Because the "mainstream press" has been spreading lies about him continually since he won the R nomination. Twitter allows him to talk to the people directly, without the merchants of chaos in the way.

I think if you read my post again you will see i said exactly that.

Yeah, he can spread his own lies this way. That's why I created this thread. Glad you are finally on board tech!

The lying press! Anything that is said against me means that they are all liars! First step is to silence your detractors. It's amazing how he spread lies like wildfire (and the neos still believe Obama wasn't born here) but claims that the media is against him when something like that is done back to him. I can't believe how many people fall for his bull****.

Drain the swamp they say. Al the politicians are corrupt they say.

The only ones more corrupt than the politicians are the businessmen. Sigh

Businessmen are only looking out for the interests of their companies. They can have better success if they bribe politicians into granting them favors, so they do. In some cases, that's the only way to be successful, because if you don't, others will.

The refrigerant industry for instance. R-22 has been used for a long time. But, all the sudden the government passes regulations saying that all new AC systems must use refrigerant with A, B and C characteristics. Seemingly unrelated, company X has just developed a new refrigerant (R-410A), that meets that criteria, and has received a patent. They have thus cornered the refrigerant market (worth billions) for the foreseeable future, while other manufacturers are out of luck.

WikiLeaks is the publisher, not the source.

The Obama Administration has aggressively pursued informants from inside the FedGov. More so than all previous Administrations combined. What's interesting is that they would turn a blind eye to someone at the very top, such as Hilary.

And if you bother to go the FBI's website, you will see that there is plenty of proof of several felonies. She's been protected, because people like her are above the rest of us plebs.

And how many "informants" have been prosecuted for the leaked State Department cables?

As for Hillary, exactly what charges were brought against her? What was the indictment?

Ultimately the last Comey gig may have cost her the election. But, I know a thing or two about full text understanding, and any college grad student could easily have gone thru a hard drive or two of emails in a week. It's not like I didn't work on this kind of work 30 years ago as part of - lolz - government funded - research.

The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls. They are rigged just like before.

I can see that Trump has been continually attacked by the liberal media, mainly because they're so pissed that Hillary didn't win, but it seems there should be a more professional outlet to get information out. Why not more frequent press conferences where the questions attacking him would be ignored and only relevant question would be answered?

Holy ****. The president elect is not only calling out one news source as fake news, but is now tweeting links to another one that is blowing sunshine up his ass...

How can people not see that this is EXACTLY what a dictator does. Does it mean he IS a dictator? No, not yet. But he is sure as **** trying to act like one.

The basis of a responsible government is transparency and that can only be achieved through questioning. No government should ever be allowed to just present its information without an opportunity for the people to ask questions. That's what propaganda is and that's what dictatorships do.

After all the b.s. of the last administration I can't believe anyone thinks more government secrecy is a good thing. Now you're talking about effectively censoring the press because of political views.

Trump is going to have to get used to the idea that he isn't a CEO anymore. He can't fire the people who disagree with him. He's answerable to the people.

Why should he give them the opportunity to attack him if he doesn't need to?

Of course there are a few press outlets that have treated him at least reasonably fairly, e.g., Fox News and Breitbart, but most of the "mainstream media" have decided that he is the enemy, so I don't think it is unreasonable that he treat them the same way.

Lol, Fox News and Breitbart. Do you even see how biased you are? Like every thing that CNN or MSNBC is always unfair. It's funny, I had a talk with my mom and I had to get it across to her that it is almost utterly impossible for Trump to be wrong about absolutely everything. Maybe most things, likely many things, but not everything. It's people like her and you that continue to propagate false information, especially about the media. It's a failure in our society when we are more concerned about good coverage than proper coverage. "They weren't very nice to me". Stfu
