Posted on 11/21/2016 9:35:05 AM PST by COUNTrecount
Donald Trump is meeting with his harshest critics Monday and the people who arguably got him elected ... the media.
Sources in Trump's camp tell us ... he's meeting with all the network heads Monday at 1 PM ET, and Trump will not hold back. We're told he wants to talk to them about how they got it so wrong during the campaign. TV execs will show up today, and Tuesday he'll do the same with the NY Times execs and others.
Trump's end game for the meeting is unclear, but we're told crow will be served.

PLEASE!! Oh, Please!!
Can I be a fly on the wall at today’s and tomorrow’s meetings?
PLEASE Daddy, can I?
I hope he offers them a reset: “Traditional” deference to the media’s wishes will be based on their reformation.
I hope he says that he will deny them access to his administration if they continue their one sided reporting
I imagine the conversation will go something like this:
Media Exec: You want us to slavishly support absolutely anything you propose? That’s not going to happen.
Trump: Not at all. I want you to accurately report the news without editorializing in every news story against 100% of my ideas.
Media Exec: We will not be your slaves.
Trump: I’m not asking for that. I want you to be accurate.
Media Exec: We are not your lackeys.
Trump: Just report the truth.
Media Exec: You are unreasonable. I knew we should have pushed harder to get Hillary elected. This is a disaster for journalism.
He’s going to tell them that they can actually be objective and fair, or face a return of the Fairness Doctrine with equal time right of reply strictly enforced for rebuttal of their painfully slanted propaganda.
Maybe he will bring up the “fairness doctrine,” from his perspective...
Inform them that the RULE OF LAW now resides in America Again, and that includes the ANTI-TRUST LAWS to break up the big media conglomerates.
I like tho guy. Family jewels the size of basketballs.
Put the scumbags in the ENEMEDIA on notice that TRUMP IS GOING NUCLEAR!!
TRUMP must INSIST on nuclear option in SENATE For LEGISLATION and Appointments.
NO WAY will American people tolerate the DEMOCRAT COMMUNIST PARTY MINORITY stopping anything that needs to be done to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!.
Anything spoken by the media is subject to equal time.
Trump is the modern day Patton of American politics. The good general must be smiling at Trump’s bravado. As he said:
“Attack rapidly, ruthlessly, viciously, without rest...Keep punching.”
You might consider switching to decaf...
Start with “ F U A”, THEN go his terms or else...
I wonder what he is going to offer them?
I’d start the meeting like this
“You say we have a ‘fake news’ crisis now.
In 2004 we had a ‘fake but accurate’ group orgasm in the media.
... 10 minutes of videos, images, text of media loving ‘fake’ in 2004 ...
Do you want to move forward with ‘fake’ journalism and compete with kids in Macedonia? If not, how do we get back to ‘real journalism’.”
3. have a nice day.
WORKS FOR ME!!!
Victors throughout history have taken a particular pleasure in meeting and entertaining their vanquished opponents. Caesar met Vercongeterix the leader of Gaul who he defeated in a hard, bloody campaign, Sam Houston dined with Santa Ana, Grant was very courteous to Lee. Trump will truly enjoy meeting the TV hacks and the dopey editors of the Times.
