    The thing about America is the fact that everyone is NOT on opposite sides on every single issue. Nod if you agree: Everyone wants respect, meaningful work, healthcare, clean food and water. There. That didn't hurt did it? There's more than just one side to most issues too. That means leaning the facts, discussing the facts, treating other people's perspective and experience and opinions with the respect you'd like them to treat yours, etc. Let's lose the labels, shall we? I can't wait to vote in November.

    One of the biggest problems we have in this country is that "smart" people aren't at the wheel. You don't have to be that smart to be a con artist or a grifter, you just have to be void of conscience and moral compass. We have legitimized ignorance and given it a seat at the head of the table.

    It would be hard to find another American white male who despises Trump as much as I truly do, and I have ever since his self-enriching adulation by the American Mass Media started back in the 1980's. It bears pointing out, however, that audiences are so ready to laugh at any and all things Trump that even when Trevor Noah supposedly "corrects" a Trump tweet (at minute 2:10 or so), Trevor got it wrong and the Trump miscreant got it right (even if probably by sheer luck). If this Trump Thing-in-Chief did tweet "...is happening TO different degrees at other networks," then why did Trevor laugh as he mocked the spelling of the word "to" as having "one o" in Trumps's tweet? The word "to" is absolutely THE correct version of "to", "too", or "two" to have been used. Talk about cheap laughs when American Rome is burning down all around us Roman Plebeian Americans! Why didn't someone at Comedy Central catch this and EDIT OUT THAT GLARING ERROR, or post less of this video to omit this alt-right fuel-to-the-fire that INDEED THERE IS AN "ANTI-TRUMP" BIAS IN LIBERAL MEDIA - as well as among "liberal" audiences? "THOSE LEFTIES WILL LAUGH AT OUR DEAR LEADER NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS," will be just another hysterical scream voiced by the likes of Lindsey Graham and Steve Bannon on Breitbart - but in this instance, those anti-democracy racist, misogynist, and homophobic hate mongers will be 100% correct! Why give them this unforced error of a gift?

    Trevor...pssst...Sara Beth has posted what my limited view of the world thinks is worthy of being worked into the public consciousness (unless I've missed it). For your convenience, I have quoted her here: "So, this is what a civilized adult conversation looks like👍 unlike our toddler in chief Agolf Twittler." Granted, this Oregon Roots Purple Widow is better than I expected which may have enhanced my affection for this well-crafted referential, still, can you squeeze it in somewhere?

    Damn. I've not noticed it before but Lester Holt is one intelligent looking man for which his spoken thoughts do nothing to dissuade. I found myself thinking, "Jeez, I'd vote for this guy for POTUS." And he seems almost the perfect blend of us somehow being both Black and White at the same time with NO conflicts whatsoever. This is a man I'd like to have dinner with albeit I suspect a lack of zeal on Mr. Holt's part would preclude that. And his persona is almost scarily trustworthy. My cynical side wonders if that is the man or if that is the man's 'talent'. I choose the man. THIS man has the gravitas of a President.

    • xseqer
      xseqer 7 months ago

      Thanks, Rhonda, but I'm looking at Mr. Holt through White eyes raised in Chicago a long time ago. Wikipedia comments: " His maternal grandfather was of half English and half Indian descent.[11]" although what "Indian" means here is unclear. Maybe it's that Native American/ancient Asian flavor which bonds Black and White so well in him to my eye, that steady river-flow like calmness that you know is teeming with life beneath the surface. I'm not very good at this, am I? And if you can find any people in Africa who look like Mr. Holt, please tell me as I'm trying to build a mental physiognomic map of Africa similar to that which I carry for Europe. Thanks again.

