・ソース記事のタイトル（"Trump Has Laid a Trap for The News Media"）はやや大げさ。私は Trump が意図的に罠を仕掛けているとは思わない。ニュース・メディアの側が自分たちのパワーを過信して Trump に反抗し続けているだけのように見える。
Donald Trump is forcing mainstream media to choose between reporting on the president without overt bias or challenging him when he says something they believe is false
Given the way news has evolved since the Civil War, Trump is at least partially correct. Newspapers should probably inform readers if they are going mix editorial coverage with hitherto “objective” journalism.
Conclusion: But even the most “prestigious” newspapers are not doing this currently. As a result they are losing even more readers. This trend will continue until newspapers take some sort of definitive action. And even then it might not help much. Right now they are playing into Trump’s hands.
