President Trump the past few days as upped the volume on his warring rhetoric against mainstream media, particularly against CNN.
The released Project Veritas videos of producers admitting ratings lies, notable commentators admitting Russia fables, and employees downright shaming American voters have damaged the reputation of CNN considerably.
Most recently, the Associated Press was just forced to issue a major correction to a story on Trump and Russia that was misleading. Earlier in the week, CNN had to retract a similar story about Trump and the New York Times also had to correct itself on a story that has prompted a hefty pending lawsuit.
Over the weekend, Trump’s sit down meeting with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea was interrupted when a reporter rudely squared up too close to the presidential duo for a camera shot and then knocked over a table. The action prompted Trump to quip: “You guys are getting worse.”
With the media constantly in an endless tug to shame and ridicule Trump, before even verifying the facts and truthfulness of these stories, should Trump retaliate further than just calling them out on Twitter?
For instance, should Trump revoke their press credentials from the daily press briefings? Should he even continue to do the press briefings?
Trump has already taken steps on blocking media from notable events. However, excommunicating these media groups from the press briefings would really punch them where it hurts.
