Does that mean that Friedman did not propose what was posted? Do you have nay thoughts on his vision of the role of the media?


That poster is more interested in going after the messenger than the message.

Apparently so since it looks as if you are saying that there are 'approved' sources and 'unapproved' as you are saying in your post. 


You keep using the terminology "APPROVED" or "UNAPPROVED". That is an error on your part; for I don't approve or disapprove anything.

 

What I do though is determine what is credible or not credible by virtue of a media source's previous history.

 

So, if you think a web site that USED TO BE a TABLOID is credible; then go ahead and think that... I can't stop you.

 

If you think a media source staffed by programmed CULTISTS is credible; then go ahead and think that.... can't stop you there either.


Phrased another way - do you think Friedman did not say that because of who reported it?

Friedman said in an op-ed published Wednesday afternoon that if the media emphasize Trump's personality instead of news about the strong economy, it may discourage enough GOP voters from continuing to support the president and benefit Democrats.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

That is typical of the media ... and many on this board...emphasize the negative and eliminate the positive.


TRUMP THE CHUMP needs no help emphasizing the negative. It's not the media.

 

Whenever he has a positive story come out about him; he buries that story in a TWEET so disgusting that the TWEET becomes the news.

 

But I would take anything printed in THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER with a grain of salt. After all, it is a web site that used to be a TABLOID that went "BELLY UP".

The employees at THE WASHINGTON TIMES were, many times, programmed MOONIE members themselves; therefore, many in the employ of THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER still owe allegiance to the cult.

 

But again, TRUMP THE CHUMP needs no help in changing the news cycle for the worse; he's done it scores of times.


Does that mean that Friedman did not propose what was posted? Do you have nay thoughts on his vision of the role of the media?

part of the link..

 

Liberal New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman said the news media should work together and saturate the public with negative coverage of President Trump in order to erode his popularity among Republican voters.

Friedman said in an op-ed published Wednesday afternoon that if the media emphasize Trump's personality instead of news about the strong economy, it may discourage enough GOP voters from continuing to support the president and benefit Democrats.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why shouldn't the media report what the President says and does?


That is not what Freidman proposed.

=============================================================

They should. That is the point..they twist the news ...not what they should do...many emphasize the negative and eliminate the positive. You like?

Provide Examples Please - If Trump says - You Need a Photo ID in the USA to Buy Groceries - what should the Media do with that - like you - they should try to make up some nonsense about Gorceries being Beer..............................

 

All the MSM Media I listen to - Quote Trump Verbatum - they don't lie about what he says - you don;t have to - most of it speaks for itself

 

You want them to give him Credit for what - Tax Breaks for the Rich - thats all he's done - everything else was destroying Laws already approved by the Representatives of the People

 

The Economy - Jobs - Stock Market - Black Unemplpyment - all imrpoving under Obama

 

The Media Should Work Together to Destroy Trump - it's called Self-presevation - Trump is the one Attacking the Media - the Media is on Defense - The Media has the Constitution on their Side not Trumps 

 

You sound like all the Evangelicals & Religious Finatics I've ever heard - they want the Government to step in and pass Laws to make Parishoners do the things the Clergy can;t convince them to do in the Pulpit

 

There is No Law that says anyone has to get a Abortion - The Evangelicals and the other Religious Finatics cannot convince their Flock not to get Abortions so they want Politicians to do it for them with laws

 

There is No Law that says the News Media has to Make Up Positive Stuff about a President so you folks want one - thats crazy

 

You've already got Trump TV over at FOX - what do you care what the other MSM is broadcasting - according to you and Trump it's all Fake News anyway so what difference does it make -

 

Your Problem - you think Americans can;t make up their own minds - do their own research - you think the Media has a lot more power than they do

 

A majority of Americans voted against Trump because they knew what he was - he's showed them for 70 years

As usual, trump supporters miss the mark totally. Just watching an interview and Friedman and he says give him as much airtime as possible. Isn’t that what trump wants?

Looks like exposure and bright light will bring out the facts. We don’t like those that sell fear and are wanting to divide people.

Let’s watch him be the clown that he is!

To the contrary, by your posts it indicates that  you are approving certain sites and not others.  You apparently disapprove of conservative media by labeling them as cultists, which indicates you only approve of media such as the Washington Post, NYT, etc.

 

Previous history means nothing as indicated by the change in editorial content of some major newsources.

So based on your posting you think “Newsy” is a credible source...

 

Me thinks thou dost protest too much for someone that does exactly what you accuse others of doing.

 

TOO FUNNY!!!
