Probably no president loves the press, but Trump's disregard for the First Amendment even outstrips Nixon's.


Trump Allies Target Journalists Over Coverage Deemed Hostile to White House
By Kenneth P. Vogel and Jeremy W. Peters

A loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to President Trump by publicizing damaging information about journalists.

Forget the boiler room intrigue and machinations.Trump should simply take a cue from GWB, and call them aholes--with a smile.

I was going to say "Crappy Jew Year," but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic. So… HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews.

Another one from the evening of Dec. 15, 2009, includes a photograph of a vehicle with what looks like a Menorah–culturally and religiously associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah–on the roof. Wright-Piersanti commented: “Who called the Jew-police?” Breitbart News has not been able to determine what Wright meant by “the Jew-police,” and the New York Times has not yet responded to requests for comment on this matter.

In case you're wondering, Tom Wright-Piersanti writes for the New York Times

In the case of a newspaper that systemically and fraudulently decided to cover the Trump administration's "racism" , yes this matters and should be exposed.

What a pathetic coward and a truly poor example of a president Trump is.

This is why people feel he is similar to Hitler. A truly self-confident honest US leader would not be encouraging such unAmerican juvenile behavior from the pitiful GOP. But Hitler would be proud.

Trump and his cabal are destroying the USA.

It’s getting scary. An armband denoting “Journalist” and a train ride to Trump’s version of Auschwitz. Torch light parades in the night as the devoted demand removal of the non compliant.

You quoted the NYtimes so you lost before the starting bell.

However, in the spirit of the topic, had I been president when Jim Acosta started his a hole routine in the white house press room, I'd have sicked security on him and he'd be eating through a straw for the rest of his life.
