We knew it was coming. Or at lest we should have known. All indications have been there since Trump was inaugurated on that fateful day in January 2017.
Among the group’s “primary targets” are CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, HuffPost…
This is not at all about identifying sources of inaccurate reporting. If that were the purpose these supporters of DJT would be spending fortunes investigating the myriad lies and gross misinformation DJT spews on a daily basis every single day of the week.
What this is about is his supporters “investigating” legitimate honest journalists that in the course of doing their jobs report the TRUTH about DJT, his policies and his rhetoric. The good, the bad, AND, the ugly. As well as his character flaws. And everyone who is not a DJT cultist knows he has MANY.
This is not to say journalistic bias doesn’t exist. It does. However, the majority of journalists work diligently to combat their biases when reporting. They understand their purpose is to research, question, research some more if necessary, and then report facts. Does this always happen? No, but it is the norm rather than the exception.
Opinion columnists and media talking heads like Hannity or Matthews are recognized primarily as purveyors of their opinions. Opinions can be grounded in facts or they can be just starry eyed opinion with little to no facts supporting the opinion. It has always been this way and it likely will continue to be that way. Unless, and I say this with a growing fear it is happening as I type, the government gains control over our heretofore free and independent media.
That folks is precisely what DJT’s supporters, as well as the president himself are desirous of happening.
