Expressing frustration with the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the “Democrat-media complex,” President Trump on Friday called out several large mainstream outlets, including the New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN, and referred to them as the “enemy of the American people.”
“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” he tweeted.

Reaction was pretty much what one would expect. Trump-haters bashed the president for his tweet, with some calling him the enemy of the American people and an enemy of free speech, while supporters agreed with his assertion.
As we’ve reported, the complex has continually pushed an anti-Trump narrative, going so far as to suggest that a Trump assassination would keep the Obama regime in power.
Just recently, the Associated Press pushed a story about a plan that would see 100,000 National Guardmen used to throw illegal immigrants out of the country. The plan was never really considered nor approved, but the damage was done as Democrats — too lazy or too stupid to check the facts — ran with the story while claiming it to be true.
The blatant anti-Trump bias is the reason CNN is now considered the least-trusted name in network news.
Prior to the election, WND reported that 91 percent of all media coverage was hostile to Trump. No bias there, right?
Since the election, the complex has repeatedly pushed false narratives and fake stories to bash not only Trump, but those who support him. As a result of the slanted coverage, Americans are more divided than ever with liberals apparently more determined to foment a second bloody civil war.
So, what’s next and how much more slanted, biased, false coverage will we be exposed to?
