One of the criticisms levied against Donald Trump by his opponents is that he treats the mainstream news media with contempt. He has routinely ridiculed major news organizations like CNN as ‘fake news’ and has even refused to take questions from them at times. Is Trump right in treating news media the way he has treated them so far?
The answer to that question is a resounding ‘yes’. Let me tell you why.
Mainstream Media – Liberal Echo Chamber
The biggest misconception about mainstream media is that they are objective. Nothing could be further from the truth. News channels are and have always been liberal echo chambers. It becomes easier to understand once you compare the way they are treating Trump now with the way they treated Obama for the past ten years.
Media Cover-Up of Obama’s Mistakes
This is just the tip of the iceberg. The list of Obama’s gaffes and mistakes is endless, yet our news channels were praising him like he was the second coming of Jesus.
Media’s Unfair Criticism of Trump
Now, contrast this with the way the media has relentlessly targeted Trump over the past few months and you will get the whole picture.
The list goes on and on. The fact is that Trump has been maligned, defamed, and ridiculed unfairly ever since he became President. They peddle fake news about him on a 24x7 basis and expect respect in return?
For the first time, we have a Republican President who treats liberal media with the contempt they justly deserve. Let’s just hope the trend continues!
