RUSH: Axios writer Felix Salmon reports that trust in the Drive-By-Media has reached a low point in America, it’s so low that he says it’s at a “crisis” state. He reports that for the first time ever, fewer than half of all Americans trust the “traditional media,” meaning the Drive-Bys.
Almost 60 percent of Americans believe that most “traditional” news outlets are more concerned with an ideology or political position than they are reporting the news. Almost the same percentage think that the Drive-By-Media journalists are willing to tell gross exaggerations, and to report things they know are false, i.e. fake news.
In typical Axios format, the reporter then has to tell his millennial readers “why it matters.”
Felix Salmon, maybe it’s pronounced Salmon, who knows, says this matters because “faith in society’s central institutions, especially in government and media, is the glue that holds society together.” That glue, he says, is “visibly dissolving,” and for many millions of Americans, it has disappeared completely.
Salmon doesn’t understand that the reason 60 percent of Americans have no faith in the media or in his precious government institutions is because they’re smart! They know the Drive-Bys and the Deep-State government are run by dishonest, corrupt, vicious leftists. And for the last four years, they’ve seen those liberals totally deranged with hatred for Trump and everyone who supports him. That’s really why it matters and they don’t even have the slightest idea.
