The liberal media is only this week waking up to the fact that they no longer have any control over the nation's narrative.
In their unceasing hubris, they have yet to shine a light on themselves to investigate how and why they were so far off on this election. That would require journalistic integrity of which they have none.
We now have a President who simply doesn't need them and who could care less about cooperating with them. And who has called them out as the frauds they are.
They have yet to grasp that a large portion of the American public no longer have faith in their reporting. And as a result, they are about to experience what it is like to be sidelined like never before.
What's worse for them is that the Chump knows that their very ratings, their very livelihoods, now depend on him. He also knows that a large portion of the population is questioning their credibility like never before, and not just the right wing nut jobs.
What a position to be in if you are the liberal media. The very person you hate so much is now the hand that is feeding you and there is nothing you can do about it.
Paradigm shift. But I'm not sure what that is at the moment. I do know that there needs to be a more balanced approached to news reporting. A greater effort to appear fair. Less personalities who lash out and come across as sore losers. A greater effort to mask otherwise blatant agendas.
Will this happen? Of course not. The arrogance of the press is far too great. They will never be honest with themselves. There's too much at stake of them. There will always be ratings to chase.
The fact is that the Chump played the liberal media like a fiddle. The ironies are so rich I can't even track them all. But how about this one? The Chump saw to it that the American media paid for the bulk of his Presidential campaign. And this while all the other Republican candidates threw millions down the tubes. God only knows what the criminal spent by comparison.
Always the businessman, The Chump kept his expenses to a minimum while maximizing this very tool to get himself elected. How? By knowing his competitors inside and out and understanding that they, like so many others, are driven by their greed, long before their ideology.
Like him or not, the country may end up owing him for reinventing the American media.
