Trump looks most like Trump

Two things like the American President Donald Trump particularly good in the White house. For one, he like the many chandeliers, and on the other he is pleased with how many of the big TV he is everywhere in the building has to install. He is also proud of its sophisticated System to jump to several screens between the programs back and forth, because even though Fox News is his favorite channel, he wants to know sometimes what's on the other channels. It might, for example, to him.

So it is in a just published book of the former Trump employee, Cliff Sims, the, was not allowed to stay like so many of the Trump staff for a long time. The turnover of personnel is in the White house under the current President is higher than ever before, has to be Good: The Public is always informed of what is happening in the Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D. C., house, number 1600, behind closed doors, as many of those who are thrown out immediately issue a book about the time they moved in trump's Orbit.

The Extreme is to grow

The punch line of this story is that Trump according to the "Washington Post" after entering the White house as the First the very small TV in the dining room by a large flat-screen to replace, because we know that he spends large parts of the day in front of the TV. In his official schedules in the "Executive Time". Donald Trump is the TV President, and that has an impact on the television in America.

first and foremost, it leads to a polarisation, as they are so extremely comfortable in any other country. The channel Fox News was very conservative, and MSNBC has always been liberal, but since Trumps electoral victory in 2016, the divide is starker than ever. MSNBC tends to lean significantly to the left, but is more balanced than Fox, of the moderators. The morning show on MSNBC hosted by Joe Scarborough, a former Republican Congressman. Nicolle Wallace, who was under the Republican President George W. Bush's communications Director in the White house, runs every working day from 16 o'clock to the political show "Deadline: White House". That would be Fox News is unthinkable.

A propaganda channel

Fox News has developed with very few exceptions, to a pure propaganda channel. It takes some bizarre forms that other journalists just make fun of it. Recently, it managed to Trump the Congress, the nearly six-billion dollars for his wall on the border to Mexico be squeezed out, although he had put parts of the management apparatus 35 days.

Finally, he was small and opened the administrations, although he had not received a penny for the wall. He did, because the Democrat Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the house of representatives, it would not have allowed him otherwise, his big state of the Union speech before both chambers of Congress. This symbolic appearance, the last week took place, and wanted to let Trump take.

Even in conservative circles, the view that Pelosi had added to the President a sensitive defeat prevailed. The very conservative and very radical commentator Ann Coulter was, Trump is the biggest wimp that ever served as President" was".

Only on Fox News was a different matter. The presenter Sean Hannity was full of praise for Trump. "The President has shown leadership," he said in his broadcast about the man who had just shown a distinct weakness, "he has risen above the swamp!" You need to know to Hannity praises, without exception, everything Trump is doing as outstanding. If Trump would appoint a horse to the Supreme Court, it would be for Sean Hannity the opportunity to praise the extraordinary wisdom of the President.

a Lot of admiration in the reporting

It is hard to say whether he's doing this out of Conviction or out of calculation, because it ensures him a large audience. With his radio show, the week runs from 15 to 18 p.m. East coast time, he reaches weekly approximately 13.5 million Americans. On Twitter, he has 3.5 million Followers. His Show on Fox News more than three million people tune in nightly. So he deserves according to the "New York Times" about 36 million dollars in the year. Or So Hannity is the agent of a larger Whole.

His Fox colleague Jeanine Pirro said on the same evening about Trump, who had just fallen: "He has not given in. He has made a tactical decision." Pirro says something so full of admiration. While Hannity might as well be an ideologue, as a man outside of any morality, acts Pirro, as you mean this is all completely serious, what you probably do also. What is Fox News doing that is a permanent undermining of the truth. It is the creation of a parallel universe in which everything is hidden, what does not fit to the pure message, and to pure doctrine.

No political intermarriage

Professor Shanto Iyengar has been doing research for decades on the relationship between media and politics, since 1998, at the University of Stanford. For him, the alignment of TV channels like Fox, or, to a lesser extent, MSNBC, the expression of an ever-deeper division in the country. "Since the election of George Bush in the year 2000, the polarization has become extreme. With Trump, it has once again reinforced," he said. "Democrats and Republicans are two tribes facing each other irreconcilably."

the social structure of the country is affected. According to a study by Iyengar's Team, 86 percent of all married couples support the same party, and the trend is rising. Republicans are getting married inside, no Democrats, more Democrats, no Republicans. Currently his Team sits in a new study, the divorce will be examined. "We collect the data, but I have a strong suspicion that we will see that divorces where the partners do not support the same party, are on the increase."

Defensive value systems

This is due to the fact that the support of a party is now linked to a complete value system. Who with the Republicans sympathized, in General, against the right to abortion, against immigration, against Gay rights, against a far-reaching intervention of the state and does not believe in climate change. Democrats are the opposing positions represented. Of course there are exceptions, but this is the rough lines. What could you put in this development? Iyengar says: "I am now very optimistic that we can find in this country a path to greater harmony."

near the conclusion of the sun would be that this division is reflected in the media exactly. Each page looks at only their own Websites, their own Newspapers reads, your own television channel is switched on – so in their own world and lives. In an impressive study, which appeared recently under the title "Network Propaganda", three scientists from the University of Harvard to a very different conclusion. Yochai Benkler, Robert Fari and Hal Roberts say on the basis of data analyses, that the American media were in the right and left, but only in a very right and the Rest.

I'm inclined to say that these extreme opposites discharged sometime in the violence.Shanto Iyengar, a Professor at the University of Stanford

evaluated by The researchers according to information from millions of Tweets, Facebook posts, and Online Stories and come to the view that the Problem lies with the political networks on the outer right edge. Liberal and moderate media users are interested in facts, very conservative use of the Media to take more misinformation, half-truths and lies.

The sun to a repetitive process: On the extreme right-wing sites such as Breitbart, Infowars, truth feed, Zero Hedge and Gateway Pundit obscure stories emerged that defame the political opponent. These pages is based do not change, as would the stories of journalistic Standards. Often, they are invented. Crucial to the second step: The stories are picked up in other media, which are still considered to be somewhat of a journalistic – like Fox News. In order to be legitimized.

Where is all this leading to? "I don't want to shock you," said Professor Iyengar, "but I'm inclined to say that these extreme opposites discharged sometime in the violence. Some Madman will go on a campaign event and shoot other people. We have reached this level now." It should come to this, you know at Fox News to report as it is.
