Trump's attacks on the media has its roots in Ukraine...........

A parliament member of the Party of Regions (the political party Manafort helped create) brought forth a law that lowered criteria for what created libel.

It was put forth but withdrawn. Read the article & decide for yourself.

from the article:

"It instaured severe sanctions against any act of defamation and attacks against dignity and honor. As for information published openly in the media , penalties were up to 1.500 times the Ukrainian minimum salary and up to 3 years in jail."
