    When they start to squeal like stuck pigs, you know the arrow has hit its mark.

    Problem is it is not an honest press. It's a press with an agenda that slants the news to fuel it's agenda. What happened to reporters who reported facts and truth; long gone. May they all fade into obscurity.

    That's sweet. It's almost as if you think any of us care what you think. You've been joke since you started here.
    But we've enjoyed watching you fall over yourself time and time again while being trounced.
    Kinda a kick to the berries video.

    Good times.

    2nd response out if the gate hits the mark.

    I can't imagine what a honest reporting press would look like anymore

    The free press is not the enemy. This I know for a fact. Who is, remains to be seen, I guess.

    It'll be interesting to read how many "defenders of our rights" will speak up, crying that the press (and members thereof) shouldn't enjoy the right to free speech.

    The press does enjoy the 1st Amendment right to free speech, but not to any degree greater than any of the rest of us. They're not "special," no matter how much they think so. The media has free speech, but anyone and everyone, including the POTUS, has an equal right to rebut published "news" when it is untrue or clearly biased.

    They're proving The Donald's point. Don't they even realize that or are they completely out of touch?

    No, it's purely coincidental that 350 newspapers published stories about Trump being mean to them and inciting violence against them on the same day.
    No collusion here, not even a smidgen.
