OnPoint on WACH Fox: Mainstream media and President Trump
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) - On this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH Fox we examine the relationship between the mainstream media and President Trump.
At the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, comedian Michelle Wolf roasted President Trump, his staff and the Republican-led Congress before an audience of journalists, politicians and celebrity guests.
Many say the jokes weren’t just good-natured ribbing, but rather an assault of hate-filled partisan jabs.
Afterward, there was abundant criticism that the spectacle illustrates why many people don't trust the media to be fair and impartial, especially when it comes to President Trump and his administration.
The fallout from the White House Correspondents' Dinner has many journalists reflecting on how they are perceived by the Americans whose trust they want to earn.
