    Apparently, Trump doesn't understand what freedom of the press means. Every time he gets his feelings hurt, he wants to restrict First Amendment rights.

    Calling media bias "illegal?" :l

    "The Trump administration is “taking a look” at whether Google and its search engine should be regulated by the government, Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s economic adviser, said Tuesday outside the White House.
    “We’ll let you know,” said Kudlow. “We’re taking a look at it.”

    Google search results for “Trump News” shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of...

    ....results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!

    He seems to be such a loser. Everything is rigged against him. Can’t imagine anyone would want to have this guy as as a coworker or friend. Cry, cry, cry. Blame, blame, blame. Can you imagine sitting in a blind with this president as he blames the gun, the shell, the wind, people talking distracting him, the need to relieve himself, the glare from the sun and so on for every miss of a bird. Oh and of course, the bird for not flying slower.

    First amendment works both ways fellas. If certain tech companies -- Twitter, Google, Facebook, YouTube, just to name a few -- are censoring searches / shadow banning conservatives, that is a problem. No?

    :doh

    No. What part of "freedom of speech" and "private business" do you not comprehend?

    LOL! Wow. So what you are saying is that you believe it is totally 100% OK that these tech companies push a certain political agenda, and censor any opposing views? And Trump is the Fascist? Interesting.

    So private companies should be able to do as they wish, unless it doesn’t fit well with the president or conservatives? Very very shallow thinking.

    Yes. It's called freedom. I suppose you'd rather have some bureaucrats deciding who can say what?
    BTW, conservative outlets are free to censor views, are they not? Or are you okay with any party in power censoring the opposition? Putin would be proud of you.
    Which other Constitutional amendments do you disagree with?

    I think it’s an interesting situation. If for example the media bans together to control as a whole what’s being pushed to the masses as a way to control the people...is that ok? That goes for both sides of the aisle. I guess it’s all on how you want to look at it.

    So shallow. Its so unreasonable to think that conservatives freedom of speech (on platforms such a Google, Youtbue, Facebook, etc) is less important than the freedom of speech for those companies. How about just freedom of speech for everyone -- and don't censor anyone.

    Nice spin though.
