Calls Increase for MSM to Stop Airing
Trump Live: ‘You Will Get People Killed’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 3/21/2020 4:09:30 AM

Calls are increasing for cable networks to stop airing President Donald Trump’s press conferences live as critics believe Trump is turning White House news briefings into virtual campaign rallies that can “get people killed” with lies about the Coronavirus crisis. The pressure only increased after Trump’s Friday briefing.The Atlantic’s James Fallows believes the attention-starved Trump is turning the press conferences into “virtual campaign” rallies and Trump would actually lose interest in showing up if the media did not cover the briefings live.“Also, as a practical matter, if the briefings were no longer covered live, Trump would lose interest in attending himself,” Fallows argues.

They all say he’s lying, but the article only gave one example about some treatment coming soon. In my mind, it’s a lie to call someone a liar without giving examples and proof that what ever is said is actually false.

The media can dish it out but they can't take criticism. Stop allowing the press to ask questions, it's a circus. They never ask any questions that haven't already been answered. It's all about destroying Trump. It's not Trump that worries me, it's the media. It's all about them. We don't have a press, we have the democrat propaganda machine. I have not read one positive statement about the press except the ones they write. The only ones incoherent is the press, not Trump.

In democrat land, every utterance by Trump is a lie. If hecsaid the sky was blue, they would quibble over the shade of blue. Because he didnt specify the exact shade, he's a liar.

Our MSM is the Enemy of The People, not Trump. In a time of crisis, I expect our President to lead, and Trump does just that. The evil bastards who run the media are shills for the Left, they always have been, and were dead silent for all the years that Washington DC sold out Americans to foreign interests. My solution to this would be far too draconian for a constitutional republic, but then again, can't it be argued they we are under constant attack from the MSM, that they do not have our best interests at heart, that they hide behind the protection of our laws while simultaneously railing against the very same laws? They lie, and keep lying, and there are no repercussions-except that their ratings will continue to plummet. Hpoefully they will reach ZERO sometime in the next few days.

Of course “they” want these press conferences to cease because the President clearly is shown to be a wise, compassionate and effective leader while the media is exposed as a pack of jackals. He and his team are doing a wonderful job of keeping us all informed while the media play games and try and make the President look bad with their inane questions. What they want is to keep the President away from the public because he is effective and makes their guy look as ridiculous as he is. I cannot believe the sound of the media as they practically scream their questions each vying to be called on so they can have their moment in the sum to attempt to make the President look bad. It is one big gotcha session and could be managed much better. Why they are permitted to scream like that is beyond me. There should be rules that are followed and if they are not, the perpetrators should be escorted out and not allowed to return. I look forward to the press conferences because they keep me informed. I certainly do not trust the media to be the source of my information.

The reality that the briefings are acting like campaign rallies is accurate. A president doing presidential things in the midst of a real crisis usually demands the attention of the public. The pathetic selfishness and smallness of the media to whine about it shows that the only thing that matters to them is that Trump be destroyed and they get their power back. If it takes hundreds of thousands of Americans dying to accomplish it, well, that's just the price we will have to pay to reestablish them in power. "if the briefings were no longer covered live, Trump would lose interest in attending himself" shows the base level of their thinking, that for Trump it's all about a political stunt instead of what it really is: drawing attention to expert thinking and plans and providing reassurance for a worried nation. Trump's presence commands the focus of the public that is required to deal with this situation. The Left whining about this are beneath contempt.

The same people want the Trump rallies to cease, they don't hate Trump they fear him! The only part of the press conferences I don't like is the end when they open it up to the screaming press. The press have never had anyone stand up to them & they don't how to handle Trump.

The leftist media have redefined the word "lie", which now means anything said that differs from their opinion. So far COVID19 has infected fewer people and killed far fewer than h1n1, and what did the previous administration do in response to that pandemic? Nothing that I can recall. No flights cancelled, no quarantine, no market crash caused by the panic stampede driven by the media.

Implicit in the criticism is the admission that press conferences are, in general, vacuous events that serve the media's purposes. Trump has hijacked these briefings by throwing light on their cockroach culture, and they're scurrying to adapt. My money is on the exterminator.

I've watched every second of every CTF presser because I want to hear from the experts what is going on. Not the MSM's opinion or agendas. Trump can be goaded, and he will always swing back. Ididn't like George Steinbrenner either, nor could I listen to him, but how's the Yankees do. Many hate the Yankees as well. The disputed FDA issue was cherrypicked. The drug has been approved....sorry, that's the fact. Has it been approved for Novel Corona virus 19? Fauci said the lengthy clinical tests have not been done since this virus that somehow originated in China was set loose on the World late last year. He did say it appeared to work where used. Is it being used at Sloan Kettering in NYC to treat the virus? YES!! Trump said give it a shot. That is my take. Would you rather people sufffer and die because the study wasn't done? My solution to the pressers is this. Since the MSM can't act in a way to not create confusion and panic, don't take live questions from them. Make them submit them in writing, and publish the answers. AND NOT ON THEIR WEBSITE! No clicks for you until you report news not troll for clickbait answers or to promote your agenda. Secondly, let Pence handle the pressers. Trump can be the guy who tells the experts and companies 'I don't care what you say you can or can't do....get it done! If you don't think that's what is going on, you're either not watching or just want Trump to fail and don't care about who else suffers. I've had about enough

"attention-starved Trump" ? The enemedia are offended that PDJT has the absolute temerity to counter when attacked by them or Leftist pols. They wonder why he can't be more like the Bushes were, and play punching-bag for them? They keep wanting to get the last word about blaming him, and he just won't let them have it. (probably the personality trait that has him still standing after the Left has thrown haymaker after haymaker after haymaker at him) This cites Judd Legum (whoever that is) saying, "Record them and tell people what is true and what is false." I don't trust reporters to act as arbiters of the truth for me. Certainly not the politicized reporting of today, which can only claim to be 'based on a true story', not the truth. And Jamison Foser (whoever that is) saying that continuing to air the President's pressers live will get people killed is the kind of hyperbole that comes from somebody who's starved for attention.

In 2014, Rush Limbaugh exposed a small group of activists consisting of approximately nine people, one being a tenured female college professor, behind the effort to sign a petition for calling his show’s sponsors to end their relationship with his program. This small group, using illicit software, custom automated tweeting software, sent thousands of messages in an effort to bully and harass advertisers into cancellation. Since that exposure, it would be prudent to suggest that vast numbers of “complaints” are not true in number; quite possibly, simply the manipulation of activists doing what activists do—stirring trouble and being obnoxious.

The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not, according to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times. The Trump administration is scrambling to replenish a stockpile of protective medical gear for healthcare workers and patients, as the coronavirus sweeps across the nation. N95 respirator masks are one of the most needed medical supplies amid the outbreak. The George W. Bush administration published the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza plan in 2005,

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,

Vice President Biden is due Monday to begin giving briefings on the coronavirus crisis so as to appear like a shadow president. There’s just one problem. Sleepy Joe, as President Trump likes to call him, has been upstaged by none other than Andrew Cuomo. It seems the doughty Democratic governor of New York has emerged as a star, while Mr. Biden is still getting a studio set up in his home. Maybe Mr. Cuomo is the one whom the Democrats should run against Mr. Trump. He has been out there every day of late with detailed updates, wise asides, references to his time in Washington, and commentary on the Constitution.
