The practice of not naming sources is also common for journalists who wish to protect the identity of the sources or allow them to discuss information freely. Trump has also frequently gone after The Washington Post and its owner, Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon. He reportedly urged the postmaster general to double shipping rates for Amazon amid claims the company is hurting the Postal Service. Trump’s renewed criticism of the media comes five days after a gunman opened fire at the office of The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., killing five people. Police said the suspected shooter, Jarrod Ramos, had a long-running dispute with The Capital Gazette over a column about a criminal harassment case against him. Ramos, 38, brought a defamation suit in 2012 against the paper, but it was thrown out by a judge. However, critics have warned that Trump has stoked animosity toward the media since hitting the campaign trail in 2015. He frequently derides the press as “fake news” and has called media the “enemy of the people.” In the wake of last week’s shooting, Trump said journalists should be “free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job.” The president on Tuesday ordered flags be lowered to half-staff to honor the shooting victims. He reportedly declined the request to do so at first. Trump on Monday went on to defend his habit of capitalizing certain words in his tweets, saying he does so for emphasis.
