Maybe We’re the Ones Who Have It All Wrong

If you visit this site with any degree of regularity you’re probably the kind of person who has gotten a good laugh over President Trump’s declaration that the press is the enemy of the people.

But according to USA Today,

Nearly half of Republicans surveyed — 44 percent — believe the president should be able to shutter news outlets for “bad behavior,” according to a new poll released Tuesday. 

The poll by Ipsos emphasizes the clear divide between party lines when it comes to the role of the media and its coverage of the Trump administration. Twenty-nine percent, nearly a third, of the more than 1,000 people polled said they believed the news media was the enemy of the American people, a phrase that was coined and popularized by President Donald Trump. That number jumps to 48 percent if you just examine Republicans surveyed. 

Still laughing?
