Trump turned a news conference into an anti-media circus event like he is still entertaining his sycophants at campaign rallies.
Trump routinely made vague proposals to limit basic elements of press and internet freedom. His intent and disregard for the constitutional free press principle are clear.
The news media really has a very simple job; report the truth even if it is reporting the truth that a presidential candidate is a liar.
Reporting that doesn’t accurately reflect the huge honesty gap between the candidates misleads readers, giving them a distorted picture that favors the biggest liar.”
The truth is Romney, and not the media, is diverting attention from the disastrous PR failure of his fundraising tour.
But it’s two years later and finally, the press begins their push-back, albeit local press from Missoula, Montana (aka: Real America), who may be stunned to find themselves on the accused end of Palin’s ceaseless witch hunt against the dissemination of information. This is not the Real American Mama Grizzly they thought they knew. No, indeed, Dorothy. These are dark days.
