1. I don't believe that they should attend any of the WH briefings

and the news organizations should pull out of the WH completely. Cover Congress, the various Departments and skip the WH. The poor dear would be lost without his megaphone.

4. Me too, have been saying that for over a year. But the response always is "that'll leave it all up

....the RW press like Fox News".

Doesn't really matter though, she isn't answering any questions anyway.

7. They would have even less credibility

if it turned into a Fox News circle jerk.

3. If the press had walked out on this asshole...

...at the start of his campaign, he wouldn't be in the Oval Office today. The press bears enormous responsibility for the outcome of the 2016 election. Not sole, but considerable. They legitimized his farce of a campaign.

"Oh, look. Trump is breathing."

8. So the idea of having a "Rotten Tomatoes" rating system for "news" sites

And even pressos such as the travesty that is now the WH briefings.

I think it's a great idea, but who would fact-check the rating system?

9. Like Yelp for news

Sounds like a good idea but I suspect the fox people work for Fox. The lefties with their left-leaning sources

10. I disagree. Yes, it's terrible most of the time, but it serves some function

in forcing them to lie and deny.. Trump would love nothing better than to do away with it altogether, if he thought he could get away with it.
