Sen. Ben Sasse doubts Trump’s
commitment to First Amendment
after recent anti-media remarks

Washington Times, by Andrew Blake

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/12/2017 4:18:38 PM

President Trump’s recent comments about potentially revoking broadcasting licenses from network news outlets critical of his administration has prompted a member of his own party to question the commander-in-chief’s commitment to upholding the constitutionally protected right to free speech. “Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter,” Sen. Ben Sasse, Nebraska Republican, said in a statement Wednesday evening. “Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect and defend the First Amendment?” (Snip) Mr. Trump ignited a firestorm earlier Wednesday for suggesting federal regulators review NBC’s broadcasting license after the network reported

Comments:
Principled Republicans such as Ben Sasse (who has 2 extra letters in his surname) far prefer someone like the high-minded and collegial GWB, who let the lying left frame the narrative at every turn. After all, there´s lots of money to be made from the leftist vision of a diminished USA with ever-expanding levels of government control.

Freedom of the Press is just exercising the Freedom of Speech in print. ´The press´ is not some sacred cow given a special dispensation of rights superior to the rest of us - we all have the same rights - and one of those is Freedom of Speech. Being elected president did not deprive DJT of his right of free speech and the right to verbally counterpunch when he´s being ´lied-on´ by the holy and sacred ´press.´

He ought to tend to his work for the people of his State and as a Senator in the Federal Government.

He has never liked Donald Trump.

These Trump-haters are the go-to guys for the media. ...need a nasty statement on any topic in order to ridicule and belittle Mr. Trump? They know right where to go for the nastiest verbiage from Republicans, who cares about veracity?

When you use the phrase "critical of his administration" of course it is inappropriate to censor them. However, if you are worried about the press out and out lying, that is a different issue.

Station licenses are conditional on meeting the community interest which is a broad term which could require telling the truth.

NBC doesn´t have a license to revoke because it doesn´t broadcast. The stations that carry NBC are vulnerable.

But I wouldn´t expect a Senator to have any idea about which he speaks.

Ben, do you not understand the Constitution?
Freedom of the press is not license to lie or slander without consequence. Neither is it a guarantee of the issuance of a license to use public broadcast frequencies that are administered by agencies authorized by our elected representatives.

Why do they always forget the first part: "Congress shall make no law..."?

Anyway, until Trump actually does something, he´s just tweaking the press. They deserve it.

It´s always the Senators who are not up for election.

Sasse is one of those accidental senators, much like Patty Murray. He was president of a tiny college no one ever heard of, and the voters in Nebraska suffered a collective case of temporary insanity.
I do hope the little weasel is a one term mistake.

Trump may have been thinking of something like the old "fairness doctrine", which obliged broadcaster license holders to provide balance in discussion of controversial issues. The Supreme Court held it to be constitutional, but then the FCC rescinded the rule in the 1980´s because the proliferation of media outlets made it seem unnecessary. But I would think that it might be worth reconsidering, especially since "balance" is a much different animal than "censorship".

U.S. Border Patrol has been accused of causing the deaths of hundreds of migrants a year by destroying food and water supplies left for them in the brutal Arizona desert by humanitarian groups. On Wednesday, two humanitarian groups released a report, detailing how they´ve distributed more than 31,000 gallons of water along dangerous migrant paths in the Arizona desert between 2012 and 2015. In that time frame, they say volunteers have found these stashes of food and water destroyed 415 times - or about two times a week on average. ´Through statistical analysis, video evidence, and personal experience, our team has

Mayor de Blasio blindsided Manhattan’s “Billionaire’s Row” with a quietly announced plan to open a men’s homeless shelter in the former Park Savoy Hotel. The building at 158 W. 58th St. — which stands back-to-back against the city’s most expensive apartment building, One57 — is being converted into housing for 150 residents and is scheduled to open in March, the city’s Department of Homeless Services said Wednesday. Hizzoner’s plan — part of a program to create 90 new shelters across all five boroughs — was revealed last week in letters to local elected officials. “Are you kidding me?” said a resident

Deadly bacteria could be lurking in your dishwasher, new research reveals. The kitchen staple can contain everything from E.coli, which causes life-threatening food poisoning, to other pathogens linked to infections of the urinary tract, skin and inner heart lining, a Slovenian study found. Although usually harmless, these bacteria can be fatal in people with reduced immune systems, such as those undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplants. Bacteria and fungi are thought to enter dishwashers via the tap water that supplies them, as well as through contaminated food, the research adds. Researchers recommend people reduce their risk of infection by allowing

President Trump is employing techniques “popularized by Joseph Stalin” to demonize the press and his approach could do great harm to the nation in the long run, Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” the retiring Arizona Republican and outspoken critic of the president said he’s deeply troubled by how Mr. Trump attacks the media. “You can talk about crowd size, and this is pretty innocuous if there’s a falsehood. But when you reflexively refer to the press as the ‘enemy of the people’ or ‘fake news,’ that has real damage,” Mr. Flake said. “It

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world.
