I Will Be Treated Fairly Or Else: Lesley Stahl Explains The Application Of The Trump Doctrine To The News Media

The President has had a long and largely unpleasant relationship with the news media since he declared his candidacy. As in he’s been unpleasant to the news media. A good chunk of this was set early on with his penning of reporters in at his campaigns and using them as foils, as well as his successful attempts to roll the cable, network, and print news media into treating him “fairly” or receiving an “or else”. He pulled this early and successfully in the primary season with Fox News when he demanded that Megyn Kelly be pulled from her moderator duties. When Fox refused, he scheduled a competing event.

At last night’s Deadline Club awards dinner, Lesley Stahl provided a very detailed explanation of how the President has applied the Trump Doctrine of “I will be treated fairly or else” to the news media. Talking Points Memo has the transcript:

“At one point he started to attack the press. And it’s just me and my boss and him, in— He has a huge office. And he’s attacking the press. And there were no cameras. There was nothing going on, and I said, ‘You know, that is getting tired. Why are you doing this? You’re doing it over and over, and it’s boring, and it’s time to end that. You’ve won the nomination (sic). Why do you keep hammering at this?’

“And he said, ‘You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all, so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”

Here’s the video, which is set to start at the 21:23 mark with her stating what the President told her regarding how he treats the media and why:

Whether the Trump Doctrine is the result of just gut instinct or forethought doesn’t matter. Here we have a first person recounting of the President explaining it in regard to how he deals with the news media. Eventually his supporters are going to get tired of screaming “lugenpresse” at the penned in reporters at his rallies. Or telling them to get out of their country like the lovely gentleman below. Eventually one or more will actually attack and most likely kill a reporter. I certainly hope the news media has thought out how it is going to respond when that happens. Hope, however, is not a strategy.

Stay frosty!

    as I’m far from the first to observe: He never spoke that clearly or coherently. He may have spoken that second clause, never the first. Maybe “To discredit you”

    the DCCC marks Amy McGrath’s nomination in #KY06 by releasing an internal poll showing her up 15% against GOP Rep. Andy Barr. (Looks like a stretch, but I suppose national Dems want to show they’re serious about this Trump district.)

    The DCCC supported her opponent, so this is nice to see so quickly.

    Trump protests too much. New York and New Jersey papers (and not just the NY Times) were amused by Trump. Maureen Dowd spoke about how early on she covered Trump for the society pages. She still seems smitten by him and never wrote anything too damaging.

    Trump always used them, manipulated them. They don’t seem to really understand how he has neutralized them.

    @Baud: @sdhays: She is a great candidate – told at 12 she could not be a Navy fighter pilot and land on aircraft carriers, wrote her rep to complain, told to be a nurse, wrote Mitch McConnell – he ignored her. Made it to Naval Academy just as Bill Clinton said women could be fighter pilots after all. First female Marine to do it. Cute family, great voice, her mom is an MD who treats poor people, so she’s big on healthcare. I just started donating $5 a month – not much, but something. Why the DCCC didn’t back her is pure misogyny – Mother Jones story here.

    And she met with the highest-profile Democrat in the district—the popular, two-term mayor of Lexington, Jim Gray.

    “’You’re the man,’” McGrath recalled telling Gray when we met at her campaign office in April. “’You’re the Democrat in this area. Do you want this seat? Are you gonna run? ‘Cause if you are, I’ll do something else.’”

    When Gray, who had just come off an unsuccessful US Senate race, told her no, McGrath made it official.

    Then the DCCC twisted his arm and he ran anyway.

    @sdhays: trump and Connor Lamb both won by talking about defending Social Security. People want to know they, and their parents, will have a secure retirement. I think maybe the biggest gap between the Beltway (Entitlement Reform!) and real people is Social Security. George W Bush got his ass handed to him while he was still a “War President” when he tried to pass privatization, and that was IIRC during a bull market. It was the only issue (I think) Lamb mentioned in his very brief victory speech. I don’t remember hearing one pundit, even the liberals, point that out. It’s a truly bizarre blindspot among the political media.

