#1 MORE than 350 "newsrooms" are worthless lobotomized parrots for the democrat party.

Listening to them is like listening to zombies preach to zombies. \

Knee jerk emotionalism and sudden anger that no drug can fix.

They are just fucking ignorant as hell -those that watch this. Mos Americans have tuned out, cut cord, and done their own research.

At least I Pray so. Americans are worth soooooo much more than this.

And Fuck off and die @CNN.

#5 The left-wing Mockingbird media gets its marching orders daily at 4:00 a.m. That is why the messages and narratives sound like an echo chamber.

#6 And they say they are honest journalists. This is a defining moment in our nation, if we listen. The press, 350 newsrooms have just came out of the closet and admitted they are all working together to shape the media messaging to Americans, to drive the political message, not report it. This is a attempt at a coup for control of our nation. This is clear we need to act.

#7 Mrs. Bobby informed me yesterday the U.S. Senate agreed - 100% - that the 'press is not the enemy of the people'.

If I squint just right, I can kinda sort see that point of view. Are deplorables 'people'?

What else would the Uniparty say? And where is Kek Wars, Part 2?

#9 Nearly 350 US newsrooms purveyors of fake news run editorials denouncing Trump’s attacks on ‘fake news’

Fixed that one for you.


Mos Americans have tuned out, cut cord, and done their own research.

I'm not so sure about that. I wish it were so but I'm afraid there are still an awful lot of zombies out there.

#10 Every one of those newspapers have officially abandoned the concept of a free & independent press.

I would offer the solution to Trump calling them 'fake news' - 'then stop with the fake news stories', but that will fall on deaf ears.

#14 The fact that 350 newspapers are preaching the same message proves Trump's point. We do not have a free press; we have a fake media. We have a bunch of shills spooning out left-wing Dem tripe.

#17  I just want the list of papers; so, I can block their websites from my browser.

According to this article at Real Clear Politics, nobody knows, rammer.

It was not clear how many newspapers participated. Marjorie Pritchard, the editor who launched the campaign, said earlier in the week that some 350 news organizations indicated they would, but she did not immediately return messages on Thursday. Even with the coordinated effort, there was some significant blowback from newspapers that wrote to say they would not participate.

The New York Times encouraged readers to subscribe to a local newspaper. “We’re all in this together,” the Times said.

That last sentiment made some journalists skittish. Some newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, the Rome (N.Y.) Daily Sentinel and the Richmond (Virginia) Times-Dispatch, contained editorials or columns explaining why they weren’t joining the Globe’s effort. Some worried that it played into the hands of Trump and his supporters who think the media is out to get him. The idea of a coordinated campaign simply left others cold, with one newspaper referencing a longtime rivalry.

“We prize our independence, both from government and from other media outlets,” the New York Daily News wrote. “Coordination, especially with Boston, isn’t in our nature.”

There was also some scolding of the press — from the press — for letting distaste for Trump show up where it shouldn’t in news stories.

“Just as his lack of restraint has often been the president’s self-inflicted wound, the bias of some of the press has hurt journalism, at the very moment when it is most needed to save itself,” said the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “It is time for a truce.”
