    No, that is him not being a pushover for a biased and obviously side taking press. So what you are really mad at is you don't like him and his politics, and are used to back bending Republicans just taking it from press people who don't like them.

    None of this involves ANY first amendment issues. You are just a whiny little baby, nothing more.

    Who said he has taken away the freedom of the press? He is laying the groundwork for neutralizing it and in fact taking affirmative action to neutralize it by suggesting Congress should investigate how the press reports news about him. He has taken a position that a government entity should have some kind of regulatory control of what and how the press transmits political news and government operations and position on policy.

    A government should never be in a position to regulate news and information to the public unless it concerns national security issues of a classified nature.

    Hillary began the fake news business and Trump turned it around on her. If you weren't such a partisan you'd acknowledge that the mainstream media is biased to the left. Lefties are angry with Washington Post for it's tendency of late to attempt to be impartial while the NYT keeps going further off the deep end.

    Says who? The founders made the 1rst Amendment to include a free press. The press at the time was reporting biased political news to support the revolution. You obviously know nothing about how and why the free press was included in the very 1rst amendment to the Constitution. Ever heard of Thomas Paine and a little publication called "Common Sense"? How about Ben Franklyn's Pennsylvania Gazette? Oops, your an uneducated dunce.

    ok,, then what is the threat exactly from Trump? he hasn't attempted to stop their presses. so again, the issue is?

    So in your freedom world the press can call him out but he can't call out the press. Is that pretty much it? you like one-way freedom? LOL, libturd BTW, what is one-way freedom, ...fascism?

    That sounds like a paranoid conspiracy theory. I don't recall Trump ever suggesting Congress should investigate the press. Even if he did, investigation is one thing, regulating is another. What has you scared is the thought that the public will learn how the press actually operates, and they won't be pleased.

    Several leftwing douche bags in this forum have attacked a court decision that said FOX news had the right to lie. If that isn't a call for government regulation of the press, then I've never seen it.
