Actually this is somewhat important, since Trump is trying to brainwash his mindless minions to hate and attack the media, which is terrible and unconstitutional for our country. He wants to be a dictator with no dissent, which is unAmerican.


I have to disagree with you here CB. I do not see them as mindless minions but rather earnest Americans frustrated by changes in world demographics and the foreseeable end of American hegemonic dominance. I think that many if not most of his supporters are not in favor of the military indudstrial complex and the nation building of American secret services and neo-con agendas.

In more ways then one, they, in my estimation, are much like real liberals who are against these things as well. Trump would have no pull with them if they did not already have some valid grasp on our affairs. It is that grasp that he has usurped and is playing upon to further his own play for personal world power.

CNN has a license to fake news now!


We at CNN would like to remind our viewers that we have the full backing of the United States Senate!

And Trump has declared he likes freedom of the press after the MSM attacks !!

The "Press" digs its own grave without help.

"They built it, they own it"

MSM knows that Trump knows how many criminals are within their ranks. The I.G. report hinted at it. The indictment of the head of security for the Senate Intel Committee last month (James Wolff), has them scared chitless.

He released the Non-redacted full FISA spy warrants to certain outlets, who used it for spinning their "anonymous sources" fake-news stories. CNN is one of them. Trial date will be set soon. Senators are being called..including corrupt Mark Warner.

Most of the main stream media is nothing more than a mouth piece for the establishment democrats

The rest is the mouth piece for the establishment republicans

There are very few exceptions

A free press is important; unfortunately we haven’t had that for some time

Hence we get them all pushing for wars in Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc

Trump calling out the media is not a crisis

If he would start wiretapping them like obama did, that would be a big deal. But strangely when obama did that, all of these media personalities and politicians so outraged over trumps tweets about the media were basically silent when obama did that

Also, funny how the main stream media gets to define what media need to be protected. While they scream about the importance of the press, they cheer for the censorship of alternative media sites they don’t like

Trump may insult the media but he won't take any action to curb their reporting; He gets off on the attention.

Trump without the media would limit his subjects for twitter.

Saying it over and over again won't make it true. You sound JUST LIKE THE idiot right wingers who said Obama was going to run for a third term. Do you fancy yourself as the left wing Dinesh? Man. Broken record is all too fitting for people like you.

No , the President is CORRECT , “The Press Is the Enemy of the People.”. Confirmed by Documented Thoughts and Actions , Over 200 Million Americans Believe this . What Senators Believe what you Say that are Not in the Democratic Party ? Any Republican Senators saying that ? If so , a Minority of Opinion........:dn

Oh dear lord. Finally something I can agree with. I feel we should bring our troops home, shut down our over seas military bases, and put our military in charge of securing our border and building our infrastructure.

Too bad its the Multi-National Corporate Press, which to see "liberals" grandstand and go out of their minds in support of such a machination is truly mind-boggling.



100% agree

Trump is not the one censoring people. Our free Multi-National Corporate Press composed of 5 conglomerates is the one doing it. It's not just the recent banning of conservatives but this kind of monopolistic anticompetative behavior has been going on for a long time. They are consolidated to the point where free press no longer exists. We need to get in there and bust them up so we can get a diversity of viewpoints. This kind of monopolistic behavior wouldn't be tolerated in other industries.

Trump posted some tweets yesterday re: our free press...

"Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others......."

".....Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all.."

"....Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made. Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!"

He is not trying to silence anyone.

I think your watching to much Bill Maher, Rosie O'Donnell, and Michael Moore.

For any that don't believe, just watch.

"Non-binding resolution"?

Jesus Christ, that's like the entire United States Senate rising up in an almost unheard-of spirit of brotherhood and non-partisanship, and proclaiming "Forty-two".

I first found this story on a foreign language website, it's strange that I haven't seen it in the regular media. The Senate is defending the media, and declared that “the press is not the enemy of the people.” Maybe the President should listen to them, even George W Bush has come out saying the press is an important part of society. Not only is he right, but the free press is in the first ammedment.

www.reuters.com...



What about the social media censorship that is targeting conservatives and libertarians? Are they defending the right to free press there? Nope. Because they are liars and disingenuous.

Glad to hear it roll.. However I don't think that potus has that in mind. Should he should publically move in that direction, I think to many would turn on him.
