Dictators don't get started by criticizing the media. The majority of Americans have a negative view of the media. Does that make all of us dictators?
Instead dictators get started with a media that hysterically showers them with praise
That defends every one of their illegal actions
That calls for them to even have more unilateral power
That is incapable of reporting anything negative about them
America just survived one of those. His name was Barack Hussein Obama.
The media defended his illegal actions, showed endless praise on him
and attacked his critics.
That is how dictators get started. Americans chose to undo the Obama-Media dictatorship. That is what the media is mad about.
A free press only protects democracy when it is free, in the sense of
representing a range of viewpoints, not when it willingly panders to
abuses of power by one faction, as the media does, while waging
unrelentling war against the other.
