Like all of us deplorables, I’m sure President Trump knows very well what the role of the press is. The real question is, do you and your fellow “journalists”, Chris?

A "free press" means that journalists will not be arrested and jailed for anything that they report. It doesn't make them immune to criticism or having their objectivity questioned. I would like for Mr. Wallace to name one journalist that has been arrested. He is free to "report" anything that he wants and we are free to critisize him when it is determined that his reporting is not factual.

These "reporters" are certainly a touchy bunch. They criticize (not their job) but can't take it in return. To answer Wallace: "yes, do you understand the role of the press?"

The old role? Before 1970? The task of reporting events? Or the new role? The Cronkite role: "this war is lost!" It wasn't. But he said so, and it was truth. Shaping public opinion, oh yeah. Tell what we need to hear. Elect Hillary. Impeach Trump. They are smart. Just ask them. And we hide behind our guns and Bibles. Don't but from their advertisers. Don't watch or listen to their propaganda. Lucianne. That's the ticket. But not NBCCBSABCCNNNPRWAPONYT or the rest.

The problem is not does the President understand the roll of the press, but that the press does not fulfill its roll as most of us see it. It has become, for many, a partisan wing of the the Democratic party and actively pushes a political agenda as opposed to producing information that is accurate, unbiased, and informative of both sides of an issues. I have been around a while and always new the press to be full of lefty democrats but was usually able to trust the the actual news was honest and reasonably fair. For the last twenty or thirty years I have increasingly found that to no longer be the case. Today all you need to do is read an article to know the writer and the papers political bias'. This is why a large number of us no longer trust or use the MSM for news and information.

No American can be forced to listen broadcast news programs, forced to read ANY newspaper, forced to shut up in criticizing any news program, news broadcaster, any news paper or any "journalist". For most "journalists", they themselves think they're smarter than anyone else. Most of them, including Wallace are remarkably stupid. They don't even know it. Does Wallace understand that what he says or thinks may be totally irrelevant to the reality of others?

Wallace understands very well. The real question is does he have the character, integrity and honesty to do his professional duty. PDT and hundreds of millions of Americans have come to the conclusion that he and his likes do not. THAT is the real issue.

The MSM do not understand the purpose of the press, which is to present non-partisan, unbiased, factual NEWS. If editorializing/opinions are to be made, that must be made clear IN ADVANCE. The MSM have lied so much, and continue to do so, that they have lost the meaning of PRESS. it isn't just the major outlets. The two main newspapers in our area are far LEFT. When the recent IG report was issued, one of buried the news on Page 8. Unforgivable.

Chris Wallace is the Hunter Biden of the press-he only has a job because of his daddy. But unlike HB, he does seem to posses some talent here, although he uses it in a manner more becoming of The National Enquirer. He wants to have a 'gotcha' moment and make himself part of the story. I agree with poster #1, Wallace seems to have forgotten that the role of the press is to INFORM, not INDOCTRINATE, and above all, NOT TO LIE.

I have little use for Chris Wallace. I miss Tony Snow. Even Britt Hume was worlds better than Wallace, though I still watch Fox News Sunday each week. Their commentators are nowhere near as impressive as they had ten years ago. In the interest of being fair to Wallace, I'll say that he's clearly superior to Chuck Todd. Low bar, I know.

True journalism covers “who, what, when, where, why, and how.” True journalism does not interject “opinion”. True journalism will not commit sins of commission or omission to shape the news to conform to the political biases of the reporter and/or news organization.

The problem is Chris knows what an outright lie is and he knows what lying by omission is, but he doesn't care. He, like his daddy, would happily do and say ANYTHING to get noticed, to grab a rating point. At least a lawyer sells you his moral position. Talking heads like Chris haven't said or done a truly honest thing since they stared into the red light.

Chris, the press has not been acting in a proper role. It is no longer objective. It is so highly biased now that it is officially the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, as well as a strong supporter of the Socialist and Communist Parties. The majority of the mainstream media is hellbent on destroying our Constitutional Republic as our Founders envisioned. They want to fundamentally transform our country into something completely different. Yes, Cronkite was one of the early anti-American presstitutes.

The New York Times reported last week that Trump has been “discussing with his advisers the possibility of sitting out the general election debates in 2020” because “he does not trust the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit entity that sponsors the debates.”

Then his superiors caught him in a park that was popular with gay men, his nephew said. The sighting raised questions about Milk's sexual orientation in an era when the military banned gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. Milk was forced to resign.

The comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did a routine about baseball that is a cult favorite. In it, they kept batting back and forth the question, “Who’s on First?” “What” was on second and “I Don’t Know” was on third. “I Don’t Give a Darn” was shortstop. “Who’s On First” was a humorous and outlandish exchange between the two comics. As the routine went, so politics goes today. President Trump labels any Republican who questions his erratic and narcissistic style as a RINO (Republican In Name Only).
