The liberal mainstream media continues to broadcast that the vast majority of Americans are upset and disapprove of Trump’s performance. They are still telling the American people that Trump has the lowest approval ratings of any newly inaugurated President in history.
But how accurate is the liberal mainstream media and can they be trusted to report the truth?
From what I’ve seen, the liberal mainstream media is guilty of the worst form of journalism there is. They deliberately twist the truth and report it in such a way as support their ultra-left agenda instead of reporting it accurately and truthfully.
Many years ago, I had the privilege of talking to a journalist about an article he wrote. I was surprised when he reported a story accurately, especially knowing that he was more liberal than conservative. He was quite adamant in telling me the cardinal rule of journalism is to learn to check your personal biases and agenda at your front door when you leave your house every day to go to work. A journalist is required to report the facts as they are, not to twist them, misrepresent them or lie about them as so many of today’s journalists do. He told me that the lowest form of journalism is modifying the facts of a story to fit a personal agenda. He referred to it as sleaze journalism and that’s what one sees today on most of the mainstream media outlets, especially ones like MSNBC, CBS, CNN and others.
So how accurate are the many mainstream media reports claiming that Trump’s approval ratings are so very low and that the majority of the American people view his performance unfavorably.
According to the latest Rasmussen Reports Poll:
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.”
“The latest figures include 39% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 38% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +1.”
Many opponents to President Trump react like his actions are a shock and surprise as if they came out of the blue. Yet, a poll taken last May indicated that a majority of Americans favored an America first foreign policy which is behind Trump’s immigration order:
“Sixty percent (60%) agree with the statement: ‘No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and enemies put their countries above ours, and we, while being fair to them, must do the same.’ Just 17% disagree with this statement, while 23% are not sure.”
“Trump made this comment in a recent speech outlining his foreign policy agenda if elected president, but when asking this question, Rasmussen Reports did not specify who said it.”
Even before Trump’s controversial immigration order, a majority of voters indicated they were more concerned about America than the rest of the world:
“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters say that when thinking about problems in the world, they are more interested in finding a solution that most benefits the United States. Forty-two percent (42%) disagree and say they are more interested in finding a solution that is better for the whole world…”
“Seventy-eight percent (78%) of all voters believe Trump is more interested in finding a solution that most benefits the United States. Just 10% believe he is more interested in doing what’s better for the whole world. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.”
“This is starkly different from how voters perceived former President Obama. Only 23% felt Obama cared more about solutions that most benefit the United States, while most (58%) said he was more concerned with what’s better for the world.”
This sure isn’t what the liberal mainstream media would have you believe, It seems they are focusing on all the protesters who are more concerned about foreigners than they are about Americans, but then again, most of them were Obama supporters and we see what the polls said about Obama.
Wouldn’t it be refreshing to find a major media outlet that reported the truth instead of perpetrating falsehoods and inaccuracies for the sole purpose of pushing their liberal agendas?
