Here’s an excellent piece about how Trump’s aggression toward journalists is likely to backfire on him big time. Speaking for — and to — his fellow journalists, Jack Shafer writes:
“In his own way, Trump has set us free. Reporters must treat Inauguration Day as a kind of Liberation Day to explore news outside the usual Washington circles. He has been explicit in his disdain for the press and his dislike for press conferences, prickly to the nth degree about being challenged and known for his vindictive way with those who cross him. So, forget about the White House press room. It’s time to circle behind enemy lines.”
Great read, here.
