Why were the WaPo and the NYT world-renowned, respected news outlets and the minute Trump arrives on the scene, they're fake news?

Looks fishy.

    The following compares trump to/with

     dictators:

    1) They exaggerate/falsify election results.  

    2) They turn the public against media outlets that oppose them.

    3) They repeatedly lie to the public.

    4) They blame the immigrants/groups.

    5) They call anyone who opposes them an enemy.

    6) They appoint family members to high positions.

    7) They keep their personal finances secret.

    They are still world renowned and respected. Trump however, is not and is an embarrassment.

    It would be fishy if that were true.  The NYT and WaPo have been called out for peddling left-wing propaganda for years.  Trump just gave a name to it.  

    I've provided a YA search of NYT and filtered for Politics.  There are ones going back to 2006 just on the first page.

    They’re still respected. Just because reality is not to Trump’s taste doesn’t make it any less real...

    They have always been biased and lying to you. Now they have just stopped pretending to be unbiased.
