    Pretty much all of United States history, and a good bit of post 19th Century European history, informs the casual student of politics,......say seventh grade level,........that the ability to silence a free press,.....no matter how stupid, ignorant , or wrong,(.......see National "Enquirer",.....the newspaper with the largest circulation in the U.S.,......that can't even spell it's own name correctly,....and gave us stories like "BatBoy Lives!".....)..........does not reside in any branch of government,.....and is protected by that dastardly First Amendment.......

    Whether Mr. Trump is either grossly misinformed about basic seventh-grade civics principles,.....or he is a flagrant and serial liar of convenience,.....will probably be finally decided in the Court of Public Opinion,.....from which there is no appeal.........

    I , for one,....am willing to give Mr. Trump the benefit of the doubt, and say that his knowledge of basic democratic principles is minuscule, to say the least,......and he is "learning" on the job. The problem with learning the Presidency,..."on the job",...so to speak, is that if you're starting off with a less than seventh grade understanding of basic civics,.....and you proudly declare you don't read books,....and the books you've "written",....( see Tony Schwartz...)...were all ghost written,........well, then the process may take decades,..if not a lifetime,....and as we all know, a Presidential term is 4 years........

    The other option,.....that Mr. Trump is a prolifigate liar,....in spite of his massive I.Q......is sure to leave our allies around the world scratching their heads, and wondering about whether anything he says can be taken at face value,.....and that ....either in spite of,...or because of,...that massive intellect,.....Mr.Trump chose to ....."lie"....about his knowledge of basic government, by making a statement so breathtakingly idiotic,.....that most other heads of state will be wondering about lead levels in the White House water supply......is not a prospect that I care to contemplate, especially with Mr.Trump's finger so close to the nuclear button........

    Ah,...thank you. I think most of us guessed that their bias was to the right end of the spectrum. But it's good to see it verified, and to look at the list of other news organizations ranked the same, to see if they are in .....good company,...so to speak....

    Keep an eye on the Yemeni civil war and Saudi Arabia's sponsoring of civilian genocide there. We are heavily supplying Saudi Arabia there,....and the United States will be complicit when war crimes charges start to appear.

    Part of the flap with Qatar was about that,...and Al Jazeera's ongoing reporting of Saudi atrocities....

    This is why our......"allies"...in the region,......Saudi Arabia, UAE,Bahrain and Egypt,......tried to blockade Qatar. Al Jazeera is based there and protected by the government of Qatar,........So is the largest United States military base in the Middle East........

    Mr. Trump chose to side with Saudi Arabia,............Kind of leaves that military base hanging in limbo......

    Saudi Arabia said they would lift the blockade of Qatar,......if the government would shut down Al Jazeera,.....an independently-run news organization heavily relied on and respected by most of the Arab world.

    Why did Mr. Trump choose Saudi Arabia's side?

    There is just one problem with that way of thinking. Nowadays, everything has gone political, and you have to fact-check the fact-checkers because they all have an agenda.

    Most don't care about their reputation nowadays, it's more about the money from the advertisers. And if they print favorable stories that promote the advertiser's agenda, they get more money.

    This would be my recommendation. Take every issue individually, and analyze it for yourself.

    Nobody would support that, not even us from the right.
    He was making a statement and it worked.
    You guys need to stop taking him so literally.
    He's unconventional, but he knows how to get his point across.

    A better question is why did Hillary Clinton take so much money from Saudi Arabia, since they oppress women?

    It wasn't a lie, it was a statement intended to slam the media, and only the brain dead would actually think that Trump COULD yank a major network off the air.
    Where do you fit in?

    It doesn't matter how many times you tell the same lie, it will never become true.

    I recall the same story however Bernie's name has yet to come up during Mueller's investigation so it's all good until further notice

    I would say DWS did a bigger # on Bernie and she paid the price for it

    Sometimes people in politics DO see justice served....
