    True. Libel is about the only thing that they can do that might bring real repercussions and that's a pretty high bar to meet..

    I used to agree that was always a good thing...an unfettered and free press the best guarantor of a continued democracy and "honest" "open" government. But now, the press has by and large become an integral part of an entire side of the government. Indivisible..a captured outlet..mouthpiece..

    Agree. Instead of letting it go, file libel and defamation charges against these lying douchnozzles. Hold them accountable. When anyone makes a threat of violence against our president, they need to be arrested and prosecuted, then punished. Bully their asses right back and uphold the law.

    We didn't used to tolerate death threats against our president, but now these ####ing animals are in rut and acting as ugly as they please - freaking government officials are emboldened to call for assassination. That crap needs to stop. I'm not sure why we're allowing this.
