The propaganda networks should be taken off the air.
They are no longer a 'free press'. They are bought and paid for political operatives - you only need look at the presenters and journalists to see that.
As the '4th estate', rules SHOULD be in place to ensure the press and media are not infiltrated.


Your right man, the MSM has turned into a freedom-hating train wreck...


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


Has nothing to do with freedom, the treasonous MSM is adhering to our Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

Article Three of the United States Constitution.

Right on Greven I just saw your post.... we're on the same page. The liberal traitors are on a fictional page.


I'll ask again. Who are they enemies?


Capitalist-hating weirdos are the enemy, they broadcast from Chinawood aka "Hollywood."

Trump needs to tell them ​SOB's GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY.... Bing bing, bong bong, bing bing bing.

So, other Americans. Ones that don't share your views. That is delusional. Scary as well.

No, broadcasting licences are granted by the FCC, not the constitution.
Try again.

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.


I think it is trolling... but then again -- the guy is president -- and information is now fake news, and our EPA chief is polishing the rod of big coal, and FBI says Russia interefered to help Trump, and so now FBI I guess is fake news??? So, yeah it's definitely bizarro anti-Something world. With Trolls.

Spoken like a true advocate of an autocratic regime.

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.

That would be civil law. Civil law made by bureaucrats. Bureaucrats appointed by and that work for the government.
See where I'm going here?

To stations. Broadcast stations. Not networks.

Cable is more interesting:

Q: Does the FCC regulate the content of cable programming?

A: Cable television system operators generally make their own selection of channels and programs to be distributed to subscribers in response to consumer demands. The Commission does, however, have rules in some areas that are applicable to programming -- called "origination cablecasting" in the rules -- that are subject to the editorial control of the cable system operator. The rules generally do not apply to the content of broadcast channels or to access channels over which the cable system operator has no editorial control.

A government agency. You DO know what "infringe" means don't you? You can try to twist it but it still doesn't fly. What you guys are supporting is unconstitutional.

They don't share views, they share fake news, total fabrications to disrupt democracy. I wouldn't call modern MSM, American... most of them are paid by foreign enemies like Soros.

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


Correct. But..

Reporting in good faith, even if it turn out to be false, is protected. Intentional reporting of false information is not protected per se, hence slander and libel, although the burden of proof is greater for public officials and those in the public light.

Additionally, Larry Flynt did great things by using parody and satire to broaden and preserve free speech.

Just because someone dislikes what the news reports, doesn't mean it's not protected.

REMINDER: The purpose of the First Amendment is to protect unpopular speech, the speech that so many in this thread, including the President of the United States, seem to want to outlaw, or make punishable. That is unAmerican.

Wait I'm trying to understand... So, the people who defend nazis and white nationalists also believe in attacking the free press? Oh ok that makes sense actually.

If you have a problem with the rules then that is a broader issue unrelated to Trump.

You know the person who helped revise the Pledge of Allegiance (mostly) into what we have today was a socialist, right?

There are laws against libel and slander. To be taken up in court, not by suppressing freedom of speech.

The government should not be allowed to revoke broadcasting licenses for something along these lines. That is a dictatorship.

It's this kind of crap that makes me awfully glad I did not vote for Trump. Much the same as I did not vote for anyone, because it was all crap for choices.

If anything should be done to CNN, it should be because what they were calling news was actually opinion. And shy of habitually misrepresenting their "facts" as news, they should not be penalized by loosing their license because the President does not like what they have to say.


According to the Broadcasting rules broadcasting false stories is grounds for license lossage.

Complete freedom of speech does not exist and never has.
Some freedoms exist.
For example, stations are not allowed to advertise cigarettes.

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.


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


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.


Laughing feels good. I've been doing it reading your posts.


You aren't getting it. He isn't stopping them from lying, he's saying they will be punished for it. Truth or Consequences? Which one has the MSM been choosing by lying constantly? Eventually consequences will take place.

All your life you as well as everyone else has learned from a young age that lies have consequences. The MSM doesn't get a free pass on that. (They have been for too long). The lies they tell is damaging the very fabric of society and it is damaging freedom for the people. Free to live without being LIED to.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.


Ahem.

Please define a "false story" and cite the regulation which provides for revocation of a station's license for broadcasting such. I couldn't find it myself.

False.
