There is always much furor, on here and elsewhere, regarding what is said (and what is not said) by talking heads on TV. Despite the mistrust of MSM voiced here, people are still getting all riled up over the things they’ve heard on the news (as evidenced by multiple threads)-- a maelstrom ensues each new hot button issue and spins furiously without ever quite reaching the target (a compromise or solution-- or is a solution really the target they seek? Hmmm).

The media is not our friend. By now, if the so-called reporters are unaware of the unrest they are causing through their irresponsible approach to these contentious times, then they are not aware enough of their surroundings to adequately report the news. And if they are aware (which I believe they are) then they are fully deplorable. And they ought to know their role in destabilizing already mentally ill individuals and, if their contention that words really DO directly harm people is true, they have blood on their hands.

Real reporters are not bankrolled by billionaires.

If you allow the news to incite you against your fellow countrymen, you let the billionaires pull the strings. That simple.

Have a great day, friends!

Privately owned television or any kind of mass media including publishing books should be by proxy against the law GLOBALLY.

So which model for government owned media do you prefer socialist or communist?

Indeed. I stopped watching TV around 15 years ago. I was starting to see "through" it all. I only read papers for entertainment value to keep up with what the globalists attempt next.

Haha, good point, olaru!

We all see the problem... so, what's the solution?

Maybe we can brainstorm a bit on here.

For one, we ALL have the platform now to be responsible reporters. The problem is we've dug ourselves in these deep trenches all ready for warfare and might not report the truth responsibly if it doesn't fit our opinions.

Yeah, terrorist love to use free speech.

Not so sure the MSM are the only speech terrorists.

Can't we get the government to control what non government people say? That should make things better.

So a free press is the biggest terror threat.

Kind of ironic how some of you adopt the exact same views of the authoritarian dictatorships your profess to fear and hate so much.

Are you saying that MSM should be allowed to misinform or disinform because of free speech?

Very well put. It’s almost as if they’ve removed themselves from the equation entirely. But the division in this country and others rests solely in their hands.

They’re there to manipulate the easily-manipulated.
Without the media there would be no “Reeeeeeee”.

I've had direct experience with "reporters" and have seen from the inside how they twist a story to make it sensational.

This was well before the media war drums began to beat, but I'm glad for the peek behind the curtain.

"Free reporters" who report the truth unfettered can end up suicided.

True journalism is a deadly profession and all my admiration goes to those brave souls.

Don Lemon? Hannity? Jokers and fools inciting from an ivory tower.

You mean like the reporters that old Vlad kills off outside the kremlin when they get a little too critical of him??

Yes because free speech will allow for someone to point out those who misinform and disinform & win the admiration (and votes) of the moral citizenry. That was the founders plan.

Once the population of the USA is composed of a majority of immoral folks....free speech sux for the good folks. Madison warned us.

It's freedom of speech, just like opinions here. If people are too stupid the see BS then that is the problem.

So the government now allows some free speech and limits it for others, of their choosing. Another great plan.

As the population is dumbed down is this expected, people just believing what someone else says without thought about it..
