Hey media who call Trump a major threat, WHERE is your outrage over what Bill de Blasio just said?

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio unloaded on News Corp. and its efforts during the 2016 election that he says led to Donald Trump becoming president.

He was a guest with Brian Stelter on CNN.

Here’s what he told Stelter:

“There is no Donald Trump without News Corp., I firmly believe that. He never gets to the presidency because he would have never been elevated the way he was consistently for years and years,”

He continued his thoughts post-interview on Twitter.

Tragically @BrianStelter, NewsCorp fostered the hatred that threatens journalists and public servants alike. That wasn’t created by the Left

The mayor of the largest city in the U.S. says a news organization fosters hatred and makes the lives of millions of Americans more painful.

But Trump is a dictator because he says fake news.

And @BrianStelter, the lives of millions of Americans have been made more painful because of NewsCorp’s agenda. We need to acknowledge that

Good thing those in the press have an even-keeled response to Trump’s criticisms of the media.

De Blasio also attacked Fox during the interview, and it’s important to note that News Corp. does not currently own the Fox News or Fox Business networks.

He knows News Corp doesn’t own Fox News, right? https://t.co/JTnehJa6bc

Anyone who believes that News Corp. is the reason Trump won the White House was not paying close enough attention.

Anyone count how many times Trump called into CNN and MSNBC during the primary? https://t.co/iiCa8wHo0i

Where is the Jim Acosta tweet about how harmful this type of comment is to the free exercise of journalism in New York City?

Where is the New York Times editorial decrying the city’s mayor for having such a hostile attitude toward those who cover him?
