Donald Trump hates the media, just because they insist on relaying the facts about his administration as objectively as possible. The problem is, Trump wants only news outlets that fawn over him — say like that in North Korea. Unfortunately for POTUS, he is not a dictator, a king, the Pope, or Putinesque. Yet, Trump thinks he has a solution.
He tweeted that he wants his own “Worldwide Network,” because CNN is “unfair” to him:
‘While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair….
‘….and false way. Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!’
Trump said that he believes CNN does not have enough competition. He is wrong. There is MSNBC nosing right up next to the network. FOX has had a strong following, too.
America funds the international Voice of America, which is a radio broadcasting network. For some reason, Congress canned its board of directors in 2017, according to POLITICO. Then, they opened up a new CEO job, and get this, the president appoints a person to that job.
That begs the question: what is the president of these United States up to? At this point in time, the answer is still a mystery.
POTUS managed to start an argument with CNN’s Jim Acosta at a press conference. Trump did not have to call on Acosta, but he did. Then, the White House pulled the network’s top White House correspondent’s credentials. Until he sued, Acosta was barred from not only the White House, but also the grounds.
