Posted on 11/02/2017 10:40:26 AM PDT by ForYourChildren
In an interview with Arizona Senator John McCain for Thursday’s NBC Today, Senior Correspondent Tom Brokaw invited the Republican lawmaker to attack President Trump and painted the liberal media as the victim: “In the course of your political career, especially as a presidential candidate – as I learned first hand – you had some mixed relations with the press. The President has no use for the press, he has turned the country against us, in many ways.”
McCain was quick to agree with Brokaw’s whining: “Yeah, I think the role of the press is more important than ever before. I hate the press, okay? But the fact is, without a free press in this country, a pillar of democracy is destroyed.”

So the msm found their useful idiot - McCain.
And just as expected, McCain says, “without a free press in this country, a pillar of democracy is destroyed.
What are you implying Mr. Idiot?
No one ever implied there shouldn’t be a free press.
Suck it up, you big crybaby. You guys did it to yourselves.
Free, as in free to publish. And the rest of us are free to ignore or condemn them. And that includes the President. Cry me a river!
That Trump! What CAN’T he do?
Exactly. We don’t have a “free press” that is doing the job it should be doing. The MSM has become a propaganda arm of the DNC.
But to be accurate - the country had turned against the media long before Trump came along.
Yeah, Trump did what most of have been trying desperately to do for 3 decades. The cascade of old media lies has finally caught up with leftist pigs that gained control of what is now enemy #1, the old media mouthpiece of the DNC.
Most people in this country hated the media long before Trump ran for President.
Trump just tapped into it, quite successfully.
Brokaw is inside the bubble.
Wrong again, McInsane... without an HONEST press in this country, a pillar of democracy is destroyed.
Tom Brokejaw is feeling the heat.
Yeah Whatever. We've not had a Free Press since the 1960's. The media today has been bought and paid for by the leftist establishment.
Someone call TommyBoy a WHAAAAMMbulance!
Is this jackass Brokaw still alive?
The MSM always trots out this loser as if he is some “senior statesman”, whenever the MSM is on the ropes.
I guess they hope to keep fooling the rubes with these poseurs.
Lol...what does Brokow think McCain can do about it?
This fool, who has homilies on the radio these days, positions himself as a sage for this age.
He’s nothing of the kind.
The President has no use for the press, he has turned the country against us, in many ways.
Go Trump go!
McCain always loved the adulation of the MSM. Of course, they only give it to him when he’s trashing his own party or a Republican President.
I’m sure he was truly gobsmacked when the media turned on him during the 2008 election. He thought they were his friends.
