Opinion | Dear media: The Trump White House has total contempt for you. Time to react accordingly.

On Saturday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer shocked the news media by reading them a prepared statement in which he accused the press of deliberately minimizing impressions of Trump crowd sizes, before saying:

“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe.” 

This was absurdly, preposterously false, but then top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway defended it yesterday by saying that Spicer had merely provided “alternative facts.” Meanwhile, Trump himself accused the press of lying about his crowds while pointedly noting that he and the media are in a “running war.”
