Trump and the media

The media are telling us how to think and they want us to think badly of Trump.  "The same crowd that tried to push him around is now trying to order him around. They think they own Trump.

"At about the same time that Mayor de Blasio lectured Trump on how to behave, the press boys and girls read him the riot act because he failed to report back to them when he sneaked out for a steak at 21 Club. They too instructed Trump on how to behave, which amounts to galloping chutzpah." . . .  

Geraldo Rivera: I Have Never Seen ‘the Mainstream Media … Be So Partisan’  . . . "Rivera said on “Fox & Friends” in the wake of allegations that Trump inappropriately touched or kissed several women years ago.
. . . "Earhardt noted that on Thursday night, ABC, NBC, and CBS all devoted a significant amount of time to the allegations – up to nine minutes on ABC and NBC and five minutes on CBS, while only devoting seconds – 30 on ABC, 26 on CBS and none on NBC – to Wikileaks’ leaked Clinton emails."

The New York Times “Rededication” Must Address Middle East Reporting
Will the newspaper heed the call of one of its former editors to stop treating Palestinians as “just victims”? Will it sufficiently cover and fully explore the role played by Palestinian incitement to violence and continued rejection of a Jewish state in the Middle East in the continued conflict? Or will it continue to advocate for Palestinians? If the latter, don’t hold your breath for changes in any of the other contentious topics covered by the newspaper.
Fake News and Our Cultural Crisis

"False stories on Facebook are worrisome, but the mainstream media’s own distortion of the truth is worse."
. . . "What do I mean by that? Just take a look at the past week’s worth of false media narratives:
1. "The Trump administration is in disarray." . . .
2. "Trump is already showing signs of unsavory nepotism." . . .
3. "Steve Bannon is a white nationalist like David Duke. Yes, Breitbart has championed the alt-right. But the evidence is not nearly as clear as the media have made it seem." . . .

Pat Caddell: CNN ‘Smearing’ Trump Supporters — ‘They Just Call Everybody a Racist’  . . . "Caddell said, “What they have not admitted is their complicity in Hillary Clinton’s campaign, or their unbelievable bias, and worse, their smearing of people, including Steve Bannon and others so that they could make some political points.”

"He laid the blame on having someone from Hollywood like Jeff Zucker running the network. “I don’t think it will go very well if that continues,” said Caddell. “They need to start with, ‘Hey, we did some not very professional things during this campaign,'” he added.
"It was CNN’s Donna Brazile who provided questions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign before a scheduled debate.
"Caddell said, “They need to start a new, clean effort to inform the American people, not to dictate to them. This is the loss of journalism.' ” . . .
