POTUS bans certain elements of the media to limit their effectiveness; should the media muffle #45 in retaliation and ‘fade him to black?’

The position of this editor is to stay on course — keep scrutinizing #45 and his administration. That’s what journalism is supposed to do. Removing the harsh light of scrutiny from government permits the abuse of power. Journalism was meant to check that! I understand the notion to “black him out,” take away “his” platform,” but it works both ways. While media exposure may massage 45’s ego on the one hand, he hates the press holding him accountable on the other. That’s why he attempts to diminish it by calling it “fake.” News is “what happens.” The fact that the POTUS labels certain elements of the news presentation, fake, is in itself an UNPRECEDENTED news story.
