  1. There may be no direct causal link between trump's frankly evil "enemy of the people" shit, Yiannopoulos twice wishing for the gunning down of journalists and this horror, but the sentiment behind both is so dangerous. If America doesn't deal with this, it will disappear.

  2. no, the msm are bought and sold prostitutes for the deep state/corporate slave masters. get a clue sheeple.

  3. Having to say that journalists aren't the enemy is more validation for the monstrous cunt and his cabal of scumbags. When Prezidolt Fucktard says the media are enemies of the people, he is saying they're his enemies. The current president is in a universe of his own with a population of one. The sooner we stop tapdancing around and stop normalizing him, instead treating him as the subhuman scumbag he is, the quicker America can recover from the plummet.

  4. We are trashing our alliances disrupting the world economy and moving towards the brink of new world order. You don't mess with Vladimir Putin or Kim Jong-un or any other dictator. What they say you have to take as fact or you could be shot. Trump wants that power, that control, that respect.Wants it so bad. So secretly he/we will form new alliances and when shit goes down it will be too late. And all of the powers that be, no one will stand up to this turd President. Stuck in bureaucracy and the government cant see past their nose and pocket being lined they cant see what is going on. I'm sure the Army, National Guard, Police will bend over and do his biding and not for one second think of what they are really doing. There are lots of empty Wal-marts around to put us trouble makers. The USA is FUCK.

  5. Another gun loving white male who hates licensed media, along with others dotards in comment area; they all came out of closet after Trump elected.

  6. Trump and all of his fascist administration need to be removed. They are becoming more and more of a threat to our country and the world.

  7. Of course journalists are not the enemy of the people. FAKE NEWS are the enemy of the people and CNN are FAKE NEWS, not journalists. Trying to somehow tie trump to a crime where one person had grudge with a company is why we say CNN is FAKE NEWS and CNN SUX. FAKE NEWS CNN will always find a way to tie Trump to every bad thing that happens in the universe.

  8. Yeah, its an office. Around the world, most offices you just walk in. Because most countries make sure that people who get guns are not criminals or psychos.

    As opposed to hoping some good guy with a gun near by will kill anyone firing a weapon. Him-self becoming a possible target to other good guy with guys thinking he is a mass shooter.

    And cops. Of course US cops will shoot at anything, so anyone holding a gun is dead for sure. In fact holding a cell phone makes you a target for US cops.

  9. Hope this wakes CNN up. Stop dividing America with your biased hateful opinions. We love America! we love our neighbors! we love our history! You only love news, the worse the better.

  10. The Media is Not simply 'describing what's going on'. The Media in too many cases, is in a full fledged partisan, even propagandistic mode. And 'the Media' spends far more time pushing an agenda and interpreting 'what's going on' for us. We are in an Ideological War.

    Yes, the Media, depending upon which side of the 'war' we are on, the Media outlets pushing that which is contrary to our beliefs and allegiances, is indeed a powerful component in each Camp.

    The days of an unbiased or at least the pretence of an unbiased news reporting agency, are over. You're not integrity filled, above the fray and looking in, you're a powerful actor in the war.

  11. The fbi needs to check out that Milo Yiannopoulos he called 4 vigilantes to start killing journalists on sight he's a big Trump supporter and he needs kicked out of our country

  12. All large corporations, stores, schools, should have metal detectors. It's time, past time for schools, for schools should have been after sandy hook. some schools did, and a lot did not? Too many guns in hands of psychopaths like Trump! The POTUS has laid the platform, if you are crazy go ahead and I will pardon you.

  13. Sure seems to me every time you turn on cnn they are vilafiying police .now when someone turns on the media they can't call police fast enough to come and protect them. Maybe you reap what you sow

  14. I have no sympathy for the victims of the attack. If journalists would get their act together and ACT like they work for the people, shit like this wouldn't happen. Every time a journalist is shot, it's their own damn fault and it will continue to happen until they stop pushing anti American agendas.

