Newly elected presidents are frequently afforded what is described as a “honeymoon period” in which the criticism of their campaign positions diminishes sharply as the public and media stand by to see what actually will develop as an administration takes shape. The honeymoon can sometimes extend well into the post-inauguration time frame, as it did with President Barack Obama, and it provides a breathing space during which the new arrivals in the White House can set an agenda and learn how the government actually works.

Unfortunately, President-elect Donald Trump will apparently not enjoy such a courtesy, at least as far as the media is concerned. The mainstream media was unrelentingly hostile to Trump both during the Republican primaries and the presidential campaign itself. The assertions emanating from media apologists contending that Trump actually benefitted from the massive press coverage that he did receive ignores the fact that the reporting was almost always negative. If Trump benefited at all it was only because of the public, seeing the outpouring of sheer hatred from a media that it already distrusted, came to believe that someone so vilified by a source so questionable must actually represent something worth supporting.

The rage of the media towards Trump continues unabated. The Washington Post, a scurrilous rag emanating out of the District of Columbia that claims to be a national “newspaper of record,” has a neocon editorial page that has never seen a war that it dislikes coupled with domestic and local reporting that is multicultural, inclusive and diverse to a fault. It’s globalist agenda driven hacks seamlessly churn out news stories that are more editorials for a certain worldview than they are reporting of actual events. It is “invade the world invite the world” at its finest and reminds one of Hillary Clinton at her most effusive.

    Once again we are not so entertained with these sad true story’s of our media masquerading as news organizations in their quest for furthering their propaganda message to the public. When or even if the MSM can divert from their current delusional path of presenting whatever agenized information they feed to the public and instead report facts excluding misleading characterizations is the question. The readers or listeners rejected their tabloid version for the most part during this last election season. But buried in the throws of their death ideology is their last ditch efforts at grasping at a life that is only destined to carry one off the proverbial cliff with them and threaten any chance at a healthy existence or perspective on life and our role in flourishing in it. I bet these die hard organizations will die hard, and we the Bruce Willis’s in this game of life will just have to be our own hero’s and release our grip on them as they fall to their own well deserved doom.
