This election year has seen the mainstream media pull back the curtain of “fair and unbiased” reporting, and instead they have opted to no longer hide their liberal favoritism. The media has been the Democratic party’s offensive line in this election and they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.
Many reporters at major networks and newspapers have been critical of every sentence Donald Trump has uttered, while only covering any massive scandal involving Hillary Clinton a fraction of the time. Even Hollywood stars have joined the fray, with Will Smith saying we must, “Cleanse America of Trump supporters.”
So it’s no surprise that many voters this year have observed the blatant anti-Trump bias of our journalists, and taken a particular disliking to the media.
Real Clear Politics reports:
Noah Gray, a CNN producer covering the Trump campaign rally Thursday in Kissimmee, FL, uploaded this video to Twitter showing a Donald Trump rally attendee shouting at journalists covering the event. “Go home!” he said. “You are traitors! I am an American Patriot!”
When asked his name, the man replied: “I am a Patriot! And your name is Traitor.”
Clearly this voter has been listening to the media carefully in their coverage of Donald Trump, and has come to form his own, educated opinion. It shouldn’t come as a shock to the media that they are perceived as bias, paid for Hillary Clinton supporters by millions of Americans. After all, CNN doesn’t gain the viral nickname, “Clinton News Network” for no reason.
Yet, political pundits tend to live a “liberal bubble” where everyone inside is a faithful registered Democrat and tows the party line without thinking twice. They rarely interact outside that bubble, so they aren’t aware of just how disgusted the country has become with them.
One thing is for sure, win or lose, Trump has revealed that the vast majority of our mainstream media is completely under the control of liberal political influence. And now that the curtain has been pulled away, there is no way the media is going to gain back the trust of millions of their viewers.
