The election was about the MSM - not government, issues or candidates

According to the election was about the MSM - not government, issues or candidates. The most important news according to the media is about themselves.

After the midterms, what did the entire MSM "news" media declare MOST mattered by what they most covered? It was not the effect of the election, not issues, not government, and not any candidates. What most mattered was CNN/Jim Acosta versus the president. EVERYTHING that had anything to actually do with the election was a far distant second.

That is the unlimited arrogance of the MSM and why it really is not "news." It is just corporate MSM self promoting in which CNN decided the make the election news about the MSM - and in a way having absolutely nothing about the election as Acosta was asking no questions about the 2018 midterms - but instead specifically the 2016 election.

To the MSM, everything is about the MSM, about promoting themselves. That's all elections are about to them to, about themselves. It no longer just that the MSM creates the news - the MSM itself now IS the news. Nothing else, not even everything else combined, matters as much as themselves.

Clearly Trump gets triggered by the media, and cannot control himself. Maybe he shouldn't have started a war with them... :shrug: There won't always be a little girl available to take the mic from the meanies for him... lol

Yes, that is EXACTLY what the midterm elections were about. The media and Trump. That's what we all voted on because that's all that matters - whether CNN or Trump should run White House press conferences.

The election should be voided because the ballots were all wrong. Rather, the ballot should just have been one question to vote on:

Who should run the government:

1. International corporate media and press outlets
2. Elected officials

That's how CNN and all the rest of the MSM interpreted the election, declaring they won it.

Whatever blows your dress up. The press conference took place during an entirely different news cycle. That is all that was. Even at that what the coverage was really about was Trump making a complete unhinged jerk of himself again. The entire affair, his written comments before he took questions, the questions...all of it was as unhinged as we have seen him. It continued this morning on the WH lawn in the press gaggle. He was completely unhinged again. Just was not a tussle with a reporter. But he was completely unhinged AGAIN.

Hmm...well, I guess I don't see it that way. Happy Friday, joko. :)

Idiotic assertion.
