Media bias, not Trump, shatters public's trust

September 10, 2018 |

The Trump-hating faction of the media (which is only about 90+% at last tally) is arguing that while the “insider” books and the New York Times op-ed attacking Trump may be full of anonymous sources and easily-debunked factual errors, the sheer mass of nasty stories about Trump should be enough to undermine public trust. But it isn’t making his supporters desert him. Why?

If a powerful news outlet can find 1,000 so-called experts to tell us that the sky is green, that doesn’t make the sky green, especially when we can all look up and see that it’s blue. They can harp at us every day that President Trump is a volatile, incoherent, crazy, dangerous, incompetent dementia sufferer – in fact, that seems to be Stephen Colbert’s only job these days – but we watch Trump give hour-long off-the-cuff speeches and see the incredible gains made in job creation, economic growth and renegotiation of trade deals, while North Korea is willingly denuclearizing, and we can see with our own eyes that the sky isn’t green. 

The media have destroyed their own credibility, first by being subtly biased, then by cheerleading for and protecting Bill Clinton, then plainly worshipping Obama, and finally, openly renouncing even the phony veneer of objectivity, declaring it their duty to do anything necessary to elect Hillary and defeat Trump. And now, they wonder why, after two long years of them crying wolf in unison about Trump every day, so many people no longer listen? 

Congratulations to the mainstream media for finally managing to completely destroy the public’s trust. Except they’ve destroyed the public’s trust not in Trump, but in themselves. 

At the link, a great article by a real Washington insider who’s seen the sort of “anonymous expose by a ‘senior’ official” sneak attacks under two different Republican Administrations, and who explains exactly where these disgruntled whiners come from and why anyone who really understands what’s going on simply ignores them.

    The MSM & anti Trumpers have no idea why Trump supporters are not believing them. We do not desert Trump because we liked his message & he is delivering on his promises. They criticized him so much in the beginning and dissed Trump supporters and are now surprised that we do not listen to them.
    You don’t call a group of people deplorable and then try to convince them someone they believe in is who truly is stupid?

    Mr Huckabee, you are one of a handful of people I believe. God bless you!

    You are right, the media have destroyed there own credibility! And just in case we forgot, Obama has done the same think. His speech in California last weekend made us remember how he and the Democratic Party can't be believed.

    I get discouraged when I see these reports. Not that Trump is all perfect. There are still parts of the economy not working-due in large part to the massive drug addiction problem we have. That is caused by Big Pharma with FDA approval of death dealing drugs unfortunately. I say this because I've worked in the field. I follow God's Word: we all need to get on our knees and pray that God will move in a mighty way bringing conviction and repentance. We're like in Nehemiah's day who was opposed by agents of the Devil to oppose God's work in Israel.
