American journalism is collapsing before our eyes
By Michael Goodwin August 21, 2016 | 5:40am

Donald Trump may or may not fix his campaign, and Hillary Clinton may or may not become the first female president. But something else happening before our eyes is almost as important: the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.

The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House. They are working hand in hand with what was considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.

The shameful display of naked partisanship by the elite media is unlike anything seen in modern America.

The largest broadcast networks — CBS, NBC and ABC — and major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post have jettisoned all pretense of fair play. Their fierce determination to keep Trump out of the Oval Office has no precedent.

The 'News Media' In This Country Is Completely Controlled By A Handful Of Globalist, Zionist, Left Wing Communists And Their Agents - They Decide What The 'Truth' Is - Six Corporations…Some Say Five…Own 95% Of The MSM Thanks To The Clinton De-Regulation Of Media Ownership Restrictions In America. Here Are Just A FEW Of The Key Agents And Their Connections You Didn't Know About...

ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

Before you believe the stuff you read in the newspapers or see on TV -- all these

at stake should they lose their crooked "providers" in government.

If there was ever any doubt how unhinged the Mainstream Media has become in its desire to damage Donald Trump via one false news story after the other, this list makes that desire all too clear.

There has never been a time in the modern-era of American politics where the media has been so exposed and proven so corrupted by ideological bent. Fake News does in fact exist. It’s called the Mainstream Media
.


Remember, this is merely a partial list of the false reporting that has taken place just two weeks into the Trump administration:

**NBC claims Trump is easing sanctions on Russia. Story is disseminated thousands of times. When Trump White House provides proof that agreement was actually initiated by the Obama administration, NBC released a hardly-seen retraction while other news agencies continue to promote the false story.

**The New York Times had a front-page story with a headline blaring how Homeland Security officials were “blindsided” by the Trump Executive Order that put a 90-day pause on immigration from seven designated nations known to harbor and promote terrorism. When Homeland Security officials call out the story as patently false, the media largely ignores that information.




**NBC, once again jumping the gun, runs with its own “security chaos” story linked to what the NYT had started on the same subject. NBC claims the Trump Department of Justice “had no input” on the immigration pause/ban executive order. The Trump White House then submits a memo proving notification had been given to the DOJ, who then APPROVED the immigration action days prior to the executive order being signed by President Trump.

The NBC story continues to be pushed, yet again, by other media outlets. As for the correct version? Almost completely ignored.

**Steve Clemons of The Atlantic tweets that the Trump White House forced the resignation of several Secret Service officials. This tweet is then re-tweeted thousands of times and reported on as fact by various news agencies. The Secret Service then calls out the story as “completely false” and indicates Mr. Clemons never actually contacted anyone from within the agency prior to making his claim.

**The Associated Press and CNN falsely claim Trump threatened to send U.S. troops into Mexico. The report was based on a phone call Trump had with Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto in which he noted how the Mexican military was having a difficult time dealing with the “bad hombres” in that country and that the U.S. military would be willing to possibly help. The Trump White House claimed the AP and CNN reports were untrue, and that the comment was lighthearted. Both news agencies did little follow-up to try and remedy the initial false reports.

AFTER LIKENING TRUMP TO HITLER, JOURNALISTS UPSET THEY'RE NOT GETTING CALLED ON FOR QUESTIONS
'The President of the United States is shutting down the part of the First Amendment'
Feb 15, 2017  


Members of the mainstream media were left fuming this afternoon after President Trump refused to call on any of their organizations for the third straight press conference.
Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery.

After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have.

“What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President Trump, again, called on a series of more conservative leaning news organizations which didn’t allow for any real questions, trying to zero in on this issue of Mike Flynn, the now former national security advisor."

We can't speak for Trump, but one reason he may not be in a rush to give MSNBC more airtime is that they seem intent on using it to liken him to Adolf Hitler.
On Trump's Inauguration Day, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow likened Trump's election to "Hitler's rise." Her colleague Chris Matthews described Trump's inaugural address as "Hitlerian." Matthews also mocked Trump's family, likening them to the Russian imperial family, the Romanovs. He's so fond of this metaphor he now uses it all the time.

CNN reporters were likewise angry at not being called on during today's Trump presser.

"In the last three news conferences, Wolf, all of the questions to the American news media have been handled by conservative press, and I think, Wolf, there’s no other way to describe it but the fix is in," CNN's Jim Acosta vented during a post-press conference interview with Wolf Blitzer. "This White House, this president does not want to answer questions, critical questions, about his associates, his aides’ contacts with the Russians during the course of that campaign just as his national security advisor is being run out of this White House on a rail."

CNN's John King echoed his colleague, complaining that conservative journalists are not asking Trump “tough questions."
“Well, it would be nice — it would be nice if the conservative outlets the president is calling on would ask him tough questions," King lamented. "And instead of actually trying to curry favor with this president, they might do him a favor by letting him answer these questions because until he answers these questions this story is not going to go away."
Why might Trump be ignoring CNN?
Trump himself explained his frustration in an earlier press conference, when he noted that CNN ran a report about a rumor -- since discredited -- that he had used the services of a prostitute during a trip to Moscow. Trump even complimented The New York Times for passing on the story. CNN has since stuck by its decision to publish the uncorroborated report.  

ABC's Matthew Dowd went so far as to claim today that Trump is "shutting down" the First Amendment by not calling on liberal media outlets during these press conferences.
“Well, I was struck by — when you look at this, this is two democracies, two important democracies in the world and basically the President of the United States is shutting down the part of the First Amendment by not taking questions that are going to be any way antagonistic in this," Dowd said.

What might Trump have against ABC? Well, Dowd himself has accused Trump of pushing legislation that plays to the racial “fears” of his base. On ABC's political show, "The View," hosts have likened Trump to the Taliban, claimed his administration wants to bring back slavery, and said his approach to the media mirrors a dictatorship.

So who did Trump call on today? The Christian Broadcast Network and Townhall.com. Both of these news organizations have run plenty of negative Trump stories. Townhall's two most well known pundits -- Katie Pavlich and Guy Benson -- were both outwardly opposed to Trump during the Republican primary.

One thing they haven't done? Publish anti-Trump fake news and/or compare him to history's most infamous mass murderers.
