    Maybe the media does hate Trump, but can you blame them? He pretty much declared war on them from the start.

This point doesn't get enough consideration. Every other president - even GWB - made a point of playing diplomatically with the media. Get them on your side, play ball with them, play the game. Trump doesn't have a diplomatic bone in his body. He sees diplomacy as a display of weakness. And worse, he is playing the propaganda game that people can only trust his word - not the word of third-party checks/balances like the media.

    Bias or not, what I don't see is "Fake news." Just about every negative reported on Trump is a product of his own making. That said, I do think the media puts him in the spotlight a bit too much.

I haven't seen evidence of the media reporting something that isn't true, but I have seen great exaggeration. I stopped watching CNN because it turned into the Trump Network. From time to time I like to hear some news that doesn't revolve around the world's most famous narcissist.





And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
