It’s unnerving, to say the least, when the mainstream media attempts to convince We The People that they are somehow playing fair, or giving President Trump the same coverage that they gave Barack Obama.
This is an enormous reason why so many Americans wholeheartedly believe in the idea of “Trump Derangement Syndrome”; the phony diagnosis that aims to explain why the left side of US politics has turned into a batty, bratty, and downright imbecilic sect of violent heathens. At what point in your life did you think that you’d see a former E! fashion correspondent/stand up comedienne putting in the time and effort to live out a fantasy of murdering and decapitating the President of the United States?
“Deranged” is a nice way to describe that incident.
Much of this hatred aimed at the White House has been exacerbated by the mainstream media, of course, having prompted upwards of 500 attacks on Trump supporters over the course of the last few years. Now, Americans are finally revealing what they feel about the media’s take on the controversial President…and it’s not pretty for the press.
According to a new YouGov survey, 41 percent of Americans think the press treats President Donald Trump unfairly, while only 32 percent thinks the press treats Trump fairly.
The survey asked, “How fairly do you think the national press has treated Donald Trump in general?” The respondents answered with either “very fair,” “more fair than unfair,” “about equal,” “more unfair than fair,” or “very unfair.”
The survey found that 14 percent of respondents said the media treat Trump “very fair” and 18 percent said “more fair than unfair.”
Trump’s populism has brought with it a massive bout of popularity for the 45th President of these United States, and that is something that the press has been willfully ignorant of. This shows in their treatment of Trump, and is then reflected in their ratings as well as in polls such as this one.
And yet they have the audacity to rail against the “fake news” label bestowed upon them.
