The President of the United States has been roundly attacked by the entirety of the mainstream media from the very moment that he stepped foot on the political stage just a few years ago.
You see, Donald Trump was a brash, boisterous, and unruly businessman who was a master of massaging his image, and the 24 hour news-cycle sycophants were entirely unprepared for the storm that was brewing. This is why a great deal of coverage of the 2016 election was dedicated to whether or not The Donald would continue to utilize Twitter while acting as the Commander in Chief; the leftist lurches in the media were terrified of the possibility that their every word would be rebutted in realtime, without their liberal filter, back out to the American people.
This is precisely what has occurred, as well, leaving legacy media outlets such as the New York Times without much of a leg to stand on when it comes to confronting the President.
Now, those dinosaurs of the news media are lashing out, claiming that the President’s exposure of their shortcomings is somehow unfair.
New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger confirmed a meeting with President Donald Trump, revealing on Sunday that he urged the president to stop calling the media “fake news.”
“I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people,’” he explained in a five-paragraph statement about his meeting with the president.
Trump revealed the meeting first on Twitter, noting that he had an “interesting” meeting with Sulzberger.
“Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, ‘Enemy of the People,’” he wrote. “Sad!”
Then the veteran newsman turned to scare tactics.
Sulzberger said he urged Trump to stop vocally attacking journalists, warning of threats and possible violence as a result.
“I warned that it was putting lives at risk, that it was undermining the democratic ideals of our nation, and that it was eroding one of our country’s greatest exports: a commitment to free speech and a free press,” he wrote.
Somehow missing the hypocrisy of the leftist media’s constant republishing of Trump assassination propaganda, Sulzberger’s complaints will likely fall on deaf ears in America, where the people have found themselves in the midst of a massive conservative awakening.
