After he won. And they certainly didn't print 120,000 copies and distribute them BEFORE the election.

The “news” entities in our nation have put themselves in a position where a concerningly large percentage of the nation no longer believes them, let alone trusts them.
Have never heard a sitting president call US citizens in the media and the Democrat party "enemies of the people" while praising thugs like Putin, MBS and Kim jong on the national stage.

It's 90% because he says and does a lot of negative things

The problem is they live in a right-wing echo chamber, and that they get so used to it that when they they hear something contradictory, it freaks them out and they scream out bias even though all they listen to is right-wing bias. It makes your head spin trying to figure their logic out.

Yeah, Donald Trump thinks "free press" means people like Hannity or Jones, who only spew rhetoric about how wonderful he is. He has already lost people like his one time fan, Laura Ingraham, and even his old standby, FOX has begun to wise up to who and what Donald Trump really is.

It must be very confusing for Trump........he thinks everyone should love him, that is what his mommy told him.

Yeah as Trump attacks the fake media - -he retweets every media guru that bows at his feet.

Hypocrisy in full mode.

What Trump and fans criticize are media pundits and journalists that don't seem to bow at Trump's feet.

That's not fake news -- that's a different interpretation of news.

I still have yet to see the thread where the news media -- hard news -- not the entertainment pundit shows, report FAKE stories.

WHY?

Because there isn't enough to support a thread like that.

There are very, very few media outlets that support Trump or even Republicans in general. A few on Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and a couple of other radio talk show hosts. That's it. The rest are just Propaganda Outlets for the Democrats.

The Media no longer hides its Far Left Bias, and have a habit of creating stories to fit that narrative. They have mostly lost all credibility to the point it is difficult to find straight NEWS.

More accurately: the media has destroyed the credibility of the free press

Personally I wouldn't mind if this show ran 24 hours a day right now. It needs to be seen. What happened in the past could happen again.
They didnít get rid of it, they took it over. It became an arm of the fascists, the same way our media has become an arm of the Democratic Party.

History doesn't repeat itself, but it certainly rhymes.
