Trump’s War on the Media 2.0
Trump continues to publicly imagine journalists who work with leakers getting raped in prison
The former US President Donald Trump will supposedly announce his 2024 presidential run next week and hence, the continuation of his war on the media. Rolling Stone magazine reported Tuesday that number 45 has sought advice about how he could ramp up his war on the mainstream media (MSM) by jailing journalists if he wins the 2024 Presidential election.
Trump’s first presidential campaign and four years in office featured constant attacks on reporters, outlets, journalists, and leakers. He frequently declared the industry was “fake news” and went after journalists for reporting on leaked information.
“This year . . . he’s begun soliciting ideas from conservative allies for how the U.S. government and Justice Department could go about turning his desires — for brutally imprisoning significant numbers of reporters — into reality,” Rolling Stone revealed.
The Reporters Without Borders (RSF) annual World Press Freedom Index shows that in Trump’s final year in the White House, there were nearly 400 assaults against journalists and 10 arrests of members of the media according to the US Press Freedom Tracker.
