The media are hives of flesh-eating bacteria

We live in an information age, meaning it's hard to escape what everyone is talking about. That agenda is set by the legacy media. So everyday the media introduce new charges against President Trump, and even the so-called conservative outlets go with it mindlessly.

Here are some notes and comment about this media.

Harvard, that bastion of rightwing thought, has produced a new report.
A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump. 
Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.
They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations.

So who are these people doing this? We turn to that bastion of pro-Trump propaganda, Business Insider.
Journalists' brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking.
What's the frequency, Kenneth?
The results showed that journalists' brains were operating at a lower level than the average population, particularly because of dehydration and the tendency of journalists to self-medicate with alcohol, caffeine, and high-sugar foods.
What do real people think of these drunks? Let;s go that bastion of rightwing puffery, The Huffington Post.
Over half of Americans say that most members of the news media are not honest, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday. Only 39 percent think most media personnel are honest.In fact, 86 percent of Republicans and 6 in 10 independents think the media is dishonest, while nearly two-thirds of Democrats think most members of the news media are honest. young people are more likely to think the media is dishonest than any other group except Republicans. Seventy percent of those age 18-34 think most members of the news media are dishonest.
Would think that real people would be tempted to just turn their TV sets off when the news comes on? You would be right. And there are lots of good reasons to ignore them.
