Donald Trump's Attempt to Destroy Press Freedom Is Reminiscent of 1930's Fascists

By Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Facebook Page

15 May 16

 

f Donald Trump’s many fascistic tendencies, his treatment of the media -- "disgusting reporters" he calls them – replicates the tactics of demagogues since the 1930s:

1. Banning not just reporters but even publications that have covered him negatively from covering at his public events, while giving campaign credentials to extremist outlets like “Political Cesspool,” a radio show that labels itself "pro-white.”

2. Inciting crowds against the media.Trump regularly whips his crowds into an anti-media frenzy and urges his fans to boo the press pen. Hostile rhetoric toward the press is a staple of his events. "I would never kill them, but I do hate them," he said of the press in December. "And some of them are such lying, disgusting people."

3. Throwing reporters out of Trump rallies. Last weekend, Michael Mayo, a columnist for Florida's Sun-Sentinel, was threatened with arrest if he didn’t leave a Trump rally in West Boca after he entered through the public line and tried to film protesters. The campaign has reportedly begun to intersperse plainclothes security officers amid the crowd to root out anyone who is not a true Trump fan.

4. Using violence against reporters. Two weeks ago, a Secret Service officer watching over the press section choked Time photographer Chris Morris and slammed him to the ground when he tried to venture out of the media pen.

5. Threatening the media with libel. Last month, Trump vowed to make libel laws more punitive against the media if he becomes president. "I'm going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money," Trump said during a campaign event in Texas.

A free society depends on a free press. Which is why demagogues and fascists like Trump seek to destroy press freedom.

Bob, this is beneath your intellect. Really. The setup is clear, only Hillary can save us from the threat of the "new nazi's". Right.

Look here Bob, this is a progressive site in the main. This group has been weaned on Alinsky's rules for radicals. You remember, "...the threat of the object is much worse than the object itself...", "...never relent, keep pounding the fear...".

This will work on the soft headed, overwrought types but on progressives, well, you are going to have to do better than this

You said the article is a "setup" for supporting Hillary. Maybe that is an implication of it, but is there anything dishonest in what Reich is doing? The term setup and the statement that progressive aren't going to fall for it implies you think Reich is being manipulative. I think he's just telling us the dangers as he sees them.

PS Bob,

If (and I agree fully) a "free society depends on a free press", have you been living in some kind of bubble for the past several decades?

Surely you haven't spent years of your career in the Imperial City without knowing the local designation of WAPO as the "CIA house organ"? And their endorsement of near every syllable of the infamous PNAC plan?

The NYT's two decade descent into hackdom?

MSNBC, CNN, FOX "NEWS", take your pick, all corporate/MIC shills for the national security state.

Anyone victimized by Trump or his supporters has legal recourse, what recourse does JQP have against the aforementioned "media elites" spoon feeding us their highly vetted, sanitized, elite controlled messages?

If you are genuinely worried about a "free press" Bob, you are late to the game but your help will be appreciated. Turn your steely gaze on Bezos, Ailes and Murdoch. They are the greater problem.

If he were serious about keeping the media out he would have done as HRC did....turn the noise machine on the media bull pen.

Haven't Rep. candidates in the past selected the attendees to their press events? I know Bush II did, thus ensuring friendly audiences and lots of easy questions. Didn't Bush's security remove uninvited reporters too? And beyond mentioning the fact, I don't recall hearing much criticism of it. Yes, Trump seems to let his "sensitivities" run away with him; yes, he apparently allows staff to bully reporters and "people of color". Unlike most Dems., Reps. apparently can't stand up to honest questioning of their policies and views. So what else is new? OK, Trump is more immature and temperamental than Bush II; no he doesn't bother to guard his tongue at all. He is at base, just another unprepared, unknowledgeable Rep. candidate, altho with more bombast and anger than Reps. in the past. They and his unedited comments just make him like his fellows for the most part; a bit crazy and blatantly unfit to govern. Is there really anything new here? More importantly, will enough Americans have the sense to see him for what he is and vote for Clinton or stay away entirely?

I share your judgment about there being ONLY ONE CORPORATE PARTY, and that Voting for most Duopoly candidates has become a sham...
But, IMO, "staying away" ENTIRELY from the political-elect oral process will only make things more hopelessly worse.
Then again: You probably didn't mean to advocate a total withdrawal from political action, but only a withdrawal from a structurally-ri gged System...
If so, please write more on how that should be done.

Soviet Union collapsed because of censorship - instead of information there was a propaganda/lies how great Soviet Union is (and there were shortages of basic commodities).

Dear Dr.Reich, after years of media consolidation, we no longer have a free press. Someone has to come to grips with the situation of a corporate press controlled by a handful of the largest corporations. I think, in one way or another, someone, possibly like Trump has to break up the corporate stranglehold on our public and private news media. No democracy can withstand the onslaught of the corporate media. Take a look at the nightmare in Latin American countries that are unable to hold on to democracy when faced with the corporate press as in Venezuela, Brasil, Hondorous, Bolivia, Argentina and more.

I don't know why you think Trump would be the person to break up the corporate media. He is a creature of that media, lives on its adulation. He just doesn't like criticism when it comes his way. The media is fine as long as it's giving him attention and not asking any tough questions.

This is kind of like asking Adolf Hitler to reduce the power of the business elite in Germany. There probably were some Nazi supporters who hoped he would. After all, the party's name was "National Socialist." But as soon as he got power, he was fine with those elites.

