Let's look at some hard left media new headlines to cover their ass after claiming Trump was a treasonous Russian agent for giggles.

Did the media botch the Russia story? A conversation with Matt Taibbi.

“In purely journalistic terms, this is an epic disaster.”

Russians always knew there was no collusion

Mueller report: Collusion by the news media, not Donald Trump, but don't expect apologies

We may someday need a press we can trust. But I hope not, because we certainly don’t have one. The drummed up narrative of collusion has now imploded.

Enemy of the people? Hmmm...Let us continue.

German media detractors felt vindicated by the perceived lack of mainstream coverage of the 2016 New Year’s Eve sexual assaults in Germany. Most media outlets ignored the mass assaults by North African migrants and only started reporting on them five days later, after a wave of anger on social media made covering them unavoidable. The delay in reporting on the incidents lead to accusations that the authorities and the media attempted to ignore or cover up the migrant attacks to avoid criticism against the asylum and migration policy of the Merkel government.

Is the press the enemy of the people

They openly attack half of the people and ignore antisemitism and censoring half the country, so there's that.

or the guardians of Democracy?

Mass Democrat Party propaganda isn't guarding democracy. Creating pseudo events isn't freedom of the press. Destroying the media's credibility helps no one but the bought off government they are supposed to hold accountable.

Your problem being that Hitler tried the exact same tactic of attacking the press on a daily basis in order to convince the German public that the vile Nazi propaganda he was selling was a viable alternative. Indeed, fascists like yourself have actually been caught chanting the same phrase used by Hitler to describe the press (i.e. "lugenpresse") at Trump rallies. You are literally Hitler. See:-

Donald Trump supporters use Nazi term to abuse journalists

Hitler didn't attack the German Nazi press. He attacked the foreign press. He used the German Nazi press as his own personal propaganda machine.

You can't even decide which argument to go with.

So show us a Trump rally where they are chanting "lugenpresse".

Oh, and it gets even better...

Let's take a peek, shall we?

German-speaking Marxists such as Karl Radek and Alexander Parvus vilified "the bourgeois lying press" as part of their class struggle rhetoric.
