Trump is Right

From Michael Reagan:
President Trump was right when he used Twitter this past week to expose Comcast’s network NBC for its outrageous bias against him. Trump tweeted: “People are just now starting to find out how dishonest and disgusting (FakeNews) @NBCNews is. Viewers beware. May be worse than even @CNN!” Comcast, one the nation’s largest media companies, owns NBC and the Xfinity cable system as well the very liberal MSNBC cable channel.

No media company opposes the president and his agenda more than Comcast. In fact, the media venom I see coming from Comcast against President Trump exceeds even what my dad faced in the 1980s — and that was pretty ugly. Don’t forget that Comcast also owns the TV show “Access Hollywood.” Remember its “leaked” tape of Trump and Billy Bush? Well, it is widely known that Comcast leaked that tape weeks before the election in a clear bid to destroy Trump and elect Hillary Clinton.

I have been in media for almost my entire life. Both my dad and mom, Jane Wyman, were famous actors. Everyone “in the biz” knows the rule: What you say “off air” — even if the microphone or cameras are rolling — is strictly off the record. My guess is that half the reporters in America would have to resign if their “off air” comments were leaked. To make matters worse, Comcast’s MSNBC has a daily drumbeat of stories: Trump should be impeached… Trump is crazy… Trump is a white supremacist. You know the drill. Forgive me, but during the whole Obama administration, I never saw Fox News ever treat him badly to that degree. (Read more.)

There are noteworthy news events occurring throughout the world but the various media outlets choose to obsess over minutiae. Of course that is much easier than working on hard news, but since most of the news readers are just that, readers, they pimp themselves out to the left wing resistance to anything Trump which is lowering their ratings and exhausting the American psyche.
