Looks Like The MSM Is Following Trump Around The Country Today To Air All His Appearances....

they had him on earlier from Dayton, Ohio and now they are awaiting him to arrive at his next stop - Cleveland.

It's all Trump - all the time now. What is the MSM trying to accomplish by this?

1. Ratings and tax breaks for the wealthy who own the media

This won't end till he's president. I watched nightline last night. They discussed Chicago but only from the point of view of trump and other republicans. No mention of Hillary or Bernie. They did interview a protester. It's reallllly messed up.

2. Ratings but they frame it as

doing something for the public good.

In fact it is a news story, a big one. No one knows how things will turn out and there is a scary factor, violence at campaign rallies, that is indeed new. At least it's new for now. Once it's Trump vs. Hillary the boredom factor will kick in since Trump will moderate his message. If it's Bernie it will be more interesting in spite of that the MSM is in the tank for Hillary more than Bernie and Hillary more than Trump. They'd accept Trump though because he'll do more for businesses in terms of lowering taxes.

4. It's Been That Way and It's Extremely Annoying

Because now his rallies are about spectacle and showing the next group of people to be roughed up and attacked at his rallies. So the spectacle is likely sending their ratings through the roof.

5. It's a police chase on the expressway.

And they all want to capture the moment the car careems off or the police open fire.

6. Uh, ratings?

 

The media follows the money. Ratings mean money.

Trump had to cancel a rally yesterday because of the angry response by civil rights activists.

What have Cruz, Rubio, or even Clinton, Sanders, done recently to generate this kind of news story?

Actually, that's been the story of the whole election cycle. Trump goes off the rails on a regular basis, his popularity increases as a result, and then of course the media can't get enough of it. It's no different from why some 'educational channels' (History, Disovery, TLC, etc) have abandoned a lot of educational shows in favor of dramatic reality TV crap.

8. Trump is blathering from Cleveland now on MSNBC

and saying all the protesters are Bernie supporters and making fun of Bernie.



Now they've gone to Kasich who for all his policy deficiencies is far nicer to listen to.

12. Make no mistake, Kasich is very right wing, and turned over Ohio to the 1%ers.

Trump just called Bernie a communist.

edited to add: but yes Trump is making the other idiots sounds smart and sane.

9. They're certainly not going to bother covering Marco Rubio

Florida, 2 days ago. And half these people were probably there to see Megyn Kelly.

10. Who's the idiot that created his schedule?

Dayton -- 4 hr drive to Cleveland and/or the expense to put that plane back in in air for 30 minutes. Then West Chester tomorrow which is about 25 miles south of the Dayton airport.

He should have done the stuff in one place then moved.

Oh yeah, he's gonna do a GREAT job conserving Federal money...... not

13. Media exposure of the stupidity and hatred spewed by Trump is a good thing.

As is exposure of the violence and bigotry of his supporters. Perhaps if Hitler's rise had been as well publicized his ear character and motivations would have been more widely know a great deal sooner.
