According to a story in themrcblog.com:
Western Journalism reported that though O’Reilly said that Trump’s social media prowess has been beneficial to him so far, he also thinks the president needs to “tweet facts … not insults” going forward. O’Reilly offered this advice in an oped he penned for The Hill in which he remembered warning then-candidate Trump that the mainstream media would eventually attack him personally in opposition to his agenda.“I don’t think he believed me because, at the time, he was getting an amazing amount of television news coverage due to the fact that his presence brought ratings. Back then, he and the CNN crew were almost buddies,” O’Reilly said. “While ratings drove the ‘all Trump, all the time’ TV exposure, there was also a wish fulfillment factor. Some leftist journalists wanted Trump to win the nomination, figuring Hillary Clinton would wipe him out in the general election.”
The former Fox News host added that when Trump won the election, media resentment commenced and the “resistance” movement began.
“There are two levels to the hate-Trump media movement. First, the national press corps largely believes he is not qualified to run the country and his flamboyant personal style offends the media elite who consider him to be a vulgarian,” O’Reilly said. “The second level is pure ideology. Under President Obama, the United States lurched left in a dramatic way. Political correctness became the order of the day, and conservative thinkers were branded racists and bigots simply for opposing liberal policies.”
“Tweet facts, Mr. President, not insults. Hammer your opposition with verifiable statements,” O’Reilly concluded. “Do that, and you may ultimately prevail against a press that often abuses its freedom.”
