“Emotionally F**king Pissed” Media Blows Embargo And Lashes Out At Trump – “F*ck Him”

Recommended Posts

Just yesterday Trump called a summit of all the major mainstream media executives and anchors at Trump Tower.  While many expected the meeting to be an oppotunity to ask questions of the president-elect, the media elites apparently got the surprise of their lives when Trump spent the majority of the meeting attacking they’re blatant biased coverage the 2016 presidential elections referring to the room as a bunch of “dishonest, deceitful liars.”  One participant in the meeting described it as a “f—ing firing squad” after “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said “I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….”  We suspect that was rather less cordial than they expected.

Despite the conversation being completely off the record, many of the “emotionally f***ing pissed” media anchors have decided to blow their embargoes and lash out at Trump.  According to one source interviewed by the New Yorker, the meeting at Trump Tower was “f***ing outrageous.”  The same source also questioned how he could remain impartial after the meeting saying “How can this not influence coverage?”…yes, because coverage was so impartial up until yesterday.

Another participant at the meeting said that Trump’s behavior was “totally inappropriate” and “f***ing outrageous.” The television people thought that they were being summoned to ask questions; Trump has not held a press conference since late July. Instead, they were subjected to a stream of insults and complaints—and not everyone absorbed it with pleasure.

“I have to tell you, I am emotionally f***ing pissed,” another participant said. “How can this not influence coverage? I am being totally honest with you. Toward the end of the campaign, it got to a point where I thought that the coverage was all about [Trump’s] flaws and problems. And that’s legit. But, I thought, O.K., let’s give them the benefit of the doubt. After the meeting today, though—and I am being human with you here—I think, f*** him! I know I am being emotional about it. And I know I will get over it in a couple of days after Thanksgiving. But I really am offended. This was unprecedented. Outrageous!”

Participants said that Trump did not raise his voice, but that he went on steadily at the start of the meeting about how he had been treated poorly. “It was all so Trump,” one said. “He is like this all the time. He’ll freeze you out and then be nice and humble and sort of want you to like him.”

“But he truly doesn’t seem to understand the First Amendment,” the source continued. “He doesn’t. He thinks we are supposed to say what he says and that’s it.”

And, as the eloquent Kellyanne Conway pointed out in her opening response last night on the Megyn Kelly show, negative reactions, like the one above, went a long way toward helping Trump win the presidency.

“Fairness is actually not having presumptive negativity written about you and always assuming the worst about you.  And I think that Donald Trump has faced an unprecedented avalanche of critical coverage when he was running and frankly i think, in part, he owes his victory to that.  There was a backlash against the elites, a backlash against those who were telling Americans what is important to them.”

What are the chances that the mainstream media figures out before 2020 that by relentlessly attacking Trump they’re actually helping him?

Here is our full coverage of the Trump “media summit” that was described by some as a “f—ing firing squad”:

Earlier today we reported that in a “summit” organized by Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, executives and anchors from the major US media outlets, including CNN president Jeff Zucker, ABC News president James Goldston, Fox News co-presidents Bill Shine and Jack Abernethy, and NBC News president Deborah Turness, visited Donald Trump at his Trump Tower penthouse for an off the record meeting.

Courtesy of the Post, we have a complete list of the participants at the Trump media meeting: the hour-long powwow included top execs from network and cable news channels. Among the attendees were NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and Gayle King, Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace, Suzanne Scott, MSNBC’s Phil Griffin and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

The contents of what was discussed were initially unclear.

Now, according to the Post and Politico, we learn that the President-elect “exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday.”

“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” one source told the Post.

According to the Post’s recound of the conversation, “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….”

Maybe I'm reading out of context but that last line would indicate that when they do this they are no longer being reporters, but instead propaganda machines twisting things to fit their narrative.

In my simple mind, the first amendment gives the right to free speech, not the right to slander and libel.  However, currently in "The Law" libel and slander are LEGAL.  (you can be sued in civil court)

I would love to see the slander and libel laws tightened and actually enforced.

I don't want to sound like I'm buying everything Trump is selling but I think this is brilliant.  The belief in the mainstream media is at an all time low.  I think Any negative story coming out of this group is going to sound like nothing but a bunch of butthurt cry babies.  The media is dangerously close to the boy who cried wolf.  I also think it's a dangerous game because from what I've seen the MSM is just digging their heels in and going to just keep doing what they're doing.  Makes me wonder who they're getting their marching orders from.  I think the DNC is pretty irrelevent, but maybe I'm wrong.

I lost count how many times the Liberals use the "f***" word.  They chanted "f*** your tower", at the protests. They had the word "f*** you "all over their signs. Hispanics were flipping the bird and yelling "f*** you" into the cameras

White liberal women were yelling "f*** you" on Donald Trumps twitter. and white male libs were saying they were so "f***ing mad "  Whats their obsession with the word  " "f***?" Now we have the description of Donalds "f***ing firing squad" and  reporter saying hes "f***ing pissed"

Oh come on...

The media lied about the polls they lied about Trump, they lied about Hillary they lied just because they are incapable of telling the truth - now somebody says - "STOP LYING!" they want to cry like they never did wet the bed, or beat their little sister...?

 

They lied - they got caught - now they can change their ways according to the new boss or they can forget getting press passes to anything important!

 

Canada has laws that says news TV can't lie - after trying to reverse that Fox news owner Rupert Murdock pulled out of his attempts to infiltrate Canada - why can't the USA (and elsewhere) adopt the same rules as Canada?
