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.
