Gee, I wonder why much of the country no longer trusts the #OLDMEDIA: Why the ed board at LA Times attacked Trump

(From The LA Times)

Why we took a stand on Trump

The answer is simple. Even though we’re only 11 weeks into the Trump presidency, there is good reason to believe that rather than grow into the job, he’ll remain the man he was on the campaign trail — impulsive, untruthful, narcissistic, ignorant of the limits on presidential power and woefully unprepared to wield it. Rather than wait until the public grew inured to the lies, the undermining of democratic institutions, the demagoguery and bluster, we decided to lay out our concerns at length and in detail.

Where was the LA Times editorial board during the massive abuses under the Obama administration? The illegal war in Libya. The persecution of TEA Party groups by the IRS? Fast and Furious? The massive cronyism. The Green Rush that enriched the rich. And so on?

Sure the LA Times covered the stories, but most in the #OLDMEDIA, #CRONYMEDIA, liked Obama, and that’s why they cheered him into office and why they protected him all through his presidency. And they are trying to protect Obama’s “legacy” now. (Not that Obama has much of a legacy other than polarizing the country and instituting Obamacare which as even Dems acknowledge has been a massive failure.) The #OLDMEDIA do not like that Trump is challenging them and the cozy relationship the #OLDMEDIA has/had with the government. They do not like that Trump, for all of his challenges (and there are many) has rightly called the Obama administration out on all manner of things.

If there had been anything other than cheerleading for Hillary during the election and anything less than total apologism for Obama all through his presidency I might, might, be able to buy what the LA Times is selling. I think Trump, like every president deserves heaps of scrutiny. Such scrutiny is vital.

The thing is though that most of the #OLDMEDIA are and have been cheerleaders and apologists for Trump’s sworn opponents. So forgive us if the editorial board’s attack strikes us little more than a partisan political operation. We’d expect nothing less from Hollywood’s newspaper.
