I'm not sure what your argument is. Media outlets shouldn't be able to choose what they publish/broadcast? Who should decide for them? See how that doesn't make any sense.

If you don't feel that a media outlet is covering what is important to you then by all means, ignore them. If they print something that isn't true about somebody, that person has legal recourse (it's called libel). There are other laws and regulations that govern matters of public interest. One example is the Equal-time Rule. That would prevent a broadcast network from for example, not airing Trump's ad while airing an opponent's ad. They have to give equal opportunity to opposing candidates. It wouldn't apply here though.

FYI, there used to be something called the Fairness Doctorine that was also enforced by the FCC. That was done away with in 1987. It required broadcasters to present opposing viewpoints for controversial issues of public importance. You might want to read up on the debate about it.

1st amendment re-written by Media: its now called "Freedom from speech" : Nothing else but "left side story" shall be aired.


Apparently you don't understand the First Amendment at all. The media doesn't have to broadcast Dear Leader's propaganda videos. It's called freedom of the press.


And calling yourself a news network that only airs what it wants to air is fake news. They are fake news by definition. They are not obligated to cover anything and not obligated to tell the truth about anything, yet call themselves journalists.

You do know that an ad is a commercial correct? It isn't news. It's a 1 - 2 minute propaganda video for whatever it is selling (in this case it is trying to sell you on D. Trump).

What does the 1st Amendment have to do with this?


Because they keep saying they are defenders of it and cite it when they use leaked information.

Maybe but not wanting to show that ad is not a First Amendment issue.

This is like asking Fox News to show an ad where it says that all of the Fox News journalists are far-right Christian nutjobs.

Scott Pelly is quitting his CBS Evening News anchor job.

variety.com...

I couldn't be happier. You can see in his eyes and delivery that he despises President Trump. If the network wants viewers, they should hire a comedian. He'd mesh well with that news cast.
