Conrad Black: The malicious and dishonest media really are, as Trump says, ‘enemies of the people’

Even allowing for the astonishing pyrotechnics of current American politics, the Canadian journalistic reaction has been rather disappointing. Canadians have a unique ring-side seat on American personalities and events, and flatter themselves that they know that country better than any other foreigners do. Perhaps because of the garishness of American politics, the immense amounts of money involved in American elections and the lobbying process, and the practical absence of laws of civil defamation, Canadians are almost perpetually appalled yet fascinated by the American political spectacle. The intense controversies of the Trump presidency have generated a dreary branch-plant, copy-cat, me-too replication of the Trumpophobia of the national U.S. media.

    This whole cacophonous babel of spurious allegations will crash. The president is not a suave man, but he is very tough and very smart, and his enemies are not. He will win and he will change America.

    I got my first wake up call as to how really low life Canada’s media party really is when they proceeded to trash Gov Sarah Palin, one of the most honest, most pro Canada, most pro Canadian politicians to be found in the whole USA political scene. The demented American lefty MSM barked at her so our losers followed suit.

    • The MSM in Canada is a bad joke.

        You forgot “toxic”. Canadian MSM are toxic.
