Trump & The Media Question 2 of 2: According to my previous poll, 66% of Americans believe that the media is trying to take down Trump. Does having a media that concerns itself with taking down a sitting president do more to harm or help our nation?

And your poll doesn't represent all Americans, obviously. Get a life.

Fox News was great at attacking Obama, but somehow the media is now on a Trump "witch hunt." To the contrary: they give him free press coverage and say: "Hmm...what did he mean by that?"

The sad part is that they don't need to lie or spin to make Trump look bad. They just need to report what he does and says.

Your poll here equates to 66% of Americans? Bullshit!

What must a media person's job be like? Every day to wake up and be more irrelevant than the day before...

The media that I put the most value on does not report with a bias. Again, Trump is an unfit person to be the President. It is not unfair to report on actions and events that have occurred. When a house is on fire, and the family remains inside, no reasonable reporter is going to characterize it as a good or even neutral event.

Glux, I agree that Trump and the media aren't exactly best friends! 😊

However, your poll (as any SOH poll) does NOT show what 66% of Americans think.

It shows what 66% of the people who voted on your poll think. 179 SOH voters do not represent the American people.

I'm aware of that. That's why I prefaced this poll by saying "According to my previous poll". 😉✌🏻️

I guess I'm being nit-picky. It was the phrase "of Americans" that struck me! 😊

It's no biggie, though.

More importantly, I just had another thought ...

We should be more concerned with a sitting President who is actively trying to undermine a free press.

I agree. The press need to keep the fire on Trump's feet.

In this case taking down Trump will help the nation.

A news media that refuses to see both sides of an issue is guilty of malpractice and doing more harm than good.

The MSM's job should be to report the news unbiasedly

The media would be better if it didn't have an agenda and wasn't directed by the left. The media should be reporting the news, not making the news.

Well said! I too wish that the media would simply report the facts without any bias, but those days are long gone.

Most news nowadays is speculation based without facts and based on "anonymous sources"

I'm even more cynical than that. Most "news" nowadays is not news at all. It's propaganda.

As Americans, we should all hope that our president is successful, no matter who it is. If the President falters, the country likely will too. The fact that the media and many on the left are so concerned with taking down our Commander-In-Chief instead of working with him for the common good of the American people proves that they prioritize blind partisanship over what is best for the country.

If Mr Trump didn't give the media so much ammunition, and claim it is the enemy of the people...

Since the media is actively trying to take down the sitting president who was elected by the people of the United States, then perhaps the media are indeed the enemy of the people.

I agree DJ but at the same time you're not holding the media to the same standards. That's called having double standards.
