    The media has done nothing but excoriate Trump from his first day as President. Why on Earth do they think he will help them more than other Americans? They can just wait for their $1,200 stimulus check like everybody else. We don't need 24/7 coverage of the virus, it's scaring the bejeezus out of the elderly. My lady friend nurse tells me the old folks are scared to the point of shaking and hyperventilating just coming to the clinic she works at. We all know what to do by now. The media is terrorizing people of this country, akin to yelling "fire" in a crowded theater. The first amendment needs some freedom of speech limitations. Make it a crime to induce panic in the population.

    Democrats would never agree to that, it's the only way they can win elections anymore.

    They should all write books like Acosta did.

    There's nothing essential about the news media. We would be as well off or better off going back to town criers.

    Acosta was horrid today. He must have been severley abused as a child and still suffers from arrested development.

    We shouldn’t give a dime to any corporation. That the average American is expected to carry a 90 day emergency fund but corporations cannot go two weeks...

    No thanks

    I am in my 30’s and this is the second round of industry bailouts we have done just since I have been able to vote — what we are doing is no longer capitalism and it needs to die.

    Let’s bankrupt the free press to hide trumps corona incompetence? Odd plan. We should rely on the state for all news. That sounds like a great idea.

    95% of media jobs are BEHIND the camera. They worry about lighting and sound and sets - not the content. Why are you hating on those blue collar workers?

    An anchor on the local TV station here gave a short public service message saying to have hope, that we will come through as we always do. Some received it with venom and mocked him.

    It's a whole new way of negative thinking out there. Scold, mock, taunt, rail against all things.

    Well . . . most of them will be getting a one time only stimulus check and so they can claim that they did finally earn something off their degree plan. Years and years after the fact.

    Well, looking at how they treated Trump leading up to the last election, when the ran "the most qualified person ever to seek the office", that would not be the case!

    LOL!

    By remaining at their jobs, they're choosing to support those who spew nonsense...

    By remaining at their jobs they get to feed their families and stay off welfare. And since the majority of news stories are not controversial, you’re telling them they should starve their kids over 5% of news stories that YOU don’t like. **** that noise.

    Yes, Kreskin, that's what I'm telling them.

    Jesus H. Christ.

    I have a couple of friends who are bartenders. They've been worried sick about paying their bills. Both of them got hired on Thursday by a grocery chain (Publix) at $15 an hour, working in the deli department. There are other jobs out there that don't support the POS media...

    FYI, it already is a crime to yell fire in a crowded room, to cause a panic for a false situation. The media, like everyone else is following orders about what is going on, you don't like the news, well I guess it's your ulcer, but to make up the issue that they are creating the panic is once again BS. Trump has earned the criticism !!!!!

    You claim you're a professional photographer - I guarantee you that you have worked for clients that you would disagree with politically. You can stomp your foot and rend your clothes but your hypocrisy is plain for all to see.

    The media is NOT responsible for the DATA that shows that your criminal IMPOTUS has FAILED to protect We the People.
