Troll Level: Planetary Overlord:
Trump Reportedly Trashed Media ‘Liars’ in Meeting with Networks: ‘It Was Like a F*cking Firing Squad’
He's just giving us all a show, and we're loving it. Is there any Trump voter anywhere who is not happy to think that Martha Raddatz is choking up about Trump's ascension all over again?
The Times is catching on:
But after details of Mr. Trump’s hectoring leaked on Monday in The New York Post, it seemed the meeting was being used as a political prop, especially after Trump-friendly news outlets trumpeted the session as a take-no-prisoners move by a brave president-elect.
“Trump Slams Media Elite, Face to Face,” blared the Drudge Report. “Trump Eats Press,” wrote Breitbart News.
But let me volunteer to help out the Times, which is now committed to rooting out the spread of "fake news" on the internet. Where did they come up with this nugget, my emphasis?
Still, the encounter crystallized concerns that Mr. Trump, emboldened by his victory, may refuse to abide the traditional dynamic of a president and the journalists who cover him, a naturally adversarial relationship that is nevertheless based on some level of mutual trust.
By "traditional... naturally adversarial relationship" they must mean "pre-Obama".
