Never Pick A Fight

With someone who buys ink by the barrel.
An old news maxim that you can’t win fighting “the media."
Trump hasn’t learned this yet, and may not, but let’s hope he and his press minions sober up.
Case in point: attendance at the inauguration.
Aerial photos and other evidence show conclusively his was far less than Obama’s but new White House press secretary Sean Spicer insisted the “truth” was out there, and The Donald  won.
Professional  journalists do NOT estimate crowds---ever. They get someone else, more qualified to do so and attribute the size to them. Most DC events are overseen by the National Park Service, and crowd estimates usually come from them...NOT individual reporters.
Spicer should know this...he may not be long for this world.
To the rest of you...viewers, listeners, readers, this advice:
Fasten your seatbelts, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!!!
I'm just sayin'...
