My sister is just like you. Flatly refuses to watch one second of Fox. She knows it would be at odds with her limited world view and refuses to consider it. Her husband watches it all the time and wants her to watch it with him but she refuses. She is, therefore, missing the attempted coup on the President who was elected in 2016. You probably are, too. Ever heard of Fusion GPS? If not, you may be able to get a job as FBI director.
Are you serious? CNN regularly has Trump bootlickers on their panels. Steve Cortez, Rick Santorum, Mark Urban, Scaramucci....to name just a few that I can think of off the top of my head.

Fusion GPS meme is a bunch of hooey. The only news Trump likes is news which supports his lies. The moral rot in this country is personified in Trump. In case no one has noticed, the bell has tolled on this country. That even a word out of that monster's mouth is believed by anyone says everything.

"Normalize" is an SJW trigger word. Which is ironic because usually it's leftists who are telling us there's no such thing as normal.

The crooked, now discredited and broken CNN is melting down as we speak. Here's another.

Yes the media is deceptive. The like to give more of their opinions, instead of all the facts. Once the media goes back to all the facts and not twisting things (like they are currently doing), they may actually gain some ground again.

The fake outrage has to stop.

Sad to say, I'll be surprised to see even one in my lifetime. I don't see any match for Trump's combo of connection to real people, (somewhat associated) confidence, and raw courage.

Trump has a unique style that makes it work. Try to imagine it from anyone else and you've got crash and burn every time. That's why they don't do it.
Yeah, I can't think of anyone off hand who has the guts of Trump to fight the entire lying media complex and the Establishment Class at the same time.

Trump would give his left tiny hand to get rid of the media for not supporting him and his non-stop stream of lies. Ooooh! FAKE NEWS! Which is code for "news that I find to be distasteful." He wants to have a state press like Kim Jong Un does in N. Korea where Kim is actually venerated as a sort of god. BLECH! Thanks all the same, but I prefer freedom of the press AND freedom of religion.
I heard Faux News references for over a decade or more now....Trump starts saying Fake News and suddenly it's the signs of a dictatorship? lmao.

Obama, Hillary and many others have used the phrase "Faux News".

Trump just hijacked it, he didn't invent it.

9. "I think the press has lost all credibility, much of it. But it's lost a big part of it. I mean, a very substantial part of it, lost all credibility."
So, the media has lost all credibility. Actually just most of the media. But all of the media has lost a big part of its credibility. Actually it's a "substantial" part of the media. But they've lost all credibility, that's for sure. Got it?
Trump directs bile and vitriol at the things he fears. He constantly tries to minimize the influence of the Press because he's afraid of their influence. They're the one component of society that can get him booted out of office, and he knows it. Don't expect this rhetoric to change.

The hammer meets the nail

Approaching everything from a position of fear is very dangerous.
