We’re still two years away from real heat of the 2020 presidential campaign, but it might be time for the mainstream media to start filing in-kind contributions to the Trump 2020 reelection campaign.
Over the last 18 months, many in the media have abandoned any appearance of objectivity and balance in favor of an all-out attempt to further the political agenda of the left — namely the impeachment of Donald Trump.
With every aggravating month that Trump stays firmly ensconced in the White House, it’s clear that Trump is the mainstream media’s Moby Dick and that they’re Captain Ahab in their deranged pursuit of the great white whale. However, they should be reminded that it didn’t end so well for Captain Ahab.
There have been excuses along the way that mistakes were made in some of the reporting, but at a certain point, systematic “honest mistakes” cease to be honest. They’ve become intentional.
Last week’s “reporting” that Donald Trump had somehow referred to all illegal immigrants as “animals” instead of simply referring to MS-13 gang members was so blatant it was laughable. It was a hit job that one would expect to see from a partisan campaign or campaign committee. Which furthers the argument that the mainstream media, is in fact, the opposition party.
A lot of us get the joke except apparently the media: We know that many of them masquerade as journalists when in fact they’re nothing more than partisan operatives with their own specific worldview and narrative that may or may not have anything to do with the truth.
