With the rise of Trump, ATS needs to change their motto to 'Embrace ignorance'-- then it will be perfectly in line with the complete idiocy that has taken over these forums.

The entire opening post is too low energy, sad.

Later you make a claim about freedom of press and the Constitution.

Trump being a private citizen, holding private events, can shut out the press legally (any press he pleases) without violating the Constitution.

I can tell you this, Obama is blaming pro 2nd amendment people on the terrorist attack, he is not blaming radical Islam. Obama is more mad at Trump than he is the terrorist!

If it wasn't for all the leftist controlled media pushing their propaganda, leftists wouldn't have a voice. Just wait till November, then the silent majority will be heard again.

Free press to spread the truth is one thing. Abusing free press to spread lies is another. I would shut them out too if they were lying about me.

Humm... The Obama trolls had to come to the scene... Anyway, so you want us to believe what the Obama supporter press has to say, the same press which pledged allegiance to Obama and of course would try to smear on Trump?...

Hummm, one of those reporters "was waiting for Trump at the stage and a secret service agent told him to get back or he will take his credential"... Really? Did the reporter expected to be treated differently? Since when have any journalists been able to wait at the stage for a President, or candidate for President?

Not to mention that this is coming from the "liberal Canadian media" Vice news...

Humm, what else is happening with some liberal Canadians?... Recently I heard a Canadian woman state on tv, on a news show about people buying houses "buying Alaska", she came to the U.S. and became an American citizen to stop Trump from becoming President...

You have got to wonder how many more "liberal Canadians" and other people have been doing this and the "Obama administration has been allowing them to fast track their "U.S. citizenship"... Since when can people become American citizens so fast? Trump didn't announce his candidacy 5 years ago...

Obama administration moves to let legal immigrants rush citizenship process before 2016 election – by allowing credit card payments instead of cash for fees

I guess that's the same reason why Obama is bringing in so many illegal immigrants and trying to make them legal, so his party can buy more votes.

Obama Plans Fast Track Voting for Illegal Aliens in 2016

Obama amnesty creates loophole for illegal immigrants to vote in elections

The lengths the Obama administration and socialists all over the world go through to try to rig the U.S. election...

The problem being: they are not lying. Trump's buddy Vladimir Vladimirovich has the same problem, with the same solution.

So Trump did suggest Obama was behind the Orlando shooting? If so, where is the quote?

FINALLY someone is standing up against the propaganda machine.

It is common knowledge that the media is owned by a small handful of companies all singing the same tune. All of our government alphabet agencies have media relations departments ensuring that all of the media conforms to the message the people at the top want us to believe. Propaganda is LEGAL in the United States.

REAL journalists that ACTUALLY practice journalism are punished. Whistleblowers are treated like terrorists.

You are the perfect example of this. You constantly parrot mainstream media propaganda. You can see it on this forum every day. People repeating soundbytes. People ACTUALLY VOTING FOR CLINTON. The propaganda machine is in full swing. A good rule of thumb, whatever the media is pushing, the opposite is probably what's best for the general public.

With all of this knowledge, you expect us to feel bad for these media prostitutes? Look at how they have shaped your mind.

You're funny! Criticizing others for having their mind shaped when you parrot back Rush and Alex Jones.

Amber Lyons is a good example. Go check out her story.

Here is a good video that covers exactly how the American media propaganda machine works. It is worth the watch.
youtu.be...


Here is a good article from Greenwald talking about this topic.

You can also find numerous articles relating to our governments abuse of the espionage act.

Our media is 100% controlled. People that don't play ball don't get positions that mean anything. It's all one big script.

Perhaps maybe you need to reread the thread?

The thread is about this:

www.huffingtonpost.com...

Trump revoked WaPo because they wrote an article titled "Donald Trump seems to connect President Obama to Orlando shooting.". Later WaPo changed the article headline because; “We changed the headline shortly after it posted to more properly reflect what Trump said".

So WaPo admitted to sensationalist lying headlines. From what I see, WaPo did lie, and so Trump had a very good reason to blacklist them.



And as I said, free press is one thing if they are covering truth. But free press is another thing they are lying.

So you were saying? What on Earth do you think this thread is about? Maybe you have lost your way?

I think it's funny how you constantly come after me here. I don't know what gives you the impression that I am some lunatic. Rush? Really? You are barking up the wrong tree. I am sorry that my support for freedom of speech bothers you so much.

On topic, you have stated that you are a Libertarian. You know damn well what the media did to Ron Paul. You can hate Trump all you want, I don't like him either, but you can blatantly see what they are doing to him as well.

And yes, I will criticize people that soak up propaganda without thinking for themselves. It's the reason our country is in such a bad position to begin with. I will also criticize actions and words that go against the constitutional values that this country was founded on.

Crazy, I know. Tinfoil hat engaged.

Not 100% - but enough that it's worrisome. And frustrating. And boring... Money has always had an influence on journalism - and bias creeps in - everywhere

Actually interesting reads - but the bit by Greenwald on Elise Labott? She got slapped for saying something that was her opinion. I happen to agree with what she said - so that's not an issue for me. But she does work for CNN - I see both sides

However - what The Washington Post stated was obvious. I guess it all boils down to how we each see (and interpret) Trump :-)

I'm saying that the Washington Post was right to call him on his crap. What he said wasn't ambiguous - he had a target and made a point. Otherwise - it was just babbling. Maybe you can explain what he really meant?

Considering how our "news" all comes from the same source I would say that it is pretty close to being 100% controlled. It is legal propaganda. If our media was not biased, Hillary would be laughed out of the running in a week. The constant messaging that is consumed by the American public forms opinions for them.

This is the reason why the government gets away with everything that they do. This is why people support corruption. People are too busy to run around fact checking and looking for opposing opinions. And then of course when there are people that come out with opposing opinions they are ridiculed. Similar to the CIA coming up with the term "conspiracy theorist" "truther" "vaxxer" etc.

The REALLY SAD part of this is that people claim to not trust the media, but they STILL go along with all of the lies and propaganda.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with prohibiting a media outlet to an event when they have displayed a complete favoritism for the other side, then publish a lie, completely false story. I wish more politicians had the balls to do this. The the Mass Lame Liberal media will diminish. And it is true, readership of the print news is sinking, its because of the slanted lies they try to shove down our throats.

Just like MSNBC and CNN which has gotten so liberal and twisted in their panties it's ridiculous, however, I still watch all of them including FOX and read as much as I can, but you can only take so much BS. Bravo Trump on this one.

Washington post article was opinionated in a subtle way. I would say it wasn't a fair and fact oriented article.
If you are not going to tell the facts instead of your opinion, your career as a journalist should be considered gone. It is a Journalism 101.

Can you point me to the exact quote where Donald Trump
said Obama was responsible?

I can't find it. Thanks.


He didn't trump said that Obama supported Isis by supplting weapons either on purpose or do to incompetance. And he said both are equally as bad. Amd as far as accuracy of the statement all the islamic fighters with US weopons proves the assertion.But certain people will twist what he said to may people think he was talking about the Florida attack. It's getting beyond sad there is a lot to attack Trump over he's by far not the perfect candidate yet people feel that have to make up things.

That's how they play it.

Print up a false claim and convince million to believe it, then change it after the damage is done.

Look how many got sucked in right away.
