Americans Find Trump More Trustworthy Than Media; Poll
MSM has a 14 point credibility gap
Paul Joseph Watson
February 9, 2017

A new national poll finds that Americans see Donald Trump as being more trustworthy than the mainstream media.

The survey, conducted by Emerson College Polling, found that the Trump administration is considered to be truthful by 49% of respondents compared to 48% who think it’s untruthful.

In comparison, the news media is considered to be untruthful by 53% of respondents compared to 39% who find it to be truthful – a 14 point gap.

The numbers suggest that despite their constant attacks on the president’s truthfulness, returned in kind by Trump, the media still has a huge credibility problem amongst the American people.

This perception has undoubtedly been fueled in part by the numerous instances of fake news circulated by the media in recent weeks, including the phony story about Trump having MLK’s bust removed from the oval office.

A rap sheet compiled by the Daily Wire details forty times the mainstream media was caught lying in the last week alone.

President Trump himself shared a link via Twitter to a story that details 16 fake news stories that reporters have run since Trump won.

They include hoaxes such as Nancy Sinatra complaining about Trump using her father’s song at the inaugural ball, as well as resignations at the State Department that never happened and the false claim that Trump had “photoshopped his hands bigger” for a White House photograph.

Yes, there are false stories peddled, but also there is spin put on legitimate stories and suppression of stories which make President Trump look good and Liberals bad. Happens all the time with the MSM and no member of it is to be trusted.

Here is a perfect example

Trump Suggests That SCOTUS Nominee Neil Gorsuch's Criticism Was Misrepresented
By TOM KUTSCH

President Trump today suggested that reported comments from his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, calling attacks by the president on the judiciary "demoralizing" and "disheartening," were misrepresented, even though a spokesman for Gorsuch confirmed the remarks.

.......................................................

White House press secretary Sean Spicer insisted in today’s press briefing that Blumenthal misrepresented what Gorsuch told him –- telling reporters the judge was not referring to any specific case.

But Blumenthal is standing by his characterization.

...................................................

former New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte's telling of the meeting -- not only contradicts Blumenthal’s telling of the meeting, but also what Gorsuch’s spokesman previously told ABC News.

“Sen. Ayotte, who was there, made it very clear that he was commenting in general about attacks on the judiciary,” Spicer said.

Ayotte, who is leading the White House team working to confirm Gorsuch, 49, said in a statement today: "Judge Gorsuch has made it very clear in all of his discussions with senators, including Sen. Blumenthal, that he could not comment on any specific cases and that judicial ethics prevent him from commenting on political matters. He has also emphasized the importance of an independent judiciary, and while he made clear that he was not referring to any specific case, he said that he finds any criticism of a judge's integrity and independence disheartening and demoralizing.”

And I stand by Senator Blumenthal. After all his reputation for honesty is indisputable.

With his tweets, President Trump is referring to a situation that unfolded during the 2010 U.S. Senate elections, when Richard Blumenthal was running against Linda McMahon. In May 2010, The New York Times reported that Blumenthal said in a 2008 speech “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam.”

But as the Times reported, Blumenthal did not actually serve in Vietnam as he suggests there. Instead, he received five military deferments from 1965 to 1970. The Times also noted that Blumenthal took repeated steps to avoid going to Vietnam.

Instead, Blumenthal served in the Marine Reserve beginning in 1970, joining a unit in Washington and working on projects like fixing campgrounds and organizing toy drives
