The Washington Post's publisher accused the Biden DOJ of "unprecedented" assault on the media.
Fred Ryan described an "escalation" in attacks on the First Amendment since Trump left office.
The publisher of The Washington Post accused the US Department of Justice of an "unprecedented assault on American news organizations" under President Joe Biden.
Fred Ryan said that government action against media outlets had worsened since President Donald Trump left office, despite Biden officials taking a much less combative approach to the news media in public.
Ryan noted in an opinion article that Biden had criticized the Trump administration for using "extraordinary measures to obtain subpoenas to secretly seize records of reporters at three leading U.S. news organizations."

I think that Trump was very open and accessible to the Press. He drove their rating up and was very engaging.
But they hated his message.
Biden is better, in their opinion, because he isn’t Trump.
However, they are noticing that Biden is stomping all over the First Amendment. Something which Trump never did. I imagine the media will express “concern”, but nothing more.
There was more freedom of the press under President Trump than under any President in modern history.
Dementia Joe’s attitude to the press is about the same as Stalin’s.
Yes, I thought they were all in the tank for Biden.
This is an odd claim from the Washington Post because they’re not a news organization.
The comPost is Deep State’s propaganda rag if record.
It's more fitting to compare it to Mao's....or Kim Jung Un's.
Be careful what you wish for - you just might get it.
Join the club Compost. You reap what you sow.
His message is so anti American and so corrupt, no amount of media compliance is sufficient.
.....the only thing going on in the US now that I hate worse than Biden is ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, MSN, MSNBC, WAPO, NYT, LAT, Comcast (I’m sure there’s several more I forgot).
Indeed, I would literally, if I had a choice of permanently getting rid of the alphabets or keeping Biden another 3 years, I would get rid of the Alphabets!
I don’t consider the alphabets and their staffs PATRIOTS anymore and I believe they are just as much an enemy of America as the Chinese Communists Party. That Fred Ryan somehow thinks he runs a “NEWS” organization is laughable.
By a weird coincidence, the same thing was said about the Obama regime.
This is largely some posturing, a PR CYA. But as the tramp of the jackboots gets closer, we do know that
- The ComPost and its staff deserve the crackdown they've helped bring down on all of us
- we don't, and
- we can count on them to always side with the jackboots.
I wonder how many direct questions and answers Trump took from the media compared to how many Biden has taken.
Biden’s handlers are telling the Media his Deep State is the “Borg” and they will be assimilated or destroyed.
“...despite Biden officials taking a much less combative approach to the news media...”
It’s easy to be less combative when you take NO calls from the media what-so-ever.
Whores get slapped around by their pimps all the time. No big deal.
Fred Ryan was Reagan’s chief of staff after he left WH and is now chairman of the Reagan library. I suspect he is not long for the compost at this rate.
Us news organizations? Where are these places? They are well hidden assuming they exist.
Nice catch.........precisely why they want to silence us.......we always catch their dumb absurdities.
