Trump is right: The press is the 'enemy of the people'

In the aftermath of the tragedies in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, President Donald Trump let fly with these 140 characters on Twitter: “Watching Sleepy Joe Biden making a speech. Sooo Boring! The LameStream Media will die in the ratings and clicks with this guy."

Remarkably, Trump seems to think more about ratings and clicks then about the welfare of the nation. Sadly, it seems to be working for him.

Apropos of his obsession with ratings, if there is one point Trump seems right about, it is his infamous declaration that the press is the “enemy of the people." After all, it was the press, and especially cable television, that, more than anything, helped elect the president who would carry on a fake war against “fake news.”
