In college, I learned that generalizing is a bad thing for reporters
and commentators. It’s ironic that I’m breaking my own training by
generalizing about the craft that I studied all those years ago.
Mainstream media in general is unabashedly opposed to Donald Trump. They
need to be put squarely in their place. Then deserve the “Trump
I thought it was bad during the campaign. That was nothing. The
complete and utter meltdown of respected journalists over Trump’s
inauguration, Sean Spicer’s first press conference, and every little
move the administration has made in the three days since Trump
became President of the United States has placed them even further down
on the trust scale. We’re no longer seeing subtle leanings or hidden
propaganda. Many of the biggest names in journalism are making mockeries
of themselves and the government they’re attempting to cover.
The Trump Treatment is this: disregard their reports, offer an
alternative, and allow Americans to choose which truth to believe. In
any other situation, this would be the type of Kremlinesque attack on
media that I would oppose. Considering how badly the media is botching
their jobs, I see it as unfortunately justified.
