No doubt, the election of Donald Trump has brought out the worst in the traditional, liberal mainstream media.
Their leftist political bias has been so obvious and so arrogantly abhorrent that very few consumers could miss it if they are paying any attention at all.
Virtually all of the major news networks and their left leaning polls called the election for Clinton before it even got off the ground and when Trump won, the network anti-Trump bias became even more pronounced.
As Real Clear Politics stated:
President-elect Donald Trump probably will not often communicate with the nation via traditional press conferences. Nor will Trump likely field many questions from New York/Washington journalists.
What we know as “the media” never imagined a Trump victory. It has become unhinged at the reality of a Trump presidency.
No wonder the fading establishment media is now distrusted by a majority of the public, according to Gallup — and becoming irrelevant even among progressives.
It seems that how passionately a journalist likes or dislikes a particular politician or public figure determines whether or not that reporter will give him or her a fair shake when reporting about them.
Real Clear Politics continued:
Journalists such as Jim Rutenberg of The New York Times and Christiane Amanpour of CNN said that they could not — and should not — be neutral reporters, given their low opinion of Trump.
When the press is unashamedly slanted, even its benefactors want even more partiality — media heartthrob Barack Obama included.
In his last press conference as president, Obama attacked pet journalists for reporting on WikiLeaks’ release of John Podesta’s emails, supposedly at the expense of his own legacy and Hillary Clinton’s accomplishments.
The WikiLeaks trove certainly proved another disaster to the media — but only because it revealed that mainstream journalists conspired with the Clinton campaign.
The instances of liberal journalists practicing character assassination against political candidates with whom they disagree are innumerable and the election of Trump may have hammered the final nail into the mainstream media coffin, as far as the voters are concerned.
Now they know the mainstream media simply cannot be trusted to tell the truth!
