Re: This is a Test


Trump makes money and increases media ratings. And in the competitive world of info-tainment, ratings are more important than idealogy. Now, Buffalo Bob below says that the media lean heavily to the Democrats' side of issues. If they did indeed lean heavily, then they would call b.s. on all Trump's nonsense. But instead, they give him more air time, more print time than anyone else.
Look at "Saturday Night Live" on NBC. They hired Trump to host the show; and they're probably as liberal as they come, to listen to conservatives complain about NBC. Making Trump the MC of a popular tv variety show concerned the staff of candidate John Kasich who asked for equal time and was turned down. Trump's an entertainer, he knows the old show business axiom that "there is no such thing as bad publicity", and he knows how to make every world news event about himself. And the news media promote him.
They rarely fact check him, unless it's his insistence that thousands and thousands of Muslims in N.J. publicly celebrated on 9-11; and the only reason they fact checked him then, was that rival Chris Christie spoke up and said that no such thing had happened.

Trump is largely a media creation, he knows that their life blood is ratings and advertising dollars, and he plays directly to them. You know, the media is only as "liberal" as the multi-national conglomerates that own them. They give him about 20 times the amount of free air time and print time as anyone else, including Clinton. - B4E
