    My comment is in the same 'spirit' as the thread. So YOU lighten up.

    My point is that Acosta said that the MSM hasn't been focused on attacking one person (Trump obviously) yet, even if Trump is as bad and responsible for it as you say, the result is STILL the MSM has been focused on attacking him for the last 3 years. So Acosta is in denial. He is one of the worst when it comes to being obsessed with Trump.

    I don't see it that way (pretend to be surprised )

    Trump invites the sort of negative attention he gets - day in and day out. They are focused on him and continuously critical of him because of what he does every day, and with each day he seems to manage to raise the bar one more notch in terms of the absolute absurdity of his actions and policies. Do you suppose that ANYONE can proclaim to the nation that if a foreign adversary gives him dirt on a political opponent that he will take it gladly and NOT get the full, negative, attention of the news media and anyone with half an ounce of sense that has a public voice? And do you suppose that any reporter, not matter how objective, will not over 3 years of the same build a reputation among those that ignore all of this that they are 'biased against him'?

    The problem is that those of you that would prefer Trump be in office over the alternative is that you are motivated and willing to overlook so much that you just can not longer perceive that this man is and always has been off the charts in terms of warranting negative press and attention. You've looked the other way so long you just can't see how bad it is. It's what happens to people that, for example, live near a paper mill. How can they live there you say, the smell is Soooo bad! But if you live there, you've grown accustomed to it. You don't smell it any more.

    No. Journalists are not biased in their focus on him. He invites it, demands it. If they were not focused on him, they would not be doing their jobs. In fact, NOT reporting the absurdities that are Trump would reflect bias, not the other way 'round. In states like China and Russia, leaders can't be criticized for the bad things they do. The media is not allowed to focus in on corrupt leaders that do not act in the best interests of their country. That is not true in the US.

    well it is true he invites it. He has them wrapped around his little finger. Anytime he wants to be in the new cycle, he just pops out a tweet and the entire MSM drops everything to report and scoff at him for the next few day. When they calm down, he just sends out another tweet.

    But the result is exactly what Acosta denies: They spend all of their time on Trump. And their goal is to mock and damage him. They hate him.

    Trump keeps doing stupid things. So he keeps the negative focus on him. And the negative things he does completely overshadow any positive stuff, so there you go.

    OK more slooowly... EVEN IF Trump is at fault, the result is that the MSM has been targeting him for 3 years and denigrating him, which is exactly what Acosta said they were not doing. They take the liberal side on most issues. They are biased.

    Sorry - no deal. And I disagree that the MSM 'has been targeting him for 3 years'. Rather, Trump has continuously engaged in negative, lying behavior that has to be covered and exposed for what it is. The press is required to report the truth. Since trump lies about almost everything, they are forced to report the truth behind what he is lying about. There really is no other way to cover trump than in an adversarial way. He's a messenger of falsehoods and deception and he wants everyone around him to go along with those lies and deceptions. What else can they do?
