Media Should Fear Muslims and Leftists, Not Trump The media ought to be thanking Trump for protecting it from its allies. August 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield
Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.
Trump’s criticism of the media “is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence,” claims Artie Sulzberger, the latest scion of the New York Times dynasty.
Artie, who got the chairman job because of his last name, earns $5 million a year. The only threat to him came from a shameless bootlicking Washington Post article praising his journalistic humility.
“Yeah, we get it, you don’t like us. Fine. But do you have to put our lives in danger?” MSNBC’s Katy Tur whined. “He wants to endanger the lives of journalists,” columnist Connie Smith wailed at Trump.
How endangered is the modern media hack?
Reporters, pundits and other fake news media gobbers have been claiming that Trump is endangering them for a while now.
“How long before someone is seriously hurt, or worse?” New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg demanded last August.
How long? It’s been over a year now.
“Someone is going to do something awful to a journalist,” Jeffrey Toobin claimed on CNN. And they have. They’ve mocked, ridiculed and humiliated the media for its hysterical fake news nonsense.
