Also, for the record, I have no problem with gay characters. I have a problem when they are shoehorned into the story for no reason, especially when its illogical and not reality.

Like Omar in Thr Wire.

How much is rent in that bubble that you live in?

That isn't to say that they aren't putting their own spin on the story though, but I think that goes back to some level of political bias with all media.

Seriously? Anyone who thinks the news media listed above doesn't have an agenda is fooling themselves irregardless of what Trump says or doesn't say

I would agree that left/right bias certainly exists to some extent with all media outlets, but let's not pretend like Trump isn't using the term fake news to try to discredit stories that portray him unfavorably even if they are entirely credible/sourced/vetted.

I think DannyGs point is that there is ridiculous actual fake news generated and circulated by both sides, but very rarely are these stories being peddled by the outlets that Trump claims to be dishonest and unfair.
