10/25/16- Media Distrust
Media. The public doesn’t trust us.
Here’s what’s happening behind the headlines.
Most people believe the media have chosen sides. And they’re right.
Too many news organizations and journalists have violated the public trust. The flurry of leaked emails confirm what most people suspect.
Politico’s Glenn Thrush sent an article to the Clinton campaign to edit before publication. He even admitted he was a hack for doing so. Another Politico reporter was recently caught doing the same thing. And a third promised only positive coverage.
The Washington Post assigned an army of 20 reporters to go after Donald Trump. And that’s okay. Be thorough. But the Post has no such team scrutinizing on Clinton.
A CNN reporter tweeted a comment supportive of Clinton at a Clinton staffer’s request.
Journalists have given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hillary.
Sadly, the list goes on.
It’s embarrassing so many journalists lack integrity, honesty and ethics.
