Pres. Trump is DONE with the fake news and lying media! In a tweet (see below), he called out NBC and mentioned revoking broadcast licenses for stations that broadcast biased, fake news. Should NBC be taken off the air? Vote in our CBC reader poll!
With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!

There IS a difference between Freedom of Speech and “lying”. Not different from fraud, scam artists and defamation. There should be a law in place that holds them accountable and jail time for purposely lying to the public.

I do not watch them at all!

NBC, and similar Networks, need their license revoked to ensure freedom of the press. Anti-American, pro Communist propaganda disguised as “the press” threatens the liberty and freedom of every American. Our press should be held accountable and responsible in providing unbiased, fact finding, truthful, fair, and balanced news. When “the press” intentionally ignores the above or is controlled by Anti-Americian propaganda, they must no longer be allowed to intentionally decieve and misled the American people.

Sometimes it takes a bully to beat the bullies!
It’s not about Donald Trump anyway. It’s about socialist communism vs. freedom. If you have common sense, you’d pick freedom, which is just what the American people picked!

This is war! The peacock should be plucked.

Lies, where ever they are found are of Satan. They must be countered always, even if that means shutting down lying broadcasting stations, in hopes of changing their ways. Freedom of speech is important but freedom of lies is evil.

Not if we want to remain a free nation, with freedom of the press and free speech. NBC, ABC, CBS has been biased for years. Fox pretends to be fair and balanced. The Atlanta Constitution and Journal is extremely biased. But, Fascism is a not the answer. The Liberals for years have wanted to shut down Conservative Radio. “The Last Man Standing” has been made to sit down. The answer is not censorship, the answer is education. We can not start banning free speech because we don’t like the content. We can confront lies with the truth. Truth is the answer. “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free!”

Liberal, left, and Democrat are euphemism for communist, socialist, and dictatorial government. The news media use the later terms to point out these differences but they are not. Communist and Socialist use the media as PROPAGANDA and are taught to use community organization, (something that the Clintons and Obamas have studied and used), to overthrow constitutional republics that are based on the Judeo-Christian values and tenents that raised them up. (Question: Where on earth or in history has every such a government existed or been formed?) Communist and Socialist make up lies to destroy those who represent the truth. They manipulate information, “fake news”. The State controlled governments and their PROPAGANDA are used to persuade the people for revolution, cause anarchy, and crisis. The United States of America was formed because of tyrannical Monarchy, another form of government similar to communism and socialism where there is no freedom and liberty to pursue what a person believes. Communism and socialism, and monarchy, and fascism overtake peoples who have FORGOTTEN THERE IS A GOD. What we are seeing in our day is an attempt to overthrow and change our Republican-Democracy here in the United States from the constitutional government it is. Why do you think they built into the system the election law that is called the Electoral College? So, the ill informed and manipulated by PROPAGANDA, whimsical public couldn’t revolt and overthrow the government, which is suppose to protect the people from “evil.” It is evil to make laws that allow and even worst fund the destruction of helpless babies developing in the womb and give “special rights” to people who want to reverse the rolls of gender and push it onto the nations children through a centralized government education system that dictates what is true and that says that worship of God is “illegal”. Better study history and His Story. Sounds like Newberry has been duped. A Republican-Democracy will protect the rights of “freedom of the press” but it also will protect “freedom of speech”, and all the other freedoms under its government equally, for all people it “SERVES”. Nobody in their right mind can agree with Fox News all the time but what they are doing is standing in the face of the blatant attempt to overthrow our Republican-Democracy and pointing out the “collusion” of the so-called Democratic Party with the “network news”, (which by-the-way is not “main stream” or even the majority view when the issues are explained equally), and which has been tainted and infused with unregenerate haters of God, on a mission of revolution to change our Consitution. We are now seeing an “elite” group of people stand up against the flag and the government it represents. They have benefited from the US Constitution and its laws and rose in power and money. They show their sinful arrogance and defiance of the government “for the people and by the people”. If you don’t like the benefits of this government you should pick another place to live but you won’t find stability there unless you submit to the tyranny of government. If you want the kind of freedom described by what we call the founding fathers then there is only one place left on earth that really comes close to representing it, USA. This government is for a peoples who were raised with virtue and values. People who should be thankful and humble because all peoples in and of themselves are not “righteous”, “NO NOT ONE”! And still you are not “forced” to comply with any law that says you will believe in the True and Living God, Jesus Christ. You can only be “born-again” by the Holy Spirit and the Word. We will all be praying for the people like Gerry Newberry, who apparently hates our Constitution and our government. Are we wrong in thinking that Gerry Newberry.

