Keep in mind, what he's doing is... unprecedented, I believe? I can't think of another President who has done so, simply because they didn't like the coverage they were getting from them. I don't even think Nixon did that. Bush certainly didn't. Out of those two Presidents, we can certainly see who has the stronger constitution, I'm sad to say.

I think the mockery is that for the most part these guys are armchair politicians, like most of us are. It's good to have an opinion and all, but the Press get the benefit of ACTUAL access instead of, you know, stuff like Alex Jones presenting opinions as facts. But when they don't get that access, well, obviously one could take that as a sign of ...poor intent. All these Youtube guys have to do is read from the news (or, often, just once source, which feeds them their narrative, as liberals are oft guilty of), get in front of a camera and project themselves. There's little actual investigative work done. And with stuff like O'Keefe, you have to wonder as you're presented with this information, "Okay, what was left out and cut to make you feel how you feel? What's the whole picture? Did this guy REALLY blow him off when he tried to interview him, or did he call him over to BE interviewed, and then just answered all questions with his own questions like a twinkie?" which, frankly, you should be doing with all your news sources ANYWAYS, but I digress.
And remember, Youtube pundits get paid, too, and that absolutely influences their opinions, same as everyone else.
You just gotta keep in mind, if the Press didn't have access, nobody on Youtube would have anything to analyze. You'd have the President's Twitter, which for all intents and purposes is a State-run media feed, obviously highly opinionated and low on facts (in fact, quite often riddled with inaccuracies and NON-facts, something the Trump base is quick to dismiss as not important, ironic when boasting about fake news from the liberal-slated media). If Obama pulled this crap, you'd be absolutely livid, as everyone should be. It's time to admit our biases, and see from another perspective on this stuff. What's happening is NOT normal, and it's NOT okay, really.
Opinionated news isn't new in the least; hell, you saw the original Spider-Man trilogy, it's at LEAST been a thing since the early 2000s!image
that people are more sensitive to it now because, like the rest of the world and our President as a point of fact, everyone's become much
whinier since then. Even the news.
