I’ll again repeat I wish I hadn’t got it. I left the field decades ago.
The three newspapers I worked for are now out of business. I had only one good boss. The rest were bad to the point of incompetence. Most reporters are leftists and I’ve never been able to figure out why.
Being leftists they of course hate Trump and want him gone.
What almost none of them realize is that the MSM didn’t make Trump and they can’t unmake him. No matter what they do they are helpless. No matter what they say they aren’t going to change anyone’s mind.
Apparently the MSM still thinks it’s 1974 when it helped get rid of Nixon – and it’s the only victory it’s had since that year.
I no longer read or buy newspapers and for decades I had ceased watching the news. The only reason I started watching again was to watch them froth at the mouth about Trump. It was amusing.
But now it’s gotten boring and I’ve stopped again. I quit watching the Sunday morning political programs. All of them are the same thing – having hissy fits about Trump.
I recently saw Chuck Todd on TV start fellating the senile John McCain and I thought, “That’s it” and I turned the program off. I’ll never watch it again.
I get all my news off of the internet and have for years. I do read Bing news every day but that’s free. It’s still distorting and lying about Trump.
The MSM isn’t going to go out of business but for a long time newspapers were dropping like flies. That seems to have stopped.
Newspapers are supported by advertising. How in the hell can newspapers on the internet can stay in business when they have no advertising is beyond me. Who’s supporting them – George Soros?
Very few people trust the MSM anymore. Even they know that. And they are finally realizing they can’t ignore or insult Flyover Land anymore. They were stunned by how influential the people who live there are – they’re the ones who put Trump in office.
The younger people I know today don’t read newspapers or watch TV news anymore. Most of the ones I know get their news from YouTube. They don’t even read blogs.
All this makes me wonder where the MSM is going to be in 20 years. Will it still be the same? Because of the internet I very much doubt it.
For a long time the MSM was claiming those on the internet weren’t “real” journalists. That’s stopped because the internet is so influential – too much competition for the MSM.
And only with competition will you get the truth. That’s what the free market in opinion does – in the long run the truth will win out.
