The relationship between Donald Trump and the media has been tenuous to say the least.

For over a year, the mainstream media constantly told the American people that Trump had no chance of winning the election and they even suggested he would drop out before the election.

Obviously, that’s not how things turned out and the media lost a lot of credibility as a result.

Here is what CBS’s John Dickerson had to say about the media’s credibility.

From Washington Examiner:

John Dickerson, anchor of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” disagrees with reporters who say President Trump is eroding the national media’s credibility.

“But that one comment, they don’t trust you anymore, is a summation of where we are in America, because I really do think Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country,” Hewitt said. “They’ve lost it.”

Dickerson agreed.

“Yes, it’s true, and it’s not because of anything obviously Donald Trump did. The press did all that good work ruining its reputation on its own, and we can have a long conversation about what created that,” Dickerson said.

“Part of it, though, is what you mentioned about the local weather report, which is to say a lot of hysterical coverage about every little last thing that doesn’t warrant it,” he added.

Here’s the video of the exchange.

Nice to see a member of the mainstream media finally admit the truth.

  1. For a democracy to work the average person has to be informed. That means the press has to be guardians of the truth and they have failed us. It is clear they can be bought and that means our democracy is now no better than Mexico’s. Trump is an aberration a rich man who wants to be president. If I had his money I would rather spend my time playing with my grand kids than buying this headache.

  2. Knock it off, this is taught at the third grade level, and you sound like that ten year old in class always correcting the teacher. I define democracy as people’s rule by vote. Yes we have a representative form of government because at the time the constitution was written everything moved at the speed of horse. To count a direct vote on anything would have taken years so the compromise. If you are going to repeat what you have been told understand it first.

    • Oh, I sound like the 10-year old intelligent boy who knows his onions, huh? I’m so glad.
      Now, maybe it will sink in to some of those who don’t get it right.

      I even defined my reply above to be understood by certain intellectually challenged individuals who like to mouth off at accurate statements. It never fails to get a rise out of them. Guess what…Looks like it’s still working.
