Responding to the shooting, Savage questioned whether Trump should “take control of Twitter” and asked, “Is it time for the government to take control of the out-of-control pirates on social media ... who do not monitor left-wing haters?” He also advocated for removing Rachel Maddow and others from the airwaves by the federal government, citing “their constant drumbeat of their hatred against Trump and Republicans, calling for, among other things, resistance with their sneers every night.”


A populace with no free press is a much easier to control populace. Look at North Korea, China and Russia. I remember a few years ago here at ATS when, despite the links to Alex Jones and Sorcha Faal... you were expected to know a bit about your sources and make sure it was actual news. I feel like now we're in the opposite, everything is labeled fake news but no one seems to check if it's actually fake before rejecting out of hand or taking others word for it because of feelings.

A lot of conspiracy theory over the past... since forever, has focused on dumbing people down. Well here we are, conspiracy confirmed. Between the war on education, academia and now the media it seems we have lost, we've succumbed and now it's even smugly applauded.

Obviously I strongly disagree that there has been anything remotely close to fueling hatred through the MSM even MSNBC which is openly liberal doesn't advocate violence or much of anything really, it just seems to be a bunch of liberals discussing the political news of the day. I read my news generally but I tune in now and then to see what people are bitching about... I just don't see anything warranting such vitriol against it.

It's all easy enough to fact check or wait out to see if claims come to fruition so I don't understand why most people don't and it seems to me the MSM gets it right way more than it gets it wrong. People just don't seem to like the truth, I guess.

Can't wait to see who backs this and who doesn't.

Used to be on this site, that this is exactly what everyone was waiting for, warning about and here it is on the #ing welcome mat ringing the bell.

That's the extreme side.

There should be a spot somewhere in the middle where the media can't publish fake news stories every day based off known erroneous anonymous sources and dossiers.

If you watched the Comey testimony then you know that is what's happening. Unless he lied under oath.

I don't think that the government should take over the media.

But if violent leftists continue to harm everyone who doesn't think like them, I would strongly encourage firing back.

Can't wait for the comments by the small government people trying to explain why government controlled media is a good thing..

Typical M. Savage, playing to his base desperately seeking to get his ratings up as the advertisers bail on his BS program.

www.mediapost.com...

Media is a business and business is Free enterprise, I don't think a socialist Media is really what America wants.

I agree with him.

I want to take it a step further though and move all political dissenters into centrally located communal groupings. You know, kind of concentrating them in several secure areas until we can devise some sort of solution to the problem.

Listening to the clip in question, it is quite clear he was asking questions, not "calling" for anything. The answers to his questions, in my opinion, are "no".

Do these concentrated communal areas come with watch towers and barbed wire? Everyone likes barbed wire.

Sure. And maybe a lamp factory or two.

Each and every side has an extreme. We need to find a nice medium. There is not one policy anywhere that will make everyone happy. We have to find some way to agree to disagree and stop this madness!

Putting the press under government control is not the answer.

We don't need the government's help, we need to them step back.

How do we bring the press back to what they were? How do we get them to cover the real news?

I'm sorry I don't know the answer but I know it isn't the government. It needs to start with We The People

Savage, isn't that the same guy who gave Trump the idea that he was wiretapped by Obama? Now he is pushing for big govt.

Wow, just wow.

Bull. You would have us believe that Rachel Maddow can drive a person to become a failed political terrorist by covering Congressional investigations but that Savage's actual call to remove her from the air is just asking a question. That is some incredibly weak propaganda.

Sorry Augie it isn't even funny right now, with so many ATSers calling for leftists like me to be silenced or locked up.

What the # do you think is spurring this on???

Do you really think that glossing over or marginalizing what happened yesterday is going to make everything all right?