Amen, AspenDucky. Well said.
October 13, 2017,9:41 am
Everyone in our great country has opinions. Reasonable folks would expect that a clash of opinions would prompt more thought and passionate debate. As we see, even in this forum, is not much thought, nor debate, but empassioned ranting populated by vileness and hatred. And this audience is more likely to be a pool of allies and yet the insults fly like baby vomit. In the land of liberty our first job is protecting liberty and the means toleration. What I trust all of us teach our kids.
Don’t like NBC? Tell them what you dislike and why.
I dislike these forums because some users use them to verbally and smugly defecate in public.
America is better than that and that’s what I’m proudest of.
October 13, 2017,9:37 am
All News Stations come closer to the True Facts, while Fox News speaks with lies that only the STUPID believes !!!! Research puts Liberals, closer to the Truth while the RIGHT accepts anything Fox puts out there
October 13, 2017,6:53 am
Much as I hate them and the damage they cause, they have a costitutional right to speak. now civil liabilities and consumer boycotts are another matter entirely
October 12, 2017,10:45 pm
ALL bow down to Tsar Drumpf, his royal family and his regime!
October 12, 2017,10:39 pm
to pull the plug on NBC stop watching & boycott there sponsors products !! AMEN !!
October 12, 2017,10:36 pm
Where’s my comment?
October 12, 2017,10:27 pm
We live in America. The 1st amendment protects their right to free speech. We are not fascist, nazii, communist, Muslim , or any other intolerant group of people. Yes, there should be a limit on their “fake news” but, the President needs to go through the proper channels like everyone else. He’s not a dictator. Although, with the liberal SCOTUS and congress, it wouldn’t be a bad idea. He follow in Obama’s footsteps. Just in the opposite direction. Conservative, constitutional, GOD fearing and respectful of all people.
October 12, 2017,10:27 pm
The only cummunist in this room are all of the LIBERALS. They want us to be a communist country ask Russia how that is working.
October 12, 2017,10:23 pm
All tv news stations should be removed except FOX NEWS l’m tired of hearing distorted news and lies that the liberals promote.
October 12, 2017,10:15 pm
The answer is very simple: all of these “news media” outlets are CORPORATIONS, who owe their very existence to GOVERNMENT. What government creates, government can UNCREATE! Especially in this age of “information overload”, we no longer need freedom OF the press– we need freedom FROM the (lying) press!!!! NBC need not be the first “domino” to fall– whichever one is the first to fall, will hopefully put some FEAR into the rest of the LYING PRESS….
October 12, 2017,10:15 pm
Remove all the alphabet “news” channels
October 12, 2017,9:59 pm
Oh, and Bill! I suggest you stop talking. What are you, 19?
October 12, 2017,9:36 pm
The news media needs to held accountable. I propose a huge fine to any network who knowingly fabricates stories in order to undermine the President and/or his staff. Those monies could be used for paying down the national debt.
October 12, 2017,9:30 pm
Maybe we should all move to Russia or China where all news comes from the government. I thought conservatives wanted government out of the way. Have they changed their mind. Now they want to sensor the news.
October 12, 2017,9:26 pm
By the way,Bill,you are totally off base.The news media is ANYTHING but free.They are purveyors of propaganda.You may want to search a little deeper.Just hating President Trump and trashing him is a trap.People whose intellect has calcified ALL hate Trump.It is not only a trap,it is an EASY trap.
October 12, 2017,9:25 pm
The Deep State tells NBC how to lie to us.Get them off the air!
October 12, 2017,9:20 pm
Love the president on twitter truth comes out stop watching NBC news they cause chaos and hate freedom of speech yes..lies no
October 12, 2017,8:43 pm
The CBC comments (and poll votes) reflect a growing fascism in America. You people really have no sense of what makes America the unique country that it is. You would sacrifice the free press because you worship the evil fool named Donald J. Trump.
Strongly suggest you leave the country, travel, read, stay off of Faux News, away from Rash Limpbag and learn. It might not be too late for your soul.
Trump is a thin-skinned bully. Cannot take criticism, and claims it is false. A real President would simply say – the story is wrong. And leave it at that. But Trump, a flabby reality TV star and real-estate scammer, cannot act presidential.
A horrible man. If you live long enough, you will regret you supported this horrible man.
October 12, 2017,8:10 pm
I will not watch NBC news programs at all. One America News is an option for those who want to watch intelligent news coverage not just nationally, but also around the world without the outright lies and attacks against our duly elected president. I have never seen a worse character assasination than NBC news. It does not even feel like we are watching American news programming. This must STOP! Dittos to Sheila. Lucina
October 12, 2017,7:29 pm
All the globalist need to go! They’re trying to ruin our Country so they should go live in their little communist utopia somewhere else! And that goes for Google, Facebook, and all the other dictators that are shutting down free speech that doesn’t happen to agree with all their liberal thinking! They all act like a bunch of uncivilized thugs!
October 12, 2017,7:05 pm
The lying fake news, the slanted opinion pieces need to stop. The failure to report facts as the news is heinous twist of 1st ammendment freedom. Like abortion, open borders etc etc surely we can do better as a society.
October 12, 2017,6:54 pm
Fergus O’Reilly needs to get his head out of his ass and get a bloody real life!!!
October 12, 2017,6:48 pm
DO not watch them any more!!! Look what happened to nfl when we got tired of the players disrespect for our National anthem and Flag! We have choices. exercise them. The silent MAJORITY have a voice! Spend your hard earned $$$ where it counts.Not on something you disagree with,,
October 12, 2017,6:13 pm
TRump needs to develop a thicker skin, get his head out of his ass, and GET OFF TWITTER.
October 12, 2017,6:11 pm
ONLY A DUMBASS OBAMA LOVING LIBERAL WOULD SAY NO DON’T TAKE THEM OFF OF THE AIR.
October 12, 2017,5:46 pm

