MSNBC took its fear mongering smears of the Donald Trump administration to a dark new low Monday afternoon when reporter Katy Tur suggested the president’s war with the media would start racking up actual casualties.
During an interview with Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican, Tur suggested Trump would take a page from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s playbook and start targeting journalists for death. -Nicholas Fondacaro
Some of the most stunned people in the country right now are the media talking heads who spent over a year predicting there was no way Donald Trump could win the presidency. As election results poured in last night, the media experienced an all-out meltdown. -Claire Chretien
The news media, in the aftermath of their self-perceived failure to prevent a Donald Trump presidential victory, are throwing a temper tantrum... To be sure, the mainstream media see the win by Trump as a defeat for them. They had their thumbs on the scale for Clinton all the way. It didn’t work, and they are out for revenge. -Richard Benedetto

ABC News apologized Tuesday after the Monday night edition of Nightline edited a quote from former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer in a way that made it appear that he was more critical of current White House press secretary Sean Spicer than he actually was.

National editor at Politico Michael Hirsh resigned after publishing the home addresses of alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer Tuesday morning and advocating for serious violence... “I wasn’t thinking of a f---ing letter, Doug. He lives part of the time next door to me in Arlington. Our grandfathers brought baseball bats to Bund meetings. Want to join me?”
Slate: Brothers In White Resentment
President-elect Donald Trump and Dylann Roof, the 22-year-old who was found guilty Thursday on 33 charges related to the murder of nine black churchgoers in South Carolina, are “brothers in white resentment,” according to Slate:
It’s to see both Donald Trump and Dylann Roof as heralds of the darkest forces in American life, to see their common heritage in a rising tide of white identity and white nationalism.

Liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested Friday that President-elect Donald Trump could have an incentive to allow or launch a 9/11-style attack on the United States once in office. Krugman wrote that President George W. Bush came into office with questions surrounding his legitimacy that were “dispelled” by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Krugman surmised that gave Trump “interesting incentives.”
Most journalists missed the story because they were too caught up in defending a system of cultural authority of which they had foolishly allowed themselves to become an integral part.

Kurt Eichenwald is an experienced investigative journalist, with a best-selling book to his credit and years of work at the New York Times, Vanity Fair and now Newsweek. So what was Eichenwald thinking Tuesday when he tweeted this:
“I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records.”
There’s no evidence that Trump was ever hospitalized for such a condition, and Eichenwald cited none. The tweet was quickly deleted from Eichenwald’s account...
"If you look at the last eight years, there has been a very concerted war on not just sources and whistleblowers, but also journalists, implemented by not Donald Trump but by the Obama administration."
