Senate Unanimous Resolution Media Not Enemy

Message 21 of 74

Trump Cult members are so obsessed with protecting their Supreme Leader in the White House, they cannot see what's obvious to everyone else. Never in our lifetime have we witnessed a President who repeatedly attacks our free press.

 

If President Obama had called the press an enemy of the people, Trump voters would have gone ballistic. But when it comes to their idol and hero in the White House, Trump's cult members have no standards.

You are so obsessed with Cult, hero, leader, etc. that you just can't get the facts straight. The President is not attacking the press - he is attacking the bias in the press.

Every President has been sparring with the media, not necessarily the present one.  But no, the 'press' doesn't necessarily refer to the news media, because the word comes from 'printing press'

 

If you want to be technical about it "from yahoo answer: "Press" generally refers to print media (i.e. off the printing press) like newspapers and magazines. "Media" is a broader term that includes TV, radio, Internet etc."
 
But you just wanted something to disagree on....RIGHT?

The press is part of the media. And yes, trump has tried to suppress and has name-called the press and all other media that we have. Calling it all "fake news" is an example. Barring members of the press from meetings is another. You are the one "disagreeing" ......... disagreeing with facts.

Mountain folk?

 

Step aside for the many thousands of mountain folk in the big mountains in Colorado who live 24/7/365 in cities and towns half to two thirds of a mile higher altitude than the highest point in Tennessee.

 

 


Changing the topic?  Ok, Appalachian mountain folk. 


Didn't your post first initiate an off-topic mention of "mountain folk"?

Just following your change of topic...

All of my post content still applies to the entirety of Appalachia.

The lowest altitude town in Colorado - about 3400 ft - way out on the flat Eastern plains near the Kansas border - is still higher altitude than the majority of towns and cities in the entire Appalachian range. 

The meaning of "mountain folk" changes a mite as one goes a thousand plus miles West...

Did I mention Trump?  All I was referring to was the definition.  Some just love to insert Trump at any chance they can get.  Us'n (as the mountain folk would say) liberals need to concentrate on what was posted.


It nevertheless is an issue that's a result of trump's big mouth saying stupid things...

Well, media in this case is the press.  Trump, the (documented) most prolific liar in the history of the presidency, has call the free press of the United States to be an enemy of the people.  It appears he has done this because they continue to research and document the fact that he lies as easily as breathing.  Over 4,500 lies in his firs 500 days?

 

Us liberals do love to present facts to the ill informed Conservatives.