October 12, 2017,5:28 pm

October 12, 2017,5:00 pm
Reinstate FAIR media legislation to ensure all media is held to the same standards as it used to be before being repealed under Reagan
October 12, 2017,4:55 pm
Government Censorship, REALLY? Are we living in a Communist dictatorship?
October 12, 2017,4:48 pm
CNN the Clinton Network would be my first choice of lying all day long Really Fake News! But NBC is a good place to start draining the Media swamp!!
October 12, 2017,4:45 pm
Trump is the fake news
October 12, 2017,4:43 pm
If NBC is taken off the air, it should be done, by the will of the public not to watch it. No government entity should be involved.
It is a people’s decision. And I hate NBC!
October 12, 2017,4:42 pm

Journalism–First Amendment Responsibilities and Need For
Certification and Licensure
by Samuel A. Nigro, MD, copyright c 2016, retired,
“deplorable” ad hominem pamphleteer,
Clinical Professor Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
The First Amendment:
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.
“They will lie, sir, with such volubility that you would think truth were
a fool.” All’s Well…(the definition of “journalism” for sure–“How many people can you get to believe your bullshit so you can feel important?”)
“The real danger to the American system of government is a fraud press unavailable to the people and not loyal to the Founders’ Principles. Editors are enslavers of the press & media so it does not belong to the people. ”
Luigi Panzini, MD
The First Amendment was given to the people and not just to priests, ministers, or rabbis, nor just to broadcasters or celebrities, nor just to editors or journalists, nor just to assembly hall owners. The people have the right for their words to be prayed, broadcast, printed, and announced to assemblies, provided their words are logical, rational and consistent with the Founders’ Principles. The First Amendment makes those mentioned responsible to serve the people and to promulgate the words of the people and not just the words of the owners of communication methods. The goal of the First Amendment was to teach virtue and the Ten Commandments to the people so they could keep a civil society not needing laws. Those freed by the First Amendment have an absolute duty to be true to the Founders Principles as manifest by the first thing the new Congress ever purchased–20,000 Bibles (Will the “separation” people please be quiet and pray as the Founders did.).
The First Amendment was given first to keep the people informed with Truth, Oneness, Good and Beauty (the “transcendentals”), consistent with the hope and expectation that the people could be transcendent citizens not needing many laws or government controls. The Founders knew that if the citizens were “no good”, nothing would work well and law after law would be needed. The Founders hoped for the common good which in their mind basically was the Ten Commandments, which in those days were the themes espoused by all. The Judeo-Christian principles of the Founders was why religion was first in the First Amendment. The First Amendment was to promote good citizens living democratically by free religion, then free speech, then free press, and then free assembly. “Religion” was first because without some elements Judeo-Christianity, the people are no good and nothing will work well for a decent culture. The Founders knew, believed, lived and defined “religion” as overt or indirect belief in a Loving God, specifically naming “Nature and Nature’s God.” That is what they wanted by free exercise. Hoped for and expected was allegiance with Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness (“Happiness” is best understood as meaning “transcendentals”). This implied the “learned professions” providing directions for the common good: Medicine for Life. Law for Liberty. Divinity for Pursuit of Transcendentals (“nee “Happiness”). All three professions were given “transcendental” freedom (It was not “anything goes” pseudo-freedom).
Unfortunately, electronocelluloid technology has made the free press into a “disturbance of the common good” tyranny not available to the common man (although the World Wide Web may correct this when all journalism dies). The “free press” does not belong to the people but to editors and owners who only promulgate what “fits” as the New York Times exploiting logo documents. Today’s “free press” has no ethics, no morality, no values of transcendence, no standards or allegiance to Natural Law of the Founders, necessary for genuine civilization for citizens to be FREE from evil (“Evil” is the “creation of non-being”). Today’s “free press” does not know the difference between true “art” and “disturbing the peace” or “destroying the common good.” Journalism today is just manipulation and suggestibility, and not worth a dime. No way did the Founders want culture-destroying anti-Ten Commandments pollution to come from the First Amendment. The Founders listed “religion” first for good reason–the Ten Commandments–which have been replaced by Ten Thousand Legalisms. The Founders would have applied capital punishment to the editors and owners of the “free press” of today because of their culture-destroying advertising, dehumanizing promotions, anti-family and polluting pretenses of “art,” “entertainment,” and “information.” The Founders would not have allowed the Law’s destruction of the free and independent professions of Medicine and Divinity. The Founders would not have allowed the Law to become an “established religion” which it now is.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy: “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe and of the mystery of human life.” That is what the First Amendment is all about explicitly giving all citizens the right to express their “heart of liberty” (which, if it is genuine “freedom” or “liberty,” must be consistent with Natural Law –“Nature and Nature’s God” as mentioned in the Constitution, which means “transcendent–being, matter, identity, truth, oneness, good and beauty”). The First Amendment gives rights which also means “responsibilities” i.e., the “transcendentals.”
The results are protests and riots from the Losers (nee’ Womens) March to Berkeley–ALL raging rioting protestors NEED (from the press over and over) Octavio Paz’ “San Ildefonso nocturne”:
Good, we wanted good:
to set the world right.
We didn’t lack integrity:
we lacked humility.

