OK, media; War you wanted, war you got

We told you in September that the publicís trust in the news media is at an all-time low of 31 percent, according to a Gallup poll. I suspect that if you took another one today it would be even lower. And while it may be true that Donald Trump has had something to do with that, itís only because heís brought out the fullness of the behavior that proves just how untrustworthy they are.

“They think they can take him down now, just as they thought they could take him down during the campaign. It failed then. It will fail now. No one is listening to them.”

All my leftist freak acquaintances believe every word they see and hear from Big Media.

VooDoo works on people who believe it is real.

Same for the media. Republicans were afraid of the press because they believed the press could hurt them.

President Thump has shown that the press are a paper tiger.

Don’t let them define you, fight back, create your own image and narrative and the press is all but impotent.

Do we really need the media we have today.

Fake news and often not even fake news posing as news.

We need to do a Nancy Reagan and just say NO to: ABCNNBCBS, NPR, the Ny and La Slimes, WSJ and Compost, Slime and Newsweak and lot of Faux shows.

Why wasn’t the “Excerpt” check box selected? This is only a few lines from the article...

He proved that the media do not have the influence they want everyone to think they have. And for them, that is terrifying.

It should be. When Cain says "everyone" here he is including the media themselves. They made a bad choice between truth and influence and ended up losing both. Or more accurately, they feel the latter slipping away and don't know what to do about it. They can't stop Trump from communicating on his terms, and that means their role as information gatekeeper has just gone the way of the buggy whip.

I can’t read that rag on ANY of my devices. No wonder they have to pimp excerpts, their screens assault you with so much crap you can’t even find the first sentence.

Too bad, there’s some good stuff there, sometimes.

Ouch.....

The MSM did it to themselves.

They have no one to blame but themselves.

Tell them what you think. I found the Fox News Sunday (Hissy Chrissy E) twit-page and told ‘em Trump’s not their problem, we’ve been calling them”enemedia” for years.

They seem to be clueless that their inability to accept Truth is what put them into the position where all they have left is an ever growing litany of lies - they are helping their own demise....More Winning !

Mainstream journalists are like Communists, some are good, some are bad.

The good Communists are the dead ones.

The establishment Republicans were too busy padding their nests and scr#wing the public that they didn't want anyone rocking that boat.

The arrogance. They think they can campaign for Hillary, and then expect Trump to treat them like royalty. They have made journalism into a guild where only those who go to their school and drink their Kool-Aid are allowed to be journalists.

Since I work internationally I have many foreign people ask me why does the USA permit the media to report lies. They can understand how is this allowed. All I can tell them is our freedom of speech allow the media to say what ever they like without fear of reprisal.
