Donald Trumps term in office is only four-weeks old but hes got the liberal media and Hollywood elites losing their collective minds. Its hard to keep track of all the nasty accusations theyve made.
On Trumps temporary travel limits, theyve charged hes echoed Nazi language in his effort to turn off that lamp on the Statue of Liberty, that has resulted in a reaction that, as Huffington Posts Howard Fineman concluded, Osama Bin Laden, himself, would have prayed for.
Chuck Todd and Dan Rather have claimed hes currently mired in a scandal on the levels of Iran-Contra and Watergate.
The media have also questioned Trumps mental stability. FNCs Shephard Smith ranted Its crazy what were watching every day, MSNBC contributor Christopher Dickey warned his viewers people in European governments think that Trump has lost his mind, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann charged I dont believe him sane, flatly, and The View co-host Joy Behar asked Dr. Phil Do you think thats a mental illness, narcissism, and if so is he fit to be president?
The outrage over Trump has gotten so-out-of hand, some in the press are even fearing for their very lives as MSNBC correspondent Katy Tur worried: Since 2000, been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in Russia who came out against the government there. Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesnt agree with him here. Do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down?

The hard-left media is killing its credibility.

Yes, and as Martha Stewart would say “That’s a good thing”.
Short damn ride to get there.
It was a very short drive.
Like the boy who cried wolf, if there comes a day that Trump actually does do something bad, no body will believe them.
Without realizing it they are inoculating Trump from any (true) scandal.
ROFL! Green tea spurting out my nose!
Keith freakin Olberman calling someone insane?!
OMG! You cannot buy comedy like that! Gosh, I miss him.
While the media is talking about the current hubbub, now would be a good time to be firing whole departments of the alphabet agencies. There’s only so many reporters and broadcast time to talk about stuff. Keep them rushing to the next thing.
Yep. And I’ll keep my tag line as long as it still applies.
The goal is to destroy him. They do not have any principles, and will do whatever it takes. I hate the media, as never before.
Good. Media has been a bias tool of the global communism for decades.
No, he’s just giving them an opportunity to show what was beneath the facade all along.
The MSM has done more damage to American than the terrorists.
I say he is removing their masks.
At his next rally, he should say ‘wanna know what the media’s really all about? Watch the classic They Live’.
MenSeekingMen would spontaneously combust.
Trying once again to get rid of this "fairy tale" (similar to Linda Graham (RINO-SC)
I think this Gallup poll is overly generous, but it proves the point that there is little upside for the media. They have already lost the vast majority of Republicans and Independents, their only hope is to stem the bleeding of Democrats for a while longer. The age trend is just as bad for them, with 38% of people over 50 rating their trust level as "great deal" or "fair amount" vs. only 25% for those age 18-49. As the generation that grew up with newspapers and three networks is replaced by the social media generation, it's not going to get better for the MSM.
The Media = Mental Disorder
If you’re taking flak you must be overy the target
