President Trump Dumps Even More Vitriol on Media

Coverage Type: 

President Donald Trump has ramped up his attacks on and threats aimed at the press. On Aug 18, President tweeted criticisms of The New York Times and the state of journalism in general: "The Failing New York Times, in one of the most devastating portrayals of bad journalism in history, got caught by a leaker that they are shifting  from their Phony Russian Collusion Narrative (the Mueller Report & his testimony were a total disaster), to a Racism Witch Hunt....'Journalism' has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke...But the public is aware! #CROOKEDJOURNALISM." He followed that up with the ominous-sounding tweet Aug 20: “The LameStream Media is far beyond Fake News, they are treading in very dangerous territory.”
