the media being 90 percent anti trump, in some cases admitting its their job to take him down, making up stories to make him look bad
Excuse me, but 90 percent of the reason Trump is being attacked is because of his blatant lies and contradictions. Trump himself has created his own
bad press. (Google the numerous recorded video contradictions and lies that have been caught on video, but than again Trump supporters ignore blatant
facts!) He whines about the press attacking him, but who picked the fight with the media? They make up stories to make him look bad? I don't think
the media needs to make things up when Trump provides plenty of ignorant and contradicting statements, lol. "Tough guy Trump" needs to get a
backbone. Instead of throwing out accusations about false reports, he needs to back it up with facts, or stop making stupid and ignorant statements
that attracts the attention of the press! The press is just doing their job showing this President lacks temperament and competency to be president.
helping hillary get debate questions and being sycophantic for her, all of that is just the free press being the free press.
Here we go again whining about Hillary and deflecting the issue of Trump always claiming fake news. I'm surprised you didn't slide Obama in there
somewhere. I'll take a page out of the Trump supporters playbook that has been used so often to make excuses for Trump. "She lost the election, so
get-over it." If she was a popular candidate she would have won both the popular and the electorate vote.
There was a lot of press coverage when it was revealed that former CNN contributor Donna Brazile shared questions with Clinton’s campaign. It's
dirty politics. You really don't think if Trump's campaign manager's had an inside scoop or person in CNN, they wouldn't of done the same thing? I
wouldn't doubt anyone in the same position would have taken advantage of that. Does it make it right, absolutely not. Does it mean the entire CNN
reporting staff was complicit? Painting all journalists with the same broad brush and calling all their reporting fake is a bit of a stretch. Heck,
how do you or I know that this hasn't been done with Fox News or any other media outlet. Fake reporting and dirty politics are not the same thing.
And the cherry on top is the very people making this argument didnt say a word when Obama was ACTUALLY arresting and wiretapping reporters.
I attacked Obama in a number of posts for attacking whistle-blowers. In fact that was one of the biggest pet peeves I had with Obama! So, if you're
insinuating I conveniently ignored this, you're wrong.
