Nobody reads Time magazine anymore, nor Newsweek, nor US News and World report,
the only thing that lasts is traditional family and thousands of year old
traditions from the Bible about what is good and what is bad. Perhaps the
heavens above have raised up Mr. Trump to attack CBS, NBC and ABC for ignoring
miracles and hope and light and traditional family for the last 50 years.
Alma 29:1 speaks of the "trump of God."
He'll fit right in at the Atlantic. No one reads it, except liberals.
I'm curious if they even have a subscription base. He has some
exaggerated connection to Trump that's what they're buying... They
will be completely ignored otherwise.Good for him, he got the
attention, which is all they want anyway.
I hope this doesn't mean Coppins is now going to spend the next 4 - 8 years
of his life criticizing and creating doubt and lack of faith in our newly
elected President.... Somehow, that doesn't seem like a very worthy
endeavor for a BYU graduate... it just doesn't sound right, somehow....
He will fit right in. The Atlantic went from a mild conservative lean to a deep
one during the Obama years, claiming that the country was leaning further left.
We now know that Obama's years gave conservatives a huge increase in state
houses, and state legislatures.
Having also been in journalism at BYU I'm happy for McKay Coppins. BYU
journalism majors when I was there were nearly all liberals. We had a moderate
editor who was from Las Vegas and the professor was also moderate. McKay Coppins
appears to be a Massachusetts liberal and will fit in with the liberal Atlantic
@ImpartialPlease make that the next 8 years.😁
A most wonderful Christmas present came early this year on November 8th. My
worst fears of Hillary winning were overcome with joy as Donald Trump won the
electoral battle as our new President-elect! Yes, Virginia, there is
a God in Heaven. (not the exact quote, but I changed to fit the circumstances!)
So the guy who was spectacularly wrong about Donald Trump's campaign from
start to finish is now the guy whom the Media want to cover him?If
that doesn't illustrate the complete cluelessness of the Main Stream Media
about the Election of 2016 in a single article, then I don't know what
would.It's official: The Media have become so insulated, so
inward-looking, so biased that they are officially beyond parody. You
can't make stuff like this up.Between this and the collective
Leftist Meltdown, the next four -- nay eight -- years are going to be
AWESOME.Oh, and Merry Christmas to all.
Good article McKay. Please watch and report on Trump like a hawk and don't
be intimidated by his bully pulpit or his fanatic supporters. Donald is alot
like a snake in the grass.
The journalism "bubble" is bursting, evidenced by Trump's election.
It will be interesting to see if Trump's obsession with proving a specific
journalist wrong persists. This appears to be the main draw in Coppins'
promotion.While I wish Coppins success in his career, my sense is
Trump will soon be absorbed with far bigger issues, such as China's public
pronouncement yesterday that they're preparing for a trade war with the
United States.Then again, Trump's a smart guy who doesn't
need daily intelligence briefings, so maybe Coppins will provide the US with an
ongoing, interactive prism into what's going on with the 45th president.
@ Utah Girl:Except for the last line, you described Barack Obama to
Utah girlI've said it once and I'll say it again. Check out
the bottom of your crystal ball. You will find out it reads "made in
China". Simply a cheap imitation of the real thing if you get my meaning.
What a sad story. This guy is selected for being wrong. This illustrates
everything wrong with our country.
With Mr Coppins extraordinary insight he's a natural to join the major news
sources. I have a funny feeling that the "Daily Dread" or simply put
the everyday flood of ultra-negative news articles informing all of us how
horrible life in America will be come January 20th, Mr Trump may be exactly
what America needs. When the bar has been set so low how can the guy not score
some major sucesses, just by not declaring war against the rest of the world,
the morning of the 21st?I'm ready for more substance and less style,
after 8 years of a White House that cared nothing what the citizens think nor is
willing to address their concerns. Until just now I never wondered if my
("garbage with no credibility") garbage had credibility or not. Exactly
how do you tell? Mr Trumps rough edge are pretty rough, more thuggery than
bitingly creative. This going to take some getting used to.
Well, just another poor misguided soul who thought that hillary would win!
I'm really pretty darned happy to see Trump win this election, because now
we can begin cleaning up the terrible mess obammy has left behind. Yes, there
are always those detractors, but heck, they already have been wrong by
'knowing' who was supposed to win, but didn't. And so, they will
be wrong once again, and their depression deepens whilst our optimism only grows
with each passing success, of PRESIDENT Trump. I suffered terribly under
obammy for 8 long miserable years, but I weathered the terrible storm, and now
the Sun shines brightly, and now, it is their turn to know how I felt for lo
those 8 long years. However, I took it like a Man, and didn't complain,
cry, whine, whimper or groan, I just went through my life every day and ignored
that fake, awful man who only thought he was a 'President', and now,
he is GONE, and we are blessed to have a real Man filling that powerful
position, so now I can smile, and know that we finally have someone who not only
will, but can, do the job................RIGHT!!!
I'm not sure why people are so hard on the media about the Trump coverage.
He would not have won without the press coverage, good or bad. Coppins and
others called out Trump and that's what gave Trump momentum. Then when he
wins, we sit back and say how wrong they were. Doesn't really make sense.
The entire thesis of this story is absurd. Make that very absurd. This guy was
hired only because he's anti-Trump and that is what the media feeds on.
@christoph - Brigham City, UT"Can't people change? Why not cheer
people on with their changing for the better."Trump is not going
to change. He's going to preen, posture, and swagger before the entire
world. He will have no idea what he's doing. Trump lives for cheers and
adulation. Once the cheering stops, we will have an angry madman on our hands. I
see the US military staging a coup and forcibly removing Trump from this life.
I fail to understand why this guy "...is a man in high demand."He, along with the rest of the media, were spectacularly wrong about this
election and all of sudden he's the go-to-guy on the President Elect?What am I missing here?Also we know he doesn't like
Trump and Trump doesn't like him. What could I possibly glean from his
reporting on the President knowing this extreme bias?
I have nothing against Coppins, but this whole story is illustrative of why the
liberal media is so wrong so often - they elevate and promote those who are
wrong. Even though you may be completely bonkers, if you say what liberals want
to hear, your stock soars. For most everyone else, being wrong is
career limiting, definitively not sought after. But for liberals it seems to be
a badge of honor. No wonder they were universally shocked on election night.
Coppins wrong months ago to speak of Mr. Trumps alleged, yes alleged bad
behaviour, of which there is little proof to convict, and Mr. Coppins said some
bad things that I won't describe, which this newspaper printed. How does
Mr. Coppins know that someone hasn't repented? Why not assume someone has
turned the corner for the better? Mr. Trump has better tone now then last
spring. Same with Harry Reid who criticized Mr. Romney recently for changing
positions on Trump from spring until now, why can't Mr. Reid see that
maybe Mr. Trump is a better person today than 6 months ago. Can't people
change? Why not cheer people on with their changing for the better.
If I was getting blamed for Trump's running, I'd be hiding for the
next 4 years.
The press is still trying to figure out what happened. They refuse to admit that
the people are tired of politicians and their broken promises.
