— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 3, 2018 The president has previously attacked the media for using anonymous sources. He claimed last month that The New York Times made up the existence of a source after the individual had given a White House–sanctioned briefing to multiple reporters under the condition his name not be used. Such conditioned briefings are common for the White House and agencies. The practice of not naming sources is also common for journalists who wish to protect the identity of the sources or allow them to discuss information freely. Trump has also frequently gone after The Washington Post and its owner, Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon. He reportedly urged the postmaster general to double shipping rates for Amazon amid claims the company is hurting the Postal Service. Trump’s renewed criticism of the media comes five days after a gunman opened fire at the office of The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., killing five people. Police said the suspected shooter, Jarrod Ramos, had a long-running dispute with The Capital Gazette over a column about a criminal harassment case against him. Ramos, 38, brought a defamation suit in 2012 against the paper, but it was thrown out by a judge. However, critics have warned that Trump has stoked animosity toward the media since hitting the campaign trail in 2015.
