The Free Press Died Today and Fox News took part

Faux News is now promoting Jim Acosta assaulted the intern, there go to
line seems to be he karate chopped her arm or he wrestled with her.

They seem to be pushing this, on social media and pushing for calls
for Jim to be arrested for assault.

Sarah Sanders has now joined in on the act.

This moment right now, is the day that the free press officially got murdered.

I cant fathom how big this moment is.

Jim's career is going to be bought down in the next few hours, and trump's pals
at Faux is running with it.

Im just so upset at whats going down at this very moment.

28. Not sure Brettdale really needs reassurance.

I just did a sloppy count and, whatever's it's about, this is one of about a dozen original threads brettdale on this one subject, the second with the end of free press in the title, plus dozens more original threads over the past couple days. If they were rallies, Trump would be orange with jealousy.

Probably just needs time to adjust to the end of our free press and will be fine in the morning.

4. Acosta's career is not going to be brought down on this. The video is very clear what happened

One thing that is concerning though is that one of trump's goons may try to do harm to him, and I think that is a very real danger

7. The report of the death of the free press is an exaggeration. (With apologies to Mark Twain.)

The Fourth Estate will not go quietly into that good night. I have every confidence they will fight on. CNN is backing Jim Acosta. All media hell would break if it did not.

Reporting the news and asking tough questions is why these folks majored in journalism. It's what they do. I fully expect media professionals to act professionally and do their job.

I don't personally give a flying fig what Faux News and Sarah say. Neither represent professional journalism. Another profession comes to mind but Momma raised me better than to suggest Sarah is practicing that profession.

And Jim Acosta will be fine. CNN is backing him and the video shows he didn't assault the intern in any way. It's disgusting that they pulled his credentials but the free press is fighting back. Don't be such a defeatist.

29. If that's what they're calling "assault"...

It should be pretty easy to bring charges against TRMP and every other Republican who ever laid a hand on anyone else on video.

Remember when Dickless Don shoved that guy at the summit aside to be in front at a photo op? He certainly assaulted that man if Acosta "assaulted" that intern by not relinquishing the microphone to her. People being assaulted at his rallies?

Yeah, I know it won't fly. The Reeps are sensitive little snowflakes who want to protect their own from any perceived slight. IOKIYAR.

25. Well, To Be Fair, It Wasn't Hours And Hours

It added up to maybe an hour and a half. Of course, that's 90 minutes too much!

Really, i'm agreeing with you here! Just kidding.

But, i'm sure you remember that CNN (yeah the network they hate) cut away from HRC's economic policy proposal speech to show an empty podium for nearly 15 minutes. HRC's speech ended 12 minutes after they cut to the empty suit, er i mean podium, so they could have shown the whole speech and still shown an empty podium for 3 minutes.

He would wither up and die if the media ignored him.

33. "Fox Press" is dead and has been for decades

Free Press? Not so much. The National Inquirer can print things about Ted Cruz's father cavorting with Lee Harvey Oswald. It's a lie, of course, and the Inquirer lacks the chops to "kill" the free press by its phony reportage.

Same-same Fox. People with brains -- most Americans -- are not impressed by any of the transparent lies those pro panda mouthpieces utter. People with brains have better things to do with their time.

F**k Fox

Dump launched an attack on the free press, but the free press is alive and well. Don't give Dump credit for victories he hasn't yet achieved. Please reduce the drama and hysteria a litttle.

He did no such thing. I also watched the intern. It seemed like she was getting herself into position to step in and do something. I don't know if this was staged or not but Acosta still didn't do anything out of line IMHO.
