    "Pete Hoekstra, US Ambassador to the Netherlands, repeatedly gets called out and stumped by Dutch reporters who demand answers on his claims about "no-go zones" and Dutch politicians getting set on fire"

    At 4:00 in the video, he is asked again if he will retract his lie or reveal what Dutch politician was set on fire in recent years and he just stood there dumbstruck before doing the same thing American politicians do which is just ignoring the "uncooperative" journalists. What is different from an American press conference is that after seeing he is refusing to answer the question, ALL the journalists started calling him out saying "Answer the questions. This is Netherlands, you HAVE to answer questions". The next journalist in line repeated that question rather than ask his own.


    Who is to blame for the journalism in the US? Is it the journalists? Do you think there are no journalists with balls in the US? Or is the one to blame yourself? Every time you watch Fox News, every time you watch Don Lemon inviting morons to scream at other morons, you support a medium that is blatantly supplying entertainment rather than journalism.

    Answer the questions.
    It is simple. Liberals own most of the MSM. They have changed reporting to a political tool. If a journalist reports facts they are fired.

    Yes, we know. "The media is the enemy of the people!" No opposing views allowed. The same philosophy argued by Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Donald Trump, and Kim Jong Il.

    MSM reporting should never be about "views". It should be about reporting facts. But you do demonstrate how they do it now.

    What motivates journalists from around the world to report "lies" about Trump?

    A Global Conspiracy?

    The Lizard People?

    Answer the question or admit you have no answer.
    The whole world agrees with your so called liberal press.
    Why is that?

    The media in the Netherlands are more left-wing than just about anything you have. CNN? Gung-ho jingoists, even if they're not as anti-poor and anti-science as Fox.

    And yet ours have fangs and balls, and yours do not. Fancy that.
