They just publish what he says and does. It is up to Trump to stop doing crazy unpresidential stuff like this if he wants "better" press (he certainly can't get more coverage in general):

What exactly has he done the is positive and noteworthy?

Doesn't matter, they more of a crass bully he is the more his supporters love him. If he killed an unarmed black man in the street his supporters would love him even more.the is no bad press for Donald. A true cult of personality.

Seeing as how Trump's supporters approve of the way Trump conducts himself, all stories about him are positive

Everything Donald does is positive. "That I can tell you." All you have to do is ask him, and he will tell you with lots of adjectives & adverbs. Ever notice how he overuses adjectives & adverbs?

Here is one of my favorites. My response to King Birther - ha ha ha ha ha ha.

They published his video saying he loves Hispanics while eating a taco bowl. Isn't that positive? The media had a news story about his benefit for veterans and that he actually gave to money to charity the day after they asked him about it? Isn't that positive?

How about this one?

Trump also drew criticism Sunday when he appeared to be unfamiliar with Russia’s actions regarding Ukraine and its 2014 annexation of Crimea.

“He’s not going into Ukraine, okay,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week” of Russian President Vladi­mir Putin. “He’s not gonna go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down.”

Trump then appeared to contradict himself when George Stephanopoulos, host of ABC’s “This Week,” responded that “he’s already there, isn’t he?”

“Okay, well, he’s there in a certain way,” Mr. Trump replied.

Or this one??

McCain: Trump defamed Khan, does not represent GOP

Washington (CNN) - Sen. John McCain accused Donald Trump of defaming Khizr Khan and argued the Republican presidential candidate does not represent the GOP.

"While our Party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us," McCain said in a statement Monday.

Trump's criticism of Khan after he spoke from the stage of the Democratic convention last week resurrected the billionaire developer's past comments accusing McCain of not being a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.

"I cannot emphasize enough how deeply I disagree with Mr. Trump's statement. I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers, or candidates," McCain, who has previously announced he supports Trump for president, said Monday.

In the very personal statement, McCain also paid homage to the Khan's son Humayun's sacrifice.

"I'd like to say to Mr. and Mrs. Khan: thank you for immigrating to America. We're a better country because of you. And you are certainly right; your son was the best of America, and the memory of his sacrifice will make us a better nation -- and he will never be forgotten."

That could be interpreted a couple of ways.

Anyway, he certainly cannot complain that the press is ignoring him. They report everything he says and does, which is exactly what we wants. A couple weeks ago he said all publicity is good publicity and I think he truly believes that. He's getting more exposure than Hillary and it isn't costing him a thing.

Here is a pro-Trump...op-ed from USA Today...the first is not so pro-Trump but have to post it because the second is in response...you can decide which you align more closely with...

quote:
Trump's indecent comments: Our view

Candidate's tactless response to Muslim family speaks volumes.

If 2016 were a normal political year, Republicans would be well positioned to recapture the White House.

After two terms of Democratic control, voters are primed for a change, and the incumbent party is vulnerable on the core issues. Prosperity? The economy continues to grow at an anemic rate, just 1.2% in the latest quarter, and the national debt has topped $19 trillion. Peace? Attacks conducted or inspired by the Islamic State are exacting an awful toll at home and abroad.

Moreover, most voters view Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as untrustworthy, and she has demonstrated appalling lapses in judgment, notably her extreme carelessness in handling classified data when she was secretary of State.

But this is not a typical year, and the Republicans have not nominated a typical candidate. Practically every day, and sometimes more than once a day, GOP nominee Donald Trump provides fresh evidence that he lacks the knowledge and temperament for the world’s most powerful job.

Republicans undoubtedly hoped that Trump, fresh off securing the nomination in Cleveland, would pivot toward a more presidential demeanor and a more positive, inclusive message for the general election.

Instead, he followed his remarkably dark convention speech (75 minutes that can be summarized as “be very afraid, and only I can save you”) with a renewed attack on vanquished GOP primary rival Ted Cruz and a series of irresponsible statements that stand out even by Trump standards.

