First, let me state that Cats Working is biased against Donald Trump. We want him shredded bigly on Election Day. (Or is that big league?) He’s a menace to humanity and he must be stopped.
But I’m not the media. I’m a cat.
With that said, a new AP poll revealed 56% of likely voters think media reporting is biased against Trump.
I think those voters are wrong.
Any perceived bias (i.e., negativity) toward Trump is created by Trump himself. The media can barely keep up with the torrent of lies and insults that spew from Trump and his surrogates. In fact, some vile nonsense has gotten short shrift because it was so quickly followed up by something even worse.
If that seems like biased reporting, then Trump could flip the election’s tone 180 if he’d stop calling everyone “horrible,” a “disgrace,” or a “disaster.”
And if by bias people think Hillary’s not getting her share of nasty reporting, it’s because Hillary doesn’t play victim and lash out with insults every waking moment. Sure, she’s had scandals, and they’ve been dissected ad nauseam. The press shouldn’t mine the archives just to publish equal dirt.
Trump and his crowd are the ones talking and tweeting crazy stuff faster than anyone can absorb it.
Through the primaries and the Republication convention, the media gave Trump a pass, reporting on him as if he were a mature, rational adult who said unusual things. It’s only in the past few months that most journalists have acknowledged that Trump is an evil, bat-shit, raving lunatic.
He probably doesn’t even want to be president. This whole nightmare has been him seeing how many suckers loyal supporters he can put the squeeze on to enrich the Trump family and its businesses. He hasn’t — and won’t — give the $100 million he promised to his campaign.
In fact, Karen has received two letters from Trump, begging us for money! How pathetic is that?
Only since the debates has the media focused on accompanying Trump’s bizarro claims with disclaimers when he provides no proof or evidence, which is always. Before that, he went unchallenged.
Calling out this demented, sleazy geezer on his fact-free rants isn’t bias, it’s journalists finally doing their jobs, and it’s about time.
All signs indicate that Trump’s going down in hot orange flames November 8. I hope Sarah Palin’s preparing to hand off the crown as the most shameless, money-grubbing loser in American political history. She’s about to get Trumped.
