n Thursdays broadcast of MSNBCs The 11th Hour, anchor Brian Williams argued President Trumps criticisms of the media were Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.
During a discussion on Trumps press conference earlier in the day, USA Today Senior Politics Reporter Heidi Przybyla stated, [T]he press provided basically the most essential task that the Founders intended for us to do, which was, we outed a public official, who was lying to the public, about the nature of his contacts about what many would define as a hostile foreign power. That is the most basic function of a free press in this in our society, and the presidents response to that was to have a semi-meltdown, and to accuse us all of purveying fake news, when in fact, his own actions, which were to fire General Flynn, proved that that news was spot on. It was 100% accurate.

I guess we'll be able to test that theory if and when they actually do report facts as opposed hit paces that speculate sordid things without a shred of evidence other than "according to anonymous sources" which is reporter code for "I made it up".
>>Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.<<
Report a fact then we will judge. We haven’t seen one since 11/8/2016.
No one, nor any stipulation or mention of the “media/press/whatever” in our Constitution gives ANY of them the self-assumed RIGHT that they are operating on behalf of the American Citizen - NOTHING! It is all self-styled, self-assumed and self-appropriated.
I know I certainly didn’t elect a damn one of them to hound people in the name of my “right or need to know.” They weren’t elected or appointed. They TOOK that on their own. Screw them! And when I see them get their ass wire-brushed, I’m completely satisfied.
My advice to them if Man the F@ck Up, Buttercups.
Brian Williams lecturing on facts and prestige. LOL.
Williams has no integrity.... period
When I’m looking for facts, I’ve never gone to the leftwing “media”.
I must've missed their "outing" of Susan Rice...
How about since February 1968?
Suck it, Brian.
They’re goal is in there. Restated: Because when you reduce the President/Presidency enough in prestige, he when he does report anything, including facts, those facts are diminished.
I don't have a problem with that. My issue is that you only do that to conservatives. Once again, who in the MSM took eight years of opportunity to find enough spine to ask:
Mr President, in the history of this Republic, you are the first President to sequester virtually every document from your and the First Lady's past. Why is that?
Not one of you clowns had the stones to ask that question. But now that there's a Republican President, all of a sudden you start "outting" things. Sorry, Bucko, but you lost credibility with the American public about 8 years ago.
They’ve created a superiority by selling hearing aids and impotence meds. Therefore, their service means they are higher up than the president and should enjoy wealth and prestige.
Today we learn more facts from eyewitnesses to incidents than we do from the sellers of tampons and sump pumps. A guy on twitter who saw that no hands were raised, no one was saying don’t shoot, is more honest than these shiny lying pimps.
Not one guy other than Sean Hannity ever even tiptoed up to the question, “Mr. President, why don’t you pass e-Verify?”
Absolutely INSANE that it wasn’t asked in eight years.
Well they don't report the facts, so I guess this is a mute point.
The only good thing Brian “Resting Constipated Face” Williams ever did was to father his ridiculously hot daughter.
We get more honest facts and information from the Guardian UK than we get from anywhere in the US. And they are usually first!
Williams was fake news before fake news.
He’s going to pontificate about facts?
Trump argues that the media's criticisms of conservatives are "Because when you vilify the opposition enough in prestige, the sheeple believe it even when facts show otherwise."
Go away, Brian Williams.
