Time to boycott the media. Also, I don't think the media is liberal.

The media isn't talking about the real issues that plague our nation - instead, they just won't shut the hell up about every little issue they think they can pin on Trump. How is this okay? I mean, I realize a main goal of the media is to divide - to instill fear, to have us addicted to news and the stories they feed us, all of this drama and chaos is literally addicting and just triggers the right emotions to keep people hooked, to keep people playing this game..

Is this really worth it, though? To find problems that have been going on for decades, point at Trump, and hope to God he can't fix it so the story can continue, or if he does fix it, ignore it? ( compare "isis" headlines this year compared to a few years ago.) is the media reporting record high stock markets and record low unemployment rates? Is the media reporting anything good or worthwhile at all? ( for the record, I don't think only good is happening - but we mostly are heading in the right direction, and this needs to be spread. We could use a little hope and encouragement )

Not to mention they're destroying the democratic platform - while I highly dislike this partisan nation, we definitely don't need a bunch of corporatists who previously worked for Goldman Sachs and the like to be the dominating party - what can we do when the media is painting the democratic party as lunatics who are "triggered" and incite violence and just spew hate about Trump like robots? That is not who these people are - I'm a millennial, and I know my peers better than that- they have their faults as all generations do, but they are not at all what CNN depicts.. Unless they get their information from there.

Anyways, just frustrated - the media sucks and is killing one of two evil parties.. What do we do?

There are more than 2 Parties.
There are no "evil" Parties. Just evil folks within those Parties taking advantage of regular folk.

Oh, well - the media is essentially killing those that identify with the democratic party, vote Democrat on voting day, etc. Honestly these aren't inherently bad people - yet the media chooses the worst of them and makes it non stop news, how is the media deemed pro liberal when they usually make them look worse and is the reason the party is dying?

Sounds about right.

The media was pretty quiet about the 100,00+ bombs obama dropped on 7 nations over the 8 years he was in office. (5 we are not at war with).

The media is still quiet after Trump has dropped another 44,000+ in his first year alone, on par to be 8X as many bombs dropped.

They both did nothing about the patriot act, which is probably the least constitutionally sound document we've signed in to law.

I think that matters far more than beige suits, melania's jacket or some stupid border wall which will cost more than just letting immigrants in to pick avocados, which are beginning to rot on their trees.

Wall St corruption: not a single president has done anything but hire these crooks, Trump included.

The military media intelligence complex: Trump MIGHT be trying to do something about it, but it would help if he didn't have more skeletons in his closet than Jerry Garcia. Gifting them another 700 Billion to a Trillion dollars certainly isn't shutting down the deep state.

The media doesn't write much about the warrantless wiretapping and electronic surveillance the NSA collects on everyone.

I also don't see either republicans or democrats doing anything about these issues.

THATS THE REAL DEEP STATE

Can we at least agree on that?

Lets be honest.

The media is either the spokesmen for republican party or the democrat party.

There is no media anymore.

It's all just PR for ideologies.

Did you form that opinion from your own honest and thoughtful, genuine investigation?

Or did you turn on the news and see something about Antifa?

There's a large difference.

So, when the media bashes on conservative ideology non-stop, yet is likely knowingly destroying the democrat party.. Who are they representing?

I gave up on the media quite some time ago. It used to be there were people who wrote the scrip and the people that would present it in front of a camera. Now, it's a bunch of know nothing pundits who think the country hangs on their every word. This goes beyond news channels. Look at late night TV. Johnny Carson would joke around in politics but that was one minor element. Now that's all late night seems to exist for.

Good question.

Certainly the media is not working in America's best interests.

I've been saying this for years and I do it. I never watch the news local or national unless I'm looking into a specific topic, following up with something I read here or there is a major inccident of some kind. I don't even watch sportscenter any more. It's liberating!
