DONALD TRUMP – Replace CNN With Worldwide U.S. Propaganda Network
Donald Trump Attacks Cable News – Again
Another Monday, another attack on cable news by Trump.
Trump again took to Twitter and had this to say:
“While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way, something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT! ”
I’m sorry but doesn’t the US already have a worldwide propaganda network, FoxNews?
Not to mention that Trump is just tossing around completely false claims in that CNN’s ratings here in the US seem to be low.
They aren’t and while I feel they get carried away with every major news stories they air, they do have some pretty impressive ratings.
Of course this is not unlike past claims towards CNN, NBC, MSNBC notably, Trump never seems to knock his already existing propaganda network, FoxNews.
Earlier this month Trump’s ridiculous feud with CNN reached a high point when he and Jim Acosta got into it during a press conference where the two had an pretty heated exchange the day after Republicans were dealt big losses in the midterm elections.
The argument ended with Trump and CNN arguing over first amendment rights.
Yet, I have to sit back and look at the reality of the situation in all honesty here, Trump has a degree of a point.
The actual truth is that every cable news giant is already a propaganda churning network as it is.
Really, sit back and watch every single one for a week.
Here you will find biased reporting all the way around, we have some that you will find filling every news report with either pro-Trump or anti-Trump one sided reporting, sexism, some networks are clearly still full of racism while others support Trump in attempting to stifle the growth that we have achieved for our brothers and sisters in the LGBTQ communities.
The point being is that cable news does in fact abuse it’s first amendment rights because instead of actual reporting they are attempting to create fans through biased and not entirely truthful or factual reporting.
Every story is one sided with cable news these days.
Cable news, the mainstream media, they are far more responsible for creating some of the very major issues we face on a daily basis in the US.
They have by far, done way more damage than our President and Russian Meddling combined.
And because of that continual abuse, maybe the US should take a hardline against cable news and do away with it all together.
