Can the MSM be punished for their "election tampering"?

Knowing that is 100% factual,


We know nothing of the kind. The media didn't steal DNC emails and post them on WikiLeaks.

In fact, the media gave Donald Trump millions in "free advertising", taking his on air phone calls, reporting on anything and everything he did and said, non-stop, for 18 months. He was entertaining, and no one took him seriously, until the very end, when the "liberal media" started calling him out on lies and asking tough questions, which is what they should have been doing from the start.

Donald Trump owes his win to the "liberal media".



Listen to this BS. They cover the news, a candidate and call it free advertising. Truth is they had to cover it or their blatant leanings would have been very clear. Cant run a propaganda program like that. Trump hung them on their own petard. Plus they are so fat headed they figured they were the ones giving Don enough rope......here Don have some free rope.

Besides was Hillary not getting free advertising as well? Screw these press outlets.

Did you know Ben Carson was running for President? You would never have known given how little air time he got during the primaries compared to Trump. Did you know that Jeb Bush was running? If you did, it was because the press reported on how awful another Clinton-Bush election would be. Did you know there was a guy named Johnson running? If you did, it was because he didn't know where Aleppo was in an interview. Did you know there was a Stein running? If you did, it is because of what she did after the election. President Elect Trump is literally (still) a contract player for NBC. The media bent over backwards to portray him as the "underdog." Trump won by being the "reality show candidate."

Clinton amassed millions more votes. How does that factor in to your silly theory?

They had to drown out Carson. Count have him screwing up the republican racist narrative they were spinning. Besides they could have covered Carson if the wanted to......but they really didn't want to.

Clinton amassed more votes in states where people read newspapers. Trump won in areas where people rely on television and the internet for information. Interesting coincidence?

Not really. 90% of the coverage on all those mediums were negative towards Trump.

Airing what a candidate actually says is not "negative coverage." His racism, misogyny, and bullying are what appealed to his base. Leaked documents reveal that was the campaign's strategy:

Why wasn't more made of this leak?

Trump’s campaign strategy during the 2016 primary season specifically targeted voters who “have been called ‘stupid,’ ‘racists,’ and ‘bigots'” by “elites,” according to the memo.


You do realize that the SJW obsessed Ruling Establishment has labelled all non-SJW's all of that plus a whole lot more words along those lines (you know what words I'm talking about, dontcha).

Anyone not PC is been all but officially declared as certifiable of all of that, as well as anyone against Obama, Hillary, their wars they started like in Syria, along with thing like multinational corporatist "Globalism" (that the left absolutely worships nowadays).

Why am I asking? Of course you realize that but you get off on demagoguing the forums with all of your efforts no matter how wrong the side of truth you are on.

Every time I turned on CNN, they had a pro-Trump team arguing with a pro-Hillary team.

Well, I didn't say that. But in my opinion, making Trump look good would have required outrageous bias. Trump made himself look bad, and the media played it up because it was good for ratings.

I did, however, see plenty of people saying good things about Trump on CNN. They had paid Trump shills on that channel, arguing with paid Hillary shills.

Morning Joe Scarborough sure didn't! None of the big names at Fox News did either!

They covered it enough, but in a way that has had an obvious effect, even now. Racist, sexist and mysoginist campaign that appealed to his base? That's what the media said. It appears this coverage appealed to you more than his voters.

Any other examples, or just the one? Over 90% of the coverage of Trump was negative.

You didn't click on the link, did you? Here, let me help you with your poor research skills:

Yes, they actually use the phrase "safe space." Comedic gold. Why did the media pay more attention to the Podesta leak than to this one? As the Russians say: "We may never know the truth." But in any case, you can relax now. Now that you've outed yourself as a "Low P" voter, you can stop pretending to be smart.
