Even after the humiliating beating the mainstream media took with Trump’s victory, they’re still spinning yarns and trying to act like they have any credibility left.
Yesterday, I received a breaking news alert on my phone from CNN. The alert, which appeared across the top of my cell phone screen and gave off three short, powerful vibrations, wasn’t really breaking news. The alert essentially reported that it was “like a knife-fight” within the Trump administration’s 2017 Transition Team.
With a wildfire tearing across Georgia and daily protests that devolve into riots springing up against the mere possibility of a Trump presidency, this is the best the mainstream media has to offer us? An unsourced, anonymous allegation against the Trump admin that they want us to take as fact?
Last night, CNN was baffled that Trump ate dinner. David Martosko reported that the president of the White House Correspondents Association called Trump’s actions “unacceptable”.
I don’t think the Establishment or the White House has gotten the memo quite yet:
Mainstream media – you’re out!
How dare Trump try to get a private, reserved moment after fighting in an extreme, unparalleled election season – how dare he! The only people with that train of thought are the pundits, not the people who voted Trump. There is still a blatant disconnect between the media and the populace – the pundits just don’t get it and I doubt they ever will.
Speaking of pundits, Julianna Goldman of CBS Evening News ran with a fake story about the Trump team requesting top-secret security clearance for the Trump children. President Trump took to Twitter to say that this claim was false and that the report was just another “typically false news story”. By now, Donald Trump is used to media bias and lies – just another day in the life.
Already, the mainstream media has begun to say that Trump is going back on his campaign promises. They’re telling us definitively: the wall will never be built, no one will be deported, jobs will not come back, the Washington swamp will not be drained. It’s been a week. It’s apparent that the media is flailing and desperate, stricken into full-fledged panic mode. It will only get worse as we get closer to Inauguration Day.
In their panic and desperation, it’s easy to see why the mainstream media has willingly glossed over a few “minor” details. For instance, they’re surprisingly silent about how they colluded with the Clinton camp. They’re choosing to ignore the fact their credibility evaporated as soon as they decided to become the mouthpiece of the corrupt D.C. Establishment’s propaganda machine. Citizens, however, will not ignore that; instead, they will remember.
The media empathizes with the paid protesters taking to the streets and with the violent, dangerous leftists attacking citizens for voting Trump. Instead of allowing anything to warp their narrative, they warp news and events to fit their narrative.
The mainstream media may have taken a huge blow but they still haven’t been defeated.
They’re still broadcasting lies and misinformation in an attempt to sway support of Trump. The mainstream media hasn’t changed – instead, they’re going full-steam ahead to Inauguration Day, spewing bias and lies to anyone still willing to listen.
After Trump’s decisive victory, I’m not so sure many people are still willing to listen. The jig is up – people are aware of the bias and desperation and won’t be turning back to cable news after the shameful display they exhibited going into election day.
Plainly, the people spoke. Now, the Establishment and lamestream media have to listen. We cannot allow ourselves to become complacent when the real uphill battle is just beginning. There’s much work to be done in the next four years and with enough energy, it can be accomplished.
