I've had it with mainstream media! Don't they know that they will be the first to be censored or shut down (if not executed) should the former guy win, or steals a win, in 2024?!

Yup!

“A story the corporate media can no longer ignore”

Listening to his confusing sweaty speeches. Confusing names.

I’m voting for grandpa Jo🇺🇸 who is sharp as a tack!

Yup, like I said before tertiary syphilis is very hard on an elder brain. <G>

And don’t forget: Trump now believes that Hungary borders both Ukraine and Russia.

Considering the NY Times swallowed the Gaza Hospital misdirection reporting, are they really asking us to make a age determination between competent leadership and an absolute loon? The bus has left the station. Corporate media credibility is on a downward trend and the people are already embracing alternative sources via the Internet. I will give you the increase of disinformation, but discerning news seekers will figure out what's credible more often than not.

I agree entirely with your post, Michael, that for some reason the corporate media has chosen to bear down hard on President Biden's age while ignoring the fact Donald Trump isn't that much younger and is showing serious signs of mental deterioration -- although I said eight years ago Trump was suffering from mental impairment.

Also, this far out, polls mean nothing. Also, significantly, I'd like to see some serious issue-oriented polling from selected bellweather states. I live in Arkansas. All the people I know say "Biden will lose if he's the candidate." Yes, I agree with them -- to a limited extent: Biden will lose the State of Arkansas. Period. No question about it.

However, I'm watching Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and a few other states. They determined the election in 2020 and they will determine the 2024 election, I believe.

To put it mildly....⸸RUMP is no Logan Roy, so his "Succession" ends on Tuesday, November 5, 2024.

Bye Don.

Regular media, traditional media, mainstream media, shit by any other name attracts flies same as the snow-capped pale pinheaded Pence does. Bah humbug !! on both sides-ism, wanting a horse race. I think correct memory, 2017, Brit Hume on DJT “He’s pivoted, he is now Presidential because xyz”. What a load of crap!! Regular media gave SO much air time to DT due to his outrageousness, they invalidated themselves long ago.

Trump's age is huge problem for Dems. I really worry he isnt going to make it another 12months, the guy's brain is turning to mush before our eyes. Family history of dementia. If he does make it, we can expect a massive Dem victory in the WH and Congress. If Trump becomes too befuddled and lost even for his cult to believe in? The GOP will slide Youngkin in there and he very well may win thru simply being younger than Biden. The majority of white voters are ALWAYS looking for ANY excuse to vote GOP, no matter how obvious it is that Dems are doing the hard, good work for the country. Show them any candidate 20+ years younger than Biden and they'll have found their excuse.

Yes, we need to be rooting for Trump to stay semi-coherent and atop the GOP field.

You nailed it, Michelangelo, yet again! I’ve been screaming at the TV for a long time, “ and of those Democrats ‘concerned’ about Biden’s age, how many would vote for Trump or forego voting because of that concern?” We’ve learned in the last decade or so that all polling is flawed, not only polling this far out. All the cheeseburgers and Cokes aren’t doing DJT any good, that’s for sure, while Bikin’ Biden is working out nearly every day.

The idea of Trump being in peril (in any way) fills me with delicious schadenfreude.

There are a couple of factors as to why the corporate media is obsessed with Biden's age while downplaying the orange slobfather's mental decline. The main one being ratings and views, which is why they followed his speeches early on and did some really stupid coverage like follow his SUV ad nauseum to the courthouse in Georgia. Another one being that a lot of the owners and executives at these media companies were his cocktail party buddies back in the day, which is why he keeps getting recent townhall coverage that most of reporters in said media companies abhorrently object to doing.
