Left-wing News Media Selective Editing

    Cable news sites like CNN need to be left-out of the presidential campaigns.  CNN false news was caught for their sneaky-editing of what Donald Trump actually said to make it sound as if he was saying something he did not say.  That is political media corruption in favor of the Democratic party when  Mr. Trump is running in the Republican party.

    I expect that we will be seeing more and more of this kind of dirty dealing by CNN as the presidential election heats up. 


    Should the FCC declare CNN a political org for the Democrat Party and make them abide by all associated rules and fines?  Or, maybe Trump should buy CNN. Problem solved!

    This sneaky editing crap will only increase support for Trump.
    These guys at CNN are the real clowns with all their false news. 

    Hey, I'm being nice here, really I am!  smile

      Colorfulone, this was excerpted from a Fox News article.
      But a separate exchange with NBC News muddied the picture of his position further.

      The reporter initially asked Trump whether there should be a database to track Muslims.

      “We should have a lot of systems,” Trump responded, but then went on to tout the importance of a strong border and a border wall. Asked whether he would like to implement that, Trump responded:

      “I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.”

      That single line was swiftly interpreted in several news stories as Trump’s endorsement of a database for Muslims, in turn prompting a widespread backlash. Some stories even stated that Trump had proposed a “plan” to register Muslims in a database.

      However, in the NBC News exchange, Trump appeared to be referring in that single line to border and immigration security measures, because he then said the effect would be, “It would stop people from coming in illegally.”

      Yet the reporter went on to ask Trump directly, once again, about a database for Muslims, and Trump did not dismiss the idea.

      Instead, when asked how to do it, Trump said: “It would be just good management.”

      Asked if those running it would have to go to mosques, he said: “Different places. You sign them up … but it’s all about management.”
      Brietbart is definitely an opinionated site, so to avoid leftwing bias, I went to Fox News where there is no doubt of that.

      It still appears that Trump is for databases on Muslims when looking at this exchange. Why do you need to sign people up at mosques, what is the purpose of gathering this information? He did not dismiss the idea when press on it and even explained how he would do it.

      In spite of the CNN slip of the tongue, it appears that Trump still favors databases on Muslims.

        I'm short on time right now Cred.  Here is a video clip with the FBI Director James Comey. Its impossible for the government to know who anyone is if there isn't any information collected in their database.  He is mainly speaking about Syrian refugees but that goes for anyone else as well. 


        Q:  "Why do you need to sign people up at mosques, what is the purpose of gathering this information?"

        A:  I do not have a need to do that. 

        Q:  What do you think is the purpose of the FBI collecting information on Muslims where the US is concerned?  Or, for Homeland Security to collect data on people foreign or domestic? 


        Anyway, the mainstream media's job is to report news fairly.  Should the FCC declare CNN a political org for the Democrat Party and make them abide by all associated rules and fines?

          You have been acquitted for now. The New York Times, a responsible journalistic source, has Trump saying he would database the Syrian refugees which is not to be unexpected as they are an unknown quantity. That is quite a bit different than his saying he would database all Muslims using mosques as sign up points.

          So, ok, the wrong doers need to be corrected.

            Good morning, Cred. 

            I am "acquitted"?  What was the criminal charge again?  M'dear when did we ask permission to approach the bench?  Was this in a dream late at night?  Walk me through it...


            CNN should not be allowed to run presidential debts since they cannot be trusted to play nice and be fair.   
            What they did was sabotage and much more.  Trump shouldn't let it slide. 


            Hope you have a nice day!  smile

              "Acquit" is in reference to your not using rightwing propaganda to make your points. I was able to corroborate your points using mainstream and trusted sources of journalism that I trust more.

                Aw, I see now, thank you for explaining that Cred. 

                I am in the habit of checking things out before I even consider believing half of what I read.  Its gotten so I cannot trust everything I read on Wikipedia, and that was my trusted go to source for many years.  Anyone can write a Wiki, I use to.

                I'm glad that you are in the habit of corroborating, I find more leads that way. 

                But, its pretty simple how the news media works.

      The news media is biased. Tell us something we didn't know already.

    The more the mainstream media tries to make Republicans look stupid the more they reduce the trust the general public has in their reporting. 

    I suppose they believe most people do not know who wrote the Constitution, and will believe whatever they say.  They sure tried to make Ben Carson look like he was stupid when he said on C-Span that Thomas Jefferson "tried to craft our Constitution in a way that it would control people's natural tendencies.""

    I sure wish the media would knock this kind of crap off, but then it is an election year and they are showing their cards.  Cheats!

    Trump said he saw Muslims in New Jersey celebrating after the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers. 

    The MSM were saying that didn't happen. Well, there are a lot people saying otherwise because they saw it with their own eyes, and authorizes investigated it and made reports. 

    http://worldtruth.tv/i-live-in-jersey-a … we-saw-it/

    (Read the comments on that article)

    Was the Washington Post lying in an article on September 18, 2001
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/ … ;tid=ss_fb

    "The FBI investigation into the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon has led agents back to a familiar area: northern New Jersey.

    It was there, in Jersey City, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, that a Muslim cell plotted the 1993 bombing of the twin towers and sought to destroy other New York landmarks as part of an urban guerrilla war against the United States."

      Is there any such thing in the conservation mindset of the concept of innocent until proven guilty?  There is no such thing as blanket condemnation of a religion or ethnic group. Witch hunts are not the answer.

        There is a lot of information online and in books about "muslim sleeper cells in america".  They are terrorist groups. I do not see how that is a "blanket condemnation of a religion or ethnic group" when ISIS and Al Qaeda intelligence / moderate terrorist groups were created by the United States (everyone knows that) but they aren't moderates anymore they have evolved.  The Soviet Union was the reason for the intel and the Iron Curtain did fall.  The terrorist groups are mercenaries that go over to which ever side is paying the best. 
        I appreciate when you spend a little time on a subject and shine some light on things.

        I have gotten some good leaks info. out of the WH, from CNN especially via preferred reports.

        Hope your day has been a good one, mine has.

    Gosh, I guess decades of watching the liberal media make stuff up and smear people they disagree with has left the majority of Americans distrustful of the media. As Andrew Breitbart famously told the liberal MSM: Your business model isn't the problem; YOU are.

    According to a new Pew Poll, 65% of Americans do not trust the media.  Only 65%?

    If you want to see the agenda ,, the unspoken mission statement and the impending direction of  American media , Watch Democracy Now , with Amy Goodman , read a few of her columns .

    My advice ?  "Know Thine Enemy Well ".............

    There is an implied mission agenda to MSNBC , NBC , CNN , .......they simply assume that everyone listening has already made up their mind to be left of center !

    One way or the other the left , WITH HE HELP OF TODAYS MEDIA will   seek to attain  that pie in the sky ,socialist utopian society !
