Trump is different from predecessors in dealing with media attacks

Hedrick Smith:

So, What Is Trump Hiding?

Fifty years of reporting has taught me that presidents attack the press only to cover their tracks.
Just in case those writing op-eds for the NY Times didn't notice it during the campaign, Trump is a counter puncher.  He does not stoically absorb the blows.  He hits back at those who attack him, be they political opponents or media opponents.  If he feels he is being attacked unfairly he will let everyone know.  It is not about having something to hide.  It is about not accepting the premise of an adversary who is trying to destroy him politically.

In doing this, Trump is not being paranoid.  His political opponents and many in the media are out to destroy his presidency.  They have openly admitted it.
