During an interview on Newsnight, journalist Asra Nomani warned the media was over stepping the market in its treatment of the Trump administration and any one who tried to debate its policies.
Mr Trump and his new administration have fought frequent battles with the press. Mr Trump regularly describes the New York Times as "failing" and has branded other news sites as "fake news".
Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal and Washington Post reporter, has previously defended Mr Trump and said liberals and the left betrayed America.
She told presenter James O'Brien: "“What I’m fundamentally seeing happening in our press in the United States and in our discourse around so much related to the Trump administration is the vilification of both the Trump administration and anybody who might say that there is any rational discourse to be had about the administration and its policies."
Asra Nomani condemned the media's 'rabid' attacks on Trump
We have a sacred duty as journalists to not have malice and to not have this kind of rabid hatred, that I do see expressed
“That’s what really concerns me as a journalist,” she said going on to detail a number of attacks and slurs against the president and his team.
She continued: “We have a sacred duty as journalists to not have malice and to not have this kind of rabid hatred, that I do see expressed."
“The Washington Post, just a couple of weeks ago, wrote a feature piece in which they said Donald Trump was an ignoramus – this is not the kind of language we expect from the media.
“The media, from the social media which is very important, Facebook and Twitter, to the legacy media, has engaged and participated in unfortunately what I call a hashtag intifada, that is happening in America.”
Nomani has also written books on reforming Islam and has argued in favour of increased government surveillance operations in the fight against Islamic terrorism.
The media has been lambasted on many occasions by the President for its coverage, with Mr Trump often tweeting out critiques early in the morning.
The media has responded with harsh criticism of its own with a number of organisations publishing scathing articles about the president and much of his team – with key adviser Kellyanne Conway often under fire.

Kellyanne Conway has frequently clashed with the press
Fox News presenter Sean Hannity, one of Mr Trump's biggest supporters in the media, has also sounded the alarm on an alleged media bias, rushing to the aid of Ms Conway.
He recently told Ms Conway, who helped turn around Mr Trump's flagging election campaign: "I’ve seen you on media appearances and [this is] just my own thoughts – that if somebody was a liberal and a woman and treated in certain circumstances the way you’ve been treated, I think it would be news."
