The Daily Bell
Our president is way more than a bit unhappy with the major media. Most newspapers have been on his case since day one, peddling what he calls “fake news.”
This applies to the electronic media, too, almost without exception. They have attacked him every single day of his presidency, more than twice on Sundays. “Piling on” is forbidden in football, but not in the pressroom. The Donald could with some justice sing along to the tune of “Why’s everybody pickin’ on me?”
What can Mr. Trump do about this unceasing barrage of critical comment from these sources?
In some countries he could shut down the opposition press.
