The mainstream media has been no friend of Donald Trump, but he’s found allies in news organizations such as Breitbart, who have, for the most part, covered Trump in a fair, often favorable way. It’s for that reason that many were surprised by allegations that Michelle Fields, a reporter for Breitbart, claimed that she was assaulted by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski at a recent Trump campaign event.
Of course, allegations of press roughhousing has been brought up before, most recently by a Time Magazine photographer, but considering the leanings of the organizations making the accusations, it was doubtful that it would have any negative impact on the way they covered Trump. After all, how could it get worse?
Now that the campaign has targeted a conservative news outlet, however, people are paying attention.
