As Trump’s Poll Numbers Rise, Media Begin Censoring Press Conferences

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

In response to positive Trump's positive poll numbers, the media were angry and depressed and began blaming his press conferences. Their theory seemed to be that the more Americans saw Trump, unfiltered, they liked him and the more Americans saw the behavior of the media, they didn’t like it. This flies in the face of what many in the media assumed for years. They pushed for daily White House press conferences so that they could have the opportunity to be on camera and pressure Trump. Now that they had daily press briefings with the president, they weren’t happy. A weird response for people whose ostensible job is to simply report the news of the day.
