The Administration and The Press SHOULD be at ODDS!

The CBS host of their Sunday show, John Dickerson, condemns Trump for his press relations, as if our instructional memories are short.
“Mr. Trump is creating a new relationship with the press. All presidents try to control the message by controlling the press — but Mr. Trump is trying to do it through intimidation to soften up the stories against him. ” http://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-press-relationship-delegitmize-john-dickerson/

Yo! Dickerson!

Do you remember that Obama held invitation only pressers and didn’t invite Fox News. (September 20, 2009) The good news is that the major news organizations, CBS, NBC, ABC all condemned the slighting of FOX News…but the administration was obviously hostile!

Do you remember the Obama administration Justice Department investigating a Fox reporter? (James Rosen)

“White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that the Fox News Channel is “not really a news station” and that much of the programming is “not really news”. http://www.politico.com/story/2009/10/fox-not-really-news-says-axelrod-028417

We have an institutional memory. We remember that presidents have a Constitutionally protected antithesis to government. It is their job. 

Presidents, all presidents hate it!

Good! They should! It is the norm!
