    The media gave Trump 1.2 Billion bucks in free press and he doesn’t think it’s enough. The press is like battered wives.

    If Trump becomes President I’m sure he will only accept loyalists as press corps. So the name on the door won’t change

    https://durhaminstitute.wordpress.com/power-of-the-press/journalism/" …The first among them is that the purpose of journalism is to provide people with the information they need to be free and self-governing.

    To fulfill this task:

    Journalism’s first obligation is to the truth.Its first loyalty is to citizens.Its essence is a discipline of verification.Its practitioners must maintain an independence from those they cover.It must serve as an independent monitor of power.It must provide a forum for public criticism and compromise.It must strive to make the significant interesting and relevant.It must keep the news comprehensive and proportional.Its practitioners must be allowed to exercise their personal conscience.… "The fourth estates’ goals are impressive, but …

    Well, they brought it on themselves chasing audiences instead of facts.

    Can’t get over Obama saying he wasn’t playing “gotcha” with FAUX after the third or fourth time?

    The sign in the strip is the natural progression of the far right continual attacks on “unfair” media whenever some right winger comes up with nonsense they actually report on. Very rare nowadays, but it does still sometimes happen.

    Essentially, it’s saying “I lost, and you shouldn’t have reported that.”. Unfair?

    It will be interesting to see the Conservative local media endorsements this fall. And it was Bush’s White House that gave credentials to the internet journalist no one had heard of so he could ask soft ball, leading questions.

    First, al-Jazeera America went out of business, probably because too many cable systems were afraid to carry them; Second, the “journalist” admitted to the bush White House hundreds of times when there were no press briefings was a male prostitute. His website said he was ex-military and a “top”. We always wondered who he was servicing. Any ideas, Karl?

    If you think Trump feels contempt for the media, how do you think he views the American people?

    Please define “THE MEDIA”. Apparently Fox, most local major dailies, ALL Fox local affiliates who carry the Rush, Beck, Hannity, Savage, Levin lineup AREN’T the media? Of COURSE not! They only spout a one-party, part of one party line, so they CAN’T be THE MEDIA!

    On election day, I’m wondering how long before the liberal media declares that Hillary has a massive lead? Will they wait until the polls open?
