If the mainstream news media really are interested in truth, then here’s a painful truth for them: they brought on their disreputable image themselves. They’ve long been biased, but with the rise of Obama, they became cheerleaders, practically turning press conferences into opportunities to shine his shoes with their tongues. Then in 2016, they dropped even the pretense of being objective. They declared fairness and journalistic objectivity to be as passe as button shoes, and not only became out-and-proud campaigners for Hillary Clinton, they attacked everything Trump said and did, 24/7,with a hair-on-fire intensity that’s managed to make one after another formerly respected “journalist” look like a candidate for the funny farm.
You want to know why Americans don’t take your constant attacks on Trump seriously? For the same reason we don’t seriously think that circus clowns are cleaning up the spotlight with a mop. Trump didn’t ruin your reputations, you beclowned yourselves. Kyle Smith of the New York Post tallies just a few recent examples of why your reputations are as tattered as Emmett Kelly’s pants.
I should emphasize one detail, as a warning to the anti-Trump media: the issue of the alleged fashion magazine Teen Vogue that goes full-boor SJW and is guest-edited by Hillary Clinton will be the last ever to hit newsstands. Its print edition is going away and dozens of staff members are being let go, for some mysterious reason.
