‘Hatred And Venom’ Dominates MSM ‘Fake News’
‘Hatred And Venom’ Dominates MSM ‘Fake News’ – A Trump Truth They Cannot Argue, Defend Against Or Counter by Susan Duclos
Throughout the 77 minute Trump press conference, which many of us at ANP watched and discussed in the comment sections, during the question and answer phrase, President Trump hit on a truth that the media cannot deny, defend against or counter, in his back and forth with CNN’s Jim Acosta. A truth that has brought about the top trending hashtag on Twitter titled #MediaLiesAgain, which has been going strong all morning long with example after example being shown of outright lies and “Fake News” that users have been tracking.
Trump spoke of the “hatred” and the “venom” that is seen round the clock on networks such as CNN, highlighting Acosta’s show itself, where Trump said the following:
Trump: Here’s the thing. The public is — you know, they read newspapers, they see television, they watch. They don’t know if it’s true or false. Because they are not involved. I’m involved. I’ve been involved with the stuff all my life. But I’m involved. I know when you are telling the truth or when you are not.
I just see many, many untruthful things. And I’ll tell you what else I see. Tone. I see tone. You know the word tone. The tone is such hatred. I’m really not a bad person, by the way. No, but You know, but the tone is such — I do the get good ratings, you have to admit that. But the tone is such hatred.
I watched this morning a couple of the networks, and I have to say, Fox and Friends in the morning, they are very honorable people — not because they are good — because they hit me when I do something wrong, but they have the most honest morning show. That’s all I can say.
It’s the most honest, but the tone, Jim, if you look, the hatred, the — I mean, sometimes —
CNN Reporter: We don’t hate you, sir.
Trump: Well, you look at your show that goes on at 10 in the evening. You just take a look at the show. It’s a constant hit. The panel is almost always exclusive anti-Trump.
The good news is he doesn’t have good ratings, but the panel is almost exclusive anti-Trump, and the hatred and venom from his mouth. And hatred from other people on your network. I’ll say this. I watch it. I see it. I’m amazed by it. And I just think you’d be a lot better off. I honestly do. The public gets it.
You go to rallies, they’re screaming at CNN, they want to throw their placards at CNN. You know, I think you would do much better by being different. But you just Take a look. Take a look at some of your shows in the mornings and evening.
If a guest comes out and says something positive about me, it’s brutal. Now, they’ll take this news conference, I’m actually having a very good time, okay, but they’ll take this news conference — don’t forget, that’s the way I won. I used to give you a news conference every day and made a speech, which was every day. That’s how I won, with news conference and probably speeches. I certainly did not win by people listening to you people. That’s for sure.
But I’m having a good time. Tomorrow, they will say, Donald Trump rants and raves at the press. I’m not ranting and raving. I’m telling you you’re dishonest people, but I’m not ranting and raving. I love this. I’m having a good time doing it, but tomorrow’s headlines are going to be Donald Trump, rants and rants. I’m not ranting.
Full transcript of President Trump’s press conference can be seen at this link, and the entire presser will be embedded at the end of this article for those that missed it, but that one segment, following his checklist of everything that his administration has done in his first three weeks since he was inaugurated, was an absolute home run, because it is demonstrable, can be seen, confirmed and verified. Trump’s “hate and venom” assertion can be proven by simply tuning into Acosta’s show, or just looking at the immediate headlines following the presser.
Trump said “But I’m having a good time. Tomorrow, they will say, Donald Trump rants and raves at the press,” and what were the first headlines out?
LA TIMES: Trump holds a ranting and raving press conference- Mother Jones: Donald Trump Rants and Raves At Press – The Week: Trump rants about ‘out of control’ press dishonesty in first solo presser – Business Insider: Trump lashes out in extended rant at ‘out of control’ media.
Need I go on? Others pulled out their Thesaurus to try to avoid the words “rant” or “rave,” and used words like “railed” or called him unhinged, but the political genius behind Trump’s very deliberate wording was that anybody that heard it, could instantly do a search and prove his point, and once again, the media did it for him.
In the short clip below, at around the 3:30 minute mark, Trump discusses the “tone” of “hatred,” highlighting Acosta’s show specifically, providing yet another chance for anyone that heard it to prove the truth of his words. All one has to do is watch recent Acosta segments, which belies Acosta’s assertion of “we don’t hate you sir.”
Make no mistake, it isn’t just Acosta, and CNN as a whole, but this same “tone” of “hatred and venom” can be seen throughout mainstream media organizations every single day, all one has to do is look at the Washington Post front page on any given day, or the New York Times on any given day, which proves every word Trump uttered there.
