    You seem to say that our people will be missing essential information if the news briefings are altered... personally, I think it has been rather unsuccessful in the past eight years in spectacular ways. I would not find it a stretch to believe that the reporters were handpicked and that even the questions were often reviewed before the conference. Pablum soft and misdirection. Which is one reason Trump resonates. He answers the question.

    You should be ashamed for putting that tweet about Trump and his daughter on the air. Would you like for someone to do that to you and your daughter? That was a terrible tweet by that stupid ignorant girl. Also a terrible thing for you to repeat.

    Interesting bringing up possibly not televising the White House news briefings. Might make a very good segment for your show to bring in folks who were there when it wasn't to compare and contrast. I personally think it's devolved into who can get a viral sound bite and/or ask the catch gotcha question and doesn't serve the public well. There's a reason SCOTUS won't ever let cameras in.

I don't want to hear about fake news until you go after CNN and others that promote "hands up, don't shoot" a big time lie that has gotten people killed and I hear no big deal about that from you or anyone else. The mainstream and CNN promote more fake news than anyone. You play the stooge way too often.

I think Trump completely understands the press and realizes tweeting and YouTube is a way to get his message out directly and unfiltered, sort of like the old fireside chats of FDR. Even the tweet about millions of illegal voters, many found so outrageous, may have been done to highlight the fact that in many states, getting driver's license automatically put you on the voter rolls. A system open for abuse.

I've been a big NFL fan for over 50 plus years (I'm 61). I'm boycotting watching even one game this season - and for however long it takes - until the overpaid do nothing commissioner sets a policy of total respect for the flag and the Star Spangled Banner. And enforces it. First Amendment my butt. Not on this one. The overpaid babies like the SF QB need to find another forum to whine about the nation that's made them multimillionaires and famous.

Using fake news stories to justify censorship is a very dangerous slippery slope. We have survived the National Enquirer et al and headlines that read "Barack Obama, kidnapped by aliens, is now pregnant" or some other such nonsense, not always so obvious. Some of us laugh, some are disgusted and believe it or not, there are probably a few who think it is true. Trust people, no censorship.

In his letter, he mentions that "it wasn't just Trump who won but the Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, sexists, racists and buffoons." I and all of my family whom I have spoken to, object to being stereotyped this way. Yes, I am a white man currently from the South, but I'm also a retired service member with two master's degrees... What Mr. Sorkin failed to realize when he stereotyped groups of people... is that his comments put him in the very same groups he so piously condemns.

I am absolutely disgusted with the way [the media] treat Donald Trump and are so unfair. Anything they can do to put him down they appear to do. I would like to know why people think that Hilary Clinton should get away with what she has done with the email scandal, and the apparent lack of respect for the law, doing just as she chooses and not as a law she should follow when Martha Stewart made a silly mistake and served time for doing so.

I am seriously is concerned how the media has evolved into being in the tank for especially the Dems, specifically for Hillary. Even as a Dem, I stopped watching NBC, MSNBC and CNN as they report only the news to make the Dems/Hillary look good, while they report on everything that makes the Republicans/Trump look bad... there are stories about Hillary, compliments of her drive to be the prez, no matter what the cost, that the media should report as well.

The guest on your program McKinnon is wrong. He said Republicans should know their place, i.e. being abused all the time, and should just take it. That is why Republicans being abused all the time. GOP should use its weight and let all people including media know that you do that again you would be punished to no end.
