I bring up the Iraq war to note that the MSM we all know is full of crap.
But where were all these right-wingers complaints about the media when they were justifying the killing of almost half a million Iraqis.

I don't know, it was an honest question to Annie.
I laugh at your hitler/nazi hyperbole. Did you compare this election to 9/11 as well?
In a general sense, German newspapers that were owned, ran, supported by a, or supported a political party such as the Communists or the Socialists, were all naturally hostile to Hitler and the Nazi's. Far Left and Left parties such as these enjoyed being critics of Hitler's Far Right ideas for obvious political reasons, and as such, almost all of them were immediately shut down in 1933. Other Newspapers, conservative papers such as the Munich Latest News (Muncher Neuste Nachrichten), and papers such as the Catholic Franconian Press (Frankische Presse), which was affiliated with the Bavarian People's Party, all had their fair share of criticising the Nazi's prior to 1933, with the latter having to apologise on March 27, 1933, for "having printed lies about Hitler and the Nazis for year."

It’s become a familiar routine by now: Trump supporters haranguing the press at rallies, booing them and screaming at them.
“Tell the truth!” and “CNN sucks!” have become staples at nearly every Trump rally. On Saturday night, a new and foreign accusation came to the fore: “Lügenpresse!”
The term, which means “lying press” in German, has a history dating back to the mid-1800s and was used by the Nazis to discredit the media. In recent years, it has been revived by German far-right anti-immigrant groups. And on Saturday, it made an appearance at a Trump rally in Cleveland, Ohio.
