The media endangers itself

Journalists no longer should be afforded any protection, because journalists are not neutral observers. As they have chosen their side, they should be treated like the enemies of law and order that they are. As the primary enforcers of "hate speech", they have no justification to hide their actions behind "freedom" or "free speech".

"I remember this guy Velshi," Trump said. "He got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas, and he went down. He was down. 'My knee, my knee.' Nobody cared, these guys didn't care, they moved him aside. And they just walked right through. It was the most beautiful thing," Trump said. "No, because after we take all that crap for weeks and weeks, and you finally see men get up there and go right through them, wasn't it really a beautiful sight? It's called law and order."

In a statement, MSNBC responded to Trump's taunt, accusing him of encouraging violence towards the press. 

"Freedom of the press is a pillar of our democracy. When the President mocks a journalist for the injury he sustained while putting himself in harm's way to inform the public, he endangers thousands of other journalists and undermines our freedoms."

First, the USA is not a democracy. Second, the press has already undermined those freedoms. They don't deserve any protection at all. They deserve prosecution.

Even Hollywood hates the press when it's not being sycophantic enough. Bashing the press is a crowd-pleaser anytime.

All my life, I've heard people say we should have a president who's not a slick politician, who talks like regular people and says the things we say around the dinner table. Now that we have one, a bunch of them turn up their noses and whine that he's not being presidential. If he did nothing else (and he has), the fact that he says things like this would make him my favorite president ever.

It's interesting they always refer to it as 'our democracy', in the possessive tense. 'Our democracy', they trumpet against the man the people voted for, 'democratically'. Why do they think that phrase still carries a positive meaning? 'Our democracy' for them lies in the right to loot and riot and scream and harangue, to destroy the livelihoods of those you don't like; still further to plot and call for their murder and genocide. To demur, obfuscate and then reframe the narrative with an aim to avoid revealing the truth that in fact 'our democracy' ends in streets running with blood, gulags and starvation.

The news also covered for the assassination of Aaron Danielson (Jay Bishop) and the murder of a mother in Indiana (who said All Lives Matter). They helped spark the riots with repeated bad reporting & commentary (Jenna 6, Trayvon Martin shooting, Michael Brown shooting & George Floyd). The contempt the press feels is merely their feelings for public mirrored back.

Freedom of the press has been exploited by those who seek to perpetuate the fake news narrative psyop. That being said, it's still a core tenet of the American idea, to keep actual honest members of the press free to do their intended job of objective and impartial analysis to keep the general public informed, if such people even exist anymore.

Another reason the press doesn't deserve protection is that they DON'T go into dangerous places anymore. They didn't go into the no-go areas of Atlanta when the cops had the blue flu and report on the chaos there. They haven't gone and filmed most of the Antifa/BLM riots, except when they get word that some right-wingers are showing up to potentially give them some photogenic support for their narrative. A literal communist revolution is happening in their urban backyards, and they aren't reporting on it.

There's a meme that sums them up: CNN doing a feature on Trump eating fried chicken with a knife and fork, while a terrorist attack scrolls by at the bottom of the screen. They are propagandists and entertainers for the left. They deserve no more protection than any other court jester.

It's not a cuck move to stand to an oath. A truly free press SHOULD be protected.

That being said, however, there are certain rules one must observe to be labelled 'free press'. When those rules are violated, you are no longer the press, and are an enemy combatant.

It's like hiding an anti-aircraft emplacement inside of a red cross tent. It's called espionage, and should be persecuted as such. Hiding behind the 'press' label should be punished.

The press are liars. They lie with stolen teeth. Everything they have, everything they are, is false.

The first amendment does not establish the press as a protected class of scribblers for hire. On the contrary, press freedom is merely an explicit subset the general freedom of speech.

Since the press have made themselves enemies of the customary freedom of speech Americans have enjoyed, since they have been willing agents of cancel culture, they cannot claim the protection of the 1st Amendment.

They’ve chosen a side and it’s not yours. It’s not ours. It’s not America’s. Fine. What logically follows from that, will follow from that.

"Freedom", they posit, inverting the concept to poison the word by demolishing its definition. Their "freedom" does not refer to the political condition of liberty, but rather their government-protected license to lie and defame with impunity (a license not similarly extended to you). Their "freedom" is Newspeak.

"that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same."


The weirdness lies in the concept of 'the press'. the press is specifically the written word. the idea of 'the press' as a class is a modern concept... and while I will certainly obey my oath and protect the dissemination of the truthful written word, that does not extend to protecting every single person that claims to be of the social class referred to as 'the press'.

Assuming the author of such written word follows their end of the bargain, namely printing the truth, I will absolutely protect their right to do so.

But the moment they start lying, propagandizing, or agitating, they are not entitled to the freedom to print anymore. If they wish to print an opinion, as long as it is clearly labelled as such, they are free to do so... but if they print a false word, they are no longer protected by my oath.

