I Am Sick Of The Press And Their E-Mail Witch Hunts While Ignoring A Rapist/Scammer/Predator

This is making me sick, how much they show Trump spewing his garbage, and then beat the death out of a horse that doesn't even matter to attack Hillary.

Our press is not free. It has morphed into a sick animal that needs to be dealt with sooner or later. I am tired of wanting to vomit when I turn on my TV, and I want news.

Don't have the answer but what I see is horrifying.

After 25 years of right wing hate radio, and endless lies by Fox, half our country is idiot zombies, and the rest of us have to pay the price ever day. Think about what a "think tank" does, and why. You begin to understand. Distortion for corporate interest.

This American is sick of it.

For Profit Fifth Estate.

Something has gone really wrong.

Anyone agree?

2. Yes. That's what happens when 6 people own the entire god damn media.

And when they are no laws against lies going over the airwaves this is what you get. Faux has spent 3 decades lying to people.

3. Publicly funded elections, now.

Every candidate gets the same budget, the same amount of media time, and clearly defined election periods that are much shorter than 2 years.

4. I'm pretty sure that Trump has gotten some bad press...

 

... like non stop when the Billy Bush tape broke.

5. There should be a fine for every lie or misrepresented piece of information in the media

 

Not a little fine...but a fine significant enough to inspire the press to VERIFY facts 100% before reporting. That would put an end to all the conjecture and nonsense.