First there was his open invitation last week for a hostile foreign power to meddle in the U.S. election. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” he said unsmilingly at a news conference, referring to supposedly personal emails that were deleted from Clinton’s private server.

Only after an uproar did Trump contend that he was just being sarcastic, which, even if true, would reflect an alarming lack of seriousness about cybersecurity and foreign interference in American politics.

Compounding the damage, in an interview aired Sunday on ABC’s This Week, Trump seemed generally unaware of the extent of Russia’s military incursions into Ukraine — and said he’d consider recognizing Vladimir Putin’s 2014 seizure of Crimea.

Trump managed to top this with his tactless response to the Muslim American father whose son, an Army captain, died 12 years ago in the Iraq war and who charged at the Democratic convention that Trump has “sacrificed nothing and no one” for his country.

In the ABC interview, Trump suggested that the Clinton campaign might have written Khizr Khan’s speech and that Khan’s wife “maybe wasn’t allowed to have anything to say.” (Khan says he wrote the speech himself, and his wife says the pain of her loss speaks volumes.)

Trump added that he had indeed sacrificed by working very hard and creating thousands of jobs — rich stuff from a man who previously derided Sen. John McCain’s war heroism and who avoided military service himself during the Vietnam War with four student deferments and a medical deferment because of a bone spur in one of his feet.

Trump rose to his party’s nomination with appeals to bigotry and a call for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” The more he opens his mouth, the more opportunity voters have to figure out what is going on. Perhaps it is only fitting that it took the family of a Muslim American hero to further expose the candidate’s lack of a sense of decency.

Response/Opposing View:

quote:
We all regret the Khan family’s loss: Opposing view
The issue that Mr. Trump is talking about is protecting the American homeland from national security risks and terrorists.

Excerpts of comments Sunday by Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, on NBC’s Meet the Press about the rebuke of Trump by the father of a fallen Muslim Army captain.

Mr. Trump of course feels sorry for what the Khan family has gone through, just frankly as he felt sorry for the victims that spoke before the Republican Convention who lost loved ones from illegal immigrant criminals coming in and being able to travel the country freely. That’s not the issue.

The issue here is not the Khan family ... The issue that Mr. Trump is talking about and which, really, frankly, I expect the media should be talking about, is protecting the American homeland from national security risks and terrorists.

That’s the point here. And Mr. Trump has said very clearly for months now, a policy that’s been ignored, which is that he believes that we need to have a temporary suspension to stop refugees from coming in from countries where terrorist activities are rampant or in a war. That’s the issue, not the Khan family loss, which we all regret, not the loss of many other American families, which we all regret.

The issue is how to protect the homeland. And the second part of the issue, which is being ignored, is the cause of these losses, because it forced our American military to go back into Iraq, to go into Syria, and that cause was the policies that were put together in January of 2009 by President (Obama) and (former) Secretary (of State Clinton) that caused ISIS to rise.

ISIS didn’t exist before 2009; they exist today. They are causing the problems that we’re facing.

Those are the two issues: Protecting the homeland and stopping the war and going after ISIS in a way that ends the terrorism. The losses of the Khan family and the other Americans who have lost — that’s a tragedy.

And the only way we’re going to stop it is to focus on the real issues, and that’s what Trump is doing. And frankly, what Secretary Clinton did in her speech on Thursday was totally ignoring it. She sees an America that is “Morning in America,” as she said.

It’s not morning in America. And if it’s midnight in America, like she accused Mr. (Trump) of, it’s the policies of Obama and Clinton that caused it to be midnight. Mr. Trump has neither position.

Had some morning TV shows on today. MSNBC Morning Joe was talking about the Khan story, the Russia in Ukraine (or are they not in Ukraine), Trump doesn't know what is going on there... the weekend Trump interview with George Stephanopoulos.

