To be sure, President Trump is sometimes his own worst enemy, because he makes such broad claims, without being more specific. An example is when he
said that President Obama had Wiretapped Trump Tower. Actually, his campaign did have individuals "unmasked" by the Obama administration, but that
is not the same thing as Obama directly Wiretapping Trump Tower. The liberal media blew a gasket over this claim from President Trump, but they had
reason to IMO, because he offered no proof. Trump was his own worst enemy.
What gets my goat
is when ONE mediocre "news" outlet publishes a negative story about President Trump, and all the rest "pile on" and start
embellishing the original anti-Trump story, to make it even more damning of the U.S. President.
Since at least 80% of the U.S. media is LIBERAL/Democrat, the entire world is soon viewing "Breaking News!" describing the heinous deed committed by
President Trump, and/or, how horrible the United States is. (Because Donald Trump is President, negative stories about the U.S. are intended to
portray his leadership as poor, faulty, etc..)
For example, today, the WASHINGTON POST published a story where "unnamed" and "anonymous" sources told one of its reporters that President Trump
revealed highly classified ISIS-related intelligence to Russian officials, when they visited the White House last week.
Within 2 hours, so-called "legitimate" news outlets began eliciting reactions from intelligence experts and government officials. These news
outlets didn't question if the Washington Post's story was accurate. They launch right into their interviews, assuming that it is.
For example, CBS News found some former CIA official to solidly condemn President Trump. Read this, keeping in mind that nobody knows WHAT President
Trump allegedly told his Russian visitors.
""This is highly damaging for two reasons," said former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell about the reported reveal, which the White House
denies. "First, the Russians will undoubtedly try to figure out the source or the method of this information to make sure that it is not also
collecting on their activities in Syria -- and in trying to do that they could well disrupt the source."
"The second damage is that third countries who provide the United States with intelligence information will now have pause to do so if the United
States is sharing such information with the Russians without their permission," Morell said in a conversation with CBS News' Scott Pelley.""

The term "fake news" is becoming too cute. The Washington Post flat out LIED
, and CBS, without questioning anything, found some former CIA
official to describe how President Trump has SEVERELY DAMAGED the United States.. in TWO WAYS...with nobody even knowing what President Trump
What CBS did was repeated ad nauseam by all the Liberal Media outlets today. In fact, the CBS website has a publication time of 9:35 pm. That's 4
hours after top U.S. intelligence officials WHO WERE IN THE MEETING, stepped forward to say that President Trump did NOT reveal classified information
to the Russians. Yet CBS still runs with the story, because they devoted resources to securing that interview with the former CIA official.
This Liberal Media "pile on" whenever the story reflects poorly on President Trump, or America, is flat out WRONG..DEGRADING..and DANGEROUS to this
They are causing societal RIFTS that will lead to increasing American-on-American VIOLENCE. And, by giving the world the impression that America is
run by a President who has no idea what he's doing, opens America up to dangerous attacks from internal and external terrorists.
SOMETHING needs to be done to insure and enforce some measure of "quality control" within U.S. media outlets. I suggest that if they publish more
than 3 Front Page Anti-Trump / Anti-America stories in a month that turn out to be LIES, that the organization pay a percentage of it's prior
year's annual revenue as a fine. (Something similar to how ObamaCare punishes people who don't have health insurance.)
For ATS members who feel that the U.S. Media needs to be held accountable by external enforcement, because they no longer care to internally enforce
their standards of integrity & honesty, what measures do YOU feel need to be put in place by the Federal Government to police and punish the worst
offenders? I'll look forward to reading YOUR responses!
(fyi..I'll read, but won't respond, if you're against media accountability enforcement.)
