Trumps Puts Another Nail in the MSM Coffin with NFL’s Help

We all know that President Trump is a buffoon, has low intelligence and is incapable of any strategic thought or planning. The media and the democratic party has beaten him at every turn. The White House’s prior occupant laid out a carefully placed minefield, which has blown up on various Trump personnel and family members. And yet, Trump won the presidency with something carefully resembling an ingenious strategy, which saw him winning in Blue states, formerly believed to be unwinnable by a republican.

There must be something more at play here than meets the eye. Perhaps the President has a lot more going for him than is widely believed. Were this not the case, we’d now be saying President Hillary Clinton. The current NFL brouhaha is a textbook example. There’s no disputing that the dying mainstream media is Trump’s sworn enemy. Therefore, it seems reasonable that Trump will go to any extent necessary to vanquish this foe. Tweeting at daybreak, when most reporters are starting to come to grips with the day’s hangover, or trolling them with deliberate minor factual misstatements, which throws them into a frenzy, he never lets up. Trump is this war’s aggressor and he’s totally gotten into their decision loop.

Fast forward to sports now being an accepted avenue of social protest/justice. A perfect venue for the nation’s CEO to insert himself and to watch the ensuing carnage spew forth. It’s safe to say that Trump’s base and many other Americans are sickened by this turn of events. Be it watching ESPN commentators accuse the President of white supremacy or being forced to endure multi-millionaire football players disrespect their flag/country by kneeling during the national anthem, most average Americans have had it! Sports used to be the one place we could turn to to avoid any reference to politics. But now ESPN has turned into MSNBC with even less gifted commentators.

It’s no secret that the news media are just a small cog in the media conglomerates’ wheel. They’re the ones that also bring you football, virtually every day of the week. For these entities, sports programming is a major cash cow. And what’s happening to this revenue spigot? It’s carefully and deliberately being choked off as a result Trump’s carefully thought out media counterstrike. He’s legitimately incensed by these entitled overgrown adolescents who disrespect the very country that’s done so much for them. But he’s also seized upon an opportunity that he’d be a fool to overlook.He’s called out his base to boycott the NFL. By driving down viewership, he’s hitting the media empires in their wallets. Every lost viewer directly impacts the networks’ bottom line. Drive down the viewership enough and the NFL media contract becomes a major cash drain. And a major threat to their continued existence.

Signs of this are abundant. For the first three weeks of this season, viewership is down over 10 percent. This represents millions in lost ad revenue. The media has boxed themselves into a corner and they don’t even realize it. Wait till game 7 when they’re down 25 percent. Odds are they’ll cry uncle before long and attempt to make their peace with Trump.

The NFL and the MSM should very quickly rethink their strategy. Or, Trump will do to them what Obama did to the coal industry. Just watch.

    Great insights.Media is trapped.

    This makes a lot of sense Kerry. Putin would be proud (from a Chess standpoint).

    … attempt to make their peace with Trump.

    If he is wise, he will demand nothing less than the exposure of the falsehood underlying the entire “racist murdering cops” narrative … up to and including a repudiation of the entire narrative of systemic racism as THE problem holding back people of color.

    A narrative that has instead kept them wandering in a wilderness of despair for 53 years, refusing to consider that liberty and prosperity are just a few steps out of that wilderness and no one can stop them from stepping out.

    I know that I’m hoping for too much …

      “exposure of the falsehood underlying the entire “racist murdering cops” narrative … up to and including a repudiation of the entire narrative of systemic racism as THE problem holding back people of color.”

      That will never happen. It hasn’t happened in any of the individual cases…Trayvon Martin…Michael Brown..etc…

      Instead the most visible and active agents advancing that narrative – the media –
      DOUBLE DOWN and ACTIVELY and WILLFULLY contrive new incidents to compound the tension.

      They’ve operated like this for decades, and they are only stepping up, intensifying, and increasing the frequency of their contrivance and participation in new incidents. It’s good for ratings and it works to advance what’s clearly an agenda that is being directed at some level of these organizations.

      And it is working. The average personn believes it all. Reality doesn’t matter. They control reality. It’s whatever they tell people it is.

    Obama put a noose on the coal industry with his own hands.
    NFL and MSM are digging their hole with shovel they made their own self.
    Trump is merely encouraging their efforts.

  • Mark

    The arrogance of the mainstream media can only be matched by the arrogance of the NFL. It is fitting that they should go down together. Ayn Rand would be smiling.

  • Z-man

    Trump is just a catalyst for a process that had already been started by the anti patriot Kaepernick, and foolishly encouraged by NFL owners and coaches. Trump just echoes the sentiments of the average veteran — nobody sees the issue as starkly as those who have served.

  • John

    Both the anti-trust exemption and non-profit status of the NFL need to be revoked.

  • Bandit

    There is no way back for the NFL – just sayin’

  • Deserttrek

    i gave up on the nfl long ago when they were threatening arizona over mlk day
    the owners and management are welfare queens and politically correct cowards
    without taxpayer funding they would not exist

    No decent person would watch or be associated with the nfl or the nba

    F the all