  15. This isn't a right left issue. What no one is discussing is the hit piece a newspaper did on a severely mentaly I'll man- marginalizing him even further. It was incredibly stupid,irresponsible & unethical! This retribution culture that is pervasive right now in this country is a fucking problem! & this kind of bias partisan "journalism" isn't helping! The opposite is true! Buckle up everyone,it's getting uglier

  16. As I have said for years any single kind of death treat has to be viewed as real . People who posts death treats are dangerous and there is nothing but missed opportunity to prevent this crime . I had somebody posting a very serious death treat saying that he wanted to pour chlorine down my throat ! I reported it immediately as you have to and he is on an Interpol watch list right now and watched . So there is so much you can do just look at what Sweden 🇸🇪 did after there were racist death treats made in the thousands to one of their national football team players ! They completely leveled it and all treats were immediately handed over to Swedish police as they should be because if somebody say they want to kill you and your family and on top of that use grotesque racial vulgarities then that’s what they want to do and they need to be traced and possibly arrested . It’s incredible simple but in the US you REFUSE to do anything so this pattern of out of control violence and executions of civilians and others including small children will continue and will escalate because as I have said before else you would have stopped it a long time ago . Again if you are a non US citizen living or visiting the US check in with your embassy and stick to an elevated safety plan and understand that the US is the most dangerous country in the world

  17. Remember the MSNBC guy that said Trump voters are Nazis for opposing Illegal Aliens? Who's to blame for the violence against them?

  18. The president said the fake news..is the enemy..the dishonest media is the enemy…NOT ALL MEDIA..come on CNN! I get that..how come you so called journalist cant?

  19. TREASONOUS TREACHEROUS TRUMP, Mitch McConnel, Paul Ryan & CO-CONSPIRATORS COMMITTING JIHAD AGAINST THE USA/AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL TO REMOVE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC TO DICTATORSHIP. WE MUST ORGANIZE 50 MILLION+people MARCHES THIS LABOR DAY & EVERY MONTH THRU TO ELECTION. KGB PUTIN & TRUMPUTIN HAVE BEEN PLANNING TAKEOVER!!! 157 MASS KILLINGS SINCE JAN 2018!!! TRUMP=CHAOS=SATAN!!!!

  20. Chump: the press is the enemy of the people
    Milo: journalists should be gunned down right now
    NRA board member Ted Nugent: the media are like rabid coyotes who should be shot on sight

    It's only ONE side putting out this hateful, dangerous rhetoric. And they accept NO responsibility for what they say, and show NO signs of stopping it. Because they actually WANT this! They WANT anyone who challenges them on their hate to die.

  21. I don't know the motives of this shooter, but when you have a president telling people that the news media is the enemy of the people the results are disastrous. If the president continues with this agenda, we are in for terrible outcomes.

  22. I do not read that paper so no idea how they manage bias , But , CNN And MSNBC are Terror Organizations !

  23. oh, another white terrorist killing more innocent lives. well, thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers, thought and prayers, thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers.

  24. The attack wasn't political. It was personal. Apparently this crazy bastard had great animosity towards the company. He reportedly wanted to kill as many as he could.

  25. When you let personal beliefs and emotion rule your thought process and credit all others as being wrong despite facts. Typical.

  26. Yeah Journalists are the people… But journalists tend to be educated. In a country that hates intellectuals and people with education. USA is almost entirely right wing, white, uneducated motherfuckers and people with education tend to lean a bit to the left. Hence journalism becomes the "enemy" of right wingers and their heroes.

  27. I bet they redesign their open office after this. SMH Well into my 60s & I've watched America change from an open & free society to a lock down, metal detecting regime for schools, amusement parks, health clinics, etc. How very sad this all is.

  28. Assholorama is the only one calling them the enemy because they aren't reporting what he wants them to. Trump is walking and talking fake news. He's a liar and a con man. It's sad that the rest of us have to live with this for the time being.

    And for those that will tell me to leave: nope. I can trace my ancestry back four hundred years. I'm not going anywhere.

  29. I love how Maxine openly told everyone to go harass people and the Libtards supported her and now this happened and they blame it on Trump. The hypocrisy!

  30. CNN is disgusting! The shooter had been making threats for SEVEN years! Why are you doing this? I cant watch this trash anymore. No more CNN. TO FAR

  31. 1. Shooter has a grudge against the newspaper.
    2. t'rump says the media is the enemy.
    3. t'rump is open to pardoning his allies.
    4. Shooter doesn't commit suicide.

  32. Who needs ISIS if you have your own God-fearing good Christian NRA. Perhaps better for the world safety to impose a travel ban on those "good" Americans.

