Why Media's Bias works in Trump's favor.

I am a big Bernie Sanders supporter. I get angry as I watch Corporate Media's efforts to hobble Sanders's success and clear the path for Biden. A very mild effort compared to Corporate Media legendary efforts to hobble Trump.

It performs a tremendous disservice to people who would like to see another president after the next election.

How? It creates complacency. The belief that Trump is just an idiotic accidental President.

The Democrat National Committee couldn't beat Trump in 2016 with "Can't lose Clinton". A billion dollars and they failed to defeat a personality challenged candidate who never won an election. The explanation for their historical loss and incompetence was to blame others.

This Corporate Media echo chamber subdues the need for serious action. We must stop running against the caricature of Donald Trump and deal with the reality of Donald Trump. He is now far more powerful than in 2016. He is a formidable force. He is now so well-financed. He has a passionate base. He also has had 3-years' experience in Washington. He is on the verge of destroying many of his enemies. He is for good or bad a transformative President. This is a reality not likely to get coverage. Trump now has a record his base loves. very low unemployment, a trade deal with China, record stock market returns. But still, for many of us, it is like having Andrew Dice Clay as President.

He is not a bungling idiot who became President accidentally. He is a shrewd man who understands his base, media, far better than the DNC. I realize this is heretical.

Do not be oblivious to his true power. Explore beyond narrative-driven Corporate Media and DNC messaging. Step out of the echo chamber. Be assured the entire country does always agree with you and social media friends.
