Media execs decide not to post Trump hotel pics

For those who can't watch right now. Photographers were allowed to go on the hotel tour, but an ABC editorial journalist was "restrained" and not allowed on the tour. Network bureau chiefs got together and agreed not to publish any of the pictures, though a couple have been tweeted out. Like the Made in China bathrobe.

Not sure how many media outlets signed on to this. We shall see.

2. Is that what this WaPo tweet is from?

If so, then they're giving him the free ad.

7. that looks like a critical story to me

I didn't click on it, but the short description of the article makes it seem that it's not flattering.

9. I finally got it to load and it is critical!

Also it's hilarious! If you can view it I suggest you do so, you'll enjoy it.

3. This whole thing was a COMMERCIAL for his hotel.

He said outrageous things that he knew would get major audience attention, and then he blew it--by affronting the media themselves.

The network chiefs were knowingly going to air a cynical, free, fucking commercial. Their reacting to Trump 's insult to their own importance by refusing to put his commercial on TV is hardly an act of principle.

5. Fair point.

It would be nice if they could manage to get their backs up over Trump's treatment of the rest of us!

6. Don is playing the long con.

Anything that gets him on TV gives him a chance to advertise his hotels, golf courses, and soon to be announced TV network? What a POS.
