Dictator Trump, enemy of the press, hurt by openness to press

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

For that matter, what are all those other endless briefings he has hosted every night since this pandemic spawned — supposedly — from a wet market in Wuhan? Once again reaching new depths of shameless depravity, the press is now crying uncle. Perhaps there is something, after all, to this whole “fake news,” “enemy of the people” thing after all.
