CNN’s Jim Acosta, who Trump attacked last week during a press conference, stated on Wednesday that the White House is intentionally calling on friendly media outlets and intentionally seeking “very conservative” outlets in order to avoid difficult questions about the controversies clouding over the early days of his administration.
“In the last three news conferences, Wolf, all of the questions to the American news media have been handled by conservative press. I think, Wolf, there’s no other way to describe it, but the fix is in,” Acosta said. “This president does not want to answer questions, critical questions about his associates, his aide’s contacts with the Russians during the course of that campaign, just as his national security adviser is being run out of the White House on a rail.”
He added: “They may think this is being cute, or being strategic in trying to shield the president from questions, but those questions can only be shielded for so long.”

Trump and his team have deliberately been dodging questions that matter.
The big controversy lately has been dealing with Michael Flynn, who spoke to Russia government officials about doing away with Sanctions that were put there by President Obama.
Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody alluded to the Trump campaign’s connections with Russia, but did not attempt to dig further into Trump’s knowledge of the communications or the ongoing investigation. Instead, he asked if “some of those events with those communications to Russia would hamper the nuclear deal.”
Trump has had a feud with multiple media outlets that don’t agree with his agenda, calling them “fake news.”
A country where a man doesn’t believe in free will, controls his country, and controls the media isn’t a democracy, it’s a dictatorship.
