Trump camp goes on tear against the media

Donald Trump’s campaign is on a tear against the media just as his GOP backers are urging him – again – to focus his attacks on his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
    
Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, on Sunday blamed news organizations for the GOP nominee’s difficult week, saying the press focused on a pair of Trump comments for days rather than doing more stories about the economic plan Trump announced.
    
Dominating news last week were Trump’s remark that Second Amendment backers could "do something" if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints liberal judges. He also insisted on a plain falsehood, that President Barack Obama "founded" the Islamic State group, multiple times.
    
Trump went on a Twitter rant against the press, complaining that the "disgusting" media is not showing the crowd size of his rallies and is putting "false meaning into the words I say." He also called a New York Times story Sunday about his struggling campaign "fiction."
