Trump Trusted More Than Press — This Is Frightening & Here’s Why.

First, here are the polls:

Now consider this: how can the media swallow this horrible truth: THE PEOPLE TRUST GOVERNMENT MORE THAN THE MEDIA. 

That has got to be a pretty big pill for the media to swallow. They should’ve trusted MORE than government. And yet… it ain’t so!

When I lived in China, all my friends there (native Chinese and expats) resoundingly agreed that the media cannot be trusted. Why? Because they knew and know that the media had a political agenda. 

What do these polls then say about the American media?  It makes it clear as glass: the American public also know that the media here also have a political agenda. And that should not be the case in a democratic republic. 

In China? Okay, fine. NOT in the United States of America. 

The media’s respect is declining on a daily basis. 

If they don’t start reporting honestly soon, they are going to lose what little credibility they have remaining.
