    She banned them from one town hall, and the reason she did that is she was reaching out to people like abused women and immigrants who probably wouldn't show up if the media was there. She said that before the event was even put on, yet you are accusing her of banning all media. She has said that the media is going to be welcome at future events.

    But what is he going to do ? If they lie about him he has recourse through the courts. If they are just mean to him then that is just tough shit.

    Trump says Google, Twitter, and Facebook are on "troubled territory" and "better be careful"

    This sounds like a threat to me.

    There is nothing that he can really do to them. They are a privately owned business.

    Yep. New idea out there, been floated, I'm not sure who came up with it.


    But these sites, claim to be non-partisan, just providing platforms for others to use.


    But by being selective, and biased, they are verging into "publishing" which has different rules.


    Really Trump should not be threatening them. They should be being reviewed by regulators.

    She's more of a "perspiring" politician about to expire. She doesn't do speeches and interviews very well at all.

    :badgrin:

    Doesn't need to. They are destroying themselves. MOST of them are merely toys of Billionaires with a political grudge and they wouldn't even feel a twinge of pain burning their media investments up in an effect to howl about the last election.

    CNN lost 30,000 more viewers in the most recent rankings. The fake newspapers are bleeding money.

    He does not have to lift a finger. They sealed their own fate.

    I have googled "Trump News" this morning and there seem to be a wide variety of sources. There are really only two stories covered on the front page.
    Rivers of blood if the Republicans lose the vote in november and Trumps beef with Google.

    Trumps own twitter feed is prominent.

    Im at a loss to see what they are doing wrong. Both stories involve the ravings of an unhinged idiot lashing out and both stories suggest Presidential wrongdoing. How do the news outlets portray that in a positive light ?

    How do you deal with this in an adult way ?

    "Little thing: Merry Christmas, right? You couldn't say 'Merry Christmas'," he added, according to US media reports.
