The first step toward fascism: repression of the press

Yes, in yet another unprecedented move Trump has summoned TV executives and anchors to Trump tower. He continually complained about the bad coverage he's been getting, meaning when the press tells the truth and Trump looks bad then it is their fault. And they better stop it or they won't get access. In the linked story the reporter talked with some in that meeting. The general consensus was that Trump is the same guy who campaigned and continues to be "totally inappropriate" and "fucking outrageous."

This is exactly how press repression begins and along with it other steps on the road to fascism. I know, some still think this is exaggeration, that it can't be that bad. The same people who were saying that after Trump's appointees and a host of other reprehensible behavior since he started this campaign. Time to wake up folks.
