Trump suggests revoking reporters' credentials for negative coverage

Posted May 10, 2018

"Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake)", the President tweeted.

Those numbers only take a look at ABC, CBS, and NBC, and thus do not include the positive press Trump receives from Fox.

On Wednesday afternoon, Acosta confirmed to CNN host Wolf Blitzer that the White House had not yet revoked his press credentials.

In the following three decades, three CBS managers had been made aware of the complaints, according to the Post investigation. Rose fired Harris and McNeal following last year's Post story, and CBS did not offer them new positions, the lawsuit said.

As former TIME Bureau Chief Michael Scherer pointed out on Twitter, the President's comments contrast with statements he gave in an interview in 2015, in which he said he would not pull press credentials from reporters who he felt were being unfair to him if elected.

Drudge's tweet came shortly after Trump's latest attack on the media. During the presidential campaign, Trump's campaign team temporarily barred some news outlets from his events. Talev went on to state that it is the responsibility of a free press to report on everything that is happening, whether good or bad, from the important to the mundane. "Presenting an honest portrait of elected leaders", read an article on Wednesday, "even - and especially - against their will is, of course, why the First Amendment to the Constitution cements the role of a free press".

But there was also a major tell in Trump's tweet.

During lunches with Harris, Rose would place "his hands on her thigh and [kiss] her cheek", the lawsuit alleges. Goldberg said he first reached out to CBS and Rose in February to make them aware of the potential claims.

Donald Trump has finally explained what one of his most famous phrases actually means.

Newsweek reports that Trump's tweet was referencing a study from the conservative Media Research Center finding that 91% of "evaluative" statements about Trump made on nightly newscasts from ABC, CBS, and NBC from June to August of a year ago were negative. He has generally viewed most news coverage as unfair and talked about taking retaliatory measures against journalists.

The morning radio host also said West was "reckless" for claiming that black leaders and icons such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr . were "too far in the past and not relatable".
