    How better to solidify power than to call the free press into contempt

    Do not believe what they say...they are not to be trusted
    I am the only one you can trust, Believe me

    wow. and you started off so unbiased in your views that means we should believe you and your well thought out discussion.

    it's not your job to tell me what to think and/or feel either, but here we are.

    The people are free to believe who they want to believe.

    That is the strength and weakness of any representative form of government.

    Your just mad that progressives and their less left allies are no longer the ones in total control of the narrative.

    If your side has the truth, and is right, you shouldn't have to worry about your so called falsehoods from the other side.

    /—-/ Dem Presidents attack Fox News, Rush and Hannity without a peep of protest out of your pie hole.

    The series of stories about the secretary of state were complete and total fabrications. They were denounced by the secretary himself. Calling the press on their lies is not an attack on the first amendment.

    The anti-press rhetoric coming out of Trump reminds me of the rhetoric coming out of Nixon in 1972
    Didn't work out well for him

    Truly the lies of Faux News certainly filled the sails of the Obama Schooner.. Accusation of a foreign birth, giving guns to drug cartels, using the IRS, 'You didn't build that', Stand Down Orders, and watching a 7 hour battle in Benghazi, are but a few of the phony scandals Faux convinced their viewer were gospel truth. Many will still try and argue the phony points to this day.
