Obvious newspaper reporting bias
#1
Obvious twisting of words by major UK newspaper "The Independent"
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/...42361.html

Thankfully, the comments below the article notice and they aren't buying it.

Independent readers tend to be quite intelligent, and they aren't as brainwashed with political correctness as the majority of Guardian readers.

The media are trying to pretend that what they say is what most people believe, hoping this could become true if people believe it.  Maybe that wimmins march against Donald Trump was bigged up by the media in the same way?  Millions and millions of us women are horrified that they were abusing the democratic right to peaceful protest, claiming to represent women, and that those wimmin think they have a right to use violence.  Try doing that in some other countries.

you See commenters not buying it,

BUT MOST people DO buy what the headlines and articles say and do not think any deeper.


MSM and Socialist/Govt propagandist know this
hence they don't care that a few commenters catch them and call them on it.

I saw a stat recently which said (if I recall the numbers correctly) that half the readers don't beyond the headline.

ALSO, in many articles the headline bears little relationship to the actual contents of the article. It's just click bait.

While everything said about the Left/Liberal/Progressive bias in the MSM is absolutely true
it is also true that Trump and his staff know this to be the case.

And they know how to use this effectively -- and play the media like a fiddle.

An interesting piece in USA Today points this out:


Quote:Trump knows that the press isn’t trusted very much, and that the less it’s trusted, the less it can hurt him. So he’s prodding reporters to do things that will make them less trusted, and they’re constantly taking the bait.


Quote:They’re taking the bait because they think he’s dumb, and impulsive, and lacking self-control — but he’s the one causing them to act in ways that are dumb and impulsive, and demonstrate lack of self-control.

Trump's chief strategist calls the media 'the opposition ...

He's gaslighting them and they fall for it every time.

And there are others who also clearly understand what Trump is doing and why.

How he is the master of a game that they don't even begin to grasp:

It's certainly entertained when viewed from this side of the globe.

Of course the media is all uber liberal here - they're foaming at the mouth over Trump but mostly just copy & paste stuff from similar outlets in the US or Europe. They don't get it and have finished up believing their own party line.

I had SO much fun in the runup to the election and was sad to see the end of it. However my spirits are cheered to find the liberal establishment is doubling down and carrying on with this stuff - so the popcorn stays on and I am loving it!

I think they're digging their grave: Mark my words - in a short while media bosses will be aghast at a slump in ratings liberal and heads will roll. The smart ones will have a 'conversion on the road to Damascus' and quietly change their tune.
