The Mainstream Media Have Forfeited All Respect

The inevitable conflict between the mainstream media and Donald Trump has come to boil just four weeks into his presidency.  The media are beside themselves that someone would castigate them at every opportunity and use hyperbole such as “enemy of the American people” and purveyors of “very fake news” to get under their skin, as their narcissism and sense of self-importance knows no bounds.  They fail to understand why they are held in such disregard — polling has revealed only 32% of Americans trust the media (down from 55% in 2000) and why so many cheer Trump’s visceral attacks.

Over the past half-century, the mainstream media in the United States have evolved into interloculars for and the Praetorian Guard of the Ruling Class.  They constitute a segment of society which is overwhelmingly Liberal, wealthy, self-centered, isolated, and brimming with disdain for the rabble that lives in fly-over country.   Thus, what passes for journalism by the mass media is essentially a defense of the ideology, lifestyle and supremacy of their fellow travelers in the Ruling Class.

      Yes, but were they all unique special individuals, even if they turned to water or evaporated under the warm studio lights?

      The focus on Sweden had to stop as the US public had begun to understand that Sweden was suffering from a tide of non-integrating muslim immigrants who were committing a vastly disproportionate amount of sexual, violent and property crimes compared to the original Swedes. The attempt to spin a fake news story about how Donald Trump had supposedly lied about an immigrant attack in the perfect multicultural paradise of Sweden had massively failed. This fake news story was starting to raise more questions about immigration than the MSM wanted the public to think about.
