The ‘Silent Majority’ Is Roaring For Trump, But the Media Ignores Them Completely – By Ellie Bufkin (Townhall) / Aug 11 2020
If one were to believe wholeheartedly in the America portrayed by social media and cable news, they would think that President Trump is loathed by most of the country and Joe Biden is looking at guaranteed victory in November.
News outlets have focused heavily on stories of civil unrest, protests, and looting in the past few months, framing a nation on the precipice of total fracture. Stories flood front pages about major cities voting to defund their own police department, even as murders and other violent crimes spike.
Each day, President Trump’s words to the press and on social media are dissected and found wanting by his detractors. A daily snapshot of “trending topics” on Twitter shows a nation disgusted with their leader and the waning number of people who support him.
