Who Trump is Really Running Against – It Is Not Crooked Hillary
At a campaign event in Fairfield, Connecticut, Donald Trump made it clear who the real opponent is this election season – not “Crooked Hillary,” but rather, the biased mainstream media.
“Honestly, I’m not running against crooked Hillary Clinton, I’m running against the crooked media,” he announced to the Connecticut crowd. He is not wrong either — countless false stories about Donald Trump and articles twisting his words have been all over the Internet so far this election season, and it is the primary issue Trump feels his campaign faces.
Trump has threatened to revoke the New York Times’s press credentials at his rallies and press conferences if they continue their unfair and untrue reporting. He has already banned several other media outlets including The Huffington Post and BuzzFeed.
The Donald also took to social media, as he often does, to express his frustration over the media’s portrayal of him.
This really opens up the question of how far does freedom of the press really go. Does it allow the media to have a free for all and report everything as Gospel truth, even if it is false? Or does it have limits when no truth is being reported and opinions are presented as facts?
