The media has long maintained that President Donald Trump is a paranoid narcissist who believes that everyone with a microphone is out to get him. Well, President Trump’s worldview just got some confirmation recently.
The Media Research Center has not only found that 91-percent of the media’s coverage during the twelve weeks before the 2016 election were “hostile” to Mr. Trump, but WikiLeaks also found that at least sixty-five mainstream media reporters coordinated directly with the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Even Harvard University, which is not considered a bastion of pro-conservative opinion, published a report saying that Donald Trump was receiving an inordinate amount of negative coverage.
The chief persecutor of Mr. Trump was CNN. The WikiLeaks releases are very illuminating, because they present the media as it really is — without all of the spin.
The left-leaning publication The Intercept published a list of thirty-eight journalists who voluntarily worked hand-in-glove with the Clinton campaign in order to publish stories that benefited Hillary Clinton.
Some of these journalists include Diane Sawyer of ABC, George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, and Glenn Thrush, now also of the New York Times.
A few of the exposed journalists stand out.
Haberman was described by one member of the Clinton campaign as a “friendly journalist.”
“We have had [sic] a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed. While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for engaging [sic] the beat press that covers HRC, for this we think our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”
Haberman still continues to cover President Trump, and has played a role in released some of the Times’ biggest stories about internal leaks and the investigation headed by Robert Mueller.
As for Thrush, while working for Politico, he routinely sent his articles to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta for verification. One email sent from Thrush to Podesta read:
“Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u. Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this Tell me if I f****d up anything.”
Despite this revelation, Thrush has neither apologized for his poor journalist ethics, nor has this ordeal impacted his career at all.
91-percent of the media’s coverage during the twelve weeks before the 2016 election were “hostile” to Mr. Trump. Is his media coverage inordinately negative?
Thrush now works for the Times, where he and Haberman frequently collaborate on stories about internal divisions within the White House.
All of this information reveals that the American press really is against Donald Trump, and has been for a long time. All patriots should memorize these names, and remember them whenever they report on something involving President Trump — or Republicans in general.
The journalists named in these leaks are DNC operatives who work behind the cover of the major newspapers or television networks. Thrush, Haberman, and the rest are truly “hacks” who see their job as propagating the progressive narrative at all costs, regardless of the outcome.
