Sorry Media. Trump won. You lost.

The most recent Gallup poll regarding media trust breaks down like this:

  • Great deal - 8%
  • Fair amount - 24%
  • Not very much - 41%
  • None at all - 27%

So, if you are one of those people who love to cut and paste your "facts" from the media as "proof" of your arguments, consider that in a room with twelve people (including yourself) - you would statistically be the "only" person who would have a great deal of trust in the media facts you are using to promote your argument.

Let me repeat that: In a room full of twelve people you would be the only one having a great deal of trust in the media information you are using to promote your argument. 

On the flip side, eight of those people would basically hold very little, if any, trust in what you are using to promote your argument. The other three would go either way on whether or not they trust your source.

Hint - it's why people tend to think of you as weak minded, easily fooled, and basically brush aside your media sources as propaganda that you are silly enough to believe. Second hint: the eight people are not the ones on the outs with reality... it's you.  Stop pretending it's the other way around. 

Reminds me of the quote from David St Hubbins, the fictional lead singer of the band Spinal Tap:
I believe virtually everything I read, and I think that is what makes me more of a selective human than someone who doesn't believe anything.
Keep in mind that this "rockumentary' was a spoof, and David St Hubbins was not the sort of person you wanted to take your philosophical ideals from.
_______

Of course, this doesn't stop the media from continuing to dance with the girl who helped them cause this whole mess. From arguments about the removal of busts, to attacking the son of the new President, to basically behaving like a whiny third grader who was picked last for the kickball game, the media stays the course when it comes to their "all out assault" on Donald Trump.

Hey! Look over there!
You sort of want to remind the media, that in spite of all of their best efforts, Donald Trump won the election. In spite of their best efforts to promote the good guys, the Democratic Party has fallen to levels of power that have not been this low since the 1920s.  Ss it pertains to persuasive clout, the media have become eunuchs.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump was sworn in as President, he has signed executive orders, his cabinet is slowly but surely being confirmed, he will be offering a USSC pick within the next couple of weeks, the stock market is up, consumer confidence is up, people are seeing a brighter future... and the media is basically arguing with the Press secretary over crowd sizes and other bits of nonsense...

and pretending that it's someone else who doesn't have their eye on the ball.

LOL.. Seems the right including CH will believe anything they are told to believe. LOLOLOL Facts, I don't need no frigging facts.

President Trump's allergy to the truth appears to be spreading among Republicans.

A new poll out Wednesday showed that Republican voters overwhelmingly agree with the false claim that more people attended President Trump's inauguration that did the Women's March on Washington the next day.

According to the latest Morning Consult / Politico poll, 44% of Republican voters said more people attended Trump's inauguration on Friday, while only 20% of Republican respondents said more people attended Saturday's march.

Crowd scientists have widely agreed that the Women's March attendance was approximately three times the size of attendance for the inauguration

The most recent Gallup poll regarding media trust breaks down like this:

And you still use polls to formulate your opinion after defending trump low approvals as being biased. Dayum, flip, flop, flip flop. flip, flop. Worse than a northern pike on the shore.

Bad Moon Rising"

I see a bad moon rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightning.
I see bad times today.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes a-blowin'.
I know the end is comin' soon.
I feel rivers overflowin'.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
Alright!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

Well, don't go round tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

Don't come around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

This is ironic, as this is how I see you.

Of course Roger...

It's not the 8% that are fooled by the media...
It's the other 92% that are fooled into not believing them...

ok rog, then how about this -

why don't you show us how it's done? grab a bunch of your AA alkies (but not by the pussy), give them the link to the alky blog, and see if you can drive 6668 pageviews (most recent count in the sidebar/week).

make your argument using your idiotic think progress/mother jones cut n' paste posts.

you're a self-proclaimed genius who has an AA following because of your super high IQ and superior oratory skills.

go for it.

Ouch.

KD, President Law and Order said...

I Love this

President Trump is going to us a law that was passed by Hillary Clinton and Obimbo to build it, yep, that is going to sting those to leftist shitheads.


ICE ICE BABY

KD, HB fair warning said...

HB, you bring you cut n paste here, you inject your issue of the day and then you spend the next hours, days and weeks running from it.


Case in point you injected your teat sucking wife on to this blog, you said she gets the same amount take home from biliking SSI that she did working full time as a RN.

That by reading the Social Security web page is impossible , so I will give you this last chance to retract that and admit you lied or

Don’t Ignore Fraud. Speak Up.

Do you suspect someone of committing fraud against Social Security? The SSA OIG Fraud Hotline takes reports of alleged fraud, waste, and abuse.

KD, President Trump Keeping a pace of work said...

The evening of Nov. 8th, 2016 it looked so rosy, Hillary was up by 5,6,7, even 10 percent in the polls, yet, the silent majority in the right states 33 of them, voted for President Trump.

Why, well this economy is pure dog shit.

Why, because Hillary was a c*nt.

Why, because Obama was the circle jerk queen to the World.

Now, move a bit forward and see how HB was so happy to See the US Stock Markets Tanking in the wee hours of Nov 9th, when it was Clear, President Trump was really going to happen, so based on what HB said, and what his bbf Krugman said, they both must have dump their money into "puts" against the US Stock Markets, right.

Or are they both so unsure of themselves that they are again all talk and no action.

I put a modest amount into the US S & P 500 and have been very happy with that move, I will see IF this continues to go up or IF we might flatten out, on that signal, I will turn paper profits into real , realized gains and enjoy the money.

KD, Winning Biggly said...

ColdheartedTruth I have a modest request, can you give us a thread on Dow 20,000 and other pro US Economic News ?

Thanks

Wednesday's Close

Dow 20,068. 51, the fastest rise of 1,000 points since the Election of President Trump in US History

S & P 500 closed up almost 1 full percent on the day to a closing of 2,298.37 ,,, YUGE

"We are going to win so BIGGLY"

For the 82 percent of Whites that are in the Market and for the 48 percent of all blacks , this is what winning does for US Stocks and the common man/woman/child.
