I said yesterday that we were going to have some great clips of Trump's recent press conference and today I deliver. Trump claims he wants a "fair" and "honest" media. Is that true or does he simply want a sympathetic and supportive media?
Our media has an important responsibility. The are another check again power. It's their job to help expose corruption and inform the citizenry of what's happening in their government. They should be skeptical and confrontational. The media and government are not friends. Their relationship SHOULD be strained. But has our media become so politicized that it can no longer fulfill it's role?
I happen to think the answer is yes, and no. I'll pull several clips from the Trump press conference to prove my point. The press is not perfect, in many cases they are incredibly biased but that doesn't mean every time the press challenges Washington its a political witch hunt.
Thanks for listening! Don't forget to Share!
