Why Donald Trump Is Turning Against the Media


All those thousands of left wing journalists are now thinking that THEY are going to elect our next President.

I hope there comes a day when we can take the press and weed out those who are liar's that try to influence elections. It is not their job and it violates the principles of Journalism for fair and balanced reporting, especially with regards to politics.

I hope they over do them selves into just what they don't want. People are tired and fed up with Journalism that only supports the left wing progressives. IF Trump scares the left, they have only them selves to blame. If Trump should win, they will be the biggest cause.

Time to throttle the left wing press. I am sure there is a way to do it to. Especially if we see a Republican congress and Trump as President. Time to end this media full court press for the left. Time to do something unthinkable to them.

Regards, Kirk
This is interesting from two different perspectives.

First and foremost is the apparent inability of those on the "right" to be able to differentiate between news reporting and opinion writing. There is no "left" or "right" bias in news reporting. By way of example the following is "news" reporting based upon investigative journalism:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ap-fact-c...-election.html

It provides the statement's made and then the facts that would support/discredit the statements. That's reporting and Fact Checking of both Clinton and Trump are necessary for people to make informed decision.

On the flip side is "opinion" writing and it obviously has a political bias.

The second issue of importance is the apparent disregard for Freedom of the Press protected by the First Amendment. Both news and opinion are protected but apparently the "Right-wing" doesn't believe in this First Amendment Right and believes it should be curtailed because it hurts their candidate.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Glad to hear you changed your tune!
Considering your earlier comments mentioned nothing about slander, but legal attacks on claimed lack of objectivity...

No I think Kirk is right, and it has nothing to do with censorship. The only reason Fox news exists is because the main stream, so-called journalists, stopped being journalists and became cohorts of the democrat party. Without Fox we would have a state run media, and THAT sir, IS censorship. And probably a few other words I can't think of right now.

There sure as hell is! You just refuse to see it because they are on your side. Wasn't there a song called "Blinded by the Left" or something like that?

It is not their job to decide who the American people should elect is it?
His words are plain to see.
The editorials he posted earlier whined about BIAS in the media.

You guys can't even be honest in what you yourselves have said...

The reason it exists is because it has a billionaire bank rolling propaganda.

There is no logic in your claims.
Even if "Democrat party" were in bed with the media, that doesn't make it "state run".
The Democrat party is NOT the government.

You are merely a pawn of your masters:

Bond is hardly alone. That the media were biased against the Reagan Administration is an article of faith among Republicans. Yet James Baker, perhaps the most media-savvy of them, owned up to the fact that any such complaint was decidedly misplaced. “There were days and times and events we might have had some complaints [but] on balance I don’t think we had anything to complain about,” he explained to one writer. Patrick Buchanan, among the most conservative pundits and presidential candidates in Republican history, found that he could not identify any allegedly liberal bias against him during his presidential candidacies. “I’ve gotten balanced coverage, and broad coverage–all we could have asked. For heaven sakes, we kid about the ‘liberal media,’ but every Republican on earth does that,” the aspiring American ayatollah cheerfully confessed during the 1996 campaign. And even William Kristol, without a doubt the most influential Republican/neoconservative publicist in America today, has come clean on this issue. “I admit it,” he told a reporter. “The liberal media were never that powerful, and the whole thing was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures.” Nevertheless, Kristol apparently feels no compunction about exploiting and reinforcing the ignorant prejudices of his own constituency. In a 2001 pitch to conservative potential subscribers to his Rupert Murdoch-funded magazine, Kristol complained, “The trouble with politics and political coverage today is that there’s too much liberal bias…. There’s too much tilt toward the left-wing agenda. Too much apology for liberal policy failures. Too much pandering to liberal candidates and causes.” (It’s a wonder he left out “Too much hypocrisy.”)

The mainstream press has never been on the side of the Libertarian Party. At best we get small back page news coverage and virtually no political opinion writers spend any time expressing opinions about actual Libertarians or even Republicans like Gary Johnson that's the Libertarian Party candidate (because the Libertarian Party doesn't have anyone with the experience in high levels of government required to be the President)
