OK. Lets's start with all the "birthers" (remember that Trump was one of them).

Trump wouldn't be president today if only the truth was reported. He manipulated the press to give him free coverage which he didn't deserve by making sensational and untrue statements.

Politifact. Owned by Tampa Bay Times. Endorsed Hillary "Rotten" Clinton for president. They are extremely biased liberal hacks. Like 99% of the "news" media. Nothing they write can be believed.

So, tell us. What are reliable and trustworthy news sources?

So, I'll say it again. If you dismiss out of hand anything you don't already agree with, you are completely closed minded. If you can't learn anything, you can't be a productive and thoughtful member of society. If you can't think critically, you can't ever be counted on to get to the underlying content that can create paradigm shifting points of view.

You don't see the danger in waving your hand and dismissing an entire set of data based, not on your thorough and diligent vetting of that data, but rather on a preconceived notion as to the validity and reliability of the source? How is that any different than the religious person who dismisses evolution without ever bothering to learn the science and evidence that supports it, just because they don't agree with it?

Your worldview is so fragile, so tenuous, that you have to shield it from any contrary information that might cause the bubble to burst. That's disastrous for you as an individual and in a broader sense, for society as a whole. It leads to stagnation, complacency, and ultimately decay and rot.

It's easy. Put sources on the record. Record them. These fuckers are just making shit up and claiming "sources." That's bullshit and it needs to stop. They shouldn't report shit unless it's been 100% confirmed.

When NBC reports something, and one of the most highly respected men to ever put on a military uniform has to put out a statement saying "Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false. This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible" then we have problems. NBC outright lied, or their "source" lied. Someone should be punished.

So when Fox News repeated endlessly the birther story for obama or any of the myriad of other fake news stories they purported to be true, because “sources” they too should be fined?

What about the “pro” trump stories that are quoted by sources that appear on breitbart — they’re not always naming them either. Guess they too should be fined for making shit up also.

Sources are kinda funny, they won’t give information if they’re outed.

Apparently anything Trump and Matthis say is gospel. And that's it.

So that one news source is trusty and reliable but literally every other major news source is lying? Just need clarification.

They’re famous for saying “sources inside the whitehouse tell Fox News....”

So, let me understand this, when they say that they shouldn’t be fined or be forced to reveal their sources. Only the other guys?
