POLL: Mainstream Media using apocalypse hyperbole to extremes

The mainstream media, with every move President Donald Trump makes, with every statement he gives, with every Tweet he sends out, acts like it’s the end of the world.

You want proof? All you have to do is go back to election night to see what liberal analysts were saying about Trump’s win.

“You have people putting children to bed tonight, and they are afraid of breakfast,” Van Jones said on CNN.

And on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow stated, “You’re not having a terrible dream. You’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell. This is your life now. This is us. This is our country.”

The hyperbole has only ramped up since then, and Dan Gainor with the Media Research Center doesn’t know how much further it can really go.

“The left has called Trump Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and a fascist in so many different ways and forms,” Gainor explained. “What’s next?”

So why do they do this? Gainor says in a crowded media universe, the mainstream media wants to stand out and keep ratings strong, but it's turning some people off.

“The use of hyperbole is so beyond belief that they are even being taken to task by their own side. That’s where we are now,” Gainor stated.

But he also says that you shouldn't expect it to end anytime soon.