    @Baud: The writeup I read on TPM sounded like the DCCC was impressed with her campaign and that her message wasn’t “out of sync” with the district, so they didn’t really have a problem with her. Where the DCCC has gotten involved (from what I’ve read) has been that wacko race in Texas where that stupid lady is quoted as saying, essentially, “Texas is shit” and yet trying to be the Democratic nominee there and some places in California where the jungle primary is giving them heartburn.

    That Texas lady really pisses me off. I don’t give a shit how much I agree with her platform (or even her assessment of Texas), how dare you say that and then think you can be the Representative from there? I can’t begin to understand how Democrats in her district can even consider someone that arrogant when they seemingly have a shot at taking that district as long as they don’t have a throwaway nominee.

    The DCCC has a strong preference for people who have run before and demonstrated the ability to run a strong campaign. After all, apparently Gray won the district even as he was losing to Rand Paul. Sometimes, that preference bites them in the ass, but I suspect that other times it helps – we just don’t read about it since it’s a “dog-bites-man” story. This time, it seems, that we got an Obama-Clinton style outcome – the better candidate won and she’s better prepared for the general election.

    ETA: I don’t doubt that there’s a good-old boys network that was uncomfortable with her candidacy as well.

    Couple of things which caught the eye.

    #1 – Is pushback commencing at long last. Should the Senate vote in veto-proof numbers, would that be enough of an incentive to tip the House to do that same?

    Sen. Marco Rubio said Tuesday he would push for “veto-proof congressional action” to check the Trump administration’s reported deal to save Chinese telecommunications company ZTE.

    Hours later, the Senate Banking Committee separately approved an amendment proposed by Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to remove sanctions on any Chinese telecommunications company. It passed through the panel easily by a 23 to 2 margin in a bipartisan rebuke to the administration’s possible plans. Source

    #2 – FYI, following up from an earlier comment.

    A federal court has canceled its inquiry into monitoring of attorney-client meetings at Guantánamo, and will instead permit a Pentagon review panel to tackle underlying issues that have paralyzed the USS Cole war crimes case.
    [snip]
    Now, the U.S. Court of Military Commissions Review can ask fundamental questions framed by the case judge, Air Force Col. Vance Spath. He wants the Pentagon review panel to decide his authority to send U.S. Marshals to seize U.S. citizens who refuse to appear before the court; to punish U.S. military members with contempt of court, rather than refer the question to a court-martial; and to overrule the chief defense counsel on a decision to release case attorneys of record.

    Under the CMCR’s briefing timetable, those questions could be resolved this summer, and pretrial hearings in the USS Cole case could resume — unless the civilian appellate panel once again finds cause to intervene. The appeals panel has set a May 29 deadline for court filings on the questions but has yet to schedule oral arguments.

    War court watcher Stephen Vladeck, a University of Texas Law professor, said Tuesday that perhaps the Justice Department or prosecutors “were afraid of a deep dive from that [civilian] panel at this point.”

    The Trump administration is not the first to reverse course to avoid a higher court review of fundamental questions that still linger over U.S. military detention authority in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Source

    Did anyone see Colbert’s interview with Dean Baquet last night? Colbert asked him about the NYT headline before the election, “Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia”, pointing out that the story didn’t really support the finality that the headline suggested, and the jackass went on to defend that headline, saying that “they thought they knew more at the time than they actually did”. WTF?? They thought they knew more than they put in the text of the story? What did they think they knew that didn’t warrant actually typing up? And then he had the gall to say that their subsequent reporting contradicted their own story and that they weren’t “cowardly” about pretending it didn’t exist. I guess we should thank Dean for not pulling the story from nytimes.com when it turned out to be horseshit and pretending it didn’t exist? Is that really the bar that he thinks he should have?

    The way he talks about the “invigoration” of journalism as it’s facing a potential existential crisis that it’s evidently not prepared for made me want to vomit. He’s not the only person to talk like this, but the way he talked about it – almost thanking Trump – instead of attempting a bit of self-reflection was irritating.

    I have to ask, which Joe Walsh? The one who used to play in the James Gang and the Eagles and is Ringo Starr’s BIL is pretty cool.
