Mass Hysteria Grips The Mainstream Media And Brings Some Unexpected Results – Americans Angry And Tuning Out Daily Manufactured Outrage By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
– To Media: When You Find Yourself In A Hole, Stop Digging.
The media is outraged… OUTRAGED I tell you!
If you just sighed loudly, shrugged and thought “what else is new,” then you are the type of person that the New York Times just discovered, or to rephrase, a writer for NYT discovered.
In a piece which was originally headlined (as archive.is shows) “Numb to Outrage, Republican Voters Feel a Deepening Bond to Trump,” the writer, Jeremy W. Peters, conducted a series of interviews across the country with Trump voters, pollsters and strategists, which led him to a discovery………with each new “outrage” over President Trump doing this or that, or tweeting something, or making a statement, Republican voters “no longer had the patience or interest to listen to what they see as another hysterical outburst by Democrats, Republican ‘Never Trumpers’ and the media.”
In regards to the latest topic the media outrage machine has been spinning madly, the illegal immigration and border chaos, the writer offers and example of how the media hype is seen by those outside the media bubble:
“I think it’s terrible about the kids getting split up from their parents. But the parents shouldn’t have been here,” said Lynn Dittbenner, 65, of Elk River, Minn., who took the day off from relaxing with her family at their lake cabin to hear the president speak at a rally in Duluth on Wednesday.
Others said they saw a ploy by the president’s enemies to obscure news that was more favorable to him, like the internal Justice Department investigation that recently uncovered evidence of F.B.I. officials speaking disparagingly of Mr. Trump.
“It’s just incredible what the nation is trying to do to disrupt this president and his agenda,” said Jeff Butts, 58, an unemployed sales manager from Leesburg. “We don’t get to hear about that. We only get to hear about the crying babies on the border.”
According to Rasmussen the majority of American voters, not just the Republicans, also “blame the parents” for bringing alien minors into the U.S. illegally.
Via Rasmussen: “When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law.”
The latest outrage has played itself out much like all the manufactured outrage controversies since the day the President announced his candidacy.
The Media screams, non-stop, in one voice: The Children! In concentration camps! He is a nazi!
The Media amplifies Trump’s response: Come legally, we will prosecute those that come illegally.
The Media screams again: He is heartless!
Americans agree with President Trump: Come legally.
The Media: You are ALL Deplorables!
As is noted by Mr. Peters, the constant bombardment of outrage has pushed even more Republican voters towards supporting President Trump, where the latest Gallup poll shows 90 percent of Republicans approve of the job he is doing.
Peters also notes another factor causing the rising support for President Trump:
Another factor that seems to be driving up support is a sense that no one is acknowledging Mr. Trump’s successes, which they see as manifold, historic and irrefutable.
“Let’s see,” said John Westling, 70, of Princeton, Minn., reciting a list of the president’s accomplishments that he said no one in the media wants to talk about. “Economy booming, check. Unemployment down, check. Border security being addressed, check. Possible end to the Korean War that started when I was 3 years old, 68 years ago, check.”
“I suspect that if Trump walked across Lake Mille Lacs,” Mr. Westling added, “the media would announce, ‘Trump can’t swim!’”
Note: Before moving along, it is noteworthy that someone at the NYT must have taken issue with the writer highlighting the “outrage” fatigue caused by the media’s constant apocalyptic declarations, because the original headline was changed and now reads “As Critics Assail Trump, His Supporters Dig In Deeper.”
MASS HYSTERIA GRIPS THE LIBERAL MEDIA
Last week I read something over at the website Ricochet which highlights the mass hysteria which has gripped the liberal media, by listing all the over-the-top freakouts by the media in just the last 60 days:
