Inspired by something I read or heard somewhere.
I forget where I heard of such things.


TW for anyone Googling this. Remember kids, question everything and always think for yourselves.

(I hate the whole Drumpf thing...it's like the cheapest possible joke and there is soooo much more to legitimately criticize about him.)

Anyway, it's pretty obvious what he's doing. It's a Nixon trick (older than that, but Nixon is the best contemporary example).
Discredit the people reporting bad things about you, rather than rebut the things they're actually writing (usually because you can't, because they're actually true). Erode faith in the fourth estate to the greatest extent possible. The next step is direct or indirect threats to reporters' lives and safety.

It's fascinating to read modern pieces by reporters like Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward. Every president hates the press to some extent, but the parallels between what Nixon did and what Trump is doing are crazy.
(The fact that Roger Stone was heavily involved in the Trump campaign is definitely part of this.)

You forgot the third option:

They are constantly airing sound bites of his out of context.

I mean, that whole grab em by the pussy thing was taken waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of context.

Referring to a Congressional Budget Office report as "fake news" suggest that Trump has a disconnect from reality.
He's done a few other things that seem unwise, too.

A few.

I'd like Bird's list so we can see how large the word few has grown.

is there an entire list of outlets trump has called fake news? i know they all push a narrative, but i doubt they would deliberately make something up with no factual backing.

I don't have any sort of list relating to this, unless you just mean the list of stuff I personally remember happening.

I wasn't aware Trump called everything fake news. When he referred to CNN as fake news he was rather accurate.

CNN has already had to retract at least one story that they admitted was just a lie to boost ratings.

I think it's accurate to call most news sources 'fake news' or at least call them crap. Even the ones that broadcast 'truth' only do a portion of it in order to make you lean the way they want you to.

I'm not saying I'm for Trump, this just isn't one of the things I care so much about him doing.
