A bunch of demorats

Biased opinion it’s not news

Big leftist bias!

This site touts that it’s balanced by stating the number of articles about the Dems and Trump/Rep as being relatively equal. But every single article about Trump is negative. They have never said Trump had done something getting peace in the Middle East, which is an achievement leaders of other countries are nominating him for the Noble Peace Prize. He should win this prize and for actually doing something....unlike Obama who was given it for breathing air.
