Donald Trump just had another press conference – and the mainstream media got slaughtered yet again.
They were already butthurt over yesterday’s joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because they completely ignored the mainstream media.
The only questions Trump answered were one from the Christian Broadcasting Network and another from Townhall. This is the third straight press conference where Trump has shut out mainstream outlets – leading CNN’s Jim Acosta (whose organization Trump branded as fake news) to declare that “the fix is in.”
Of course, it’s not that Trump is only taking questions from conservative outlets like the media is claiming. Townhall hasn’t been a pro-Trump publication by any stretch of the imagination, and the reporter in question who queried Trump, Katie Pavlich, was one of the 22 writers who contributed to National Review’s special “Against Trump” issue. The difference is that they’re just fair in their coverage of him.
Today there was another press conference, and it was even more bad news for Jim Acosta.
As 100 Percent Fed Up reported:
Jim Acosta from CNN asks one question after another of Trump. After Trump bashes the “HATRED and VENOM” he sees on CNN, Acosta presses for another question.
“We do have other people and your ratings aren’t as good as the others.” Trump tells Acosta, “I think you would do much better by being different. I’m not ranting and raving. I’m just telling you your dishonest people. I’m changing it from ‘fake news’ to ‘very fake news.’” Acosta asks if Trump if he is undermining news by calling it “fake news?” Trump replied, “I know what’s good and I know what’s bad, because I’m there. So it’s very important to me. I want to see an honest press. It’s very important to the public to get an honest press. If you were straight and really told it like it was, I would be your biggest fan if you treated me right, including negative stories about me. But when story after story about me is bad, I won! You’ve got to be a little bit fair. But when you take a look at some of your stories, and the bias and the hatred. The public is smart and they see it.”
“The whole Russian thing…it’s a ruse…”
Acosta got shut up pretty quickly. At this rate – the media is going to hope Trump DOESN’T call on them for questions.
