New Rule: If you're the media, any claim by Trump will need multiple source verification

There's a reason why Steve on the corner with the sign the world is ending next week for the past year now is not a meteorologist, there's a reason why Walid Shoebat is not considered an expert in national security, and there's a reason why you don't call up that 13 year old kid (or 31 year old conservative) who claims to be an ex-navy seal and is coming to find you to commit grievous assault on you for news on the technology circuit.

They're not reputable and they're not experts.

With Trump's long train of false statements and the whole "he's just trolling you" with his coming storm remark, he is clearly in that camp above.

There is nothing forcing any media organization to cover any item by or of Trump or his cohorts at all.

Now it's time to make a request of the media, if they want to be viewed as reputable, then any claim that is made by a member of the Trump administration and they plan to include it in a news cycle at all, then they need verification that that the claim was made and that it is accurate.

The Trump administration may have destroyed the credibility of the executive branch and the respect for the Oval Office, but there is a real chance for a real media to rise from the ashes.
