This morning we posted a poll asking if you like the way in which President Trump goes to battle with the media. Although it’s only a few hours old, it looks as if it will be one of the tightest polls we’ve run in a long time. Currently, the results show 56% to 44% in favor of Trump’s approach of going on the attack, using terms like “fake news.”
Although I support the president’s desire to make America great again, and I am a firm believer in tough love, I don’t like his approach in using terms like “fake news” and going to war with the press. I think it adds fuel to the fire.
Perhaps my take on things stems from working in a newsroom and anchoring a news program in the past. I know how the media works; by and large, it works on ego. Trump thinks he’s bigger than the media. The media believes it’s bigger than Trump. Therefore, every time Trump hits them — they hit him back. It’s never ending.
Maybe I’ll be proven wrong in the long run. Maybe Trump’s hard-hitting approach will make the media honest again. Either way, here is the message the president wants you to see today:
“Give the public a break – The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!”
