Maybe it would be less challenging if you didn’t lie all the time?
We’ve said repeatedly that the media has been dealt a devastating blow by recent events, and that their decline is inevitable now.
It’s interesting to see these people starting to realize this themselves. The period of “denial” is coming to a close, and now we’re about to see the media move on to “anger.”
That is to say, they’ll accuse Trump personally for destroying them.
But of course, they only have themselves to blame.
Chris Cillizza writes for The Washington Post:
I’ve been writing the “Worst Week” column for four years or so. And every week, without fail, people make sure to nominate “the media” for the “honor.” Finally, all of you get your wish!
Here’s why: Even as the media continues to reel from largely missing the stunning upset pulled by Donald Trump on Nov. 8, the president-elect spent the past seven days proving that he will be the single biggest coverage challenge political journalism has ever faced.
Keep crying big salty tears about it, shill.
The “challenge” comes entirely from your insistence on forcefully promoting cultural-Marxist drivel instead of objectively reporting on the truth.
You think Trump would be giving you a hard time if you hadn’t lied repeatedly about him during the whole election?
On Monday, Trump hosted the top executives and anchors of the major TV outlets in the country and proceeded to lambaste them. “Instead of striking a harmonious tone to build a rapport after the election, Trump was combative, participants said,” WaPo’s Paul Farhi wrote of the meeting. “In a calm and deliberate voice, he told the group sitting around a conference table that they had failed to provide their viewers with fair and accurate coverage, and he told them that they failed to understand him or his appeal to millions of Americans.”
The message was clear: There would be no reconciliation, no coming to an understanding. There would be Trump victorious and defiant. And that’s it.
The Trump train: get on board, or bite the dust!
But the two episodes highlight the deep and unprecedented challenges for the media in trying to cover a President Trump. He simply doesn’t play by the same rules as every other person elected to White House in the modern era. (Two prime examples: Trump’s ongoing refusal to be covered by a protective pool or to hold a post-election news conference.) He sees his Twitter account as equal to or greater than the homepage of the New York Times or The Washington Post in terms of influence. And he believes that the media is not only fundamentally out of touch with average Americans but also clueless about just how out of touch we are.
I have some bad news for you, bro.
Trump’s twitter IS more influential than the New York Times and the Washington post.
Their combined circulation is just over 1 million, while Trump has 16 million twitter followers. And any tweet he writes will be reported on by every last media platform, both online and offline.
You’re nothing but pawns dancing in the palms of his hand.
Whereas other presidents might occasionally lash the media in public but play much nicer in private, Trump simply believes he doesn’t need to play that game. That belief, coupled with his famed unpredictability, makes it a very difficult task to cover his White House using any traditional blueprint.
…It puts us in the media in a very, very difficult spot — and ensures that this is going to be a deeply challenging four years for journalism. For that, we had the Worst Week in Washington. Congrats, or something.
If you think you’re in a difficult spot now, wait till you’re shuffling alongside Blacks in the welfare line. Because by all rights, that’s where all you cucked journalists will end up – if the Glorious Leader is merciful.
And your demise will coincide with our thunderous rise to prominence. We are already occupying the front and center of the mainstream consciousness.
The era of lies comes to an end, while the truth dawns upon the world, brought about by it’s true champions: the Republicans.
