American journalists are trying to control the country's presidential election. Large media outlets such as NBCNews, ABCNews, YahooNews and others have an agenda to derail both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's presidential bids. The media continuously degrades Trump and his supporters while Bernie Sanders is presented as a fool. Simultaneously, Hillary Clinton is presented as experienced and popular.
For example, The New York Times published an article titled "Crossing the Line" predominantly claiming that women have bad experiences interacting with Trump. However, one of the women, Rowanne Brewer Lane, interviewed by the New York Times latter claimed the news organization twisted her words inorder promoted their own agenda. She stated "They spun it to where it appeared negative. I did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump."
When Trump supporters were attacked in San Jose by violent left wing extremists, The Los Angeles Times wrote a covering article "Protesters punch, throw eggs at Trump supporters in San Jose" The piece emphasized the newspaper's' agenda that Donald Trump causes violence. The article quotes San Jose mayor Sam Liccardo, "At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign" The article also cavalierly stated "Police were keeping their distance from the crowd as the scuffles played out but kept them from getting any closer to the convention center." Thus, while violent left wing extremists were attacking people, police apparently stood by and did nothing for 90 minutes. Imagine the LATimes reaction if Clinton supporters were attacked by violent right wing extremists. Would they blame Clinton for the attacks?
Lastly, the Huffington Post announced that all Donald Trump article will have a disclaimer: Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
The media's agenda is to discredit Trump as a presidential candidate.
Similarly, the media also has a negative agenda toward Bernie Sanders. For example, when he defeated Hillary in Alaska, Washington and Hawaii, many news outlets claimed Sanders won only because of white voters. This caused the creation of a popular Twitter hashtag #BernieMadeMeWhite by non white Sanders supports. The hashtag pointed out media lies and distortion of facts. However, YahooNews, one of the media sites claiming Sanders had little support among non whites subsequently published an article titled "Unconventional #19: Bernie Sanders’ radical plan for Philadelphia (and more!)". This new article claimed Sanders associates were agitators and black radicals. The reason behind this bizarre article was to portray Sanders as crazy and unelectable.
Lastly, numerous outlets such as the Washington Post, YahooNews, TIME Magazine, NBCNews, Associated Press, ABCNews and CNN posted articles before the California primary proclaiming Hillary as the Democratic Party nominee. The motive behind this media blitz was to discourage Sanders supporters from voting so that Hillary would not suffer defeat in California.
Unlike the other candidates, Hillary Clinton is treated with respect and admiration.
For example MSNBC posted an article "Did Clinton Just Finally Figure Out How to Hit Trump? The article claimed Hillary creatively ripped apart Trump stating "It wasn't just an incredibly well written speech, it was arguably Clinton's most compelling public moment of the entire campaign so far" Yet her speech said not much of anything. It was a typical presidential campaigning speech that claimed her opponent didn’t know what they were doing. These types of mundane claims occur in every US presidential campaign. YahooNews wrote an article titled "Clinton finds footing against Trump as Sanders makes last stand in California". The article cited many of Hillary's criticisms against Trump and concluded with a Clinton campaign pitch “I can’t do any of this alone. I want to finish strong here in California. It means the world to me.”
Hillary Clinton faces little media scrutiny. The media's agenda is to persuade the public that Hillary is the only viable candidate for president. The reason behind this agenda is feminism. Many news journalists are avowed feminists. As an example, New York Times reporter, Yamiche Alcindor recently asked Bernie Sanders if his staying in the presidential race is sexist "because it’s getting in the way of what could be the first female president". Alcindor's idea that its sexist for a man to run against Clinton is representative of the entrenched female chauvinist culture that exists throughout the American news media. Its also no coincidence that news organizations are advancing Sen Elizabeth Warren (herself a staunch feminist who claims all economic problems are caused by men) as vice president.
The United States news media is neither objective nor fair. Many articles are published with the intent of promoting a specific agenda. News organizations are molding political information in an effort to control who is president of the United States.
