Trump Is Correct About The Media

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 30-01-2017


The media has us Americans in it’s hand. What we know about the world is for the most part determined by the media. Right of wrong, it’s how we know what is going on in the world and if it is tainted by the right or left, so be it and it ends up on local and national news. And we believe it…..The other day I learned that the Mexico”s southern border is protected by fences and 50 caliber machine guns in lookout towers by an item on Facebook. Ok, so maybe that is not a good place of news, however, daily I read some news on Facebook. This morning I learned in a article in the Albuquerque Journal that I, as a resident of Albuquerque, was against the immigrant ban of Mr. Trump’s, and against the wall. The Albuquerque Journal went on to say that about 1000 people protested at the Albuquerque airport yesterday and that was how they made that determination about me as a citizen of this fair city of five or six hundred thousand folks. That’s a better news source than Facebook, right? Well, I don’t know if that is true or not……Pretty good, huh? So, is Mr. Trump correct? I would think that the two cases reported above is some validation to his theory…..I suppose it could be said that hesterbooks.com is a form of media as I am visited by 150 to 200 folks every day. Do they believe everything they read here? Probably not. I report on the other tainted news sources and then add a bit of my heart and head to it, but to call it news would be a stretch. However, you and me both have to do that with the other media sources and Mr. Trump has figured that all out. His election to POTUS proves that. ….I wonder if the media will ever figure it out?  …..You reckon?

The news reported on Hesterbooks.com is pretty much the same type of news as that reported on the major news outlets, electronic as well as print. People are not interested in strictly news happenings any more. They are interested in lip flapping that will support their own personal bias. Modern people are so much better educated and informed, at least they think so, in the 21st century than the Greatest Generation was in the 20th century that they don’t feel that their personal bias is slanted at all; but, instead, it is the gospel truth; whereas, all opposing ideas are absolutely evil. This is the reason that compromise was once possible in the Halls of Congress and at the highest levels of government. Now, presidents, like Barack Obama, will not even talk to the leaders of Congress, much less negotiate with them, as Barack Obama proved time and time again. He merely stated his conditions and told them to come back when they were ready to come to terms with them. Only conservatives are willing to negotiate; but when it comes to negotiating with the liberal position, liberals tend to move so far to the radical left that negotiation becomes impossible there too.

Can I simply say what a comfort to discover someone who truly knows what they are talking about on the net. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

Wow, you have a good eye for smarts. Thanks and pardon me as I look for a bigger hat size.
