Is this how a professional news station president actually spends its time now?

Your table has been reversed, sir.

The fact that we have Donald Trump as president and have large news networks tracking down dumb reddit users makes me question my sanity.

 

Out of all the timelines we could've lived in, we fell into something you'd expect from The Onion.

Ugh, disgusting. First they criticize Trump for promoting violence, then they threaten to reveal this guy's identity, which is as good as promoting violence against him and his family from the extreme left.

Now that I will share a complete agreement upon.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Oh wow. He thinks I support Trump!

Well good luck buddy. You're a huge flesh of Irony.

So who are you yelling at? The MSM as you call them has been telling things as they are and it's not good enough for people, it never will be. Did they create the narrative that Trump is making crazy tweets and creating the circus that WH has made since this administration started? I mean, this news is worldwide. We are living in unusual times with an unusual and grossly inexperienced leader of the US. Of course there's going to be extra scrunity on what's happening here. 

Are you implying that being objective in delivering news is impossible?

Just wake me up when the Media actually starts being relatively accountable compared to the amount of bullshit they produce. Because evertime they get criticized they play the victim card.

no, Fox News/Breitbart/Infowars etc wouldn't have asked before dragging him out of anonymity

Infowars is a conspiracy theory site, more right leaning but not necessarily always right wing. They've gone on record for heavily criticising George Bush too. They're far more anti-Globalist than "right wing." Yeah I guess they could have done something like this, but they have far less credibility. Breitbart of course has their own agenda too but I highly doubt they'd stoop as low as to go after an innocent 15 year old boy for making a goofy wrestling gif, Fox news maybe, but all mainstream media is corrupt. 

CNN is done after this. Finished. Thank god.

I don't know why you're so optimistic, they're going to stick around for a long time.

Dude. Mind sharing your ban prevention perks here in VGC? You in cahoots with a mod? How come you don't get banned for this shit. :P

I got banned twice for the silliest thing regarding Xbox, but he won't get banned for his words *sigh*

Not reporting him though, cause mods will see it and decide what to do anyway.

And they most likely won't do anything, such is life.

I got banned for calling out VGC community for leaking Political topics in non-political threads. Reason for the ban is apparantly "Insulted the rest of VGC Community". Meanwhile radical comments from this guy is only deserving of a warning.

Mod logic.

These posts don't belong in this thread, we have the mod thread for a reason and next time you should post there first.

The comment has been dealt with.



CNN feeling thratened by a meme? Now there are dozens of them under the hashtag #CNNBlackmail on twitter.

I wonder how many of the people who criticized trump for 'promoting violence towards the media' with that tweet are going to also criticize CNN for now 'promoting violence' towards someone who made a gif.

Probably not many i'm guessing since all some people seem to care about is being against Trump no matter what despite how hypocritical it may be

What violence have they promoted exactly?

 

@underlined OR! We're talking about two completely different cases.



What an absolute circus.
Obviously, no one should go around extorting or blackmail any individual, but to hear a major news outlet doing it? That is just bizarre.



These legacy media companies need to just die and alternative media take over.
