www.theblaze.com...

Watch the video, my apologies you have to go to the link above as theblaze.com sucks at being easy to share...

Basically, she describes where the bias in media comes from; or at least the source of why the majority of Trump supporters distrust the media. They go to an event and they have a great time. They get home and watch a MSM outlet cover their hometown and find the most disturbed person, that isn't even from their town, was the person the MSM interviewed. She's right though, the MAGA movement isn't nationalist in its roots; it's towns that want to see their towns flourish. She's right. The Trump voters care less about whether or not Seattle fills their streets with the homeless, they just know that for a long time living in their own communities life got harder; and they feel less regulation, less red tape, and less money picked from their pockets will help them make their own communities better. The MSM completely misses that, which is why Trump voters don't trust them; and shouldn't.

Never been to a Trump rally, but a few of my crew went to the one in Fargo yesterday. Small venue (probably 7,000?) but there were tens of thousands of people outside. Lots of Jeeps, lots of flags, a ton of vendors out there too.

They said when the Star Spangled banner was sung you could hear the people outside singing it... from inside.

It raised the hair on their arms. They said the event itself was amazing... everyone happy and having a great time.

I have to ask those who see this as a bad thing... what is wrong with being patriotic and having a great time?

And the woman is correct... you are there on the scene, you go home and watch the news and it is entirely different from what you experienced.

It is no wonder more and more people don't trust the media.

Because they shouldn't.

S&F and this thread should have more action.

That it doesn't just means that the lefties on the site don't have the balls to put in their two cents on an obvious bias in a media that supports the left, almost entirely.

I have some friends who were there that said the exact same thing, my friend.

They said you would have had to have seen it, to ever believe it.

What's unfortunate is the LITERAL truth of that statement.

I've been to a Trump Rally, they really are a cool thing. Everyone even the left if they come with an open mind, will be surprised.We are all pretty normal people who just want what's best for our fellow citizens.

I didn't see one damn Nazi even. So disappointed.

It is not forbidden to have fun on an event.
Whatever comes out of this event might be a problem.

Source: Hofbräuhaus in Munich, 1918. Fun event, many laughs, a relatively unknown speaker called Hitler!

Don't paint only one side of the coin!

Edit: oh and before your fee-fees hurt too much - he wasn't a fascist back then, or a Nazi, that came later after his incarceration (while writing "Mein Kampf"). Back then he was just a highly-skilled demagogue. In which he has a striking similarity to Trump, but Hitler had to use longer words, being German and .. well.. a bit less simple structured in the brain, in my opinion.

You say the MSM completely miss the point of the MAGA movement which is at the heart of the Trump rallies.

I would have to differ with you on this point. They are not missing anything; they are "aiming" in another direction. Their coverage is done this way by design not by anything else.

Please stop it. No ones feelings are hurt, you are just flogging a very dead horse.

Meh.

I already heard the trumpists cry about "TRUMP NOT HITLER! GO AWAY! HE NO FASCIST!". And don't pretend we didn't already witness outbursts like this on this board.

Doesn't the alt-right do this too? Like infowars' reporters pushing their own anti-liberal agenda. Making it out like the entire left is ruled by feminist-nazis, pedo supporters, uneducated youth, PC-nazis, and could commie socialists who want to give all your money to lazy hippies.

Both sides are minipulated. No side is free of guilt.

If you dislike how the news media (like CNN) is representing your side then STOP supporting the same from the republican side and start calling them out too. Fox News, infowars' sensationalist journalism, rush Limbaugh, etc..

Start calling out your sides' BS.Then eventually we can stop having these polar sides that are used to conquer and divide.

Can any good come from a polar party system with such division?
