Trump's Maniacal Attack on the Free Press

On Friday, Trump -- in the wake of a remarkably rambling 77-minute press conference and bombshell revelations about the incoming administration's dealings with Russia -- took to Twitter to lash out at the media in generally and specifically at the New York Times, CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS, branding them as "enemies of the American people."

There are obvious problems with the news media, that have been discussed endlessly, but they are NOT the enemy of the people in the way Trump means. A free, open, vibrant press is critical to our general freedom.

My problems with the corporate press are:
1) they obviously censor and help up cover up cries perpetrated by the govt such as 9/11
2) they are too pro-corporate, too pro-government power, too capitalistic, too pro-war
3) they have a double standard in covering conservatives and liberals, favoring conservatives largely because of the reasons in #2 above.

So, Trump hasn't bothered to use his bully pulpit to expose any deep truths or uncover truths like 9/11 or even things like Sandy Hook. Trump is obviously pro-government power and pro-corporation and pro-war.  He's a Republican, who the press typically gives wide deference too. Thus, Trump's attack on the press has nothing to do with the clear problems of the press. His attack is really because of self-interest and because the press is critical of HIM. Trump also equates an attack on himself as an attack on the people of America, which is grotesque and self-serving. His whole attack on the media is frankly disgusting and is probably an attempt to forestall the really bad news that will come out sooner or later on his Russian dealings and probable treason.

Here's how JFK thought of the press. A REAL president of the people.

Clinton campaign had “private off the record get together” with the Chinese

“This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol,”
hold yalls horses, could this possibly be treason?
nah, it's only treason when republicans do it.

Congress may want to examine concrete evidence showing Russian President Vladimir Putin paying Hillary Clinton and John Podesta for a long time before the mainstream media goes even more overboard trying to fabricate a tie between Putin and President Donald Trump.

Russian Bank Docs Show How Putin Laundered Money To Hillary & Podesta

Witches and Pagans gone Loco! Casting Spells and Magick at President and Supporters during Waning Moon!

After the “Lunatic” casts his or her spell the “Lunatic” is supposed to set fire to an image of Donald Trump, chant, bark or howl at the moon as the photo turns to ashes.
i guess when all else fails, just set the witches loose on his punk-ass.
and you thought conservatives were stupid.
