Yeah, the pathetic double-standards and hypocrisy of the libtards in the FAKE NEWS networks is one of the main reasons why the lamestream media is so roundly reviled and hated in this country. They stupidly blame President Trump, but they are the ones who have denigrated and debauched themselves.

Over the past several months, journalists have had no qualms about attacking President Trump on a deeply personal level, calling him an "embarrassing" "unhinged" "liar," a "sociopath" and a "madman" presiding over a "malignant presidency."

But eight years ago, many of these same reporters were offended at criticism of Barack Obama and his policies, scorning the "mean," "ugly," "offensive" "vitriol" and "idiot talk" hurled at the last President during the same months of his term.

While the media have given plenty of oxygen to anti-Trump protests since his first day in office, the Tea Party protests against Obama in 2009 were disparaged as "orchestrated," "AstroTurf," and criticism of ObamaCare was portrayed as a consequence of racist unwillingness to accept a black President.

Today's journalists see it as a badge of professionalism to harass Trump and his spokesmen, but eight years ago some reporters derided talk radio, Fox News and others in the media who failed to get on board the Obama train as peddling "hateful crap" that "borders on sedition."

Some in the media even suggested that criticism of Obama was threatening "the President's personal safety," with New York Times columnist Tom Friedman raising the 1995 assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by an extremist: "The parallels to Israel then and America today turn my stomach."

Eight years later, does anyone in the liberal media worry that their constant negative coverage might be putting President Trump in danger? ...
