When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president, most members of the media and political pundits didn't take his candidacy too seriously. Fast forward to present day and Trump is the new president-elect, and he appears to only have a few friends left in the media.

Following several cabinet appointments and recent reports that Russia hacked the election in favor of Trump, the media has been critical of the former host of "The Apprentice." These issues were discussed during the December 14 edition of "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News.
