‘Forget the Press, Read the Internet’: Trump Advises Supporters To Ignore Mainstream Media


During his rally in Colorado earlier today, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that the press cannot be believed, so it is best not to read anything from them. Instead, it is best to just “read the internet.”

“Forget the press, read the internet, study other things” Trump told the crowd. “Don’t go for the mainstream media. Most of them, good news, most of them fortunately won’t be around much longer.”

Trump also said that he gets a “lot of honesty from the internet,” as if the internet was once singluar source for information.

There was a decent amount of reaction to Trump’s comment today.

Trump is now in Las Vegas as he prepares for tomorrow’s presidential debate, the third and final of the election season.
