Boston Globe Wants Media To Go To War With Trump Next Week

Here’s Excitable Joe Scarborough

The thing is, the media has already gone to war with Trump. This started before he even won the primary, and would have gone on no matter who won the primary. It goes on against elected Republicans and Republican voters. We didn’t start this, Trump didn’t start this, but, we’ve been calling for decades for elected Republicans to stand up and take on the media. And when Trump did this we get


The Boston Globe has called for the coordinated publication of editorials by any and all news outlets criticizing President Trump’s rhetoric on the press, scheduled for next week.

They have asked a number news organizations to publish editorials condemning the president’s labeling of the press as “the enemy of the people.”

Marjorie Pritchard, who oversees the Globe’s editorial page, says dozens of newspapers have agreed so far to write their own editorials, according to the Associated Press.

The Globe’s decision comes as a response to the president’s increasingly hostile rhetoric towards many news organizations — what the Boston newspaper calls his “dirty war against the free press.” Trump has consistently called out specific news organizations like CNN and MSNBC

What they want are papers to publish them on August 16th, but, really, this will be virtually nothing different from the rest of the week. Month. Year. If Trump came out in support of an assault weapons ban, keeping abortion illegal, a stronger Paris Climate Agreement, etc, the media would still find a way to slam him.

The media may not be the enemy of the people, but it sure is the enemy of Republicans/Conservatives. And anytime you think “perhaps Trump went a little too far by saying/tweeting X”, remember that the Boston Globe, a news outlet, wants all news outlets to band together to go after the duly elected president. But barely even chided Obama when he was literally spying on reporters.

    Let’s see, Sen. Diane Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her staff for over twenty years and the enemedia thinks people really care their Trump bashing opinions?

    Cons have been whining about the media for decades, since the truth has a clear liberal bias.

    Let’s be clear. The unfit-for-office Trump is a media creation. From his TV shows to the constant publicity on cable news. Morning Joe gave The Donald millions of $ of free publicity early on.

    His “enemy of the people” is just his current schtick.

    The media loved George W. Bush and hated Al Gore (wouldn’t everyone want to have a beer with the affable Bush but not the wooden Gore?). The media hated the Clintons. They loved Obama (but who didn’t?). They loved McCain but hated Palin.

    Currently, the GOP/conservatives hold the White House, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court and most statehouses. They have their own cable network. Hardly seems the media have hurt them much.

    Here’s what the NY Times said in 2016:

    Under Mr. Obama, the Justice Department and the F.B.I. have spied on reporters by monitoring their phone records, labeled one journalist an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal case…

    Over the past eight years, the administration has prosecuted nine cases involving whistle-blowers and leakers, compared with only three by all previous administrations combined.

    In a scathing 2013 report for the Committee to Protect Journalists, Leonard Downie, a former executive editor of The Washington Post who now teaches at Arizona State University, said the war on leaks and other efforts to control information was “the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration

    And why didn’t the Repuds go after Obama on this issue? For as much as they hated Obama, they agreed with his authoritarian stance on leaks.

      The thing is that people don’t know if you are trolling and trying to get your hate out, or it you are really that stupid. I am betting on the stupid aspect. I would show your errors in knowledge, logic and judgement, but you still would not understand.

        Just setting the record straight.

        It’s becoming more and more evident that the 35%ers represent a subset of Americans fundamentally different from most Americans. They find the likes of the hateful Sarah Palin and Donald Trump appealing. They believe things that are not true. They have no confidence in science and hold magical beliefs. Trump has given them the confidence to come out of the shadows and reveal their hatred toward others. They are white, Christian, undereducated, and feel victimized in the modern world. Trump uses them to his advantage.

    It was 10 years ago, but I remember the Boston Globe was 1st in a ranking of newspapers by how far to the left their reporting was.

  4. Jl says:

    Funny-“go to war..”. And what’s been happening since Trump won the nomination, skirmishes? As far as editorials, I’m sure at least 90% of large metro area newspapers were anti-Trump leading up to the election, and haven’t changed since. They’re just trying to re-name what they’ve been doing all along.

    • Jeffery says:

      The media, the courts and American voters are all that can stop this renegade regime from further harming America. Trump detests media that criticizes him. He and his minions are running a PR attack on the media, the FBI and our judicial system. He’s not used to criticism or being told no.