I turned on Fox and they were talking about "more heads are going to roll at the DNC over email hacking", Hillary's interview with Fox News Sunday, the weather.

None of the pertinent stories relating to Trump were being discussed on Fox. Just like the morning after Melania's speech I never saw any of controversy surrounding her speech discussed on Fox when it was all the other shows were talking about. Really the cable networks pick and choose what they want to talk about, all of them.

So is the fact that one mainstream media (Fox is mainstream, or no?) channel is not discussing the negative Trump stories, is that pro-Trump? I think it is.

Not mainstream? Like I said…whew. Glad that has been debunked. Thanks, Goob.

FOX News lies...again....

Wrong: Fox News anchor says networks covered Khizr Khan but skipped Patricia Smith

On Fox and Friends the week after the Democratic National Convention, Brian Kilmeade criticized a "double standard" in the media.

He accused major media networks of covering Khizr Khan’s remarks — accusing Republican nominee Donald Trump of not reading the Constitution — live, but not covering Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, live.

"Nobody covered those (Patricia Smith’s) remarks live but almost everybody covered Khan's, Mr. Khan's remarks live," Khan said.

That’s wrong. We looked through television programming from both events using a recording service that chronicles and time-stamps live television programming. Here’s what we found.

What aired

Smith’s speech, on the first night of the Republican National Convention July 18, 2016, began around 8:24 p.m. ET.

The speech was aired live by both CNN and MSNBC. It was not live on Fox News, coincidentally. Fox News went to commercial right before Smith took the stage and returned to a phone interview between Donald Trump and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.

Lou Dobbs Tonight on the Fox Business channel had footage of the speech, but no audio.

The broadcast networks, NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX, did not cover any convention programming before 10 p.m. ET.

Khan’s speech aired at 9:13 p.m. ET on July 28, 2016, from Philadelphia. Again, it was aired live by CNN and MSNBC but not Fox News.

Fox News was in a commercial when Khan began speaking. The cable network showed pictures of Khan speaking on the side but did not have audio. When Fox News returned from the break, it went to a press conference on ISIS by FBI director James Comey.

C-SPAN also covered both speeches live.

A Fox News spokeswoman did not respond to our request for comment.

Our ruling

Kilmeade said "nobody" aired Patricia Smith’s remarks live, but "almost everybody" covered Khan’s remarks live.

CNN, MSNBC and C-SPAN covered both speeches live. Coincidentally, Fox News — of which Kilmeade is an employee — covered neither live.

Point being: the speeches were covered the same. Kilmeade’s statement rates Pants on Fire.

Pretty much an all-out carpet bombing on the GOP nominee over the last 7 days by MSNBC, NBC, ABC CBS, Wash Post, NYT, LA Times, YAHOO, GOOGLE etc., etc., etc.


Day two-hundred and seventy-something and the no press conference streak continues with MSM providing cover to the democratic nominee.

I have never witnessed anything like this.

How much of this blame should be placed on the candidate himself? His statements over the last 2 weeks earned him all the publicity he loves to bask in? Even home base FOX has had to report at least of some of his shoveling. FOX = MSM?

I will agree with your statement, " I have never witnessed anything like this". I mean - when have we ever witnessed a candidate like Trump in our lifetimes? I would think the GOP might learn something from this, but it is the grassroots voters who love & adore the media whore. By being himself, Trump is the best thing that ever happed to HC in an election. He is the gift that keeps on giving.

No one has received more media attention than Trump and his own actions and words are driving the content. You, like the candidate, seem to want to blame the media, but you are a major party nominee for POTUS everything you say and do is going to get reported. And when you act bat **** crazy, that is going to be like catnip for the media no matter what side you are on.

So when Trump says something stupid the media should avoid reporting it? I'm a little confused here. Trump would never have been the GOP nominee had it not been for the MSM coverage. Not sure why you think the MSM should now all of a sudden not report on what Trump says. If Trump doesn't want something he says on the news, maybe he should keep his trap shut (like that could ever happen).
