“… Trump is absolutely aware of how eager the news media is to bring him down. … he has made … ‘Fake News’ his number-one nemesis. …. When indictments against Russian nationals came down last week for interfering with the election, it came with the caveat that no Americans had any knowledge of it. Even so, many in the news media could not admit there was no evidence of collusion and move on. Instead we heard about what still might be coming, or that allegations of obstruction were alive and well. Perhaps most importantly, the media badly confused Trump’s claims that there was no collusion and that Russian interference didn’t tip the election to mean he claimed there was no interference. Once again, in their eagerness to condemn Trump, he played them. * * *  Perhaps this constant vetting should convince news outlets to move more slowly and cautiously. … news consumers must be careful …. We need to watch the news more like we watch ‘Ancient Aliens’: open to fascinating facts and details but always highly skeptical of grand conclusions that feel more real than they actually are.”
