Recently, Donald Trump argued that he wasn’t just running for President against Hillary Clinton, no… he is also being forced to run against the “crooked” mainstream media.
“I’m not running against Crooked Hillary. I’m running against the crooked media.”
If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn't put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%

While Trump has been taking a lot of flack for his comments (and his follow up about restraining free speech), one of his biggest supporters, Rudy Giuliani, was on Fox & Friends Monday to back the GOP nominee up.
“The reality is he is determined to win and his effort against the press is not for him; his effort against the press is fighting for the American people.
The reality is the press by being so one-sided and writing an article like that which is largely untrue and then putting three articles the day before anti-Trump on the front page. Imagine three articles on the front page of the Times, he is saying the American people are not getting the facts they’re entitled to; they’re not getting both sides of the story.”
(Here’s the New York Times story that Giuliani took exception to.)
