What is it with lawmakers who mess around in fights that aren’t theirs and yet can’t get judges nominated to the federal bench confirmed? On Thursday the “upper chamber” of Congress passed a resolution claiming that the media is not the enemy of the people despite the fact that We the People recognize they don’t tell the whole honest truth all that often.
The nonbinding resolution, which cleared the chamber by unanimous consent, also touts the “indispensable role of the free press” and says an attack on the media meant to “systematically undermine the credibility of the press as a whole [is] an attack on our democratic institutions.”
Democrats. Figures. They aren’t all that interested in an HONEST press, either.
“There is nothing that I would want more for our Country than true FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. The fact is that the Press is FREE to write and say anything it wants, but much of what it says is FAKE NEWS, pushing a political agenda or just plain trying to hurt people. HONESTY WINS!” he said in a tweet.
Honesty should win, but as Winston Churchill observed, lies [and fake news] make it halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. That’s the reality that President Donald Trump has to deal with, and that’s the reason We the People stand behind him in his very public feud with those who produce and broadcast fake news.
