Tomorrow approximately 100 U.S. newspapers, small and large, have agreed to Marjorie Pritchard’s idea to publish anti-Trump editorials.

Each of the newspapers will prove themselves to be devotees of fake news in more ways than one.

“We are not the enemy of the people,” said Ms. Pritchard, a deputy managing editor of The Boston Globe last Friday, referring to a characterization of journalists that President Trump has used when criticizing the media — not just newspapers — for fake news. Which includes omitting facts that would completely change the story if reported.

This past weekend, for example, on the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa returned to commit more violence. But very few white supremacists appeared so the Antifa attacked the media — NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew. Threatening Mr.  Perry, the Antifa knocked his camera out of his hands while screaming profanities at him and his crew.

Ignoring the attack, NBC simply said the media was “heckled.” Headlines at CNN, The New York Times and  The Washington Post called the Antifa “anti-hate protesters.”

They didn’t report what happened because they — the media — have an agenda of fake news, which is to make Trump supporters look bad, very bad.

And to make leftist liberals look good. Very good.

Because their chosen candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, didn’t win the election that they said would. And they’re still mad. Very mad.

It’s sad and disturbing that NBC would choose to ignore violent leftist assaulting their their own employees, said Nicholas Fondacaro on newsbusters.org “in exchange for railing against President Trump’s voters, but this appears to be the world we live in now. The assault also came after the entire liberal media had been trying to convince the public that Trump supporters were the violent ones reporters had to watch out for.”

Mr. Trump has never said that ALL of the media are disingenuous or that they all publish and promote fake news. The media he has gone after —with justifiable criticism because they are agenda driven — are CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, the Post, the Times, Los Angles Times and many others. They know what they are doing. And have done.

Making her plea last week to newspapers to make an impression on Americans, Ms. Pritchard said, “I hope it would educate readers to realize that an attack on the First Amendment is unacceptable. We are a free and independent press. It is one of the most sacred principles enshrined in the Constitution.”

Well, yes it is. But if the media at large ever paid attention to the First Amendment, it has now pretty much forgotten what it says and what it means.

The First Amendment espouses five rights: Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to assemble and freedom to petition the government for a readdress of grievances.

In a summary of what John Peter Zenger endured and accomplished as a printer and as a voice for liberty and freedom of the press when accused of libel in 1733 in New York City — when libel was published information opposed to the government and truth was irrelevant — Jan LaRue, senior legal analyst with the American Civil Rights Union, said Mr. Zenger’s lawyer, Andrew Hamilton, argued vigorously for the right of a newspaper to criticize freely and truthfully the acts and conduct of government officials. The court wouldn’t permit Mr. Hamilton to prove truth as a defense; nevertheless, the jury ignored the court and acquitted Mr. Zenger.

The media has every right to “criticize freely and truthfully” acts and conduct of government officials, but not to lie to promote an agenda. Which it does now.

The media is now celebrating the pathetic Omarosa Manigault Newman, says columnist Patricia McCarthy, “with her book of lies and accusations that everyone knows are fabricated. The anchors on all the MSM outlets know exactly who and what she is but are wooing her in the hope that she will be the one to take Trump down. They never give up. They never learn. From the Access Hollywood tape to Omarosa, they are confident that each new lowlife with a story to tell will be the one to overturn the election. They are like Energizer bunnies; they have motors but no brains. They never give up, no matter how ridiculous the attacks on Trump become. In short, they are utter fools.”

In 19 months, Ms. McCarthy continues, Mr. Trump has reinvigorated the economy 4.1% through tax cuts and deregulation. Which has spurred employment and created new lows for unemployment 3.9%, especially among African-Americans and Hispanics. And the use of Food Stamps has fallen by a few million. And he is reinvigorating America’s armed forces.

The person who accomplished all this is President Donald Trump, the person leftist, liberals, and the leftist, liberal media, want to destroy. That is their agenda.

That agenda says leftists today don’t have the best interests of America at heart.

When newspapers follow Ms. Pritchard’s wishes and publish anti-Trump editorials and columns tomorrow, they will illustrate just how right Mr. Trump is to label them as disseminators of fake news.

