    President Trump Vrs the World media !

    i hesitated setting this up as theres the "Anti trump bias in the Irish media" thread but now he's Prez the material has gone Waaaaaay beyond our lot and i thought it was a good idea to set up a catch all thread where we can document the nuttery going on between the Donald and the MSN worldwide whom have collectively lost the plot.

    youtube vids of news broadcast, specials ,radio shows and newspapers coverage and the like. stuff we'd put in other threads but would get lost as they progress on their own subjects.

    today's insanity revolved around a bust of Marting luther King "Being taken down", which didnt happen and when the hack journo was called on it he claimed a door or a secret service lad mustve been in the way.



    plus we had the short lived - but FUN - "no one turned up at the inauguration" story.

    this one got loads more traction but was also shown up to be mischievous (being generous there- mendacious would be better) bollocks too when various videos and importantly the CNN gigapixel pic went up showing what actually happened.

    Gigapixel: The inauguration of Donald Trump



    now the reaction off our own media was priceless .

    newstalk for instance took GREAT umbridge at the "journo's being held to task" story on their sunday show , all earnestly held beliefs im sure and NOTHING at all to do with the boss being a multi million dollar donator to Trumps competition. sadly no shane coleman today but jonothon healy- who in fairness has a tabloid aesthetic that suits the idiocy of the story.

    whole swathes of the show is constant trump bashing though for those that want to tune in for the laugh.

    RTE though has gone quarre.

    Marion is now practically defending trump. in fact in parts of the show she did in relation to NATO and the like. she's been shifting noticeably since he's won and while the panal is still the usual bunch of PC loons its clear now marions smelling the way things are going and seems to be at the vanguard of shifting into the "Arse licking" camp.

    either way heres the link to the show

    As this is Day 3 im sure the coming week will provide plenty of stuff to add here so feel free to do so when ya see some loon - on either side- go off on one .

    IMO weve got 8yrs of it to come.

    Great post, would like to contribute more when I get a chance, got to hit the sack now. The one thing I would say is that if Trump's victory has any positive consequence, it might be the start of our media here and elsewhere getting a healthy rude awakening about their continuous group think, with changes of opinion but a mere a tinkering on the edges of mutual back clapping. That's about it though as I just can't see the Irish commentariat having an epiphany, not at an intellectual level anyway, intellectual in the sense that they cannot see past their own liberal, left of Centre, consensus, and their pejorative way of reporting any politician who is outside that Zeitgeist. A few might though, as you have pointed out, only give the appearance of change, in an expedient, almost sycophantic way, which is another example of, well, cowardice.

    For me, at any rate, only the likes of Tom McGurk, and Ian Doherty, with perhaps Brenda Power too, have any semblance of authentic objectivity, and none of those could be classified as right wing nut jobs.

    Anyway, thanks for starting this thread and good luck with it.

    Probably under instructions from RTE high command, who themselves have been told to curtail the anti-trump hysteria by their bosses in Leinster House.

    Give it a while, they'll be all killing each other over who gets first dibs on licking Trump's dingle berries.

    Well I suppose the media has something real to do now besides spin.

    Every ridiculous lie that this administration peddles has to be highlighted and questioned - and completely ridiculed as appropriate. "Alternative facts" is a Freudian slip phrase that shows how this administration holds democracy in contempt.

    heres CNNs reaction to the donalds speech to the CIA yesterday.



    not happy campers at being called "the most dishonest people on earth" and somehow seem to have missed that the whole thing went down great with the crowd.

    they - all CIA workers - seems to agree with him.

    EDIT.

    wanted to drop this in too .its MSNBCs "morning Joe" s reponse to Trumps win and the bias of the media over the whole campaing and the frankly embarresing headline of the new york times the day of his victory.

    The President's official tweets are now written by a man who regularly promotes fake stories on Twitter
    Dan Scavino has shared articles from websites that claim 9/11 was an 'inside job', Michelle Obama is a man and Beyonce is funded by the CIA.

    The man behind Donald Trump’s official presidential tweets is a former golf caddy who has repeatedly promoted fake news stories and conspiracy theories on social media.

    The official President of the United States (POTUS) Twitter page was updated on Sunday to confirm the messages are being posted by Dan Scavino, Mr Trump’s “assistant” and Director of Social Media.

    Mr Scavino has used his own Twitter page to publish a number of untrue posts, including one of a video he said showed Syrian refugees in Germany holding a rally in support of Isis. The event was actually a protest against a German far-right group.

    He has also repeatedly shared content from conspiracy theory websites and fake news organisations, including InfoWars - a website whose founder, Alex Jones, believes the 9/11 attacks were an “inside job” carried out by the US government, that a number of other terrorist attacks on US soil were also the responsibility of the government, and that Osama in Laden was a CIA asset.

    Mr Jones has also claimed vaccines are part of a “soft kill” and “covert sterilisation” programme intended to murder “massive numbers” of children, that the government is trying to “encourage homosexuality with chemicals so that people don’t have children”, and that Michelle Obama is a man. ...
