No love lost between Trump and the media

EWN's Nadia Neophytou, reporting from New York, used the word "audacious" to describe President Trump's media conference on Thursday where he said: "The press, honestly, is out of control. The press is becoming so dishonest."

Trump claimed in his meeting that the media (in Washington DC, NY and LA) speaks not for the people, but for special interests and for those profiting off a very broken system.

"If we don't talk about it we are doing a tremendous disservices to the American people," Trump said.

[The media briefing] went into the many ways Donald Trump is angry with the media. It left jaws wide open because he went through individual media, attacking news outlets and shows and every journalist who stood up, he tried to discredit.
