Have you noticed how symbiotic the relationship is between the President’s popularity and that of main stream media? They are joined at the hip. When one plummets down in favor, so too does the other. Neither side appears to learn anything from these temporary setbacks.

I have a hate for the msm that is not healthy, but is completely justified.

The left doesn’t employ logic or reason. Feelings and intentions are what matters. Setbacks are expected, and run off them like water off a duck’s back. The left is ruthless and relentless.

“news networks” like cnn, msnbc, nbc seem to have a liberal agenda.
Then they show the news that fits their narrative.
They lie for and cover for the obammy criminal machine.
Trust? ya gots to be kidding right?
Brian Williams etc? Nearly as smooth a liar as is obammy./

I grew up on CBS, ABC, and NBC and spent some fifty or so years on these stations. Well, they might as well be channels XYZ, because now I never watch any news except Fox.

For a long time it has not been “News” but has been effective propaganda.

Although there is still some “news” being broadcast in the dinosaur media, news is arguably an obsolete term in the dinosaur media. PC propaganda probably wins more advertising dollars in that media.

Regardless the economic losses they might incur, America’s wealthy must begin purchasing and controlling the major media. The medium is the message and the message is the future! To fail to do this will doom the country!

I'm convinced that some of these journalists will require nothing less than Julius Streicher therapy before this is over.

“I’m convinced that some of these journalists will require nothing less than Julius Streicher therapy before this is over.”

Agreed, and it may be more like most, instead of some.

I vote “no confidence” only because they didn’t have the option of “lies to me all the time about everything.”

I find TV news as being somewhere between a bad sitcom and a mediocre late night talk show monologue.

Public confidence in television news is at an all-time low

The networks doesn't give a hoot nor a holler about public confidence.

The networks have an agenda different from truthfully informing the public.

Their agenda is to push multiculturalism, race, class, gender, abortion, atheism, and sexuality.

The goal is to destroy the Constitution and to transform the US into a socialist, one-party society.

It does not matter the MSM. They know that not reporting the news that hurts the bad guys makes most Americans ignorant. And ignorance is all Socialists and Liberals need.
