A University of Notre Dame professor is in hot water because of a CNN opinion piece he wrote comparing the media to the military. Professor Holt even called the media a “guardian angel” at one point. The entire op-ed is meant to make the media out to be the victim in the battle with President Trump. This is an outrage and the fact that CNN even published this garbage article is unreal!
THIS IS THE PART THAT HIT A NERVE:
“We thank soldiers for their service because they devote themselves to protecting our freedoms, and we should,” said op-ed author. But we should also thank the media for the same reason…especially when the stakes have never been higher.”
TWITTER RESPONSES TO CNN ARE THROUGH THE ROOF:
I have gone to war. I have also done journalism.
The @CNN suggestion that journalists are AT ALL comparable to those who have sacrificed for our country is the definition of narcissism.

Twitter is on fire with outrage from Americans who praise our military and know their service to our country should NEVER be compared to the media.
Professor Holt wrote about CNN’s Jim Acosta getting into a back and forth with Sarah Sanders:
“It is a sad day for democracy when the leader of the free world repeatedly calls the press the ‘enemy of the people,’ and his chief spokeswoman can’t bring herself to say that isn’t so. Yet that is what happened Thursday at a White House press briefing.”
The problem is that this is fake news being repeated over and over by the media. President Trump didn’t call the press the ‘enemy of the people’. Here’s what he said: Fake news is the enemy of the people…
The ethics professor who penned the article obviously has an anti-Trump view and his effort to equate the sacrifice of our military to CNN is disgusting. We’re with Rob Smith on this…”Get over yourselves.”
WE LOVE OUR MILITARY AND APPRECIATE THEIR SERVICE: Check out this incredible video from Sol...You’ll want to watch it over and over. President Trump has a special relationship with our military!
