As we reported earlier, Donald Trump slammed the door on a CNN reporter’s question during a press conference. According to the Vox book of constitutional freedoms, that was a devastating blow to the Founders’ vision:
Trump refusing to take a question because the outlet wrote a negative story is the beginning of the end of freedom of press.

Where to start?
What part of the Constitution states the president or anyone has to talk to the press? https://t.co/S0KtUvfmmm

You’re an idiot. That organization can still write whatever it wants. Trump doesn’t have to talk to them. https://t.co/YBKuxWtsIL

I can't decide if this shows more ignorance about the 1st Amendment or the history of the press in the U.S. Too close to call. https://t.co/tMObx4B5SZ

Get back to us when he doesn't allow them to write any story they wish. Until then you're still an imbecile. https://t.co/InNFu0ItEm

And then there’s the “negative story” aspect:
"A negative story." Yep, that's what it was. Not a fake smear. Just a negative story. Smart take, Vox. https://t.co/mAAv467kov

They wrote a negative story that was baseless. Why let fake news outlets ask you a question if they're just going to spin the answer? https://t.co/fOVMnZE9px

@AdamBaldwin You know she knows the difference, just ignoring it. She is a testimonial for the problem the press has right now.

I'm not defending Trump but considering the blatant media bias these days you shouldn't be surprised when people get fed up with it. https://t.co/QBWD6PU8P9

"Negative story" is liberal code for "fake news" https://t.co/bo0RYGoprn

@feministabulous No, when Obama declared Fox to be not a "real news station" and had his admin boycott it was, sweetheart.
