When nearly every news outlet, every talk show host, every celebrity, are all repeating the same message over and over again it has an effect, it has
a very large effect on how people think. The repercussions can ripple through the economy and other aspects of society. If this message is something
like "your president is completely insane and will destroy the nation" then the effects will tend to be negative and have undesirable consequences.
Studies have already shown that most MSM outlets report negative news about Trump over 90% of the time. They barely ever mention anything good he ever
does, the only time I ever hear about the good things he does is on alternative websites like ATS.
This relentless negative reporting does have an impact on many people and heavily skews their perception of true reality. At this point I find it
baffling just how far apart the left and right are becoming in their perception of reality. One group of people seem to think it's the end of the
world and Trump couldn't possibly be any worse and then there's people posting a perspective which is the polar opposite, it's as if they are living
in two completely different realities. The truth is always more toward the center, I'm not going to deny Trump does a lot of dumb things, but if you
truly pay attention you'll see how much he has achieved in just one year and how much he is winning, it's simply deceptive to imply 90% of everything
he does is bad.
When I hear/read someone say how Trump is a fascist for "attacking the free press" I don't know whether to laugh or cry, first of all they're still
pumping out propaganda 24/7 and Trump will not prevent that. Secondly, the MSM monopolies are hardly what I would classify as "free press", they are
highly controlled corporations owned by a few billionaires and every story they report is carefully crafted to evoke a specific response from people.
I find it particularly hypocritical how they decided to attack the physical and mental health of Trump, after going out of their way to criticize
people for daring to question the health of Hillary before she lost the election. She was literally collapsing but it was absolute hearsay question
They decided it was enough just to say Trump had "narcissistic tendencies" and lacked empathy. Those labels probably have some truth to them
considering he liked to fire people on national television... but is that really a path you guys want to go down? Just get a few psychiatrists to
remotely diagnose the president as insane and he's out? News flash, most politicians and high level businessman have those traits and many are flat
out psychopaths, it's why they are so successful in those fields. What you really think Hillary is overflowing with empathy? Maybe if you're
completely blind and cannot see past the thin charade she puts on you may believe that... trust me it wouldn't be hard for anyone to question her
level of sociopathy.
What I find even more disgusting is that this propaganda isn't just isolated to the U.S., I don't even live in the U.S. yet nearly every night when I
watch the ABC news in Australia they talk about Trump, and it's virtually always negative. They have never talked about any other foreign leader as
much as Trump. Even when Trump does something great by any objective standard, they never even mention it, all they're interested in doing is
perpetuating this idea that he's destroying the United States. They wont discuss how the U.S. economy is improving in many different ways such as
lowering unemployment, but they enjoy talking about the declining value of the U.S. dollar. They do it because they want to convince people around the
world never to elect another leader like Trump.
It's so obvious some times I truly have a difficult time understanding how they brainwash so many people. I personally believe that the mainstream
media is the single greatest threat to human progress and advancement of our society. They constantly complain about how Trump creates division but
the truth is they stir up way more division than anyone else. These talking heads are the ultimate hypocrites because many of they are mentally
unstable, they spread hate and negativity, and they are no where near as intelligent as they believe they are. All these accusations they level
against Trump are true for themselves, they act like intellectuals taking the higher moral ground when really they are just sad little
