After Washington Post reporter David Weigel posted a misleading tweet about the crowd size at a Trump rally, the president called out the media for being unfair to him.

Trump supporters see the incident as yet another example of an outspoken, biased member of the media unnecessarily picking on the president.

Weigel immediately apologized for his tweet.

And many have come out to defend Weigel. Trump has continuously attacked the free press when journalists are just doing their job.

But even Jimmy Carter thinks the media has been unfair to Trump.

"I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I've known about. I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation."

And others feel the press should be extra careful to be factual, not oppositional, in their Trump reporting.

But many argue the idea of a "war" between Trump and the media is itself a false description. The media is not inciting violence against the president. One person in this equation commands armies, the other does not.
