Trump supporters have been labeled, by the mainstream media (MSM), as racist, xenophobic, ignorant, uneducated, angry, and, let us not forget, deplorable, as the MSM jumped on Hillary Clinton's statement about half Trump supporters being a basket of deplorables and un-redeemable, and now they are having a hissy fit because Trump supporters are telling them they "suck."
In the above video, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, makes the point that without the media and their biased reporting, Hillary Clinton couldn't get elected as "dog catcher," before the audience turns toward the CNN crew and starts chanting "CNN SUCKS."
Is Trump right?
According to a study conducted by MRC, yes he is, as they found that in the 12 weeks since the party conventions ended, when both Clinton and Trump became their parties official nominees, 91 percent of all broadcast news network coverage of Trump has been hostile or negative.
As for those “horse race” assessments that we excluded from our “good press/bad press” measure, those were decidedly anti-Trump as well. Out of 569 such statements about the health or prospects of Trump’s campaign, 85% (486) were negative, vs. 15% (83) that were positive. For Clinton, the spin was reversed: out of 432 assessments of her status in the race, 62% (268) were positive, vs. just 38% (164) that were negative.
REAPING WHAT YOU SOW
A Breitbart reported conducted an exhaustive search and found "zero incidences of members of the media being physically attacked or assaulted at Trump rallies," yet as they point out, these special snowflake journalists are still claiming that they are being victimized, are 'scared," that Trump supporters are "dangerous" and "menacing."
Breitbart offers some examples to prove their point:
On October 13th, the victimhood narrative kicked off in earnest when the "Committee to Protect Journalists" issued a statement claiming that Donald Trump is a "threat to press freedom." The same day Politico’s Ben Schreckinger ran an article titled, "Trump crowds rain hate on the press" and CNN‘s Jim Acosta claimed to have found a crudely written sign with a swastika and “"media" written on it.
The next day, on October 14th, the narrative of violent Trump supporters scaring the press was being pushed across the media. The Huffington Post‘s Ed Mazza wrote a piece titled, "Frenzied Donald Trump Supporters Are Turning On The Media — And It’s Getting Scary." The Washington Post‘s Paul Farhi wrote, "The press always got booed at Trump rallies. But now the aggression is menacing." Ed Kilgore at New York Magazine titled his piece, "Trump’s Dangerous Game of 'Beat the Press'." Tierney Mcafee‘s article in People Magazine was titled, "Press Corps with Trump Now Needs Police Escort as Crowd Shouts 'Whores!'." Even the Wall St. Journal got in on the action when Reid Epstein wrote, "Trump Rally-Goers Dismiss His Vulgarities, Offer Their Own for Clinton, News Media." Just to name a few.
The stories have continued until the time of this writing with similar articles in the New York Times, Media Matters, Washington Post (again), AlterNet, and on and on.
Read the entire piece at Breitbart as they show example after example of the MSM taking to social media to lament how unfairly they are being treated and how Trump supporters are "turning on them."
You think???!!!??? After bashing Trump supporters and spending 91 percent of their coverage spinning negative stories against Trump, while ignoring or downplaying Clinton's scandals as they lick her boots, they are surprised that Trump supporters are calling them out?
Here is a message for the MSM -"As I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same." - Job 4:8
Anybody interested in rolling up their sleeves and starting a campaign to boycott MSM sponsors?
First we would have to decide who to target. One network as a shot across the bow or shotgun all of MSM.
Make a list of all sponsors on the selected target, then go up the chain to the mega/muilti-national mother company and find all the products that they make. And we would need to find a web host to display the boycott list.
While we at ANP would happily host that list, looking around we find lists for advertisers at ABC, NBC and CBS, are already being hosted at the website Mad As Hell Boycott, including links to the advertisers websites and contact forms.
Another idea presented was to cancel all subscriptions to any MSM product, radio, television, newspapers, etc...
In that article we also pointed out that news media has suffered their worst year in 2015, and they are using digital revenue to mitigate those losses, so it is important to not click over to any MSM sites like the New York Times, Washington Post.... that can easily be done because for most browsers if you mouse over a link it will show you where it will take you to if you click. DO NOT CLICK ON ANY MSM SITES.
Alternative News websites can also refuse to link to any MSM site, if a quote is needed, find another Alternative News site that has used it and link to them instead.
While polling over the last decade has shown the public distrust the media, citing bias as their reasoning, and it is already having an affect as the mainstream media is losing revenue, it is not happening fast enough. We can all do our part to help them over the cliff, and we should.
The media is whining about being treated unfairly as they are treating not only Trump supporters unfairly, but the statistics on thier bias coverage against Trump shows that they are treating all Americans unfairly by refusing to do their jobs of informing the people of the truth, when that truth doesn't match their own ideology.
Some of the most iconic photos of Adolf Hitler show him at his most intense, eyes alight with frenetic energy as he addresses an audience or salutes a crowd.
Equally haunting, however, are another set of images that are oft-forgotten: In the years preceding World War II, news outlets from home magazines to the New York Times ran profiles of the Nazi leader that portrayed him as a country gentleman — a man who ate vegetarian, played catch with his dogs and took post-meal strolls outside his mountain estate.
Excellents clips provided below, showing the corruption within the MSM, where one CNN reporter admits the media has done all they could to "help" Clinton, stating the media is "the biggest ones promoting her campaign." Other clips show similar examples from other MSM outlets.
