The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

For the President to criticize news media in no way restricts Freedom of the Press. The media remain free to report whatever and however they like.Furthermore, Presidential criticism of media is normal. E.g., Presidents Obama and Clinton criticized Fox News and Rush Limbaugh from time to time.
