Your right man, the MSM has turned into a freedom-hating train wreck, they don't just border on insanity, they falling into socialistic-indoctrinating bottom-feeders.

Well done.




The TV media networks are rotten to the core.
Taking networks off the air by revoking their licences in no way contradicts the 1st amendment.

The FCC regulates the licences and those that gain licences to broadcast to the people have the freedom afforded by the 1st amendment. Those that do not have licences can operate like any citizen and express themselves how they like, under the 1st amendment and subject, of course, to law. They just wouldn't be able to broadcast via regulated and licensed means.

The Constitution is not a body of law that governs the behavior of individuals, we're talking about MSM. It has nothing to do with individual free speech.


It has to do with freedom of press.


It's not freedom of the press when the enemy is broadcasting.

And your solution is restricting freedoms, granted by the Constitution, even further. Your logic is astounding.

Keep telling yourself that. In an alternate reality it may be true. In this one it's BS.

You're right. It put limitations on what the government can do.


...we're talking about MSM. It has nothing to do with individual free speech.


You should be informed before spouting off:


The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, ensuring that there is no prohibition on the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.


en.wikipedia.org...


You got backwards, I'm talking about Trump towards MSM.... MSM is not the press it's FAKE NEWS!

And yes, I am right about the Constitution.


The MSM is absolutely the press. Don’t be an idiot. Fake News is what trump supporters have been swallowing down every day. They’ve gone batty.


So your buying the MSM pedophilia Russian narrative... Good luck with that.

MSM has committed TREASON against the president by reporting fake news, they are trying to oust him under false pretenses. I'm pretty sure the Constitution contains treason...

Indeed it does:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Attempts to stretch aid and comfort have been many; but what enemy did the MSM join?
After all, that's what 'adhere' means here - literally joining an enemy.

Free speech is not licensed, by virtue of the First Amendment. FCC license is subordinate to First Amendment.


under the 1st amendment and subject, of course, to law.


The law being the Bill of Rights and freedom of the press.

This doesn't affect freedom in any way shape or form. What it actually does is PUNISH LIARS. Liars still have the freedom to lie, and hopefully soon they will be harshly punished for it by having their license to broadcast revoked. Trying to hide lies under the umbrella of the first amendment is the real villain harming freedom.

If NBC and others have their licenses revoked I will laugh soooooo hard and then jump for joy. Freedom from liars will win the day.

I read the 1st. It didn't mention an exemption for lying. It was absolute. The government shall not infringe on the press.

Apparently the fake news is the media that reports the information that comes directly from the president or the U.S. Intelligence Community? and this FBI investigation is a fake thing too, right? And the Russian thing... all fake... so fake intelligence community... because... Trump says so?

Just accept you guys voted for a retard. And also accept in doing so you're taking the retard status yourself too. Don't blame the media.

You should be ashamed to call yourself an American.

If you people believe this # I'm even more scared than I was before, because you're advocate the destruction of a foundation of American freedom and principle: the first amendment.

I hope you all are simply trolling.

Again, networks are not licensed. Stations are.

There are two facets of broadcast journalism that the FCC is concerned with; hoaxes and news distortion.

 

So, what is a hoax?

Hoaxes. The broadcast by a station of false information concerning a crime or catastrophe violates the FCC's rules if:



the station licensee knew that the information was false,
broadcasting the false information directly causes substantial public harm, and
it was foreseeable that broadcasting the false information would cause such harm.

In this context, a “crime” is an act or omission that makes the offender subject to criminal punishment by law, and a “catastrophe” is a disaster or an imminent disaster involving violent or sudden events affecting the public. The broadcast must cause direct and actual damage to property or to the health or safety of the general public, or diversion of law enforcement or other public health and safety authorities from their duties, and the public harm must begin immediately.

Doesn't seem to qualify.
 

So, what is news distortion?

News Distortion. The Commission often receives complaints concerning broadcast journalism, such as allegations that stations have aired inaccurate or one-sided news reports or comments, covered stories inadequately, or overly dramatized the events that they cover. For the reasons noted above, the Commission generally will not intervene in such cases because it would be inconsistent with the First Amendment to replace the journalistic judgment of licensees with our own. However, as public trustees, broadcast licensees may not intentionally distort the news: the FCC has stated that “rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest.” The Commission will investigate a station for news distortion if it receives documented evidence of such rigging or slanting, such as testimony or other documentation, from individuals with direct personal knowledge that a licensee or its management engaged in the intentional falsification of the news. Of particular concern would be evidence of the direction to employees from station management to falsify the news. However, absent such a compelling showing, the Commission will not intervene.

In essence, slander. One of those laws the president would like to see "opened up." So, all the president has to do is file a complaint, with evidence, against each station, and let the FCC investigate. Would the licenses of all the stations who broadcast a network story be revoked? Probably not.

I'm honestly wondering if these people are simply trolling, or if I actually woke up in a bizarro anti-American, anti-Constitutional world.

I hope it's simply trolling.
