    So you're saying that if source is not willing to give a name the press should not report it even if they know the source and can get confirmation?

    I would be good with the press being held more accountable. Now someone can write a hit piece and there might be 10% truth and it destroys whoever's career. There is so much fake news out there at this point I dont believe any of it. I say make it felony if you are caught distorting the truth in a way that will harm the USA. There would be crickets. The press anymore is nothing more than a arm of the DNC.

    Not a chance, I am comparing Jesse's desire to punish the media who publishes anything he perceives as "fake news" that way.

    I have no problem but if they do not use the proper legal channels set in place I believe they should be prosecuted. If a crime was committed there is congress or an IG you can go to.

    I just want to be clear I'm talking the leakers not the media. In the case of leakers leaking classified information outside of proper procedures is a crime.
