Ex-Diplomat: Trump's Election Proves Mainstream Media Worthless

Canadian ex-official eviscerates corporate media as biased, fake news

U.S. public distrust of the mainstream media, or MSM, is now so great that the more they attacked Donald Trump during the presidential election, the more his credibility and popularity grew, retired Canadian diplomat Patrick Armstrong told Sputnik.

One of the reasons Trump won was that the more the MSM reviled him, the more support he gained.

“If the liars accuse him of something, he must be innocent of it,” Armstrong explained.

A survey by research firm TNS UK, commissioned by Sputnik and released Thursday, showed that 80 percent of Americans considered domestic media coverage of the 2016 campaign was biased toward one or the other of the major-party nominees.

Armstrong said he believed the 80 percent distrust figure was in reality too low and that an even higher percentage of Americans refused to believe the distortions they were fed through the New York and Washington-based national media.

“Why as few as 80 percent? The bias and general worthlessness of the MSM as a source of information has been apparent for years,” he said.

Unless they all colluded to have similar numbers, they would not be believable. That mere fact alone proves they are ALL in on the lying contest.

This story represents real truth regarding media. After Trump was elected almost every story on MSN news (my old home page) was always publishing outright lies as real news. Otherwise they would use heavy handed negative speculation attempting to diminish Trump. Their constant hate in my face had me looking for a new homepage. I tried yahoo news, what a joke. They're even worse than MSN so I just tonight am going to try CBS news. It can't be any worse that the other two full time Liberal Liars of media. It's a rotten media that the unsuspecting probably believe completely? The speculation that Trump might be starting his own public TV broadcast would put the brakes on the liars of media. The horse's mouth would undermine/possible stop or slow down their incessant lies. If any good or great home pages with plenty of national and international news exists, please tell me the site, I'll try every one.

Trump did and end run around the MSM with the use of Social media proving we don't need them.

I think we are being fooled even now about this election.
The numbers don't add up.

The entire thing was a sharade.
