President Trump again escalated his self-declared war on the media, while speaking at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, on Friday.

President Donald Trump: “A few days ago, I called the fake news the enemy of the people. And they are. They are the enemy of the people, because they have no sources. They just make them up when there are none.”

That’s Trump, speaking the same day the White House took the unprecedented act of barring The New York Times, CNN, Politico, the Los Angeles Times, the BBC and several other news organizations from an off-camera briefing known as a gaggle. Several right-wing news outlets were allowed to attend, including Breitbart, The Washington Times and One America News Network.

    • It is about nuclear news. However, the operative word there is “news”, and the revolution in news media has big repercussions, when it comes to reporting about nuclear issues. Perhaps you haven’t read our top item on the home page, which explains this. And – asks the question: What does it all mean for us, writers and readers who seek genuine information?
