For The First Time In 2016 CNN, MSNBC, and Fox Carry Clinton Rally And Ignore Trump

By Jason Easley at PoliticusUSA

For the first time in the 2016 general election, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump held competing rallies and all three cable networks chose to cover Clinton over Trump.

*****



CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News all took Clintonís remarks about the recent police shooting in Tulsa, OK and Charlotte, NC live. The networks had a chance to cover a Trump rally from Toledo, OH, and passed.

It is impossible to call this decision a coincidence after Donald Trump suckered the press to his new hotel in Washington, D.C. with the promise of a press conference, and then refused to take any questions.

Since Donald Trump isnít spending money on ads or building an actual presidential campaign, free media is the lifeblood of his presidential bid. If the press stops covering every Trump rally, the Republican candidate for president is going to have a major problem.

1. Ignore him until he releases his full tax returns

or the parts that experts know are required to see what he's been up to.

The exposure will cost him voters so he thinks he can keep it all quiet.

2. Finally!

Perhaps we will be able to stop all the free media he has been receiving. I hope the MSM has understood how they have been used and manipulated by that last stunt he pulled in an attempt to showcase his hotel. That is why this election is close. If it were not for all that free publicity, this would not even be close. Maybe they are finally willing to put country first over ratings and sensationalism. We can only hope.

3. And maybe a little of this, too!

Equally important is the fact that Hillary Clinton is beginning to be treated like the woman who is on track to be the next president. As the country gets closer to Election Day, the tone is getting more serious, which should benefit Hillary Clinton and deliver more horrible news to Donald Trump.

12. The TV networks are in the tank for Trump.

"I hope the MSM has understood how they have been used and manipulated by that last stunt he pulled in an attempt to showcase his hotel. That is why this election is close. If it were not for all that free publicity, this would not even be close."


The owners of the news networks know all of this, that is why they made it happen. Trump has promised to cut US taxes for big business down to almost nothing. The big networks would love that. That is why they are trying to ruin Hillary's chance of winning the election while giving Trump a free pass on his wrongdoings.

I have talked to several Hillary supporters, and none of them are aware of Trump's illegal bribing of Pam Bondi, or of the accusations of underage sex that he is being sued for, or of his illegally using the Trump Foundation as a slush fund, or of his losing $300,000 in the paint store suit. Why do they not know? Because the TV news will not report it.

I will be surprised if the TV news does not revert to their all-Trump all-the-time coverage within a day or two.

10. He was given all the air time he wanted

and then some, he can never say he was ignored, not given opportunity

And sometimes when someone is questionable, or batshit crazy, depending
on how one looks at it, the best remedy is to give them the soapbox,
let them speak and air their beliefs. It doesn't always work, GWB should
never have seen the light of day, would he have been elected without
the credibility of his famous political name and pedigree? I doubt it.

The Republican Party, and Trump, are painted into the corner for different
reasons, the Republicans for their extreme ideology and obstructionism,
Trump for temperament, personality, extremeism. If Hillary accelerates
to the middle, a little left, a little right jab here or there, she can take
this election big time. This may be the election where polarization is the
biggest loser. The country deserves better.

And don't tell me Bernie Sanders would be up by 75%. He was electable,
with patriotism and sound judgment, but his lack of integration into the
Democratic Party apparatus was going to spook Congressional Democrats
running in moderate districts, and Republican cries of "Socialism!!!" were
an unknown entity, I don't know how we would respond. It's one thing
for the Great Recession younger generation, it's something else to
Baby Boomers and retirees.

13. IGNORE HIM

Like they ignored Bernie for a year and a half and see how far he gets. If Hilary or Bernie had gotten the time tRump got, he'd be nowhere now.

14. They know what jumping the shark means.

Wonder what he's going to do next to try to gain ratings? Because this isn't government, it's television to him.

15. He'll have to go to even more extremes.

And that will be bad for him.

I can't wait.

21. That one was the biggest surprise.

Maybe they too have decided he needs to start buying a few more ads on their network instead of getting them all for free.

Also, could be his rally ratings are dropping, since trump has worn out the same rhetoric at all of them. Carrying Hillary is actually something new and fresh.

19. It is all about controlling the media to win US elections.

You have to look like a winner on US television screens to win in the US.

20. Man, I hope this will continue

 

But Chris Matthews on MSNBC was nevertheless raving about Dump's "manly" responses to the latest police shootings. Media meme is Dump is in control while Clinton is "untrustworthy."

My God, Dump Jr. is a white supremacist and Dump Sr. is a conman of the highest order! Stop "Dancing with the Stars" and wake up, America!!!

We've got to change this in the next four weeks...
