It's really unforunate that members of the Trump Cult blindly defend their hero when he attacks the press.They don't realize that they're treading on very dangerous ground.


This is like the "attacks immigrants" thing where the word "illegal" is left out. In this case the word "biased" is left out.

 

No defending of the President in that. Just defending complete use of the English language.


For the past 30 years, the major media have been biased toward telling the truth to the point they offer time to those representing totally bogus views. But that bias toward the truth is automatically a bias against the NRAGOP who only win by lying. Small wonder the Regressives want to muzzle the actual reporting of News and replace it with direct feed from the RNC.

rk's list of scarey Progressives is amazingly non-white...wonder what that could mean? As far as denying a voice to the opposition, not even being considered. Just want the law to minimize the amount of lying the Republican Propaganda Ministry of Fox, Sinclair, Breightbart, National Enquirer and Infowars can spew without having to air retractions and corrections.

 

You'll still be told what to think, but now the rest of us will hear the retractions.

I beg to differ, you have no idea what you are talking about. The "mainstream media" is called mainstream because it generally provides fair and balanced reporting and opinion is always labeled as opinion. The problem is that most people in the "mainstream media" are well educated and informed journalists who know how to check out their sources and answer to an editor for accuracy. Only someone who swallows the right wing kool aid believes that the "mainstream media" has been "co-opted by the Prigressive movement". 

 

If one looks at the level of discourse on the cable news channels like CNN or MSNBC, it is at a much higher level than Fox News according to leading educators. The level of discourse on CNN or MSNBC is at a college level while Fox News is at a 8th or 9th grade level. Do a google search of this, there have been numerous studies of the level of discourse on the news outlets. 


Many of us here know you speak the truth Lk and concur!

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

lyin’ donnie—mega liar-has declared war on the media in another lame attempt to cover up his many lies and his own ineptitude. He is a low life animal, unfit to be president and unfit to walk amongst those who have a moral compass and any sense of decency whatsoever. He is the most deplorable of all the many deplorables who gather around this piece of subhuman garbage.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

Well, that settles that. The "mainstream media" is called mainstream because it generally provides fair and balanced reporting and opinion is always labeled as opinion. Yes, that is the theory. The problem is that most people in the "mainstream media" are well educated and informed journalists who know how to check out their sources and answer to an editor for accuracy. Yes that is the theory. Only someone who swallows the right wing kool aid believes that the "mainstream media" has been "co-opted by the Prigressive movement". Yes, that is the false claim.

Do a google search of this, there have been numerous studies of the level of discourse on the news outlets.  The issue is not "level" - it is unbiased reporting. Fox provides the needed balance to the others.

Donald Trump is the king of Fake News and LIES in the White House.

  • He LIED about Amazon costing the Post Office Money

Of course, Trump Cult members will never complain about Trump's rampant dishonesty.

 

Which of your bullit points has to do with the media?

    No, this is not the Fox News guy who represents any opposition to the RW talking heads, who are not journalists, but this is SE Cupp, who got thrown under the bus for daring to say a bad word about Sinclair...   That is the RW purity party at work:  https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2018/04/03/company-line-cupp-smears-sinclair...

I'm surprised they think Fox reaches the middle school level for their discussions.

   RWer's will poo-poo the source, but now Sinclair is threatening it's own employees.  

 

    How is this legal, sort of like donald's NDA's for everyone:

 

After reviewing two employment contracts, Bloomberg found that "some Sinclair employees were subject to a liquidated damages clause for leaving before the term of their agreement was up: one that requires they pay as much as 40 percent of their annual compensation to the company."
