I HOPE THE MSM DOES NOT ACTUALLY THINK THEY HAVE THE PEOPLE ON THEIR SIDE …
At a press conference on Tuesday, Donald Trump called out the MSM for the dishonest sleaze that they are. Wow, the truth hurts, don’t it. One thing is for certain, if the MSM goes there and does something dishonest, Trump is going to call them on it. Maybe that is a good thing that someone is actually calling the media out for the scourge that they have become? Trump went on to say, “The political press is among the most dishonest I have ever met.” Trump vows to continually attack the press. How comical. the MSM trying to tell us how Trump got it wrong about them.
Now Donald, lets have a presser on the economy, jobs, energy independence from OPEC, the national debt, abolishing the IRS and implementing a fair or flat tax
On Tuesday, Trump pointed out ABC News reporter Tom Llamas and called him “a sleaze.” Llamas’ crime? Asking the presumptive Republican presidential nominee to explain why he had misled people about how much money he’d raised for veterans.
During his tirade about the press, he interrupted CNN’s Jim Acosta who was asking Trump about his ability to deal with scrutiny, to say sarcastically, “Excuse me, excuse me. I’ve watched you on TV. You’re a real beauty.”
The attack, which came amid one of Trump’s familiar diatribes about the “dishonest” media, was the latest in a string of personal insults Trump has made against reporters covering his campaign.
Trump has called Fox News host Megyn Kelly “a bimbo.” He dubbed NBC’s Katy Tur, “little Katy, third-rate journalist.” He has also individually tweaked reporters from the New York Times, Politico, CNN and elsewhere. And at nearly every rally, the brash billionaire reams the press as “dishonest,” “disgusting,” “slime” and “scum,” calling political reporters the worst types of human beings on earth, prompting his crowds of thousands of supporters to turn, without fail, to jeer and sometimes curse at the press.
I HOPE DONALD TRUMP DIDN’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE THE MSM WAS ON HIS SIDE AND WOULD TREAT HIM FAIRLY?
In an interview with CNN, Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, told the media its now time to ask Donald Trump the hard question and to hold his feet to the fire. Unreal, this can only be interpreted as Clinton giving the liberal MSM their marching orders to go after Trump. I wonder is the same types of questions are supposed to be asked of Clinton? Too bad CNN didn’t say ok and we will start with you … and ask her about her private email server and what she would do if indicted? What would happen if the media actually ever got tough on Hillary Clinton? Of course that would never happen.
“I think reporters now have a chance to ask some tougher questions,” said Clinton. “It’s not enough to call in and give somebody a platform. It’s now the time to make the tough decisions, and you got to the ask him, okay, so what exactly would you replace X, Y, and Z with? If you’re going to be against trade agreements how is that going to work?”
Clinton later added, “So let’s get to the specifics. … Being a loose cannon doesn’t in any way protect him, I hope, from being asked the hard questions that he should have been asked during the whole primary process.”
The following is what will determine whether the liberal MSM will carry the water for Hillary like they did Obama, or play the general election coverage some what down the middle. Do media outlets like CNN want to continue to gain viewership and challenge FOX News, or do they want to be relegated to the cellar in the ratings again?
CNN Democrat Town Hall Question Proved to be a Fraud, Planted Question to Hillary Clinton … “I can see why they gave you this.”
CNN – DEMOCRAT PARTY TOWN HALL FRAUD …
There is a reason why CNN is called the Clinton News Network and the MSM is called the Democrat-Media complex. One has to look no farther than the recent CNN Town Hall in Iowa where you can plainly see and hear for yourself that Hillary Clinton was asked a planted question. One of Hillary Clinton’s final questions was from a young student named Brett Rosengren where he said prior to actually asking the question, “I can see why they gave you this.” THEY! WHO IS THEY?
Obviously, this was a planted question. Sorry LIBS, as much as you want to try and defend the obvious, you were busted!!! So it makes you wonder how many of the other questions were the same and did the candidates know them in advance to prepare their answers. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Town Hall.
