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?


    Jim
    So you are saying that they have obsessed over Trump for 3 years in an adversarial way then?

    No. I'm saying it's the press' job to report the truth. Any one reporting the truth and interacting with trump will appear to be in an adversarial relationship with Donald Trump. Because the Truth itself is in an adversarial relationship with Donald Trump. Just look at the number of advisers and cabinet members that have left on bad terms with trump because they would not cross a line on what it true verses what trump wanted to hear!

    And that is what Acosta is saying. The apparent hostility that you rally around is nothing more than what happens when the truth meets Donald Trump. They are mortal enemies.

    Thus you prove again, All of us are better off trying to teach a pig to sing than attempting to have a conversation with you about Trump because you’re incapable of being objective.

    You of all people are not one to talk about being impossible to rationally converse with.

    I’m not the one saying there is literally not a single nice thing to be said about a political opponent, ever.

    Can you find me actually saying that?

    I didn't think so.

    And I have complimented him on his support for Israel, and on these pages. But you missed that I guess.

    Trump's adversarial relationship with the truth is not anything new, nor is it anything that isn't obvious to the majority of the people observing him over time.

    This seems to be an admission on your part that the media deliberately avoids reporting positively about Trump in order to focus on the negative. That sounds like bias to me.

    Your words:

    “Any one reporting the truth and interacting with trump will appear to be in an adversarial relationship with Donald Trump.”

    So there isn’t a single nice or good thing ever, to be said about Trump?

    You don't appear to be reasoning well at this moment. Trump lies so often that anyone reporting the truth will have to confront a lie of Trumps.

    This simple fact does not in anyone's universe equate to 'there isn't a single nice or good thing ever to be said about Trump'.

    It just means he lies so much that anyone reporting the truth is bound to bump up against it and be required to call him on it. That forces the relationship to be adversarial.

    Or you’re being fed a narrative where Trump is the worst thing ever and anything good is ignored or covered up. If this isn’t true, show me an article on CNN’s main page that depicts Trump in a good light. Can you?
