Trump Only Does Interviews With Ass Kissers

Trump hates doing interviews with the ‘fake news’ unless they’re the fake news that likes him. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, shows you a compilation of conservative media personalities kissing Trump’s ass. [Have the barf bag ready!!! ]

Fox News Employees Embarrassed By Own Network
Fox News has always been right wing propaganda, but lately it’s gotten so bad some of their own are speaking out. Anonymously, of course.

Can Fox News Survive the Trump Presidency?
Embattled Network Faces Lawsuits, Aging Viewership, New Competitors
by Alexander Nazaryan

Fox was wildly successful before Trump, and has been in a swoon since he became president. But can too much love be fatal?

Fox News is destroying America. Its anchors are humorless propagandists for President Donald Trump, lacking dignity and honesty, humility and heart. The cable news network is a spigot from which right-wing misinformation flows unceasingly, flooding the nation with untruth, making millions wonder whether Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, as he claims, or in Indonesia, behind a mosque where fanatics plotted the destruction of America and the National Football League.


Fox News is saving America by telling truths you won’t hear on CNN or read in The New York Times, where liberal pieties prevail. It speaks for the millions of forgotten Americans in small towns whose newspapers have died and whose factories have closed. Fox News is the bulwark that keeps at bay political correctness, socialism and soccer.


Fox News is America, glorious and exasperating, bellicose and enthralling. At battle with itself and outside forces, Fox News helped create the splendid turbulence of our political civic life—but is now threatened by it. You read Alexis de Tocqueville to understand the nation in its infancy. You watch Fox News commentator Sean Hannity to glimpse the nation in midlife crisis, mournful for past glories, a little despondent about present ills, but unfailingly optimistic about the future. For once, China and California are vanquished, and this flailing little century will belong to America, as did the glorious one before it.

“It’s just everywhere,” says Lauren Duca, a political columnist for Teen Vogue who has been a target of Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson. Like many progressives, she charges Fox News with feeding on “conservative paranoia” while also manufacturing it, a brutally effective and profitable feedback mechanism. Her parents watch it, she tells me. So do my mother and uncle, hooked long ago by its loathing for the Clintons and its love of Israel. It plays at Duca’s gym. It plays at mine too. Actually, a confession: I am the one who turns the television to Fox News. Because while I find much of Fox News objectionable, I also find much of Fox News irresistible.

‘A Vulgar Turn of Mind’

Visiting the young American republic in 1831, de Tocqueville marveled at the flourishing free press. In his native France, he would write in Democracy in America, “almost all [the press’s] power is centered in the same spot, and vested in the same hands.” He figured the diversity of American journalism resulted from the vastness of the nation. “The United States have no metropolis; the intelligence as well as the power of the country are dispersed abroad.”

The press was, like the country itself, decentralized and unruly. The typical American journalist had “a scanty education and a vulgar turn of mind,” he wrote, and made “an open and coarse appeal to the passions of the populace; and he habitually abandons the principles of political science to assail the characters of individuals, to track them into private life, and disclose all their weaknesses and errors.”

More than any other major media organization in modern American history, Fox News has found a way to appeal to those “passions of the populace.” The network represents a strain of populism that political scientist Richard Hofstadter described in Anti-Intellectualism in American Life, his classic 1963 study of demagoguery. Hofstadter wrote that modern American anti-intellectualism had its birth in the erosion of the agrarian society de Tocqueville had observed a little more than a century before. “As a consequence, the heartland of America, filled with people who are often fundamentalist in religion, nativist in prejudice, isolationist in foreign policy, and conservative in economics, has constantly rumbled with an underground revolt against all these tormenting manifestations of our modern predicament.”

AND, didn't you know, THERE ARE NO SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS against him! Rolling Eyes

On Friday, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo bluntly declared that President Donald Trump is facing “no allegations” of sexual harassment. Pundits and media watchers widely mocked the segment with former Obama administration deputy Secretary of Labor Chris Lu, generally labeling it a disaster.

Now Bartiromo is hitting back, blocking major media figures on Twitter who had the temerity to comment. Over the weekend, CNN’s “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter reported being blocked by Bartiromo after tweeting about the segment.

Bartiromo also cut off her former Fox News colleague Gretchen Carlson, who has now become icon of the broader movement against workplace sexual harassment.

