It was darkly funny at first how neither corporate media nor their Democrat friends could agree with a single thing President Donald Trump said, no matter how plausible — or even obvious — it was. He realized this, and used it to great effect.

When Trump said America needed to be great, corporate media said it had never been great. The New York Times even launched a massive project to prove this. Although they later had to retract the opening thesis of the project — that the colonists rebelled to preserve slavery — their friends still gave them a Pulitzer.

When Trump insulted the vicious and evil MS-13 gang of rapists and child murderers, calling them “animals,” corporate media defended MS-13. Attacking MS-13 this way is extremely racist, they said. “Bigotry,” Emmy-award-winning journo Jamil Smith intoned in Rolling Stone, “requires that the enemy be made out to be less than human, and Trump has long made use of blurry lines to criminalize entire groups of people.”

When Trump said our European allies needed to contribute to their own defense and pay their bills, corporate media said they didn’t and that this was unfair. The president is threatening global security by asking Europe to be secure, they insisted. NATO will collapse if it’s paid for, they warned.

When Trump killed the Iranian spymaster responsible for more American military deaths than any other living adversary, corporate media mourned his passing. “He was a war hero,” CBS’s Holly Williams intoned in her authoritative Australian accent. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said he was known as “personally incredibly brave,” and Anderson Cooper said the terrorist reminded him of French World War II leader Charles de Gaulle.

In the eyes of our reporting class, every single thing President Trump did — or said — had to be wrong. It started out entertaining and predictable, but could also be troubling, depressing, and enraging, as when reporters played blind to violent riots, claiming they were entirely peaceful, or when they refused to admit that the border is a human-smuggling and human-victimizing operation entirely run by foreign criminal cartels.
