Here is the statement from A.G Sulzberger

My main purpose for accepting the meeting was to raise concerns about the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric.

I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.

I told him that although the phrase “fake news” is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists “the enemy of the people.” I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.

I repeatedly stressed that this is particularly true abroad, where the president’s rhetoric is being used by some regimes to justify sweeping crackdowns on journalists. I warned that it was putting lives at risk, that it was undermining the democratic ideals of our nation, and that it was eroding one of our country’s greatest exports: a commitment to free speech and a free press.

Throughout the conversation I emphasized that if President Trump, like previous presidents, was upset with coverage of his administration he was of course free to tell the world. I made clear repeatedly that I was not asking for him to soften his attacks on The Times if he felt our coverage was unfair. Instead, I implored him to reconsider his broader attacks on journalism, which I believe are dangerous and harmful to our country.

  1. We the People Despise the JournoWhores, who are Incapable of revealing the Truth because of their TDS.
    They alone, are Responsible for Our Negative Sentiment against them.
    They accept no responsibility for this. Zero!
    Respect is Earned, and President Trump/We the People, would Gladly accept Fair Criticism, if the Enemedia did not routinely Attack, Every Thing Our President does.
    Everyone can be wrong, except the Press.
    This must change, or the customer (Us!), will Never Return!
    Enemedia earned their Title, and are Nekid to Us!!
