As promised, today’s work at TPC:
The mass, mainstream, slanted, biased, dishonest, yellow, establishment, corporate media has become the American equivalent and embodiment of Grima Wormtongue – slithering, slinking, whispering, and lying – ever misleading the just and the honest for the benefit of other masters. Some, tiring of the deception, bluntly call it what it is: fake news. This doesn’t sit well with Fake News, Inc. To wit:
Marjorie Pritchard, of the Boston Globe, made an impassioned call for editorials “denouncing what the newspaper called a ‘dirty war against the free press.’” And I, as your C.F. Floyd Feature Writer of National Affairs, hereby answer the call!
Estimates indicate that around 100 newspapers, large and small, will respond this week. Reckon TPC as number 101, kind of. Alas that I cannot denounce a war, dirty or otherwise, against the free press as such simply does not exist. Rather, consider this my part in the free war against the dirty press.
This all started with a Tweet from the President back in February. (Actually, it started years ago with the corruption of the mainstream media, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves). Tweeted Donald J. Trump: “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”
I felt this dissent important enough to forward to someone. My recent email:
Hon. Donald J. Trump

Dear Mr. President:
First, thank you for all that you do for America and for our beloved freedoms.
Second, today I understand that some 350 establishment newspapers, large and small, feature editorials excoriating you and your defense of the free people. This being done under the false guise of defending the “free press.” Some are even making claims about the First Amendment, apparently having lately discovered the Constitution. In doing so they prove they are not only the enemies of the people but organized and coordinated enemies. They prove they can offer nothing except Fake News.
Consider my column at The Piedmont Chronicles, http://www.thepiedmontchronicles.com/2018/08/perrin-lovett-one-of-many-free-war.html, editorial No. 351 (or 101 per original estimates). It is markedly different than the others.
Some of us – MOST of us – stand with you and your mission. While cheering your election I did maintain some differences with you here and there concerning policy. And I still do. However, my understanding (and appreciation) is now clearer as to the total scope of your work. In short: MAGA!
Thank you again for all that you do. May God bless you each day and may God bless America.
C.F. Floyd Writer for National Affairs, TPC
Perhaps a press club invite shall come forth?
