A recent article in the LA Times by Justin Raimondo stated, “The mainstream media has openly dispensed with the pretense of objectivity during this election cycle in an attempt to sink Trump’s campaign.”
If one needs any more evidence that the supposed “mainstream media” is super biased in favor of a Hillary victory, here it is for all to see. We have also seen ABC, Reuters and CNN actually cut “live” television feeds where either Trump was being praised in a black church, or where Trump was talking about Clinton’s connection to ISIS or where CNN reporter Brianna Keiler, who stated that Hilary’s support for the anti-crime legislation bill in the 1990s contributed to the “mass incarceration” of black people, had her video suddenly and immediately cut.
So, now we have a precedent being set that is ripe for a one-sided brawl against Trump in the upcoming debates. Lester Holt, the first debate moderator, is an ABC anchor and is a liberal Democrat (Editor's Note: According to Donald Trump, Mr. Holt is a Democrat. According to Time magazine, New York state voter registration records show he has been a registered Republican since 2003). I do know that in the “Commander-In-Chief” debate with Matt Lauer, his liberal peers skewed him for being too hard on Hillary and not enough so on Trump. So, I expect the media to be placing huge pressure on both he and the other moderators to go for the destruction of Trump.
In the second debate, the moderators are Martha Radditz of NBC and Anderson Cooper of ABC, both, in my opinion, well-known and partisan liberal supporters of Hillary. Martha Radditz even had President Obama at her wedding. (Editor: Donald Trump had Hillary Clinton at his third wedding). Now, this may mean nothing at all, but I fear a liberal political tsunami is about to begin with an all-out effort to destroy Donald Trump at every turn, with every question and follow-up asked and when convenient opportunities arise in these debates. Remember, there is now no objectivity to being fair, balanced or respectful when it comes to destroying Trump and giving Hillary a pass by the mainstream media.
It is sad really knowing that the media has once again failed to do its patriotic duty, keeping government, and the reckless imperial rulers like Obama in check and to hold them accountable for their polices, actions and hateful words, which have most definitely divided us this last eight years along racial grounds.
I see so many editorials spewing disgust, hatred and other nonsense about Trump and what he has supposedly said and tweeted, and about his policies to combat all the wrongs perpetuated by both the Obama/Clinton administration, yet these same lemmings, those who follow an ideology regardless of the impending tragic consequences, say nothing about the national security violations, poor judgment, inept policy stances, law- and rule-breaking and allowing our enemies easy access to beyond top secret information, in my estimation, by the esteemed and smartest woman in the world, Hillary Clinton.
Plus, when you look at her apparent health questions and her inability to “remember” conversations, actions or meetings when interviewed by the FBI over her email scandal, one cannot but believe in horror that the fix is truly in for her to become our next president by a media who has failed this country in every way.
