RUSH: Investor’s Business Daily with a poll — and, by the way, I need to repeatedly remind you that the IBD poll remains one of the most accurate polls in recent years in predicting the outcome of various elections, including presidential. What they have determined in this latest poll is: “Public Turned Off by Media’s Relentlessly Negative Coverage of Trump — 55% of the public says they’ve grown ‘weary from the media’s persistently negative coverage of President Trump.’
“A roughly equal share (54%) also believe that the news media ‘has assumed the role of the opposition party, constantly opposing the president and his policies at every turn.'” Fifty-five percent! Now, you would think the members of the Drive-By Media would look at that, and they wouldn’t be happy, that would not please them. And they don’t care.
They’re perfectly fine with it because that is their role. That is their job, and they found a way to monetize it. That’s why it’s never gonna end. This partisanship in the media may be what rescues them from financial problems. It’s how they convince — it’s how they coerce — the genuinely insane, lunatic base to keep clicking on their websites. So it isn’t gonna change any time soon.
