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.

And Trump hates the the media and lies as much as they do.
Very directly and to our faces.

Which is your opinion to which you are entitled even if you have no proof.

The mythical Phage hath spoken.

And surely you have incontrovertible proof of this allegation, correct?

...or is it just your not so humble opinion?

ETA...from the MSM.

And yet, the fact remains, Trump maybe unfiltered but he's still a damn liar and I don't know that unfiltered compulsive lying is an improvement.

He's also an asshole who deliberately pimps controversy to pump up his base and keep the media from focusing elsewhere.

That's mythic, not mythical.

No proof at all.
You're right, everyone knows that Trump only presents the facts. Nothing but the facts. Just like Fox News.

Are there any politicians that aren't assholes who lie to pump up their base?

Its really amazing when you look at it.
Every Leftist on here and pretty much everywhere else calls Trump an idiot for doing it that way.
But the joke is on them.....that is his entire plan. To bypass these jackoffs completely.
That is why they cry every day about him.
They should really stop crying so much......it would be 10X worse if Hillary got in there but they wouldn't know about it because they couldn't see all of her backroom bullsh!tting going on lining her pockets, while taking this country down the toilet.
Trump tells it like it is, while Hillary would be lying out of both sides of her mouth every time it opened.

The more Americans prosper and stay safe from terrorism, the more the liberal media (and liberals) hate the President.

I'm hoping Donald J. Trump leads the country to such great prosperity, that we start seeing on-the-air mental break-downs at CNN, MSNBC, and by Colbert, and Kimmel.

"Start"? Heck, we're already seeing it!

It makes them just crazed! They can't stand it!

I would disagree with this portion. The media knows where the money is. Trump knows what the media wants. It's not beyond the realm of possibility that there is a symbiotic relationship to form a particular narrative. Reality is, they wouldn't necessarily need to.

The media could put out whatever (dis)information it wants on any topic. Left, right, middle and extremists from both sides love to love or love to hate Trump and that is good for business.
