Just admit you are spouting nonsense because you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.
I’m a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump.

What? Why wouldn't they? Muslims are the greatest victims of Islamic terrorism.

Don't mind me...

I'm just sitting here laughing my ass off at the neverending Jerry Springer show y'all are living in.



Seriously. And we know there's only one way it ends. Turn off the media and quit playing these partisan games. LOL
That is the answer. The enemy is not one or the other party. It is anyone who would normalize chaos and manipulate masses. When people learn to govern themselves, there will be no need for laws.


When people learn how to think for themselves there will be no need for the main stream media, left or right.

People that can't think for themselves watch TV and listen to talk radio.
I think we would still like to get the news every day. A free thinker can watch whatever and come to their own conclusions. We need good information to be properly educated about the world. We are not getting good information at the moment. We are witnessing a civil war between our two political parties. This would be a fine time for a rational voice to speak up.


The problem lies in what they tell us. CNN for example usually doesn't lie...they just don't tell us everything. They'll just omit a story or some pertinent facts. I scan ATS and read a News app called Flipboard in the morning. That and my facebook feed tells me everything I need to know.

The real problem isn't the news but the "News Shows' and pundits Like Maher or Hannity etc. That's where they really try to indoctrinate us.

I study success and succesful people. I want to be amazingly rich one day...so I copy what more financially succesful people than me do. One thing they tell me over and over is to stop watching the news.
I think they are right. The news does not mirror the actual world. It shows you what a single corporation wants you to think of the world. All polished and pressed into perfect little sound bytes. Literally creating the world they want us to react to.

Seems it would be more beneficial to increase the intelligence in the general population so they can weed through bullsh*t. The media has been controlled by the government for years on end. There is no need to get the government any more involved than it already is.

a reply to: Kali74i don'r agree with taking over the press but you got to admit there isn't very much free press to be found at the national level nearly every channel is total antitrump propaganda. truly the president could discover a cure for cancer and they would turn around and say he was involved with nazis and used megeles notes for cure.
i do feel like some of this blatant visaed reporting if you can call it that needs to be smacked hard by fcc. Why is all their reports being sourced by unnamed sources? I thought you need to have a secondary source if you using unnamed sources to keep paper or station from being sued for libel or slander"?

The Media landscape in America is whack. There's little to no integrity anymore. It's all about outlandish headlines and cheap shots at the other "side"

I don't know what the answer is but there was effectual State-run Media during Obama's reign, now the news dogs are on the attack at their masters command (i.e Carlos Slim, Viacom etc) to maul "the enemy"

There are just as many right-wing 'haters' as left-wing 'haters'. The concept of 'Hate' is subjective. So, unless we're going to appoint Michael Savage as our Social Media Jimminy Cricket, who gives a cr*p what he thinks? His programs fall into the same category he's railing against - highly political and controversial. Just because many people on this site happen to agree with M Savage doesn't make his political programming any different that that of a left-wing broadcaster. It's called freedom of GD speech, and it's something that Americans who aren't afraid value.

Well, you might want to blame FOX for some of that...they went to court to protect their right to lie:

In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States. The Media Can Legally Lie

I never said Savage didn't have the right to call for government take over of media. I'm just disagreeing with him and bringing attention to it.

Savage is not so savage. He's actually a Wiener. I think the problem is both forms of media are skewed, social media, and mainstream. People don't really trust journalists to do their job.

A broadcaster or talking head is now considered a journalist. The stories we hear are garbage.

This guy needs to lose his advertising base. IMHO. If he isn't an operative of some sort, he's just plain insane.

Are we really at the point in the USA that people are seriously opining on the virtues of state run media? Putin has already won.

How exactly does that work? Watergate would never have come to light were it not for unnamed sources. If they had to have a named source for that whole fiasco, then it would not have been much of a cover-up in the end and that 'named source' probably would have found themselves in concrete shoes at the bottom of some lake somewhere after naming and shaming.

Journalists used to verify anonymously sourced info independently with multiple sources before they ran with it. Now it's more like a game of Chinese whispers.

Maybe if WaPo and NYT didn't get 90% of that sort of stuff wrong and ultimately have to retract it (on page 96, under the Public Notices for building permits) it wouldn't be so egregious.

I don't believe in the government taking over anything. Period.

That being said.....

I do believe there needs to be SOME kind of.....regulation? (For lack of a better term) on stories from "Anonymous Sources"

You can honestly make anything up you like, and say an anonymous source told you, then print it.

Other than that, freedom of the press rules. But when you have no name to attach to an allegation against someone, or a big time leak, then the story is basically conjecture, and/or lies.

Exactly.

If they use those tactics, and are proven wrong, the retraction should be mandated to be on the front page, Headline story.
