When President Donald J. Trump said the FAKE news media was an “enemy of the people” he was right. Instead of wearing it, those the shoe fit cried “evil”. What else could they do? The only other option was to do a little soul-searching.
Gone are the days of journalistic integrity. Daily Press Briefings highlight the media’s tabloid mentality. Like children they interrupt responses with “how come?”, “why not?”. Reporters ask redundant questions when the answer is not the one they need to fit the story they have already written.
The coverage after the briefing is astounding. One has to wonder what press briefing they refer to because the account is far from the reality. Grasping at straws they regurgitate the democrats theme song. “The Sky Is Falling” with a resounding chorus of “Russia, Russia, Russia”.
One thing is for certain. The White House Press Corps is far from professional. Somewhere a long the line they have lost their way. While the world passes them by they spend all their time attempting to take down the President of The United States of America to meet the needs of their political agenda.
Reduced to nothing more than the mouth piece of the Democratic Party, the media spins the narrative they have created. Salacious headlines cry wolf. But, the facts they present scream otherwise. When all is said and done their stories turn out to be much ado about nothing yet again.
Melodramatic fear mongering has become a tool of their trade. It is hard to take someone constantly in crisis seriously. Yet that is what viewers are expected to do. In the end all that is accomplished is needlessly frightening the vulnerable and being dismissed by many as not credible.
Meanwhile there are many things going on around us that are minimally covered or not at all. Instead of telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth the media reports what they want us to think. They no longer provide a service to the public. At this point in time the media is practicing yellow journalism without remorse.
Reporters appear shallow while lacking critical thinking skills. Fixating on the assumption everything President Trump does is evil they ignore the facts that prove otherwise.
The coverage of the James Comey firing is a good example. In the press briefing all but one in the press attacked the messengers and focused on what day would have been better to fire Comey. Trump’s tweet saying Comey better tell the truth and hope there are no tapes of conversations before he leaks to the press as a result of Comey’s quote in the news was their smoking gun.
The majority of the media brain pool insisted that Comey being fired was an attempt by the President to stop Comey from investigating him. If those pushing the melody of the moment actually believe it they are incompetent, if they don’t they are corrupt. The tweet was a threat according to the democrats’ lynch mob.
To begin with Comey was not investigating President Trump. The United States Congress House and Senate and the FBI are investigating Russian interference into our elections. The FBI functioned just as well after Comey was fired under the direction of the acting director who by the way has strong ties to the democratic Party. To imply otherwise is an insult to all those in the FBI who serve this country.
Alleging the tweet was a threat is absurd. What exactly was the threat? If James Comey lies about conversations with the President he should be aware there maybe recordings of those conversations. So in other words if he lies he might be proven wrong. It is the White House, James Comey was the Director of the FBI. One would hope there is outstanding surveillance and of all people James Comey should know exactly where, when and what is in the White House.
The one press member that gave me hope asked relevant questions. Does the President know who he intends to replace Comey with? What is the expected time frame for replacing Comey?
With so many democrats and media members demanding James Comey’s head and then feigning outrage when they got it makes them appear disingenuous at best. With anything and everything being recorded and put out there for the world to see it is impossible to hide the hypocrisy.
