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.

The New York Times’ John Harwood was secretly advising Hillary Clinton. CNN pundit Donna Brazile sent Clinton a debate question.

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.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos worked for the Clintons when their war room attempted to destroy every woman who reported Bill’s predatory behavior. Stephanopoulos is also a Clinton donor.

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.
