Barack Obama likely would not have been elected had the mainstream media been as hard on him has it has been on Donald Trump. Consider the media’s effort to conceal Obama’s relationship with figures like Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright. One author wrote that when media figures were around Obama, they lost their minds and started “behaving in ways that are juvenile and amateurish.” They swoon, he said. A former editor of the New York Times recently admitted that she carries a plastic Obama doll in her purse to help her cope with Trump’s America. These aren’t qualities of an objective, facts-first, truth-seeking media—these are characteristics of unstable children. On today’s radio show, I discuss how the Obama effect still influences the way the media cover the current administration in the White House.
