Media Meltdown On Inauguration Day Worse Than Their Freak-Out On Election Night
Media Meltdown On Inauguration Day Worse Than Their Freak-Out On Election Night by Susan Duclos
– The MSM Propaganda Versus The Truth Movement Has Kicked Into High Gear
If you, like me, thought the mainstream media spectacle on election night, with pundits crying and lashing out at American voters, couldn’t get any worse…. you and I, were wrong.
By all accounts, had the general public trusted the mainstream media, whether it is newspapers or television news, that consistently provided negative coverage of Donald Trump during the primaries, followed by 91 percent of their coverage being “hostile” to Trump during the general campaign season, Trump would have lost the presidential election and Hillary Clinton would have been inaugurated on January 20, 2017.
BY THE NUMBERS
Gallup polling from June 2016, compared to the numbers in September show that in a three month period, amidst the MSM’s blatant campaign against Trump, while promoting Clinton, trust in the MSM dropped by 9 percentage points.
In a confidence in institutions poll from June 1-5, 2016, only 8 percent of Americans were recorded as having a “great deal” of trust in television news, with 13 percent registering “quite a lot” of trust, and newspapers did even worse, with only 8 percent of the public having a “great deal” of trust and only 12 percent saying “quite a lot.” So between the two, that was 41 percent of the public that still had some trust in the MSM.
By September 2016, Gallup reported that trust in mass media had fallen to new lows, with only 32 percent of Americans saying they had a “great deal/fair amount” of trust and confidence in the mass media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly.”
Days before the election, a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, found that Americans thought the media wanted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to win by an almost 10-to-1 margin, because they weren’t even pretending to be objective anymore with the election just days away and their candidate flailing.
Post-election polling by media watchdogs MRC, broke down the numbers in mid-November:
7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful; 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%); Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton” ; 8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump; 97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.
THE MSM PROPAGANDA VERSUS TRUTH MOVEMENT KICKS INTO HIGH GEAR
The MSM only got worse after the election, encouraging divisions by offering their loyal core audience of liberals that still believed them despite their misleading them with outright “fake news” and skewed polling during the campaign cycle, hope that recounts would change the results, or that electors would become faithless, just to see those false hopes come crashing down around their loyal audiences’ heads, time and time again.
Now before detailing the utterly humiliating spectacle the MSM are making of themselves regarding the inauguration of President Trump on Friday, for those that did not see the compilation, just a quick reminder of the MSM reactions after the election, after they failed to influence the public into voting for the candidate they wanted to win.
With 97 percent of Americans saying they did not allow the media bias to influence their choice of who to vote for, one would think the media would look within, understand where they went wrong, regroup and attempt to establish trust with Americans, but the reactions already being seen to Trump’s inauguration, shows anyone that thought that, were wrong.
We’ll start with CNN since they have really kicked their war against the President into high gear after Trump called them out publicly as being “Fake News.”
They offered a round-up of their CNN analysts’ opinions on the 45th president’s inauguration, starting with Lanhee Chen, who says Trump’s message is “I won’t change.”
