Earlier today I wrote an article about this same subject. Tonight, all three major networks, and of course FOX Noise, are allowing Trump to make a political speech in primetime. This is all about his wall, and his side of the issue. It has nothing to do with immigration reform or border security.
In 2014 President Obama requested a similar event to discuss immigration. He was denied; his purpose was considered “too political.” What the f**k! Why is the television media caving to the worst president in American history? This is a crime against America and the American people. This is one of the many reasons I have refused to watch television “news” since November 9, 2016.
Television “news” is no longer a legitimate member of the fourth estate. When the personalities who sit before the cameras are more interested in entertainment than the facts, this is a crime. Why do they favor the right-wing? Simple. On-air personalities make millions of dollars each year. They are members of Trump’s club which has 540 billionaires and 10.8 million millionaires. America’s newspersons are more interested in money than their country or the people of our once-respected nation. Money is their god and the facts are omitted or distorted. Walther Cronkite was the “most trusted man in America;” he’s been dead for years.
Lastly, let me be perfectly honest. Television has sold out to Republican politicians. This “battle” between Trump and the media is a staged event. He owns the media, and they have become the enemy of the truth and the United States of America. Never forget, he received five-times more coverage during the 2016 campaign than all other candidates together; fact.
