MONTPELIER, Vt. --What CNN's Jake Tapper forgets is when the legacy media becomes a constant champion of the Federal leviathan doing anything anywhere; it's no longer an independent press. It becomes a cheer-leading section. 

Big Jake Tapper and his ilk have had a two-year presidential campaign to dissect and hold government accountable for it's various failure and abuse (remember those polls showing 70% of voters desiring change), but chose instead to go off the rocker on Trump - an outsider. 

Now Tapper insists - 'Oh, we're independent' - and accuses Trump of silencing the press. Trump isn't silencing the press. Wise or indifferent - even foolish - Trump is holding the press accountable.
