Media Of Futures Past

The future is behind them now:
Byers, who has long reported on and analyzed the media, explained that many in the news industry are trying to bridge the gap that exists between the press and “conservatives that don’t trust the media.”

“Maybe, you can’t,” Byers said. “They’re just not paying attention to it because they don’t trust us.”

Byers then diagnosed the problem with the media and explained why exactly it is that conservatives don’t trust the mainstream press.

“On occasion, more than the media would probably like to admit, we have not told the story of conservative Americans — disenfranchised Americans — who believe that they are losing their country,” Byers explained. “The story we have largely been telling is a story that is more or less in step with the arc of history as defined by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

“That doesn’t mean we favor them to win,” the reporter added. “It just means that that sort of vision of a progressive future — a global future — and that is not one that resonates with so many conservative American voters.”
Even unintentional truth hurts, doesn't it?
