The press has a big grudge against President Trump. I mean YUUGE (Pun definitely intended). For the next four years, they will try to find anything to impeach him. Just recently they have made their biggest reach yet. Michael Flynn, (Ex.) National Security Advisor to the President, recently resigned. This is due to him misleading Vice President Pence about his conversations with Russia, and therefore President Trump asking him to resign. He told Pence that he did not talk about the sanctions that Obama placed on Russia, but he did. We do not yet know of his motives, but how he was brought down was the media acting illegally. Some government officials recorded the conversations, and relayed them to the press. The press then started to act upon those tapes, and brought Michael Flynn down.

Even if they accomplish their goal of impeaching Trump, then they would have Mike Pence as )President.”

First of all, recording that is highly illegal (the FBI is investigating who recorded the tapes). Whoever did this was either led on by the press, or wanted to bring down the Trump administration through the press. The press is now avoiding that fact, and making accusations that the campaign and administration of Donald Trump has constant ties with Russia. Most of these accusations are very weakly backed, but most people don’t research these people to understand that.

CNN Atricle: Tracking Trump’s Promises

Articles like CNN’s “Tracking Trump’s Promises” hope to make Trump’s followers turn on him through him not fulfilling his promises. I did not see something like this for Obama! Fun fact: every president fails to fulfill all of their promises. The media that dislikes Trump (most) can stop now. Even if they accomplish their goal of impeaching Trump, then they would have Mike Pence as President. People should attempt to work with the President and make the most of his time as President, not hate him and make the next four years miserable.

    How is the news making a “reach” if the accusations are valid? It was illegal to record such a conversation, and I agree that the persecutor should be held accountable, but the means of obtaining the information does not make the information any less true. The reason Obama didn’t receive any heat for something similar is because nothing similar occurred during his presidency. He led an almost perfectly clean two terms, and certainly didn’t conspire with Russia, so why would he have had similar accusations directed towards him by the press? I agree that we should all root for Trump to succeed, as he is everyone’s president. However, the press reporting the truth should not be criticized. He should hope for Trump to do well, yes, but if he or his administration does something wrong such as Flynn did, then it should be reported on. How are the accusations weakly backed? It seems to me that they have concrete proof (a recording is not questionable evidence). What research have you done that says differently? What have you researched that makes these professional news organizations wrong? If you’re going to state that every news organization that reported on this is wrong, at least provide evidence beyond “they didn’t do any research, but I did.”

    There is one main reason that things like this did not explode under Obama because the media liked Obama. It would not make sense for them to demote someone of their party, but it would for someone like Trump, which they hate.

    Hey, Nathan, I agree with you 100%. Just letting you know, though, this is a piece that should have just been in the opinion section. Keep up the great work, though. I like your content.
