    I don't know about this time but the last time CNN was whining about being excluded, Trump had already taken a question from another CNN reporter so they weren't excluded.

    well they were blocked today. The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed were also among those excluded from the meeting, which was held in White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s office. The meeting, which is known as a gaggle, was held in lieu of the daily televised Q-and-A session in the White House briefing room. Trump claims the MSM is our biggest enemy.

    MSNBC: Our job (the media) is to control exactly what people think.

    Yeah. She probably didn't mean it to come out that way, but it did.

    One of the newer mouth pieces of CNN is Podesta which has been linked to pedophile. Here is a video which I could not listen to all because it made me sick to my stomach. These news media go after someone who says it but leaves along someone that does it. Please be cautioned on this vdeo.

    I don't know what to think about the pedophile accusations. That video is horrible but I see nothing there to indicate that it was John Podesta. Sure, the voices are similar, and it's not as if I have any reason to think that he wouldn't be capable of such a thing. I no longer think that it's a crazy conspiracy theory, but I'm not convinced. That doesn't mean that it wasn't him, of course. Large-scale pedophilia seems to the thing among those in power all over the world so there's no reason to think that it couldn't happen here. I won't pretend to understand it, and I don't even want to understand it, but it's just too easy for people who know what they are doing with film, with sound, and with photographs to make something out to appear to be something other than what it is.

    Now that they have arrested an anti-Trump black liberal for the Jewish community center threats, we can expect the media to lose interest in this story.

    @Ken Anderson
    I fail to fathom why pedophilia would be tantamount to vibrant interest among those having part in the power brokerage. Why would weird and despicable patterns of behavior be centered about the elite?
    Guess you had to be there........

    I can't take the media anymore, they're not reporting news just trying to find fault with everything Trump does. Just report the facts and let me form my own opinion about them...that's all I ask.

    I can give so many examples but here's one I just looked at...really wouldn't matter if Melania wore a head scarf or not because if she did that would be the issue...he can't win.

    I also think he should quit tweeting. The media wouldn't be able to make a major story out of a tweet, haha!

    Of course they'd say he's hiding something ...the man can't win and that's too bad. He's not perfect but he had some good ideas and was on the right path but if things don't change it's not going to be a good next 4 years for the country.

    Also, like me, he needs to think before he opens his mouth. :)

    I believe you to be correct in most aspects but, from my understanding, Trump tweets in order to sidestep the main stream media. He wants to stay as close to John Q. Public as he can but using the msm is impossible because of the apparent bias and sensationalism.
    Now, while I do definitely agree with the tactic, I believe he should run his thoughts through a good diplomatic censor before he amuses himself at the keyboard. " D**n the torpedoes, full speed ahead" doesn't seem to work well for this sitting president.

    I agree! It's always the one stupid thing he says that gets airtime and is remembered and replayed constantly.

    Just like that tweet from 2015 where he said Michele Obama wasn't wearing a headscarf in Saudi Arabia and that was disrespectful.

    Every morning I switch between two channels for news and weather. Feel like it gives me a broader view of things. NBC and CBS. However I trust none of them not even the weather people:D. Our world continues has been in total chaos for centuries I doubt it will ever change.:(

    An interesting article in the New York Post, written by a former CEO of NPR.
