The #oldmedia loathes Trump. They loathe that he stopped Hillary Clinton’s coronation and it is unlikely that they will ever give Trump a fair shake. The #oldmedia despise that Trump put the brakes on the American Cultural Revolution and as such they will do what they can to bring the man down. Obama and Hillary were the good guys. Trump is a big boorish enemy of the “people” who was ironically put in office by “the people.” Just not the right people.
Heck, even we, rabid pro-marketeers, classical liberal libertarians that we are at ACC live in a county that went for Clinton. And though we live in the real world, where there are Waffle Houses, and people hunt, we live right on the edge of where America goes from reasonably normal to the North East.
This is an excellent article on most points. We disagree that area determines the news bias however. The media are overwelmingly “corporate-Left.”
Though it must be said that the media seems to like him slightly more now that Trump has removed Bannon from the Security Council and has started blowing things up in Syria.
We are pleased to see that Mr. Trump is open to questioning from new voices.But some of the old guys are going to complain.
This article is dead on. The #oldmedia is dying and they are trying (desperately) to pull a fast one while they can.
So let’s talk about “fake news.”
As you are likely aware, in the wake of the Trump victory there has been a desperate attempt to come to terms with why the Clinton machine lost despite having essentially all of the #oldmedia on its side. Let’s take a moment and review how biased toward Hillary Clinton (and her machine) the #oldmedia actually was.
Below only represents a tiny fraction of the stories we featured on the pro-Establishment and pro-Clinton propaganda push from the powers that be in the #oldmedia,
Below is part of the transcript from Bannon’s 2014 talk. The rest of the transcript is linked below.
They were still talking “landslide” at 8:30 Tuesday night.
The crony media establishment just got hammered. All the insider dealing. The questions leaked to Clinton. The railing against actual reporting by Wikileaks. The fawning. The reverence. All of it failed. And The New York Times, arguably, led the way. (Though other large media outlets were worse.)
Boy, what a shame that the paper is hemorrhaging money. (And that was before the media smackdown.)
A very good article written by a journalist with a leftward political list. (Which he admits from the outset.) He’s tough on Hillary and he is pretty tough on Trump. But he is hardest on the Washington/New York cabal of “journalists” that has been exposed as little more than a den of propagandists in this election. Of course we’ve long talked about the #cronymedia and the #oldmedia but it’s good to see other folks, journalists, speaking out now.
