Why do people care what the media thinks about Trump or any candidate. That is not their job, but they don't do a worthwhile job reporting the news.
People have been following and listening to the media ever since they created cable news. The problem is that cable news doesn't report the news, they opine, or editorialize the news events.
They produce polls, and pundits, and have talking heads that give the viewers their opinions. The viewers, at least most of them follow the media more like sheep, than intelligent beings.
As for Trump, the attitude of the Media is more of an intentional plan to attack him, and discredit him as a candidate.
If people can't make their own conclusions about Trump without quoting the media or the other candidates, they really shouldn't be voting.
The loyal political party voter is already treating the party more like they are the bible, then demanding that their party do something for majority of the people and the US.
Most people have never been asked to be part of a poll, and yet most people seem content to believe that the results of the poll are real for them and all the other people that didn't participate in the poll.
In reality, too many people like to follow, and they will agree with the results rather than coming to an independent conclusion. You can see it in life, by seeing how the majority of people conform to an idea, whether it is at work, or at a social gathering.
Stewart and O'Reilly are capping on their audience to have them buy their opinion. And these two for example are most always at opposites.
The country has been in decline since the fake oil shortages of the 70s, and that decline is the result of the traditional politician. Having Trump could be good or it could be bad, but going with the traditional politician will surely give us more decline. This is verifiable by looking at US history and seeing that nothing was really accomplished by either party. They are on opposite sides of the see saw, and see saws can only go up and down, and never forward.
