On the 24th day of February, 2017, a Friday, Donald Trump made a media ban against some news outlets which includes CNN, BBC, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and Politico from covering the media white house press briefing. There is no doubt that Donald Trump is right with this ban. Given the intensity of information war media organizations like CNN and New York Times are waging against President Donald Trump’s administration, I guess he has been pushed to the wall.
There are several fake news media organizations distorting facts and giving incorrect information for the sole purpose of discrediting Donald Trump and manipulating public opinion against him. I do not blame Trump for banning these news outlets. If he doesn’t stop them, they will eventually stop him.
The motive of these fake news media is clear. CNN, Los Angeles Times and New York Times among other rogue news outlet supported Hilary Clinton during the election campaign. They carried out a lot of fake polls predicting that Hilary Clinton will win the election by a landslide. It was obvious that all these polls were fraudulent with the aim of boosting the image of Hilary Clinton and manipulating public opinion in her favor.
Why were the press doing this? The reason is not far-fetched. Most of the anti-trump news outlets involved in the fake polls during the election campaign had previously endorsed Hilary Clinton as a presidential candidate. This is wrong for free press. The endorsement of one candidate over another shows that these media organizations have a skeleton in their cupboards and are not actually working in the overall interest of the American people. They were working to promote their own selfish interests. Fast forward to November 8, 2016 when Donald Trump won the election. The fake news media organizations like CNN became disgruntled and declared war on Trump.
CNN and other news outlets started airing false news against Trump, from the allegation that his victory was manipulated by Russian Intelligence to Trump being Putin’s puppet, there seemed to be no end to the false accusations against President Donald Trump. No little thanks to wicked news media coverage, CNN reporters and other rogue news agencies made Trump’s inauguration a controversial one. They abandoned the real issues and focused on crowd size. Making the President look like a liar on his inauguration day.
From the day of inauguration, these fake news media followed Trump all the way, discrediting each of his political appointees and condemning every executive order made by the Trump administration. Of recent, the information war and manipulation of public opinion has gone to a new high, with the CNN and other rogue press attacking each of Donald Trump’s speeches particularly the one he made at a Boeing Plant in South Carolina.
Now if I am asked this question, “Is Donald Trump right to make a media ban against negative media outlets?” I will say yes. The reason if very simple. It is either Donald Trump wins the war against bad media or they win him. It has to go either way. If Trump wants to win the war against negative news outlets then he must impose a media ban to stop them. Why does Trump deserve to win the war, Trump’s administration deserves to survive. He was voted in by the American public in a free and fair election. If the media wants to destroy him, then they have to be stopped.
