It's pretty obvious to even the most casual observer the vast majority of the media hates Trump, just loathes him. It's an interesting phenomenon
not because it's unique for the media to dislike a president, but what's stunning is the degree and the total count of outlets. Surely this must be
curious to others, regardless of what side of the fence they are on. Never before in history has the MSM ganged up on a US president like this. The
Nixon years might come close, but his administration got caught red-handed. Trump, technically, hasn't done anything, despite massive media efforts
to suggest otherwise. So why is this, why is Trump so different?
There's one big reason, one great big glaring difference between Trump and all other presidents before him. Trump doesn't let the media, or any
middlemen spokespersons, get in between him and his message(s). Like him or hate him, he's direct, unfiltered and raw; he calls a spade a spade and
stands by what he says (and yes, I said "spade". It has no racial undertones, it's just 13 of 52 cards in a deck of playing cards, no more). It
drives the MSM crazy! They can't filter his words, they can't put a spin on what he says, they can't take some carefully watered down and
word-smithed press release and "interpret" it to their own agenda. It just makes them insane. He has diminished them, wrested their self-imposed
rule of power.
Now, if people want to know what Trump said (for better or worse) they can look to his Tweets and statements directly from his mouth. What the media
says can only be viewed as an opinion on what he's already said. Before this, people would believe the media was accurately reflecting the
president's remarks, which were interpreted from some press release, written by some distant person and word-smithed so much so as to be meaningless
(or meaning anything they want it to).
Trump said the media lied, and it's pretty safe to say they have and continue to do so. It's been proven over and over again, and media ratings are
declining on a daily basis as a result. He's taken their power, he's taken their voice. He said he didn't trust the media, that they didn't
speak for him, and now he's proven what he's going to do to combat the problem...take the message, his message, straight to the people.
I'm sure there will be many flamers along shortly to throw out all manner of attacks to this post, but the bottom line is...love him or hate him,
you've got to give him credit for being direct, candid and not allowing the mainstream media to filter / spin his message.