What vital service have they performed? What is their "essential role" for the Republic?
Consider for a minute that there was NO SUCH THING as the modern "The Press" in the Colonial era. There were a few broadsheets, such as Ben Franklin's, that carried advertisements, interesting gossip, snide insults to the printer's enemies and rivals, and his political opinions. The idea that there is some carve-out in the Constitution for organizations that call themselves The Press is both laughably ignorant and ahistorical.
Originally, freedom of the press was a mere extension of freedom of speech. Just as you could not punish a man for what he thought or what he said, the fact that he printed it did not render him somehow more liable.
There is no special exemption for someone because they claim to be The Press. Reporters are not exempt from the law.

I think the problem is one of semantics. "Freedom of speech" means to say what you want. "Freedom of the Press" means to WRITE what you want.


The problem is, the scumbags saw an opportunity to gain complete immunity by LABELING themselves 'the press'.

The press is not a class of people. It means simply to write and distribute your words.

It would be like some group labeling themselves 'the religion' and gaining complete immunity to all crimes.


When I refer to 'free speech' I explicitly mean that I support people's right to say whatever they want as long as it does not cause physical harm to others.

You have the freedom to bear arms too, but the minute you use that right to shoot an innocent person, you will be punished, and rightfully so.

The minute you cause physical harm with your free speech or free press, you need to be punished. And I am sick to death of a privileged class of people avoiding all the rightful punishments simply because they have grasped a label and corrupted, DAMAGED the constitution in order to commit crimes free from justified reprisal.


As an example, doxxing someone who suffers reprisal is aiding and abbetting a crime. Printing a Lie is fraud and should be punished as grand fraud. interfering with the truth in order to screw with an election is treason and should be punished as such... and not one of those examples violates the freedom of the press as guaranteed by the constitution.

Blogger Dire Badger September 21, 2020 4:16 AM  

The freedom to say or print whatever you want is essential to a free country, just like the freedom to worship who or what you want and the freedom to arm yourself as you wish.

These rights do not grant people special privileges because of the labels they invent. Just because you have a freedom, does not mean you should not be immediately punished for abusing that privilege or using it to revoke the same rights as others.

The moment the phrase 'legitimate press' appeared, it should have been obvious to everyone that the first amendment had been abused and twisted into a new peerage.

It's time to end the new peerage calling themselves 'the press', including all of their tools, 'The newsmedia' and 'the entertainment industry'. By fiat or blood, the new gods must be cast down once again.

"A cuck to what exactly, the Constitution? Do you even know what that word means?"

Please state where exactly in the US Constitution it lists media corporations, or their owners, or their employees under the title "press". Go and read it, because you certainly don't know what either word means.

@18 "I’d like to see them dropped on a very remote island with little or no resources. Although execution is much more practical."

Make it self-supporting
{cue booming announcer's voice-over:}:

"Ladies and Gentlemen, WELCOME to the Survival Battle of the Mainstream Media!

On the 'left' side of our deserted island, we have the paper and internet press mainstream media. On the other 'left' side of the island, we have the TV and radio mainstream media. Between the two sides, for the first four days only, is "The Trump Wall" -- which will keep either side from invading and stealing resources, or harming their opposers.

No food, no tools, and they have only THREE days and nights to find food and water and to prepare shelter and weapons, before we RAISE the "Trump Wall" between the two left-sides.

{developer's note: should we provide one-foot-taller ladders instead?}

It's a RACE!
{executive note: don't use that word, call it a competition}

Which group will have built sufficient shelters for their members and enough weapons and traps to protect their new homeland? Which group will be quick enough to protect what they will need to survive? How will they work out, in just THREE days, what form of government they will need to keep themselves alive?

Folks, STAY TUNED for day one: IT'S:

The Survival Battle of the Mainstream MEDIA!

@25 "They deserve no more protection than any other court jester."

They are not anywhere CLOSE to court jesters.

They intentionally hide probably 80+% of the attacks by blacks on Whites and Asians while focusing the rarer revers; they rarely touch on "the knock-out game"; they slipped and only ONCE reported on the slashing with razors and knives of Whites and Asians on the NYFC subways (funny?: ONLY when a couple of the TRIBE got sliced... by mistake?); they never report on the rapes, of White women EVERYWHERE and White men in prison...

They make up out of smokey air some "right-wing extremists" in these antifa/BLM riots -- but can't actually show us any; unless you count trying to make St Kyle of Kenosha into one... They cover over all the violence and viciousness of the enemy working to destroy us.

They show pictures of a 10-yr-old Trayvon instead of the nearly 18-yr-old thug he was. Last week, they ACTUALLY showed pictures of enemies who are held on Federal charges for throwing a molotov cocktail into a police car, NOT as the employed LAWYERS in NYFC they are -- but as 8- or 9-yr old children!!

Court jesters don't 'trade' in enemy propaganda, they trade in carefully skirting the foibles and evils of the 'ruler(s).' You give them too much cover by even comparing them to jesters! You malign jesters!

They're not even a slick as a Wormtongue!!

This, exactly.
