Its should be no secret to anyone this year that the bulk of the mainstream media is firmly in the Clinton camp, eager to promote stories that shine her in a positive light and inflate ones that portray Trump negatively.
Case in point, Donald Trump has a mother of a Benghazi victim speak at the RNC, media blasts him for “manipulating” a mother’s grief. Hillary Clinton parades a Muslim father & immigrant on her stage at the DNC to criticize Trump’s policies and insult him, the media is just star struck with his speech…

Patricia Smith’s son died in Benghazi in this service of his country, Khizr Kahn’s son gave his life in the armed services in Iraq. Both have lost a son, yet the media only really cares about the lose of one that can fit nicely into their narrative of Trump being a bad guy, and Hillary a champion for the common folk.
A perfect illustration of how the media will include favorable headlines and stories to anything involving the Democrats, yet twist the very same situation in order to try and tarnish Trump and the GOP.
Donald Trump has landed a tremendous blow to the media this year, as he has proven himself unafraid of their negative headlines and backlash. He has stood up to their constant criticisms and still managed to win the Republican candidacy with a record number of votes.
Although some see Trump’s virulent tweets and fiery rhetoric as clumsy and hot-headed, so far it has proven a successful strategy for rallying his supporters to his cause. However, we won’t really know if his actions are a cleaver, bold new strategy in politics or a fateful mistake until the November elections.
