Republican speakers got one thing right

July 20th, 2016 by Ken

Watching hours of the Republican National Convention on C-Span, a common theme emerges.   No – not Hillary Clinton – – although that is amusing.

What jumps out at me is the attack on the mainstream media.  Speaker after speaker, particularly on Wednesday, jumped on the East Coast media for being biased.   And, they are right.

There’s no doubt, after watching reading and listening to the mainstream media covering Donald Trump – – that they don’t like him – they think he’ll be bad for the country – and he’s an egomaniac with no platform except promoting himself.   Granted – there is some of that.   But Trump has been rebuilding the Republican party and throwing to the curb all of the old Republicans.

The mainstream media (or as some call it the geriatric media) is lost.

Over decades of reading, watching and listening to the mainstream media  – – one thing is clear.   Most of them are liberal and most of them support Democrats.   Many of them try and maintain some semblance of neutrality, but are often unable to keep up the facade.  Others don’t even try to hide their disdain for conservative ideas.

So, as you watch what’s left of the Republican convention – notice the bias.   And, as you watch the Democratic convention next week – – notice the lovefest.
