How bad is the problem of media bias? The answer can be summed up in a few words: President Donald J. Trump. Whether you love him or hate him, there’s no question that Trump gained a huge amount of support for his willingness to criticize the media in harsh and unsparing terms. The media seems baffled by the fact that it’s lost the trust of the American people. It has responded by being extraordinarily defensive and doubling down on histrionic attacks. However, the American system has always depended on a strong and trusted media to hold those in power accountable. Journalist Mollie Hemingway looks at the impressive list of media failure that led us to this unique moment and asks, Is it possible for the media to recover its credibility before it’s too late?

Well written, truthful
I purchased this book through Amazon. It is well written and extremely truthful.
There seems to be a substantial amount of hatred towards Donald Trump coming from the media, and a lot of not true stories.
The real story of the 2016 presidential election
In Trump vs. the Media, Mollie Ziegler Hemingway tells the history of the public’s growing mistrust of the mainstream media, and how Donald Trump took that media on and won the 2016 election. Hemingway’s necessary critiques of the media are sharp, questioning whether a hysterical Chicken Little-esque journalism establishment that lost at the ballot box can be trusted to provide the watchdog services necessary for a democratic republic.
