Trump asks if reporters delivering 'fake' news deserve their credentials

April FrancisMay 11, 2018

Trump suggested that all "negative" reports should be classified as "fake" and the journalists who produce those reports should have their "credentials" revoked.

Trump has always had a rough relation with the media even when he was campaigning for the presidential election in 2016, dubbing it as fake and corrupt.

They published a new study about mainstream media coverage of Trump.

"The fact that I'm standing here taking question, the fact the president took questions from your colleagues just two hours ago, demonstrates this White House's commitment to accessibility and providing information to the American public", she scolded.

"The Media Research Center studied all broadcast evening news coverage of the President from January 1 through April 30, and found 90 percent of the evaluative comments about Trump were negative".

Asked if the president is concerned that organizations with business before the government sought access to his administration, Sanders said she hasn't "heard the president express any specific concerns about that".

At the time, a White House spokesperson said reporters still had access to information via the small group of reporters that covers the president's movements known as the pool.

Blankenship responded to Trump's tweet Monday morning by noting that, "The president is a very busy man and he does not know me". In one campaign video , Blankenship blames his incarceration on an "Obama judge" and "Obama prosecutors".

No, not "you're fired!" or "If Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her", but "Fake News".

Trump has also been seen encouraging violence against the media and last month, he skipped - for the second year in a row - the White House Correspondents Dinner to assert his hatred for the "fake news liberals".

He routinely attacks the news media as "dishonest" and brands critical media outlets and reports as "fake news".

President Frank-Walter Steinmeier welcomed the new United States diplomat to Germany, but business associations and European politicians lashed out.

CNN, NBC and CBS - in that order - aired the least positive news about the president, each of them registering in the single-digit percentages.
