Trump vs. the Press/Media


Recommended Posts

In the last few days, Conway has regularly misfired. It looks as if she is the odd person out on Trump's staff.

Time had an illustration a few weeks back showing where each staffer has their offices in the West Wing.  She is on second floor which would indicate she never was as "in" as the ones on the first floor.  Proximity to Trump equals power.

However Trump will use her as long as she does what she does best - alternative facts and deflection of questions to his/her talking points.

Kellyanne has sold her soul.

According to WA, Moanin' Joe has "blacklisted"  Conway.  Maybe that is one way to handle her.

Seems she also contacts producers to try to get on shows even though she is not "in the know" in the West Wing.

"At a press conference Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Trump continued his pattern of mostly only taking questions from journalists working for conservative news outlets....

 

CNN’s Jim Acosta attempted to ask Trump a question about Russia, but was ignored. Acosta could be heard saying “The fix is in” after the conference ended....

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith teed off on the president, calling his behavior “absolutely crazy” and urging the administration to give the American people the answers they deserve....

 

"...It’s crazy what we’re watching everyday. It’s absolutely crazy. [Trump] keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia, as if we’re some ind of fools for asking the question. Really?....

Even Fox News goes Rogue-- biting the hand that feeds it and killing the goose that laid the golden egg.

“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

 

"Authoritarians speak this way; elected leaders in democracies do not.

Trump isn’t just demonstrating a contempt for American journalism and First Amendment principles; he’s also playing a dangerous game by positioning himself as an authority figure who gets to label those who try to hold him accountable “the enemy.”

And ultimately, I think that’s what his unnerving assault against journalists and journalism is all about. Trump, after months of praise for the likes of Vladimir Putin and Saddam Hussein, sees the media as an enemy, not because news organizations are “liberal,” but because they stand in his way – checking his facts, shining a light on his actions, scrutinizing his agenda, and informing the electorate about the details of his presidency.

For Trump, that makes the media a terrible inconvenience. It’s exactly why Stephen Bannon recently called the New York Times to tell the newspaper, “I want you to quote this. The media here is the opposition party.” He added that American media should “keep its mouth shut.”

That’s not going to happen....

The manners in which Trump speaks of the media and treats them is proof of how stupid he really is.

It does keep his face and name on the TV screens and print media far more.

But, the media will just keep digging deeper, reporting more bad news, etc. and maybe get that 3 or 4 GOP senators to swing over to voting with the DEMS.

Maybe if he keeps it up, it will actually result in the DEMS taking control of the House and/or Senate in 2018 or 2020.

His disasterous approval rating is already at a dismal 38%, so maybe even his marginal supporters from 2016 will disappear from voting in 2018.

He really has led a sheltered life and does not understand the power of the media, especially when you have angered and insulted it.  After all, the media got him nominated and elected.

This sort of thing could only work with the paranoid- bigoted uneducated people who voted for Trump.

Sure.  As I recall he had NO problems with the media when they were busy touting him as the "wonder kid" real estate mogul and printing and reporting stories about his financial triumphs and marriages to attractive women.  He wouldn't hesitate to barge his way in front of ANY camera and have his pompous mug plastered on TV screens and newspapers nationwide.

 

I'm amused at all the reports of his going "back on the campaign trail" as it all being an attempt to "reconnect" with his "constituancy",  as if he ever STOPPED campaigning, ever since inauguration day.  He STILL blubbers on about what he's GIONG to do when asked to explain what he's just done.    Well, I guess we asked for it.....

 

We all WANTED transparency in government, and anyone who CAN'T see through this fool is living in a fog.

I now HAVE to ask.......

 

What does Trump's electoral college numbers have to do with ANTI SEMITISM?

 

When asked by a Jewish press reporter about his views on anti-Semitism in his administration Trump immediately started prattling about how many electoral college votes he won by.

 

???

In the end, it's all about HIM. Anything that may happen is subordinate to him winning and being president. That's all that matters. And he has to remind us of this over and over (with lies and fake tweets...)

James O’Keefe, Donald Trump, And The “CNN Leaks” Disinformation Attempt -

 

Sad!

 

"Self-described “guerilla journalist” James O’Keefe has spent months hyping his plans to take on mainstream media. Today, his launch of a laughably underwhelming “CNN Leaks” project shows that O’Keefe was so eager to validate President Donald Trump’s war on the mainstream media that he hyped a blockbuster revelation before he actually discovered one.....

 

...it’s certainly possible something embarrassing from the network will be uncovered in the hours of footage. But right now, there’s no there there. The real story of the “CNN Leaks” -- at least in terms of what O’Keefe deemed newsworthy in his press release -- is how explicitly the "overrated" release seems aimed to confirm Trump’s anti-CNN assertions....

 

The potentially ongoing anti-media mindmeld between Trump, O’Keefe, and other self-styled citizen journalists who follow them now includes O’Keefe’s newest offering (or, as the Drudge Report gleefully calls it, a "bounty"): a “citizen journalist” award of $10,000 to “anyone who comes forward with legally obtained materials exposing media malfeasance.”

 

There are hours of years-old CNN recordings that have yet to be reviewed by his followers, but based on the highlights, Trump is sure to love whatever they decide is there.

 

In fact, O’Keefe says the president already thinks the project is “so cool.”

WikiLeaks already exposed CNN and most other mainstream Media for the shills they are and the link between them and the maggot David Brock's bogus Media Matters.......of whom you're using ........to

make your....... point?

 

My question for James O'Keefe is - what more is there to prove after WikiLeaks?

The GOP has been doing the "liberal" media scam since Spiro

was around. This is just more of the same, taken up a few

notches. A habitual liar like Donny doesn't want the press

pointing out all his lies, so he tries to make them the subject

to divert attention from his own fake news. And I'm sure that

a lot of dopes will fall for it. They always have.
