The light of truth approaches slowly and perhaps surely in this era of Donald Trump.
The only way that the United States is going convince Donald Trump's base that the president himself is to be blamed for the daily, if not hourly criticisms lodged against him, is when members of the loyal royal forces openly admit they see the light.
The only chance that his ardent supporters publically distance themslves from his countless lies, distortions and falsities is when his pretenders begin to own up to their own truths. These are truths of which they might have known all along but have been unwilling to state so. These are truths that are so obvious, they blind the night. They require self-awareness and courage to concede.
Ever so slowly, we’ve seen stunning departures from the “Trump is always Reicht” compulsions and dogmas over these past spring and summer months.
As the Media Research Center (MRC) has identified numerous times in recent studies, the mainstream news media is hopelessly liberal. For example, the MRC has discovered that the broadcast news programs produce content about President Trump that is 90-95% negative.
Even more liberal than the broadcast news programs are the cable news networks such as CNN and MSNBC. These networks use their broadcast platforms to mercilessly criticize the President’s agenda. Thus, it should come as no surprise that this liberal monolith would create an opening for a conservative alternative. It is why Fox News has been so successful since its founding in 1996. It is the reason why Fox News leads in the cable ratings. It is also why so many talk radio shows are popular.
Senator Bob Corker, meet Neil Cavuto. You’re in the same company, both conservatives and obviously concerned whether the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, is fit for office or of sound mind.
