Trump Again Calls The Media The "Enemy Of The People" (VIDEO)

Today while speaking to a staunchly conservative and thoroughly pro-Trump audience at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Donald Trump launched into an all out attack on journalism. Trump raged against reporters, unnamed sources and "fake news" describing them as "the enemy" of the American people.

In the same breath he used to pledge his allegiance to the First Amendment he also spit on the freedom of the press it promises...

"A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are — they are the enemy of the people the fake news media doesn't tell the truth.

Trump went on to say that he believed reporters should not be allowed to use anonymous sources, claiming that he was "going to do something about it."

Trump, though it wouldn't become apparent until later, did not elaborate on what that "something" might be.

Regardless, the crowd lapped up his attacks.

It was the latest in a series of Trump and his administrations attacks on the media that are obviously designed to undermine the public's faith in them due to their coverage of his seeming endless reports of chaos, incompetence, impotence and potential wrongdoing inside his administration.

Trump first made the media "enemy" claim a week ago in a Feb. 17th tweet...
