Trump continues his dictator-like comments on the media. He can’t even take satire, let alone serious critiques. Sad!
This is right on the money. CNN and other networks helped Trump tremendously by giving him so much coverage. Schultz hasn’t even announced that he is a candidate. Give the town halls to the actual candidates.
Let’s look back. Jeff Zucker, now head of CNN, gave Trump a big boost by having The Apprentice on NBC. CNN gave Trump a ton of coverage in 2016.
“Ten years later, it was Zucker, now the head of CNN, who gave Trump astonishing amounts of free exposure in the Republican presidential primary on the cable network, continually blasting out his speeches and rallies — often unfiltered and without critical fact-checking.
“It’s a not-unfair knock on CNN to say that they went all in on Trump and helped him enormously,” Ken Lerer, co-founder of the Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, said in a recent onstage interview at City University of New York’s journalism school. “I think it was a strategy, a programming strategy.”

Trump is like the old Marx Brothers line:
I saw someone on Twitter refer to this – it’s like Trump saying are you going to believe him or the testimony that was on TV? The line from Duck Soup is usually attributed to Groucho but it’s Chico dressed up as Groucho.
Trump is such a liar!
Bad news for all of us
I despise Trump for many reasons but the top two are that he is a liar and a bigot.
Trump and his supporters will rightfully complain about the Buzzfeed story that said Trump told Cohen to lie. How is this different? It doesn’t have a lot of sources and they are anonymous.
