HomePolitical NewsReporters Cry That Trump Controls Agenda With Twitter Mike Vance January 4, 2017 Mainstream media reporters cry that Trump controls agenda with Twitter. This started when Trump forced the GOP to not weaken an ethics panel. He went to Twitter to criticize the move of weakening an ethics panel. With all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog, as unfair as it — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017 ........may be, their number one act and priority. Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance! #DTS — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017 Reporters Cry Eric Lipton of the times was the first to started the crybaby fest. Trump sets agenda every morning with exaggerated/false/destabilizing Tweets, and then we all write about them, letting him own the day. Why? — Eric Lipton (@EricLiptonNYT) January 4, 2017 Dave Weigel of the Washington Post chimed in also. Tweet stenography is a cheaper and more reliable source of clicks than original reporting. https://t.co/MU6zI6rpZH — Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) January 4, 2017 Maggie Haberman of the Tiimes added her two cents. This. Was. The. Whole. Campaign. https://t.co/v4tEaEKVaX — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) January 4, 2017 David S. Joachim of Bloomberg agreed with Eric Lipton. Precisely, precisely, precisely. Can we stop now? --> https://t.co/EESngTPM1O — David S. Joachim (@davidjoachim) January 4, 2017 Brian Stelter or CNN has been complaining for months that Trump controls the agendas. He does admit that the coverage would be the same if Obama was releasing this tweets instead of Trump. He also says that Obama could take notes from Trump. If Obama's press releases were similar to Trump's tweets, then the press would cover the heck out of them. As it stands now the press releases get almost no coverage. We will see how the media adjusts, because things are going to be very different for them. It is going to be four or eight years of them no longer controlling the left-wing agendas that they are pushing. Either way, it is very obvious that Trump has taken a great deal of power away from the media by using Twitter as he does. What do you think about Trump's use of Twitter?
