But of course *WE*  will be able to rely on an internet that is controlled 90% by left wing people in Silicon Valley.

What outlet have you founded?


You are making this about me?   Let's just accept the premise that I am worthless,  and turn our attention back to the problem that great forces are at work to censor the internet.   


I don't see attacking me for not solving the problem all by my lonesome as a relevant point in this discussion.

Yeah? So?  Everyone's a hypocrite except for me.
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.

No one seems to want to address this.  It seem to me a worse problem than the current situation.


The media already serves as the mouthpiece of the left.  You somehow think they could do more of this than they already do?   


Looking at your theoretical argument,  If the right gains power and forces the media to spew propaganda for the right,  then that would be a change from what they are doing now.   When the left resumes power,  they would simply return to what they were doing before the right gained power.   


One of the things I have suggested is that we simply use the power of government to force media corporations to refrain from discriminating against conservatives in their hiring and promotion practices.


They accept this idea when it comes to blacks,  I'm just saying we can make them institute an affirmative action hiring policy for conservatives.   


Conservatives make up something like 45%  of the nation,  so the media corporation's employment should reflect numbers that represent a staff made up of similar percentages.   

Not having the "correct"  quota of conservatives on your staff can constitute a violation of anti-discrimination laws.    Big fines for discrimination can be imposed.   


What's wrong with this approach?  (Other than that we are using a Liberal principle to achieve this result.)

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...

This statement overlooks what I have become aware is a real problem;  Too many GOP are Democrats in disguise.   


We actually have only a small number of people in Congress that are actually GOP.

This is true. Yet the GOP is a winning brand, and there is a golden opportunity to pick up a number of seats in '18. At least a dozen are argueably on the table. 

That means getting good people in primaries who are conservative and either beating the incumbent or getting the nomination and winning the general.

If we walk in next year with 60+ seats, then it's going to require 10 or more defectors rather than 3 (McCain, Collins, Murkowski). That's a great deal harder to make excuses for when bills don't get enough votes.
And a country boy will survive.

So you would force the media to cover stories it is supposedly ignoring? And what would happen when a Democrat President came to power? Would I be forced to hear about gender equality and climate change all day long on conservative platforms?

Excellent point and the answer to your two questions is yes.

People don't seem to grasp the law of unintended consequences.

Why should the only recourse be, for a willfully damaging news story based upon lies and innuendos from anonymous sources, to force them to rebut it on their own networks?

How does one reach the audience of the affected with sinister lies, meant to keep their viewers from knowing the TRUTH?

Do you force them to cover previously ignored stories?  NO!

You charge them with willful intent to deceive the People of the USA and then you prove it in a public trial.

President Trump is merely snapping his fingers to bring everyone's attention to the matter.

Here is a question for Trump’s critics defending NBC’s freedom to print lies.

NBC has a news blackout on the Harvey Weinstein story. Any guesses why?

NBC Universal (parent company of NBC) does millions in business with the Weinstein company. No big deal, you say? They’re just exercising their power to ignore, you say?

In whose interest is that?

Still trust NBC to uphold the public’s interest?

AP spiked stories about Russian genocide in the 1930's in Siberia and the NYT downplayed the NAZI Holocaust for all of WWII.

This is nothing new.  Just like media having a Liberal bent is as predictable as the sun coming up.

If this was Obama threatening Fox your attitude would be completely different...in fact it probably was every time he badmouthed FNC.

You're all about revenge. 

The First Amendment protects NBC even when they are acting the way the are.  It doesn't just protect speech you agree with...but that with which you disagree with as well.

Whether I like or trust a news source or not, I still don’t want big government revoking or otherwise “challenging” licenses to news sources that they deem are unfair, lying, or simply not to their liking. Most conservatives would have screamed bloody murder had Obama threatened this on Fox News but many Trump supporters are all-in when Donald effectively threatens censorship. It seems to me that you either have conservative/Constitutional principles or you don’t.

That's the bottom line.

Revenge, getting even, censorship, and "fairness" are not conservative principles.

Reminds me of the young woman who knows her boyfriend is a dirty rotten scoundrel. He cheats on her, treats her like dirt, humiliates her in front of her friends. But, she just can’t let go and stays with him through all the abuse.

The constitution is a suicide pact.
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Fascinating how you twist what others have said into a "you-hate-Trump-so-you-love-NBC-and-defend-their-lies" tommyrot.

