Media:negative coverage of President Trump in order to erode his popularity among Rep

Liberal New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman said the news media should work together and saturate the public with negative coverage of President Trump in order to erode his popularity among Republican voters.

Friedman said in an op-ed published Wednesday afternoon that if the media emphasize Trump’s personality instead of news about the strong economy, it may discourage enough GOP voters from continuing to support the president and benefit Democrats.

“Some healthy soul searching is taking place in newsrooms across the country these days over whether the mainstream media should be covering President Trump’s every tweet and rally,” Friedman wrote. “My answer: Absolutely! It’s the right thing for us to do professionally, and, as last night’s election results indicated, it’s the right thing to do politically if you want to see a check on Donald Trump’s power.”

And people wonder why media is not trusted.

Look around, you can find opinions posted about all kinds of shit.

Trumptards are acting like this is some directive by the heads of major news networks.
It's called hyperbole, the Trumptards favorite game.

I'm responding this particular person's Op-Ed mentioned in the OP. The article states that he is a columnist so it's fair to lump him in with 'the media.'

There are two distinctly different concepts expressed in the OP.


1) factually report on the apparent personality (for lack of a better term) of a powerful elected official in order to invite examination of that elected official


2) focus on style over substance in order to weaken the standing of an elected official within his own base


The first one is perfectly acceptable. The second one is not journalism.

I don't really care what's in the OP except this person's actual words.

I mean... that's their opinion.

I'm not sold on the strategy, but it's working. People are watching more and more CNN and fox news on alternate media on top of their networks. Trump is a gold mine for them.

If you eliminate the profit incentive, I really doubt everyone on these partisan networks would feel quite so strongly about him. It's just rationalizing something they're going to do anyway for a profit reason.

Judge the man on results, not on what kind of person he is (which is mostly what side of the aisle you're on subjective anyways).
Like I said before, some people in this country think character matters when it comes to our elected officials. Especially the ****in president.

Sorry, if you voted for Hillary or supported Obama you have no right to play the moral high ground card here (and I say that as a guy that supported Obama his first few years in office).

Yep, one of our Presidents first moves was to untie the hands of the Military and let them do their job.

Never voted for or supported Obama. The one and only reason my vote went for Clinton was to try and prevent the current shit stain on the presidency from getting elected.

Edit: I'd like to add anyone supporting the habitual liar currently in office has no right to play the moral high ground either.

You voted for Clinton. You're in no position to add anything, about anything.
