My take on the media’s coverage of 2016 U.S. election

Over at Economic Collapse News, I have provided my opinion on how the mainstream media have covered the 2016 United States presidential election. So far, I give them a D-, but I go into more detail.

Here is an excerpt:

The 2016 United States presidential election has probably been the most interesting election cycle since the 1980s when Ronald Reagan was making plenty of hilarious jokes. The 2016 presidential election is pitting one corrupt, lying, crony statist (Hillary Clinton) against a constant, hour-by-hour flip flopper (Donald Trump). You also have potentially a third-party candidate making the debate stage this month.

It has indeed been an interesting election year. But perhaps the most compelling part of the 2016 campaign are the mainstream and alternative media outlets. The paucity of consistency, the blatant hypocrisy and obvious partisanship are taking over the campaign trails. Ostensibly, television networks and journalists favor Clinton, while the mainstream media admonish Trump because of supposed racism and bigotry rather than his inane policies.

The media’s lack of objectivity has never been so prevalent than this year.
