I think Trump was getting much more positive attention from the media during the primaries than the other GOP candidates. Heck, I think the media was siding with him more when he was attacking Cruz and Bush! Both Bush and Cruz were attacked by the press for saying and doing questionable things. Sure Trump was attacked for saying some stupid things, which was reported by both the bias liberal and conservative media. Trump overwhelmed the news media everyday during the primaries which was free press attention which helped him gain support and win the nomination.
Now Trump's complaining because he's being attacked by then same media for more outrageous remarks. The media is all about getting their ratings up. What better way to get viewers to tune in than to see what the next stupid thing Trump said! If he doesn't want to call attention to himself maybe he needs to stop running his mouth, talk more about the issues, give more details on his plans, and just act more presidential. It can't be too difficult to tone down his rhetoric. Unless of course he just can't control himself, in which case he's screwed! When Trump's own political spinsters are having trouble defending things he says, viewers can't be so gullible and just ignore it!
Both candidates have their own dirty laundry. Trump should be the wiser and stop calling attention to himself and start pounding away at Clinton's scandals. The media knows Trump gathers attention. Heck, I know friends and relatives who are not voting for Trump but went to his rally just to get some laughs or see if anything crazy was going to happen, lol.
