Should We Expect an Uncivil, “Civil War of Words” in the Republican Party Next?

As we rapidly approach the Republican presidential caucuses and primaries in about two months, should we expect to see an uncivil, “civil war of words?”  It’s true that Trump and Cruz appear to be methodically moving ahead in the presidential nomination race.  Please see my blog post from last week for more details on Trump and Cruz.  If that continues to turn out true, no “establishment” Republican candidate will be nominated by the Republican Party.  It’s reasonable to expect that Republicans and the mainstream media will not rollover and give up.  Starting very soon, we can expect to see an…

Republican Presidential Candidates vs. Mainstream Media – Who Will Win?

The Politico article about Ben Carson opened up the issue again.  The recent Republican presidential debate hosted by CNBC and their relentless attack questions fueled the issue too.  The reality is that the mainstream media makes no pretense of being objective journalists any more.  They are partisans with a definite agenda.  They are attacking the Republican presidential candidates.  Of course, progressive and socialist candidates get essentially a free ride with softball questions.  The Republican presidential candidates versus the mainstream media (MSM) – who is going to win?  Let’s talk about the issue now … How Does the Mainstream Media (MSM) Work Today? The MSM spend their time…
