    I’m tired of President Trump vilifying the journalistic integrity of mainstream media, calling every article and opinion he doesn’t like or that is critical “fake news,” while at the same time granting credibility to conspiracy theory sites such as Infowars, run by self-avowed “performance artist” Alex Jones. (And I may think Alex Jones is a vile liar of a human being, but still recognize his First Amendment right to say the dangerous and ridiculous things he says.) For the President to make comments about pulling the license of a news source he disagrees with is unacceptable and a threat to our democracy. I question every day how Republican members of Congress can live with themselves in remaining silent as their party’s president trashes the Constitution and Bill of Tights and every value, principle and ideal our great nation was founded on. It’s shameful.
