Dear Conservatives, stop attacking the media

CNN is NOT fake news!

I am sick and tired of having to say that, and we can thank Trump for creating an environment where a GOP house candidate body slammed a reporter. America is supposed to be “the land of the free”, and that should include the free press.

As of late, it seems that it does not.

It seems as if Donald Trump has upped the anti on the typical Republican claim that the media is liberal. In fact, he even called the media the enemy of the American people.

Okay, Trump

He is correct that the media is not his enemy, but he is wrong when he calls it the enemy of the American people. To the contrary, it is the foundation of our democracy.

I discussed the current situation of our media wars in this country with my english teacher this morning. I want to make one thing clear : this website is not news. It is opinion. We use facts to back our opinions, but we’re not claiming to be gospel over here. The issue is that many opinion sites are. Just look at Breitbart. Don’t use that as a source, or Occupy Democrats for that matter.

If we did not have the press, we would not be a democracy. End of story.
