    When you as media obstruct and not just report ?
    When you sensationalize and create false media ?
    When you constantly attack and defame ?
    When you ignore real media issues ?
    When you journalize and editorialize instead of report ?

    You become the enemy of the people .

      There are three good options:

      1. The QAnon secret police can take them out, which is why DC journalists now need security guards when they attend Trump speeches.

      2. We can ban all of them except for Fox News and any others that support Trump (Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, the National Enquirer).

      3. We can throw them in jail if they say bad things about Trump.

      I'm undecided. All three options have potential.

        Horse once called for #2 right here on these forums. It won't be long before he advocates #3. He already favors the president of the United States telling private business owners how to run their businesses. It shouldn't be much of a leap for the president to start telling them who they should fire (oh, wait, he already has), and another short leap to jailing the press for their "fake news.". After all, if you believe they are the enemy of the people....

          Trump has already looked into #3. Fortunately, we have a Constitution in this country.

    Jake , This should show you how politi-sensitive your party has become ,  Remember that old saying ,"He sure can dish it out but when it comes back at him   "?

    Jim Acosta has become a paria of the media obstruction .  Yet , If CNN  didn't have him  they would virtually go dark because of non-interest by viewers .

    PrettyPantherposted 20 months ago

    Horse, no, a free press or Jim Acosta specificslly are not the enemy of the people, despite what your dear leader would like people like you to believe.

    Jake, as demonstrated here, Trump followers are willing to support and enable the debasement of a free press, despite it being a marker for authoritarian leaders like Stalin, Hitler, and Putin.

    Who, exactly, is an enemy of the people? It isn't Jim Acosta.

    Prettypanther , Media bias , fake media , social media ,now social media mixed in with news media .........All of these entities but especially the last  ,social media mixed or influenced with news media ,   has been around since long before Trump and even Obama came into the picture , I and many recognise this and have noted it for years .

    Trump is but following OUR lead in his media attacks not the other way around .  And as long as there is any amount of "fake " in the news media , especially from one ideology , then the news media is the enemy of BOTH ideologies.   How can you claim any neutrality in media even for your party if media favors just your party ? It takes a neutral news media to deliver any resemblance to 'freedom of press "  otherwise it is just a one party "Pravda media .

    I realize that they favor your ideology and that's perfectly  okay with most of your party too , but consider when the tides turn and they likely will down the road  , how unfairly  these "truths " that you now worship  from a biased media will adversely affect your party then  .

    You on the left obviously have no clue about how your  media OR the constitution actually works .   How the first is as constitutionally protected as is the second amendment , So I'll give you a clue .  Nothing Trump can do say or invoke in any way will ever affect the absolute stupidity of a free press .

    Fact.

    The news media can articulate is agenda in any way it can possible dream up .  It is , it has and it will continue to do so ,  to the actual detriment of free speech itself .

      ahorseback:  Here is the first amendment: 

      "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."


      What do you think Trump is doing when he calls the free press fake news and the enemy of the people and when he says don't believe what you see and hear only believe me.  Is he prohibiting and  abridging freedom of speech and the free press?

        The president can voice his opinion just as freely and at will as you or I can Peoplepower , you know that !
        Yet you're going to attempt to hold him to a higher moral standard somehow that the rest of us ?

        You know as well as I that the minute that he abruptly writes legislation or law that infringes - well then you have cause , AND you know what ?  I would join you there !  As blatantly stupid as our news media is right now .

          ahorseback:  Yes, the president should be held to a higher moral standard than the rest of us.  He sets the example for not only his country, but for the  world...and don't give me this crap about Obama.

          When Trump is in his rallies and press conferences and tells people that the MSM is fake news and the enemy of the people and he points to specific reporters and tells them to shut up because they are fake news, do you think his audience just thinks, Oh, that is just Trump voicing his opinion? 

          I think not, It has a profound effect on them and they buy into what he is selling hook, line, and sinker. They don't question him, because they have blind faith in him, like he is their savior...Sieg hiel !

            If CNN or MSM said tomorrow "  We will  commence closing our operations totally tomorrow because Trump called us" Fake News" ,     Would you be surprised ?

            OR , would you think ,"Well , they are at the bottom of the ratings game anyways  ?"

              ahorseback:  I would neither be surprised nor would I think they would be at the bottom of the ratings. 

              Do you even know who owns Fox News?  It is Rupert Murdoch and you don't even know that you have been brainwashed into his agenda of hate, racism, and corporate greed. 

              You want to play the what if game, what if there was no Rupert Murdoch, Fox News, or the NY Post?

              Do you think this country would still be divided? The mission of Rupert Murdoch and Fox News has always been to destroy the democratic party and you and all his followers have played right into his hands.

              I know you are gloating about having one strong party and wishing the other one goes down the tubes, but that is not how our government is supposed to work.  It's supposed to have the construct of checks and balances. 

              What are you going to do when there is no MSM, and no democratic party.  Who are you going to blame then?

              Even Trump needs somebody to blame.  What would he do if there was no fake news and enemy of the people?  Who would he blame, the Russians?  I doubt it. 

              You can't see the game they are playing.  Trump is the hero because he is fighting the big bad MSM media.  There is no Republican Party anymore.  There is the Party of Trump and congress better fall in line or there will be fire and fury.

                Peoplepower , No respectfully , you have so destroyed the integrity of ---your own party---  by allowing a third party "take over" of your party  , The fake news media .

                WHEN such a  number of  NEWS ORGANIZATIONS becomes so fake , so one sided as to alter the very fabric OF the TWO party system ?   .......................
                .............This is where you have to THINK ........That they become  ALL 90% against Trump administration?

                  ahorseback:  So you are calling the MSM, the "third party take over" ?  Trump is actually the third party takeover.  He has taken over the republican party. It is now the party of Trump. 

                  It is just a matter of time before they change the name to Trumpians. He has already started firing people who pose a threat to him.

                  But you know what, he can't get to Mueller and his people.  They are the moles who keep tunneling under ground and indicting Trumpians.  It just a matter of time until they surface and then Bam! 

                  This is not the early 20th century.  We have their lies recorded.  What they said then and what they say now, including Trump.  They can lie politically and get away with it, but not legally and this is where Mueller has them boxed in.

    I don't know that the left understands the reason it is referred to as fake news. It isn't so fake. It takes a truth and, through bias and hatred, distorts it to the point the truth is obscured. But, let's be honest. The far right does it also.

    The problem is the media has no desire to to allow the individual to come to their own conclusions. They want to share their belief and have you believe with them.

    Demonizing those you disagree with by supplying a sound bite that leaves everything out but the tiny point you are pushing is politics, not news. The media should supply all of the facts in an unbiased manner to allow us to formulate our own opinions.

    They have set the stage for the social media mobs. They should set a better example. They claim to be professionals.

            ahorseback:  All of your ranting about the MSM is just your opinion unless you can give concrete evidence of your claims.  Please provide supporting evidence of each of your claims.  Why did you put question marks after each claim?  If you believe them, who are you questioning?

            This is what you said:

            When you as media obstruct and not just report ?
            When you sensationalize and create false media ?
