Outrage in Waukesha

Editorial by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Donald Trump's outrageous presidential campaign was built on the brilliant use of free media — especially cable television, where the line between news and entertainment often blurs. But there has long been a dark underbelly to Trump's relationship with the independent working press. His disparagement of reporters is a set piece at rallies. He made fun of a disabled journalist. He called for change to libel laws because he doesn't like to be criticized.

Wednesday in Waukesha, that relationship hit a new low: His campaign used public servants — sheriff's deputies, no less — to harass a reporter for The Washington Post seeking to cover a rally for Trump's running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