    I used to think "Wow, what a coincidence - I knew a Lester Holt growing up!" Then my dad (and wikipedia) informed me that the fellow I knew was *this* Lester Holt's father! I think I met the above Lester Holt once or twice when he was on vacation from college. I didn't know him, but I did know his parents. I'm not surprised he's turned out to be such a decent human being. I know there are things we would disagree about, but he's so even-handed in his approach to reporting that I respect him quite a bit.
    His mom and dad were both intelligent, thoughtful, respectful of others' beliefs, and *incredibly* kind people. They were the sweetest couple, and they had no problem having a civilized conversation even if they disagreed. They LISTENED to the person with a different viewpoint instead of interrupting or just "waiting to talk." It was an honor to know them, and the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

    The job that this guy is doing is some of the most important work that is being done right now. Good, honest, in-the-field reporting. and it's also important that he openly admits that he has a bias, so that he can be aware of it and try to avoid it. Most people just say "of course I don't have a problem with black people" without realising that they, like almost all of us, do in fact have an implicit bias even if their intentions are good. So Cudos to you, Lester, you really do do some important work!

    It's horrifying that the president of a nation targets journalists by name and spreads lies about them. Trump has always wanted to take people to court fit libel.

      +Margo Romero I really don't think that people are "falling for it" as much as they have fallen for him .
      The political arena knew most of this already and some every day layman .
      But the political arena is filled with people who have a mastery knowledge of political and financial laws becuase they made them for people like Donald and themselves . While tossing other moral political issues to the public on both sides of the political spectrum .
      Yeah most voters will never be recognised by thier party for endorsment unless you're already steeped in this other recreational million dollar tax break club
      . Except for in the local political arena where the Home town hero can sometimes be the poster child for the average red or blue shirted lay person .
      .

ALL of which are Easily verified as Lies, has locked children in cages, has given Trillion$ in tax breaks to the elite 1% of Americans, has removed all environmental regulations that keep us safe so that his cronies in big business can make more money, had a personal lawyer & campaign manager who went to Prison for crimes against our country, Refuses To punish Russia for meddling in our elections and is now trying to blame China to divert peoples attention to the fact that Russia is Still meddling and just pushed through a judge that doesn’t believe a POTUS can be indicted for crimes..

      rancher12121 you are right. They would rather bite their nose off to spite their face or throw away their vote on an independent that's not going to win anyway.
      The stoic look on these college student's faces when the reporter asked if they were going to vote was unreal. They didn't even give a verbal answer, and only a few just shrugged with the most minimal movement to say no. Only one couple walked up and actually spoke, but still said no. I'm afraid it's a waste of money sending them to college if they aren't learning to have an opinion or passion of their own. When you look at what is trending, it's more than sad.

    Trevor Noah has done it again. Made me interested in a person who I've always felt disinterested in.

    trump will prove much more deadly than #911BUSHworldCOLLAPSER.
    i would give them both, mine, for a republican president as solid as #USArescuerOBAMA.

    I think it was meaningful to have congratulated him. I like what Trevor does & says even when it's subtle it speaks volumes. He addresses nasty tweet then basically wraps interview up by congratulating Lester's success, so there's no confusion this man is to be celebrated.

    I’m sorry but the entire problem with the media is the fact that they all have opinions. And it started with just opinions and has evolved into sides. There job should
    Be delivering Facts to the people. Unfortunately opinions are wayy more profitable. Smh

      horseshit! there are plenty of fact based outlets available. problem is most people are too lazy to seek out and verify. most will just settle on the most blondes and flashy graphics...for many it is only entertainment and hooray for our side.

      Fox News created opinion journalism. Then calls everyone else fake news for having a different opinion. It's not about what happened in the world today, what matters is my worldview. Throw in speculation, argue about what hasn't happened yet, call it news. Thanks Bill O'Reilly RIP

      Even if it's just facts, the other side will say that it's biased because media companies are owned by people who are more or less public with their own political opinions. That's why it's our job to correlate infos from different bias, politics and countries to find something close enough to the truth.

      Lester Holt, I miss the old days when you used to talk about the Russian Collusion Hoax and Stormy Daniels. What happened, Lester, your fake stories ran out of stream? Also, your naive and gullible minions finally came to their senses and woke up. I see you're visiting that creep Trevor Noah.

    So our Supreme Court is no longer "supreme, Mitch is an obvious Mafia Boss and the President is an appointee from Russia. Land of the Free is actually land of the Shake Down. "Superman, Where are you now?"
