    So let's see here, do you think for one moment, any of these over inflated egotistical, over paid "anchors" will act independently to bring you the real news, when they are paid this kind of money or would it be more accurate to say that they will keep their mouths "moving" in a way, that spouts only what they are told to say?

    That is quite the list M-Albion-3D
    Thank you for your opinion.

    Seems the PEOTUS is still upset over his press treatment during the election.
    However, because of the first amendment I suspect everyone of them will be around tomorrow regardless of being yelled at.

    IMHO The new President will have to come to terms with the fact that millions of Americans sit down in front of their TV each night and depend on these talking heads for News.
    Now that he has it out of his system, maybe something more constructive can be accomplished on the news dissemination front.
    Going to be a long four years if we have to wait on Twitter feeds for Presidential decrees.

    I think this presidency will be very good for 'Trump Inc' and other fat cats but there will be very little in it for the poor man on the street. Who knows I hope he proves me wrong.
    Here's an article that I think is far more relevant and germane. Could be not what some are saying but those who are listening?

    Wow! I wish I was getting those salaries (though I prefer print). I studied some journalism in high school and college. Majored in it in college for a while but, since I couldn't pass a typing test of 40 words per minute, I had to drop it. It is a career I've never been able to get out of my system. I should do more blogging.

    Seems like the action of a would be despot, crushing the freedom of the press because they don't print what the 'great leader' thinks. Checks and balances if he ends up throwing his wieght around like that in office - he will want to clamp down of free speech. Accusing them of lies? What a monster

    PEOTUS Trump did have a point about how the media predicted his loss. Obviously they were wrong and he is justified complaining about it.
    IMHO he could have been more gracious about it, after all he did win and media has egg on their face.
    PEOTUS does have a temper and is not afraid to let it show. Let's hope once he vents, we can move on to more productive things without holding grudges.
    And maybe the media will take away a new feel for the need to make better predictions next time.

    They were just following the polls and common sense. That's hardly a crime.

    No crime, but apparently one of the worst insults is to be called a LOSER.

    I think Richard Dolan describes among other things, the reality of the MSN networks before the election.

    MSN (MS/NBC news) networks? Did you mean MSM (main stream media) networks?
