On one hand, it's often good to have information about governmental goings-on available for the public's assessment.

To be fair, the media has to compete against Trump's twitter feed. Trump can scoop them for stories, thanks to his direct access to classified information and his power to legally/accidentally declassify it.

If the media discovers a national secret and DOESN'T report it, then Trump will report it and get all the precious likes and subscribers.
