Since the election of Donald Trump the US news media has descended into an orgy of anti-Trump stupidity, culminating in a story by AP claiming Trump was running away from reporters when he took his family out to a restaurant for dinner. (Never mind that at the same restaurant was dining a reporter from another organization who wandered over and had a good chat with The Don.)
All of which leads me to suspect that the fools in the media are digging their own graves. Did they not learn from the election campaign and result that Donald Trump no longer needs them? I think their misbehaviour will not go unpunished.
I would not be the least bit surprised if president Trump does away completely with the traditional press conferences so beloved by Obama as he fed his favorite chooks. Gone will be the broad 'media accreditation' privilege so long enjoyed and abused by the Democrats' various media outlets.
I reckon President Trump may well invite individual friendly journalists for wide ranging interviews. I could foresee those being left out might include the NYT, LAT, WAPO, NPR, CNN, ABC, MNBC and one or two others. Those enjoying the confidence of a new president might include WSJ, Fox and Breitbart.
In this way, all the media will still have access to the news. The Clinton shills will no longer be able to control and create the narrative and will have to take copy from other media.
Well, that's what most of the media do anyway, just rerun stories written by someone else..
