GOP candidate Donald Trump has made no secret of his disdain for the media, which has been a large part of his appeal to voters who are tired of the pervasive liberal bias. He had security escort Univision anchor/amnesty activist Jorge Ramos from a press conference for being disruptive, and, according to some, he turned his audience against a young, female reporter in a rage by calling her out in the crowd.

According to some speeches, Trump estimates that 75 percent of the media is “absolute scum.” At a rally tonight in Grand Rapids, Mich., though, he made it clear that he’d never have them killed. Putin, maybe, but not Trump.
