    All these news sources like CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and ABC are going out of their way to prove Trump right when he said they are all fake news. They rush to report that that they had an e-mail about Trump receiving information from wikileaks before it was posted. After putting all over the news without knowing who sent the e-mail or checking the date on the e-mail. Later they came out and said they were perhaps they were wrong. They still are saying that the Russians hacked the DNC computers with no proof what so ever. These outright lies coming from these sources.They are going to kill themselves telling lies about Trump

    I do agree that the media has jumped the gun on reporting anything latley.
    The media is mostly BS and so is Trump tha Chump. His intentions are good for the most part...but his reasoning and handling are to be desired.

    I agree @Gloria Mitchell ...I did vote for him but sometimes he makes me cringe.

    I really wish he'd act more Presidential, he would have gotten a lot more done that way I feel.

    Now all the focus is always on his tweets and he's alienated too many people....

    Another one of these news announcements that are set up to cause or encourage panic, and give a false picture. Note the news announcer in the special outfit and mask; but right beside him, the camera man is dressed normally.

    Interesting that the first pictures out of China showing this disease people just falling over dead. Getting a scare technique for this virus.

    While most news sources are broadcasting a message from the President of the United States of America; fake news CNN thinks it is more important to show what Jim Acosta thinks about things.......

    That is probably because Acosta has somewhat of a clue as to what is going on. I know that you think trump is the gold standard and can do no wrong,BUT, the guy is an idiot. Why have scientists, doctors ,infectious disease experts on staff, and contradict their advice?
    Why claim to have equal or greater knowledge than the professionals. Why make statements without solid foundation, only to have to walk them back later. Why the statement that the governors better treat him nicely?

    Just a comment on the picture,"we are considering building two additional hospital ships" What? Building a ship making it seaworthy is a 5 or 6 year proposition, the two ships we have are not even being utilized.The ship in NY is NOT being used for Corona victims,but for ordinary trauma. the 5000 bed ship has approximately 20 patients. Next panel, Focused on efficiency. Why? That is what FEMA is for. If the director of FEMA received his appointment thru merit ,rather that political positioning, the only thing the president should directly have to do is get his daily briefing, with the random phone call for particulars.

    Now I have just slaughtered several thousand electrons in vain,knowing your reaction will be to dismiss all I have written as just another liberals anti trump rant.

    Well, there are folks "for" how Trump is and those that are totally "against" how he is. I can totally understand his feelings about "getting America back to work", BUT, to me, when the timing is right and not any earlier. If this "Stay At Home" Order has to be extended, that's just the way it will be and wife and I will cooperate with it.

    IOW, if there are just too many people out there that refuse to cooperate with some, or all, of the Guidelines put out, then...……..

    Congratulations!!
    Since you obviously know how to do it better you must be running for the office of the Presidency.
    I mean, you believe the President to be an idiot so by extension you must be much, much smarter and able to take over. I admit that I can’t but you, on the other hand, are obviously more qualified so that means that the offers to help finance your campaign must be overwhelming!!
    Why, Acosta himself must be banging on your door begging you to run. Go for it man Go for it!

    Here is how I look at this issue, and why I think that CNN is doing the wrong thing, @Peter Renfro.
    Just for the sake of discussion, lets assume that you are right, and some television news reporter knows more about the state of the nation than the president and his expert team of advisors know, for some unknown reason.

    Even if that is true, it has always been traditionally done that whenever the President of the United States is making an announcement of vital importance to this country, ALL of the news channels, all of the media , carries the broadcast live when the president addresses this country.
    Every president we have had , since there were news channels to broadcast the announcements, has had full news coverage of any announcement.

    If CNN wants to allow their hired reporters to give their viewpoint about something, then there is nothing wrong with doing that; but NOT at the same time as the President is speaking to the nation about something.
    Most of the time, the news stations have people hired to be on air and give their opinions, and it is not the reporter’s job to do anything except report the news that they are sent to cover.

    Simmer down Bob! Never did I say that I or Acosta was qualified. I did say that in my opinion trump is not either. Your hatred for anything non trump is not at all becoming. I do know that if I did run and was elected that I would surround myself with experts listen to their counsel and heed their advice. I would know that I was not a "stable genius", I would know that I did not"know more than the generals", I would know that reporters pinning me down because I made an error were not just "asking nasty questions", I would know that I was elected president of a nation and no state would be behind another because it's governor was "not appreciative" .

    Just what has this yahoo actually accomplished,(not promised accomplished) that makes you elevate him to status of savior?

    Hate? I honestly do not hate anyone but that said, I do admit there are some folks I highly dislike.
    Ya see, it’s like this. I have the uncanny ability to listen to ALL the news resources and not just one or two. By doing so, I can cross reference the items I wish to and come up with my own opinion and not those of some very biased commentators whether they be left or right. Yup, some say that it takes a real super human to do it but that said, I also realize that a few million other people are the same as I so it’s really no big feat at all is it?
    Ya know what I heard? I heard that there are really some folks who only listen to ONE or TWO news resources? Ain’t that special or what?
    Now, as far as Acosta is concerned, to me he’s the real idiot and yes, I can do a much better job of reporting the news than he can but sadly, it is well recognized that CNN only likes to hire folks who will march to their particular drum. Yes I know I know it’s hard to believe and it does sound rather preferential and even prejudiced but that’s the way they do things.

    Now, as far as the word “savior” goes, Trump is no way close to being the Christ so you might wish to choose your wording a little more carefully. Gotta be PC ya know. Yeah, it’s a left wing province but if you guys can demand it of me, I can demand it of ya’ll.

    Now lastly and sadly because I do have some actual work to do even though we are having such a splendid conversation, do please check out Trump’s platform promises and the planks he ran on, set aside the backlash of the virus, and tell me what items he hasn’t accomplished or at least attempted to complete.
    Don’t hesitate to call if ya need help. I may not answer as quickly as some may but I will answer at some point in time. May health and blessings abound!

    @Bobby Cole

    This I do not like. Such wording suggests physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual superiority over others. Not good.
