It is not any real secret what President Trump thinks of the liberal controlled main stream media. I personally have to agree with his views. Through repeated lies and a blatant bias the liberal controlled main stream media have proven themselves to be exactly what President Trump has said they are. An enemy of the American people. When you can’t trust the media that brings you the news then yes that makes them the enemy. One month after he took office as president, President Trump declared the media the enemy. If you were to talk to any of the main stream media for example CNN’s Jim Acosta they would cry that they are the victims of an endless string of attacks that come from President Trump, but there are a large number of Americans who know the truth. Liberals started the war a long time ago.
In the year that followed President Trump taking office the word fake has been connected by the main stream media by President Trump at least a hundred times. Last week at a political rally in Pennsylvania President Trump declared that the media was “fake disgusting news.” As he spoke to the crowd of proud patriotic Americans he asked, “whatever happened to honest reporting?” Then he pointed out to a group of reporters who were on the scene to cover the event as he told the American people that the media no longer reports the news. Instead the media makes up their stories.
It was not that long ago that Jim Acosta failed to get White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to speak out against President Trump’s view of the main stream media and declare that the media is not an enemy of the American people. Millions of people know about how he tucked his tail between his legs and ran away from the mean scary woman who spoke to him like a dog that had just been scolded after he failed to break her. Now there are groups within the media who wish to prove to the American people that they are not the enemy that President Trump and the rest of us know they have proven themselves to be over the last year and a half. How do they intend to prove they are an ally of the American people that we can trust instead of the enemy that we already know them to be?
The editorial board of the Boston Globe got the absolutely brilliant idea to try and get newspapers across the nation to stand together as they express their disdain for the president’s words on August 16 with the most powerful weapon that the media possesses, their voice. Their idea calls for opinion writers to write independent opinion pieces about President Trump’s attacks on the media. At the time of this writing it would seem that so far 70 news organizations have agreed to take part in this rally that the media is going to hold. Big name well known newspapers like the Miami Herald and Denver Post will be taking part in this proposal as well as small town weekly papers that over 90 percent of the people in America have never heard of before as they take a day to speak ill of President Trump.
Whoever it was that came up with this idea must not have put a lot of thought into it, because I am sitting here thinking about the agenda they intend to see carried out on August 16 and I only come to one conclusion. These people are hoping to prove to the American people that they are not the enemy that President Trump has said they are and that they have proven themselves to be by doing exactly what they do every other day. That is a really bright idea. They should give a gold star to whoever came up with that idea. The editorial board of the Boston Globe has a real winner of an idea there. I am being sarcastic when I say all of this, because you can not prove that you are the enemy by doing the exact same thing that got you labelled as the enemy in the first place. If the media does not wish to be seen as the enemy then they have got to do something different.
The same main stream media who does not wish for the American people to see them as the enemy celebrate every time someone who supports President Trump gets attacked and has had almost nothing good to say about our president. There is no reason that President Trump should speak favorably of a group of people that has had nothing good to say about him or any of his policies since the first day he stepped in office. While they celebrate every time someone who supports President Trump gets attacked instead of defending those who are attacked these same people now want to play the victim card and point to the death of five journalists who recently lost their lives in Annapolis, Maryland as a reason for why the American people should not see them as the enemy.
A little advice to the main stream media. If you do not wish to be seen as the enemy of the American people that President Trump and intelligent Americans have come to view you as over the last year and a half then stop being the enemy. However, doing the same thing that you have always done is not the best way to prove that you are not the enemy of the American people. For you and the rest of America, August 16 is just another day. Business as usual.
