Never heard a president call the media the Enemy of the State, we are in new territory with Trump in the white house.
Levine will hawk his partisan wares on any channel that will have him. You're right - he has zero credibility.

Trump even criticized the Fox/Trump channel when they reported on unflattering polls.

State TV is what he's looking for.

I miss having a president that didn't demand the publics attention 24/7. Trump has exhausted the american people with his neediness.

If you, for whatever reason, decide to audit an undergraduate journalism class you'll identify the problem pretty quickly. The vast majority of people pursuing journalism as a career are doing so for activist reasons. Few even consider objectivity to be attainable or admirable, as they are steeped in post-modernism. For those few who would try to tell the whole story, they often lack subject matter depth and just end up parroting conventional wisdom.

Seeing as how the free press is a form of media, which form of media is destroying the free press? I say this because the dominant Free Press A be oppressing the power and capabilities of the recessive Free Press B.

It must be very confusing for Trump........he thinks everyone should love him, that is what his mommy told him.

Nope. That's you saying it.

Well it's a Trump twitter comment. For this sort of thing I just assume it's false by default and leave the burden of proof to the habitual liar.

The free press isn't Free. It has become a business like any other business. Provide a product that people will buy. maybe it always was.

Trump is correct. People need to also learn the difference between the free press and the fake news MSM.

Having seen the way the media treated Trump right out of the gate, I will never trust or watch any of their garbage again. Before Trump, I at least thought of CNN as a propaganda machine disguised as news, but now I just think it's pure propaganda, they make no effort to hide it now.

I never cared much for Fox news before Trump. I know what they are and what they stand for, I regard them as being porn for conservatives. But now, they don't bother me so much. I'm rather grateful that conservatives like my retired father have a voice of reason they can turn to in this crazy upside down world we live in today.

One of the things that came up in the show was how they got rid of the press. This is relevant to today. All these attacks on the press aren't for our benefit. Personally I wouldn't mind if this show ran 24 hours a day right now. It needs to be seen. What happened in the past could happen again.


Trump is still angry over the Fox poll.
