Last week, Cavuto said that while some of the media’s complaints about the Trump administration are important, there is a lot of unhinged “rage” going on in the press that prevents many from being fair.
He made it clear that Trump “doesn’t much like me,” but Cavuto went on to observe, “This over-the-top negative media response to what he does––well, that’s not right or fair.”
There’s a reason the media is trusted LESS than a president whose approval rating is in the low 40s at best (see Latest Poll Shows Even Democrats Are Tired of Media’s Anti-Trump Bias and New Poll Shows Americans… Trust Trump More Than Media).
But Cavuto’s broader point is true: some of the media’s complaints about Trump ARE valid. Note that I wrote “some.” Because some of the “Russia stuff” may be “problematic” (yes, now I’m using their words). Also troubling are some of Trump’s administration’s anti-First Amendment actions. Plus you’d have to be a total sycophant to not hold Trump somewhat responsible for ObamaCare repeal going down like Michael Moore forced to eat a plate of kale.
Real stories get buried and second guessed because of the media’s proliferation of bullshit aka “fake news” that no one gives two monkey craps about. The press runs any anti-Trump thing they hear with no vetting whatsoever. Hellow pissing Russian prostitutes. Just keep it over the tile, no carpet, okay?
The day after one of Trump’s “fake news” rants, the Associated Press – the FREAKING ASSOCIATED PRESS – ran a fake news story, thus validating Trump’s “fake news” rant and further cementing in people’s minds how corrupt the media is. So when there are actual stories to cause concern, the people chalk it up to fake news. Can you blame them?
Try sucking less, MSM, is all we’re saying.
