    Emperor Trump, same as all the dictators who have preceded him, relentlessly attacks the news media and seeks to silence his critics.

    Fox News host lambastes Trump for assault on press freedom
    Newsmax, Dec 12 2019 12:27 PM

    Fox News host Chris Wallace lambasted President Donald Trump in a speech Wednesday at the Newseum, a Washington DC interactive gallery devoted to the media, in Washington. "I believe President Trump is engaged in the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history," Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, said to applause. "He has done everything he can to undercut the media, to try to delegitimize us, and I think his purpose is clear: to raise doubts when we report critically about him and his administration that we can be trusted. Back in 2017, he tweeted something that said far more about him than it did about us: 'The fake news media is not my enemy. It is the enemy of the American people.'" In his speech, Wallace noted that retired Navy Admiral Bill McRaven, a SEAL for 37 years, once said that Trump's "sentiment may be the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime" because it undermined the U.S. Constitution.

    Another Fox News host who insults and demeans women. Why am I not surprised?

    Fox News' Jesse Watters sparked a wave of backlash after he claimed female journalists trade sex for scoops 'all the time'

    Emperor Trump, who has a galaxy-sized ego, is upset that Fox News is not "All Trump, all the time." How dare they interview anyone besides him! In a tweet, the orange-skinned Insulter-In-Chief called Schiff "corrupt" and "shifty" and called Comey a "totally discredited sleazebag." He also said the recent Democratic debates "failed." What does he mean? Who knows. In Trumpworld, almost nothing makes any sense.

    One reason racist, bigoted, immigrant-hating Emperor Trump loves the Fox News Channel is because many of their program hosts are also racist, bigoted immigrant-haters. They are glad to do all they can to help Trump implement his "Make America Hate Again" and "Make America White Again" programs and policies.

    In 1924, The Chicago Tribune bought radio station WDAP and renamed it WGN after its slogan "World's Greatest Newspaper." WGN-TV Channel 9 went on the air in 1948 and the cable channel WGN America launched in 1978.

    The McClatchy publishing empire began in 1857 with the Daily Bee, a Sacramento newspaper founded by John Rollin Ridge. On the paper's fifth day of publication, James McClatchy became editor. He had previously worked as a reporter for the New York Tribune and five newspapers in California. Today the McClatchy Company owns 30 daily newspapers in 14 states, including the Miami Herald, Fresno Bee, Modesto Bee, Sacramento Bee, Idaho Statesman, Charlotte Observer, Kansas City Star and Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Trish Regan is gone from Fox. Now they need to also get rid of Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, who have made similar outrageous comments. Coronavirus is a health issue, not a political issue.

    King Donald the First has spewed dozens of false and misleading statements about the coronavirus. He gets his (mis)information from Fox News, a.k.a. the Trump Cheerleading Channel.

    Professors, journalists call out Fox News' coronavirus misinformation in scathing letter
    The letter accuses the widely watched conservative network of contributing "to the spread of a grave pandemic."
