Trump Continues to Wage War on the Accredited Media

As the accredited media continues to report bombshell after bombshell exposing Trump’s collaboration with Russia and obstruction of justice, his administration is becoming increasingly desperate to silence accredited journalists who refuse to back down from exposing the truth. In a desperate effort to divert attention away from his Russian ties, Trump has tried to make non-issues like illusory Islamic terrorism, the supposed re-invigoration of the US economy, and the smearing of Loretta Lynch, the headline stories. But no matter how many times he attempts to manipulate the headlines, the accredited media continues to steadfastly report on the issues that matter to Americans, like Russian hacking, Trump’s obstruction of justice and looming war with North Korea.

After failing to blackmail the media into covering non-issues that only serve his interests, Trump is now reverting to dirty tactics like putting CNN at the back of press conferences, and answering their questions last, if at all. He has even refused to give the accredited media press briefings, which is unprecedented in American history, as the accredited media has always had close access to the White House. But perhaps the most appalling act of bad will towards the media was his boycott of the White House correspondents dinner, which made hundreds of accredited journalists look and feel like fools, a complete repudiation of their accreditation! Trump chose to instead spend the day with his racist redneck supporters, who are most certainly NOT accredited.

Trump’s bullying, mocking and belittling of the accredited media is a clear violation of free speech. Banning the fake news media (Breitbart, Zerohedge, Infowars etc.) would be protecting free speech from disinformation, but banning the accredited media is another story. Trump needs to look up the difference between fake and accredited, and start treating respected, accredited journalists with the reverence that they deserve. Because until then, we are going to continue exposing his bigotry, incompetence and criminality. Well, actually we’ll continue reporting the same things regardless, but that doesn’t prevent us from getting outraged at his gall to question our authority!

Meanwhile, anonymous sources inside Syria are concerned that all the signs point towards Assad planning yet another chemical attack. These anonymous but Accredited sources are so sure this is about to happen that all the accredited media is covering this story right now.

Of course, there is no hard evidence yet but rest assured that this attack is likely to be imminent. It will almost certainly take place before people forget having read and seen the warnings about the probable attack, in time for the CIA to be able to say ‘we told you so’.

One of my best friends works as an extra for White Helmets and he says the staged chemical attacks are so routine now they don’t even bother to use a teleprompter because they know the lines so well.

I have not yet seen those anonymous sources’ information confirmed by more anonymous sources in the “intelligence community” and the 37 intelligence agencies that ALL agree that Russia hacked the election, so I am maintaining some healthy skepticism.

Did you notice that Trump used his power to cause 3 CNN reporters to resign over a Russia story? They must be getting VERY close to him now, so close that he’s feeling the heat and had to lash out against CNN and get those reporters to “resign.”

It’s totally clear to any progressive that the ONLY reason any CNN reporter would resign is not because their story was fucking fake, but because Trump pressured and threatened CNN. He’s a tyrant and literally the Next Hitler.

It’s not too late to seek psychiatric help. Those resources are still available.

I would suggest ritalin first, then hemlock if the ritalin doesn’t work.

Thank you MDB. You are doing an heroic service for the Accredited Media. If we don’t speak out about these Trumpian atrocities then soon the Accredited Media will have to go into hiding for fear for their very lives. The crimes against the AM are vast and soon it will be too dangerous to even say the word “Trump.” Next will be AM Gulags or concentration camps or worse.
