Another week, three more media tussles on the Donald’s resume.
The latest occurred on Thursday when Trump tweeted criticism against “failing” and “dishonest” Politico.
.@politico, which is not read or respected by many, may be the most dishonest of the media outlets— and that is saying something.

For the record, Politico isn’t “failing”: the website grew revenue by 25 percent in 2014. As far as what story peeved the Donald, he didn’t specify, so the political website took a stab guessing.

The story featured the headline: “Trump Momentum Shows Signs of Stalling” and looked at Trump’s somewhat sliding poll numbers.
But a day isn’t complete with only one media spat–how about one more for good measure? Trump also lashed out at New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin for reporting on half-empty seats at Trump’s South Carolina rally.
This is not to mention Trump vs. Fox 3.0, which has exploded this week after Trump again fired off nasty tweets against star Fox anchor Megyn Kelly. This prompted Fox to cancel his appearance scheduled for Tuesday with Bill O’Reilly, which must of infuriated Trump because he subsequently announced a boycott of the network.
As TheWrap reported, network chairman Roger Ailes and Trump will break bread–or each others’ necks–next week in a sit-down meeting to hash out their differences over Fox’s coverage of the real estate mogul.
