Can Trump win long fight with the media?

From Brent Bozell at Townhall:

President Trump is back from his first foreign trip, and CBS “welcomed” him back by suggesting again that he can’t possibly win a long fight with the media.More.

Reality check: The “media” in this usage are not the gatekeepers of yore but all-but-branded political opponents. Everything depends on whether the public can easily access alternative sources of news. They will need to, as an alternative to rule by unelected governments.

    In Canada at least the media are political opponents of Conservatives. It is official and they even registered as such during the election campaign. They are the same in the United States from my observation, even if it isn’t as official as here. In fact the MSM throughout the West are inflicted with hive think and are never non partisan.

    He’s winning so far and against all odds from the first day that he entered the Presidential race. His first foreign trip abroad was a great success and he got high praise from most people except the EU socialists who had their panties in a knot.
    The MSM has become so batshit crazy, totally deplorable and unreliable.

    How long can you listen to a one note band?

    One way is to completely ignore them. Like most children, they’d rather be hated than ignored.

      Well said.
