Ever since businessman Donald Trump entered the 2016 presidential campaign trail, the mainstream media (I prefer to refer to them as the sewagestream media because of the crap they produce) has been attacking Trump for everything he says and does.
For the past two years, over 80% of the sewagestream media reporting on Trump has been negative.
A number of these media outlets, such as CNN and New York Times, have been caught multiple times reporting fake news designed solely for the purpose of smearing Trump.
So, what has the media accomplished by all of their negative reporting on Trump?
It seems that the greatest impact is destroying their own credibility.
Breitbart – Poll: Media’s All-Out Assault on Trump Only Hurts Trust in Journalists – Polling proves that public trust in the establishment media has collapsed in every imaginable way during Trump’s presidency.
There is no doubt anymore that corporate media’s ongoing assault against President Trump has backfired in a way that journalists will never recover from.
An IBD/TIPP poll asked about “the public’s perception of the mainstream news media” and found that “fully half the country says its trust in the media decreased over the past two years,” while only eight percent say they have more trust in the media.
Inside that overall number, the poll finds a plurality of Independents (49 percent) have lost trust in the media over the last two years, along with 81 percent of Republicans, who already had a pretty low opinion of this wretched institution.
In worse news (for the media), more than two-thirds of the public, a whopping 69 percent, believe the establishment media are “more concerned with advancing its points of view rather than reporting all the facts.” …
In the survey, even a significant number of Democrats agree that the media is more concerned with pushing their views than they are in reporting the truth.
I know a man who used to be a journalist and he tells me that today’s media has abandoned all of the foundational principles of journalism.
Instead of being real journalists, they are nothing more than the propaganda mouthpieces of the socialist Democratic left.
