Just The News: Combative Trump pivots to new media strategy to counter negative coronavirus coverage

President Trump’s unusual coronavirus press briefing Monday included what appears to be an unprecedented video presentation: a three-and-a-half-minute montage of news clips defending the president’s coronavirus actions.

The video was promptly dismissed on CNN as “propaganda” and “disinformation” on MSNBC, with both networks breaking away from the livestream so they wouldn’t air it live.

When asked afterward why he felt the need to show a video to promote his administration, Trump told White House reporters, “Because we’re getting fake news, and I like to have it corrected.”

David Bossie, president of Citizens United and deputy campaign manager for Trump’s 2016 campaign, told Just the News that the president is rightly frustrated with coronavirus coverage.

“Since the day the president announced his candidacy for president, the biased liberal media decided they were going to try to destroy him,” Bossie said. “There’s always been bias in the media, but Trump has really exposed it. The liberal media’s hatred for the president has exposed the fact that so many of these so called journalists are political activists who work for media corporations that are closer to Democrat Super PACs. I’m glad the President has upped his criticism of the press.”