  33. CNN is: A.) Communist News Network
    B.) Cunt News Network
    C.) Clinton News Network
    D.) All of the above plus FAKE NEWS

  34. Nice to see former PBS News Hour and CBS correspondent Terence Smith again. As usual, Mr. Smith, you are cogent, thoughtful and articulate. Thank you for showing us your wisdom again. You have been missed. Your opinion is important. Thank you for sharing with us.

  35. Umm. odd tag line, as your enemy usually is a person…

    Also reporters are not, but most people in the news are not reporters anymore, they are opinion columnists.

    A reporter tells you the facts of a situation,

    MSM opinion columnists. including Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc. relay some of the "facts" then spin a narrative that usually will have nothing to do with the "facts" they provided.

  36. So a couple of hack journalist from a dumpy little paper are killed and they’re trying to turn that into an anti trump story? Lol. Shame shame CNN when you guys were caught pretending to be in Baghdad in the gulf war in the 90s but really using blue screen that was pretty sad. But in recent years you have topped that and that’s why you are fake news

  37. Trump is adopting a different strategy than Putin(killing press himself), he just keeps repeating that the press is the enemy, so his idiot supporters carry on his will to eliminate them

  38. I don't know these 5 victims but I am crying because I mourn the loss of human life due to a senseless act of violence!

  39. I think Trump is 100 percent responsible for what happened. I think he encouraged this action with his hateful talk about journalist.Because of him there will be more killings, but that is what he likes he likes this to take place. Trump is pissing into the wind with his mouth wide open. He will taste his own piss eventually. All his actions have consequences…he needs to grow up real fast!!!

  40. Wait, wasnt this about a vendetta between the shooter and his failed attempt to sue the paper for defamation???? WTF is CNN and this weirdo talking about?

  41. i bet the next major story from trump will be how we need to reinforce news rooms and not work on better gun control laws.

  42. IF YOU ONLY TOLD THE TRUTH, THEN YOU WOULDN'T BE THE ENEMY. THE LOW LIFE'S AT CNN CAN'T TELL THE TRUTH, THEN THEY ARE OUR ENEMY. SIMPLE.

  43. Real journalists don't pay their audience to listen to their propaganda. Stupidity is the enemy of the American people, CNN has that market cornered.

  44. The sobering reality, of 85 individuals owning as much as the entire poorer half of the human, global population combined, leads me to deduce, they're not emotionally "human". Whatever else the ruling elite may be, they're misanthropic, malignant narcissist, malthusian megalomaniacs, whose insatiable greed & utterly selfish lust for luxury & power, gets justified as a Darwinian Imperative & manifest destiny. They own the monetary system. They project guilt onto "losers", typical humans, who are denied their right to live free, thrive & cooperate, by their winner takes all reckoning. Humans are mammals, born naturally enthusiastic, curious & creative problem solvers, who could cheerfully follow their higher, empathic potential & noble ideals. But the ruling class are only interested in how ritualized heirarchy enslaves minds & harnesses amoral, dependent willingness, to blindly follow orders & do harm to others. Society is set up, to justify & excuse, the lowest common denominator of selfish opportunism, gloryfying ruthless exploitation, for the elite's exclusive benefit. Their hypocrisy is literally stunning. Our cognitive dissonance, between the superficial, manipulative lies, we're told, to placate us & the hideous realities we're confronted with, generates maximum cognitive dissonance. Most of the world's people are primally traumatized, from the moment we first recognize the unreconcilable dichotomy. We remain dissociated, in denial, with a powerful subconscious gatekeeper, preventing objective examination of a reality too horrifying to face.
    Most people live in a state of collective Stockholm Syndrome, defending & virtually worshipping their institutionalized captors & abusers & CNN.

  45. Ramos had a decades long running feud with the Gazette. It had nothing to do with Trump yet somehow through CNN conjuring Trump is responsible. This is the type of illogical rubbish that discredits CNN.

  46. "… on one side of an otherwise open newsroom that was totally vulnerable to a shooter. There was no security whatsoever."

    If only there was some sort of tool people could use to defend themselves in such a situation.

  47. Just like Tyrus said i like whining an Crying.> Just like Trump said they are very Sharp.
    Thats why he like Conflicts, to Solved iT.

  48. Coke used to have cocaine in it. trump likes coke. children drink coke…therefore trump wants to force cocaine on to children. cnn logic

  49. Just another carefully crafted shit show from CNN media predictive programming team 🤐
