Sorry but your the brainwashed person hear.. I did not even vote for Trump, and I am not a republican. But I can see bullshit, and I can gather facts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V98Xu1qGDic

You so drunk on your liberal brainwashing, you can not even think for your self anymore. You need the liberal media to tell you what to think.

I get my information from a mix of sites, both sides of the spectrum, but yes I do use Info wars, but so does other news medias. I prefer to get them from the sources most of the time, such as police reports and such, but some things unfortunately you have to go through the media filter, just to get some information.

Difference about us, is I use left and right news outlets to find the truth within both sides, and cut away the agenda. 'CNN hardly ever has any useful info, just all agenda pushing... same with NY Times. even other left wing new medias are far less bias than them.

My question is should something be done about it?


The (news) media is the press. Freedom of press is protected under the constitution. So no, nothing should be done about it. I believe that news should be free to publish whatever they'd like as long as it isn't libel.

If media's slander causes another person to commit arsenal, then the two groups should be held responsible for their respective actions. To me it doesn't make sense to make someone else pay damages committed by another person. No one forced another person to burn a house down.

Ads has less to do with media and more to do with the actual product that someone is going to eventually buy with their money. You can't sell a phone that later comes in the mail as a toaster -- and if that person uses the toaster as a phone and causes a fire, the seller can't be charged with arsenal

'But they can be charged with false advertising, and any damages created from depicted false information they can be charged for.


If a media directly calls someone a monster that is going to kill all Mexicans on sight, based on 0 evidence, and that leads to Mexicans panicking at the sight of that person and leads to him reacting from that panic in a manner that leads him to attack that person (in his mind in self defense. ) Then the damage was created by misinformation the direct actions of said media. Media should be responsible for that action.

the wording of this paragraph

If "media" calls Trump a monster that's going to go after the Mexicans and is the new Hitler, that's an opinion. There is no action of fraud for puffery. We can't be responsible for all the violent ways people interpret information.

and let's pretend Trump does have a criminal record against mexicans, a person still can't get away with randomly attacking him for that alone. If my neighbor is a sexual offender, I can't punch this person just for taking out the trash. It's still a crime that I'd be responsible for.

The funny thing with law is that you are still expected to act like a reasonable person.

The same could be said for the social media like Facebook and Google+ where the administrators hack into their user`s accounts so they can steal ownership of the media contents, online connection, and credibility from their hard-working innovative users. The lies from the hacked accounts may even be worse than the lies from the press since the white-collar hackers can use their stolen identities to gain the trust from the citizen. The hackers are the racist economic right who claim that their users should leave the social media with the white-collar hacking even when the users have to abandon their hard-earned media contents, connections, and respect from that social media.

If a person post anything that threaten the Capitalist politics or expose the white-collar hacking in a group, then the Capitalist will hack into the moderator accounts of that group to censor that user; the hacker will bully, isolate, harass, censor, or ban that user for posting anything that the Capitalist do not like. The Capitalist hacker can engage in this cyber-bullying because they can use their stolen identities to claim ownership of any groups in their social media so they will have absolute authority in those groups and decide what those groups should be.

Worse of all, the racists Capitalists can hide the white-collar hacking from the users so the users will depend heavily in those social media for information. Capitalism depend on informed decision by the customers but the false information from the hacked accounts can manipulate the customers to invest in corrupt and ineffective companies.

Todays Press is not the Media, once the media turn the press into a business they lost the right of free speech. Hence why alternative press like found on the internet is are protected by free speech but once it becomes a business they loose that right.

They should be under the same regulations as other businesses.
