    Don Lemon is such a pompous ass. He is not honest and is not on our side. He has this huge chip on his shoulder about race. He can never be criticized or corrected about anything he always comes off that he is the one deciding what goes on the air, which is total bullshit. He and Anderson are two of the most self obsessed people on TV.

    Truth is; there is a segment of the white population who can't stand seeing a black man having the power and authority that Obama held as president. That's why the Obama's endures so much disrespect. Now that Trump is president, they feel comfortable expressing their hate and bigotry openly.

    I appreciate CNN for their attempts to present a balanced reporting of the news. However, IMO, they give too much leeway to the Trump surrogates. If they want to present both sides of an argument, that is perfect. Unfortunately, the Trump surrogates simply lie, spin, or divert attention away from his likely crimes. So I often wonder what is the point of bringing on people who you KNOW are going to lie??? Kellyanne Conway, Jim Jordan, David Urban, etc. have all been caught lying.

    why do Republicans think they can take human rights away from the people they work for I mean the voters, not the companies that bribe them.
    I do not care who they think they are my human right are mine if some out of touch overpaid dickless cult following moron tries to take my human rights away. it is going be a Disaster of epic proportions for them.
    trying to, take people human right away, a huge mistake.
    I do not need a sexually repressed virgin trying to tell me what a sin is.
    no evangelical is going to tell that I cannot get a medical treatment. I need just because they think it is what God wants.
    the religious think abortion is wrong the bible might say it is wrong, so why does the Bible use abortion as a religious ritual in the Bible.
    I want someone to show me in the 10 commandments were it state anything about LGBTQ community.
    this is a simple question about the LGBTQ community.
    in the Book of Revelations, god curated everything.
    so if God curated everything. then he curated the LGBTQ community.
    if god curated LGBTQ people then he wanted them, or did God make a mistake? ether god wanted them or god fucked up. I believe God is perfect he does not make mistakes but people do just like all the people that think being LGBTQ is a sin
    I also want, someone to answer these question.
    from the time of Jesus through to 12 century why was it ok that two people of the same sex to marry?
    why from Jesus time threw to the 12-century people go married not in a church but by the ruler of the lands?
    in the bible I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. so why do these preachers still con people out of there hard earned money?
    my opinion is that these preachers do not worship God/Jesus they worship the all mighty dollor, cash, big houses, the newest jet plane.
    above are my opinions on what i wrote.

    The problem is, CNN's "down the middle" coverage is still viewed as "liberal" by everyone on the right - so it makes real leftists seems crazy since they are further left than CNN. Trying to stay neutral only glorifies the wrong side and makes the factual side seem crazy. Make a stand FOR THE TRUTH.

    First off I think trump is a piece of shit but saying he is the one that did this is disingenuous, this has been happening as far back as I can tell since 2010. It may have gotten worse but we were already separating thousands back in the Obama admin. So Don saying this is about people losing privilege isn't holding up to me seeing as Mr. Obama is a mixed man who would of been in charge of immigration policies, since for some weird reason it is under the executive branch and not the judiciary.

Republicans have NO family values or moral compass. If you are not Native American you are an immigrant. Shame on Republicans! Congress needs to Amend the US Constitution to elect the President by direct popular vote. End the electoral college system that gave us Putin's puppets Trump and Pence. Fox propaganda is the fake news. Don Lemon is the real news.

      Ok! Educate me! Please give me your definition as I am anxious to begin school. What I mentioned are facts! Every fucking one of them and I'll start with free speech. Why do the Progressives try and stifle people's right to free speech? Ben Shapiro cannot even show up in places like Charlottesville. Why does ANTIFA attack people who aren't bothering anybody but rather just doing their own deal? They savagely attacked a group of free speech advocates/Constitutionalists at UC Berkeley in March of 2016. They're featured on multiple on this site attacking people simply for being Republican. Sounds a lot like the brown shirts of Nazi Germany to me.

    As a white woman, I am aware that I have a level of privilege in society, but to me, I see no reason why what I have couldn't be equally shared with everyone. I like the rights I have, but do they have to be exclusive to me and my color? How would it take away my happiness to let all colors have the same (white) privilege? I realize the word implies special treatment or value, but it shouldn't have to. We can all have the same rights and privileges without it taking away the value of what those rights mean for my voice and my experience. Blah blah... I'm rambling. What I mean is: Holy cow, white people--quit feeling so threatened by the idea that we could all be treated equally in the eyes of society? It doesn't take anything away from you except a FALSE sense of superiority.

    Excellent point about the leveling of the playing field feeling like discrimination. And well put.
    If you want to convince people to give up their power, it is wise to acknowledge that it can become discrimination instead of leveling. To make these changes smoothly, we need to be able to discuss where that line is.

    Most of Don Lemon is great. But down the middle coverage is the cancer that got us here in the first place. Most of the time one side is factually right, and one side is factually wrong. Calling it 50/50 and giving a "one side says this, the other side says that" level of reporting is disingenuous and not actually news. It's why we have the blurred line on reality we have. Because Republicans have wantonly lied for decades and the media has treated their blatant lies as just as valid as objective reality.

    CNN needs to understand that their obligation should be to the “truth”, which would not align with “up the middle” as trump is an astonishing liar. The figure heads of the media like Lemon, are just smart enough to fool idiots and tow a corporate line, they could care less about protecting democracy. Don’t believe me? Why do they keep having a disgraced liar like Kelly Conway on? Shut out the liars and get logical respected experts who have no affiliation with the lying sick regime.
