WDT: Another Nutty Bloomberg News Story

       OMG, another crazy Bloomberg News story catches the fancy of our local Trump hating gatekeepers.
        Sure, bring up a discussion of mental illness in the context of the Trump candidacy but fill it with disclaimers about not knowing if he is nuts.
         Journalism ? No, it's advocacy and a notion that the media has a duty to stop this man.
        Bring back the AP, and spare us the news from the crazy billionaire.
Watertown Daily Times | Calling Trump ‘crazy’ demeans those with mental illness

MSM needs to be prosecuted for running every RED LIGHT previously acknowledged as -'WAY TOO FAR' in their attempts to smear TRUMP. It's seems the 'pathological liar' Hillary Clinton is going to get a free pass by MSM short of a conviction for murder! Mike Flynn 'Middle Class Mike'

Timely post - allow me to wade in ... with this

BREAKING NEWS FROM the DNC..." No, not that DNC.

This DNC:
Dan's News Channel

* Donald J. Trump has a very serious medical condition.

Trump's Affliction.

* The GOP's inquiry about his affliction:

How Long, Donald - the Duration we Mean? /s/ The Nervous GOP.

Jeff, have you even bothered to read the article? Written for the Washington Post (not Bloomberg) by Patrick Kennedy, an advocate for people with mental health issues, the piece argues that casually throwing around terms like "crazy" when criticizing political candidates intimidates people with legitimate problems. This makes it more difficult for them to seek the treatment they need. So the article does not claim or infer that Donald Trump has a mental illness. It admonishes people for linking mental illness with something that should be hated, scorned and/or feared.

Its a way to link Trump to the issue of mental illness and the original post said it was a Bloomberg story. No longer posed.

No, 9:44. The op-ed argues that critics of Trump should stop linking him with mental illness. Here is a link to the original story:
