And willful ignorance is a disgrace.

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s renewed attacks on the U.S. intelligence community this week, senior intelligence briefers are breaking two years of silence to warn that the President is endangering American security with what they say is a stubborn disregard for their assessments.

Citing multiple in-person episodes, these intelligence officials say Trump displays what one called “willful ignorance” when presented with analyses generated by America’s $81 billion-a-year intelligence services. The officials, who include analysts who prepare Trump’s briefs and the briefers themselves, describe futile attempts to keep his attention by using visual aids, confining some briefing points to two or three sentences, and repeating his name and title as frequently as possible.

Jr has something to say about an ad that recognizes reporters who were killed because of their work.

You know how MSM journalists could avoid having to spend millions on a #superbowl comercial to gain some undeserved credibility?

How about report the news and not their leftist BS for a change.

What on earth is "leftist" about the importance of unfettered journalism? Oh right - the Trumps don't like it.

I wonder how much of a role the GW/Cheney presidency had in undermining confidence in the press. What I can’t fathom is people embracing overt and incompetant lying that ends up undermining the office and any policy the deplorables are wanting from this prez, other than weakening the function of gov’t.
