    CBS Anchor: The Press Ruined Its Own Reputation.....

    Trump was correct. People don't trust the media, and now the CBS Anchor says its the Press' fault. Doesn't get any better than that, huh?





    President Trump told the media at his entertaining press conference on Thursday that the American people simply don't trust them anymore. Reporters' first instinct would likely be to get defensive, but CBS anchor and "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson found himself agreeing with the president. In an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday, Dickerson acknowledged that the blame for Americans' lost faith in the media belongs to the Fourth Estate.


    Hewitt noted that Trump is guilty of obvious misstatements, such as his claiming on Friday that he had the biggest electoral college win since President Reagan, which was quickly fact checked. Yet, his assumption that people mistrust the press is 100 percent accurate, Hewitt argued, because "Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country."


    Dickerson agreed.


    "Well, yes," he said. "I mean, yes, itís true, and itís not because of anything obviously Donald Trump did. The press did all that good work ruining its reputation on its own, and we can have a long conversation about what created that. Part of it, though, is what you mentioned about the local weather report, which is to say a lot of hysterical coverage about every little last thing that doesnít warrant it. Having said that, it doesnít mean, and in fact, it most explicitly does not mean that the press just throws out the standards.".....snip~

    The press has no crediblity and no one trusts them, theyve become clown shows.

    The more they relentlessly bash bush the more america realizes what they are.

    Trump has already accomplished more than obama in less than a month. Cant stop this train see Trump is the first and only president that slams the press around, the other presidents either kissed their ass or were scared of them. Trump isnt scared
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    It wont take long for the illiberals to shoot the CBS messenger that says Trump is Right, tho.

    @exotix -- I don't know where you are but you do realize that the vast majority of the people outside of the brilliant centers of elitists just flat-out don't believe the media anymore, right? Call it what you want, call us what you want, but they don't believe the media. I know that makes us irrelevant ones stupid, racist, xenophobic, Muslimphobic, homophobic, or whatever-phobic you want to assign to us, but it's the reality. The more they piled on Trump during the election and called his supporters racist etc., the more the rest of the non-brilliant ones thought to themselves that they had to be lying. The more they covered for Hillary, the more they figured she was evil or Donald was the guy. I get you don't agree with it, but it's true. Drive around Ohio, even the Democrats think the media is making stuff up about Trump. The more the media assaults him and says the sky is falling and they stick their heads out and realize it's not, the more they lose faith in the media and believe Donald. Donald knows this. Pile on, it helps The Donald.

    I've never heard exotix refer to herself as eddie. Are you trying to imply something? Is that implication something that exotix welcomes from you?
