Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 18, 2019

President Trump lashed out again at the "failing" New York Times on Twitter over what he called a "racism witch hunt." Said Trump: "Journalism' has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke." He added: "With all that this Administration has accomplished, think what my Poll Numbers would be if we had an honest Media, which we do not."

10 Ways to Tell if Your President Is a Dictator

1. Systematic efforts to intimidate the media.

As George Orwell emphasized so powerfully in 1984, autocrats survive by controlling information. A free, energetic, vigilant, and adversarial press has long been understood to be an essential guarantee of democratic freedoms, because without it, the people in whose name leaders serve will be denied the information they need to assess what the politicians are doing.

Only, that's not what we have at all. We have a corporate owned, political party controlled media that circulates the 1%'s propaganda.

This is how I know you're a shill.

Idiot describes Fox News, then pretends he's not been shilling for Trump here for years now.

The lack of self-awareness is scary.

There is ample evidence of my description being true.

But I see you're "ankle biting". Maybe I can get you into another serial posting rage so we can update that graph from years ago?

Trump Clearly Feels Betrayed By Latest Fox Poll: I Don't Know What's Happening'
talkingpointsmemo.com

...President Trump's increasing vexation toward his favorite cable news network reached a new height over the weekend when he expressed genuine disbelief over Fox News' latest poll, which featured him losing by head-to-head match up against four top Democrats.

While speaking to reporters on Sunday, Trump said "I don't know what's happening with Fox," when asked about the poll and said he didn't "believe" them....

Polls are a joke now anyway, like in 2016 Trump supporters didn't tell people who they were going to vote for. But Dems can still believe them like in 16.

And he is correct to a point. Imagine if all the media did was report everything he does that is good. There is plenty of it and if you do even a little research you can see I'm right, but it is overshadowed by the things he does that will generate clicks. This is the truth with all Presidents. I'm actually very shocked there are people who don't know this already. Hell, Obama did a lot of good but if you talk to people who only read right wing news, all you will hear from them is hate. That's because of two things...the media wants clicks and people typically only want to read the media they agree with. So if they hate Trump, they will read media outlets talking about all the things he does bad. The typical Liberal who loved Obama typically only read the good stories about him but ignored all the bad. You can go back very far to see this trend is true and has been going on a long time. Very few people overall are objective enough to get both sides' opinion and ultimately ignore them because politics is only about hate today.

In Trump's mind, his dismal poll numbers but be anyone's fault other than Trump. Being a full blown narcissist that is the only way Trump can process the bad information.

I'm sure that Dean Baquet is glad that his pivot from "Russian Collusion" to "Trump is a Racist" is working like a charm.

Even CNN ran bad stories on Obama.

Fox News, really not so much. Ivanka and Jared have private email accounts to talk to foreign leaders? Time to run more of the Clinton Email stuff and ignore it completely! (Wish I was joking but that's really what they did)

The disastrous rollout of healthcare.gov was too big to ignore.

That was about the extent of their negative coverage of Obama.

As was their initial failure to report on Fast and Furious until MSNBC and Fox practically shamed them into it.

#23 Actually, it was called "Wide Receiver" and that program was not only run differently than "Fast and Furious" the program ended before F&F commenced.

Trump is going to get crushed next year. What possibly will his hardcore supporters here on the DR have to say after that happens? Nothing. Instead, they will take a page from their Glorious Leader's book and simply lie to and insult everyone around them. Because like Trump, they have no character nor class.

Just curious -- did you say the same thing about the 2016 election. Every liberal I heard on the subject, without exception, said Trump was going to get crushed in '16.

Heard Republicans saying the same thing about Dems in 2018...

The difference between 2016 and 2018 was how familiar the American public was with Donald Trump.

Trump was an ------- in 2016. The Democrats weren't smart enough to put up someone who could beat an -------. I see the same thing happening again. Spare me the "Trump vs xxx" polls. The election is 15 months away. One hour before the last presidential election most every poll said Hillary was going to win.

Besides -- yes, I"ll come out and say it -- I don't think Trump is going to run. I don't think he wanted to be president in the first place, but his monster ego compelled him to run. Now that he has "President of the US" on his resume, and his place in history ensured, I think he's bowing out.

I also think that right now as we speak the Republicans are behind the scenes picking their man or woman and will present him or her at the last minute so as to avoid the embarrassing primary debates and ensuing debacles that are currently dogging the Democrats. It'll be a great way to present the sparkling new and improved Republcian party after 4 years of Trump vis-a-vis the fraggled democrats..
