Trump Is Using DHS To Attack A Free Press

Donald Trump has, shall we say, a unique relationship with the media. His narcissistic, oversized ego demands their full and constant attention. Politically, he needs the press to be the stenographers of his constant lies and a foil for his outsider status. His constant description of the press as the “enemy of the people” not only shows his base he is fighting the Washington establishment but also provides cover to dismiss any unfortunate truths the media uncovers about him. Sadly, especially in 2016, many in the media found this to be a mutually beneficial relationship.
