‘You’re Fired’: Trump demoted to entertainment

The Huffingdon Post has declared that they will not put coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in the Politics section of their website. This show of media power is a reminder that in the run up to the Presidential campaign, politicians must be wary about their cooperation with potentially powerful journalists.

This follows several posts in news outlets such as Politico and CNN who have been debating over whether or not Mr Trump’s campaign should be taken seriously at all.

This writer's quick sketch of the temper tantrum (possibly) being held at Trump Tower at the moment...

Editorial Direction Danny Shea said “Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you’re interested in The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on The Kardashians and The Bachelorette.” Trump’s spokesperson has hit back at critics by saying: “Those that question his qualifications are probably unqualified to be journalists themselves."
