Trump would give his left tiny hand to get rid of the media for not supporting him and his non-stop stream of lies. Ooooh! FAKE NEWS! Which is code for "news that I find to be distasteful." He wants to have a state press like Kim Jong Un does in N. Korea where Kim is actually venerated as a sort of god. BLECH! Thanks all the same, but I prefer freedom of the press AND freedom of religion.
1st. I doubt you ever watch FOXX.

2nd There are LOTS of non repuubs on FOXX and IF you watched, you would know it.

3rd Most libs are mad that have the ENTIRE alphabet media and NOT all TV. Then we have print media which is dominated by the left and they still aren't happy.

If they had their way, that would shut down FOX, Rush, Hannity, etc, they tried and failed.

Hell, they couldn't even compete against Rush even with the DNC financing Air America. All the dems were to bust watching Oprah and jerry springer.

Whenever I do a political search I have to go through multiple pages to find anything BUT the liberal media outlets, IF i am lucky to find anything at all.
the internet has made it much easier to fool people.

He's giving his opinion. And? Agree or disagree, listen or don't listen. Who cares? It's just opinion.

Obama opined about Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Dubyah opined about MSM. Reagan made joks daily about WaPo and NYT. And?
"Does the President not enjoy the same 1st Amendment protection of his natural, individual right to free speech that everyone else does?"


The dems were happy when FRD started and mastered using the radio, when JFK dominated TV and now are upset Trump has mastered Tweeting.
They can't STAND Trump going around their cohorts in the media and does NOT have to worry about them mis-quoting and and taking things out of context. He doesn't NEED them and it is driving them crazy!

a little outdated but still true


this helps to explain why there is so much bias in the media...


if you had a hunch the news system was somewhat rigged and you couldn't put your finger on it, this might help you solve the puzzle.

abc news executive producer ian cameron is married to susan rice, national security adviser.

cbs president david rhodes is the brother of ben rhodes, obama's deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

abc news correspondent claire shipman is married to former whitehouse press secretary jay carney

abc news and univision reporter matthew jaffe is married to katie hogan, obama's deputy press secretary

abc president ben sherwood is the brother of obama's special adviser elizabeth sherwood

cnn president virginia moseley is married to former hillary clinton's deputy secretary tom nides.

ya think there might be a little bias in the news? ya think?




boom!

I often google a story I have seen somewhere else on a conservative site to see who else is reporting it. Often...crickets.

Do you mean like Russiagate was a Hoax or that Hillary was going to lose the election?

9. "I think the press has lost all credibility, much of it. But it's lost a big part of it. I mean, a very substantial part of it, lost all credibility."
So, the media has lost all credibility. Actually just most of the media. But all of the media has lost a big part of its credibility. Actually it's a "substantial" part of the media. But they've lost all credibility, that's for sure. Got it?
That’s quite a contradictory mouthful.

The chance of that being coincidental is zero.

Furthermore, there is hard scientific proof that frequencies emanating from televisions literally entrain the human brain, inducing a catatonic state which is more susceptible to such ďsubconscious programmingĒ.

So, no, the media isnít providing what the audience demands, itís providing what it wants to implant.
Your explanation sounds like a sequel to "They Live" (starred Roddy Piper if you didn't know).

Brainwashing the American public sounds like a conspiracy theory to me. That would mean somebody is paying them off then. ANd if that's true, then hopefully there's a study of revenue from advertising per network to prove that any left propaganda media outlet is supported only by companies who subscribe to the rhetoric of the left, and the same goes for the right.

You believe what you will, and I'll believe what I do.
