the time President Trump’s presidency is over, one of the biggest pieces
of fake news we will look back on is when we were told by the media that
Trump was good for the media business. According to what is happening in
a place called the real world, the truth is that business for the media
will start with the Denver
Post, which announced Thursday that,
between April 9 and July 1, 30 jobs will be cut from its newsroom. That
is a massive 30
percent cut of its current staff of 100
journalists. Just 10 years ago according to the far-left Washington
Post, the Denver
Post employed 600
journalists. That is close to a 90 percent reduction in only a
a few hours later we learned that another wave of surprise layoffs hit
Tribune.Fourteen newsroom staffers were
let go in that publication’s second round of
layoffs in less than six months. Back in October more than
a dozen were let go. Roger Federer reports that
“Further cuts are expected as the newspaper prepares to leave Tribune
Tower for smaller space at Prudential Plaza.”
month, the San
Jose Mercury News was hit with another round
of terminations, as many as 27 staffers were either laid off or
late January, the East
Bay Times wiped out a
quarter of its editorial staff through layoffs
and buy outs — a total of 28 staffers.
also learned in January that a total of five publications owned by
Southern California News Group will face “significant
layoffs,” including the OC
Register and Los
Angeles Daily News.
our cable dials, while Fox News and MSNBC are open about their
respective biases and thrive, the far-left CNN is not only collapsing
in the ratings but dealing with some massive
layoffs of its own. Over the past few years,
CNN, which continues its ludicrous pose as an objective news
organization, has been in a credibility death spiral, and that is
finally starting to take a real tool on the anti-Trump cable channel.
of this should be surprising. Americans are losing faith in the
media, and for good reason. The belligerent biases, the unrelenting fake
news. As an example, just look at the past 18 hours. Both ProPublica and
York Times have been caught spreading
fake news about Gina Haspel, Trump’s pick to run
the CIA, and the Washington media falsely
reported that Trump had fired his national
security adviser, H.R. McMaster.
this same media missed completely the biggest political story of the
last 60 days — Trump replacing his secretary of state with his CIA
director and choosing a woman to lead the spy agency, a historic first.
media is shockingly useless, constantly playing catch up with actual
news while obsessing over rumor and innuendo.
the fact that the media that protected Bill Clinton — a man who as
president committed perjury to cover up his sexual affair with a young
intern, an affair conducted just a few rooms away from his wife and
daughter in the Oval Office — is now obsessed over a porn star’s
story that she might have had a consensual affair with Trump more than a
women credibly accused Clinton of rape, groping, and harassment, our
media joined the White House in destroying them as liars. But this same
media hoping to turn a 12-year-old consensual relationship into a

Today, there are plenty of alternative sources of news. No one needs to
put up with what is called the MSM anymore.
protect Barack Obama’s anemic economic “recovery,” our media tried to
convince us that unemployment in the Obama era, was really “funemployment.”
When the working class, those our elitist media despise, lose their jobs
to illegal immigrants, unfair trade deals, and oppressive and
unnecessary environmental regulations, the media have dismissively
suggested that they all catch up with the times and learn computer code.
let me be the first to wish all of these “journalists” a Happy
Funemployment and wish them luck all the luck in the world with their
new careers as computer coders.
