Well, because FOX News tells him that's how he needs to think, but ultimately it is about the real media calling him out and holding him and his apologists accountable when they lie.

This is a hilarious exchange where one of his supporters has his lies about Trump's economy exposed on national TV:

Yes, Trump has always been in lock step with Fox News. It really is a strange world you live in.

Yes, Trump has been in lock step with FOX and this is obvious to anyone who has paid any amount of attention. Mediamatters points this out all the time. FOX says something ridiculous and then that same day, sometimes minutes later, Trump tweets it as if it were something he came up with on his own. Other times he just flat out admits he's being told this dumb ____ by Hannity or FOX and Friends.

Many (possibly most) of Trump's tweets as president can be explained directly as a reaction to what he was watching on TV at the time. It's actually quite disturbing, but us adults in the room are trying to nervously laugh it off. I hope somebody is compiling a master-list of this somewhere.

Trump has some core Fox shows that are full-on propaganda for him that he exists in a mutually reinforcing, symbiotic relationship with. "Fox" acts as a short hand for that instead of Shep Smith and other sporadic bouts of criticism.

Maybe Trump's opinion of the media has been influenced somehow by that same media?


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... ude-taylor


Lurid Trump allegations made by Louise Mensch and co-writer came from hoaxer
-> Mensch and Claude Taylor tweeted details of criminal inquires that didn’t exist
-> Hoaxer who fed information said she acted out of frustration over fake news
-> Taylor issues mea culpa on Twitter after being approached by Guardian

Irrelevant to the fact that Trump has been whining about fake news for years and he has been bitching about the leaks from his own administration proving that the leaks are real and not hoaxes. The dossier isn't based on fake news, and Mueller is looking into it which has Trump and his ilk nervous as all get out. Virtually everything that has been said and claimed about Trump via leaks since his election victory have been vindicated or supported by subsequent leaks. But hey, FOX isn't reporting on any of this so it must be fake news. They're too busy hosting idiots who were fired from Google.
