We noted that when Trump first began his quest the press and media in general treated him as political theater boosting circulation and ratings. Then Trump began to win primaries and some in the 4th estate feared he might even have some successes.
Trump the entertainer became Trump the enemy. The press turned against everything Trump. When he won the Republican nomination the ire increased and every word and every move was twisted into a worst possible interpretation.
During the presidential campaign their hostility to Trump was severe and increasingly strident as the campaign wore on. It became abundantly clear that the “mainstream” media was nothing other than a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. Hillary went underground and watched as her press relentlessly blasted Trump.
They didn’t listen to what Trump said only the way he said it. His supporters listened to what he said but didn’t care how he said it. The media took him literally but not seriously. His supporters took him seriously but not literally.
They knew Hillary would win. How could Trump survive the onslaught.
Then to everyone’s surprise he won the election and the left became apoplectic. How could this happen, they asked? It’s not fair, everybody said Hillary would win.
And he kept tweeting to bypass the media’s progressive filter. Unforgivable.
Trump is not going to kick the press out of the White House but his team just considering such an action is enough to set them off. Actually everything sets them off. They have become hysterical. You will not find a single headline or article in the mainstream press that is pro-Trump.
Trump team considers evicting press from White House: report
FROM THE HILL: BY REBECCA SAVRANSKY – 01/15/17
President-elect Donald Trump’s team is reportedly considering evicting the press corps from the White House.
Instead, the press corps may work out of the White House Conference Center, near Lafayette Square, or in the Old Executive Office Building, next door to the White House, Esquire reported.
“There has been no decision,” said Sean Spicer, Trump’s incoming White House press secretary, adding “there has been some discussion about how to do it.”
Spicer questioned whether the current press area would have enough room for all of the reporters looking to cover the president-elect.
“There’s been so much interest in covering a President Donald Trump,” Spicer said.
“A question is: Is a room that has 49 seats adequate? When we had that press conference the other day, we had thousands of requests, and we capped it at 400 Is there an opportunity to potentially allow more members of the media to be part of this? That’s something we’re discussing.”
Another senior official, though, called the press the “opposition party.”
“I want ’em out of the building,” the senior official told Esquire. “We are taking back the press room.”
Trump often rails on the media, accusing reporters of dishonest and biased coverage against him.
During his press conference last week, the president-elect feuded with a CNN reporter and refused to let him ask a question. The exchange came after CNN reported a day earlier that intelligence officials had briefed Trump on an unverified dossier alleging the Russian government had compromising information on him.
