Boom! Seth Meyers leveled an eloquent, sharply worded critique of President-elect Trump’s recent tirade targeting CNN and Buzzfeed as “Fake news.”
Meyers stressed how unfit, unpresidential, and unnerving it is for the President-elect to label respectable journalism as “Fake news” simply because Mr. Trump disagrees with the content of the reporting.
While Trump’s disdain for the Press is not new, he now wields the power of the presidential bully pulpit, and with this power comes a responsibility to abstain from partisan attacks on Free Speech and Freedom of the Press.
Trump’s relentless, unending obsession with unfavorable media coverage threatens to destabilize the First Amendment freedoms that uphold our democracy. Only fascist dictators and desperate despots behave this way.
