President Trump made a point to slam our dishonest media during his rally in Florida on Saturday. He was completely within his right to do so. The media has attacked him and his supporters relentlessly since he was sworn in.
Here’s a partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
“We are not going to let the fake news tell us what to do, how to live, or what to believe,” the president promised. “We are free and independent people and we will make our own choices. We are here today to speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I hear your voices, I hear your demands, and I promise I will deliver. I promise you.”
Trump said he will continue to call out the media and not let the media “get away” with lies.
“Many of our greatest presidents fought with the media and called them out, oftentimes on their lies. When the media lies to people, I will never ever let them get away with it. I will do whatever I can that they don’t get away with it. They have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda,” the president said.
“They have become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system,” Trump said.

Trump is right.
The media does have an agenda. A leftist one.
