Everyday I read the local newspaper and on the weekends the Sacramento Bee. I watch numerous TV News shows, local and national and cable. I am a news junkie I guess. One thing I have tried to be most of my life is fair. But there is no fairness in the mass media of our country. The reporters and pundits (with a few exceptions) are trained and indoctrinated in "liberal" colleges by liberal professors. They are inculcated with the mantra, left/democrats are good, right/conservatives/republicans are bad. And all my life I have had to read listen to that mantra.
With the election of Trump and the capture of Congress by the Republicans we get a daily dose of this liberal mass hysteria. All negative. If Trump presented puppies to disabled children he would be accused of failing to supply the money for their upkeep. It is almost hilarious if it wasn't so sad. And to make it worse, the media is now pushing what we all have come to know as "fake news". Long ago I learned the hard way about how to read articles in the newspapers. Anything reported was always slanted. The democrats would get above the fold on the front page with the Republicans responses on the back and the last paragraph. That would go for anything considered "good" for a Republican. Enhance the left and diminish the right.
Last Sunday's SacBee had almost ten articles of negativity on Trump. They are obsessed. Today in the local paper the article on Trump's alleged disclosure of "classified" information to the Russian Ambassador in the Oval office has consumed the media. GUILTY they say. Even thought the other Americans in the room say it never happened. So they beat up Trump and make terrible accusations against him. And what about the term "alleged"? The media always use it for criminals caught red-handed for murder and mayhem. Yet they don't use it for these outrageous accusations they create for Trump. Why is that?
For over ten years we all got to read and see the media slobbering love all over Obama. Worse than a dog licking your face, the media was so in the tank for him I figured he must be paying them off. Nothing Obama did or lied about that was negative was reported more than once or twice. They protected him at all costs. And then this last election we all got to read the collusion between the media and Hillary Clinton. The media even allowed her access to questions before debates. And we saw Obama hire many of the lamestream reporters for his administration. All colluding to push fake news and their agenda of liberalism on the people.
Yet other than the coastal states and a couple more, the American people said no to them and their favoritism for the left. Americans voted for Trump and the Congress to be Republican. But this only inflamed the media and they doubled down on their hatred. Is it any wonder Trump hates them? And we Americans who believe in fairness hate them as well. All we ask is fairness yet the press can't even do that simple thing. Worse though is the media's opinion of us. We are all "rubes" who don't know what we are doing. No matter the press members could not hold a hammer or know which end of a shovel to use. Or have they ever really had a job? Yet they all have this bias and show it against the very citizens of America that make the country work.
The press is enhancing their differences with the rest of us and we are rejecting them. Social media has supplanted them and it is getting worse for them everyday. Most of the newspapers are going the way of the dodo bird. The SacBee is thinner than my little local paper. But rather than understand they are making half the potential readers mad with their liberal bias, they double down and ensure their own demise. Where will the reporters go when the papers close?
The bias is also clear to all of us regarding how the media treats the dictatorship we have here in California. Compare how they write articles about the one party of this state and you will see they treat the democrats with kid gloves. California is a mess and the corruption is rampant and owned by the left. Yet not much said or investigated by the lazy reporters. I suggest you study the SacBee articles for just one week and see if you agree.
So half of America is just shortchanged by the press as all they want to do is Trump bashing and Republican bashing. Americans are getting up to go to work, raise their kids and hope for a better life. So why not report on those kind of things? Good news is everywhere across the land. Most of the people do the right things but listening to the media you would think otherwise. Why not interview those of us with good things to say rather than the critics of everything? If you think you will sell more papers with the negative then you must admit it is not working. And we American of goodwill are sick of you liberals running the place into the ground.
