Trump: "we have a very crooked media"?
in United States

By ale5ale5 227 Pts
At national harbor, md - Trump speech CPAC. Trump just said that 
"we have a very crooked media"

I find this comment really disrespectful, as bundling all media in crooked category is just ridiculous.  Just because he doesn't agree with what they are saying doesn't mean they are crooked - too easy to label.

  • He's correct, Fox News is indeed crooked.

  • America may have a crooked media, but that doesn't make anything Trump says any more truthful or insightful. They are all one and the same.
  • CNN and other liberal media companies love Trump - he is feeding them with ratings.  Trump is right about them. To these media companies they only have one goal in mind - do feed preconceived notions of their viewers who love to hate Trump

    A company cannot love or hate something. The people that work in the company can though. Trump is right about what? I am sorry that reporting on what Trump does is bad!

  • Many media outlets are byast against Trump due to them being more democratic media outlets. Some of those are CNN, etc.

    Making a generalized statement like "We have a very crooked media" is as fair as saying "We have very crooked politicians".  Both statements are true enough with enough evidence that it's irrelevant how many media outlets might be completely without guilt of crooked practices just as it's irrelevant how many politicians might be clean of crooked practices.

    Trump is correct.  Reporters these days are nothing more than PR hacks being fed stories by actual PR firms, candidates, bureaucrats, PACs, and other political entities.  Marc Ambiner of the Atlantic at the time, showed how he was willfully manipulated by Hillary Clinton;

  • The media in US is not of ideal quality, to say the least. However, as @LibertineStates has pointed out, that does not mean that Trump is reliable.
