Emphasis mine:

The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?

The stat is totally bogus (see link above), but the point is clear: Trump has finally admitted that “fake news” is just news that doesn’t praise him.

Since taking office, Trump has always sent a clear signal to reporters: speak highly of me and it will take you places, criticize me and you’re dead. However, this mentality has long existed amongst other conservatives who believe in the “all of the mainstream media is liberal” conspiracy theory. If it’s not pro-conservative, it’s anti-conservative, they implicitly state. How is that much different from what Trump believes?