IMAGINE THAT, THE DEMOCRAT, LIBERAL MEDIA COMPLEX IS LYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC …
Check out the story from the NY Post that debunks the media reports that there is currently a police killing epidemic. In the end, the moral of this story is: Don’t point a gun at the cops and don’t run when they tell you stop, and you’re likely to survive.
To hear the media tell it, America is in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave, an orgy of wanton murder in which heavily armed thugs randomly gun down innocent unarmed people, some of them teens, just for sport.
Except that these homicidal goons are wearing the blues and badges of American police departments.
It’s the narrative that’s given rise to the protest movement Black Lives Matter and to a growing public mistrust of the police in general. From Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., to the recent shooting of a middle-aged woman and a teen in Chicago, the body count seemingly keeps rising, exacerbating racial tensions and keeping the nation on edge. And each incident is breathlessly reported by a media determined to show that America remains deeply, irredeemably racist.
Problem is, it’s simply not true.
Last week, The Washington Post published a study of the police shootings that took place in 2015. Likely they intended the story to be shocking — as on Dec. 24, 965 people were killed by police! Instead, the report quells the notion that trigger-happy cops are out hunting for civilian victims, especially African-Americans. Among its key findings:
- White cops shooting unarmed black men accounted for less than 4% of fatal police shootings.
- In three-quarters of the incidents, cops were either under attack themselves or defending civilians. In other words, doing their jobs.
- The majority of those killed were brandishing weapons, suicidal or mentally troubled or bolted when ordered to surrender.
- Nearly a third of police shootings resulted from car chases that began with a minor traffic stop.
Socialist Bernie Sanders Calls Out the Liberal MSM for Giving Donald Trump Too Much Attention … Boo Hoo, Liberal MSM Not Giving Liberals Enough Air Time
SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS ISN’T A BRAIN SURGEON, BUT HE DID STAY IN A HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS LAST NIGHT …
Oh the irony, Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo and whined over the media coverage that was being given to Donald Trump. Sanders stated that the MSM was giving Trump too much media attention and was only doing so because Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks. Hmm, because backing a socialist agenda and making silly “socialist” comments don’t seem to catch the attention of a capitalist media, go figure?
Sanders called out Cuomo and stated that all the attention to Trump was “more of an indictment of the media, than of Trump”. Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls. However, Sanders has a point, but this is not anything different than they have ever done. But normally, the MSM is just paying attention to ridiculous liberal crap that is of no consequence as Rome burns.
Isn’t it comical though to see a liberal, and in this case a socialist, complaining about how much media coverage the liberal and bias MSM is giving to a Republican candidate? I cannot remember ever seeing such a thing. Of course, Sanders is acting as if all the media coverage for Trump is positive. But for liberals/socialists to complain the liberal MSM is not giving them enough air time is priceless.
Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks because they get media coverage — and blamed the press for falling for the real estate developer’s act.
“I’ll give you one example,” Sanders said in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.” “A recent study showed on ABC evening news, Trump over a period of time got 81 minutes of time. Bernie Sanders got 20 seconds. Now you tell me why.”
Sanders continued, “I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart. He knows that media is not so interested in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks. They love silly remarks,” he told host Chris Cuomo. “I think this is more of an indictment of the media than it is Trump.”
But Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls.
“I don’t see it,” Cuomo said. “Do we cover him more? Yes. Why? He’s number one in the polls. He’s highly relevant. He drives the discussion.”
But Sanders — who is trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton 34% to 50% in a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday -- interrupted Cuomo to say that Trump is on top because he is able to get his message out due to all of the media coverage.
But that is what socialism is all about, everything is the same. It is giving irrelevant people and issues the same amount of attention and time as the most important and pending ones. Don’t worry Bernie, you will be given a participation trophy after Hillary Clinton wins the Democrat primaries.
