By Wednesday morning, only a select few media outlets had announced to their readers that President Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, despite the news having been circulating for quite some time.
The story first surfaced in early February, when CBS News carried a report noting that the French news agency AFP had been told that Trump was nominated for the award for on the basis of “his vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS, nuclear Iran and Communist China.”
It appeared again last week, when AFP published another report confirming that “an unidentified American who wants the U.S. leader recognized for ‘his peace through strength ideology’” had indeed nominated the president.
Yet the response from the liberal media has been quiet, to say the least, as noted by The Daily Wire: “The MSM is too busy trying to sell the Trump-is-Russian story and ignoring the wiretapping of Trump Tower.”
In other words, the media have been too busy hammering the president nonstop to serve any actual news to the public. It is no wonder that, according to a recent Investor’s Business Daily poll, 54 percent of the public believe the media “has assumed the role of the opposition party, constantly opposing the president and his policies at every turn.”
The media have willfully chosen to function as a district attorney, the premise being that Trump is the defendant — a guilty one who must be brought to justice. Never mind the fact that Trump is the president, not a criminal, and that it is the media’s job to report the news.
Of course, during the presidency of former President Barack Obama, the opposite occurred — and the media turned into the president’s defense attorney, constantly sheltering him against any and all criticism, no matter how merited.
And so when Obama was nominated for the peace prize, the media celebrated. But now that Trump has been nominated for the same award, mum’s the word.
