Political hitjobs and POV-pushing[edit]

Hi Joreberg. You are adding quotes that are fine in and of themselves, but with sources that are often biased and almost invariably insulting of Trump/Pence, apparently used merely for their journalistic titles which are political attacks and often not even directly connected to the quotations themselves as in this instance or here – surely you can find more neutral sources? Or would that go against your POV-pushing goal here? I note that your descriptions also tend to be POV-pushing and sometimes with no support in the cited sources: for example here you say that the protester who was shoved by the police was "handled brutally" when this is not established and is merely an opinion, one which you are attempting to pass off as Wikiquote's view of what happened. This is classic POV-pushing. I appreciate that you want to make Trump look as bad as possible; my concern is if you keep this up Wikiquote will be the one looking bad. Please read Wikiquote:Neutral point of view. ~ DanielTom (talk) 19:52, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi Joreberg

It's getting pretty lonely at DT without you. Hope everything is OK? Ottawahitech (talk) 03:25, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the great link[edit]

I would not have seen this: if it wasn't for your quote earlier today on DT. I am getting a crash course on American politics and elections, and now about which stations to watch. When I started this journey a short few weeks ago, I thought CNN & MSNBC was pro democrats, Fox & CNBC pro Republicans. I have since learned that it is much more complicated and that all stations have good and bad anchors (and a few reporters)

I believe I first saw Bob Woodward and Jonathan Swan of Axios interview Trump on Fox. Jonathan Swan was almost begging Trump, explaining to him that he was hoping to portray him in a good light -- to no avail. I was thinking back to this interview with Trump when I was watching Maria Bartiromo employing the same techniques this morning, again to no avial. Trump seems to plow right over anyone who is trying to steer him into more productive behavior. Chris Wallace is another excellent Fox interviewer that Trump managed to turn off.

Even the great Bob Woodward ended up criticizing Trump, something he said he had never done before, something self-respecting reporters shy away from. Great reporters report the news not make the news, something that seems impossible when dealing with Trump.

Then there was the failed Sixty Minutes program when Trump walked off in a huff...

Anyway it looks like I am out of luck, since I don't believe I'll be able to watch Newsmax where Trump is heading to (until he leaves them in a huff). If it wasn't for COVID I would have been thoroughly entertained by all these Trump maneuvers, but as it stands it is plain SADǃ

Impeachment hearings[edit]

Hi Joreberg,

I cannot find any videos of the explosive evidence unfolding during the Second impeachment of Donald Trump. I think it will illustrate the situation better than any quotes. o you know of any? Cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 01:32, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
