I’ve long thought that to Trump, paying for publicity is like paying for sex. Cheating!
The liberal media are whores. They’ll take money.
I can’t recall the last time we watched anything at all on one of those networks.
Many millions of people would never have know Trump was running ads on their networks if they had just quietly run them.
Now by refusing the ads they give him more exposure than if they had run the ads,
By refusing the ads they make themselves less and less relevant.
And they become bigger irritants to the 63 million who voted for president Trump.
When the 2020 campaign really gets going will they run ads only for democrats and communists?
..............was what I’m thinking...............if ever there was a case for a network abusing it’s license it is this one.
I look for Trump to call for pulling all 4 networks license.
Trump just kicked the slats out from the democrats.
For a long time democrats have been expanding the campaign season.
Remember that Barack Obama officially announced his first candidacy in February 2007 - a full 21 months before the election.
And they usually start talking and hinting about a candidacy long before that.
So once again, Trump has beat them at their own game.
And I believe there are some rules that allow him to do certain things as an announced candidate that he cannot do otherwise.
2020 reelection? Did I fall asleep? What year is it?
Then I guess they should be free’d from the handcuffs of press credentials entirely.
No invites to any thing the press is invited to.
A document from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) indicates that Donald Trump took steps on the day when he was inaugurated to outmaneuver nonprofit organizations, leaving them unable to officially campaign against him over the next few years of his Presidency.
trump needs to quit playing mr nice guys with these pricks and sic the FFC on these bastards; maybe threaten a few dozen broadcast licenses.
And of course this means the Democrats will win in 2020 right? Ha ha ha ha go away and take your very limited reach with you.
Cable TV networks are not subject to FCC regulation as they do not have broadcast licenses. Broadcast licenses are only required if you broadcast using radio frequencies over the air.
Most of the Fake Newsers noted in the ad? Cable TV only.
Viral, yes. And perhaps land in front of a judge? Last I heard political speech is a particularly tricky category for any entity to so blatantly suppress. These outlets may have just stepped into a very expensive patch of legal mire. After all, if a baker must prepare a cake which contains statements anathema to his moral beliefs by what right does an FCC licensed broadcast utility refuse a political ad?
Thanks for adding/reminding us of this brilliant maneuver.
Once again, the self-righteous media declares what their interpretation is of free speech or what should be allowed on the airwaves. They have been so mind-numbingly biased and the polar opposite of impartial, but they still pull a stunt like this.
Run the Trump ads in local markets.
Dang good move by Trump there.
The elite mediots, who control BBC, ABCNNBCBS, Faux, the Ny/LA Slimes, WSJ, Compost, and LaRaza Slimes fail to realize: President Trump does not need them to speak to his 62+ million voters/us.
He Tweets us, sends his contributors emails and controls the White House digital system or he uses Youtube. He bypasses the left wing mediots, when he communicates directly with us.
So, neither President Trump, nor his 62+ million voters need nor do we want BBC, ABCNNBCBS, Faux, the Ny/LA Slime, WSJ, Compost, and LaRaza Times trying to tell us what our president is telling us. We know without their twisting and word games.
We dont need the old gotcha press conferences. With the whining and lying liberal mediots attacking our president. We are tired of the mediots lying and telling us what to believe and how to vote! Ban them from the White House. Trumps comments and statements are for his voters. We dont need lying liberal mediots to tell us what he says to us. There is zero filtering, adjusting and lying to us when Trump talks to us directly!
Official Washington is being traumatized by the tweets of Donald Trump.
Trump speaking directly to the people via Twitter or the Whitehouse.com is causing a crisis among mediots, politicians, Never Trumpsters and lobbyists. They just don't know how to handle Trumps Twitter feed which traumatizes Washington and his enemies.
