    As Bill/Selma pointed out in the other thread.....public opinion of the media is very very low right now.

    I appreciate the fact that our new president is reacting to this and trying to effect change in our behalf.
    trump is daily making a fool out of himself and is getting really angry that folks are pointing that out.
    this has been his m.o. for the past 35 years

    FIFY.

    He was completely fine with the "dishonest fake" media talking about Hillary's emails and sharing all the WikiLeaks stuff that he thought was the greatest thing since spray tan.

    You guys are missing the whole point of this thread.

    Now...more than ever....there are MORE media outlets in the room for the daily briefings.

    Don't you want MORE media in the room?

    If not...then just say so.

    Example: "I am NOT HAPPY that the president is allowing more media outlets in the press briefings. Why can't we leave things just as they were?"

    No, I'm saying the amount of Trump's kool-aid you've drunk seems unhealthy. And that's a broader observation, not one that solely responds to the quoted post.

    BTW one person was found to have leaked an (incredibly obvious) question and was promptly fired. If you think that was an appropriate response to her transgression, I'm not sure why you want the organization blackballed until the end of time.

    Nice strawman.

    More press isn't the issue. Giving dumb conspiracy theory peddlers front row seats and calling on them over actual journalists because the President can only hit softball, underhand pitches is the issue. Alex Jones does not deserve an equal pedestal to the New York Times. Having more of something doesn't mean it's higher quality or better.

    Who cares if there are more media outlets in the room when they're just looking for someone to believe their lies without questioning them?

    On a positive note, the press conferences are a lot more entertaining now!

    I didn't watch the Press Conference yesterday as I was on the road at the time but have caught up since. I can't believe that came after the huge softball that the reporter from the Jewish Magazine was attempting to throw him. If he had simply listened or understood the question he could have come out looking great on that one. Instead he came off looking even more like an anti-Semite, accusing the guy of lying and asking an unfair question. And then he asks for a friendly reporter, man that was bizarre