its evil has covered the
AND JOURNALISTS NEED TO BE LICENSED WITH TRANSCENDENTAL ETHICS AFTER CERTIFICATION IN PRINCIPLES OF THE FOUNDERS–OTHERWISE IT IS “PATRONIZM” (1)…The “free press” cannot mean lies, sedition, treason, or ugliness by journalists. The “death” of journalism began with Roe v. Wade which not only destroyed journalism’s Ethics of Sigma Delta Chi, but the Hippocratic Oath of physicians replacing traditional social mores with abortionismo, manifest by destruction of childhood, loss of Judeo-Christian family norms, and lack of good faith interactions (2).
(1) “Patronizm”—Contemporary Journalism (From my article “The Results of
and Psychological Causes of Contraception,” Social Justice Review December 1993, 209-213… http://www.catholicculture.org/library/view.cfm?recnum=721 ):
Today, the practice (“charade” really) of journalism is the patronizing of one group or another and the censoring of the rest—thus “patronizm.” The most accurate description of today’s press and media is: Patronizm, not journalism. Patronpaper, not newspaper. Patron press, not free press. Patronizer, neither journalist nor reporter. For those described, the First Amendment does nothing but give them immunity to truth, justice, the common good and trustworthiness. Most of today’s “journalists” are self-promoting perverters of the First Amendment who have aborted those who gave them the First mendment. Do not trust what you see or hear in the press and media. Most is “pretend.” And, patronizm (nee’ journalism) does not believe in equality because the fraud press do NOT treat all with equal coverage or consideration.
(2) Moral authority is gone…the First Amendment people fail the Founders by not helping the people know Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness,the Ten Comandments, and Nature and Nature’s God—all mentioned many times by the Founders and the basis for deTocqueville’s bewilderment that the early Americans needed no laws for their righteous civility. Fascist lying editors instead have given the people abortion and all its subliminal spinoffs and results: ABORTIONISMO. The Fraud Press needs to look in the mirror to find what happened to “the people”. If the people are no good, nothing works well for very long. The Press and Media are run by dirty old men, dirty minded schoolboys never grown up, the gay cult genital maniacs, and haremfeminists manipulating the people into absence and suppression of virtue. Deny all you want. Rationalize all you want. America is dead. The Fraud Press killed it. The people act out and live “abortion” routinely. The Founders would have hung you all.
