TRUMP IS TARGET ONE FOR THE 90% MEDIA
The media monopolies, 5 corporations which own 90% of the media, have been firing relentlessly all weekend at President Trump. Actually, some tweet every week 90% of the time about President Trump.
This negative press is not just this weekend, it’s 24/7 since January. Below are tweets between 10pm-10:45 August 14, 2017. Monday

WHAT IS TRUTH?
That was about all I had stomach for, and if you go to the tweet links, you can read a couple of pages of negative comments about our President. The issue Charlottesville, before Korea, before Obamacare. The issues change, but are just an opportunity to strike with one liberal voice against the President.
If you are liberal, voted for or favored Hillary Clinton you don’t see the issue. Looks like truth to you. What’s wrong with that? As Pilate said to Jesus, immediately prior to turning him over to be crucified; “What is truth?” While the crowd was squabbling and accusing, Pilate knew truth often had many sides, and more often undecidable at the moment.
What is not being said by the Press, concerning our President, since January is the problem. There are many ways of looking at issues, especially complex political, social, or foreign affairs. You are being denied the opportunity to look more broadly at issues, and the different viewpoints, dissent, and alternate opinions.
As said in the previous post; Fox News Host regularly speak positively of the President, but in doing so they report all the negativity the other 90% media is saying, and likely have an advocate for them in any panel. You could say, ‘well that’s better than nothing.’ It’s not. Conservatives, and moderates or liberals who want to hear other viewpoints only have Fox News to go to. Not CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, NY Times, Politico, Huffington Post, Washington Post and practically every national media. Because 90% are owned by 5 corporations, with majority holding of about 15 billionaires.
What if there was no Fox News, who does subtly criticize the President, and omits some large issues, such as Freedom of the Press. No Fox News, all the 50% “deplorables” who voted for the President would say, “all the media is against my candidate, something is wrong, this is rigged.”
Maybe Fox is part of this obvious Liberal bias who all know “What is Truth”, and report in lock step with many times the same phrases. Fox owner Murdoch has a huge media empire. Including liberal media such as the NY Times and The Post.
To put this simply, whether liberal, moderate or conservative your opportunity to hear dissenting viewpoints has been taken away from you. How did all the major media come to one liberal viewpoint? Next year they may all support something liberals strongly disagree with. If liberal the news may be nailing the Nazi in the Whitehouse. In a few years they could be praising a Nazi in the Whitehouse. All the media. Freedom of the Press has been secretly stolen from all Americans, Liberals and Conservatives.
This is 1984 and someone else reports New Speak and disregards alternate opinion. Five corporations have an unconstitutional power to just ignore any dissenting opinion. They have Antitrust exemption since 1996. Murdoch has made one unsuccessful attempt to buy CNN. He’ll have Fox and CNN. People like Murdoch don’t give up often. I repeat, there is no such thing as Freedom of the Press when all dissenting media has been acquired.
The 1996 Telecommunications act must be repealed! Antitrust enforcement must begin immediately to be applied to media giants. As Bell Telephone become many baby bells due to antitrust enforcement so should the media. So we can have vigorous opposing dialog on issues every night on the cable news and in the daily papers. Even Fox news does mention this. I have never heard them. They talk about media bias, and fake news, yet do not report the real cause or what is needed to restore freedom of the Press. Congress won’t take this own, the media is going to be reporting on them next election. Contributions pour in from Billionaire media moguls you bet. That’s how the bill was passed initially. I’ve heard President Trump speak about Media Fake News and media bias, but not about the monopolized media antitrust exemptions.
That only leaves the Supreme Court who has a capability. Well you liberals could wake up from the daisy patch and see that your rights have been sold out too. Everyone in America, regardless of political beliefs have lost their Freedom of the Press.
Supreme Court or the court of public opinion. I’m just ONE FREE PRESS.
