It’s going to be a long four years…
The national media appears to be making it a mission to undermine and delegitimize President Donald Trump, with The New York Times only too happy to lead the charge.
There was nothing subtle about an attack piece in Sunday’s newspaper. In addition to celebrating Saturday’s feminist march against Trump’s presidency in Washington and other cities around the country, The Times excoriated Trump over remarks about the media and the turnout at his inauguration.
The blaring front page headline declared: “Slamming Media, Trump Advances Two Falsehoods.”
And if that wasn’t enough to get Trump’s ire, two subheadlines were included: “Bitter Attack in Speech” and “Claims on Crowd Size and C.I.A. Rift Are at Odds With Facts.”
The Times all but called the president a liar, something his predecessor never had to deal with.
“President Trump used his first full day in office on Saturday to unleash a remarkably bitter attack on the news media, falsely accusing journalists of both inventing a rift between him and intelligence agencies and deliberately understating the size of his inauguration crowd,” the opening paragraph reads.
The volley was likely in response to White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s first official press briefing Saturday night, where he ripped the media for what he felt was dishonest reporting about the Donald Trump administration’s opening days.
