Absolutely. Freedom of speech was never intended to mean that the media can be biased one way or the other. Break 'em up, diossolve 'em, lock 'em up if they resist.  There's more than one swamp that needs draining.

The press has always been biased, one way or the other.  The difference in the past was that both sides were represented and were very clear about which side they favored.

Exactly. The way that they're behaving now is totally unprecedented. I cannot wait for Trump to have Jake Tapper arrested for disrespecting the government and lying to the people.

This is the USA, not Russia, Venezuela or China, so what you're suggesting is not done for those reasons.

Jeez, kid, what's up witchoo?

Then why did the founders specifically lay out a section on Treason in the Constitution? IMO severely underused.

You go find me, specifically, the "section" of the Constitution that lays out the President's authority to arrest a Jake Tapper or any other news-person on the grounds of Treason for "disrespecting the government and lying to the people".

It's been found by the courts. Ever heard of the phrase "you can't yell FIRE in a crowded theater". No, that specific phrase isn't in the Constitution, it was written by Oliver Wendell Holmes in the case "Schenk Vs United States".

Here's the full quote: "The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic. The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a right to prevent."

Jake Tapper is and his lies are a clear and present danger to America. President Trump has called the media what it is, the "Enemy of the American People". He was setting the groundwork. When the time is right he will punish all of them.

No offense Lou22 but I doubt that it meets the threshold such that any prosecutor would take on the case. Especially when the remedy is so easy: just don't call on him.

Plus...show me where the Holmes Standard has ever been applied in recent times against the plethora of people screaming worse than "fire!" in a theater (hint - death threats on socialist media for example are legion!)...it may be the standard but progressive prosecutors are ignoring it and the rest are chickensh*ts.  So, legal precedents can and are being ignored.  But, any imagined triggering of proglodyte tribes gets headline treatment and calls for free speech to be applied in the manner of fascist and communist thugs. 

I've been trying to explain that corruption and treason this widespread and rampant has contaminated pretty much every institution in the land and most of the people populating them...and like the RINO/AINO cowards we've had to suffer under for too damn long who NEVER find a hill worth dying on...relying on the System to fix the System is DOA, it is the fantasy solution of the brain-dead.  The cancer must be physically removed, there is no other treatment option that will succeed.

I totally agree that the media swine have been let off the hook by dem-prog-GOPe leadership. That's why we elected Trump. To do things the others WOULDN'T DO.

Drain the swamp. The political swamp, the media swamp, the cultural swamp. All of it. And if you're saying "we can't do it because it hasn't been done before!" then buddy you haven't been paying attention to how this administration does business!

He's already threatening SNL with an FCC investigation if they choose to continue to lie and prop up anti-American propaganda. That's fair warning in my opinion. If the media straightens itself out then fine, if not, then it will be their own fault for not listening when Trump warned them to stop.
