So Trump calls for a special meeting of MSM people and decides to give them a piece of his mind !!

Apparently he told them of their bias against him during the whole pre-election coverage.

He especially *TOLD* Jeff Zucker that CNN is horrible !!

All this according to a "source" and confirmed by a 2nd "source".

Report: Donald Trump Unloads on Mainstream Media Bigwigs in Trump Tower Meeting

President-elect Donald Trump met with top reporters and anchors from mainstream media outlets at Trump Tower on Monday, where he reportedly admonished them for their biased coverage during the presidential race.

The meeting was reportedly “off the record,” but a source told the New York Post that the scene was reminiscent of a “firing squad.”

The New York Post reports:

President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post.

“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source.

“Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

If true, that is highly amusing. He does love screwing with the MSM so it's a believable story. :-)

So the President elect is trying to mess with freedom of speech.

If he doesn't like it, shouldn't he (to paraphrase a lot of people here) leave and go somewhere more to his taste?

Get ready for 4 years of the media being completely against Trump.

Bad move on his part

They've hardly been impartial to this point. They will be against him for four years regardless.

Freedom of speech ?....Really ?....Do you consider the main stream media to be informed and objective ?

The media are great liars i am not sure dressing them down for being liars has and will in any way curtail free speech...

Let me know when a law or policy damaging free speech is passed.

Yelling at a press pool is hardly a violation of the first amendment.

the media has been against Trump from the get go. They treated him like # during the election by all helping Hilary instead of being non-bias in their reporting. They then get butt hurt when he goes to dinner without them? Oh poor babies lol The MSM deserved this verbal firing squad if you ask me lol and they have 4 years of President Trump's scorn. They showed up to the meeting hoping to find out what kind of access they would have. What they got was something they desperately needed.

MSNBC will become the new mouthpiece.

And they as well as all of the MSM will be called out and heckled and hooted.

2016 has exposed the MSM beyond anything on record.

Which is exactly why no one should take anything the press report seriously. When they are attacked as they do to others it's about freedom of press....4 more years of msm serving their own personal agendas whilst bleating on about how we should allow them to lie

Good, the media is just a propaganda mouth piece for the Govt and big business special interests.

For both parties, it's become an echo chamber that just enforces confirmation bias. There is nothing balanced or impartial about any of the media outlets.

They should all be ashamed of what they've become. None have any credibility left, if they ever had it.

This is exactly my thoughts too........this is coming dangerously close to "report what I want you to report" Hes already got his Joseph Goebles......with the Brietbart network and Steve Bannon in his pocket and on his team......

Im not liking how this is lining up.......

No, Neff, he's not. All during the election the American people were told by especially CNN and MSNBC that Trump was losing and basically (I'm paraphrasing here) that you would be wasting a vote casting it for Trump because Trump is a racist, misogynist, sexual predating, assh0le SOB. I believe I would be a little upset with the main stream media if that had happened to me and I knew it wasn't true. So much for biased reporting...

Hope you are doing well, Neff!

My point is that republicans knocked Obama and the democrats for decrying Fox with similar allegations about censorship.

So get used to this. Just because a republican is in power doesn't mean that the past 8 years of pissing and moaning automatically gets forgotten.
