Trump threatens freedom of the press

When an orange freak with raccoon eyes says fake news media is “the enemy of the American people,” it’s just the dumb stuff halfwits say. But when that freak is president of the US, then it becomes a threat to freedom of the press.

No matter what you think about the character of US media, journalism is essential to democracy & journalists all over the world are killed, disappeared, murdered trying to get the story. Unless you’re embedded with the military like those allowed into Syria, Iraq, & Afghanistan, then it’s one of the most dangerous occupations in the world, including in the US (witness Gary Webb & Michael Hastings).

When Trump goes after major media for criticizing him consider what he would do with free rein to go after bloggers who spare him no contempt.
