If the mainstream media believed that the Trump administration would take office and give them a pass, they now realize that will never happen. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway stressed on Fox News Sunday, that political pundits should be fired and the liberal newspapers should be gutted for dishonest coverage of President Donald Trump and for their political donations to Hillary Clinton. She demanded “Who is cleaning house?” Will America join the rally cry?
The war with the mainstream media has reached a fever pitch and it is not originating from the Trump administration. The mainstream media alphabet soup networks have universally pledged to hold the new administration accountable when for eight years they were little more than the unofficial biased trained attack arm of the Obama administration.
Conway was rightfully angered by the uniformly unprofessional journalistic practices that the liberal television networks have covered the first week of the Trump administration. She emphasized, “I went on three network shows and spoke for 35 minutes on three network Sunday shows. You know what got picked? The fact that I said ‘alternative facts,’ not the fact that I ripped a new one to some of those hosts that they never cover the facts that matter. The 16.1 million women in poverty, the 12.4 million who have no health insurance. Everyone should be outraged,” reported the New York Post.
Who is cleaning the house should be a crucial question that the editors and network and newspaper owners should be asking themselves. For the over sixty million Trump voters the liberal media bias has reduced their networks and publications to sheer irrelevancy.
The former campaign manager of the president criticized the media for their continuous cherry-picking of the news and for condescension and abject purposeful failure to even want to understand Trump’s appeal in heartland America. She reminded viewers, “The fact that I said ‘alternative facts,’ not the fact that I ripped a new one to some of those hosts that they never cover the facts that matter. The 16.1 million women in poverty, the 12.4 million who have no health insurance. Everyone should be outraged.”
Americans are outraged and have shown their disregard and disgust for the negative offensive treatment of candidate and now President Trump by supporting Fox News as well as following the president’s tweets. The networks and the newspaper are losing their audience and their circulation. Conway pointed this out saying, “If the mainstream media were a thriving private sector business that actually turned a profit, which is not true of many newspapers, 20 percent of the people would be gone. They embarrassed, they failed to protect their shareholders and the board members and their colleagues.”
The mainstream media may be continuing their war on President Trump and his administration but Conway and others are not going to be their punching bag. Each Sunday and each daily press briefing the administration is revealing the complete story even if the liberal media pundit and analysts refused to be responsible.
Americans are not stupid and millions of Americans understand that the number of executive orders Trump has signed will create jobs, protect the nation’s borders and re-build a vibrant thriving economy.
Kellyanne says, “Where’s the coverage?” The answer is in social media, and conservative media outlets as well as in the President’s tweets. The days when the weaponized lies of mainstream media were used to demonize and destroy conservative candidates and now a President Trump are over. The nation is awake and ready to stand up and join the war to drain the mainstream media swamp.
