Related: Lady GaGa Caught In The Middle Of Kesha & Dr. Luke's Drama! He wrote to the pop star in 2010: "I know you said you looked like a lesbo but I disagree ― you looked radiant and beautiful. You're doing exactly what you're meant to be doing right now. You're actualizing your dreams. I'm proud of you and love you very much. xo L" Hmm. This doesn't necessarily undo the negative comments though... But the most damaging email chain comes from 2012, in which two of Kesha's managers, Ken Levitan and Jack Rovner , suggest the singer should "blame" Luke after tweeting about how she was "forced" to sing certain lyrics in Die Young . Levitan wrote: "You really need to say something to rani...or tell her to blame it on luke." This. Is. Exhausting. We're coming on the third anniversary since this legal drama started. If we've learned one thing so far, it's that we apparently can't handle the truth. [ Image via Instagram . ]

The staff had one advantage as they aimed to manage candidate Trump’s media diet: He rarely reads anything online, instead preferring print newspapersespecially his go-to, The New York Times — and reading material his staff brought to his desk. Indeed, his media consumption habits were on full display during his roller-coaster news conference this past Thursday, when he continually remarked on what the media would writetomorrow,” even as print outletswebsites already had posted stories about his remarks. The White House did not respond to repeated requests for comment. Trump is also, however, a near-nonstop consumer of cable news, and his staff’s efforts were not always enough to keep Trump from tweeting on topics that were far from his campaign’s core message. Throughout the campaign, whatever messaging the candidate’s staff had planned was continually accompanied — and often overshadowed — by a string of feuds that played out both on and off Twitter.

In a scathing ten-minute monologue on Late Night host Seth Meyers went in on the latest news from President Donald Trump. The host covered everything from his meatloaf dinner with Chris Christie to his comments on uranium at Thursday's press conference and his weekend rally in Florida when he seemingly referred to an act of terrorism in Sweden the night before, which saw the President tweeting later that he was in fact referring referring to a Fox News report on rising crime in that country. As he does so often, Trump transitioned from claiming that the media makes up fake stories to making up his own fake stories, Meyers joked. For example, in defending his executive order banning refugees, he made this mysterious claim about an incident that supposedly occurred on Friday night in Sweden . Meyers then cut to an excerpt from the rally.

The fantasy of a democratised communication has given way to all kinds of abuse, including misogyny and death threats – and trolling by Donald Trump I like to go on Facebook and moan to friends about how awful Twitter is these days. There is neither rhyme nor reason on Twitter; just a lot of shouting by folk in a semi-aroused state of permanent outrage. Then there are the trolls – some of them “journalists” – roaming the Twitter plains for a reaction, and usually getting get it. Many of these are people with posh names, liberal-baiting sayers of the unsayable – the “unsayable” generally just being routine racism, sexism and idiocy. Attention is their choice of lubricant, and we really should not provide it. Then of course there is Donald Trump, who while tweeting on the toilet gives us direct access to his … brain? Policies? Night terrors? Or maybe he’s just devoted to giving us the pure stuff that the media would inevitably lie about. Continue reading...

Lawmakers of both parties routinely complain about news coverage, but defend a free press. Many recoiled from Trump’s words. “This is something that you hear tin-pot dictators say when they want to control all of the information,” said Representative Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, on ABC’s This Week program. “Of all the things he has said since he became president or since the election, this to me was the most devastating and the most alarming. That he essentially views the First Amendment [to the Constitution], because that is what these organizations represent, as an enemy of the people. Republican Senator Ben Sasse weighed in by tweeting portions of the Bill of Rights guaranteeing free speech and freedom of the press. Others sought to downplay the controversy. “I see President Trump expressing his opinion, rather forceful in his own distinct way,” Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky said on This Week.
