With the appalled clamor rightfully growing around Trump's evident disdain for and misunderstanding of the notion of a free press, his infamous "off-the-record" cabal at Trump Tower with corporate media stars, and their grovelling subservience to the new cramped parameters of their rights, we offer a chilling Exhibit A: As Trump left the "failing" offices of the New York Times Tuesday, he was roundly booed by members of the public waiting in the lobby. CBS' inexplicable report: "Donald Trump is greeted with cheers as he leaves meeting with the New York Times." Really?!? We need Orwell now more than ever: "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

UPDATE: Donald Trump is greeted with cheers as he leaves meeting with the New York Times
