Trust in the media is at an all time low. Guess why.

Who ya going to trust, the fact checkers with the media or the bullshit that I shovel at you?
Courtesy of CNN Money:

While Americans' faith in media has been in decline for over a decade, this year's findings represent a sharp drop from the previous eight years, when between 40 and 45 percent of Americans expressed trust. 

The change is largely fueled by the aggressive anti-media rhetoric of Donald Trump and other Republicans, Gallup said. 

"With many Republican leaders and conservative pundits saying Hillary Clinton has received overly positive media attention, while Donald Trump has been receiving unfair or negative attention, this may be the prime reason their relatively low trust in the media has evaporated even more," Gallup said in its press release. 

"It is also possible that Republicans think less of the media as a result of Trump's sharp criticisms of the press," the release continued. "Republicans who say they have trust in the media has plummeted to 14% from 32% a year ago. This is easily the lowest confidence among Republicans in 20 years."

By contrast among Democrats trust in the media only dropped four points, 51% this year as opposed to 55% last year. 

Don't imagine for a second that this is an accident.

THIS is what Donald Trump and the Republican party are counting on.

Now when the news reveals something scandalous about Donald Trump the conservative voters assume it is a left wing hit job and it does nothing to hurt his poll numbers.

And the poll numbers are ONLY trusted if they show the race is tight or favor Trump, and if that is the case he gives them his stamp of approval on Twitter or during one of his rallies.

We have asked ourselves how such a clearly unqualified and dangerous candidate has made it this far, well this is our answer.

    Wow the ex sister in law really had a lot of plastic surgery on her face. She looks better though. Her features were somewhat masculine before. Good luck to her.

    I don't think the right wingers care what the press has to say about little Donnie, he fulfills all their bigoted dreams. They are not voting on facts but emotional hatred.

    Personally I lost a lot of confidence in the press to do their job because they allow Donnie lies to go unchallenged, have given him way too much free air time and over look his unethical and possible illegal dealings.

    If he wins none of this will matter because we will no longer have a free press.

      If he should win, which I highly doubt, I suspect you will see a huge percentage of the population rally together like never before.
      Don't forget, there's more of us progressive types than there are of those relics/social conservative/xtians.

    This Trump birther crap shows he is an ignorant racist. Trump said he's not ready to say President Obama is an American. HUH? Not ready? Then get the fuc_ out of the presidential race.

    Republicans did not denounce the birther crap and set the stage for this unqualified racist candidate. The media lets the lies go by unchallenged. It is a scary situation!

    C this>"Donald Trump was one of those donors. Walker met with Trump for 45 minutes at his Fifth Avenue office in New York City, and that same day Trump wrote a check for $15,000 to Wisconsin Club for Growth.

    As he ran for president a few years later, Trump boasted about his donations to Walker. Yet he never gave to Walker’s campaign; he only gave to the Wisconsin Club for Growth.

    “I will tell you that our system is broken,” Trump famously declared. ” I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And do you know what? When I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them, they are there for me." VOTE HRC!

    Listening to rump holding auditions and gasing the public with tiny men from Russia standing around him. He waves his tiny fingers and the freaky deplorable and rejects appear. And there ya have it. rump network tv.

  8. Wow! CNN just admitted they were 'Rick rolled' by Trump! The campaign announced he would comment on the birther issue, so the cable networks went to live coverage -and got over 20 minutes of military heroes supporting & praising Trump. Then 20 seconds of Trump blaming Hillary (falsely) for starting the birther movement, claiming that he ended it (also false), and then stating that Obama was born in the US and walking off the stage.
    CNN followed with a long discussion of how despicable this was.

      *THIS* is why trust in the media has deteriorated.

      It has little to do with Trump attacking them in the "lame stream media" ala Palin.

      It has to do with their lack of professionalism and effectiveness in covering this election.

      From the start they treated Trump as a viable candidate. They MADE HIM. They created him by failing to do their due diligence and report on every fucking lie he ever told while at the same time blowing up every blemish on Hilary and hammering it over and over.

      Of course no one trusts them any more. It has become obvious they are controlling this election. They are choosing the candidates.

      They are trying to make a horserace out of what should have been a sorry done deal. A serial lying reality star against a seasoned knowledgable public servant.

      If people no longer trust the media they have only themselves to blame because they weren't doing their jobs.

      Anyone that tried to do their job was muzzled by the media. Keith Olbermann. Brian Williams.

      It is a sorry day when the public looks to our late night comics for honest political reporting rather than what should be the news.

      Typical Trump.

      Press baited under false pretenses, 25 min. of ME ME ME and then a short "Oh, and by the way, Obama was born in the U.S."

      It's about time the media started to cut him off from his free media ride. At the very least they can fact check him immediately after he spews whatever filthy lie du jour he has his panties in a twist over.

      It is my belief that the vets surrounding Trump at his new hotel opening received 'free stays' at the soft opening of the hotel.

      They stood with for the honor of staying at his hotel. Quid pro quo, that's how Donald rolls. I have no idea on how to verify the honor of 'free hotel stays' for vets.

    I lost faith in the press when Connie Chung said whisper it to me to Newt Gingrich's mom. Then there's lyin Brian. And the news tells you every little insignificant thing they can dredge up. Then the news repeats what's trending. They are mouth pieces, nothing more. I think the wave of the future are blogs like this. I mean sure you can feed bullcrap into the net, just like Alex Jones, but those of us who really want the truth will find it. Those of us who grew up glued to the tv watching the Jon Benet Ramsey, OJ Simpson, and Lindsay and Brittany breakdowns, are lost causes. For the last twenty years Fox news, and other less than news agencies having been spiking the kool aid. Now we can't tell what's real or not. Misinformation. The stuff of KGB and CIA. We were just easy customers, weren't we?

    Trump, the entertainer, sucked all the oxygen and constantly complains of being treated unfairly. I'd love to see him grilled as Hillary was for weeks, he'd change his tune pretty quickly.
    Today he said Obama was born in the US and that Hillary started the birther meme when she lost to Obama.
    I suppose that makes sense to someone like Donald, after years of saying he's paid investigators and no one can find a birth certificate. The night of the dinner, as he and Slovene Scholar and Plagiarizer were clueless, POTUS got Bin Laden. Funny how GWBush isn't mentioned. Especially after denying caring where he is or if he's dead or alive. If POTUS Obama said half of that, he'd be excoriated. GOTV, people, Trump can't have his fingers on the code while being pres. in name only, Vlad Poooootin is Trump's hero and puppetmaster.

      I'd like to see the debate moderators grill him.

      Ask a question and when he starts to birdwalk or hem and haw or whatever interrupt with "Excuse me. Excuse me" and then repeat the question and demand he answer it. If he still doesn't, then CUT HIM OFF! It's about time Trump was treated as an adult rather than a whiney little bitch.

    According to the lawyers, trump organized and paid hundreds of operatives through out this country to work magic. Several small internet and media's corps purchased, as we know major infection in all areas. Of course good old fox nation helped and such. Its fairly clear, stupid, amateur and moronic. Many many victims from this dangerous outrageous example of political espionage, treason and human shame..


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
