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

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
