C-SPAN's Coverage of TFG Rally Sparks Widespread Criticism: 'A Rally Isn't News. It's Propaganda'

Former president Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, broadcasts live on C-SPAN, Saturday evening…and people are fighting mad about it.

Despite lack of a formal announcement of his candidacy, Trump and C-SPAN are promoting the Iowa event as “Campaign 2024,” prompting those on social media to aggressively question why the network would broadcast such an event, as it usually televises U.S. government proceedings in the House of Representatives and Senate.

“What campaign? Has he officially filed with FEC? If not, he is breaking federal law. Again. @cspan used to be respected. This is not news,” one Twitter user wrote.

That sentiment was repeatedly echoed.

It's time to organize some mass boycotts of their advertisers. They are not going to be able to help themselves, unless there is a severe disincentive to indulge in chasing the orange dragon again...

5. The mass media coverage of the fascists since Sedition Day is incredibly pro-fascist.

I don’t know how else to describe the consistent media negligence other than mass media sympathizing for fascist, seemingly well coordinated across the media spectrum.

Is it mainstream media anymore when it’s pro-fascist?

3. THIS is crazy!

Who makes the decision to allow c-span to cover this? Needs to be investigated.

4. Why the hell is C-SPAN showing a rally for a guy who tried to overthrow the government and never

honored a subpoena issues by the House or Senate? WT absolute F!

6. Incredible. It's like we all woke up in an episode of the twilight zone.

“And, with C-SPAN’s televising of today’s Iowa rally, it is being accused of taking part in the effort by Trump’s “2024 campaign” to dodge campaign finance law.”

That’s in addition to the media coverage…in addition there is Trump using PAC money, legally, to pay all his not for sure apolitical campaign event campaign event.

So as always, multiple layers of horror.

8. That makes me so angry

I have a twitter account, but I don't usually tweet. Not totally sure if I did it right to get to their attention.

Here is what I posted (used every single character, but said what I wanted to say. Feel free to copy)

@cspan Why are you airing a propaganda rally under the guise of Campaign 2024? Who is the declared candidate? No one. Propaganda/FEC violations to spread his Big Lie. How can I continue to admire c-span's broadcast ethic? Your hands will not be clean if there is a civil war.

12. I tweeted at them and told them i was holding a rally for myself today at 6PM

and I asked when I could expect their camera crew to arrive.

For some reason, no one answered.

I guess I am confused because I don't understand why CSPAN would cover a rally for one civilian/private citizen and not another???????

14. Time to shitcan C-Span's leadership.

We really need to go through all agencies and root out the fascists. That ugly orange shit is just a symptom of a much larger cancer on our society.

16. Shame on Iowa

I am so depressed about djt's rally in Iowa. I was born and raised in Iowa and I am so disappointed in that state for even letting the derelict campaign there. I always knew there were a lot of reps in Iowa but I don't understand how could they support such a loser having a rally there?

19. And is the GOP paying for these? Trump isn't, he's broke. Wish they wouldn't cover them.

DUmmies just butt hurt that President Trump is more popular than the current squatter in the White House
Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

A sentiment repeatedly echoed on twitter qualifies as widespread criticism--for crybaby leftists, that is.

Ratings.  And the other clown networks (CNNLOL and PMSNBC) manufacture reasons to cover President Trump.  Face it, he drives eyeballs.

Maybe Biden should actually appear in public and say something about how he intends to guide the country instead of repeatedly sending his staff to try to excuse his latest mistake.  It's tough to provide him media coverage when he hides from the media and only appears in carefully scripted events.

I've never considered C-SPAN to be "news", at least not in the traditional sense that "news" is defined. It usually shows a bunch of DC Committee meetings and other unnewsworthy, boring activity.

I would appreciate him taking a few unscripted questions or holding a spontaneous press conference rather than just turning his back on the media and America.  :banghead:
