    JOKE news organisation New York Times (which is no longer interested in actual news) is very angry that there are a bunch of conservatives doing to left wing journalists what they themselves and others have done to right wing journalists, mainly the PATHETIC pieces of human excrement at Media Matters. :roflol:

    One of the USELESS so called 'journalists' responsible for this pile of crap went on MSNBC and said, "what you have here is something very different from what basic journalism is." Yes, something very different from basic journalism like the bread and butter of the organisation that you work for! :roflol:

    DUHHHHH, the Facists tried to silence the media....it was a priority with them. They didn't want the truth printed....same as those in your OP.


    Hey! If a person doesn't like Free Speech in the United States they can take a cue from Trump, LEAVE! :)

    No, I doubt it. There's just nothing in it which violates freedom of speech or freedom of the press.

    I did.

    You have accused someone of fascism, deliver the goods or admit you overreached.

    You made the claim, not I.

    It's not my fault I expect you to back your claims up.

    I don't see quote marks around that.

    :) At least I got an answer to one of my questions: Can any decent person align with blackmail to keep journalists from reporting something the opposition doesn't like??


    And still no proof I called anyone a Fascist :)

    It would seem they are attempting to, or at least the Presidents minions are.

    How is anyone trying to control the media? If it's the truth then there is no problem.

    blackmail is not the way to ensure truth.
