The Trump-Media War heats up....

http://money.cnn.com/2016/11/18/media/donald-trump-shinzo-ab...

It's starting to look like a Nixonian-style presidency.

They cover him so honestly. What did they expect?

You mean, they didn't censor Trump and discourage Trump from being Trump?

Nobody who actually appreciates Lincoln for what he was and did would juxtapose him with Trump while applying the praise Lincoln paid to US Grant.

I don't actually appreciate Lincoln for what he was and what he did. I don't know anywhere near enough.
Trump however did fight a long bitter demanding abusive election campaign. That his actions durring it show him as unfit for office is beside this point.
IMO he is a dangerous shit. And a fighter.
However this doesn't mean you are wrong about the juxtaposition. I don't know enough.

Here are two quotes from the article:
Quote:
Japanese government provided a video of the meeting, which in the eyes of the press corps amounts to government propaganda.
Quote:
CNN has not used the Japanese video release.
This doesn't seem right. The photos and videos should be shared by the press. Obviously Trump/Abe didn't let the press sit through the meeting (nor should they). But why would/should Trump/Abe give the press more access, if the press won't even share that which has already been provided??

Is this just sour grapes, or does the press think they are taking a moral position by not sharing information unless it can be collected in the way they feel it should be collected?

Note: A photograph of a national leader speaking to another national leader is not propaganda. It is news.

. seem possible that the Japanes GBe have a different culture to yours and that perhaps in their culture this is clearly government prop. I'm not sayong this is the situation. Just that your declaration doesn't seem to allow for the Japanese having a diffetent culture got that all wrong - it's a powerplay by US media to force Trump to give them interviews IMO.
