“Trump’s War on the Media”
Trump’s war on the media is a major issue of the day and should be discussed with a lot more vigor than it is, the American Conservative’s Steve Sailer argued on Sunday.
The media should be treated like an occupying force.
“He’s basically telling the people, ‘If you don’t like it, don’t watch it,'” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”
It’s going go viral and become a national scandal. “
You can watch the coverage of what happened to the First Amendment.
It’s going go viral and become a national scandal.
He is the President of the United States and the media should respect that.” “
It is not in the public interest to have any public discussion about Trump.
He is the President of the United States and the media should respect that.”
Sailer added that the press has a responsibility to “have a balance” between “protecting freedom of expression” and protecting “the integrity of the institution.”
“And the only way we’re going to do that is by not telling lies,” he said.
“But you do have to know when to say, ‘Hey, I’m going to tell a story that’s going, ‘Well, the Trump Administration is trying to get in the way of that.
I’m not going to go into this.'”
The conservative news website’s host, Mark Levin, also defended the Trump-owned press.
“If I were Trump, I would not be on ABC News, because I don’t think they have the integrity to be in the business of reporting the news,” he told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, according to The Hill.
“And you know, the media has become a bunch of little little bullies who are trying to suppress what the American people want to hear.”
In an interview with the Washington Post, the conservative radio host suggested that “fake news” and “fake polls” were more accurate than the actual news.
“I think there’s some fake news going on, and there’s a lot of fake polls,” he added.
“Some people say that the polls don’t say much.
I think it’s a very important question to ask, ‘Are the polls saying the same thing as the real thing?’
And it’s not just a question of whether there’s fake news, but it’s also a question about whether there is a lack of integrity in the media.”
