Well here's a disturbing new Ipsos Poll:

- 43% of Republicans think the president should have the authority to shut down news outlets for "bad behaviour"

POLL:

- 48% of Republicanss think the media "is the enemy of the American people"

- 23% of R's think Trump should shut down mainstream news outlets (CNN, WaPo, NYT, etc.)
The good news? 85% of Americans agree “Freedom of the press is essential for American democracy.”

and 68% say “reporters should be protected from pressure from government or big business interests.”

There's bipartisan support for both of those things.
