Trump apparently is following Dictators 101 but since he can't take over the media, or shut it down, he is convincing his followers that the media is pure BS & against truth.

How did it benefit the left?
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

Yes... President Johnson's use of the White House Time Machine is well documented.

-----------------------------------------------
In 1949, the Mayflower Doctrine, which had forbidden editorializing on the radio since 1941, was repealed.

This made way for the Fairness Doctrine.

The 1949 FCC Commission Report served as the foundation for the Fairness Doctrine. It established two forms of regulation on broadcasters: to provide adequate coverage of public issues, and to ensure that coverage fairly represented opposing views.

The second rule required broadcasters to provide reply time to issue-oriented citizens. Broadcasters could therefore trigger Fairness Doctrine complaints without editorializing.


(Thanks stu for the loan of your highlighter.)

It's so ironic to hear this complaint, because suppression of free speech is in the warp an woof of the left wing.  They've repeatedly tried to enact the "Fairness Doctrine" to erase conservative media from radio.

I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all.
Equal time for us?
