As you know, the Trump administration released a set of rules following the controversy over Jim Acosta’s press pass:

NBC News’ Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt tried to make that case about who those rules REALLY hurt:
Can we just underscore here that these rules are yes about reporters but they are really about YOU — voters — who can’t all be at the White House and who rely on us to get YOU answers. These rules are restraining all Americans’ ability to get answers from their government https://t.co/A7u11gFVBk

The MSM’s mission is just to deliver Americans the truth? People have thoughts about that:
You spent 8 years fluffing Obama so don’t you DARE say you people have ever represented me. You sold every lie he told as truth and went after ANYONE who dared question his actions…… https://t.co/VbjRkqtWVV

The Obama years were in general an embarrassment of media lapdoggery. But wait, there’s more:
due process for some guy up for a job? not so much.
due process for us, the media: the most important thing on earth. https://t.co/AruWNUVzjY

You read now-discredited allegations against Brett Kavanaugh live on national news as if they were fact. https://t.co/wsnOR1HVfC

But they only report the truth… or something.
Dear Kasie: So why won't you get US answers when the Democrats are in power? Instead, we get Brian Williams going on happy-talk burger runs with Obama. https://t.co/UCHVaLOyMp

The worst part is that, to a great degree, the media can’t see it.
Good point especially when there was so little pushback after Obama wiretapped AP and sent DOJ after Rosen.

There is a reason why an overwhelming majority of the American people don’t like the media, and it’s because they don’t buy this no matter how many times you repeat it, for good reason. https://t.co/703StvmFml
