Media lets loose its fury after Trump attacks

by JONATHAN EASLEY
August 24, 2017

Members of the media blasted back at President Trump on Wednesday after he railed against the press at a rally and called journalists “dishonest people” who “don’t like our country.”

Acrimony between the Trump White House and the media has been escalating for months, but the latest round of attacks and counterattacks was notable for its bare-knuckle ferocity.

At a rally in Phoenix on Tuesday night, Trump delivered a 30-minute diatribe in which he lambasted the “damned dishonest” press. The president accused the media of exacerbating racial divisions, attacking ordinary Americans, giving a platform to hate groups and of “trying to take away our history and our heritage.”

“If you want to discover the source of the division in our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media,” he said.

    Trump hits it out of the park with this one! The media is everything he called them! If they want their stock to go up they need to grow up and dump the liberal mantra they all sucked into.

  • Uncle Pat says:

    And once again Trump is correct !

  • JIBIJOA says:

  • Bob says:

    After all the nasty, rotten lies Drumpf has told about the Media, I would love to see them unload on him with all the forces at their disposal. No one puts out more lies and Fake News than the Twitter with Tiny Fingers.

    1. Retired says:

      That is how he plays the media for suckers and people that believe what the media writes . Why would you waste your time on Twitter following Trump instead of what is really going on ??? Like the 129 appointments that have not been brought to the floor ???? Why is McConnell and McCain think their poop don’t stink Them two are as big a problem as the whole Democrat party !!!

      1. Bob says:

        Retarded – No doctor dumb-dumb! The Crooked Orange Blossom has been playing YOU and the rest of the Uneducated for suckers. He’s counting on your stupidity and you’re coming throughlike a chump, skippy!!

        1. Retired says:

          You forget it was Trump or putting the lying B!th and the pervert back into the WH to finish what Billy Boy and Obama started . Turn the USA into a swamp pool of illegals dependent on the Government .

          1. Bob says:

            Retarded – Lies and diversions, typical right-wing Republicon. You’re right about one thing, loser, the Pervert IS IN THE OVAL OFFICE. But NOT FOR LONG, skippy!!!

          2. Retired says:

            What has he done to be called a pervert since taking the oath ??? Billy boy was in the Oval Office getting a BJ and if not more . You don’t seem to remember Bills and Hillary’s past, got amnesia about that EH . Take your hate someplace else !!!

  • Carol Juliano Popp says:

    Trump is 100% right. The press is shockingly dishonest and they are traitors to our country and its security.

  • Pat Cross says:

    the media needs it’s head flushed with acid

  • Betty says:

I have watch Trump speaches and news cast then watched reports on news, what was reported didnot say or had been cut to say what WAS NOT SAID BY TRUMP. alays depended on news to keep me informed. n longer

  • Pete Bundy says:

    All you have to do is look at the schools that graduate these so called journalist. Nothing but liberal nest.

  • dmttbt says:

    “Media lets loose it’s fury” What the hell does that mean????

  • LLuke47 says:

    Sadam hussien would have been proud to have anyone of the liberal media as his propaganda ministers

  • exoticdoc2 says:

    Trump was perfectly accurate in his assessment. The majority of “journalists” in this country are liberal lunatics who hate America and want to turn it into a socialist nightmare.

  • itsfun says:

    The fake news folks can’t deal with the truth. The President is right. The media doesn’t report the news, they try to make it. The press is rapidly losing all credibility by publishing lies and making up news.

    1. dmttbt says:

      One problem is that older people believe the news above all else and they are hard to break from that bad habit.

      1. Mitch Darby says:

        The millennials would probably think 74 is OLD, but I have given up watching the news as not only a waste of time but a great way to get into a bad, ugly mood. Why can’t the truth be told? Many older women in our Senior residence believe the swill they are fed.

        1. Retired says:

          You mean the ones with dementia don’t you ?????

      2. Retired says:

        Boy are you out in left field , most lived through the hard time and have seen how this countries leadership has ruined the USA over the decades . It’s the young snots that are falling for the fake media !!!

        1. dmttbt says:

          That is not what I experience when I go to a building that houses older people who are on subsidized rent. They believe the broadcast news. Many don’t even own a television and they gather and watch the one in the meeting room. They have little or no choice which channel they watched and most of the time that wouldn’t matter either because all the network news stations tell what they want the news to be and to hell with the truth.

          1. Retired says:

            I don’t know about not having a TV or Cell phone . Those that are subsidized are living off of the Government so why would they not support their free bees ????/.

