McCain: Media Suppression Is ‘How Dictators Get Started’

10

Sen. John McCain should take a day off, don’t you think?

The senior senator warned today that attempts to suppress the news media are “how dictators get started.” It was a not-so-veiled attack on President Donald Trump, who tweeted on Friday that the press are the “enemy of the American people.” On NBC’s Meet the Press, McCain said the country “needs” a free press. “If you want to preserve a democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press,” McCain said. “And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started.”

McCain added that he doesn’t believe Trump is attempting to start a dictatorship, but said “we need to learn the lessons of history.” Read more at NBC NEWS.

  1. He wouldn’t want the media that has ignored his participation in the Keating 5 to be supresed. Some of us still remember from the 1980’s.

  2. With all due respect to the senator, to compare Trump to the dictators is playing right into the hands of the media. McCain would be right if the media were balanced and impartial. But when this country has been suffering from the effects of a one-sided media for decades, we need Trump’s all-out war on those parts of the media to balance the playing field.

  4. As usual, McCain is not the sharpest pencil in the box: historically, the dictarships start not with suppression but collaboration with a fawning media. Just like the mainstream media and the DemocRats.

  5. “historically, the dictarships start not with suppression but collaboration with a fawning media.”
    Those are flipsides of the same coin (e.g.turkey,russia)

    • Did you understand the anonymous’ point? The point of the comment was that RINO McCain accuses Trump of the dictatorial tendencies, while completely ignoring the real offenders – the fascist socialist DemocRats.
