Free-press groups warn of violence against media

Free-press groups warn against media violenceLong accustomed to chronicling threats against the media in other countries, free press organizations are turning their attention to extreme rhetoric and threatened violence against reporters at home as President Donald Trump and his allies ramp up their attacks on the mainstream media.

For more than a year many of these organizations — including the Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press — have issued statements raising the alarm over Trump’s rhetoric and his administration's attempts to restrict media access.

Media reaps dividends from Trump attacks

Media reaps dividends from Trump attacksCable news outlets are pulling huge ratings and reporters are becoming overnight celebrities as the attacks between President Trump and the media enter strange new territory.

The White House has agitated for the fight, believing that every day it spends feuding with the media exposes further press bias and energizes the conservative base.

But Trump’s claim that MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift" unified the media, with anchors from Fox News to CNN expressing outrage at the president’s tweets and pointing to them as evidence that the press should not treat Trump like a normal president.

Journalists push back on Trump's media attacks

Journalists fight back against Trump

Journalists are standing in solidarity with CNN after President Trump tweeted a video of him beating an individual with a CNN logo superimposed over his face.

“I think it is unseemly that the president would attack journalists for doing their jobs, and encourage such anger at the media,” The New York Times’ executive editor Dean Baquet said.

The Committee to Protect Journalists, which has devoted much of its work in the past to advocate for the press living under authoritarian regimes, said the president actions are creating an environment where harassment is acceptable.

‘Morning Joe’ hosts question Trump’s mental state, say he lied in tweets

Joe Scarborough and Mika Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough on Friday morning fired back at Donald Trump after he attacked them in crude tweets the day before, writing in a Washington Post op-ed that the president “is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show.”

“President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president,” the "Morning Joe" co-hosts wrote. “The president’s unhealthy obsession with ‘Morning Joe’ does not serve the best interests of either his mental state or the country he runs.”

Mika Brzezinski responds to Trump with 'little hands' reference

Made for little handsMSNBC host Mika Brzezinski needed no words of her own in responding to President Donald Trump's attack on her on Thursday morning.

In a tweet, she posted a photo of a box of Cheerios. On it, the words "Made For Little Hands" are written.

For years, Trump has taken issue with people saying he has small hands and fingers. In a Republican primary debate in 2016, Trump defended the size of his hands and his genitals after Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida had said days earlier: "You know what they say about men with small hands? ... You can't trust them."

TVNL Comment:  Ya gotta love it. The Baby President will have an infantile temper tantrum over this.  His skin is as thin as his hands are small.

Gabe Pressman, legendary newsman, dies at 93

Gabe Pressman dead at 93Decades before every Mary, Joe and Harry had a camera and a microphone in their pockets and ability to broadcast news or nothing burgers to the entire world, there was Gabe Pressman.

Pressman, the legendary New York City WNBC newsman who died Friday at 93, was the city’s first roving television reporter and a singular force in local news.

While other journalists were still scribbling quotes in their notebooks, or reading wire stories to their producers and editors, Pressman — a rumpled and pushy journalist, beloved for his everyman, middle-class broadcasting style — had already shoved a microphone into a newsmaker’s face and got it all on tape.
