Mainstream Media Admits It May “Never Recover” from 2016 Election

Would America have been better off if the venerable “Old Lady,” had been burned to the ground or shut its doors completely?

Their readership has plummeted as has their advertisers. (Source)

How bad are things really when one considers its the NYT in the link above reporting on its own pending demise.

Here’s a different source. (Source)

Not an excellent business model for a sustainable operation.

H/T: AntiMedia – In a revealing statement that flew largely under the radar earlier this month, members of the mainstream media admitted it would never recover from its irresponsible and negligent coverage of the 2016 presidential election.

hellA recent column published in the New York Post referred to the media’s reporting as “the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.”

In his article for the Post, Fox News contributor Michael Goodwin discussed the media’s pro-Clinton bias – one recognized by supporters of virtually every other presidential candidate, from Bernie Sanders to Jill Stein to Gary Johnson and, of course, Donald Trump.

Even Americans who don’t necessarily have a horse in the 2016 race notice the slant.

“By torching its remaining credibility in service of Clinton,” Goodwin wrote, “the mainstream media’s reputations will likely never recover, nor will the standards. No future producer, editor, reporter or anchor can be expected to meet a test of fairness when that standard has been trashed in such willful and blatant fashion.”

Indeed, he is correct in this regard.
The Clinton machine has effectively infiltrated corporate media.  Of course there is a song for this.

Last year, the Intercept reported MSNBC failed to disclose that multiple pundits who spoke favorably about Clinton were actually employees of a consulting firm hired by her campaign.

More recently, embarrassing Wikileaks  released in July revealed DNC officials attempted to craft narratives painting Sanders in a negative light to undermine his campaign.

They also organized a secret fundraiser with the Washington Post and were careful to keep it under the radar.

There is no question the mainstream media has sided with the political establishment in its decision to craft narratives that paint Clinton as a competent leader who is the only option in the face of a catastrophic Trump presidency.

Indeed, in spite of Clinton’s lack of popularity among the general population, the media continues to suggest she is the only thing standing between America and its descent into fascism.

While the degree of negative press Trump has received is undeniably staggering, Goodwin failed to recognize, at least in this article, that like Clinton, Trump is wildly unpopular and the mainstream media is undoubtedly fervent in their coverage of Trump.

Therein lies the problem: rarely does the mainstream media devote as much time to questioning Hillary Clinton, her rhetoric, and her policies.

From the corporate media’s flagrantly irresponsible coverage of the Iraq War during the Bush years to the media’s ongoing blackouts of relevant news in favor of more superficial, inconsequential stories,

Goodwin’s assertion that 2016 is the year American journalism died is as factual as the content churned out by Fox News.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    The MSM (main stream media) deserves to be put down like a mad dog (rabid dog).

  3. Very good J.C. What is left of any in the media who wish to recover any credibility, have to initiate what they have neglected – up front, substantiated, accurate reporting, in order to show the honesty and clarity that they had abandoned.

    MSM have turned into an absolute perversion of journalism. How people continue on with them, blinders on and tin-foil on their heads, is beyond me! You would have to be a fool (or live under a rock) not to know that what they report is POOP!
