CNN, other mainstream media outlets should push the reset button, start over with Trump

CNN other mainstream media outlets should push the reset button start over with Trump

As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m not a fan of President Trump. To me, he was handed the GOP nomination over much better candidates by a mainstream media who felt their best chance of force-feeding Hillary Clinton to us was by elevating Trump. That makes Trump and the media two of my least favorite things.

Whenever I scan headlines, my eye is always caught by articles critical of the President. I look at the source. If it’s CNN, Washington Post, or a handful of other ultra-anti-Trump outlets, I pass. Their abundance of bias makes their headlines irrelevant to me and I’m sure I’m not alone. Even NeverTrumpers have standards; we want to hear bad things about Trump from sources that don’t naturally hate him.

It got me thinking that if they really want to hit the President, they need to rebuild their relationship with him as well as their audience. At this point, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that CNN hates Trump. His ongoing hits against them sting much harder than anything they publish about him. They keep hitting, but the punches aren’t landing.

Never has the credibility of American media been as tainted as it is today. It’s not just the President’s attacks. The sexual misconduct challenges that started with Fox News last year and continued through Harvey Weinstein’s fall until today when news personalities seem to be dropping every day or two.

If I ran CNN, I would put out a statement like this:

“Since just before the 2016 elections until today, our editorial breakdown has been slanted against President Trump. This wasn’t due to mandate from our editors or ownership. It was a natural trend that originated from our staffers themselves, most of whom supported Hillary Clinton. Our intention as a news outlet is to be a balanced source for all Americans regardless of which side of the political fence they’re on. To make this a reality, we’re expanding our editorial staff to include more diversity in ideologies. We hope this will help us regain trust with our audience and promote better dialogue with the White House.”

I know what you’re thinking. There’s no chance they would ever do such a thing. We’re now in the realm of the purely hypothetical, so let’s take it all the way. If any major news organization did this, they’d risk being ridiculed by the President. Then again, he may consider it a victory and call a truce.

Either way, it would be short-lived. Even if they trickle in a handful of pro-Trump pieces, they’d still be slanted and the President would hit them for it. At this point, there’s nothing else they can do other than what they’re currently doing: doubling-down.

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat (again) because the Republican was mean (again)

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat again because the Republican was mean again

Mainstream media, or should we say “meanstream media,” has been in the process of lurching to the left for a while. Even Fox News, while backing the President, often rails against conservatives while embracing moderate Republicans who practice Democratic orthodoxy. That’s not everyone at Fox News, but some prominent show hosts really love to align in the center.

The Arizona Republic, which was counted on for a while to lean right during elections, made a shift in 2016 by endorsing Hillary Clinton. Now, they’re going to the left of Clinton by endorsing far-left Democratic Socialist Kyrsten Sinema. Her 9% Liberty Score makes her by far the biggest leftist in the state. Now the Arizona Republic wants her to be their next Senator.

It isn’t just her voting record. Her ideas are extremely dangerous for America and particularly a southern border state like Arizona:

Kyrsten Sinema’s dangerous ideas do not belong in the Senate

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/12/kyrsten-sinemas-dangerous-ideas-not-belong-senate/There’s a very distinct difference between defense of personal freedoms, a conservative staple, and desiring no repercussions for people who intend to kill Americans. As with many far-left activists, they don’t care about the lives of others if they don’t agree wholeheartedly with their worldviews.

This wasn’t the only statement getting Sinema into hot water with voters.

The paper’s endorsement of Clinton in 2016 can be chalked up to the Trump effect that hit many conservatives in their funny bone. It should be noted that I didn’t endorse nor vote for Trump, but I definitely didn’t endorse or vote for Clinton. My write in vote wasn’t even running. Oh, if only Thomas Sowell had stepped away from academia to lead the country for eight years, but I digress.

When the paper goes for two leftists in a row, we can call it a trend. With Sinema in particular, there needed to be a tremendous excuse that allowed the editorial board to abandon any sense of conservatism and embrace the far-left socialist values she has espoused her entire adult life.

Nope. Their excuse is as weak as anyone could possibly imagine:

Arizona newspaper backs Democrat in dead heat Senate race

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/412432-the-arizona-republic-backs-sinema-in-dead-heat-senate-raceRather than pointing to particular policy positions in the endorsement, the editorial board pointed to how the candidates have handled themselves during the race.

“We need to get back to a saner time, when senators didn’t call each other names — or if they did, they could put it all aside after the vote and go get a beer together,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “There is too much ‘us and them’ in D.C., and it hurts how we are governed.”

“The real Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema know that,” the board argued. “But Sinema is the only one willing to say it (repeatedly) from behind her mask.”

The editorial board argued that McSally has gone further than Sinema in attacks on her opponent.

The paper tries to justify their decision by claiming McSally is center-right (which she is) and Sinema is center-left (which she is not). One needs only to look at her 9% Liberty Score to realize she’s the most radical representative in Arizona. It’s not even close.

Thomas Sowell nails the fact versus feelings problem

There are many reasons why Thomas Sowell is my favorite conservative thinker. This ideas resonate so clearly with the right mindset. His arguments are practically irrefutable.

This particular quote from whoever runs his Twitter account rings so true today. Mainstream media’s programming has affected both the left and the right, but this component of their onslaught on leftist sensibilities is arguably the biggest problem with the progressive movement today.

Hilarious video Bombshell the beginning of the end walls closing in the tipping point

Most leftists remember it like a previous generation remembers when they heard JFK was killed. It was the moment they realized Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Since then, mainstream media has been incessant in their proclamations that his days are numbered.

Perhaps it’s comforting to them to continuously hear about how the latest bombshell means it’s the beginning of the end because the walls are closing in on a presidency that has reached a tipping point. Or something.
