WASHINGTON President Donald Trump on Monday accused the media of being "the true Enemy of People" in the wake of a mass shooting and a mail bomb plot.

Trump tweeted: "There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news." He added that the media "must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly."

On Twitter Sunday, he savaged billionaire businessman Tom Steyer, another target of the mail bombs.

Soros, not Steyer, allegedly received a package (until proven they could explode, they are NOT bombs). Did I miss some news about Steyer, or is the above an error?

By their logic, Trump can not be criticized because Ricin was sent to his administration. If Soros and Clinton are untouchable and cannot he commented on, neither can the President.

The media have blood on their hands.

They are responsible for the hatred that fuels these attacks and murders.

He’s asked nicely. They may get more than “boos” if they keep it up.

——The man arrested in connection with the mail bomb plot, Cesar Sayoc, was a fervent Trump supporter.——

It can be said with certainty that the fake bomber drov a van covered with pro Trump stickers.

Is thereother evidence that the fake bomber waas a fervent Trump supporter.

I have read there is evidence to the contrary

I hope someone who knows the answer will come along and post it. This is the 2nd time I have seen Steyer’s name mentioned as being the recipient of a fake bomb mailing. I don’t know the facts on this.

Let’s just start calling this kind of journalism exactly what it is — Journalism Malpractice.

Definition of malpractice

1: a dereliction of professional duty or a failure to exercise an ordinary degree of professional skill or learning by one (such as a physician) rendering professional services which results in injury, loss, or damage

2 : an injurious, negligent, or improper practice: malfeasance

Nothing CNN says or does anymore is credible – It is all BS and lies!!!

I don’t think that the connection between the media acting on behalf of the dems and their “resistance” is being made clear enough. I wish he would call them the Resistance Media, as this puts them clearly with the whole resistance movement, the source of anarchy. Even the Democrat Media would point it out.

That’s a good point. “Resistance” media......sounds good. Send a message to the White House with this suggestion. You never know whether or not your message will get to the President or not,..worth a try?

I think the president should not be calling the media “the true enemy of the people”. As recent events show, there are crazy and evil people out there, and rhetoric can send them over the edge. When the media are wrong are biased, Trump should use his megaphone to explain what they are wrong or biased about.

Pat Caddell said it back in 2012, he was right then and Trump is right now.

I believe freedom of the press as stated in the First Amendment refers to the ability to accurately report and not to throw out theories, and opinion based upon the individual reporters personal feelings or at the direction of the company which the reporter is employed. Nor do I agree with manufacturing events by sensationalizing objectives in an attempt To sway public opinion.

What other evidence are you looking for? We pointed out with glee that Congressman Scalise’s shooter was a Bernie supporter and suggested he was motivated to act because of that. Why in the world would we suddenly change course on that line of attack simply because this guy appeared to be a Trump supporter?
