Look, just because you're butthurt over people not falling for your Hillary Defense Thread, don't take it out on me. I see her for exactly what she is and no amount of deflection or excuses is going to change that.
How you can close your eyes to what she's done and what she will do to this country simply amazes me. But, like I said, take your ire out on someone else. I simply do not care about your opinion.
Since Smith Mundt was repealed, propaganda is legal Also the news media can legally lie. They do daily, all of the mainstream news outlets have been caught in flat out lies.
So even if DC purposely lied, what would make this more offensive than any other news outlet?

So it's okay that DC lies because in your opinion other media outlets are lying as well.
Has it occurred to you that the answer to bias in the mainstream media isn't to start sucking down propaganda from drastically worse alt media outlets?

Oh boy ATS is up in arms about the possibility of Hilliary saying something about a 'news' website and their right to report the news all while someone who will not be named does it weekly and has literally talked about opening up laws to be able to go after those that speak out against him....

Gosh the media lying? You don't say? We better get in there and correct the record for her. She already has enough "vast right wing conspiracies" to fend off.
Out of all of the lies, misconstrued words, out of context reporting, and outright propaganda, this is the one you choose?
This really isn't a story. Every single major media outlet is full of feces. I guess someone on the other side of the table finally decided to fire back with the same tactics.
Everything has gone completely insane. I am only in my thirties and the world is a completely different, and more messed up place when I entered adulthood. It seems like things are spiraling downward out of control.
The press's failure during the Reagan years suggests that the time has come for a fresh debate on its role within American society. For no matter who is elected President in 1988, the quality of press coverage and therefore of the nation's political debate and its democratic process promises only to get worse unless the men and women of the press return to first principles and live up to the concept of a free and independent press first upheld some two hundred years ago by the American Revolution. Perhaps this is too much to expect from employees of the profit-obsessed corporations that now own America's news organizations. But, in a land that once produced the likes of Adams, Paine and Jefferson, that is a bitter thought indeed.
