    Trumps speaks the truth about the media:

    Trump tweets: The media is the 'enemy of the American people'

    President Trump blasted the media as "the enemy of the American people" in tweet Friday, calling out several outlets specifically.

    "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" he wrote.

    He had posted and then quickly deleted a slightly different version of the tweet just a few minutes earlier, which omitted ABC and CBS. He also included the word "SICK!" on the end of the original post.

    The tweet came a day after the president held an adversarial and lengthy news conference, in which he berated the media as "very fake news."

    Trump and chief White House strategist Steve Bannon have both referred to the media as the "opposition party."

    There is no real free mainstream press.The only real free press exists on non-mainstream websites. Trump is talking about mainstream media.

    Mainstrean press is corrupted by corporations and the deep state.

    So?
    The non-mainstream press is usually biased one way or another.

    Some interesting quotes for you, because the "free speech" and the "free press" are in essence deeply fascistic.

    "Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose"

    "Every age that has historical status is governed by aristocracies. Aristocracy with the meaning - the best are ruling. Peoples do never govern themselves. That lunacy was concocted by liberalism. Behind its people's sovereignty the slyest cheaters are hiding, who don't want to be recognized."

    "A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth"

    Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda.

    Mainstream or non-mainstream...Does it matter? The Founders made it clear that free speech is protected by placing it in the U.S. Constitution. It applies to everyone whether they are defined as "real" or not.

    American Presidents even in the 1700s and 1800s had to endure VERY salacious and sometimes unfair press stories. Trump is just a thin-skinned crybaby. If the stories are false, then the Administration like every other one in history should explain that the story is false and keep it moving instead of throwing a tantrum and giving us a tale of his election victory or telling us everything is running like a fine tuned machine after firing his NSA chief after 24 days.

    Trump wasn't opposing free speech or the freedom of the press though, he was just pointing out that the mainstream media is the enemy of the American people, which is actually true. The mainstream media (American or otherwise, but in this case it's the American one we're talking about) is hostile toward Trump, not because he's an evil man, but because he's pro-American. That and precisely that, is the reason why the mainstream media is an enemy of the American people.

    What has the mainstream media accomplished anyway, with its lies? Over the past 16 years, the American mainstream media has been totally submissive to Dubya and Obongo, played along with their lies, never seriously criticized them despite their invasions and wars and so on, and as soon as there's a new president who has a solid track record of opposing both George W. Bush and Obama, comes into office, the mainstream media goes into fierce attack mode against him.

    Do you seriously believe that the American mainstream media is pro-American? As far as I'm concerned it's clearly hostile toward the American people.

    It's no coincidence that dictators have a tendency of taking control over the free press, and Trump hasn't done that, if anything he has no control over the media, he's just pointing out out that they're hostile toward him and Americans in general.

    The mainstream media hasn't been telling the truth in decades if not longer. Here's a good clip explaining what's what:

    The Truth About Fake News:


    And what the hell:

    “Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media.” ― Chomsky

    ^^ Chomsky said this before Trump became president. Now all of a sudden, the American mainstream media isn't all that obedient. As long as the mainstream media keeps attacking president Trump, that means he's the good guy. It's a badge of honor for Trump that he's attacked by the mainstream media.

    And who says that un-mainstream media tells the truth?

    Wasn't Breitbart accused of having made up that story about 10 000 Muslims in Germany attacking German police with fireworks and shouting Allahu Akbar on New Year's Eve?

    And what about Fox News who said that all of Birmingham, England is muslim and that non-muslims can't enter Birmingham?

    Media is opinions, and especially so when the "journalists" are very passionate about their political orientation.

    Also, in 2017 it's very hard to cover things up or lie, when people are hooked to social media 24/7. News are created or spread through facebook and twitter.

    Easily-affordable and fast Internet is the best thing that happened truth-telling since Gutenberg invented the book printer.
