We have a problem with the press when the Mainstream Media (MSM) takes sides and attempts to destroy the President of the United States of America. I have known about the politicization of the fourth estate for a long time. When I marched on Washington in 2009, as we passed by the Press Museum, we booed what we understood was a lying political MSM, on our way to the Capitol.
The press and the opposition politicians they serve have stepped across a line that should never be breached. Lying, made-up stories, and deception have become the norm in the MSM.
According to an analysis by the Media Research Center, they found that:
What seems to be happening is that many in the media, including the broadcast networks, have chosen to morph into anti-Trump activists. As a result, they provide massive attention to stories that they think make him look bad, give little airtime to more positive aspects of his administration, and punish him with massively negative spin.
Their research revealed:
The Trump presidency was the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime—nearly 100 hours in total.
The tone of coverage has been incessantly hostile, especially for a new President in his honeymoon year: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (These percentages do not include neutral statements).
More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).
Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.
This attack on the President of the United States is wholly unacceptable. It’s up to our citizens to rescue our American Republic so that we can begin righting the ship. You and I can do that by turning off the MSM nightly newscasts and contacting their sponsors and telling them you are disgusted with them sponsoring fake news which is destroying the country. Time is short. Just do it!
