It is a shame that the press has taken such an (selectively) adversarial stance. I completely agree with you.

And the current adminstration hasn't?  He's been pounding that 'fake news' diatribe since well before the election.

Anyone who believes it has been conned.  Remember, the country elected a guy who is a seven time bankrupt businessman who gloats about grabbing women by the vajayjay.

Sorry E...the job of the Fourth Estate is to always question a bullshitter.  That's what Trump is at the core.  And don't say 'all politicians are bullshitters'.  Yes they  may be, but Trump stands alone atop bullshit mountain.

patric, that is an excellent assessment of how we got to a point in civilization where reporters think they are owed anything they want.  Wink

Look I ain't saying Gianforte didn't do something incredibly stupid. But his stupid behavior doesn't excuse stupid behavior exhibited all the time by pushy reporters that in my opinion cross a lot of lines, all because "it is their right". I'm about sick of people granting themselves rights.

The men who founded this country seemed to feel that the pursuit of truth was so much a right they put first on the list.

As far as Gianforte, his sin wasnt so much A&B on a reporter but issuing "alternative facts" blaming the victim; that, and apparently being too stupid to realize the recorder the reporter had in his hand might actually be recording.

When your political gameplan is built on making up your own facts, of course your biggest threat are the people whose job it is to investigate those facts.  Gianforte might never roll another reporter again, but he's demonstrated he has no qualms about adjusting the truth to suit his needs.

Well, the people of Montana do not seem to care what the founding fathers think about the press, or who's facts to believe. They are probably like many of us and don't care about whiny reporters. I just thought this whole thing was hilarious given all the beatings that left-wingers/pu$$iss have been handing out on conservatives on college campuses and rallies.

The people making America great Vs the people who made America?   Their ignorance is a weakness, not a strength.

And where do you fit in the "make America great" and "made America great"? Are you in the "I do jack smile and choose to b*tch" group of people?

Thats simply not true.  The powerful must always be held accountible, from the head of state tapping out 140 characters in the dead of night to the frightened cop with his finger on the trigger, we know we have the right to know the truth from people who claim to act on our behalf.
Montana was just the latest representation of people taking their freedom for granted.

Actually, in case you missed it in school...the First Amendment acknowledges and openly STATES that right.  It's that free press thing....

That pesky Constitution shooting down right wing extremist BS again...  Way to go Montana!  Going against the Constitution just like Okrahoma does!!
