In a Wednesday night tweet, President Donald J. Trump shared an article from Breitbart News.
“Nolte: Poll Shows Media Failed to Gaslight Public About Trump Campaign Spying,” Trump tweeted, repeating the title of the article.
In the report, John Nolte writes, “Despite the media’s best effort to gaslight the public into believing otherwise, a plurality of voters accurately believe Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign was spied on.
“The poll from the far-left Politico and Morning Consult shows that nearly four in ten voters (38 percent) said they believe spying occurred, while only 28 percent said there was no spying.”
“After more than a week of the media unifying in a relentless pushback to gaslight the American people on this subject,” Nolte continued “only 28 percent are buying it.”
Nolte says the inability to influence public opinion may be “the greatest media fail in the history of media fails,” and that media outlets have “lost almost all of their ability” to sway people.
