Trump Hit – Sustains Black Eye
By Mainstream Media
You know the mainstream media says this every day, especially CNN, “Donald Trump takes to twitter to talk about things that don’t matter in an effort to hide the things that do matter.”
Sorry mainstream media, that is hands down what you are doing here.
A soldier killed in action matters, Trump’s response to it, it doesn’t matter as long as he actually made the effort.
He sucks at words, we all know this.
For an entire 24 hour period I have seen nothing but stories and even some I am pretty sure were not entire truths reported by the mainstream media with regards to Trump’s lack of empathy.
Excuse me, but could I get a show of hands of those that thought he actually had just one tiny ounce of empathy in his body? Anyone???
Trump according to many news outlets was a complete letdown in a phone call to offer condolences to the widow of a slain soldier which has since then, exploded into a sad display that swamped the White House on Wednesday, that ended in the soldier’s grieving mother accusing the president of disrespecting her family and a defiant Mr. Trump complaining that his words had been cynically twisted for political purposes.
Here’s a message to anyone who is getting a tweet, call or letter from Trump, do you bother to read his tweets, he is not eloquent and he is not empathetic.
Period and end of story.
I admit I do not write about too many cold cases that I look at these days but every cop, military member, special agent, that I have spoken to, when asked about getting killed in the line of duty informs me rather proudly, “this is part of the job, it’s what I signed up for.”
Trump is basically repeating what he has been told I am sure countless times.
To the media who is making this into a mountain, STFU already and report news, actual news, not your bloody opinionated, one sided story, but some actual news.
If I am not mistaken, the United States is an entire country, other things are happening here that warrant some attention.
And by the way, this is the very same thing that the Russian’s accomplished with the fake news, the overhyped sensationalism of stories, the fake social media accounts.
Swaying public opinion.
They without a doubt whatsoever learned it from us, our media who has to get every little detail, sensationalize every little story, they learned from us.
In fact this is just like walking up and recording a police beat down without the benefit of having the back story and running with it and suddenly reporting a story about police brutality.
This is bias reporting.
As for Trump, I actually support you if you shut down the mainstream media here, I watch it every single day and quite frankly it’s not news, it’s utterly sickening.
Report the news, not opinions, not experts that simply report what they think, because I can do that and a much better job of it, try sticking to reporting just the news.
I am actually quite skilled at forming my own opinion here.
CNN, WAPO, even FoxNews at times, should be labeled opinion pieces and not news.
At the end of the day if you actually watch the news they really reported on vs. opinionated story headlines, they are opinion broadcasts and not actual news.
They do what I do, only not quite as well because I call it exactly how I see it and right now I am seeing Trump’s point to calling them fake news broadcasters.
He is right.
A tag line the news often says, is that they are “reporting news that affects me.”
My message back is that you are not, you are trying to sway my opinion just like Russia is accused of doing.
How can we support imposing sanctions upon Russia for attempting to sway public opinion when we sit back and allow our own media to take an actual newsworthy report and turn it into a circus just to sway public opinion?
Talk about double standards.
