KISS Frontman PAUL STANLEY: 'Journalists And The Media Are Not The Enemy Of The People'

KISS frontman Paul Stanley has said that he does not believe the press is the enemy of the American people, presumably in response to President Donald Trump, who has regularly derided the media as such.

Stanley offered his opinion in two separate tweets, writing: "JOURNALISTS And The Media Are NOT The Enemy Of The People. Without the opportunity to hear all points of view we can't find the truth. Those who want to silence opposition and questions or turn the public against them ARE The Enemy Of The People And Of [email protected] @FoxNews"

He added: "Because ALL media coverage of politics is clearly biased now, we should accept that EVERYONE is participating and NOBODY is innocent. THAT is all the more reason we need to hear it all."

Trump has consistently attacked the media throughout his presidency and called the press the "enemy of the people." He also regularly accuses reporters of spreading "fake news" — his term for stories he dislikes. In addition, he has assailed the news media at rallies and even at more formal presidential events, encouraging his audiences to chant "CNN sucks!"

In a speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Kansas City, Missouri last week, Trump slammed the news media for its reporting on his trade policies and other issues.

"Stick with us. Don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news," Trump said. "What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening," he added.
