After reading this article, I wondered why is Donald Trump fighting the media? Isn't this a war that he cannot win?
- media's force - informally, the media is considered the fourth power in a state
- free speech is one the most important values in the Western societies
- technology - current technology allows news reporting much more easier. Several decades ago most of the news was in printed form, so disrupting of news spreading was relatively easy (disrupt the printing or the distribution). Nowadays, virtually anyone with a smartphone can become an impromptu reporter.
Question: what is the point of him threatening journalists and thus fighting with a part of the mass media?
This behavior can be explained during the campaign, but what is the point after winning the elections?
