to witness how our dictator wannabe is manipulating the press, look no further than press briefings

another day with no video.

audio only.

this is pretty meaningless in terms of content, but it shows 'who is in charge' of the media

and reminds us that access could be terminated at the will of the current administration at any time.

first amendment be damned.

2. The press can put on their adult pants and cut him off.

Media coverage is like oxygen for political parties. The Rs need it too. Edward r Murrow didn't blink when faced with McCarthy. Trump is a Roy Cohn acolyte. Time for the press to channel their great past.
