So CNN should not report on Trump?

Did you feel the same way about Fox News when the reported on Obama every day?


Actually, yes I did, I've still a lot of respect for President Obama. I may not have agreed with a lot of his policy decisions, but I respect him.


Trump is the POTUS. Everything he says or does has an effect on all of us. He should be covered completely. Ignoring his remarks or actions does a great disservice to the people. If he doesn't want negative coverage, he should start acting like a freaking president instead of a reality show host.


I would add that Trump, like no other previous President creates and manifests controversies on a daily basis (see texts & his spoken words). It appears some of these are thought out & some are impulsive. He also lies on a daily basis. At this stage he is closing in on 7000 lies since his first day in office.

As a result, the free press has a responsibility and obligation to report on these, as well as anything he does that is positive. How often the reporting is done is up to the network or newspaper. Individuals can choose to watch networks that cover Trump like this or can choose to watch reruns of Gilligan's Island instead on another network.

Once again, my issue with CNN is that this appears to be ALL they "report" during their broadcasts

Might be a better option than CNN

You would learn more from sitcoms than the news. Gilligan's Island is an apt allegory for the current administration. I would add the Addam's Family - isolated, vain, petty, inept.

Just turn off your TV, it is garbage. Always has been. Talking about integrity of CNN vs Fox or whatever is a joke, it is the boob tube, designed to program you into drooling idiocy.

All ratings measure is how many flies are attracted to one steaming pile over another. The higher the ratings, the bigger the pile and the more brainwashed flies buzzing around it.
