President Trump held a news conference yesterday that’s being described as epic. He confronted the reporters there from CNN, ABC and NBC, but had the most dialogue with the CNN reporter, who was openly hostile. The others were as well but the real juicy exchange was between Pres. Trump and CNN, when he repeatedly said that CNN posted False News, meaning lies, and preached hatred. He nailed the CNN reporter repeatedly for lies and spewing hatred, and I thought the guy was going to blow a gasket, he looked so pressured up.
It was great to watch. Pres. Trump went on and on about the dishonesty of the press, and the thing is, he’s right. Our media is no longer a source of news, now it’s almost all propaganda and lies, false stories, misrepresentations, unsubstantiated reports, twisted facts and just as often, no facts at all.
In the aftermath of that news conference, CNN and the others are whining that Pres. Trump has “reduced the prestige of the media” by speaking out about their hateful propaganda. I have news for the News, they have no prestige to lose, they’re like Madonna or Lady Gaga having prestige with the Pope, you can’t act like foul-mouthed idiots and be respected for your opinions.
Sooner or later the MSM is going to have to come to terms with the reality of majority public opinion. Of course there’s always a market for smears and lies with some people, but if you want to be on top, you have to be liked by more people than any other.
It’s like the American Nazi Party. Some guy who’s in it tried to get me to see things their way and join up, because he claimed, wrongly, that they and I share a similar view or two. The membership of the American Nazi Party has very few members, probably a couple hundred at most, because their ideas are unpopular with everyone except deranged homicidal maniacs. Nobody else likes them.
The MSM and especially CNN is going farther to the Left all the time. I see them as Fascist, which is what the Nazis were, and they deserve far less than the low third-place rating that they have now.
It’s long past time a President of the United States called them out for the harm they’re doing.
WOOPS, UPDATE… Trump just said that the failing media, “nytimes, NBCNews, ABC, CBS, CNN, is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”
