New Temporary DNC Chief Donna Brazille didn’t wait long to show her media bias – she also has been working for ABC – by tipping off Hillary on media stories and issues, according to latest Wiki-Leaks
Rigged Election? You Bet
TRUMP FIRST TO EXPOSE MEDIA BIAS – ELECTION BIAS NOW TOP PUBLIC CONCERN
‘Journalism’ : ‘Writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation’(part of the full definition of Journalism from Mariam Webster)
‘Media bias’ is the bias or perceived bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered. The term “media bias” implies a pervasive or widespread bias contravening the standards of journalism, rather than the perspective of an individual journalist or article.(Wikipedia)
Romney didn’t do it. McCain didn’t do it. Nor did any of the 20 other candidates who ran for President this past year
If Nothing Else, the outspoken Donald Trump has been able, for the first time, to really Expose the Rampant Media Bias in America. That’s one of the reasons he’s the Republican candidate for President, because he has a voice and isn’t afraid to use it while standing up for disenfranchised Americans. And, even with other negatives, he has done something here that needed to be done. In the same vein, he’s exposed the failings of the current Administration and Hillary. And, even for his faults – he’s opened eyes while giving Americans an alternative to the same ‘ol corrupt government America has had to deal with at least the past eight years.
And that’s one of the reasons Trump has resonated with much of America, tired of the ‘same ‘ol same ‘ol.’ And, it probably took someone so outspoken (and, yes, maybe TOO outspoken at times) to shake up America. Now, others (Vice President Pence, Rep. Jeff Sessions, Newt Gingrich, etc. ) including the rare Democrat are taking up the cause.
No wonder people like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) must have seen something themsleves to want to risk their own safety to further expose the most corrupt U>S> Administration in history. Trump has come along at the right time and right place to further try to right the sinking ship that Hillary Clinton wants to continue sinking by her promises to mostly continue the policies of the Obama Administration.
Even Trump haters who care at all about our constitution and checks and balances must recognize if not appreciate what Trump has brought out. Freedom of the Press doesn’t mean riding roughshod over the TRUTH, which is exactly what we’ve been seeing more than ever during the contentious election process. (And, don’t blame it on the election). Back in the late 1960s this writer was taught in journalism class the importance of including stories in proportion to their perceived importance while representing BOTH SIDES of issues. While there will always be some question as to what is ‘perceived,’ there is no question as to being able to giving EQUAL COVERAGE to both sides of a story….
23% to 1% Coverage of Trump ‘Sex-capade’ (Anti-Trump) vs. Wiki-Leaks (Anti-Hillary)
When two big stories come up at the same time, the media will always go with the one that favors the liberal cause or that hurts conservatives .Most recently, Media Research Center shows a 23% to 1% disparity of negative coverage of Trump ‘sexcapage’ over the Wiki-leaks that affect the Clinton campaign. But, take most any competing stories….
Below are two random examples of media bias, again favoring Democrats
If it’s favorable to Trump, they dump it , as above . If it’s Unfavorable, they flaunt it , as below
Goes hand in hand with believing the Media Bias towards the Obama Administration and Democrats (MRC)
Many frustrated with the continued media bias have come up with memes to express their disatisfaction:
(No Need for name change, oh so sour)
Raging MadCow , MSNBC
Rare image without her black mansuit
Over-rated Kelly , FOX
She thinks she’s a model and acts like a liberal but somehow ended up on FOX TV
All Biased Coverage
Nothing But Crap
RADIO and NEWSPAPER
While we’ve mainly addressed television media here, It’s true that one area Republicans and Conservatives have a voice is on radio, however , even those programs are not guised as ‘news’ but everyone knows them to be opinion talk shows. So , when it comes to media news, whether TV, newspaper or radio, there’s no contest with the Left controlling all but Fox – and even Fox is more balanced than the other networks ,according to above poll. We still haven’t spent any time with the liberal newspaper media – and radio news – which we will save for another time.
WHY THE MEDIA BIAS?
That’s a whole other topic which we can address at a future time. It’s largely centered around cronyism and favors; much like the promises and giveaways we see from the Democratic parties in power to the people we see with regard to favors given the media in return for coverage, with more today than ever. One has to wonder what they’re actually teaching today in journalism schools
