President Donald J. Trump posted a pair of tweets Friday night, the first regarding the new embassy in Jeruslaem and the second blasting the media.

Tweet 1: Big week next week when the American Embassy in Israel will be moved to Jerusalem. Congratulations to all!

Tweet 2: Why doesn’t the Fake News Media state that the Trump Administration’s Anti-Trust Division has been, and is, opposed to the AT&T purchase of Time Warner in a currently ongoing Trial. Such a disgrace in reporting!

The second tweet seems to be a reference to the media mania over AT&T’s connections to Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

As an example of the reporting, here is a portion of a current article from The Washington Post:  AT&T’s chief executive said Friday his company made a “serious misjudgment” to seek advice from President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, and announced that its top lobbying executive in Washington would be leaving the firm.

“Our company has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons these last few days and our reputation has been damaged,” AT&T chief executive Randall Stephenson wrote in a companywide internal email. “There is no other way to say it — AT&T hiring Michael Cohen as a political consultant was a big mistake.”

The email comes at a critical time for AT&T. A judge is deciding whether its controversial $85 billion merger with Time Warner violates antitrust law. Internal AT&T documents obtained by The Washington Post show how AT&T agreed to pay $600,000 to Cohen last year in exchange for guidance on policy matters, including issues it is facing at the Federal Communications Commission and its proposed deal with Time Warner.
