I supported him yanking creds for CNN when he took office.

Its not an attack on the 1st amendment. Its an attack on corporate media. I personally see no issue with that, and no one in Washington is beholden to office a gallery of jackals pursuing their own corporate interests.

Wouldn’t it be funny to see Trumps reaction if the media decided to boycott him? No news stories, nothing about him on TV, nothing.

He’d probably give up the presidency in a week.



I think that would be hilarious.

What would the news agencies do... just broadcast anti-second Amendment crap from 11AM to 1PM and go off air? They wouldn't have anything to spin, after all, and there is a weather channel.

LMAO.

Ah so now he's openly admitting that fake news, by his definition, is any negative press about him. Nothing to see here folks! Not totalitarian at all!

Let's get back to deflecting from all this Cohen + trump + bribery nothingburger! Hillary, anyone?


Do you agree that Corporations are people? IE Citizens United where the SCOTUS made it okay for Corporations to buy politicians? You know the same Corporations that dominate our so called *NEWS*?

Please show your hypocrisy while telling us all how you hate capitalism while actually being the most valuable tool these Corps have to push their agenda.

I am not an Anti Capitalist! I am all for Capitalism accept when it becomes the Pimps for those we elect to represent US and our Constitution.

We haven't seen Capitalism for years in the US, what we have been BS's into believing is Capitalism is Crony Capitalism. IE our Elected officials DO NOT represent us.

Usually authoritarian people make others believe it is the right thing to do.

No matter how bad the media one needs to learn to ignore r refute them. No snowflakes.

Besides the average age is like 68 and the youth don't even watch the news. It's hardly a threat.

So, better that only corporate media that print good things about the administration has access?

That seems to be what Trump wants.

It's not like the MSM just attacks anything Trump without researching.


New York Times slams AWOL Pompeo, then learns he was rescuing Americans

Is this the same media that Hillary avoided to the point she refused to be interviewed for like sixteen months?

This is almost as bad as a president giving WH press credentials to media that doesn't report the truth about him.

That is an interpretation. Another would be him asking how come things are going to well, but the press on site isn't reporting it.

Yes the very same Hillary that Hillary Hillaried for Hillary and absolutely Hillary's Hillary! You're correct!

I really don't know what Trump and all of his brainwashed worshipping little pawns are worried about.

Trump will enact a war with some nation or another within the year, based on totally false pretences... Then the so called MSM will be praising him as a true American patriot, just like they did with Bush.

Silly little brainwashed pawns... Incapable of comprehending whats actually going on here, even though its right in front of you, as clear as day light... hiding in plain site!

But whatever... just carry on.

Maybe he should go to his safe space where he is special and everything is great!

Besides it's far to early to tell what he has done.

So far the tax cut is headed towards a trillion deficit.

There are people who are First Amendment supporters as long as what is said is what they want to hear. Otherwise, take it away.

What credentials can he remove? Can he take away a journalist's college or job? The only power he has is to remove them from white house briefings and reality is he has every right to do so. It's his briefings and he can decide who he wants there. I no way does this effect the press and Obama attempted the same thing banning fox from white house briefings and removed fox from mlm the press pool. It wasn't until other networks said they would drop coverage that Obama changed his mind.

The press has no right to white house access.

Trump believes that the press is publishing skewed news and hit pieces on him. Many of his supporters do as well. Many who really don't support him do as well. Its not like its a fringe that sees the news as biased and hell bent on taking down the president.

He has a right to take action and disallow what he may believe are seditionists access to the white house.

Obama said he would be the most transparent administration ever, and then it turned out he was the most censorial. Outlandish statements is one thing; implementing them is quite another.

Today, right now...not in some future that no one can actually predict, he has done good things. The NK talks seem to be working themelves out. He ended an agreement that pissed off the Iranian government, but seemed to make everyone else in the region quite happy. His administration has uncovered the most insidious plot to overthrow the duly elected government that I think has ever been uncovered in the US, and could actually bring some honor back to the notion of "rule of law. This is today. Right now.

Maybe when you are done looking for dark clouds in that crystal ball, you can glance up and notice it.
