It appears that our president-elect held a sit-down with members of the national media yesterday. They thought they were coming to talk about access to the new administration. They were wrong. Some say it was like standing before a firing squad.
The mainstream media is having trouble catching up with reality. They preen, they slant the news, they try to make a case for their preferred narrative. We've all seen this image that cropped up during the election.
Trump doesn't need the traditional media. Like millions of Americans he can turn to social media to get his message out. A little scripting, a little fore-thought, and he can put it up on YouTube. Like this.
Tell me again why Trump needs CBS, or NBC, or CNN, or any of the other traditional media? He doesn't need to give press conferences, he can take his message directly to the people.
