in the vicinity ofthe video Howard Kurtz: From Russia probe of the Covington children, new control for the journalism
‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz weighs in on President Trump’s combative relationship with the new media.
President Trump lashed out at The New York Times and the Washington Post of yesterday, dusting off his “enemy” rhetoric, which of a seemingly endless war with his two most aggressive newspaper opponents.
The two situations could not be more different.
In his broadside against a long report on the Russia-investigation, the President of a General indictment, but as specific denials chose, and said, one thing that turns out not to be true.
In the celebration of a Covington high school student, the $250 million suit against the Post, trump the seizure on the paper, the first reporting on the clash at the Lincoln Memorial last month, was severely flawed. But that doesn ‘ T add up to a successful lawsuit.
The President pulls no punches against his hometown paper, although recently the granting of the editor and two reporters, an 85-minute interview:
The “New York Times” is reporting incorrectly. You are a true ENEMY of THE PEOPLE!”

I should say from the start that Trump has every right to hit back, how unfair the reporting — against what he sees, however, that such rhetoric is what is going on traitorous behavior.
In a second tweet clearly inspired by the time in history, the President, says: “The press has never been more dishonest than it is today. Stories are posted that have absolutely no basis in fact. The writers don’t even call to ask for a confirmation.”
But Maggie Haberman, of the history of the four co-authors, said on CNN, they went on the planned story in detail with the White house and the justice Department:
“I sent several E-Mails remained unanswered, until yesterday. We went through a detailed list of what we were doing, on the reporting. You decided not to get involved, and then the President surprised.”

In response to Trump-charging, publisher A. G. Sulzberger, said that “in the demonization of the free press as an enemy, to ask only for the fulfillment of their role, the tough questions and brings uncomfortable information to light, President Trump is the withdrawal of a specifically American principle … The expression ‘enemy of the people’ is not only wrong, it is dangerous.”
In the story, say that Trump asked to intervene, Acting Attorney General, Matt Whitaker, in the New York investigation is focusing on topics such as Michael Cohen and hush money. (This is separate from the trial of Bob Mueller, who was yesterday reported, said Trump’s lawyers he has completed his report.)

The Times also said, to announce that, as part of his effort to dislodge you, then-attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump Corey Lewandowski pressure asked sessions. Neither Whitaker nor Lewandowski seems to have done nothing. And the piece describes Trump changes his instructions to Sean Spicer, to describe how Mike Flynn was forced out of the White house.
While Trump castigating the times that I have no specific denials, the challenge, what the paper reported.
Meanwhile, Nick Sandman, Covington teenager was unfair of the media mob, has filed a lawsuit against the Post, accusing the paper of bullying him for political reasons.
Quote from the lawsuit, Trump tweeted: “‘The” Washington Post “ignored basic journalistic standards, because he wanted to’ in front of his well-known and easily biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump documented. Covington student sued WAPO. You Get Nick. Fake News!”
The suit, brought by a lawyer Lin Wood: “In a span of three days in January of this year, starting on January 19, the Post is engaged in a modern form of McCarthyism, claiming in competition with CNN and NBC, among others, to the leadership of mainstream and social-media-a mob of bullies who attacked, vilified, threatened, and Nicholas Sandman, an innocent middle school child.”
During the first reporting by the Post and another was seriously flawed, the charges as “McCarthyism” are away from the base.
In the first few days, the Post relied too much on a video edited, that was misleading, and an interview with Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist Sandman faced, and who said things that were untrue and gave his story. Such media accounts a social media explosion, the crucified unjustly, these Catholic children, some of them MAGA caps to wear. have, shake up, But that doesn’t necessarily mean a courtroom victory.
It is highly regrettable that the paper was not in the position, an interview with one of the students. But as always your page that the students of the school and the diocese said in a joint statement that “we condemn” their behavior, and warned that some may be driven away. The diocese later apologized.
Even if a majority of the Post’s coverage of Trump is negative, the first Covington’s history was written, the three metro Reporter covering a demonstration period, the political Reporter for the administration.
Two days later, the Post reported that the story was much more complicated than originally reported, including the slurs from a black activist group, and Sandman cited the first opinion on the confrontation, on the Cincinnati Enquirer.

So it will be a hard fight, for the Sandman, the parents, who the suit to prove malice, as assert the legal papers. As for the eye-popping damages sought, the suit says that $250 million is what Jeff Bezos spent to buy the Post — in other words, a symbolic figure.
Trump ended one of his tweets, by saying: the press is “completely out of control. Unfortunately, I always have many of them in the economy. In six years, they are all going BROKE!” The President has, in fact, clicks, and ratings for his media increased antagonists, but the last sentence is wishful thinking.
