Rachel Maddow reports Trump's leaked 2005 tax returns. Can bad news by the media also be good news?


Media seems to have tainted many things about the 2016 election from beginning to end. ALL news is written to 1) make most money & 2) reflect the view of the person writing it - meaning 'manipulation' comes by ALL. Most people can spot manipulation - such as this 'report' by Rachel (a liberal) on Trump's tax returns: 1) Makes The Donald look GOOD; and 2) its too old or doesn't have anything to do with how his bankruptsies have been processed. My question isn't easy: Do you think manipulative and/or fake news should be dealt with - or should we let peeps navigate thru it as 'free speech'?

    I agree with you, what 'news' I get is through commentary and releases found on YouTube (as you can see from my post in this thread)... you can find out more about what is going on in the world by perusing youtube for 15 minutes than hours of MSMnews

    I like this answer, but I have never doubted the ability of my fellow humans to intelligently sort thru it since Trump came along. When both sides practice manipulation & accuse each other of it & there seems to be no end in sight, its madden

    CJ your comment falls into the same bs,only you don't think it does because you believe it to be gospel. but, there aren't facts that assist it. birther, being a citizen is a requirement for the presidency. It s b ?d if there is doubt, then ? it.
