Posted on 02/17/2017 10:07:50 PM PST by Helicondelta
Appearing on Fox Newss Outnumbered on Friday, former United Nations ambassador John Bolton blasted NBCs Chuck Todd for taking to Twitter on Thursday to attack President Trumps un-American criticism of the media during a press conference: I thought that tweet was one of the most foolish things I've seen from the media in a long time, and you know, that's a pretty low bar there. The media is not entitled to worship.
He continued: It's not entitled to respect as an institution. Its not entitled to deference by political leaders. It is entitled under the First Amendment to say what it wants to say. Thats it. And you know, the notion that the press is somehow specially protected by the First Amendment...that they have a special status, is ridiculous.

Todd is a POS like so many of his deceitful colleagues.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
The media is just a glorified version of the old Yellow Journalists hollering from atop their soap boxes in the street.
Man, I need more of these truth bombs dropped on the elite socialist one worlder libtards.
I am starting to get spoiled. Almost makes me want to watch uniparty media just to see the reality fireworks.
Yes, i have coined “reality fireworks”.
Yes, the media has twisted the 1st Amendment just like they twist the ILLEGAL alien stories to be about “undocumented immigrants”.
They think the 1st amendment grants them elitist, protected status on the basis of their nasty profession. No, Chuck, the 1st amendment is not about YOU personally.
I hope Trump can repeal the 1A.
obvious what they are trying to do...they are back to this Russia and Trump stole the election story..the Flynn thing kinda brought it back to life.....hoping that it drives Trumps numbers so low, that Macain ..Linda etc flip and try to impeach or drive Trump out of office. And dont think for a minute that Ryan ...Mccarthy, and yes Pence would be more than happy to do it.This is gonna be an epic battle, and Trumps a helluva fighter, so we’ll see.
Who needs F Chuck and the Old Media when you have the internet?
Milo is also a journalist, but somehow his speech is not sacrosanct like theirs is. Wonder why?
I like the old Biden request of “Stand UpChuck”.
LOL Stand up Chuck.
Can you imagine if a Republican had said Stand up Chuck to a wheelchair bound man????
He would have been said to have been cruel and insensitive to someone with a disability.
His record would be searched for any legislative or executive actions taken against the Americans With Disabilities Act or other similar laws and policies.
He would have been the target of the late night comedians clucking about how cruel and insensitive Republicans are.
But since Biden said it, and Biden is a good Democrat, nothing was ever said again about this incident.
I can’t tell from your brief statement if you intend sarcasm.
What would repealing 1A authorize the govt to do?
No reason to do something so stupid.
Just give lavish exclusive appearances to Diamond and Silk.
They are every bit as much the press by constitutional standards as the Associated Press.
No he can’t. It’s either you are being very sarcastic for fun or you are posting things that would make conservatives look bad.
Um, the first amendment says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press;." or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
So they are singled out and that can be taken to mean that they do have a "special status."
Of course most of them are idiots and libtards but they are idiots and libtards with a special status because they are mentioned specifically in the first amendment.
MAGA! Drain the swamp!
Literally everything about our current media is “ridiculous”.
The beauty part is not just killing the MSM, but we could also have a Muslim ban without any sugar-coating. Also, leftists could be stopped from assembling.
