First off TV Week with the exception of Fox News, NOBODY is pandering to BOTH sides. That’s why we’ve had 95% negative coverage of our current President. Secondly, the core tenets of journalism crumbled a long time ago but they completely disintegrated during the 8 years of President Obama. The media were gobsmacked by his election. And nobody seemed to care as his administration weaponized the IRS, DOJ and FBI. As someone pointed out, what would the media’s reaction be if Jeff Sessions had said “I’m the President’s “wing man.” (As Eric Holder did of Obama).