I went back and watched some of the pre-election love fests of Mrs. Clinton the media rammed in the face of America. The confidence of her imminent win was embodied in every news media possible. Then I reviewed election night footage and the utter horror of the liberals when they realized they did not win. I knew then what would follow and they have not disappointed.

It is comforting that liberals are melting into the loathing pot of their arrogance and self righteousness. They step in their own s#@t at every turn.

It is awesome that Mrs.Clinton has been missing in political action since her humiliating defeat. Hopefully, this administration will take criminal and civil action against her, Bill and their corrupt foundation and send them to prison to spend the last of their, never to be, glory days

Let the liberals belly ache. Best news ever. Roll Trump roll!

Like the politics of today more likely than not the large urban area papers are anti-Trump and more rural area papers like this one is pro-Trump. Same with media in general. Some of them think its great that their crews are attacked by Antifa. If that doesn't prove their fakeness and stupidity what does?

Let us not forget the 'election' was in FACT RIGGED BY CLINTON, and she still lost, honestly, how much more of an idiot do you have to be????????

This, for me is the most hilarious item of the hoopla. [beam]

Trump is a draft dodger who said that back in the 1960's his Viet Nam was avoiding catching a sexually transmitted disease. He deserves neither the respect nor the support of our community which is so deeply rooted in the finest traditions of the military.

Adm. William H. McRaven, who oversaw the Navy SEAL raid that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, said this to Trump today:

“Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.

"A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

"Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.

"If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.”

Will the good admiral tell us what he thinks of the Clintons' behavior, BO apologizing for America and Brennan voting communist?

dc

One doesn't have to be a civilian to get on the far left wing ship of fools and be part of this coup d'etat or whatever you care to label it. To have a fettish for HC and the crooked DNC joining in with BO, his DOJ, intel agencies with Brennan leading, etc. to steal an election is about as bad as it gets. If those who have already gone down with Ohr and others on deck is not enough to open some eyes then too bad. Anyone who wants to play loyalist to this crew of pirates against the ship of state can give up all they want. Want to throw in your retirement pay? Help yourself.

You guys have to be living with your heads in the sand. these news outlets, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, the Post, the Times, Los Angles Times pretty much cover the majority of new outlets, so Fox and Washington Times. You can defend this president all you want, but he is an unstable sick individual. He feel so closed in and so worried that the Mueller is coming to get him, so he lashes out each day on twitter, or removing people. When a person continually says the same thing almost daily, "no collusion" makes the rest of us there is some collusion. Save him if you must, but the rest of us think he won't make it to the end of 2019 . As things come out he will eventually leave before the end of this administration. He is alone, just look at how many photos show him with his hand crossed arms close to his body, insecure behavior. He reminds me of the "dog" that chases the car and when he get it, doesn't know what to do with it. Sad. Mind you I was not a lover of Hillery either.

Opinion pages are just that opinions. As people say, "Opinions are like a....., everyone has one. Most news is not fake.

This editorial fails on every part of being un-biased. The ..President... has, as of July 31st, 2018 made 4,229 false or misleading claims. He has recently picked up the pace because it was only (!) 2,000 after one year. The average of false or misleading claims per day in June and July was 16 – sixteen. This rag does not even make an effort to hold the person who holds the highest office in the country accountable for even one of those lies. Instead it seems to be important to use newsbusters as a source to bash liberals, who are not in office. Newsbuster do not believe in science. Science is for pagans. Evolution, which is proven beyond reasonable doubt, is a hoax. Some years ago the founder of newsbusters was on Faux News, the favorite news source of the ...President..., saying that that Obama looked like a ghetto crack user. Yeah, newsbusters is a credible and non-biased source…

Geez, makes me wonder why on earth would a hater of 'this rag' even bother to give it a second glance?

Really, if i do not like a station, i simply change it. (and probably will not go back).

Now, that has to be both 'FALSE AND MISLEADING' , as presented in the comments by some folks whom detest 'this rag'.

Truth be told, they LOVE IT, and every time they post , regardless of the bloat, it adds credence to the fact that they took time to read, comment, and be happy!
