Time for Trump to Force the Media’s Dirty Hand

Friday night, August 20, 2016, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

The motorcade of a presidential candidate was attacked by an angry mob.

Let me say that again, the motorcade of a presidential candidate was attacked by an angry mob.

Trending: Science is Settled

A candidate for the president of the United States, not some third world hell-hole.

Hooded. Masked. Attackers.

They jumped on the hood. They punched the car. They kicked the car.

They screamed obscenities and threats as the cars maneuvered to escape to safety.

THIS should be the lead story on every network. The clips should be shown over and over again.

Every guest from the offending political party should be made to openly, vehemently, denounce these cowards and their actions.

But you won’t see it on the networks.

And no guest is going to have his feet held to the fire to denounce it.

Because the candidate was a Republican.

Saturday afternoon, a quick check of the websites of CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN?

Not a single photo.

Not a single story.

Hate to play the “Flip It Around” game, but imagine if Trump supporters attacked Hillary’s motorcade – you think we might be hearing about it, just a little?

Yes. Every minute, every day. This week, next week, and beyond.

The deceitful media has been getting away with slanting the news for years. It must end, now.

If not now, when?

No candidate has been in a better position to do so. No candidate has ever had the spine to do so.

Trump does. And he holds the aces. Every network wants him on their telecast, for ratings. Every network needs his surrogates for campaign coverage. Right here, right now, Trump is in control, and it is time for him to optimize his advantage and step up his game, and in doing so step on the cockroaches on the state-run networks. On Monday, the Trump campaign should demand that this week, as a prerequisite to his appearance or any of his surrogates, the program must start with a segment on what transpired in Minneapolis on Friday, and film of the attacks, on the motorcade and his supporters at the hotel, must be shown. If not, they cancel all appearances. And the Republican Party, and any spokesperson for it, should support the boycott and do the same.

It’s a win-win.

If the networks acquiesce, the undecided voters get to decide for themselves where the real violence springs from this election season.

If they refuse, even better. The jackals in the media will be forced to explain why Trump and his supporters are no-shows. Sure, they’ll hide the truth, lie, deflect and obfuscate, because that’s how these Little Goebbels roll. But it will still bring attention to the issue.

True, it’s a ballsy move.

But entirely doable because there is finally a Republican candidate with the balls to pull it off.

And it would be righteous.

The media has been getting away with substituting propaganda as news for years.

It must end, now.

If not now, then never.
