Even though President Trump didn’t mention Fox in his latest unhinged tweet, I suppose it’s fair to call Smith an honorary “enemy of the American people.”

Update: I took some heat recently for pointing out that Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon had once called himself a Leninst. But Lenin himself referred to his opponents as “enemies of the people.”
Is it a stretch to detect Bannon’s Leninist influence here?
Further update: As a former newspaper reporter, I’ve always liked this scene from the movie “Deadline USA.”
Whenever journalism is under attack, I find comfort in this clip from "Deadline USA." Highly recommend: pic.twitter.com/XoeE98Hklv