          2. dmttbt says:

            My point exactly. There are more people on government assistance that ever before. If you want an example of free bees, when the presidential democrat primary was in the heat of battle, Bernie Sanders was getting most of his support from young people eighteen years old and in that range. He was saying he would rather we would pay all their college bills. That is why they were for him. Like I say we have a 20 trillion dollar deficit and the economy is in the toilet and he is promising more government spending. What a load of crap. You have to consider though he wanted to run on the democrat socialist ticket but decided to run on the regular democrat spot. He was running against Hilary who for the life of me I can’t figure out why she is not in prison instead of running for president.
            When people say the surprising win by Trump I can’t help but think that if there is anything surprising it is that the two running against him are allowed to walk the streets.

          3. Retired says:

            Well Hillary played the same tune of free university . You have to remember Hillary is the spouse of a member of the presidents secret club ,so nothing will happen to her no matter what she does or says . That is also why nothing will happen to Obama ,unless someone took the matter in their own hands . In my part of the world apartment complexes are built with Government tax support and only a small portion need to be for low income and they live independent .They are limited to the assets they can own . Many put their assets into a trust and live off of the government .

    2. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      Itsfun-Who watches CNN, MSBC, and all the other “FAKE NEWS” outlets that spew nothing but hate and diviseness. Sooner or later their advertisers will quit using them and they will go broke blaming everybody except themselves.

  • mudguy1 says:

    It is sad when the Lame-stream Media can’t tell the difference between opinions and news.
    This would be what John Wayne would tell the media.

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    The president couldn’t be farther off base. He mistakes, is it deliberate?, the reporting of media for creating policies that are already in existence or enacted into law and Constitution. He simply doesn’t know or substitutes his own feelings for reality. It’s typical Trump that has spread through his base like a contagion. For too many citizens, Trump alternate reality has become truth which harms the U.S. body politic from officials to fellow Republicans. The question remains after special elections since January, can Democrats capitalize on the nation’s drift toward the precipice with great candidates and sound effective/efficient policies to run on. That’s the big ‘if’ here, not the media, not truth, not the alt-right. Where is the real leadership?

    1. snl says:

      The President, is RIGHT!

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        If you are afraid of your shadow, if you hate minorities, if you love false news, if you can’t read newspapers, if you don’t know the law or Constitution, if you feel rather than think your way through life, if you have his alienation from his own party, if you love Russian mafia types, if you love promises unfulfilled, then you think the president is ‘right’.

        1. gvette says:

          LOL…you’re the one looking for Russians under your bed, Bill. A doctorate in education. That’s as much of a joke, as you are.

        2. dmttbt says:

          No I would rather love American mafia types because that is what runs this country. In the part where you refereed to my saying we have been invaded you commented EVASION meaning I am evading the truth. Buddy if you want to find truth and are looking at politicians you are going to be forever. The part where you say Trump has turned his back on his own party really tickles me because I said he is not a republican and for that matter no one else is either. The dems and republicans say what they are and what they stand for but they are stealing America blind while they are trying to convince people they are telling the truth. Forget that democrat and republican bull s hit. It is crime family and that is it.

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            You don’t respond to or recognize reality, do you? The mafia I refer to is Russian mafia related to the crooks who stole Russia from Russians, those dominated now by Putin, who Trump loves. You are nuts to like anybody who would rob this nation–mafia, Trump, Russians, the swamp critters just installed by Trump to run the country who each have ties to criminal acts.
            Politics is different, the art of the possible. Backing Trump who expresses dictator traits at every tweet and rally, who promotes Executive Orders and anti-people moves in congress makes you another tyrant.
            Parties have ruled this nation since its start; it’s built into our government system. No 3rd part can succeed as you imagine, only throw monkey wrenches into the works of the main parties, creating trouble for the nation. We have already alienated our partners and co-democratic nations in the West via Trump errors.
            We are leaning toward authoritarian rule with his moves against media, judges, courts and minorities in just 6 months of Trump. If you want to lose the nation so many of his supporters love with a military oath of allegiance, keep backing this criminal and his henchmen. Your love of mafia is wacky talk so you can’t be taken seriously about anything. The Republicans you should know are shoveling money and power as fast as they can toward the rich of this nation, and themselves are moving toward dictatorship, Trump loves so much in ‘strongman’ Putin. You are right that he leads a crime family–oppose him at all costs.

          2. Pete says:

            Results of eight years of progressive/socialist Barack Obama.
            1. The president is a registered republican
            2. The Senate and House of Representatives controlled by the GOP.
            3. in excess of one thousand state legislative seats moved from the progressive/socialist democrats to the GOP.
            4. 2/3 of the governors are republicans.
            5. 69 of the states 99 legislatures are on the hands of the GOP
            The nation has made a sharp right turn and the socialistic utopian world you appear to prefer has been tried for decades and soundly rejected.
            I seriously doubt that it will soon gain any favor in the minds of those Americans who vote.

