Why the Media’s Trump Lie Machine is Failing

Daniel Greenfield, No one believes the media anymore. Every five minutes the many mouths of the media broadcast, type, post and shriek that President Donald J. Trump is a liar. After months of this treatment, more voters find him truthful than them. 49% of voters believe that Trump and his people are telling the truth.
