The American people elected somebody who’s tough, who is smart, and who is a fighter. It’s Donald Trump. And I don’t think it’s a surprise to anybody that he fights fire with fire. – Sarah Huckabee Sanders
RasmussenReports.com reported yesterday that
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 29% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 44% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15.
These numbers match those of the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, at the end of his first year of his presidency.
However, there was a huge difference…Obama “got by with a little help from ‘his friends'”.
The Washington Examiner reports that
The media’s coverage of President Trump has been overwhelmingly negative, more than three times more critical than the initial coverage of former President Barack Obama and twice that of former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
The Pew Research Center said that the early coverage of Trump was 62 percent negative. By comparison, Obama’s coverage was just 20 percent negative.
“About six-in-ten stories on Trump’s early days in office had a negative assessment, about three times more than in early coverage for Obama and roughly twice that of Bush and Clinton. Coverage of Trump’s early time in office moved further away from a focus on the policy agenda and more toward character and leadership,” said Pew.
The report about the harsh media coverage was included in Pew’s year-ending report titled “17 Striking Findings From 2017.”
The media story reviewed the tone of coverage of Trump’s first 60 days in office and found that just 5 percent was “positive.”
By comparison, Obama’s coverage was 42 percent positive.
America’s Main Stream Media realized shortly after the American People elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President that in order to have access to President Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he was going to take as President, they were going to have to accurately report what actually happened.
So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.
After these stories were debunked, most Americans accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” were the voices inside their own over-sized heads.
Unfortunately for the MSM, Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority and the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media by the sharing of information through Social Media.
Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.
In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as CNN, MSNBC and The New York Times, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.
That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.
In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself. A fact which has been the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who have spent all of 2017 attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in a Trump Impeachment, clearing the way for some sort of magically gifted “do-over” resulting in a Clinton Presidency.
Marshall McLuhan once wrote that
The Medium is the message.
He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.
Unfortunately for the Main Stream Media, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes, the Democratic Party, and the Clintons, in particular, is well-documented and has led to their being dismissed by average Americans as being known as purveyors of “fake news”.
Equally unfortunate for the Liberal Media, is the fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.
And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.
Americans no longer implicitly trust the Main Stream Media.
By continuing to immerse themselves in soul-searing grief and self-pity over the fact of the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, they continue to distance themselves from the majority of American Thought.
Their Fake News Stories and the rest of their behind-the-scenes maneuvering and other Political Machinations have produced nothing but epic failure, as shown by yesterday’s Rasmussen Reports Presidential Popularity Poll.
Donald J. Trump is still the President of the United States of America.
And, unlike his predecessor, Petulant President Pantywaist, it is not BECAUSE of the Main Stream Media…but IN SPITE of them.
Until He Comes,
