I can’t help wondering why Donald Trump decided to run for president. If his long and agonizing battle with 16 other Republican hopefuls during the primaries wasn’t enough, now he has to deal with a mainstream media still seething over its glaring failure to understand the American public’s distaste for Hillary Clinton and its preference for a consummate outsider.
If you want to see how infuriated the media are, just spend a few hours watching CNN and MSNBC—both of which were deep in the tank for Hillary Clinton, who they anointed as the rightful successor to King Barack Hussein Obama.
Today I watched a panel of six or seven liberal talking heads insult and demean our 45th President repeatedly, while the lone conservative on the panel attempted to present an opposing viewpoint. He was repeatedly shouted down or talked over. The man must be a masochist to appear on such a show.
This is the kind of “fairness” that Donald Trump cited during his Wednesday press conference when he referenced CNN’s decision to report that America’s intelligence chiefs had given Trump and Barack Obama a two-page summary of an intelligence report filled with salacious and unsubstantiated claims about the President-elect’s purported behavior.
CNN and Great Britain’s The Guardian also reported that Senator John McCain had delivered a copy to the FBI director, James Comey, last month, but withheld the documents’ most eye-opening details, citing lack of corroboration.
An hour after CNN’s initial story, BuzzFeed, a left-wing news aggregator, went ahead and published the documents just ten days before Trump’s inauguration, with a warning that the contents contained errors and were “unverified and potentially unverifiable.”
“BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations
