The threats against press freedom are especially disturbing considering that Parscale will help to lead Trump’s re-election effort, and the president himself has already floated revoking credentials from journalists who report negatively on him. In May, Trump called the media “corrupt,” implying that any stories that don’t favor his administration are patently false.
Maybe it is time for Jim Acosta to get a suspension for breaking protocol. He continues to embarrass himself and @CNN. Pull his credentials for each incident. https://t.co/WHC9nlIo75 — Brad Parscale (@parscale) April 2, 2018

The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 9, 2018
