Anyone keeping up with American politics knows the bias that exists in the mainstream media, practically allowing any radical leftist to get away with murder, without being held accountable for their actions.
Hillary Clinton, for example.
This bias became clearer over the course of the 2016 election cycle, and the opening days of the Trump presidency. No matter what the man does, the media finds some way of turning it into a scandal — painting the administration as horrible racists, or sexist monsters.
Those coming to the aid of President Trump, and openly backing him up in the media, are far and few in between. But, it seems he may have a new ally on his side — and it’s brain-melting.
It’s none other than Piers Morgan.
In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, British journalist Piers Morgan came out swinging against the media Monday night, saying that the dysfunctional relationship between President Donald Trump and the American media is dangerous and toxic.
Morgan, a onetime CNN host, discussed the war raging between Trump and the media, saying that when Trump first started campaigning, all the networks rushed to cover him thinking they would be helping Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the long run.
“The moment that Donald Trump first decided to run, he was, for about four or five months, the only gig in town. CNN and all the other networks were racing to give him as much airtime as they could possibly give 嘉盛 him,” Morgan said. “And then when the moment came that they thought, ‘Oh, god, hang on, he might actually win,’ they’re rather like Dr. Frankenstein — they thought, ‘We’ve got to kill him off.’”
Morgan said he noticed the toxic relationship gradually getting worse over the last several months of the campaign, citing the New York Times’ treatment of Trump specifically: “It got more and more virulent. Papers like the New York Times, frankly, I thought were a complete disgrace. They weren’t even pretending to be anything but in the tank for Hillary Clinton.”
He told Carlson that he believes the reaction from the Times over Trump’s treatment of the media is insincere and hypocritical. “It’s pretty rich, I think, given the way that they themselves conducted themselves as the supposed paper of record,” he said.
While adding that he does think there is fault on both sides, Morgan said it is up to the media to start mending the relationship:
I think that it is dangerous and toxic, and I think the media have got to start showing President Trump a bit more respect, and he in turn, and his White House operations, have got to show the media a bit more respect. And they’ve all got to move on.
As if that’s not enough to leave you stunned with mouth agape, Morgan went on to deliver a message to those who are still boo-hooing about Trump’s victory:
“If somebody wins, they win. You have to accept they have won. You have to stop the squealing, the wailing, the teeth gnashing,” Morgan said. He added that the protesting is similar to what he has experienced in Britain after the Brexit vote. “What we’re seeing in Britain, just as we’re seeing in America, is just one of the great hissy fits of modern political times.”
“I am appalled by the behavior of so many liberals right now,” Morgan added. “They bang on about tolerance, about fairness, and yet they’re behaving exactly the same way that they warned us all that Donald Trump’s supporters would behave if and when, as they assumed, he lost.”
It’s a sad commentary on modern society when the person with the most common sense in the room is Piers Morgan, but alas, that’s precisely what we’ve come to.
He couldn’t be more right about the behavior of liberals who have absolutely lost their minds over the election results, and, instead of acting like adults, accepting the outcome, and working to win hearts and minds to their cause, they just cry and destroy stuff.
Like a bunch of toddlers.
That accomplishes nothing and certainly doesn’t produce any sort of unity.
At the end of the day, regardless of politics, we’re all human beings, and as such, we’re in this together — like it or not. We should all be hoping for Trump to be successful and to do his best to help bring our nation back into prosperity and peace.
