I think the press always did those fake news, copy producing things but readers today are more sophisticated than their grandfathers and tend to look with a more jaundiced eye at what is printed. When combined with Trump's raising of the issues people are stepping back and reexamining what they read. The press has not responded to the new more sophisticated readers.

The most telling experience a citizen reader might experience is to know a story and then read the press spin on that story.

If you want to laugh watch how the New England Patriots org -- Coach Belichick, Brady and Robert Kraft -- handle the reporters. It is clear that all three, Kraft the most cautious, have nothing but contempt for reporters. Brady and Belichick, slap them down: "this interview is over". Or, "how far do you guys plan to go back?"

Another example of that is when you are charged on the front page and found innocent on page 12 C section. That has happened to me with the dog thing.

I sense a recent softening of political propaganda in the Boston Globe recent days. I mean they had gotten so bad that if a kid tripped on a rock they found a way to blame the Not-my-president Trump for the child's skinned knee.

Its comical to see the Boston Globe panic over their dispute with President Trump claiming that his attack on the press is attacking the pillar of democracy. When I read those newspapers, and there are others, I get all tingly inside and even hear patriotic anthems in the background. Poor bastards are witnessing their chickens coming to roost. Next thing you know they will be taking a knee at football games. Trump IS my president and the press made it happen. They are all nuts.

They don't vet the stories, check and double check the sources, nor do they tell both sides or care about harm they cause. If it's to be oops missed that, the apology is a two liner hidden under a car ad and looks like the small type.

They spin the story in a way that will make it more interesting. The idea has always been to sell newspapers and a better story, not a more accurate one, is what sells papers. The difference between years ago and today is that people today know more about how news papers work. Sure, some things can't be politasized in which case there is a better chance for accuracy. What corrupts the press is politics. A shark story is likely to be cleaner unless a republican kills a shark.

Maybe all the shark stories have dulled the awareness of the ever so popular Piping Plover. Now there's a global issue if ever there was one !

The other day some guy was yanked out of his lifestyle and sent packing, and arrested by ICE. Press is on it...poor guy, downtrodden, does not deserve this, American ( illegal ? Yep ). What they left out of the story ? He was wanted for murder. Everytime I read something from the "Mainstream Media" I consider the story as the first paragraph, in a story that has a darker reality to it.

Now the newspapers are sayin that it is un-American to critacise the press. But its okay to say our Commander-in-Chief is "not my president."

Un-American to believe the press is more like it. And it's becoming the reality they so dread.

I know I started this thread but I can't believe these newspapers are so blatantly antagonistic, so corrupt, as to think they can dominate public opinion with attaack after attack on the present administration. Sure, I know that President Trump has some problems but the morning paper reads like Provda. The Democrats have become violent. Scary!!!!

This started with the most divisive president in my life: Obama

And he threw the gauntlet down when he said the police “acted stupidly” with that
Communist professor in Cambridge.

It’s been downhill since then, IMO

There is more racial division today than when Kennedy bussed the Freedom riders up from the south. Now we have players taking the knee before football games which is pissing a lot of people off. Can we just play phuckin football? Paleeze!
