I noticed the same thing when I was an editor. The reporters were ignorant and I would never allow any reporter to interview me. The publisher was a second-rater; he hired third-raters, and those third-raters hired fourth-raters. No wonder so many newspapers have gone out of business. The good journalists have moved to the Internet.
Not that has had any effect on the MSM. They’re still as ignorant as hell.
What newspaper currently did an editorial that Trump wasn’t qualified to be President? USA Today? Are they kidding? I’ve never read the paper. Do they really think anyone cares what they think about politics? Or anything?
Does any newspaper think anyone cares what they think about politics? Apparently so. These newspapers are taking themselves way too seriously. But then, they always have.
I haven’t watched the TV news in years. I had starting watching the Sunday political programs for a while but gave it up. There was some coverage of Hillary Clinton’s corruption and lying but nothing about her being sick. Mostly it was about how Trump has finally Done It To Himself. And always reported with glee.
The MSM clearly thinks that somehow they’ll have the desired effect and then the people will see through Donald Trump!
Some of the PBS programs were hosted by people I had never heard of. Not only that I had never heard of any of their panelists. Of course none of them made any sense.
I thought, “Who the hell pays these people and why?” What’s their audience? A few thousand people, if that?
Chris Wallace? George Stephanopoulos? What the hell? Again, who cares what they think about anything?
I figure most of the MSM thinks people shouldn’t be allowed to vote. Just let the MSM pick the President. What ignorance and arrogance!
I recently saw a Sunday political program discussing “elite” opinion. As always I thought, “Are they serious?” Michael Moore was interviewed. He’s elite opinion? I’ve never seen any of his movies. I don’t know anyone who has.
Oddly, Moore correctly diagnosed the problem – the anger by working people at their dispossession and the destruction of the middle class – but he thought the cure was to vote for Hillary Clinton. He also was convinced Trump was going to be elected.
At least the moderator got it correct when he talked about the disconnect between the MSM and the people. The MSM represents only itself and not the people.
Apparently not one major newspaper has endorsed Trump. What are they going to do if it becomes President? Fire all their editorial writers they way they should?
Har har! Don’t make me laugh! They’ll still continue to babble nonsense, be wrong as usual – and continue to be ignored by the public.
