I'm not in the mood to do a big blog post on this one... really, what can you say? It's so disgustingly obvious Americans cannot get facts in the news from major so-called 'news' sources anymore. Gone are the days are when tv news stations and newspapers reported the facts and left their personal opinions to the editorial sections.
I never really had a dog in this fight. I stopped watching television in Fall of 1998 or 1999 when I was in my 20's (I wised up pretty fast). From there it used to be easy to get whatever news I wanted online - it was better than having a TV anchor person spoon feeding me their version. However, in the last few years it's even difficult to find the truth online from 'reputable' main stream media because frankly; they aren't reputable anymore.
There is too much money involved. Too many big wigs at the TV stations in bed with politicians. Too many immature and young people put in positions about 10 years above their age level. Too much shock-and-awe. Too much bias.
Too much yellow journalism.
Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering or sensationalism.
Today (right now) there are some pretty big pro-President Trump rallies going on. I checked social media to see videos and photos of the huge crowds.
Just for fun (well, not fun, but you know....) I went to NBC News and CNN to see what was on their homepage. Because if it was that ... well, if it was Mr. Obama, the headlines and photos would be FILLING their homepage. They would be kissing his behind, and making him out to be the next Messiah. That man could lie through his teeth, disregard our Constitution, say whatever he wanted whether it was true or not, and the media would pee their pants and swoon - a few were probably brought to orgasm just looking at him (there are a couple celebrities that come to mind). Personally I had to hold back nausea and vomit... I tried not to look at him much. He seemed disgustingly evil to me. Sly like a fox, and intelligent in a creepy way. When you don't watch TV it makes it a little easier... and the little red x in the corner of my computer screen helped.
But where was I?
So, just take a look for yourself.
You will see almost NOTHING positive about our current President because they are butt-hurt over him. Even positive issues and stories are flipped around so they can put a negative spin on it. And those rallies going on right now with huge crowds? Nary a mention or coverage of them.
The double standards and bias is sickening.
Our media makes me sick... and believe it or not I was not a Trump supporter before the election.
I sure as heck would never in a million years vote for that other person (that woman) running; But he is our PRESIDENT. And the media is sickening. They need to put on their big boy and girl panties and get back to doing their JOBS and leave their pissy attitudes at home in the morning.
HEY LOOK! If you scroll down the page far enough you can see a TINY BLURB about the rallies... but look at how it's presented. A HUGE photo of that unethical, morally bankrupt liar pants at a stupid stamp unveiling while the President gets a little less-than-half size photo screenshot from a little video, and he's barely in the shot.
If President Trump found the cure for cancer the media would still make it out to be negative and find fault.
My mind is just blown each day looking at the yellow journalism staring us right in the face.
