    Don't worry - the compromised media can respond - by murdering the truth.

    How many of them have covered the set of dodgy disappearances, accidents, suicides and unusual events collectively known as Arkanicide involving anybody who could possibly be a threat to the Clintons ?

    Wikileaks are offerring a reward in regard of the murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich who is assumed to be the source of the DNC revelations about the shafting of Sanders. As per the othrr Akanacide deaths nobody is ever found guilty.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Well lets face it RTE and The Irish Times are the enemy of the Irish people. People of quality on this forum happily acknowledge that.

    He is saying what his voters already believe to be true, and believed before he came along on scene.

    Even Fox News are saying he's full of sh!t now...

    No doubt Trumpsters would have been gorging on Fox up until now...

    I guess they'll have to search elsewhere for another echo chamber...

    It's amazing to me the number of people who are prepared to state openly that they prefer to see a compulsive liar in power than to hear opinions they don't like in the media. Especially when most of those opinions seem to be in the process of gradually being proven right. Even his own supporters on Fox can't brazen it out any more.

    Perhaps that's what you find hardest to bear.

    As a matter of interest, I'd be curious to know what political party you support in Ireland?

    I recommend that you watch the documentary.

    Afterwards you will understand ehy do many people depend money thry hsve not earned on junk that they do not need to impress people who are no use as friends.
    You say this like you are in the local pub agreeing with your mate over a pint. This has come from the US PRESIDENT HIMSELF and the OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. The most powerful person arguably in the world. He is undermining a core part of the US Constitution - The freedom of the press, that is explicitly written into the constitution.

    Do you really think he is trying to discredit the media here in a selfless manner to sort out what the likes of Curtis might be saying and for the good of the people .. come on, wake up FFS.

    It is very worrying watching this latest phase in the long term unravelling of US civil life. It is all beginning to look very Ukrainian or Venezuelan in its level of dysfunction. Both sides are flat-out lying about each other on a daily basis, routine acts and decisions get turned into divisive sagas, and coherent and consistent voices are really hard to find. At this stage both sides are as worrying and off-putting as each other. The root of it is not so much that Trump was elected and some people refuse to accept this but that something has been happening to the quality of US democracy for a very long time now, and the Trump election has been the occassion where this dysfunction has come to the surface.

    As it happens he is not undermining the freedom of the press- he is undermining public faith in the press. Those are not the same thing.
