Trump declares traditional media enemies of the people?

From Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge:

Tweets follow.

Reality check:  Of course, it’s true. The traditional media are, today, masterless men, as they put it in the Middle Ages. They need progressive government to become Orwell’s Outer Party again.

By all means, be critical of Trump. But do not believe a word of what these soon-to-be hats in the taxpayers’ street say. Unless you have an emotional need for their brand of fake news.
