Media leans left, ignores positive news

Dear Editor,

“Fake News” is not limited to American reporters. Take this example from an interview with flamboyant Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios:

Reporter: You’re friends with American football player Colin Kaepernick. What are your thoughts on his not being signed by an American football team this season?

Nick Kyrgios: “I don’t think I’ve ever spoken a word to him in my life”

(long pause)

Reporter: Well, what are your thoughts about that?

Kyrgios: I mean, I don’t even … (pause) Where does that question COME  from? We’re at the Australian Open, man. Are we done?

This, in a nutshell, is a snapshot of how journalists with an agenda operate. Mark Twain famously said, “If you don’t read the papers, you’re uninformed. If you do, you’re misinformed.” Although the American media has always leaned left, the visceral, unprecedented hatred of our president has led to a dishonest, all-out assault by most newspapers, CNN and MSNBC. The news from these sources cannot be trusted — because it is NOT NEWS. It is opinion disguised as news.

A recent study found that 95 percent of “news” was negative toward President Trump. But, in reality, there is mostly GREAT news for this country:

  1. Under Trump, we have had 84 record highs in the stock market.
  2. ISIS’ dreams of a caliphate have been decimated in 9 months. (Obama said it would take generations).
  3. The GDP has roared at 3-plus percent growth for three straight quarters — with an anticipated 4 percent on the way. (Obama averaged 1.8 percent growth in his 8 years of strangling regulation).
  4. Industrial jobs are coming back to America. Chrysler just announced they are moving production back to the U.S. from Mexico. (Obama mocked Trump’s claims).
  5. The housing market has rebounded.
  6. Unemployment is near an all-time record low.
  7. Unemployment for black Americans has rapidly dropped to 6.8 percent.  Midway though Obama’s reign, it was 16 percent. (So much for the Democrats helping black America).
  8. Polls show Americans are more confident in their future again.

Why isn’t all this great news being reported? Again, it is because the elitist, leftist, dishonest media would rather drop dead in their tracks than give voice to anything that doesn’t fit their agenda. Research the facts for yourself America! Don’t blindly drink the left’s poisonous Kool-aid.
