Trump’s political advertising

constitutionPresident Trump on Monday released a triumphant campaign advertisement declaring his first 100 days in office a success, and branding news media that have reported otherwise as “FAKE NEWS.”–NY Times

This is astonishing–I don’t remember a politician trying to substitute advertising for news. This is close to government control of the news. Trump’s interest in changing libel law to allow him to sue news organizations over news he doesn’t like is equally chilling. Government control of news is a distinctive mark of dictatorship.

    I’m not sure Trump knows enough to be a dictator, but he could be another puppet, like Geroge W.
