Trump Attacks on the Media are Having a Devastating Effect

One of the main reasons that the liberal media hate president Trump is that Trump is having a devastating effect on the liberal media.

His rhetorical attacks on “fake news” are causing a major crisis for arrogant news outfits like CNN and liberal media outlets across the nation.

CNN’s viewership has fallen through the floor as the prime target of Trump’s wrath. Meanwhile the once-vaunted New York Times is suffering financially – largely as a result of outside pressures like the internet – but then Trump is piling on and it is obviously hurting the Times at the worst possible time.

The Times, which Trump refers to as “the failing New York Times”, has laid off hundreds of staff members and has vacated a full eight floors of its relatively new headquarters building in New York City due to financial woes. It is renting out those floors to get income for its everyday operations. Vanity Fair magazine even posted an article called Can Anyone Save the New York Times from Itself? And that was published in 2016 before Trump was even elected.

This is all happening at the same time that the public perception of the liberal media is plummeting and has been falling for many years.

Great. After decades of arrogance and slander against Republicans and conservatives, we conservatives had been hoping for a day of reckoning. That day now is here. Print newspapers all over America are in a financial freefall.

Interestingly Trump trade policies are adding to newspapers’ woes. Increased tariffs on paper from Canada are undermining these publications’ finances as costs go up.

You can tell that Trump is having a major impact when you read stories like this from the Association Press:

The publisher of the New York Times said Sunday he “implored” President Donald Trump at a private White House meeting this month to reconsider his broad attacks on journalists, calling the president’s anti-press rhetoric “not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.”

Awww, poor New York Times. For decades it has trafficked in and stoked divisiveness. It has relentlessly tarred and smeared anyone who is not liberal. It has lost all credibility in its vicious bias against president Trump; it is no longer taken seriously outside of its East Coast bubble.

That the Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger allegedly “implored” Trump to reconsider his rhetoric shows that the president indeed is doing great damage to the media. If this meeting had taken place 20 years ago Sulzberger would have “ordered” Trump to shut up. And if Trump were any other weakling Republican he would have dutifully obeyed.

So what else could Sulzberger do? He could not threaten Trump with negative coverage; the Times already is doing that at full speed.

Thus it is plain to see how the media have backed themselves into a corner along with the increasingly radical Democrat party. Trump tweeted about his meeting with Sulzberger:

Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, “Enemy of the People.” Sad!

This is fantastic. And Trump is correct. Any news outlet that lies and fabricates and shows such massive bias like the New York Times is indeed an “enemy of the people”. Any media that stokes hatred as the Times does is “an enemy of the people”.

And any media source that gleefully prints a letter to the editor saying that the president should be executed, as the Denver Post did recently, is indeed an “enemy of the people”. After all the truth, and some sense of decency and decorum, are the foundations of a free and open society. AP reports:

Sulzberger said he told Trump that while the phrase “fake news” is untrue and harmful, “I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people.’ I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.”

Threats against journalists? Lead to violence? Is he kidding? This is more Fake News. The violence in America today is being directed exclusively at Trump supporters – hundreds of physical attacks so far and three murders – and is being whipped up by anti-Trump media coverage every single day by the New York Times, CNN and all of the rest of the Trump-hating skunks.

Meanwhile the same New York Times is openly encouraging hatred of white people, as the liberal media have been doing for 50 years. This makes them truly an “enemy of the people”. The Daily Caller reports:

The New York Times’ newest editorial hire has a history of racist tweets against white people.

NYT announced on Wednesday that they hired Sarah Jeong to join their editorial board. Jeong previously wrote for the Verge and authored “The Internet of Garbage,” a book about online harassment and free speech.

Shortly after Jeong’s hire, Twitter users unearthed old tweets in which she expressed an extreme distaste for white people.

“Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” she tweeted in 2016.

Another tweet reads, “oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get from being cruel to old white men.”

She also once tweeted, “I dare you to get on Wikipedia and play “Things that white people can definitely take credit for,” it’s really hard…

So, for Jeong, who appears to be Asian and is reported to have been born in South Korea, here is a fact from Every bit of technology that powers Asia today was invented by white men in the US and Europe, from computers to cell phones to modern metallurgy to the internal combustion engine to electricity itself, along with hundreds of other ideas.

None of it originated in Asia. Thus obviously Ms. Jeong is suffering some serious type of inferiority complex.

By the way, Ms. Jeong, the United States lost 33,000 soldiers’ lives helping to keep South Korea free from communism in the Korean War of 1950 to 1953. Most of those soldiers were white men. Perhaps you should be a little more knowledgeable about your own history before shooting your racist mouth off.

Jeong is a Harvard law school graduate. This shows that Harvard is no longer a university.

Contact the Times at to protest Jeong.

Meanwhile Breitbart News reports:

Monday on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell addressed how President Donald Trump treats the press as “the enemy of the people.”

Mitchell likened Trump to Joseph Stalin, saying what the president attacking fake news is “very dangerous.”

“This is something that we first heard from Joseph Stalin. This is very dangerous. It undercuts democracy,” Mitchell said. “And for years and years, I’ve covered the State Department where we’ve tried to teach and help, advocate with new democracies how to train journalists and how we do journalism.”

Train journalists? No, Andrea, Fake News is what you and MSNBC and the New York Times traffic in every day and inspire all around the world. You “train” journalists to ignore the truth, spread propaganda and instill hatred, like Sarah Jeong has done. Stalin would be envious of the way that MSNBC and the New York Times have bent the news to a political agenda.

Meanwhile the conservative media are flourishing, including and hundreds of other conservative websites, along with conservative talk radio and Fox News which is called conservative only because it does not have a screaming liberal bias.

There is good reason for the rise in the alternative media: Americans are well informed. They know bias when they see it and they are tired of it. Rush Limbaugh recently celebrated 30 years on the air and he is more popular than ever. Amazing.

For decades we had only the big newspapers like the New York Times and the Big Three TV networks to give us all of our information. They were biased, but nothing like today.

As they have trended farther and farther to the left they have lost credibility. President Trump is piling on precisely as their credibility and finances already are sinking like a stone. knows about all of this from a local liberal newspaper in Massachusetts. This paper has veered to the loony left and is in serious financial trouble. Its parent company sold the paper in 2016 after years of marginal operations. Its new investors are doing everything possible to keep the paper open.

The paper is known for being seriously biased. Thousands of conservative residents will not even read it. It has shrunk in size but still seems to delight in reporting bad news, like crime, about a city that is very, very liberal and doing poorly economically. This liberalism came straight out of this newspaper’s editorial page. And the results are predictable: A failing economy as the newspaper’s advertising base disappears.

Meanwhile this same newspaper is hysterical with joy and gives obsessive coverage to the opening of marijuana shops all over the region, which is more bad news for a struggling county.
