Posted on 01/22/2017 5:07:25 PM PST by Innovative
For wary Washington journalists, it seemed only a matter of time before Donald J. Trumps presidency would lead to a high-tension standoff between his administration and the news media.
But on Day 1? The news media world found itself in a state of shock on Sunday, a day after Mr. Trump declared himself in a running war with the media and the presidents press secretary, Sean Spicer, used his first appearance on the White House podium to deliver a fiery jeremiad against the press.

Advice to media: Don’t Make Stuff Up.
Maybe if they did what they are supposed to do: report the news, instead of reporting their opinions and biases as news, there wouldn’t be a problem.
I am glafd to see Trump is taking them on, instead of letting them get away with their lies.
Millions of Americans have been saying for many, many years that the Number One Problem in America is the Big Lies Leftist Media.
Finally. Somebody heard us!
The bastards may run, but the Train will still catch ‘em
It’s all about their profits to the media.
The media makes more money off advertising to Trump haters than to normal people. So he’s trying to drive down their total audience so their rates are lower in total.
It is like, this administration seems to have completely gotten, what is wrong.
In every single way. They have nailed it.
This is an extremely good thing. Hooray. This conversation, and these things, are cathartic.
Really. Cannot say how truly great, this is to see.
How long, have we been subjected to extreme media bias? And now our President, is saying this.
The idiots called “Media” are nothing but air brushed lying whores, and I am glad they are getting what they so richly deserve......AND off topic....I didnt see MeaGyn at any of the Inugural Balls....Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww has the poor little thing lost favor in DC? (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA)
Since they were so insulted by his first one, Trump should not have another press conference for the first 100 days. He can put out his tweets and keep everyone informed as to all the exciting things that are getting done. And he can prove that we can do without the Leftist media any time he wishes. It’s their fault.
I guess not, when you're making stuff up you don't need no stinkin’ facts.
Just the fakes, just the fakes.
They will never get it until they are completely irrelevant. Even their brain dead low info crowd will soon be infected with the truth.
Early in Trump’s campaign, he tossed out the idea of stricter laws on media reportage on public figures essentially lowering the bar on libel. The idea got a lot of negative comments on this forum as being an attack on free speech and a bad Trump idea. European courts on the other hand take actionable libel seriously and therefore British tabloids and similar make sure they have the story straight about EU politicians before they publish scandalous stories. On this side of the pond, not so much.
It’s not the “news media”. It’s fake propaganda and America is waking up to this crap.
No more fake news and no more opinion couched as news,
You the right to your opinion but keep it on the opinion page.
Oh No!!! Not a full-blown jeremiad!! How will the media snowflakes possibly survive???
Here in flyover country, we’d call the encounter a “Come to Jesus moment” or “Telling them how the cow ate the cabbage”. Certainly not a list of woes or lamentations, the definition of “jeremiad.” Perhaps Spicer’s intent was the fake media would end up with their own jeremiad.