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            Pete, look at the real world results of your list.
            1. Trump was formerly, and acts now, more like a Democrat, is warring with congressional Republicans.
            2. Control is such an ephemeral word–what results has congress gotten: precious little considering control of all 3 branches of government.
            3. Good R propaganda and Trump/R governors’ promises led to a ‘revolt’, led by Freedom Caucus, formerly the Tea Party, so people voted for change that has proven wrong headed in NE, ME, NC, and many other ‘red’ states in education, business tax breaks and quality of life.
            4. Those Republican governors are fighting Trump and congress to keep Obamacare Medicaid money and Obamacare because it’s a good (former) Republican program derived from R Romneycare in MA.
            5. Many of those R legislatures have enacted laws that are unconstitutional or problems for taxpayers like reduced governor powers in NC, poor education in NE, and voter suppression laws thrown out.
            The nation has expressed something, but rebellion isn’t getting better wages, benefits, taxes, schools, etc. Remember the old saw: to live like a Republican, voter Democratic.

          4. Pete says:

            The voters in the majority of states have selected republicans to govern their state. You may come up with your own reasons why that occurred but that changes absolutely nothing.The majority of states will function more in tune with a representative republic as opposed to a democracy. That general trend will bleed over into the federal simply because the bulk of the House & Senate reflects their states political reality. That reality is simply this, Progressive/socialism faces a rather long dry spell.

    There’s a petition to remove the CNN Airport Network at all USA airports.

    That would put a big dent in their propaganda efforts.

  • Bob says:

    The press is shameless. For the past 8 years they had done everything but fall to their knees and kiss the ring of a President that played them like a fiddle. We no have a President who desires to speak to the American People with out the prism of hate, commonly called the White House Press Corps. They can not believe he shows his disdain for their lack of professionalism that they show to their “profession” by re-stating every lie, half truth and innuendo leveled at the Administration as fact. IN the 7 months since he was inaugurated, how many retractions and “corrections” have had to be made for stories easily proved out right lies? If the President helped a little old lady across the street, they would report it as he hated the elderly. They can not handle the truth that there is now a President who will not sit for their tactics and lies. The are upset that the people, their viewers, are now seeing actually seeing the absolute bias commented on for more than a decade and it effecting their bottom line, ratings and circulation.

  • CrustyOldGeezer says:

    Note to cnn.

    It’s NOT “divisive” if one tells the TRUTH.

    Hell, you might even try it sometime.

    It generally has a more favorable following!

    FOXNEWS has been so far above you in the ratings for decades for ONLY ONE SIMPLE REASON.

    I’ll let you guess why..

    If I want to be lied to, I can go to the local bar and play “First Liar Doesn’t Stand a chance”.

    The
    rules are simple. The first liar tells a story about the first time he
    got laid, The next liar tops that one, until the stories get so
    outlandish it reminds them of CNN and they get MAD because they are
    DAMNED SICK AND TIRED tired of being lied to!

  • regulus30 says:

    See what happens when a group has no accountability; some people are too stupid TO GIVE THEM POWER; free speech has it’s down side, re: CNN,NBC,CBS,WaPo,HuffPo,NPR,PBS [both funded with your tax dollars]. We the People know the truth and these anti America leftists are preaching to THEIR CHOIR. Kick liberals’ asseces in 2018/2020, kill them once and for all.

  • McFerguson says:

    Let’s see…journalists in large numbers, say 85 percent, consider themselves to be democrats and vote accordingly, that is, they’re on the left side of the political continuum. Most call themselves “Progressive” and look at our Founding documents as outmoded, no longer relevant because, in part, they were conceived by a bunch of wealthy white guys, many who were slave owners whose words, beliefs and principles no longer apply to a more forward looking nation where diversity, not meritocracy, is King. And in pushing diversity for diversities sake, Constitutional principles are forsaken and agenda becomes the driving force of the democrat party and all those media mavens who support it. Investigative reporters anymore are a rare breed. Pushing the left’s mantra and playing the identity politics game is now the prevailing force among the lame stream media. And truth, justice and traditional values be damned…what’s left is “fake news”

    It is too bad the media is head over heels set on destroying the country we all love. I think this would be a good reason to turn the media “OFF”. If you do not love this country you are living in I think instead of changing it, we good Americans would help you leave for places you deem better. I have no problem supporting people who love our country and want to make it better but I am very much against supporting people that only want to tear it down. You are an American if you love and serve the people of American and I believe this to be a very good standard to becoming an American also. We ask God to bless this country but I think we should be asking for mercy and grace to help us!!!

  • tryscavage says:

    Well…let’s see…hmmmm…yep they DO lie about everything. Therefore, the question is if a Medical doctor is practicing medicine without a license that pseudo-doctor is punished. If a journalist is suppose to be ‘writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation’ but are interpreting news through the narrow vision of their egotism and their hidden racism they should be punished as well.
