To me, it doesn't matter one bit. But if i am going to hold the press accountable for their lies, then I am going to do the same for trump.

I agree that some employees of the media sure want a raise and climb the reporter ladder so put out stories that they do not double check. However, nothing like this has ever occurred on this scale with any other president at least in the last 10 years. There is, a clear push from somewhere. Someone wants to shame Donald Trump but is failing, as clearly in this video there coming in from all avenues. Estimated numbers, tweets wrongfully putting false thoughts in many minds and clearly paid protests forming in the streets from again people that do not know why they are taking to the streets. I am very aware that many protests are actually full of people being paid to be there. I have had friends paid to do just that (Americans), not that I agree with it. Someone or a group of people are very clearly trying to make a dent, they know the majority of America basically read a title header and thats it, they run with that header. Which could be anything insanely made up. Most people do not read the content anymore. So it is not just a simple mistake or wishing to just post anything outwards, as they are working for news companies which have to give them the say so before they can run a story. They are letting them run them.
.... I do agree however, more cartoons.
Spicer claimed that the number of people using the D.C. Metro this weekend supported his contention that the Trump crowds were massive, but according to The Washington Post, Metro usage was down significantly: 570,000 trips compared to 1.1 million in 2009.

I am of the opinion that the MSM is actually public enemy number one against the citizens of the United States and the world.
More of a threat than the DNC, rioters, Russians or even Islamic Terrorist.
A hidden-hand controlled propaganda arm for something or someone sinister.
Ty for posting this.

I'd love to say this is hilarious but now Donald Trump is the President of the United States of America and he's as thin-skinned as ever, perhaps more. Listening to Sean Spicer try to explain how it just seemed like there were less people because of the grass protection just made me shake my head. Petty. Pathetic. Undignified.
The reporter who tweeted the bit about the bust is a sloppy idiot who deserves ridicule if he reported that the bust of MLK had been removed and in fact, somebody was just standing in front of it. I get it. It's ridiculous for the White House to respond to every jab. It looks weak af. The steaming pile about the tournout was just embarassing.
Nice to know the White House can now be so easily triggered. Jesus.

So we're calling the petty idiocy of Trump a 'backbone' now? What a shameful place we've gotten to over his spiteful campaign (and now only one day into his presidency). Spicer lied about the numbers being the biggest inauguration ever. Them's the facts. Spicer is now Trump's b___h boy that gets the job of delivering all of Trumps petty (and daily) battles. Good luck Spicer, you're gonna need it.
Up next: defending Trumps embarrassing CIA speech.
