What we’ve seen with the media and this president is just ugly. The media so wanted a Hillary presidency. They were so all in for her. But they were denied by the “deplorables” and the #oldmedia HATE that. They can not stand that their heads were handed to them by their “lessers.” The folks within the #oldmedia are beside themselves that their worldview has been rejected, and even more scary for the #oldmedia, that their worldview is likely only to be rejected more in the future. The predictions of the Internet empowerment of everyday people have finally come to pass and the people have rejected the information gate keepers. As such the gatekeepers are throwing a fit.
Yes Trump can be boorish. And yes he certainly is not the small government libertarian we’d ideally like to see – not by a long shot. But he is not the demon the #oldmedia characterize him to be. And remember these same #oldmedia were ready to coronate HILLARY CLINTON for crying out loud, arguably the most corrupt person to stand for the nomination of one of the 2 “major” parties.

Trump may have a habit of exaggeration and gratuitous feuding that could cause problems with his presidency. But we would never quite know that from the media. In just his first month in office, reporters have already peddled dozens of fake news stories designed to discredit the President—to such a degree that little they now write or say can be taken at face value.
No, Trump did not have any plans to invade Mexico, as Buzzfeed and the Associated Press alleged.
No, Trump’s father did not run for Mayor of New York by peddling racist television ads, as reported by Sidney Blumenthal.
No, there were not mass resignations at the State Department in protest of its new leaders, as was reported by the Washington Post.
No, Trump’s attorney did not cut a deal with the Russians in Prague. Nor did Trump indulge in sexual escapades in Moscow. Buzzfeed again peddled those fake news stories.
No, a supposedly racist Trump did not remove the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. from the White House, as a Time Magazine reporter claimed.
No, election results in three states were not altered by hackers or computer criminals to give Trump the election, as implied by New York Magazine.
No, Michael Flynn did not tweet that he was a scapegoat. That was a media fantasy endorsed by Nancy Pelosi.
