We are all "The Press" today.
Everyone has a cell phone with a camera and video capabilities.
Freedom of the Press applies to everyone. Not just credentialed journalist.
Look how many public taken videos, make it onto the mainstream sources.

And the "credentialed" mainstream "journalists" (leftist propagandists) are threatened by this, and try to demonize anyone not in their little club. I trust the credibility of non credentialed bloggers much more than indoctrinated journalists. Just look at how many actual news stories the mainstream media OMITS and doesn't report. You can't find them as they don't fit their leftist agenda.

Trump brings it all on himself.

Everyday he spreads his own fake news. His twitter feed is one lie after another.

Then he doubles down in front of camera's.

Trump is an empty barrel who creates his own problems and can't get the USA out of the way.

Post one of his Twitter lies?
Everyone knows, twitter is for trolling.
Trump trolls the lunatic left daily.... "The Chosen One" Exposing who should be locked away in an Insane Asylum.

This whole thread is an oxymoron. Free press just means free from government censorship which by virtue of the 1st Amendment, is true for all media in the US. The fact that some media self-censor their content does not make them not-free since that censorship is a business decision not something forced by the government.

The very fact that we have media companies that print unflattering news about Trump is prima facie evidence that our press is indeed free. We should all be glad of that. In some banana republic the news would be shut down.

It is not a right to defame, slander, or libel.
The biggest Fake News Hoax.... Russia.
Refuse to report on the biggest scandal and conspiracy in US history. Spygate.

Russia was more than just fake news. Russia was a Democrat/Media/FBI failed COUP ATTEMPT to oust a legally elected sitting President. Thankfully it didn't work, but what accountability has their been? None.
