Seriously Crazy Idea: Trump Proposes US State-Run News Agency

Trump is blasting CNN again today. OK, but his alleged "solution" is seriously crazy.

Here are some counter-Tweets that I agree with:

Wow. All the "news" Trump wants you to hear and nothing more. This is truly crazy.

Having a state run news agency does not prove greatness. It proves the opposite.

What's nuts is that THREE ALREADY EXIST: Voice of America, PBS, and NPR. Why can't he use those instead of inventing yet another new one? Is it because they're hopelessly infested with progressive termite damage? What makes him think his new one will escape that fate?

I have FIOS and they keep adding new news channels and they all seem to be right leaning. I agree CNN leans heavily to the left, but we already have enough channels to counter their viewpoint.

1984 and SkyNet gets a little closer every day...loved DARPA's Yuma synchronized killer drone test which can change targets on the fly and evaluated changing battlefield situations....can't wait to see how that is deployed during US protests in major cities

We already have state-sponsored propaganda networks: NPR and PBS.

He already has Lara Trump and Sarah Sanders. Trump is just trolling the news media. Democratic Congress would never fund it. Besides his FOX buddies already do this work
