The Press: Unhinged

I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records. -Kurt Eichenwald

Veteran journalist Bob Woodward called on the national media Friday to keep focused on reporting straight news, after many reporters have revealed a bias against President Trump.

  Friday on MSNBC, Woodward said he knows of too many reporters who have strayed from objectivity and shown an excessive hostility toward the White House. -Eddie Scarry Go To Site

The effort to remove the president is conducted by the New York Times, the Washington Post, the wire services, and the major networks. And we have seen nothing like it in our time.

  In the last six months, Americans have been told quite falsely so many untruths about the Trump administration by their news agencies that for all practical purposes, there is no such thing as a media as we once knew it.

-Victor Davis Hanson Go To Site

As we’ve been discussing a lot lately, the media is in the middle of an attempt to bring down the Trump presidency. Call it a coup, a slow-motion coup, or whatever you want.

  False stories and conspiracy theories are invented and rolled out daily based almost entirely on anonymous sources for the obvious purpose of freezing the administration, enabling corrupting leaks from the bureaucracy, and making it impossible to govern. -William A. Jacobson Go To Site

Now anything goes. All restraints are loosened, all self-discipline trashed. There’s no cure or even treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome, a disease as wild and as swiftly lethal as anything imported from the Ebola River valley of the dark continent. The rules and taboos that once guided even the sleaziest excuse for a newspaper no longer apply.

  Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media, so called, and by any means necessary. -Wesley Pruden Go To Site

Carl Bernstein is calling on journalists to commit to a "different kind of reporting" in response to a "malignant presidency" unlike any the country has seen before. "We're in foreign territory," Bernstein said Friday on CNN's "New Day." -Daniel Chaitin Go To Site

MSNBC took its fear mongering smears of the Donald Trump administration to a dark new low Monday afternoon when reporter Katy Tur suggested the president’s war with the media would start racking up actual casualties.

  During an interview with Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican, Tur suggested Trump would take a page from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s playbook and start targeting journalists for death. -Nicholas Fondacaro Go To Site

CNN: Trump's "Angry, Divisive Speech"

Oops.

Liberal, Press, Crazy, Demagoguery

Friday on “CBS This Morning,” long-time CBS News personality Bob Schieffer reacted President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey earlier this week. While many have made comparisons to Trump’s handling of Comey to Watergate, Schieffer said he saw “parallels” to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

  “You know, there are many parallels Watergate,” Schieffer explained. “But I have to tell you, I think all the way back to the Kennedy assassination, to draw parallels..."

ABC News apologized Tuesday after the Monday night edition of Nightline edited a quote from former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer in a way that made it appear that he was more critical of current White House press secretary Sean Spicer than he actually was.

The Biggest Media Meltdowns to Trump's Win

Liberal, Incitement, Violence, Threats, Press

National editor at Politico Michael Hirsh resigned after publishing the home addresses of alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer Tuesday morning and advocating for serious violence... “I wasn’t thinking of a f---ing letter, Doug. He lives part of the time next door to me in Arlington. Our grandfathers brought baseball bats to Bund meetings. Want to join me?”

Slate: Brothers In White Resentment

Oops.

President-elect Donald Trump and Dylann Roof, the 22-year-old who was found guilty Thursday on 33 charges related to the murder of nine black churchgoers in South Carolina, are “brothers in white resentment,” according to Slate:

It’s to see both Donald Trump and Dylann Roof as heralds of the darkest forces in American life, to see their common heritage in a rising tide of white identity and white nationalism.

Liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested Friday that President-elect Donald Trump could have an incentive to allow or launch a 9/11-style attack on the United States once in office. Krugman wrote that President George W. Bush came into office with questions surrounding his legitimacy that were “dispelled” by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Krugman surmised that gave Trump “interesting incentives.”

Since President Trump was elected, the media landscape has divided and hardened more than ever.

Even the once-unimpeachable New York Times has been guilty of "fake news," while on Tuesday CNN had to retract an article that slimed a Trump aide based on flimsy reporting.

Most journalists missed the story because they were too caught up in defending a system of cultural authority of which they had foolishly allowed themselves to become an integral part.

Assessing the tone of news coverage, the Harvard researchers found that CNN's Trump coverage was 93 percent negative, and seven percent positive. The researchers found the same numbers for NBC.

Donald Trump Wants To Kill Us.

"So it's a weird tension. It's a dangerous time for the first amendment and the free press in this country. At the same time, we're oddly influential with the guy who wants to kill us."

Day in, day out, in every media market in America, Trump was savaged like no other candidate in memory. We were watching the total collapse of standards, with fairness and balance tossed overboard. Every story was an opinion masquerading as news, and every opinion ran in the same direction — toward Clinton and away from Trump.

For the most part, I blame the New York Times and the Washington Post for causing this breakdown. The two leading liberal newspapers were trying to top each other in their demonization of Trump and his supporters. They set the tone, and most of the rest of the media followed like lemmings.

"Fat slobs with bad taste are a core Trump demographic."

As he spoke, the crowd chanted "U.S.A" and applauded, prompting some critics of the president, who has the lowest approval ratings in modern history, to compare his rhetoric to the Hitler Youth, a wing of Germany's Nazi party.

Some of the most stunned people in the country right now are the media talking heads who spent over a year predicting there was no way Donald Trump could win the presidency. As election results poured in last night, the media experienced an all-out meltdown. -Claire Chretien Go To Site

Kurt Eichenwald is an experienced investigative journalist, with a best-selling book to his credit and years of work at the New York Times, Vanity Fair and now Newsweek. So what was Eichenwald thinking Tuesday when he tweeted this:

  “I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records.”

  There’s no evidence that Trump was ever hospitalized for such a condition, and Eichenwald cited none. The tweet was quickly deleted from Eichenwald’s account...

"If you look at the last eight years, there has been a very concerted war on not just sources and whistleblowers, but also journalists, implemented by not Donald Trump but by the Obama administration."

As a 25 year media-watcher, I have never seen anything close to the propaganda campaign the national media launched to defeat Donald Trump last year. It was 24/7, it was coordinated across every news outlet, it was all-hands-on-deck.

And Trump still won.

Aggressively ignorant.

Trump Presidency: The Press Gets It Wrong

Sloppy reporting is not new. There has always been corner-cutting in journalism. There is a new genre of lazy reporting in the Trump era, however, that goes well beyond the sloppy, and straight into the aggressively ignorant.

White liberals who woke up horrified on Nov. 9 weren’t horrified because the world had suddenly changed—we were horrified because the scales had finally fallen from our eyes, and we could at least see our unjust, racist, sexist country for what it is. -L.V. Anderson, Slate Go To Site

The normalization of violence towards publicly elected officials isn’t confined to the realm of entertainment. As a symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome, liberal journalists, too, have succumbed to fantasizing about the president’s assassination. -Ian Miles Cheong Go To Site

If I haven’t made it clear, let me do so now. The behavior of much of the media, but especially the New York Times, was a disgrace. I don’t believe it ever will recover the public trust it squandered. -Michael Goodwin Go To Site
