Shepherd Smith gives us an example of the mental hoops libs jump through
It's true.. When you work for FOX News it's HARD to tell the truth... Yet, Shep weaves his way through the rabid ideologues, and manages to speak the truth.

Chris Wallace goes after Trump all the time. He's the opposite of an ideologue.
I just watched Smith do the worst case of mental gymnastics I have ever seen.
His logic was as follows.
Smith: Trump created the environment that caused this.
Wallace: You can't blame Trump for someone else's violence.
Smith: That's not what I did. I only said he created the environment that caused the violence.
He starts at point A, then circles around saying he didn't start at point A while referencing point A, then ends back at point A.
I'm starting to realize why you are a lib.
Side: We are not nuts
As much as someone on here wants to claim it, I'm not a lib, but I can see what Smith was saying. By not coming out and condemning white supremacists last year he created an environment where hatred against Jews was and is seen by some as acceptable. That's not saying he put the gun in that guys hand nor is it saying he is directly responsible for someone else's violence. The responsibility is the murderer's. But when Trump is harsher against the media then he is white supremacists spouting hatred....yeah...he helps to create an environment like what we have now.

Welcome to CreateDebate
CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
