The media who cried wolf

For more than two years for Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media, it was all about Russia. But when that effort to derail Trump's presidency failed miserably, they began pounding on two other "R" words: Racism and recession.

"I think when it comes to the economy, people know when the economy's in good shape or bad," suggests Rich Noyes, director of research at the Media Research Center. "They're living in the economy. They know what the prices are at the store. They know if they have a job or not. They know if they're getting wages increases or not. They know if their 401K is going up or not. So they know the story of the economy; they don't need the media to tell them. Maybe it will make them nervous for a little while, but when they realize the economy isn't going down the tubes … they'll again lose more confidence in the media."

As for the alleged racism, Noyes advises the left to find a new story. 

"They would have a lot more impact if they were complaining about Trump if they hadn't already complained about Mitt Romney and George W. Bush and George Bush Senior and Ronald Reagan, and basically every other Republican that's come down the pike," the researcher says. "For the last 30 years, they've made the same charge, so they seem a little bit like the boy who cried wolf on this."
