I watched a discussion about whether them in TV should actually run Trump speeches live. There seems to be a growing consensus that they should not and, at the very least, all lies edited out of said speeches. I have no idea if such should come to pass but, for me, ITS ABOUT TIME!

That is Censorship.

The news just needs to do what they are doing now; airing the story, showing us the facts and pointing out the contradictions.

Or just not air any story which in and of itself is censorship.

I think it's fine to air Trump's speeches uncensored, but they should reserve the bottom quarter of the screen for a huge "LIE" legend they flash when he tells a whopper. After all, it is news that he said those things just like it's news that they were lies. The problem with analyzing the speech later for truthfulness is that his fans just shut off the set after he stops speaking. By not presenting the two streams concurrently they are failing to serve the public.

If indictments start flowing from the Mueller probe, a big if, I'm going to make a surprise prediction: Devin Nunes may be indicted as a conspirator. Consider his bizarre behavior at the start of the process, and his involvement in fund-raising for the inaugural committee. One of the potential charges is illegal foreign contributions, which he was in position to know about. What if he was trying to cover up his own participation?

TV networks charge for advertising, pure and simple. When jackass gives a speech its advertising, pure and simple. That being the case I don't think that can actually be called censorship. This would be especially true with lies as they sure as hell can't be construed as something that is of any real importance.

I do not, for instance, listen to anything Jackass says because it has nothing to do with anything but himself. Same holds true with Kellyanne and the the other spokesperson. Waste of time. I treat ads the same way. If any of them say anything that actually has content of interest its always addressed by the talking heads so why bother?

The problem with doing live truth checking is that errors might occur due to time constraints which is, I suspect, why we don't have something like that right now.

I think you are right about Nunes: He probably gets indicted as a participant in the conspiracy. Just because his parts in it failed spectacularly, doesn't make them any less criminal.
