    And again...
    Trump tweets video of himself slamming and punching ‘CNN’
    And the result...
    Trump's CNN Tweet Wasn't Threat Against Journalists, Aide Says

    And, and, and...
    Every week, maybe everyday...I can't keep up...I don't think the media can keep up.

    This seems surreal and a reality show.
    Nothing's real anymore...

    EXCEPT that it's a decoy and distract method...as the other work happens
    Counseled by Industry, Not Staff, E.P.A. Chief Is Off to a Blazing Start

    Ignore the man behind the curtain
    Ignore even the long time staffers

    Right now, I think I'd like to try Pence.
    Hopefully, I'd feels safer and stabler...more sane??

    Hell, make Ryan prez.
    Someone at least straight-forward.

    At least the media would be able to correctly interpret the actions and events.
    Do you think they are overwhelmed???

    That is the tricky part. The conservatives are trying to implement their tea party approved and funded agenda quietly where they can, and are having some success at firing people or not filling the government jobs to downside the government like they want. Even though I'm not sure if they are doing it on purpose or are incompetent and can't find the worst person for the job who will help dismantle it or prove that government is bad and that agency isn't needed.

    The tweets are distracting the news media from doing the hard investigative journalism work and probably making people turn off the news. The bigger issue is what will this mean in 2019-2020 during the next election and the sheer volume of distractions that is easy for the media to talk about and to give out free publicity.

    The Media Needs To Stop Rationalizing President Trump’s Behavior

    And this is a neutral stats oriented entity saying this...

    The media has a bad habit of giving the benefit of the doubt or even spinning a story to mute or PC it.
    They need to start tackling not just Trump but ALL leaders and issues.
    Take the fuckin' gloves off.

    You're getting PAID to give us the REAL deal and news.
    Facts.
    Gum-shoe it.
    R&D on events.

    You call yourself a reporter??
    PUT IT OUT THERE!!
    Facts, NOT spin.

    Leave the spin to the politician you're supposed to be checking and going after.
    ANY pol, ALL sides, ANYONE anywhere anytime.

    Do your fucking job.
    I'm paying good money for your news...or seeing your annoying ads.

    And the other side of media...
    Internet Billionaires Prepare for Their Public Shaming

    Facebook, Twitter and otherwise needs to get their heads out of the sand.
    Start dealing with the fake news and manipulators.
    I think you make more than enough money to deal with it.

    It's the same concept as chemical manufacturers, food brands and drug companies, etc...
    YES.
    Your shit may be HARMING others...do something about it. :mad:

    If they can come up with algorithms to sell us shit, they can certainly do it to weed out that kind of stuff.

    White House briefings grow rare under Trump

    As the Washington Post motto now states...
    "In Darkness Democracy Dies"

    Let's get them to allow some light in...or shine it on them more.
    Cockroaches don't like lights often.

    National Enquirer hid damaging Trump stories in a safe

    I guess some rumor rags aren't above playing games themselves....

    Nice to know they're essentially blackmailing some to get more info to use in their media and thus make more money.
    Quite a racket.
    And so, the need for immunity...

    What comes around goes around.
    Karma headlines here.

    National Enquirer being sold to former newsstand mogul

    Too late, the damage is done.
    Ya helped the Troll get in...interesting;y coming from pro trolls

    Now for generic tabloid rather than politically biased tabloid.
    I wonder if we'll get better quality rumor and innuendo?? ;)

    I don't know how anyone can read that report and not see that Trump is a problem.

    Is sticking it to the Dems so blinding that one can't see how flawed Trump is?
