It's a brilliant strategy, not because it's so ridiculous or even true, but because it makes a lot of money.

Day after day, new wild conspiracies and outlandish allegations, from anonymous sources are flooding the MSM over President Trump.

What is the reason for all of this? It's a very simple explanation: It's what the people want!




The news network enjoyed its most profitable year ever in 2016 and it is in line to perform even better in 2017.

Zucker predicts that CNN's profits will hit $1.1 billion for the year, after setting new records for the last three.

Although it budgeted for a 25% decline in ratings as people lose interest in current affairs following the presidential election campaign, ratings for the first seven weeks of 2017 actually show a 36% increase in viewers over the same period in 2016.

The audience in the 25 to 54-year-old demographic – the most lucrative when it comes to advertising – has climbed 51%.

I am beginning to believe this doesn't have anything to do about the media digging for truth, or even a vendetta against the President. This has everything to do with what the viewers want. Gone are the days of boring old politicians.

These MSM outlets are only doing what it takes to survive in an ever growing competitive media market. They are still try to ride the wave of the election campaign, at all costs.

It's all coming into focus now:



Trump, in particular, seems to have been a magnet for attracting viewers.

President Trump works even better for Fox!!




Similar increases have been recorded at competing stations Fox News and MSNBC as people's appetite for Trump updates shows no signs of waning.

What are you talking about?

Relaying information on ISIS while sitting around a table is not leaking, it's relaying and sharing information against a common threat.

If the US had intelligence on a coming ISIS attack in Glasgow, would you not expect it to be shared? You're actually arguing don't share it and let your countrymen die, as if Trump were to share that it'd be a leak of intel and he should be locked up.

What the hell do people think presidents and politicians talk about when meeting with one another behind closed doors? Tacos? Wine? Their children's latest baseball game? Their favorite beach?

No, they talk about current events/issues/threats and share information which they deep helpful to a joint cause. Obama did the same god damn thing when offering intel to Russia on Syria. And you don't think the US and Russia regularly share intel on Syria or China or North Korea among others?

The mental gymnastics here to play stupid is mind boggling. Outrage culture is embarrassing this nation.

Now, come 2017, the Post seems to be doing something unique in daily journalism: It is adding journalists early in the year. “We’re adding dozens of journalists,” Fred Ryan, the Post’s publisher and CEO, told me late last week. Ryan, in a recent memo, said the Post was “profitable and growing.”

This isn't a coincidence, I bet WaPo will be seeing an uptick in revenue for the next couple weeks.

I got no beef with that, if people are going to buy it, why not sell it?

It is ultimately the decision collectively made by the consumer.

It helps them to obscure and spend less air time on Hitlary's mounting body count.

You guys are all wrong. Sorry.

These people are all friends at the top..I don't mean editors, I don't mean the managers..

Trump...Knows... All...Of.. These. CEOs.

They are friends. He has made them great again too..at making $ in adds. Do you really think they care about your hatred of Trump - at all - when in truth, his presence is like investing not it taking the golden egg covered in S***, but investing in peoples excitement about it? They all know what they are doing..it's you who is the one left guessing.

This is a show. Sorry...Not to be rude that is, but it's referred to as Hook...Line...Sinker.

They will use him till it sells no more then go onto something else, my guess? This lasts a looonngg while. Remember, trump is a MASTER showman. This is literally all he craves and thinks about to a large extent. Good show? Bad show? You don't get it..it does not matter...they are all laughing all the way to the bank. The Dough starting rolling in a long time ago because of this for them all.

Peace.

Trump = Ratings

I think they have 2 motives- one is the money and the other is keeping Democrats in full tantrum mode.

It's like the popularity of conspiracy usurped by the objects of the conspiracy.
