I could watch these all day long.
This guy is so right-on it's like I wrote it myself. I am with him. Like Hell.
There is nothing - NOTHING - that President Trump could say bad about the media that I would then say, "Whoa, that's too far." Like Hell.
Waiting to see how the fake media will spin the story of the white, unarmed, pajama-clad Minneapolis woman shot to death by a Somali-born cop named Mohamed for no apparent reason - after she called 9-1-1 to report an assault, no less.
Reportedly, the cop who shot her was sitting on the passenger side of the car and fired across his partner's body to kill her on the driver's side! Cop has only been on the force for two years and already had three complaints lodged against him.
I wonder if Putin got 2 scoops of ice cream as well?
Trump and Putin were probably creating meme's making fun of Barry - those traitorous SOBs!
Need a sign of hope for America?
Kids on DC tours are yelling at journalists, calling them "fake news"
Obviously nobody should even be joking about journalists being killed or physically threatened. However, if they wonder why they're not trusted by so many people, perhaps they need to look in the mirror.
That's what really bothers me about this whole thing. So far, the complains from journalists seem to be "If people don't trusts journalists, then our society is in big trouble. So you need to trust us! Because... we're journalists and if you don't trust journalists then...."
We don't use that argument with politicians or other public officials (well... we're not supposed to, anyway), so I'm not sure wjhy journalists believe they should be immune to that level of scrutiny.
The guarantee of a free press gives them delusions that they are an indispensable element of the republic. That's true to a point, but the freedom of the press only protects them from government interference. It doesn't guarantee them a right of deference or credibility from anybody. If they blow that credibility (as they have), then they have no special right to deference.
They also don't have a right to print ********. Many Trump critics freaked out when he suggested loosening lawsuits against media outlets. I wasn't one of them (though I was hostile to him on numerous other things). If we overturned New York Times v. Sullivan law, we'd have the same press environment that we had from 1789 - 1964. Who thinks the political media has more credibility now than it had then? I'll bet nobody.
I don't agree. They are reaping what they have sown and rightly so, IMO.
I agree, not so much in condoning harm to them. But their corrupt and purposely divisive behavior has directly caused much violence and death these recent years.
You won't get an argument from me here.
Journalists have been given a free ride for so long that any push back at all is considered nazi tactics.
US general somewhat politely lays missing out on killing al-Baghdadi at the feet of the NYT, and its determined penchant to leak. We are talking the blood of Americans + countless Iraqis
the reason they are purposefully divisive is because there is an audience for such a product and that is because there is no general agreement on much of anything. And hasn't been since time began.
Dumping on the press because you don't like what they are saying is stupid. Stupid.
If you don't like what you see or hear from the media, go back to watching that stupid garbage peddled as entertainment in the theaters and on television. Or just make up your own facts
How would acting in the same manner as the moronic media help the situation? They deserve every criticism aimed at them. It's called authentic feedback. If they, or you for that matter, don't like the criticism, I would suggest an attempt at honesty.
So Newsweek settled the libel/fake news suit brought by another journalist that Kurt Eichenwald got them into. The case alleged bribery and Eichenwald threats to buy the editor's silence over a false story regarding Russia, President Trump and WikiLeaks
And it now looks like Newsweek has fired Eichenwald over it
Sputnik writer Bill Moran had written a piece that included a misattributed quote that Trump, then a presidential candidate, used in a speech that same day.
Upon realizing a mistake had been made, Moran took the story down, but not before Trump had read it and mentioned it at a rally in Pennsylvania.
But Eichenwald, a senior writer at Newsweek, had concluded the only way Trump could have learned about the "misattributed quote was purposeful collusion with the Russians, and that the Wikileaks documents themselves had been altered," according to Paste.
Moran reached out to Newsweek and Eichenwald and requested his story, titled "Dear Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin, I Am Not Sidney Blumenthal," be corrected. He says the request was ignored, but he was contacted by Eichenwald.
The 56-year-old Eichenwald, also an MSNBC contributor, offered "to either help [Moran] get a job at New Republic, in seeming exchange for silence, or update the piece with a paragraph naming him. This latter option came with a warning that aligning himself with Sputnik made him unhirable," according to Paste.
Eichenwald, who still works at the NYT, does seem to be a troubled person
GPS has refused Congressional subpoenaes
Said if they did appear, they would take the 5th
Before the suit was filed against Newsweek/Eichenwald, he taunted the plaintiff on twitter. Oops
They are all replies...what statements is Eichenwald replying too? Context matters, doesn't it?
Keep in mind this is the press, and not the DNC
Who are you asking? You do know he put you on his ignore list months ago, right?
Anyone who would take JoeFan's posts and run with it.
I know there are a million of these, but this one is very funny
"National anthem protests were the top reason that NFL fans watched fewer games last season, according to a new survey released by J.D. Power.
The pollster said it asked more than 9,200 people who attended either one football, basketball or hockey game whether they tuned into fewer games and why. Twenty-six percent of those who watched fewer games last season said that national anthem protests, some of which were led by Colin Kaepernick, were the reason....."
And now, Kaepernick is willing to do almost anything to sign with a team.
He will sign short-term, and with no discussion of money.
He will play anywhere
One rumor was the Ravens
But .... Balt fans dont want him either
