The Trump Nail in the Media Coffin


"Mainstream news sources exposed their own long-held biases through their extended meltdown over Trump."

Victor Davis Hanson  "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.

"Once upon a time in the 1960s, all the iconic news anchors, from Walter Cronkite to David Brinkley, were liberal. But they at least hid their inherent biases behind a professional veneer that allowed them to filter stories through left-wing lenses without much pushback. 

"When Cronkite returned from Vietnam after the 1968 Tet Offensive and declared the war stalemated and unwinnable, no one dared to offer the dissenting viewpoint that Tet was actually a decisive American victory."

When the press is unashamedly slanted, even its benefactors want even more partiality — media heartthrob Barack Obama included.
