The O.P. is on the mark, shutting down the press coverage of Trump is not a good thing for our country.


Nobody is trying to shut down the press coverage of Trump. The media is just so dishonest, puts out so much fake news, and is nothing but liberal propaganda. That's what is not a good thing for our country. If the media would just actually report the news, rather than be the purveyors of liberal hysteria, we would all be much better off.

So many of you are missing the point. Its about the integrity of real journalism. You guys maybe smart enough to see through the bs but do you think everyone else is? Deliberately brainwashing entire generations is OK for you guys? Got it..

“The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”

I don't know, it doesn't seem like hysteria to me, it just seems like the truth. The media are liberals, clearly they are part of the opposition to Republicans, which is why their "news" coverage is so dishonest. I do agree Bannon has a big mouth, but most of what he says is accurate.

Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.

Sean Spicer and Donald Trump want a media that always agree with everything they say and never challenge the legitimacy of any statement.

Anything other than that is slammed as "fake news", especially anything that can be construed as direct criticism.

Unless you're a "Yes" man to everything #DonaldTrump says or does, you're fake news.

Then you just may be stupid enough to do the Government's job for them. You've been brainwashed into believing that the media is propoganda and that everything the President says is unquestionably the truth.

The media is full of crap, everybody understands that, it was crap when Obama was president, but when you have a blatant deceiver and liar then the media has to do its job.

We should have a state run media so we can get the real truth like in North Korea, China and Venezuela.


That's exactly what we've had for the last 8 years and they are lising their power and influence.

guys i'm real confused about something
can someone just quickly explain to me why so many of you are talking about The Press like they're some sort of unified party, some monolith of enforced views all marching in lockstep
when in actuality
every publication makes decisions themselves on what to write and how to write it
and actually all viewpoints are represented in the media
like??? there is a disconnect here i am not getting???

Well I think the farthest things go as far as I can trace is to the video of the CNN reporter who was told Trump would not answer their question and almost threw CNN out of the press conference. If Trump's behavior continues down this path, it would be limiting the media access to him. He has also put gag orders on thousands of scientists, including from the EPA. He won't let the EPA release research data until it is gone through political reviews to make sure that no science that could harm Trump will harm him.

These actions are the ones I'm talking about - Trump is already limiting access to the press. There was one other article...

No, when the media laid down on the Iraq war( the original sin of our generation) thoughtful people, particularly from the left, denounced them.


The right were generally all right with the press then since it supported their dirty war

And I don't care about the past. We can't change it. Only the present and the future matters, and I don't know how anyone can be ok with deliberate dishonest propaganda. You don't see that's one of the main reasons we are so divided?

What's worse than someone telling the media to shut up?


People defending the media and their lies.

Unbelievable.
