Establishment Journalists Fear for Their Lives After Donald Trump Criticism

Written by  Charlie Spiering

Members of the establishment media reacted in horror after President Donald Trump criticized them again during a rally in Phoenix in the wake of the violent Charlottesville protests.

Axios founder Jim VandeHei sent a series of distressed messages on Twitter early Wednesday morning after Trump called the media “bad people” and “sick people” who “don’t like our country.”

To family/friends who support Trump: what he said last night about reporters was despicable, extremely deceptive, dangerous. Claim bias. Fine. Claim elitism. Fine. Claim the press hyperventilates/bloviates. Fine. But to say reporters erase America’s heritage, don’t love America, turn off cameras to hide truth, are to blame for racial tension, is just plain wrong. I worked w/ reporters like Daniel Pearl who died a gruesome death seeking truth; scores die yearly exposing facts. There are great Americans deeply concerned about a changing nation. God forbid one buys Trump’s mad rant and takes action..

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd also expressed worry that journalist’s lives were in danger.

“Whether POTUS means it or not, I don’t know, but this could motivate a crazy,” he said on Twitter. “Dangerous rhetoric. Sad how few elected officials condemn it.”

“Who will Donald Trump blame when a journalist gets severely injured or worse by someone acting in his name?” wrote Tom Namako of Buzzfeed.

Trump is 100% right. You don't like it when he calls you out for what you are because it doesn't "fit" your agenda.
Well TOO darned bad, grow up, REPORT THE TRUTH and the FACTS and let your readers decide, rather than spin the truth and leave out key components of the facts that sway the truth into your ideology.

To Jim VandeHei, Chuck Todd and especially Tom Namako: Where were you when on of your own got his head split open requiring stitches by your antifa love child? All I hear are crickets.

VandeHei, Todd and Namako (especially Todd) don't have any reason for concern as I believe only journalists may or may not have any reason for concern. Just more bullshit without any newsworthiness!

Excellent, let's put a bounty on biased news reporters who taint the facts for their agenda.
Liar, liar pants on fire could become a happening thing for the worst of the media who blatantly lie to fan the flames of hatred.

Gimmie a break, people get hurt all the time due to media bias- they hype everything imaginable to whip people into a frenzy...
-ANTIFA supporting this group a "Peace through Violence" disregarding that they are demonstrable "FASCISTS" and race baiters
-School shootings - hypermediated without regard to generating copy cat response or the unimaginable pain of the families
-Black Lives Matter - media encourages belief that All Americans are Racists, flipping the "R" word thousands of times each day
-Blue Lives - media hypes any police action heedless of the back story, promoting "Police Brutality" that precipitates police murders
-FAKE NEWS - promoting incredibly unrefined & un-vetted material to the public, later redacting or simply erase & ignore mistakes
-Political Promotion - totally left leaning, spin stories to shove lies down the throats of people who unrealistically reply on media
Everyone knows the media is constrained to heavy hitters like Soros, and that there really is no journalism anymore. Today the NEWS media resembles a pack of starving wolves, churning out BS to try and remain relevant and keep their career profitable.

I suppose the nut job who shot up the Republican baseball practice a couple of months ago was encouraged by Despicable Donald? Or was he simply influenced by Crazy Charlie (Schumer)?

Why should we feel sorry for you? You didn't tell us the truth and keep news hidden, started fake news and did it all for a couple of asshole. That's exactly what you get backing losers. You didn't do your job, which most of you have forgotten what that is! We need new leaders and reporters in this country. The news is suppose to keep the government honest. But you proved that you can be bought. If your against us then leave or we'll drive you out.

The MSM need to just report the news without putting leftist slant to it. Just report the facts!
For the last 25 or 30 years we haven't had just the facts reported! The news media appears to bE owned by someone who has an agenda for America that want its citizens to be in conflict and destroy what has made America great!
I have no trust in the news any more!

Well, that's just too bad, Libtard Media. All your tirades against the President and Conservatives is why Congressman Scalice and his team mates got shot, and it could've been a lot worse. You deserve everything that happens to you. And I hope it does. You're not victims.........you're instigators.

Trump "0" Clintons "42" The hit man must work for the government on the left as he has never been caught.

It is sad that the media gets 98 percent of their funding from the democrats, and do nothing to tell the truth, there is so much fake news out there I don't even watch the news anymore on TV and I subscribe to Christian News, and read Presidents Trumps information. I may not agree with him 100 percent all the time but it is darn close. He isn't afraid to tell ilt like it is, and the journalist if you can call them that, dont' want to offend the Demo- rats so they turn it around and make it seems like he is not doing his job, when in reality the NEWS isn't doing their job. our President instead of supporting what he says. If they get injured it isn't because of what our President said, it is because even liberals are getting tired of all the fake news., and someone on a demo-crat side has ordered the hit...perhaps a Clinton or an Obama. We are tired of liars and fake news, so give it up, take a stand and tell the truth, the truth will set you free, stop your evil ways before it is to late.

If you think the Media is so wrong then why has their subscriptions gone up and advertising in those Media outlets has boomed because the majority of the people do agree with the news it is the same news since just at teh beginning of WWII when Roosevelt hired two persons Gabriel Heater and Lowell Thomas to put a spin on the war to make people think it was going better than it was. Ever since it has been news in the form of commentary, it is still the news with the facts, it is just the broadcasters or editors opinion added in you do not have to agree with them just listen to the facts and forget the spin, if most here did that then they would realize Trump is just spin no facts to any thing he says. I big spoiled person who has had his way all his life and can not understand why he can not have his way now.

It is great that Trump spoke the Truth about the media. They cite non-named (probably non-existent) sources. Much of what they report is actually a fabrication or a gross distortion of the truth. It is the media that is giving a voice and support to the obstructionists, terrorists, and violence perpetrators by donating so much air time to discussing these non events rather than talking about the important things facing our people, our country, and our way of life. The media should feel the heat. Its not a call for violence against them, its a call for them to be honest and forthright in their reporting, keep that which harms our country out of the blubbering pages of the fake media, and stop giving a platform to terrorists. Unfortunately, you rarely get the truth about what Trump is doing or saying without severe redaction to eliminate portions to make it sound anti-American and ominous. Journalists, quit talking about the thugs, goons, and American disrupters, and start talking about getting our country back on track with the world and improving our defense posture to protect us and our posterity. Sanctuary cities are a blight to the rule of law our country has stood for, for the past 240+ years. Immigration, under the law, has been allowed for more years than I can count, but the operative word here is under the law. What right does anyone have to use my hard earned tax dollars to support those that violate our laws by even being here. No one denies an immigrant entry into the United States as long as its done according to the rule of law.

The truth hurts or at least the Leftest news media wants you to believe they are innocent victims. Victimhood is the nature of the left, let everyone go on the endless lists of people who won't take responsibility for their own actions. It's nice that we see all these sapposid intelligent graduates from the best leftest schools money can buy, snowflakes wanting to yell how Trumps trying to cause harm to their ilk. No way Trumps going after them as he should, lefts face it he's telling the truth they are not.

So, are you hate mongers saying it is ok for you to call out people, but not ok to call out the LYING press..?? YOU PRESS folk do not appear to care when you are throwing the rhetoric.. ARE you saying it is bad if a CRAZY kills someone, because of something inflamitory? IS this a CASE of do as I say, not do as I do? HOW DO YOU LIKE BEING CALLED OUT?? REMEMBER IF YOU LIVE IN A GLASS HOUSE YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS THROWING STONES!!!!!!!!!