The problem is that our democracy isn't working well anymore. It's not a problem with having the wrong leaders. We need to weaken the power of money so we have real democracy. We need to reform our election system in a number of ways.

Spence -
You make crucial & valid points about the deadliness-for- democracy of mainstream mass media ownership control by legally-allowed , insider/corpora te MSM monopolies.

But it's not clear to me that Trump, as a consummate insider himself in many [other] ways, is a real-enough Structural Outsider to use Constitutional anti-trust law to fight for this goal, via his presidential DOJ appointees.

Is Sanders any more reliable on this crucial reform issue...? IMO Yes, in theory -- but then I also do observe that Sanders has said almost nothing focused about this MSM-monopoly issue, in his campaign speeches

Still, I strongly sense that if Trump is elected, and the now anti-Trump MSM then starts sucking-up to him and his authoritarian principles, (which is not at all unlikely to happen), a President Trump, the non self-reflective solipsist that he is, would have no problem, at that point, with an unreformed MSM monopoly remaining-in-pl ace as a fatal feature of our currently-skewe d (pseudo-democra cy) System.

" someone, possibly like Trump has to break up the corporate stranglehold on our public and private news media"

Trump LOVES the media and the media LOVES Trump. He gives them hot stuff to publish on a daily basis... better than the "boring real news" that nobody wants to see anymore.

Trump has been playing 'bad boy' for the media for decades, but apparently nobody in the media today is capable of doing the research (so hard with the interwebnet) to find out anything about him beyond "The Apprentice" making him a "reality TV star" (according to Trump and parroted by the media).

Trump's earliest mentor when he was a horny 30 something looking to bed as many "supermodels" (according to him) was Roy Cohn. Yes, THAT Roy Cohn who went from being Senator McCarthy's right hand man to the main character in "Angels in America". Trump seems to have picked up everything he knows (which is basically "be as sordid as possible") from Roy Cohn.

It's true that journalists being roughed up at political conventions is nothing new. It happened to Mike Wallace and Dan Rather at the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968. But saying that this is nothing new doesn't make it right. Whether the Trump camp's treatment of journalists is worse than ever before is not IMHO the most important question. Instead, we all need to be aware that politicians frequently try to manipulate the media, and prevent the public from seeing them in a bad light. Objective reporting is often impaired by political organizations of all stripes.

Things cannot be so bad in America that we give our future over to this demented egomaniac (who, like Hitler, claims to express the will of the people).

BTW, I agree that there's precious little freedom of the press left for Trump to kill.

This election may indeed be a watershed in US and world history given the records and pronouncements of both of the major contenders, and there are serious issues that need to be discussed. A few people above seem to be serious and collectively seeking a way forward.

Name calling, sarcasm, speaking/writin g without thinking, claiming knowledge of future events, bickering about precisely how bad T-Rump is and why, and above all, accusing people who see any of this differently than we do of bad faith and/or stupidity, are ALL going on here. They do NOT advance the cause of seeking a better outcome than the article is about. (Remember the article, supposedly the object under discussion?)

Sorry econo, in this political season, negative emotions run the show. Promoted, of course, by the political leaders and their advisors.They give the people the permission to act badly, and they do. Lee Atwater must be smiling.

Those who thrive on emotion are the easiest to manipulate. Just tap into that “emotional gold mine” and watch! tRump is a master at it. They just react, spewing whatever they feel with no thought attached.

This blog is feeling the result of this, and recently (IMO) has suddenly become the host of “Correct the Record,” David Brock trolls. These provocateurs have no intent on sharing, learning or discussing. Their job is to be a troll and be a class “A” jerk while doing it. Just part of destroying the Bernie revolution, and get sHillary elected.

We will have to recognize it, understand it, accept it as a reality, and deal with it as best we can, as it won’t change until, a) shillary is nominated, and/or, b) the election is over in November. Perhaps then these trolls will be gone and we can get back to having a blog of real value.

Aside from this I agree with you completely.

The media of today or should I say he journalists/rep orters has down graded to a profession I would be ashamed to say I was part of if I was in it. There is a gross lack of integrity. Most have sold there souls to the dictates of the corporations . For a high level of integrity today, we need Dan Rather and the very few of his caliber. Need I say more. Corporate censorship runs the media. If they do not conform to their wants, they destroy you. If you happen to be a

We actually have more than one story overlapping here…

First and foremost, we have a man who has the mentality of a TEN-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLYARD BULLY running as the Republican nominee!

Trump has HIS OWN version of how the world works! He's NOT grounded in the same reality that you and I are, because he's never HAD to be; he takes 'spoiled rich kid' to a whole new level!!!

Part of that 'spoilage' is thinking that EVERYTHING has to be about HIM, the way HE wants; that INCLUDES his relationship with the press! He DOESN'T understand that the MSM ISN'T all about HIM; it's about what SELLS!

When the MSM sells Trump, they're 'good'; when they show that Trump ISN'T 'all that', they're 'bad'!

That's it.

Trump, of course, WANTS the MSM to keep selling him, so he gives them what they CAN sell!

It's a symbiotic relationship; both sides are happy.

But when the MSM starts showing that the Trumperor Has No Clothes - i.e., prints FACTS that DON'T fawn over The Donald - that symbiosis disappears, and Trump gets pissed.

Which, of course, means that they're 'unfair', etc., and so, he has to get TOUGH with them!

Since this Child of Privilege (or spoiled brat) HAS to be the Master Of His Domain - which explains a LOT of why Trump is the way he is - EVERYTHING has to be HIS way!

Because of that, he should NEVER be allowed to be President!
