Trump News

Donald Trump is clearly watching cable news and then tweeting about it, from a tweet about violence in Chicago to another about Fox News and CNN inauguration ratings. Aides are reportedly worried Trump watches too much TV.

Trump has sent aides over to Voice of America, raising concerns about what might come of that. There are also growing concern about the Trump administration's distortion of facts and figures, with economists fearing skewed unemployment figures to come.

Charlie Warzel outlines how the right built an "alternative fact" media universe to help grease Trump's rise to power. Alexis Sobel Fitts notes that conservative news purveyors are increasingly turning to Facebook Live to report directly to audiences.

A number of journalists have been hit with felony charges after being arrested among rioters at the inauguration.
