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.
He went to Bard College. Is supergay. Is shunned by the White House press corps. And he digs Trump.
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.
It’s not just Youtube. It’s Facebook and other social media too. The effort to combat what has been called “fake news” is being used as an excuse by the #oldmedia to protect their marketshare.
Guess who doesn’t like independent media?
- The old media companies that are being hammered.
- The politicians who have cozy relationships with the old media.
- The former “opinion makers”
So I guess the reporter at Politico who did this fawning piece gets an invite to the next Georgetown schmooze fest.
Uh oh. No wonder they fired the entire DNC staff this week.
That this really happened and that a wounded mainstream meadia continues to try to push the Russian collusion narative at any and all cost is remarkable. The old media, the #cronymedia, and the Clintons thought they had it in the bag.
Boo, friggin, hoo for them.
Though Bernie was/is utterly clueless on economic issues, at least the guy doesn’t make you want to take a shower after shaking his hand.
If one really wants to understand the “fake news” phenomenon one must watch this 4 minute video from Pat Caddell. Recorded in the wake of the Benghazi September 11th attacks he lays out how the old media are not only biased against certain perspectives (conservative/libertarian) but in many cases are actively seeking to further a “progressive” agenda and abandoning real journalism altogether.
He was/is exactly right.
What we’ve seen with the media and this president is just ugly. The media so wanted a Hillary presidency. They were so all in for her. But they were denied by the “deplorables” and the #oldmedia HATE that. They can not stand that their heads were handed to them by their “lessers.” The folks within the #oldmedia are beside themselves that their worldview has been rejected, and even more scary for the #oldmedia, that their worldview is likely only to be rejected more in the future.
Now THIS is an interesting slip of the tongue.
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.
The #oldmedia, the #cronymedia, are on notice. They were so obviously pro-Clinton in the 2016 race that many Americans just gave up on the #oldmedia altogether. Any sense of fairness seemed in 2016 to go out the window. The old media companies, companies that had long watched their market share and revenues decline, doubled down on the establishment candidate in a ploy for relevance. But they busted. Spectacularly.
Now the old media are coming to terms with their new status.
