According to Jim Stinson of LifeZette, the Trump team is fed up with fabricated news so they’re preparing an aggressive operation to fight and defeat the liberal media. Stinson writes:
The White House appears to be preparing for a grueling, sustained conflict.
But not with North Korea. Instead, the White House is prepping for a major counteroffensive against the U.S. news media.
The first sign of a new White House strategy to fight back against hostile press coverage came after a Washington Post story that made serious allegations, using anonymous sources, that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner met with Russian officials and asked about a “back channel” to discuss Syria with Moscow.
Unlike other recent reports on Russian collusion hysteria, the Trump team did not sit idle and allow the story to dominate the day unchallenged. Shortly after the story was published, Fox News published a story of its own, citing administration officials, that contradicted the Post report. The Fox report suggested the Russians, not Kushner, suggested a back channel.
