April Ryan: Trump’s Sending a Dangerous Signal by Attacking Media
BLITZER: "He attacks not only the "New York Times" but CNN. The #Amazon "Washington Post" sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying Internet taxes which they should. It's fake news. That tweet, April Ryan, was presumably in response to a story from the "Washington Post" which documented fake "Time magazine" covers featuring trump and several of his golf clubs. He seems to be threatening, at least in that tweet, the owner of the Amazon owner Jeff bazos higher taxes for something he doesn't like. Is that a dangerous signal to send?"
RYAN: "It's a dangerous signal to send, it's dangerous all over. We have a president who wants to try to diminish the press, try to diminish people who are writing the facts, whether he wants to color them another way, we may color them a different way, and he wants to go against them and hit people at the heart of where they live and breathe and their pocketbook as well. It's a dangerous road to go down. It's a sad commentary when this is happening between the press and the president, and wolf, we covered the White House together years ago, and this relationship with the press and president has been going on for years, and now it has come to this. It's a very sad commentary, but we have to see how it continues to play out."
