    they covered it after the fact. Not as it was happening. No one got anyone on the record telling them to stay in the van. Any fool could have predicted what was going on. Yet, they all sat on their butts and complied with being censored by the WH.

    If they had balls, your country wouldn't be in a position where people could see trump as a legitimate best option.

    I understand that, but it’s damn frustrating when news organizations do not have to adhere to rules of responsible journalism. As a result the narrative becomes more important than the actual facts involved. So, yes I’m sick of of being told a networks political version of the news!

    The press has made their beds and now they get to lie in it. Most of the nations reasonable people see the idiotic press as what they are, mouth pieces for the left and it's agenda's.

    This attack is dangerous. BUT THEY WON'T WIN! CONGRESS didn't bring NIXON down, the press did. And the 2 NEWSPAPERS (ironic, huh) are here 40 years later and are going to do it again. They don't have to make up a single syllable.
    Hannity is not the press. He is a political commentator.

    We lost the fourth estate some time ago, when the MSM chose to place politics above everything else.

    They did miss an opportunity there, didn't they? That Pence was pulling off a stunt should have been obvious to everyone.

    They did to an extent when the White House was forced to suspend cameras during the briefings under Spicer.

    Look, unless you want the "press" to be antifa they're already doing whatever they can to be as biased and one sided as possible. They've actually taken it to the point of losing the trust of the majority of citizens in this country.

    Yeah, its gotten so bad even the majority of Democrats not longer believe them.

    well, I don't need a poll to tell me what I'm watching. Do you? You seem to keep missing the point. It's up to the consumers of news to decide for themselves what's "fake news". Not the president. They haven't done enough to push back on the WH efforts to discredit them. Whether they are bias or not is a completely different issue.

    and just look at the way they're all covering Trump's threats against the free press. As if they're spectators. Still trying to give the impression that they're unbiased. You can't cover Trump like that. Their profession is under attack. This isn't the time to be passive. This is a time to be outraged. Every network out there should be standing together with their partners in this news letting their viewers know...THIS IS NOT NORMAL OR OK.
