The futurist and physicist talks about mankind's next giant leap.
From dubbing media outlets “fake news” to sharing memes of network logos being physically harmed, President Donald Trump’s attacks on the press have been … aggressive.
None of his efforts have been successful at quieting journalists in the U.S., who are protected from the president by the First Amendment, but denouncing news outlets has influenced some repressive regimes around the world to follow suit, jailing and threatening journalists.
As the president continues to question the integrity of the press, how much damage is that causing here and abroad? And, how much does President Trump’s attitude toward journalists reflect a growing lack of trust many Americans have in the press overall?
