Now this same Mainstream Media which gave nothing, but a free pass to the previous administration is engaged with Democrats in a campaign to smear the current administration and perform a coup against the American voters. What else do you call an ongoing effort from the Mainstream Media to report the news in such an obviously bias and dishonest fashion. The current administration has received record amounts of negative press despite economic indicators that the economy is poised to break 4% GDP growth for the first time in over a decade.
A recent study by the Media Research Center found that from inauguration to April 9th the coverage on the Trump administration was 89% negative. This is quite a swing from the previous “scandal free” administration which was actually full of scandals, but the mainstream media was complicit in their lack of coverage. No the case for Liberal media bias is so convincing that even long term Democrats are beginning to notice, but at almost 90% negative coverage it would be hard to miss it.
You ever watch a video online and have to double check that it is not fake. I was watching video from MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with anchor Lawrence O’Donnell and I began to wonder if maybe the first successful brain transplant had been performed between O’Donnell and Alex Jones. If you have read my blog for any length of time then you know I have issues when mundane events are explained with overly complex and dramatic conspiracy theories because while they can be entertaining they are just lazy thinking in the way that they hammer square facts into round story holes.
President Trump promised on the campaign trail that we would get sick of winning. Well I certainly have not bagged my limit yet and every little win is especially sweet as I watch the Left either ignore it completely and not report it in mainstream media or utterly meltdown. Either way the truth will ultimately get out because even the media cannot hide everyone’s 401K and pay raises from them. The job growth numbers were pretty weak, but it looks as if this was impacted more by weather and one month does not make a trend. President Trump will get a lot of leeway for his reelection if the economic numbers keep climbing and because liberal tears are sweet like wine.
On the day that several news sources all confirmed that Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice was the person responsible for the unmasking of American citizens in intelligence reports, one has to wonder why so many of the left leaning media outlets refused to run the story or worse set out to report the story in a manner to downplay its significance. Many “so called journalist” like our buddy Don Lemon even went as far to lecture their viewers on why this was a non-story and immediately went right back to the Trump – Russia well.
Evelyn Farkas a former Obama administration Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense gave a March 2nd interview to Morning Joe’s Mika Brezezinski. The topic of their discussion surrounded The New York Times article which described the Obama Administration’s mad scramble to uncover and disseminate information that they felt would be damaging to the incoming administration in the waning days of their time in office.
And here you have it. In Koppel’s world view most Americans are unable to tell the difference between opinion journalism and what he considers fact based journalism. The problem is many of the mainstream media organizations have been agenda driven for many years. I can watch Sean Hannity and I know exactly what I am going to get out of his show because he is upfront and unabashed about his conservative viewpoint. He never calls himself a journalist.
