Greg Hunter – Trump talks, he makes news. Trump doesn’t talk, he makes news. Trump tweets, he makes news. Trump offends, he makes news. Trump makes sense, he makes news. You may think what is going on with Donald Trump is all about Trump, it is really about the changing landscape of media and the old mainstream media (MSM) losing its relevance. Look at what just happened with Trump and this debate fiasco with FOX.
FOX thinks it’s still running the media show, and Trump is showing them they are not. When you hear about Trump tweeting, switch out the word ‘tweet’ with ‘broadcast’ and there you have it. Trump, via the new media such as Facebook and Twitter, doesn’t need a network of TV stations or a cable outlet.
The mainstream media is so freaked out they cover each and every tweet of Trump’s so as to not miss out and retain some relevance. No front-runner would have ever turned down a TV appearance until now. Why did he turn it down–he doesn’t need it. The MSM needs him. Times are changing, and the MSM is losing its grip in media and thus its relevance. Of that there is no doubt.
The USA Today finally stopped saying we are in a recovery. You know why? Because we are not in a recovery, at least not for Main Street, but that doesn’t stop them from pushing what I think is a false narrative.
