Conservative Pundit Civil War on Donald Trump – Media Matters Graphic

Fox News stars — Megyn Kelly excluded — lavish attention on Trump and treat him with kid gloves, turning off many conservatives

Conservative Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has received far less media coverage than Donald Trump. Many conservatives are troubled by the adoring coverage that Trump has received from "conservative" journalists and the influential Fox News.

TED SLIGHTED: Conservative Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has received far less media coverage than Donald Trump in the GOP race. Many conservatives are troubled by the adoring coverage that Trump has received from “conservative” journalists and the influential Fox News. Trump’s decidedly anti-conservative past pro-“gay” advocacy has barely been covered by either the “mainstream” or conservative media.

Folks, to say this is an odd election season might be the political understatement of the century. I saw this graphic on the left-wing Media Matters site, which is running articles about how weird it is that conservatives are complaining about “conservative media” (e.g, Fox News and Rush Limbaugh) going too easy on GOP front-runner Donald Trump. I have followed this election closely, and I too am appalled at the “conservative” media’s sycophantic treatment of Trump. (I have my favorite, but Americans For Truth does not endorse candidates–and in interviews I have criticized them all on some point or another.) I believe that Republican voters and the American public in general have been cheated by media coverage that has shown incredible deference to “The Donald” (with some key exceptions, like Wisconsin radio host Charles Sykes’ tough interview of Trump).

Seasoned pro-family observers will note that while Trump’s past support of abortion-on-demand (including “partial-birth abortions”) has been well-covered by the media, his radically pro-homosexual positions as a New York businessman have not. [See Randy Thomasson’s and SaveCalifornia.com’s “Presidential Scorecare on the Natural Family” comparing the remaining three GOP candidates’ records HERE.] In fact, in a 2000 interview with the homosexual Advocate magazine, Trump came out for adding homosexuality to the Civil Rights Act, but this has received barely any serious media coverage.

Note how many Fox News hosts and “contributors” (paid commentators like Laura Ingraham) are in the Trump camp. It has gotten to the point where I cut back watching Fox News because of biased “Trump cheerleaders” like Eric Bolling, Greta Van Susteren and Sean Hannity (whose wimpy Trump interviews are criticized on the (#NeverTrump) Red State site HERE). I don’t normally pass on Media Matters material, but this graphic is pretty accurate in identifying the Trumpsters versus the Anti-Trumps. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org
