We were also taught there are also the “mass media” and the “elite media.” The “Economist” magazine might be considered one of the “elite” media and TV news is the “mass” media – that’s why it’s full of Talking Heads full of mass ignorance and mass Hubris.
It's why mass criticism can't be done except through the mass media (which is targeted overwhelmingly toward the not-too-bright – on purpose) - and since there is no such thing as objectivity what we get, overwhelmingly, is just their opinions. For that matter, the elite media is also just opinion, only much better quality. Obviously the Mainstream Media is hysterically convinced it’s “objective and “elite” when it’s neither.
This means the more non-objective media (again, there can be no other) broadcasts criticisms of Trump, the more I like him. Because the mass media has no honor and lies all the time and therefore you can’t trust anything from them. They’re trying to destroy Trump because he doesn’t take them seriously and instead mocks them as liars and therefore the enemy. And the Mainstream Media is desperately hoping they can, somehow, influence the public as to what Trump “really is” and it will turn them against him. Which isn’t going to happen.
I worked on four newspapers as a reporter and one as an editor. What I found, even in college, is that many reporters are not that far from being morons. They didn't realize a lot of their reporting was just their opinion - and when they talked about their opinions in person they thought they were speaking the objective truth about things when in reality they didn’t know what they were talking about.
I remember in college some 20-year-olds running their mouths when they were clueless about what they were talking about. Goodness, 20-year-olds convinced they know the truth about everything! Such childish arrogance!
For example, Trump is often portrayed as a Nazi (Trump is not anywhere near perfect but he’s no Nazi) – there are many photoshopped pictures of him in a Nazi officer’s uniform. When I’ve asked people what “Nazi” means they very rarely know. It means “National Socialist German Workers” party, and when I’ve explained to people the closest ideology in the U.S. to the Nazi ideology is the Democratic party, they are of course completely outraged. “No, it’s the Republicans – they’re the Nazis! Trump is a Nazi! I saw a picture of him dressed as one!”
It got to the point - and has been for decades - that I am not interested at all in what the media, or politicians, or leftists, say about anything. I don't believe them at all. To me it’s just entertainment. And that's based on decades of personal experience.
I've also found some college professors don't know what they are talking about either. Economists? Don't make me laugh (I call people such as (Paul Krugman) "high-IQ idiots" And (Krugman) should have been fired a long time ago. He’s that bad.).
I watched some European politician recently say Trump was now a danger to Europe. I started laughing (no one not born and raised in the United States can understand this country, although many think they do).
As for Trump, he is not a politician (although he is one now, although thank God he doesn’t act like one). I'm sure a lot of the media and politicians and college professors are horrified by him – “Oh my God, the lumpenproletariat voted in Hitler!” And that makes me gleeful. I having some good times watching all of them throw conniption fits. It's very entertaining.
If I had to do it over again I would not have gotten a degree in Journalism. I left the field as a professional decades ago. I would have done something more useful, like dig ditches.
Thank God for the internet. The smart ones have moved there, leaving the mentally-challenged in the "professional" field. They'll never figure out what they are, though. Invincible ignorance and arrogance will do that to you.
