Trump is attacking the arm of the media that is flat our lying and making stuff up as he should and it is not unprecedented for a president to do so,
Hell Lincoln signed an executive order to arrest journalist who printed fake news stories as they sought to divide the nation and bring it down. I
believe ANYONE (right or left) pumping "news" stories for the purpose of dividing the nation and trying to sow discourse should be arrested for
treason. Everyone is concerned about Russia, when it is our own media that is trying to dissolve this country. Remember the news has ONE job and that
is to report what happens all these news channels like Fox, MSNBC, CNN, et al barely give you the facts and they tell you what they want you to think.
Even local news usually has the little my take editorial at the end of it putting their spin or their take on it. We only need them to report what
happens and we can determine for ourselves what to do from there but the media thinks we are all too stupid and need them to tell us what to think. I
leave with a link to the Lincoln executive order I referenced.
And the text of said Executive Order:
Major-General John A. Drx,
Commanding at New York:
Whereas there has been wickedly and traitorously printed and published this morning in the New York World and New York Journal of Commerce, newspapers
printed and published in the city of New York, a false and spurious proclamation purporting to be signed by the President and to be countersigned by
the Secretary of State, which publication is of a treasonable nature, designed to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States and to the
rebels now at war against the Government and their aiders and abettors, you are therefore hereby commanded forthwith to arrest and imprison in any
fort or military prison in your command the editors, proprietors, and publishers of the aforesaid newspapers, and all such persons as, after public
notice has been given of the falsehood of said publication, print and publish the same with intent to give aid and comfort to the enemy; and you will
hold the persons so arrested in close custody until they can be brought to trial before a military commission for their offense. You will also take
possession by military force of the printing establishments of the New York World and Journal of Commerce, and hold the same until further orders, and
prohibit any further publication therefrom.
