It’s crystal clear now, for all to see, how the mainstream media operates. From the “sources inside” references, which almost always remain unnamed, to the provocative slant it chooses to use when covering any story involving President Donald Trump.
While there is certainly no shortage of reasons to disagree with Trump, the mainstream media has flooded the infosphere with so much fake news, that reality and truth are nearly extinct.
Take, for instance, the telephone conversation Trump had on Saturday the 28th of January, with Australian Malcom Turnbull. Starting with the piece by Greg Miller and Phillip Rucker, a slurry of negative words describing Trump’s behavior while on the phone call with Turnbull. Trump’s behavior was described as having “blasted” the PM, and Trump reportedly “boasted” about his win over Hillary Clinton.
Later, the two writers stated Trump called the conversation “the worst” he’d had with other world leaders and said it was the “worst deal” for the U.S. which reportedly involved the resettling of over 1200 more refugees from Australia.
Breaking with journalistic optimism, the pair of Washington Reporters wrote, “The characterizations provide insight into Trump’s temperament and approach to the diplomatic requirements of his job as the nation’s chief executive, a role in which he continues to employ both the uncompromising negotiating tactics he honed as a real estate developer and the bombastic style he exhibited as a reality television personality.
After Miller and Rucker’s story was published, the rest of the mainstream media seemed to jump onto the bandwagon which attempted to portray the sitting U.S. president as a type of cry-baby, someone who cannot control his emotions, actions, or words, and as an individual which is severely difficult to work with. The story may have been intentionally twisted as it began to take on a whole new meaning.
The Independent ran the storyline, “The deeper reason we should be worried Donald Trump hung up on Australia PM Turnbull.” The obvious fear tactics appear to be working. There’s still ongoing political unrest from the left, with even one comedian and actress, Sarah Silverman calling for an overthrow of the democratically elected Trump.
CNBC ran a similar story entitled “In phone call with Australia PM, Trump berates and then hangs up on him: Washington Post.” Note the word choice of “berates,” a negative connotation is implied in the word choice, further alienating the American people from any sense of trust in Trump’s judgment.
