    Default Is Admitting The News Is Actually Real Part of President Trump's New Bipartisan Era

    Is Admitting The News Is Actually Real Part of President Trump's New Bipartisan Era?

    Any bipartisan State has to have freedom of the press. That must certainly include investigative journalism and criticism of elected officials.

    A well informed populace is essential to the survival of a self-governed State.

    Is the news media no longer 'the enemy of the State?'

    That's what embracing bipartisanship means.

    So far, he has only talked about what Democrats should give up.

    What is President Trump prepared to give up?

    No. It is legitimate in their world to deny reality. Just another tool in the kit.

    Hello Micawber,

    So, it's sort of like his old double standard where if it's good, President Trump takes credit for it; but if it's bad he blames somebody else?

    As seen in the wild gyrations of the stock market where President Trump has actually taken credit for the stock market rising above 25,000 on three separate occasions now? (and counting...)

    But of course he had nothing to do with it when it fell back down each time. That was probably illegal immigrants.

    Speaking of immigrants I heard that apprehensions of illegal immigrants crossing the border are actually at the lowest level in 46 years. It's hard to figure why border security is such a big crisis all of a sudden.

    Maybe if he just got Mexico to pay for it...

    Hey, if the DOW drops below 25,000 AGAIN, President Trump will have another opportunity to claim how he is making America great again when it climbs back above 25,000 for the 4th time!

    For Trump, the news about the DOW is only real when it's rising. Otherwise, he imagines it simply doesn't exist.

    ... and to his Point; Presidential Harassment ... let's not forget.

    "The Republicans never did this to President Obama"?

    Off the top of my head, GOP Congress investigated:

    -- Fast & Furious ATF operation
    -- IRS/Lois Lerner
    -- Benghazi
    -- Obamacare website snafu
    -- Solyndra

    NOPE! No freedom of the press if a REPUBLICAN DOESN'T WANT IT! Particularly no freedom of the press if TRUMP doesn't want it. No freedom of the press and NO OVERSIGHT by the CONSTITUTIONAL empowered executive branch who were ONLY able to tell us how they were shut down and shut out by the POWER OF THE PRESS.

    Let them SCREAM 'undisclosed sources', 'anonymous sources' until Trump's tax returns, Russian contacts and peeing bimbos are on the front of every newspaper and website on the PLANET.


    PS Especially no freedom of the press for Republicans who want to shove a needless, senseless war down the throats of Americans because they want the OIL! Remember?

    Under President Trump's new 'era of bipartisanship,' the media is completely free to report anything they like about him; - as long as it is favorable!

    Nearly Everyone Wants Mueller's Report Made Public



    https://politicalwire.com/2019/02/07...report-public/


    A new CNN poll finds that 87% of Americans say special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators should produce a full, public report on their findings, a sentiment that crosses party lines.

    What the republican party is now is an ARM OF RUSSIAS DICTATOR PUTIN

    they created Fox to lie for them

    The republican party PLANNED for this by ending the fairness doctrine for news coverage


    It was all part of the Carl Rove plan for a permanent majority for the republican party.

    a lie filled republican "news" arm

    Election cheating designed to keep Americans from voting so they could steal elections


    now the whole gig is up


    now the republican party dies


    they take fox and the NRA with them to their grave


    America becomes a Democracy again

    He didn't actually say CNN is real news did he? I hope not. It would be very disappointing if he did.

    Not to my knowledge. But it's true. CNN is a reliable reputable main stream news source for real news.

    LOL! What if CNN actually admitted that they constantly torture, twist, and slather the semantics on everything Trump says or does until there's no WAY you can tell if it's real news or not? And CNN ain't the only snakes out there. If I want political news, I listen to what the President or his spokespeople say. He's a plain spoken guy and he's easy to understand without going through a bunch of talking heads that hate him.
