GroupGripe Is Liberal Media’s Latest Assault Weapon Against Trump

Dozens of daily newspapers are banding together to publish the same basic tirade against the chief executive's criticism of the presss

“Unprecedented” has become one of those terms grossly overused by the national news media in its nearly endless negative coverage of President Donald Trump. This week, however, it is accurate, not as it applies to the president, but rather to the media itself.

Scores of newspapers have agreed to make a preplanned attack on the White House Thursday under the guise of ‘coordinated response’ all using the same talking points. It’s certainly unprecedented in my lifetime to see groupthink take over more than 100 newspapers all at once.

The issue is the president’s ongoing war with the press and his recent comments referring to “fake news” as the “enemy of the people,” I agree with their anger and resentment at being labeled as such but aren’t these papers, including The New York Times, Washington Post and Detroit Free Press, underscoring exactly what is wrong with the institution in the first place?

I mean reciting chapter and verse from the very same anti-Trump hymnal and regurgitating nearly identical talking points underscores one of the very criticisms people have of the media today, which is they only care about destroying Trump, no matter what it takes.

Remember, these are many of the same papers that targeted Sinclair Broadcasting because that company sent talking points to it’s local affiliates to read concerning its news guidelines to ensure balanced coverage of stories and for dealing with ‘fake news.’

During its coverage of that story, the Washington Post described Sinclair as ‘the most insidious force in local news’ but this week will join more than 100 other papers in a mass display of groupthink and strangely will not believe it hypocritical at all.

Is the press the enemy of the people? Maybe not but having scores of newspapers duplicate nearly identical talking points for all isn’t exactly making you a champion of the people either. Where is this ‘independent press’ anyway?Many of these same papers have been the worst offenders when it comes to...Read More HERE

  1. The narrow minded idiots of the Big Media Complex fail to realize colluding and conspiring against Trump proves EXACTLY that they are the Fake News and Enemy of the People Trump says they are. They have been collaborating against the duly elected president since day one as evidenced by the over 95% anti Trump editorials and "news" items. They have become the willing propaganda arm of the Democrat Socialist Party and are conspiring to defame Trump each and every morning. Ask anyone what the employment rate is or how many unnecessary regulations have been cut and they can't tell yo but ask them if Trump is a "racist" and with piles of evidence to the contrary they will respond "yes" because the news media has told them so 24/7/365 since Nov., 2016.

  2. This effort would've been more impressive if people actual read newspapers.
