nixon called the mainstream media biased for their “attacks” on him, but they were generally right about him. Were they biased for reporting on Watergate? Were they biased for their reporting on Vietnam, which today is universally seen as a disaster? Were they biased on his handling of the economy, which caused major inflation? Were they biased about his support of pro-desegregation forces in the south, which was absolutely true? It simply isn’t bias to report negative things when there is a negative thing to report. Do people have bias? Sure. Do different media sources have some level of bias coming from the top? Sure, to some extent, but in the case of most of the mainstream so-called liberal media it’s pretty minimal. Not remotely like the right wing bias of a Fox News.
  14. Why did Kyle get fired

    High school girls maybe...
  15. I got fired

    The timing seems suspicious. “Fired” right before the draft? Hmmm...
