Trump literally has indicated he wants to change the libel laws to go after people in the press he doesn't like. He said this on the campaign trail to thunderous applause. This first press conference has done little to convince me that winning the election has made him any more sane.
He has openly referred to specific outlets that have run negative stories about him as "fake news" and refused to take questions from them.
Not much we can do about it now, but I wish more people could have seen the writing on the wall before this buffoon was elected. The "wait and see" approach you seem to be self-righteously championing will become less and less tenable as time goes on and is actually harmful to resisting the bullshit that is likely coming on the horizon. All indications are that he and his administration have very little interest in freedom of the press, and any idiot could see that. How that could or will manifest itself remains to be seen, but as of right now Trump has a loaded gun to your head. "I'll protest when it happens" is like saying "I'll move when he pulls the trigger". Good luck with that. If that makes me an "alarmist" so be it.
