This is a very big deal and the only reason I happened to find out is because as I was browsing channels I just happened to stop at MSNBC and Kellyanne Conway was speaking. Her usual diarrhea of words non-stop usually puts me off and I change the channel but this time I heard Mark Halperin ask her something about a meeting with the news agencies blowing up. She shrugged off the question saying that whatever transpired was off the record, it was an excellent meeting with the top executives of the major networks and blah blah blah. So I went to the NY Post to read that article myself and thought holy crap, he's absolutely demonizing everyone in the news industry and television station, particularly CNN which is no surprise.
But the meeting was supposed to be a media summit, a collaborative effort. What it became was a scathing condemnation of the media and press by Donald Trump. He laid into them with ferocity calling them liars. As one source said "it was like a fucking firing squad". He sought to humiliate the best reporters in the business and that's exactly what he did. As we all have known, Donald Trump gets even he extracts his revenge.
So here's what I'm wondering. Will President Donald Trump have a press corps that will accompany him basically wherever he travels, and along with him as he meets officials and basically document for the country all his open negotiations? Or, will President Donald Trump hand-pick his own press corps which would primarily be comprised of those news agencies only sympathetic to furthering his agenda and not really providing unbiased news? That is frightening because although he's not legally breaking a Constitutional law by complying with the tradition of having an official 'press corps", how can we trust his hand-picked army of people that act like Fox News, walk like Fox news and talks the talk of Fox news? I'm not suggesting they'll be from Fox news but akin to those types of reporters who will only follow and report on his bullshit stuff and never the negative side of his idiotic monkey business. You all know well what it would mean if that's his plan.
I'll post the link again.
