ABC News Analyst: Trump’s Selection of Questions from Conservatives Shuts Down the First Amendment

A lot of accusations and allegations hurled at President Donald Trump by the liberal media. The latest one? Liberal media members are upset that Trump is selecting questions from conservative-leaning media outlets and is freezing the liberal media out. ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd [1] said Trump is shutting down the First Amendment by not taking “antagonistic” questions from the media:

Following today’s presidential press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd took note of the outlets that President Trump called on today and in his past few press conferences.

Dowd added this afternoon that Trump is “shutting down part of the First Amendment by not taking questions that are going to be any way antagonistic in this.”

He thinks the president will be content to rely on his Twitter feed and “very cozy press.”
