    Why would anyone have any respect for the modern media? They are freaking hacks.

    What they cannot spin, they make up lies, instead.

    Wednesday's tweet was apparently provoked by news coverage of Trump's summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.




    "So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN," he wrote.


    "They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea.


    500 days ago they would have 'begged' for this deal -- looked like war would break out.

    Our Country's biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!"



    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman translated the tweet this way: "Someone is unhappy with headlines reflecting what happened instead of what he wants to say happened."


    MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked: "What deal? There is no deal with North Korea."
    Not only does he relish the fights, hes already won it

    Most recent fake news-Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the whitehouse, she immediately called BS on that.

    What they meant to print was the WISH she would leave because just like Trump she spanks the $#@! out of them daily

    We are currently afflicted with that.
    I would add that the press is here to keep power in check. They are doing a good job of that as well.

    Sure, a lot of it was and he was masterful in his handling of it. That's a big part of the reason for his election IMO.

    The modern media is one of the only businesses I can think of which is openly hostile to their customers. They conduct their business with no respect for their customers. If their customer base criticizes them in any way, the media calls those customers ignorant, stupid and un-American.

    How has the media earned any respect from anyone? There are random individuals who have earned various degrees of respect, but as an institution they are untrustworthy and deserve little to no respect.
