From Woodstock resident Richard Rostron:
What is the cost of the media’s five-year vendetta against Donald Trump?
Cathy was a rational and reasonable a person as you would ever want to meet.
But when she said the president is just as bad as Hitler, she meant it.
It was inexplicable that she would arrive at such a conclusion except that I knew where she went for her ‘news.’
She was a devoted watcher of NBC news and that’s what they told her to think of the president.
Ready to defend her?
Ready to defend NBC?
Ready to describe Donald Trump as a president who IS just as bad as Hitler?
Hold your horses.
The conversation I mentioned above took place in 2008.
NBC had convinced her that George W. Bush was as bad as Hitler. In light of that description, it’s not so surprising that they’ve demonized Donald Trump for the last four or five years.
It’s not surprising that CBS, ABC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Politico, the Huffington Post, the LA Times and numerous other media sources have spent the last four-plus years doing everything in their power to shred this man’s reputation.
It’s important that we’re reminded that the media didn’t suddenly discover the knives and daggers of media bias when Donald Trump came down the escalator in 2015.
The media worked itself into a fevered pitch over Donald Trump but these were familiar weapons in the hands of Leftist sycophants who have no honor – who scream hysterically about the power and rights of the press while doing all they can to destroy the freedom of speech for anyone who dares to disagree.
What chance would Joe Biden have had if not for the media’s 1,985-day-and-counting barrage of attacks on Donald Trump.
If you consider that those attacks occurred daily, often hourly, across the spectrum of the Left’s lapdog/attack dog media, you could multiply that number of days by four, five, ten – you pick it.
In other words, the number of attacks against Donald Trump reach the tens (and probably hundreds) of thousands.
This kind of persistence creates an aura where the claims against the president are almost part of the atmosphere.
It’s as though you’re breathing the hatred they’ve sought to spread.
If you swept your arm in the air in front of you, you would create a disturbed path of loathing as though you ran your arm through algae in stagnant water.
If none of the accusations of voter fraud were true, and that’s quite a stretch, what chance would Donald Trump have had for a fair election?
Journalists are, no doubt, applauding themselves for torpedoing the Trump re-election campaign.
And they deserve much of the credit.
But celebrating what they done here is like the person who celebrates blowing up a house because they didn’t like the color of the brick walls.
It’s time they consider what they’ve destroyed in the process.
