Will the Gianforte victory help reporters grow up and be respectful of truth?


The response of the people of Montana seems to be a reflection of most American's attitude toward the arrogant dismissiveness of news media to truth. Will they learn from the response or will they dig their heels in and continue to try to present themselves as people we need because they think we cannot think?

    Yep we sure could use a functioning media. I would feel so much better if I dinn't first have to check three media sources and then get an actual account and then decide. On either side of the political side we do not have a functioning media. TMZ.

    Words which would likely make the person whom they are addressed commit an act of violence. Fighting words are a category of speech that is unprotected by the First Amendment. Chaplinsky v New Hampshire, 315 U.S. 568 (1942)
