The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is just relentless when it comes bashing our president.
In an editorial on the “Investor’s Business Daily” website, they claim, “Media Trump Hatred Shows In 92% Negative Coverage of His Presidency: Study”
They continue by saying, “Anti-Trump Media: To say that the big networks haven’t exactly had a love affair with Donald Trump, as they plainly did with President Obama, is an understatement. A new survey shows that not only is coverage of Trump overwhelmingly negative, but the president’s biggest accomplishment — the roaring economy — gets almost no attention.”
No…, not “almost no attention,” NO attention!
“What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: ‘Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.’”
I would argue that even these numbers are a misnomer. I would say news coverage is 92% negative, 7% is just “non-negative” and 1% or less are actually positive.
“Moreover, the very focus of what the media cover is highly selective. Some two-thirds of the Trump coverage came from five topics, including the Russia investigation, immigration, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination, North Korea, and U.S.-Russia relations.
Let’s see, what’s missing from that list? Oh yes, the one thing that’s overwhelmingly positive for President Trump: the economy.”
In other words…, propaganda by omission.
“If we don’t report it, it didn’t happen, or it’s not important.”
Even when they report something of a positive nature, it always has to come with a caveat.
For example, here we have typical negative Trump headline by Joe Williams for FOX Business:
“US adds 75,000 jobs in May, far less than expected.”
Can we not just be glad that we added 75,000 jobs in May?
And what about the unemployment rate in the country that remains at 3.6 percent…, the lowest since 1969? I haven’t heard much about that.
Propaganda by omission and the “but” news.
President Trump cut taxes for everyone, but…
President Trump has brought manufacturing jobs back to America, but…
President Trump is making NATO allies finally pay their fair share, but…
President Trump is making other countries deal fairly with us regarding trade, but…
But, but, but.
In addition to the “but” news, we also see bizarre, negative, fake news articles that just leaves you scratching your head.
“Washington Post columnist links Trump’s UK fashion choices to life missteps.”
By Bradford Betz for Fox News.
“If you can’t properly wear a tux, you’re going to have a lot of problems in life, according to Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan.”
“Her 965-word, June 5 article dresses down President Trump, the First Lady– and to a lesser extent– his family – for what she called poor fashion sensibilities during an appearance the Buckingham Palace Banquet this week.”
“Givhan goes on to equate fashion with diplomacy. With this equation, Givhan’s concludes, we can gain subtle insights into the president’s mind.’
The “fashion critic” feels the need to join in the Trump bashing as well?
It also appears that “the fashion critic,” an esteemed and necessary position in its own right, is also a qualified psychoanalyst!
Then we have another article published by “Yahoo Style UK,” titled:
“Disrespectful Melania Trump criticized for leaving sunglasses on during D-Day ceremony.”
How is this this being “disrespectful?”
If anything, Yahoo is being disrespectful of the First Lady.
Then we have an article for the “Style” section of “The Daily Beast,” by Alaina Demopoulos and Tim Teeman titled:
“Is That a Hat or UFO? Melania and Ivanka Trump Bid a Fashionably Fierce Farewell to U.K.”
Can you ever imagine these people taking pot shots at Michelle Obama’s wardrobe?
Of course not.
The article went on and on about all of the poor Trump fashion choices in their opinion, and finished off by saying, “The queen, meanwhile, looked her usual, utterly on-point distinctive self, in a wonderful hot pink coat dress and hat (with non-life-threatening brim), while imminently doomed British Prime Minister Theresa May donned a curious spearmint coat, with turned in collars, over white dress and a hat that was a complementary satellite dish shape to Melania’s UFO.”
So the bottom line is…, all of the fashion choices made by royals, socialists and liberals are exquisite, while those made by conservatives are horrendous.
Lastly, we have a typical “fake news,” “liberal propaganda” article by Heather Timmons, titled, “Joe Biden beats Donald Trump in Texas presidential poll.”
Does anyone really believe that Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump in Texas?
Of course not.
They don’t tell us that the poll question that was asked was, “Who is the creepiest presidential candidate?”
In this instance, Joe Biden wins hands down!
