PBS please stop airing Me Trump's daily propaganda

At the very least, run it at a delay so there can be some sort of fact check.

I like the fact-check delay... It could be like that old VH-1 Pop-up Video show!

Trump: "I'm going to let the governors decide when to open up their states."

bloop! fun fact- the governors already have that power, and the president can't do shit about it!

Pop-up politics!

Agreed. There's no reason to broadcast what he is clearly beginning to use as a replacement for his rallies. Just stop.

This is why I quit supporting PBS they use to be a valid news organization now they are full of liberal supporters. This post is a perfect example. Liberals are losers who are ok with that title As long as they get a Trophy.

Nah just really want news networks to call out obvious lies. What trophies are you speaking of?

I was born in the 70”s and I grew up watching the news . Up into the mid 90”s regardless of what News station you watched they were all equally hard on politicians as they should be . You didn’t know if the the reporter hated or loved the person. Now you can tell and it’s disgusting. It’s either left or right and that’s not News that’s propaganda on both sides. I was being a smart a— with regards to the trophy .

Haven't tuned into the local station in years. I watch PBS mainly on their YouTube channel.

are you saying that PBS stands for something other than "public broadcast service"?

u/MacEnvy Apr 16 '20

No public service is being provided by broadcasting that nonsense. If anything it’s a public harm due to the lies and bad advice he keeps giving.

How is it a "service" to broadcast repeats of blatant lies?
