Ted Koppel is one of the few old school newsman in the United States. It might seem hard to believe but, back in the day, the media wasn’t chock full of biased snot-weasels who do nothing but lie for a living.
So when it comes to admitting that the mainstream media is out to get President Donald Trump, Ted Koppel has zero craps to give.
“I’m terribly concerned that when you talk about the New York Times these days, when you talk about the Washington Post these days, we’re not talking about the New York Times of 50 years ago. We are not talking about the Washington Post of 50 years ago. We’re talking about organizations that I believe have, in fact, decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States.” said Koppel.
“We have things appearing on the front page of the New York Times right now that never would have appeared 50 years ago. Analysis, commentary on the front page.” he continued.
It’s not hard to comprehend what Ted Koppel is talking about. Left-winged media are taking a stand against the president. They’re not a ref sitting on the sidelines, they’ve got the ball and they’re running with it.
It’s silly to pretend that the mainstream media is this bastion of impartiality. They are not ashamed to lie about many of the president’s actions.
Some media outlets even fact-check President Trump when he metaphorically claims the pile of Big Macs at the White House is a mile high.
Mainstream media is clearly an active participant in our political realm. It’s obvious that Ted Koppel isn’t a MAGA person, though he is at least got enough sense to admit the truth.
When members of the media cover President Trump with a clear angle in mind, they’re proving themselves to be sucktastic at their jobs. So Sad.
