“No foreign enemy, no terror group, no native criminal gang suffers the daily beating that Trump does.”
If you’ve been paying attention, you already know the media coverage of Trump is a daily drum beat of negativity and undue scrutiny unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
The media may not be crazy about Hillary Clinton, but they’re on a special mission to make sure Donald Trump never sees the inside of the Oval Office.
The New York Post’s Michael Goodwin made this the subject of his most recent column:
American journalism is collapsing before our eyes
Donald Trump may or may not fix his campaign, and Hillary Clinton may or may not become the first female president. But something else happening before our eyes is almost as important: the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.
The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House. They are working hand in hand with what was considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.
The shameful display of naked partisanship by the elite media is unlike anything seen in modern America.
The largest broadcast networks — CBS, NBC and ABC — and major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post have jettisoned all pretense of fair play. Their fierce determination to keep Trump out of the Oval Office has no precedent.
Indeed, no foreign enemy, no terror group, no native criminal gang suffers the daily beating that Trump does. The mad mullahs of Iran, who call America the Great Satan and vow to wipe Israel off the map, are treated gently by comparison.
By torching its remaining credibility in service of Clinton, the mainstream media’s reputations will likely never recover, nor will the standards. No future producer, editor, reporter or anchor can be expected to meet a test of fairness when that standard has been trashed in such willful and blatant fashion.

Goodwin appeared on FOX News on Monday to discuss the matter:
As usual, NewsBusters has done a great job documenting instances of media bias against Trump. God only knows how they keep up with all of it.
This is actually one of the things that makes it very easy for me to support Trump. If he is elected, everyone in the media will become journalists again overnight. Trump’s every word and plan will be questioned, challenged and scrutinized, which is the way it should be.
Perhaps part of the reason so many in media despise Trump is because they know if he is president, they will be forced to do their jobs again, instead of partying with celebrities at the White House.
Conversely, if Hillary wins nothing has to change. The media can go on as the White House PR Department. Ignoring every scandal, dismissing every concern and championing every new initiative.
