Fox is *supposed* to get trump rëelected???

Annie Deighnaugh

Since when is a broadcast network *supposed* to be a free campaign outlet for a candidate? Since when is the president supposed to tell the press what they're supposed to do?

.......all of the networks and cable news shows gave the reality star 2 billion (some say 5 billion) dollars worth of free time in 2016, why wouldn't he expect the same now.

He’s got his new pet network OAN, with pet mouthpiece Chanel Rion.

Trump is looking for all the help he can to be re-elected. Let's hope that the efforts of Fox News and OAN will not be enough this time around.

Fox has been spreading Trump's nonsense (and vice-versa) all along so I can see why he'd expect them to keep doing it

In Canada we have very strict rules on how the broadcasters handle paid and unpaid adverting including appearances. It's quite extensive but basically it is limited and must be balanced amongst the candidates.

I liked the way the Ford people were not only wearing masks but also practicing physical distancing. trump can't be bothered to do either.

The woman in the picture posted by how2girl has a look in her eyes and the expression of her mouth and the set of her shoulders that bespeaks fear as if she were a hostage and he was pressing a gun to her back. Or perhaps revulsion because of his hands creepily caressing her shoulders.

How to girl. Here is a article that goes with that picture.

Here is a article regarding the press conference soft (set up ahead of conference I'm sure) and Rion going on a trip to Ukraine with Rudy Giuliani.

"The president’s bizarre exchange with Rion left many watching reporters aghast, but was likely no surprise to Trump, who was seen embracing the OAN host at Mar-a-Lago earlier this month, an image she proudly shared on Instagram."

No surprise.

Ann - those rules are in place to ensure that all the parties get equal air time, and that the parties with the deepest pockets don't get to "buy" the media. Canada also has strict rules about political donations, again to keep big corporations and organizations from buying politicians. And it has tules about election expenditure as well. It's all about trying to keep a level playing field so that everyone, not just big business/union/political donor, gets a fair say in the political process.

Of course the US also has laws about campaign finance, but that didn't stop trump from ignoring them...just ask cohen about his unindicted co-conspirator.

I've often said I wish the US would adopt Canada's rules on campaign restrictions and funding of. The super PACS and big business involvement etc. has gotten out of control in the US.

Can't imagine why anyone concerned about free and fair elections would object to controls on how the media promotes various parties or politicians. Except of course if they view their "news" sources as extensions of their political ideology rather than fact based reporting, That's how it works in China and Russia not at all how I ever want it to work here.

They need to roll back the super PACs, there's no oversight, too much obfuscation of numbers and donors, its like shell in shell in shell companies.

If we're taking a look at media, let's notice which party the large majority of media supports in the U.S. Then, let's look at the deep state who decided it was okay to use completely unethical means to try to "unseat" a presidential win that totally surprised them. Then let's look at China. Then let's look at Dems.

Unfortunately there are many radical RW sites and blogs where people are getting their information. It isn’t just MSM anymore that can be blamed. We know a propaganda war is currently being wages by Russia and other countries to divide Americans and other Democratic governments. This isn’t happening just in US but in other countries too.
