    So many things shot through my head as I read your post, David. In no particular order:

    We need to hope that the people who own the media outlets continue to pay reporters to do their work. The owners may benefit so much from their stocks in banks, oil and gas companies that will shoot to the sky in value because this administration will remove all restraints on them that they won't want to ruffle Trump & co. feathers.

    Presidents not wanting intrusive media around is nothing new. President Bush was accused of picking and choosing the reporters allowed at his conferences. If one asked pesky questions, "OUT!" That's why I was surprised when President Obama, who spoke about transparency, wouldn't, at first at least, allow photographers to shoot their own images. Papers were given stock shots--take it or leave it. Heard this at an AP conference and wrote about it at the time. I have no idea if this is still true.

    When a President pontificates, his fans believe what he says, no questions asked. We've seen this about this one for sure. So what if he repeats false info about, for example, the danger of immunizing children--which he did during one of the debates. He isn't affected by it. What impact will an ignorant person in this role have on the country and on children? Corrections tend to land on page 12 [if a paper is lucky enough to have that many]. Think that Lester Holt, Scott Pelley et al will have a nightly "Corrections" segment?

    Controlling the news from the White House like this is yet another dart on the board pointing to dictatorship. And he's worried about Americans losing their jobs? How many White House correspondents will continue to be paid when all they have to write about is handed to them in tidbits 140 characters long?
