CNN

In a 1990 interview with CNN, Trump stated the 'media gets away with murder' and is 'much too protected. he said that 'the difference is that with me, at least they pay some price'. I found his statements Orwellian in nature and he called QUESTIONS and DEMEANOR of reporters INNACURATE when he didn't like the questions. He wasn't really pointing out what was reported.

If Trump were to be elected, I see danger for not just the MSM but all reporters. Sometimes, posters here at ATS, looking at the OPs, are doing a little more than typing on a discussion forum. They are creating a news story. I believe Trump would go after media large and small if they dare say anything wrong about him. His comments do not fit very well wirth the American idea of free speech..

I do not see his opponent doing the same.

Recently, he walked away from 2 reporters when the questions seemed to annoy him. It is a free country, he doesn't have to answer, but to me it makes him look like a diva getting pouty, ala interviews Paris Hilton has walked off of.

Trump has not changed, since 1990. He states in the interview he is 'and always has been thin skinned'. He still talks about suing the media, often.


Donald Trump made news last week when he abruptly walked away from two local television interviews after he was asked tough questions from reporters.


The 1990 interview took place days before his Taj mahal casino was set to open. he had threatened to sue a financial analyst Marvin Roffman who told the Wall Street Journal the casino would fail. It did, indeed fail. Roffman was fired from his firm, he says he believes it was due to Trump's anger. Roffman sued Trump and Trump settled.

Trump was unseuccessful with Roffman, in the end, but he sues people, a lot.

Trump has been nasty even to FOX news reporters. Comments about Megyn Kelly shocked people across the political spectrum.

This video is alarming in how he could attempt to erode free speech based on his mood.

You do not see his opponent doing the same? His opponent has been doing the same for decades! Open your eyes to the media and tell me you honestly don't believe we've already entered Orwell's vision of the media as an official propaganda arm of the establishment (note I'm not going partisan with that statement... the "Inner Party" spans both Reps and Dems.) Look at the extraordinary ends the media is going to to defend their narrative around this election, Russia, Syria, real unemployment numbers, the economy, etc. The "news" they report is so obviously sourced and approved from the globalist establishment that even Nazi Germany would be impressed with how firmly they hold the narratives.

Tabloid gossip? No. It was a real interview. It appears the issues to talk about were pre planned and he still had a fit.

Is she threatening to sue people that say things she doesn't like? Does she un mic herself in a hissy and leave interviews with pre-planned issues to discuss?

You are getting into the 'globalist establishment' ehiich I do not think HRC is the head of, but that goes far afield of the OP.

I believe you agree referring to the underlining "progressive" party.

I've been saying this for years. And to quote someone else, not sure who......

they want the same thing, they just want to get there differently.

You don't think she is part of the globalist agenda, yet all she did when she was secretary was ask for money for the Clinton fountain and pass out favors... And now we know she coordinates with the press... Well Geez, what in the heck reason would she threaten the msm when they are on the same team... But yea, she doesn't threaten them.

Read, open your eyes, deny ignorance....

No, I'm not a trumper

Hillary will continue the Orwellian nightmare that was started by Obama.

I'd rather take a chance on something different than continue on the known destructive course.

Lots of people are part of the globalist aganda and none of us are in that club. She probably is along with Trump. I won't engage in discussion about a charitible foundation here, though.

I don't know she is coordinating with the press. Which press? Some have always had a liberal or conservative bent.

Coordinating is probably better than threatening to punish them when they upset you.

I read almost constantly and of course I deny ignorance.

Don't be silly. Obama didn't "start" anything Orwellian. He started affordable health care in the backassward USA (oooh, how spooky is that!).

Hillary is a Bilderberg and they drive the agenda the MSM want to share with us, I would suggest she is more of a threat to critical thinking and freedom of speech.

So what Trump walked away from reporters when they dared ask a question that wasn't to his liking.

Hillary lied about her e-mails, and about putting the security of your country at risk, proving she cannot be trusted in a position as demanding of POTUS.

Not that I feel Trump is a superior candidate, because I don't, but seriously you guys should be demanding more from the Establishment, change it if required.

It's not because I disagree.

It's because YOU attack everyone who disagrees with you while spouting insults.

I am not going to engage in every topic known to man in this thread. Yes, yes, I know you like to say Bilderberg.

I am trying to focus on a narrow topic here.

Your av always makes me giggle. Difficult to argue with you lol

Threatening to sue? Not to my knowledge. Unleashing the rabid venom of the liars at CTR onto anyone who crosses her? Sure seems that way.


Does she un mic herself in a hissy and leave interviews with pre-planned issues to discuss?

When was the last time the woman was interviewed? When was her last real press conference where honest questions were asked? By my count we are past a year ago...

I don't think she's the head of it, either... but she certainly kneels and prays at their altar and, thus, is not to be even remotely trusted.

Ask yourself this, reldra... Just a few months ago, these same media outlets were in collusion with the evil Clinton trying to take down Bernie Sanders. Every Sanders supporting progressive was screaming from the rooftops about how the media was in Clinton's pocket and that pocket was flush with globalist corporate, MIC, oil, big pharma, and foreign interest money. The fact that the attacks against Sanders were coming from that media and from the establishment in DC was heralded as proof that Sanders was "what America needed" and represented a return to American freedom... Who are these same media and establishment sources attacking with 2, 3, 4 times the vigor and venom today?
THINK... that's all I ask.

So, the press is ok now acting as the propaganda arm of the Democrat party and the political left?

trump has his own internet trolls, paid or unpaid.

I certainly have seen her interviewed, Trympeters lilke to say she has had a seizure during.

If there is an altar, trump is kneeling next to her.

IN regard to Sanders, I was a staunch supporter. I never thought the media did him in, though. never said it.

I do think. I am basing this on what I see of Trump in regard to how he would treat any media based on his whims. .

ok.

First off all, they are not. The ones that were conservative or liberal before, still are.

This is not about that.
