“60%, 70% of the political media is really, really dishonest”

Trump doing what no politician has done before, making the media the issue:

DONALD TRUMP, GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Let me tell you. The people don’t trust you and the people don’t trust the media. And I understand why.

COOPER: Right. And politicians.

TRUMP: You know, I have always been covered, fairly, accurately because it was usually a financial press. And you know numbers are numbers and my numbers happen to be great. So, I was always sort of treated fair.

With the media it’s, not all cases, some, some of the political media is great. And really honest. Even if they’ve don’t want to want to be, they’re really honest. But I find that 60%, 70% of the political media is really, really dishonest.

The single most important political change needed today is to reduce – you will never remove – media bias. Obama could not be dog catcher without the media. As it is, he remains almost as strong as they day he first ran for office in spite of the disasters he has not just coincided with in office, but has personally caused by the political choices he has made. I hope this catches on with others, but it has taken someone like Trump to actually start a process that needs to continue as long and as hard as it can.
