    The mainstream liberal media.


    After decades of boosting leftist candidates, covering up their crimes and scnadals, putting their failures on the back page, and putting all Republican problems in the headlines, the election of Donald J. Trump sounded the death knell for this fifth-column liberal force. Trumps neve takes any attack or misrepresentation lying down, but punches back and calls out the media for exactly who they are from the Bully Pulpit - the first President ever to do so. He leaves them with no alternate channel to clod and cover up his words or slant them in the media's favor, leaving them with no possible reply.

    As a result, more and more people are coming to realize just how biased and unfair they are, and turning to them less and less for information. There usefulness as props for whatever leftist candidate that pops up, is diminishing and will soon end.

    Good riddance.
