Trump Didn’t Destroy The US Media. Obama Did.

Trump Didn’t Destroy The US Media. Obama Did. By Ben Shapiro.

Trump isn’t destroying the media’s credibility. They already destroyed their own credibility, thanks to their allegiance to President Barack Obama. …

Obama was the first indicator that the media would simply refuse to cover stories they didn’t like about a politician they did. The media covered Clinton’s Chinagate and Travelgate. But they refused to cover the IRS scandal with the same level of vim as they would have under Bush; they downplayed the Obama administration’s involvement in the botched “Fast and Furious” gun operation scandal; and members of the mainstream media openly mocked the Right’s anger over the administration’s manipulation of the 2012 Benghazi terror attack. Obama had to be protected at all costs, including the cost of the media’s credibility.

Meanwhile, the media savaged 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. They dug up a story from his high school days regarding him forcibly cutting a classmate’s hair. They uncovered scandalous material about him strapping a dog to the roof of his car. They delved deep into his nefarious practice of investing in failing companies, and then cutting the dead weight to turn them around. …

And our media, led by the ABC, shamelessly follows the US media’s example of leaning ever harder left.
