  2. Adriana Cohen: President's successes trump biased mediaRead the original story w/Photo

    22 hrs ago | Boston Herald

    I have to wonder: Are left-leaning outlets trying to manufacture negative political narratives to smear President Trump's image? Or is the wall-to-wall TV coverage serving to detract from the president's many successes - including job creation - since he took office? What we do know is that throughout his two terms in office, President Obama's administration got very different treatment. Did mainstream media lambaste Obama for cozying up to Raul Castro last year? Did they attack him for attending a baseball game with a serial human rights violator who subjected dissidents to torture? Predictably, when Dems cozy up to dictators or other questionable characters, lefty media either looks the other way or it finds a way to applaud them.
