  • Attempts to Discredit Journalists

    More attacks on the freedom of the press by Trump 'allies.'

    'A loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to President Trump by publicizing damaging information about journalists.'

    'It is the latest step in a long-running effort by Mr. Trump and his allies to undercut the influence of legitimate news reporting. Four people familiar with the operation described how it works, asserting that it has compiled dossiers of potentially embarrassing social media posts and other public statements by hundreds of people who work at some of the country’s most prominent news organizations.'

    Trump need do nothing. The MSM has be losing credibility for decades..

    It is interesting to note that as you move Left politically the MSM is considered more reliable. That is, Leftists, Progressives, and Democrats believe far more in the MSM than Independents and Republicans.

        Trump's supporters are going against journalists who have reported negatively on Trump and his administration. If those doing the attacking are using legitimate sourcing I don't see a problem with it. However, what they are engaged in are ad hominem attacks against the journalists and their families, and that is monstrous. Supposedly, Junior is leading the 'effort' which fits the little weasel.
