I've noticed the anti-Trump crowd no longer even attempts to reply to the topic at hand.

They just make something up completely out of the blue, then roll with it.

If you think the MSM doesn't have moles in the White House feeding them info. wtf.... Some of Trumps staff are leaking news for money. Free enterprise and capitalism rawks.

Trumps security people are likely the leakers. Who do you think the "unnamed sources" are?

This isn't Mayberry RFD you know. It's nasty around the belt way.

The naivete of ATS members is astonishing.


Mostly fake-feed chicken feed.

Taking their cues from CNN.

The media is a big table.

Time the other kids get allowed to play.


Yes, the large outlets have the edge on the competition,
it cant be that bad for them.

Gee, I wonder if there is another underlying issue, like
maybe they are worried they wont be able to control
the narrative so easily?

As long as the MSM don't get to write the whole narrative then it gives the system a place to put the pry bar to and leverage it .



I think this is key, at least there will be a handful of other outlets
that can offer up different accounts, yes even viewpoints.

I like that the article even points out that the previous administration also hand picked which "reporters" would be allowed to ask questions. I wonder how long it's been that way.


A good long time I would imagine.
One of them from years ago made it to an Obama advisor,
really a story in and of itself. He was part architect of the Iran
deal if I recall correctly.

Good it will give alternative media legitimacy as long as they stay true to the original message.


Yes, that is key also. One thing good about Trump being so "unpopular"
it wont be a walk in the park for sure, fighting both Republican establishment
and Democrat establishment....not a job I would envy.

This is truly ironic


The WH playing favorites is "ironic?" Daily Caller is owend by Fox News troll, Tucker Carlson. The Daily Caller became very Trump friendly. Hell, Carlson's son was out campaigning for Trump.

Well, for starters probably not The Daily Caller ....lol.

Hmmm probably some leftovers beholden to establishment power trippers.



This isn't Mayberry RFD you know. It's nasty around the belt way. Network political paparazzi are everywhere as are stringers. Don't even know what they are do you?


Its a fight of a lifetime, ask Andrew Breitbart or Michael Hastings....
oh...wait.......


News is a business!


I think your last comment is correct, no one is immune
to be certain but at least they should be given a chance, no?

During the year leading up to the election, it was exposed that The Clinton
Campaign was feeding articles, approving articles of journalists at
The New York Times, Politico, and others.

Yet you never once complained about that, did you?

But now Trump calls on a local ABC station, and your calling foul on that?

Ask Andrew Breitbart who died on the street 5 days after Robert Mercer invested the first $10 million in Breitbart News. Of course we all know who took over from there at Breitbart right?

It sure is odd isn't it? I mean, imagine someone or a group so completely arrogant where they first attack you with seething vitriol one fine day, and then be expecting you later to concede to whatever wish they ask from you, like "a question".. This is what those mainstream news people are doing. The only cure to a disease like that is death. When the host is dead, the disease is powerless. Unfortunately there is no other viable cure for these news people.

Of course, they might be my future employers. Media people are like hired guns; going where the most money resides.

I worked for Gov. Johnson when he was Gov. of NM. and during his first pres. bid. Then for the GOP last go round.

You really did not answer my question, you skipped over
the real issue there. During the election it was found that
The Clinton Campaign was collaborating with, feeding,
and correcting news articles for many of the big MSM
outlets.

You never complained, or questioned that.

Most people think and say Andrew died of natural causes.

But go ahead, if you have a conspiracy minded
theory on someone killing him off, don't be shy.
Lets hear it, by all means.

So much for 'Making truth great again'.

FTR.

Tucker started out as a CNN 'troll' then moved to Fox News.
