Donald Trump recently announced on social media that as the Republican nominee he has decided to ban The Daily Planet from covering his presidential campaign events.
Donald Trump recently went on Facebook saying, “Based on the inaccurate coverage and reporting by both Lois Lane and Clark Kent of the record setting Trump campaign, we are hereby revoking the press credentials of the phony and dishonest Daily Planet.”
After recent reporting by both of the Daily Planet’s star reporters, Lois Lane and Clark Kent on many of the off-color remarks and bold statements made by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee and business man has decided to fight back by controlling access of certain members of the press at his campaign events and political rallies.
Trump went on to also post the following on social media, “My campaign no longer feels compelled to work with a publication which has put its need for ‘clicks’ above journalistic integrity.”
Trump then went on to specifically single out two of the Daily Planet’s most well known and respected reporters Lane and Kent, who have covered the campaign since Trump began running for president saying, “That Lois Lane is a real piece of work and spews blood at me out of her mouth, her eyes, and her . . . where ever! And don’t get me started about that overgrown boy scout boyfriend of hers Clark Kent.”
Republican nominee Trump continued his social media rant against the Daily Planet’s reporters saying, “That Clark Kent sees and writes about everything from the perspective of a far left liberal and a socialist sympathizer. He would help Obama create the next communist party if he could. And have you seen the things he has said about my friend Lex Luthor? It’s just incredible to me how we allow publications to say whatever they want. It’s just incredible and it’s got to end!”
While the Galactic Enquirer has yet to be banned from Trump campaigns, many newspapers and news organizations worry what this says about the Republican nominees position on the first amendment right to free speech should Trump become President of the United States.
Donald Trump does not have to like the media and can indeed hate some members of the press, but should remember that a free press is necessary for the functioning democracy we all want.
