Trump’s War on Journalism – Los Angeles Times – Los Angeles Times

Thursday, April 06, 2017

In Donald Trump’s America, the mere act of reporting news unflattering to the president is held up as evidence of bias. Journalists are slandered as “enemies of the people.” Facts that contradict Trump’s version of reality are dismissed as “fake news.” Reporters and their news organizations are “pathetic,” “very dishonest,” “failing,” and even, in one memorable turn of phrase, “a pile of garbage.” Trump is, of course, not the first…

Sean Spicer picked a fight with the wrong journalism outlet – A.V. Club

Tuesday, April 04, 2017
