HA! TFW Erick Erickson uses Brian Stelter’s own tweet to DRAG him for claiming Trump has damaged ‘media literacy’
Brian Stelter certainly spends a good deal of time whining about how mean Trump is to the media. Perhaps if the media stopped making it so easy for Trump to make fun of them he would stop, but then whatever would they write (whine) about?
Maybe Brian missed it, but the majority of their coverage is either complaining about how unfair Trump is to them or writing unfair crap about Trump. It’s a vicious cycle the media have created themselves.
For example, look at this:
Trump is proud of the damage he's done to media literacy: "I think that one of the most important things that I've done, especially for the public, is explain that a lot of the news is indeed fake." https://t.co/OxLgyKkaL7 pic.twitter.com/Y4or8R0iYT

Trump is right. Perhaps the best thing he has done as president (other than cutting our taxes) is showing us all how absolutely gross and biased most of the traditional media really are.
Erick Erickson made a far better point of this than we can:
I think the bigger and more important thing Trump has done has been to allow a lot of the political press to be more comfortable revealing their own partisanship and that has challenged the press’s credibility more than the President has exposed fake news. https://t.co/9QZ7Px7d38

See? The media have started seeing themselves as heroes fighting the president versus journalists reporting the news.
It’s pathetic if you think about it.
Been saying this for a while. He makes them show who they are, and it ain't pretty.

Pretty damn homely, yup.
It's the media's mistakes, though, that make the people trust them, amirite Tater?

Tater. That never gets old.
Media Literacy. That is hysterical!

Talk about an oxymoron.
I'm independent. No side should be proud and this appears to be a war. The vast majority of media aside from Fox is trying daily to take down a POTUS. Trump in turn fights. 93% of coverage is negative. Historic & evidence of a hard liberal bias. There is a lot of fake news.

What he said.
And the MSM just keep reporting his words verbatim, so the MSM is at fault for amplifing his lies endlessly

The MSM all but got Trump elected … no wonder they’re so cranky.
