Trump Calls Out Media, Again

The guy is telling it like it is when he says that no one believes them anymore.
They have been caught red handed massaging the news to fit their agenda and trying to disguise opinion as news for a long damn time.

Trump blasts ‘out of control’ media, defends agenda at heated press conference

President Trump’s feud with the media turned into an all-out war Thursday afternoon.

His early presidency beset by damaging leaks and a burst of staff turmoil, Trump used a hastily called press conference to blast the media’s coverage of his administration in his strongest terms yet. He claimed the press is “out of control,” reports on his team’s ties to Russia are “fake,” and news outlets are attacking him because they oppose his agenda.

"The media’s trying to attack our administration because they know we are following through on the pledges that we made, and they’re not happy about it," Trump declared at the White House.

The president spoke and took questions for more than an hour and 15 minutes, even joking with some reporters toward the end and saying he was having fun. In a bid to preempt negative coverage of his remarks, Trump insisted he was not "ranting and raving." But he lamented that the "tone" of coverage of his administration is one of "such hatred."

"The public doesn't believe you people anymore," he said.

The MSM refuses to acknowledge their dirty deeds and is completely unrepentant about it too.
The results of this propaganda and outright lying has been the steady rise in readership of alternative news sources and fact checking everything that they try to foist on the public.

The appearance of pay walls and out of control subscription advertising is a sure sign they are hurting for revenue yet they feel that they know best and cherry pick the actual news and substitute opinion and innuendo instead.

The President of the United States of America calling them out in a press conference designed specifically for the purpose of laying another body slam on them would usually get someones attention but these fucking idiots just aren't getting the message.

This is going to result in their further alienation and being occluded from access from first hand information which is going to perpetuate the cycle of them resorting to using opinion and innuendo disguised as news. Eventually people are going to quit paying attention to their message all together and they will be reduced to shock headlines only seen at supermarket check out stands.

Replace National Enquirer at the top and replace it with The New York Times.

That can't happen soon enough for me.

  1. I certainly do not read any major news paper or online content, hell, I don't even read half of my local town rag, only those parts that have local community goings ons and crime reports and city hall messages. The rest I don't read or watch any news or broadcast TV anymore.


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