I guess those ridiculous false ad hominems are all you've got when you have to defend a direct violation of the First Amendment.  :shrug:

While what you are advocating is that the young woman go in direct violation of the law to stop her boyfriend.

SOME of us actually believe in the law, and want it upheld.

Open up the market and allow anyone to play who wants to.

That will never happen. A few years back 1999 ish, Congress told the FCC to
allow low power broadcasters (under 100 watts) to operate without a license.
I immediately bought all the equipment I would need to operate a 40 watt
station. I also bought a beer joint to put it in. I was going to be rich radio
station/beer joint. Well guess what, the BIG broadcasters flipped out. No way
they could complete against 10,000 jpsbs broadcast original content.  They
lobbied Congress and the ban on anything over a 1/4 watt was restored. I got
stuck with 5,000 in useless equipment and a run down beer joint. Thanks a lot
Congress.

You are not a moron.  You just say moron things like this. 

Trump is exactly right to do this.  I have been trying to get people to threaten these propaganda bastards for years,  and Trump is finally the man with enough guts to do it! 


The media corporations are our enemy.  They are the propaganda corps for the left in this nation,  and they have been manipulating elections with their lies,  their omissions,  and their spin,  and it's way past time we did a frontal assault on their legitimacy and their continued lawful operation in this country. 

Yes,  pulling their licenses is exactly the appropriate thing to threaten these bastards with.   I would be threatening Federal prosecutions if it were up to me.   I'd have the FEC all over them, I'd have the EEOC all over them,   I would be having the Justice Department bringing anti-trust lawsuits against them,   I would be using whatever power I could bring to bear in an effort to cut their financial throats. 


These are our enemies,  and they have been our enemies since at least the Nixon/Kennedy election,  and probably a lot longer than that.   

We need to stick a knife in them anywhere we can.

I would like to quote your post a hundred times on this thread because it is absolutely true.

The media has way too much power to lie, to slant, to ignore and to shape our perception of reality.

They have to be curtailed from lying.  I would make the ability to sue the media easier to do.  Right now, it's almost impossible because one has to prove intent to harm and that is a nebulous thing to try and prove.

But it's totally obvious that there is both intent to harm and harm done.

As long as people continue to be 'pragmatic' and vote party, we will continue to get politicians. The ENTIRE reason the congress is paralyzed right now is because of pragmatism being the word, rather than Conservatism. Vote for men who will undoubtedly stand for Conservative principles, and you will begin to tip the balance the other way.

We NEED tried and true, true-blue, rock-ribbed, Conservative statesmen, and literally nothing else will do.

Until the American people understand that, nothing will change.

Yes!!  Revenge.  I want revenge against a slanted media which has lied to us for years, covered up for Hillary and Obama and trashed Trump with every breath.

What do we know about Obama after 9 years in the public eye?  Zip, zero, nada.  His secrets (and I know they are many) are still safe in the closet behind the coats and boots.  Why?  Because this media loves and protects him.  Yes, I want to hurt them.

And what about that beloved couple, The Clinton's.  Murderers, rapists, cheaters, liars or just lovable good old boys and girls.  Depends on the media, of course.

Yes, I would LOVE some revenge.  Make them prove the truth of what they print.  Make them give equal time to people who want to refute their stories.  Grind them into dust and salt the ground.

During the election, we were told to ignore the odors of fascism that seemed to be wafting from some corners of the Trump campaign.

Now, we're told to breathe deeply and inhale the full-fledged stench of government-controlled media.

That cannot - CANNOT - be done with regulation. All you are doing is setting up the Office of Propaganda. If you find it so repugnant, then encourage libel and slander suits. That is what is supposed to keep them flying right and telling the truth.

Well, that's what I said, isn't it?

I suggested making the standard for suing low enough so that it is possible to do so.

And, you don't find it repugnant that the media has lied to us for years?  I do.  If you're from TOS, remember the joy in the land when Dan Rather was outed for blatantly lying about George W. Bush.  One of TOS's finest moments.

As I said in an earlier post, the media DOES have too much power.  What do we know about Obama?  Nothing.

What do we know about Sarah Palin?  Everything, including where she does her laundry.

If only the left put as much value on the right to bear arms as they do on free speech.

How many laws have been made abridging the right to bear arms in some ways?  Yeah, right.

And how many laws have been passed abridging some of the total rights of the media to lie, scam, slant and omit?
