Liberal media biases ignoring Trump wins at their own peril

Many of the latest drops that came Sunday point to a media bias facing the Trump administration from general journalistic coverage to a specific reporter at the New York Times.

In the general sense the posts point out that the President cannot get coverage of his many successes such as: Demilitarizing North Korea, the economic agenda, which had stock market at all-time highs and lowest unemployment levels in more than 30 years and Trump’s ability to grow an economy that was languishing for eight years by in some quarters doubling output of “The New Normal” of 2% Gross Domestic Product.

On the specific side, the Sunday drops point to a reporter named Maggie Haberman.

Their father, Clyde Haberman, worked at The Post and then was a long-time columnist for the NY Times picking up a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News with a team investigating then-NY Governor Elliot Spitzer’s prostitution scandal, which led to his resignation.

The drop brings up Maggie’s infamous mention in the Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Director John Podesta email that was published by Wikileaks. These drops come after ex-Editor of the NY Times Jill Abramson last week cited Maggie’s reporting as being biased against the Trump White House in her new book.

This from Podesta to top campaign staff and Hillary, and was prior to Maggie joining the Times:

“We have has a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed. While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for reengaging the beat press that covers HRC, for this we think we can achieve our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”

Sunday’s drop infers that Maggie has had plenty of recent Tweets citing trains and that she may be dropping coded messages for the liberal Democrats since the language is sometimes odd.

Let’s just say none of these revelations surprise me in the least, since Maggie’s liberal leanings have been well-known for years. My hope is that she is not in over her head as the drops suggest and that there is time for her to get out of any trouble she may be in.

Peaceful transfer of power — Not

This presidential transition is one for the ages.

Outgoing President Obama held his last press conference on Friday. Near the top of the Q&A, Obama stated: The US intelligence I have seen “gives me great confidence” that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and the email account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.

“This happened at the highest levels of the Russian government,” the president said.

“I will let you make that determination as to whether there is high-level Russian officials who go off rogue and decide to tamper with the U.S. election process without Vladimir Putin knowing about it.”

No proof needed because he is preaching to the choir of White House press corps, who would not challenge Obama to provide details on his charge.

Ironically the Russian government is the only one talking about this.

The U.S. “should either stop talking about it or finally produce some evidence; otherwise it looks highly unseemly,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Friday said of the Obama administration’s accusation according to Russian state news agencies.

Okay, let’s move on to Michelle Obama.

The outgoing First Lady and possible Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, came out Friday and said “Hope is lost.”

What a lovely holiday sentiment for the country.

It’s questionable what the their motive is for these recent actions. I’m not going to speculate on motive, but these actions in the least show they are sore losers. At the upper end of the case you could say these statements are evidence of psychopathic, egotistical actions.

I suppose the election was proof-positive that America repudiated Obama’s eight years of economic malaise. America wanted to move away from placating the few at the expense of the many.

Perhaps someone should point out to the White House — including the Press Secretary Josh Earnest — we have a long history of making sure there is a peaceful transfer of power and you don’t want your legacy to one of thwarting that.