Not everyone on Fox News is a Trump sycophant. There are people like Neil Cavuto and Shep Smith. Very Happy

Neil Cavuto Shreds Trump: 'You're The President... Why Don’t You Act Like It?'
[HuffPost] Ed Mazza

Fox News host Neil Cavuto is calling out President Donald Trump over his latest Twitter attacks.

Over the weekend, in separate tweets, Trump went after Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and LaVar Ball, the father of one of three UCLA basketball players arrested in China on shoplifting charges. Trump took credit for the players’ release, and when Ball refused to thank him, he tweeted that he “should have left them in jail.”

Cavuto wasn’t having it.

“Forget about either comment not being presidential,” he said. “At what point does the president see such remarks don’t even border on being human?”

Cavuto said Trump’s attacks are like “using a bazooka to respond to a pea shooter.”

Then, he really laid into Trump for demanding “gratitude bordering on groveling,” and urged him to pick his battles.

“Last time I checked, you are the president of the United States,” he said. “Why don’t you act like it?”

Cavuto has made headlines before for his stinging criticism of the president.

In October, he warned Trump over attacks on fellow Republicans, telling the president “you are running out of friends.”

And in June, Cavuto told the president to stop scapegoating the media.

“Mr. President, it is not the fake news media that’s your problem,” he said. “It’s you.”

Time is full of sh*t. People were ordering fake covers online, adding their own photos. I was going to buy one years ago.. TIME may have stopped them for trademark violations back then. That this is suddenly a news item is 'fake news'. People who don't know about fake covers think this is important, when they were sold as 'jokes'.

This post of UnMask's is rather funny, considering Trump's latest claim about turning down being "Person of the Year" for two years running. In a million years he would turn it down, and I really don't think Time Magazine would consider giving him the honor twice.

Trump claims he declined Time Magazine's 'Person of the Year' award

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that he turned down a potential offer to be TIME Magazine's coveted "Person of the Year" after, Trump says, the magazine told him he would "probably" be given the honors.

Time Magazine: Trump’s Person of the Year Boast Is ‘Total BS’
The magazine says Trump’s claim to have turned down an offer to “probably” be named Person of the Year is “incorrect.”

Time Magazine has disputed President Trump’s Twitter boasts claiming he turned down an interview after being told he’d “probably” be named the magazine’s Person of the Year. In a statement late Friday, the magazine said Trump was “incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year.” “TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6,” the magazine tweeted. Alan Murray, the magazine’s chief content officer, called Trump’s claims “total BS,” saying there was “not a speck of truth” to his comments. Trump had claimed he “took a pass” on doing an interview and photo shoot with the magazine because being told he would “probably” be Person of the Year was not good enough. The president has repeatedly bragged about clinching the magazine’s coveted “Person of the Year” cover in the past and has falsely claimed he holds a record number of cover appearances. Fake issues of the magazine with Trump on the cover were reportedly spotted at his private golf resorts earlier this year.


What I don't understand is why Trump keeps tweeting those lies which are so easily debunked. What is he trying to achieve? Bolster his reputation as the biggest liar of all time? Rolling Eyes

Trump says he turned down Time's 'Person of the Year'

Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump on Friday said he turned down being named Time's "Person of the Year" after the magazine asked him for an interview and photo shoot but did not confirm he would be chosen.

He tweeted: "Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named 'Man (Person) of the Year,' like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot.

"I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!"

Time responded on its own Twitter account: "The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6."

Former editor Richard Stengel went further, retweeting Trump's tweet with the comment: "Hate to tell you but that PROBABLY means you're NOT Person of the Year.

"They just wanted a photo shoot. But I'm sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage."

The magazine confers the distinction on the person who "for better or for worse... has done the most to influence the events of the year."

Trump was named the magazine's 2016 "Person of the Year" following his election, in an edition which carried the title "President of the Divided States of America."

The former real estate tycoon keeps a close eye on the award, and complained on Twitter in 2012, 2014 and 2015 about not being picked.

In June, The Washington Post revealed several of his golf clubs prominently display a framed copy of a fake Time cover featuring several positive headlines and Trump as its cover.

Since announcing his presidential run, Trump has had an antagonistic relationship with much of the US media, accusing critical outlets of peddling "fake news."


Top reactions:

As delusional as ever.

This idiot lies about things that no one even asked him about.

Russian Agent of the Year? Trump is the one - Agent Orange. super grin
