All they have at the gym is CNN, and I don't watch the news at home, so I'm getting a very one sided version of what is going on. 

 

I think though that they do in fact attack, and nitpick, and it seems to never end! But perhaps there is a reason why. I don't think they want him in office, because he's bad for America. Therefore, they don't want us to forget, and I think there is a danger that we would forget and just let him be in the White House and in the Oval Office and all that... they don't want us to forget that he really shouldn't be there. So every opportunity they have, every tweet, every misspoken word, they tell us that "he's done it again!", like a child tattling on a rowdy playmate. :) 

 

So I think their heart is in the right place. I do think they're trying to get him out of office for the sake of the American government. I don't think they're utter greed mongers. Could there be another reason why CNN is harping on President Trump? Please tell me I'd welcome your thoughts on it.

The media both perpetuate & attack extremes...why? Because it sells!!!!!!!

 

The media very rarely report anything in an even-handed fashion.

The media looks for conflict as it does sell.

They aren't always even handed because the Republicans and Ronnie Reagan destroyed the FCC's Fairness Doctrine in 1987.

They are also fighting back from the relentless attacks by Trump himself.

 

The more he demonizes them, the more they're going to look for anything he does wrong.

Why should they treat him with kid gloves when he proclaims they hate America?

NPR openly dedicated their news to political activism (anti-Republican) prior to the election . It began with an on-air announcement from administrators referring precisely to initiating real political activism . Although that organization is not govt funded , their member stations do receive 8-15% of their funding from the Corporation For Public Broadcasting . The next Republican budget promises massive cuts to non-essential programs .

 

The conservative talk-show host Mark Levin is about the only one who ever bothers to even mention NPR , oh , insultingly  ... and as National Pubic Radio .

I can't find anything about NPR dedicating a newscast to anti Republicanism.

being in the most public position there is possible to be on the planet, the media is simply doing its job, granted with a vigor that seems a day late, of trying to let everyone know what he, or anyone in his position is up to.

the idea that it is individually and personally "attacking" him, is his own narcesstic fantasy.

 

if anything, thanks to the economic interests that own corporate media, it softballed him when it should have been paying more attention.

if anyone's attacking anyone, its his attacks on media, and if he had the skin he tries to pretend to have, he'd know this, and stop whining about it.

MeAgain , the NPR administrative announcement was an open call to all stations to engage in Political Activism . Iowa Public Radio (for one) took it very seriously and its dedication became apparent . Even their Senator Grassley was targeted and abused in an interview for refusing to denounce Trump . Subsequent to that he cancelled participation in an Iowa Public Television debate broadcast . The famous U.S. public broadcaster's Non-Biased Journalism ? We assume it will recover .

Does the media attack Trump because it hates him, or because it emboldens the side which is in support of him, while also doing the same for the opposite side, therefore feeding into the divide and conquer mentality the system wants as the country nears the brink of a sort of new civil war?

 

Imo, Trump reminds me of tycoons who regards the rest of the masses as roaches and don't mind stepping on them at times, to make a point that he can get away with it. 

 

The intellectuals and media understands this flawed character trait of his, that he lacks the character and social etiquette for being a leader, and is hence training its guns on him relentlessly so that any new trend he might create in American politics can be aborted or nipped in the bud itself.

That's right. The Republicans ended The Fairness Doctrine. We used to be able to claim equality time on radio stations that spewed non-stop bashing of democrats, during the days of the Clear Channel Blow Torch network. All that ended and the pro-Republican am radio stations began to refuse fair time to caller like me who only wanted to set the record straight. In Colorado all the FROX news radio stations and the little Johnstown station badmouth Muslims all day long and support Trump unconditionally, while refusing access to their public owned airwaves.
