New Poll: 43% of Republicans Want to Give Trump the Power to Shut Down Media

The old media, particularly CNN, MSNBC, Washpo and the New York Times really are ridiculous sometimes, sure.

CNN is basically a flat out propaganda wing these days. However, no president has the power to “shut down the media.”

Not in his power. Sorry. We have a 1st Amendment.

The Left in this country has gone over the edge on free speech. The Left seems to have forgotten that we have a Constitution. The GOP rank and file should not forget also. You guys are supposed to be better than the PC totalitarians.

Yes, the old media is crony. Yes, it is overwhelmingly corporate Left. Yes, it is unfair to its perceived enemies. But the 1st Amendment is the 1st Amendment. And thank God.

Freedom of the press may be guaranteed in the Constitution. But a plurality of Republicans want to give President Trump the authority to close down certain news outlets, according to a new public opinion survey conducted by Ipsosand provided exclusively to The Daily Beast.

The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased support for punitive measures against its members.

The fourth estate?” (Such a self aggrandizing term.) You’re/we’re the press. That’s it.
