And this arvcat character is a great example of the ball-less nature of the extreme right wing faction trying to ruin America democracy as we know it. Fans of the autocrat Trump, but unable to back up anything that spews out of their mouths.TomCat88 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 31, 2020 4:05 pmYeah, that's what I figured!! After days of ducking and hiding I knew you couldn't back it up. Big talk from another poster that can't even put his name in his signature line, so what I expected. Big negotiations the night before, but can't produce on Game Day. Snowflake, parent's basement, and now add lame excuses...looks like I had you pegged.arvcat2 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 31, 2020 3:29 pmHello TomCat88…and why would I ever want to foot your bill? And besides, as you’ve called me a Snowflake living in my parents basement, that would pretty much make me cash poor.TomCat88 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 31, 2020 6:17 amHello? Arvcat? Are still interested in sending me to Portland? Like I said I’m game and I won’t ring up a big tab. Let me know. Waiting to hear back from you.TomCat88 wrote: ↑Thu Aug 27, 2020 5:56 pmAre you talking to me? If so, yes, I’ll accept your offer to go to Portland and report back to you. I’m not going to charge any outrageous rate. I’ll stay in cheap motels and drive out there. Let me know.arvcat2 wrote: ↑Thu Aug 27, 2020 8:46 amWasn’t too long ago that I remember the wall to wall coverage of the Ferguson riots and the whole “hands up, don’t shoot” false narrative shoved down our throats by the media.catatac wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 9:15 pmYa... come on, we aren't talking about the media not covering people spray painting and throwing eggs. We're talking about the multiple videos showing VIOLENCE and CHAOS. How is that not newsworthy? Oh ya, it is. CNN just chooses to not show that because it's very clear it works against the Left agenda.Cataholic wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 6:49 pmCome on Tom. You didn’t think the guy getting attacked by BLM security for helping an innocent bystander was newsworthy? They almost killed him. Do you think if a white security guy smacked a protester, would it have made CNN then? And the articles above about the uneven coverage doesn’t concern you?TomCat88 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 5:10 pmWhen you protest/riot in the streets for days on end and it mostly boils down to spray painting, chanting, breaking windows it loses its newsworthiness. Sorry, that's not a right or left-wing thing, or a CNN or Fox thing. It's just the way it is. Making this about news coverage is about as mediocre as it gets in terms of trying to making a mountain out of a mole hill. If something significant happens, then it should be covered. I don't need a blow-by-blow report on how someone threw an egg at a statue for the tenth straight day.Cataholic wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 11:37 amDid you ever think that maybe Fox is just reporting the NEWS! Why would you believe that rioting in the streets is not considered news and just a normal everyday event that will go away if we ignore it?TomCat88 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 5:55 am
Protesters/rioters/mass killers have one thing in common. They want media attention. The best thing the media can do is ignore them. As long as they get attention, they’ll keep going. If you think CNN is ignoring them for political reasons, then you must think Fox is covering them for the same reason.
I haven’t heard too many people come up with reasonable proposals to bring it to an end. You guys are letting it devolve into a media coverage debate. People need to keep their eye on the ball.
Reminds me of when people thought solving the drug addiction crisis was solved solely by busting users.
As for CNN, did they cover the protestors early on when it met the left’s agenda? YES! After it devolves into just anarchy, it is no longer news worthy??? After an person trying to assist someone else is brutally attacked by a BLM “security” person, that is not news worthy?
There is a media coverage debate because it exists. The negative coverage is unprecedented and will have a real impact on voters.

Anyway, you can respond again and I'll let it go.
I propose that an intrepid local Montana journalist travel to, say downtown Portland, for a week and be our eyes, ears, and boots on the ground. Only caveat is that said journalist daily shift starts at sundown. Any suggestions for the assignment?
Surely you are well connected in Portland with your journalist brethren and you could shack up with one of them. Or perhaps pitch a tent with the homeless to really get the vibe of the city (and a story). Transportation? Follow the Lewis & Clark trail on foot, horseback, and dugout canoe (another story). You’ll still get there before the protesters turn violent with plenty of stories to fund your trip with.

Let me know if you're shamed into changing your mind and can back up all that talk with an advance on your allowance or maybe you can roundup some of your fellow Oakley sunglasses wearing, sun burnt bros and get them to chip in. I'll gladly go. Not a problem at all.
So run your mouth some more arvcat. It’s great comic relief watching you dry up and blow away like dog crap in the wind.
