To say that the predominantly liberal mainstream media have been at times hostile to President-elect Donald Trump throughout his campaign for the presidency would be nothing short of an understatement.
There had been hopes following the election that the media may reassess themselves and how they handled covering Trump, but if the words uttered by CNN anchor Chris Cuomo last week were any indication, we are in for a rather tumultuous ride over the next four years.
According to Real Clear Politics, Cuomo essentially declared an open and ongoing vendetta against Trump during the Wednesday edition of “New Day,” in which he seemingly vowed to oppose the incoming Trump administration, while speaking to CNN political director David Chalian.
“I like that you described his campaign as a happening,” stated Cuomo. “I see it all proof of a very simple notion, the media cannot yield. This administration is going to demand constant fact-checking and opposition because otherwise, you don’t know which way it’s going to go from day to day. That’s just the fact.”
It is worth noting that as Cuomo more or less declared open war against Trump’s administration by himself and his cohorts in the media, Chalian could be seen smiling and nodding in agreement.
While this in and of itself is not the least bit surprising, it serves as yet another reminder of the ludicrous double standard liberals hold when it comes to how they treat Republican versus Democrat politicians and administrations.
Does anybody remember CNN declaring itself to be openly hostile and in direct opposition to President Barack Obama’s administration? Of course not, because such a thing would never happen, no matter what we now know Obama’s administration did while being given a pass by the likes of Cuomo and CNN.
If anybody is wondering why Trump and his supporters — and even some people diametrically opposed to Trump and his supporters — hold the liberal mainstream media in such low regard, this is a prime example of why right here.
