New Poll: 2/3rd Think That the Media is full of Sh… Err…’Fake News’
America’s Main Stream Media realized shortly after the American People elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President that in order to have access to President Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.
So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.
At the rate that these stories are being debunked, most Americans have accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” are the voices inside their own over-sized heads.
Foxnews.com reports that
Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of “fake news,” according to the latest Harvard-Harris poll.
65 percent of voters believe there is a significant amount of fake news in the mainstream media, and the sentiment is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats reflected this distrust of the media.
84 percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.
The Harvard-Harris online survey of 2,006 registered voters was conducted between May 17 and May 20.
On “The Fox News Specialists,” Eric Bolling said the media had a particularly bad week last week, with The Washington Post and The New York Times publishing negative stories about President Trump that proved to be “duds.”
“Two publications that people really rely on to have real news and real researched news and journalistic standards blew it last week badly,” Bolling said.
Rob O’Neill lamented that the media has forgotten the importance of honesty, and too many journalists are now reporting on what’s going to advance their personal agendas.
Bolling agreed, and added that many of these anti-Trump stories cite unnamed sources.
“They’re undermining their own credibility,” Bolling said. “If you have a source, name your source. Or don’t run with it.”
During his nationally-syndicated radio Program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh hit the proverbial nail on the head when he said,
I mean, the media is conducting a political assassination. It’s beyond a coup, folks. I mean, what’s going on is beyond a coup. And the leak story has now taken on new levels here that — like the U.K. prime minister, Theresa May, is gonna lecture Trump in a meeting today for what the New York Times is leaking about details of the bombing in Manchester, as though Trump has anything to say about what ends up in the New York Times.
But apparently U.S. intelligence sources leaked whatever they knew to British media and other media, and pictures of the bomb, remnants of the bomb and so forth appeared. The U.K. prime minister is very, very, very upset and is gonna call Trump on the carpet for allowing this and making this happen. Does she not know? Does she really not know that Trump has nothing to say over what’s in the New York Times? I go through the news, folks, it is surreal.
…They are currently engaged, the Drive-Bys are engaged — I think we just need to be honest. Some people are calling it a coup. I think we’re witnessing a political assassination that is being conducted by the media and of course joined by the Democrat Party and other leftists around the world.
Every day, every day, four o’clock to 5:30 in the afternoon, there is a new blockbuster, supposed blockbuster that shows up in either the New York Times or the Washington Post. And if you read the entire story, you will find that the details suggested by the headline and the early reporting in the story actually cannot be backed up! It’s the most amazing thing.
I’ve got a break coming up. I’ll give you an example of this that happened just yesterday. It’s over the top. There’s an allegation about Trump and the Russians or whatever, I forget what it is specifically here. At the end of the story, they basically say, “But we can’t confirm any of this. Nobody has any solid evidence to confirm.” Well, then why do the story in the first place? Whatever this is, it is not journalism. And that is what I think is gnawing at you.
This isn’t journalism. It’s all happening under the guise of journalism, under the pretext that it’s journalism and reporting of news, but it isn’t. This is not journalism. This is political and character assassination. Now, it always happens to Republicans. It’s usually much more subtle and not nearly as regular and intense. But Trump has changed the game to the point now that’s all it is, all day, every day. There is no break from it. It never ends.
The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.
The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.
I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bring home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store , to read with his morning coffee.
Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies being peddled by the Main Stream Media about our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.
The good news, as shown by the poll in the above article, is that the majority of Americas are not buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.
President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.
Nor should he have to.
The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.
The Main Stream Media knows that.
The problem is the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump as the next President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.
The Main Stream Media not only has lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.
Or, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him.
Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.
The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.
Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.
And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.
That is why they continue in this poorly-received quest to try to bring down Trump.
Even if no one is watching, listening, reading, or believing them.
Until He Comes,
