    Boycott at least the daily propaganda briefings and put Trump on notice that they will no longer broadcast any of his live speeches, events or anything else they feel is inappropriate for their viewers.

    Yes.

    It's a win-win.

    Let them boycott. We might actually get some real news instead of made up out rage and hateful negativity for once.

    You don't get any real news from a WH briefing.

    Yes...pretty please. Let's stop the daily lies..I mean briefings. It is bad enough he is covered by the media 24/7...a hour without him would be a relief to many Americans.

    You'd have to cancel 45's Twitter account if you want to get rid of the rage and hateful negativity.

    That's exactly what is happening.

    Yes ....... Trump should suspend the opposition. They are not journalist.

    What do they do when the viewers demand to see the Presidents briefings and take offense at them telling the viewers what is appropriate for them.

    I would find that insulting.

    What will happen is one station will cross that picket line and everyone will flock to them.
