  • Chuck Todd Can’t See It’s The Media’s Fault Americans Don’t Trust Them

    The Federalist ^ | SEPTEMBER 14, 2018 | Saritha Prabhu
    Chuck Todd’s recent article in The Atlantic was an insult to the intelligence of those of us who are ordinary voters and avid media consumers. He blames conservative media and their stars for the unprecedented distrust and credibility problems mainstream media outlets face. That’s right: he thinks millions of Americans loathe and distrust the national press solely because Fox News, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity regularly—and falsely, in his opinion—tell their viewers about the bias in national media. He is being either clueless or dishonest, and it might be a bit of both. Let me explain some of the many...

    My first reaction to the anonymous anti-Trump op-ed in the New York Times was perhaps unusual for a resident of the swamp, which has been so hyper this week: I chuckled, rolled my eyes, and didn’t even make it to the end of the article before losing interest. It probably helps that I spent the week in Colorado and Utah, where seemingly no one cares. In the conversations in which I have participated or overheard, this subject has come up zero times. Muted televisions in airports and hotel lounges, which still carry CNN and its angry commentators out of habit,...

    RUSH: President Trump has just unloaded! He just continues to unload on CNN. He is unloading on all the social media. CNN, meanwhile, standing by its false story about the Trump Tower meeting. In fact, they’re now lying about lying about it. CNN has compounded the lie.The president yesterday tweeted, quote, “CNN is being torn apart from within based upon their being caught in a major lie and refusing to admit the mistake.” That was tweeted last evening by the president. “Sloppy Carl Bernstein, a man who lives in the past and thinks like a degenerate fool, making up story...

    President Trump ripped CNN President Jeff Zucker on Twitter Thursday morning, saying that network’s ratings "suck" and Zucker should be fired, amid heightened rhetoric in a feud between the president and the news channel. “The hatred and extreme bias of me by @CNN has clouded their thinking and made them unable to function. But actually, as I have always said, this has been going on for a long time,” the president tweeted. “Little Jeff Z has done a terrible job, his ratings suck, & AT&T should fire him to save credibility!” he wrote. Trump then targeted NBC and MSNBC Chairman...

"I'd say on the Republican side they got exactly what they wanted, a guy that was going to shake things up. Look, I think one of the best things going in Donald Trump's favor-- we know this-- is the mainstream media. I hate to say it. I know I'm sitting on a Meet the Press...

    Townhall.com ^ | August 27, 2018 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    The Boston Globe successfully organized a campaign to get nearly 350 newspapers, large and small, to publish an editorial on Aug. 16 on "the dangers of the administration's assault on the press." They laughably claimed: "This whole project is not anti-Trump. It's really pro-press." This was The Globe's summation: "The greatness of America is dependent on the role of a free press to speak the truth to the powerful. To label the press 'the enemy of the people' is as un-American as it is dangerous to the civic compact we have shared for more than two centuries." It's easy (and...

    The New American ^ | 17 August 2018 | R. Cort Kirkwood
    More than 300 newspapers joined the Big Cry in publishing self-righteous editorials to justify their ideological disposition and take yet another shot at The Donald: Trump is Bad. We are not “Enemies of The People.” But after the foot-stomping tantrum, nothing much happened. Americans woke up Friday to the same great country — and the same awful media — as they did Thursday. Globe Leads the Charge The leader of the gang was The Boston Globe, the liberal media’s Mrs. Grundy, which opened with what logicians call the straw man: arguing against a point no one made: A central pillar...

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | August 16, 2018 | Kurtis Lee
    Hundreds of newspapers nationwide pushed back Thursday against President Trump’s frequent attacks on the press and his assertion that the news media is “the enemy of the people.” In a coordinated campaign, the newspapers — from Massachusetts to Hawaii — released editorials calling on Trump to curb his rhetoric about the news media. While presidents have long complained about the press, none went as far as Trump in his public derision. Trump often repeats the same words to describe the media — “dishonest,” “disgusting,” “fake,” “opposition party.” “We all — as citizens — have a stake in this fight, and...

    More than 300 news outlets have launched a campaign to counter US President Donald Trump's attacks and promote a free press. The Boston Globe made the call last week for a nationwide denouncement of the president's "dirty war" against the media, using the hashtag #EnemyOfNone. Mr Trump has derided media reports as "fake news" and attacked journalists as "enemies of the people". And he tweeted on Thursday: "The fake news media is the opposition party." "It is very bad for our great country... But we are winning!" https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1030074380397752320 UN experts have warned that Mr Trump's comments about the media raise...

    You could call this latest “coordinated” hit on big, bad President Donald Trump ‘The Dog Day of the American Newspaper Industry’ D-Day for the 340-something newspapers who took up the Boston Globe’s lead to publish anti-Trump editorials on their largely ignored-by-the-public editorial pages, and only Rex Huppke’s dog over at the Chicago Tribune is getting to lap up any attention. The progressive-left’s running dog media hoped to gain public trust by coordinating against the president they live to hate in a single day, but their efforts went over like the proverbial lead balloon.

    The media is a surprisingly self-unaware lot sometimes. And boy are they putting a fine point on that today. A few months ago, the media went into circus hysterics when Sinclair Broadcast Group required all of the company’s television news anchors around the country to read a scripted editorial that pointed out the “troubling trend of irresponsible, one sided news stories plaguing our country,” decried “fake stories” and lamented that “some members of the media use their platforms to push their own personal bias and agenda to control ‘exactly what people think’…This is extremely dangerous to a democracy.” The media...

    If you are a Trump voter who thinks that much of the press is reflexively hostile to the president, 300 of America's leading newspapers want you to know that you might be on to something. In a self-defeating act of journalistic groupthink, America's editorial pages launched a coordinated protest against President Trump on Thursday, all running negative editorials attacking the president over his #FakeNews rhetoric. The Boston Globe, who organized the effort, calls it "educating readers" about "an attack on the First Amendment." But to the average American, seeing an editorial in their local paper trashing Trump is called "A...

    More than 300 news publications across the country are joining together to defend the role of a free press and denounce President Trump's ongoing attacks on the news media in coordinated editorials publishing Thursday, according a tally by The Boston Globe. The project was spearheaded by editorial staff at the Globe, who write, "This relentless assault on the free press has dangerous consequences. We asked editorial boards from around the country – liberal and conservative, large and small – to join us today to address this fundamental threat in their own words." Editorials are typically written by opinion writers and...
