So that means we all better get used to it..
The question really is 'Why' and we'll try to answer each side as brief and concise as possible so you come out of today's posting understanding clearly where the hate comes from
Simply put, they tried everything humanly possible to sabotage his 2016 Presidential election bid, going way beyond objectively critical reporting to choosing to make it their mission to destroy him..
Of course it failed but that was the goal..
Trump who unlike most politicians is not a coward, basically gave her a verbal punching right to the face and the relationship between the President and media has only soured further..
So that one is easy to understand..
You would loathe and despise any person or entity that spent over 18 months non-stop trying to destroy you and prevent you from obtaining a life goal you were pursuing, so Trump's reactions make perfect sense
There really is not one reason that is more than any other.. its just a collection of different factors which have been exasperated by the fact Trump the New Yorker does not take shit from people which is been a key to the growth of his business empire
So let's delve a bit..
To the media, Presidents may come and go.. They stay.. They're the gatekeeper
They collectively see Trump as a clown.. a carnival barker.. a TV pitchman which is even lower than that of an actor..
Think of Washington DC like an extremely elitist old-money Country Club where all that matters is your pedigree.. Wealth and individual success does not generate respect in this club..
That's how the media establishment like the political establishment see Trump and nothing outside of a major war won or 9/11 x 100 will ever allow Trump to garner any respect or fondness from any of them
Trump beat The Bitch..
Everyone expected Hillary to win.. Even us at A&G and dreaded every moment of the probability of it..
Its been the worst kept political secret that of course never came to be.. When Hillary decided to originally run for NY Senator, we all knew it wasn't to serve others.. It was to spring board the eventual Presidential run
But then its 2016.. And now their beloved Queen to be was being challenged by this man, Trump they saw as classless, uncouth, foul-mouthed and just an utter offense to every delicate, dainty sensibility the media possessed..
Since Hillary couldn't seem to defeat him on her own, they'd have to double down then double some more to work to ensure this Neanderthal did not win
Globalism.. Open Borders.. The UN being Supreme power with nation rights gone.. Extreme tolerance for that cult-faith Islam.. A nation where those who work pay for those including welfare and healthcare.. A nation where anyone Caucasian who isn't filled with race-guilt is evil and to be shut up and shit on..
And then add to it, Trump openly attacking their precious chocolate-skinned President as a 'disaster', a Cocoa Krispie monkey who many in the media probably love even more than their own spouses or children and stating he would systematically dismantle Obama's legacy...
You can see from that context how this war against Trump is so personal
He even directed his attacks personally at CNN head Jeff Zucker at one point in the meeting..
We don't know too many people who can take such truth-based negativity directed square at them with a smile and a Jesus-like forgiveness, and the media have more fragile egos than even Congresspeople
And at every opportunity, Trump himself doubles down to attack them when they come after him with fake news, non news and purposeful holding back of information that is positive because it goes against their narrative that he's a fake and a failure.
The media deeply hated Nixon even before Watergate but he pretty much played the polite game, was civil and non-antagonistic and the media responded in kind to a point..
Now the last question that needs to ask is why do networks like CNN and newspapers like NY Times keep up the attacks when it has to hurt their business model?
Fox News was #1 with on average nearly 2.2 million viewers during the same time period
Now as for the Times, even though they refuse to admit their numbers are dwindling, truth is that back in 2013, 1.8 million people subscribed to the Times in some form-- print, digital, etc..
Today it is around 1.2 million..
So how do these entities survive financially?
Niche news has niche audiences that are more than happy to devote time and resources to entities that tell them their worldview is right even though it is of course not..
Also advertisers today are extremely scared to offend anyone, and while Conservatives usually do not make a stink when companies or TV/print ads are blatantly offensive such as promoting bi-racial families and homosexual & transgender relations as normal), putrid Liberals do..
We said this yesterday.. Say it again today..
Ultimately Trump is going to have to choose to either deal with the parasitic left-leaning media like Lincoln and Woodrow Wilson did or to allow them to run amok like LBJ and Nixon did..
And if Trump does nothing but to stay on present course of tweeting and press conference venting, and think that's the solution, he is looking at one messy Disaster, to use one of his favorite words
