We all know the mainstream media hates Republicans, hates Conservatism, etc. But, lately, it’s occurred to me that, more than nasty, it’s dangerous.
I have heard rhetoric out of Russia, N Korea, China, and some European countries which seems to play on the Leftwing media’s rhetoric. It’s almost like the ‘meme’ thing we notice when all leftwing channels literally use the same word suddenly and within a couple of days, like “chaos,” “delusional,” “liar,”…you know the words that suddenly pop up like everyone got a memo and everyone then jumps on using the word, then stops when a new word is given them?
The Left is so ugly (watch CNN for 3 minutes any time of day or night…if Hurricane Katrina was happening, they’d still have a panel of five liberals finding ways to insult Trump, believe me) that I’m afraid it’s telling the world TRUMP IS HIDEOUS…and I’m thinking that’s dangerous.
Sure, we slammed Obama….FOX did it, usually more subtly than MSNBC or CNN toward Trump, but FOX did do it. It’s any news station’s job to be critical. Editorial shows have a right to go a little farther than simple constructive criticism. Still, the level of insults now is waaaay over the top. CNN’s Dana Bash’s favorite is “Trump’s tweet, another lie…” or “Trump, who said (this), which is clearly untrue..” ….Fine, she hates him and wants to run him down 24/7, but what’s that tell the world? And, yes, make no mistake about it, CNN is on around the world. And, by the way, having watched CNN International for years while living in Europe, I can tell you that’s more liberal even than our CNN, though I think since this election, it’s probably neck and neck now.
Do I think CNN needs to stop criticism of any president? No. But this level, this inability to bring themselves to have a Conservative on at least half the time for some balance (they do have a couple of stalwarts, like Jeffrey Lord and Kayleigh McEnany, who should get combat pay) is stupid and shows a lack of curiosity and intellectual honesty that’s very sad in our country today. I’m not sure I’ve seen more than 2 panels a day on FOX that didn’t have really sharp Liberals on it. Those on CNN are mediocre…they’d never invite Ann Coulter or Heather MacDonald or Charles Krauthammer on their show!!!!
Can something be done short of censorship that would encourage the liberal channels to go back to the normal criticism? I mean, they’re all OVER Trump for cozying up to Russia, but then all they do is insult Trump, which plays right into Russia’s hands!
For those countries which hate us the most, it’s ‘America hates him, why should WE have to put up with him?’….or not? What do you think?
Loved this one!!! You can’t make it up…
