This post is about a blind spot in media "reporting" and "news". They think Trump's words came out of the bubble of Trump Tower when it is simply a policy position based on standard GOP rhetoric.For example even Larry Wilmore is out there blaming George Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin when it was Right Wing rhetoric (& it's Florida connections) that made it possible for him to do that in the first place.
Now, lets see what the Liberal Media's patsy/scapegoat, Donald Trump (a politician following standard GOP rhetoric the liberal media doesn't expose because of their Iraq connections, etc) has on his statement's about illegal Mexican immigrants... that he OBVIOUSLY - IN AN EASILY TRACEABLE WAY - got from Fox News.
BLACKLASH 2016: THE UNBLACKENING - TRUMP DUMP JULY 2, 2015 - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump doubles down on his offensive comments about Mexican immigrants, despite losing his partnerships with Univision, NBC and Macy's. (7:56)
The specific statement in question is one of facts, real or not, that are touted on a top "news" channel ( you call it news and some people are gonna think it's news... if you don't expose and end it then you are acting like this news source - that controls over 50% of American opinion, doesn't exist);
Is Trump talking about news? Lets look at some articles from Latino Fox News about some stuff we know about ILLEGAL immigrants crossing the border (keep in mind, this is the same channel that vilify Muslim murderers while giving Christian murderers the 'get off free' card);
$2M drug seizure points to Mexican cartels making inroads in Utah, police say
Much speculation, scant evidence for Mexican cartel involvement in Ohio mass slaying
Drug tunnel discovered between Mexico and California has length of 4 football fields
Feds say member of Mexican drug cartel to plead guilty
Mexican cartels take over methamphetamine trade in the Ozarks
THE AMERICAS - Mexican journalist records 2 suspected drug smugglers scaling border fence
Problem seems to be that Donald Trump is over generalizing to a point that America's incompetent media can't handle it anymore.
This is the one that really pisses off the fear mongers...
This gets even weirder as far as media credibility goes. A little review;
Article: The media needs to stop telling this lie about Donald Trump. I’m a Sanders supporter — and value honesty Trump's words on Mexicans have been misconstrued by all sides. This liberal, Puerto Rican professor says enough
It’s time to start cleaning up the mess of misinterpretations about Donald Trump.
Back in June, I first saw Mr. Trump announcing his candidacy for president. What he said about unauthorized immigrants seemed ridiculous so I laughed. I showed the video to friends, and I laughed again. His words were poorly chosen.
But something worse happened. People interpreted Trump’s words in the most awful and offensive ways.
In one of my courses, at the University of Texas at Austin, I asked my students: “What has Donald Trump said that you found most offensive?” One student raised her hand high: “He said that all Mexicans are rapists.” I asked a coworker the same question. He replied: “He said that all Mexican immigrants are rapists.”
I explained that Trump said no such thing. This is what Trump said:
“When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. […] When Mexico sends its people they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you; they’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting.”
You might well dislike Trump’s words. I did. But let’s not make it worse. He did not say that all Mexicans are rapists. Yet that’s what many commentators did. For example, Politico misquoted Trump by omitting his phrase about “good people.” They said he was “demonizing Mexicans as rapists.” They argued that Mexicans do not really commit more rapes in the U.S. than whites. But that’s not what Trump claimed.
Similarly, other news sources misrepresented his words in offensive ways:

If the above article is not convincing enough to stop blaming Trump for standard right wing views that are suppose to be taken care of with INFORMATION AND NEWS (something the liberal media does, sometimes, and then shuts up in fear, example: Chris Hayes)... then here are some more right wing article showing this is standard "news" (also, Liberals, Hannity may have been right on this! Sucks huh?)

Ann Coulter: Donald Trump: Still Right About Mexican Rapists
Slate: Bill O Reilly (Fox News Host) Defends Trump
It's hard to believe anyone could be fooled by Donald Trump's I'm-not-saying-all-Mexicans-are-disease-ridden–rapists-but act. But Bill O'Reilly rallied and launched a defense of Trump on his Monday night show, spinning Trump's rhetoric in ingenious ways. Turns out that when Trump said of Mexican immigrants, “They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists,” he actually meant that they are rapevictims.
“Many migrant women are sexually molested, and that is the rape situation that Donald Trump mentioned,” O'Reilly explained. In short: It's not rapists who threaten our country's integrity; it's their victims.
One more thing from the video;
Washington (CNN) – After Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney lost the Latino vote by more than 40% in 2012, the Republican Party has started an effort to rebrand itself to be more attractive to the growing demographic.
But that's not going to be easy, according to the results of a new poll released Friday, and will require the Republican Party to turn back the a belief among Latinos that the party doesn't care about them.
Half of Hispanics identify with the Democratic Party, according to the Public Religion Research Institute poll, compared to the 15% who identify with the GOP.
But the problem is more than just party identification, says the survey. Forty-three percent of Hispanics identified that the phrase "cares about people like you" more appropriately describes the Democratic Party, while 12% say the same for the GOP.
Also an issue for the GOP: their favorability rating with Hispanic voters has dramatically declined since George W. Bush won re-election in 2004 with 44% of the Hispanic vote.
After Bush's re-election, nearly half of Hispanics reported having a favorable view of the GOP. In nine years, that number has split in half, with 24% of Hispanics reporting in the most recent PRRI poll that they had a positive view of the GOP, while 65% said they have an unfavorable view of the party.
"I think the poll clearly shows that Republicans have both a brand issue and an issue problem," said Robert P. Jones, head of PRRI. "I think both of those things are going to have to get addressed to make progress connecting with Hispanics in America."
Months after November 2012's presidential election, the Republican National Committee unveiled a lengthy report on what the party needed to do if it were to dispatch its image as "'narrow minded,' 'out of touch,' and 'Stuffy old men,'" said RNC chairman Reince Priebus.
"Public perception of the Party is at record lows," said the RNC report. "Many minorities wrongly think that Republicans do not like them or want them in the country. When someone rolls their eyes at us, they are not likely to open their ears to us."
This month, in an open letter to his party that was published by the National Review, Priebus reiterated his plea to reach out to Hispanic voters.
"If you're not engaging with the Hispanic community, you better get to work," reads the letter. "Hispanics deserve candidates and a party that will fight for their vote. In working to earn Hispanics' trust, though, Republicans have to remember that it's not just about what we say, but how we say it."
Romney won only 27% of Latino voters – a lower percentage than the last two GOP presidential candidates. Many pointed to Romney's hardline stance on immigration, including his endorsement of a policy of "self-deportation," as a reason.
Trump is getting EXACTLY the percentages the GOP ALWAYS gets with Latinos. Nothing has changed. I'm sure he can pick up another 5-7% easy to get to Romney's monumental 27% with Latinos. The point is that Trump is saying what the GOP Establishment's - WELL TRAINED - base expects.
FLASHBACK (Fox News Demonizing Immigrants)
National Hispanic Heritage Month - Fox News reports from the international foods aisle and presents flattering characterizations of Hispanic kids. (03:57) :
MEXICO IS AN ENEMY! THAT EXPLAINS ALL THE CROSS-BORDER SHENANIGANS!
ACCORDING TO FOX NEWS'S THOROUGH REPORTING, ILLEGALS COST THE SAME AMOUNT AS SHUTTING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT FOR TWO DAYS DOES!
ON TOP OF THAT, ALL THE MURDERS IN THE US SEEM TO BE CAUSED BY HISPANICS (ACCORDING TO FOX NEWS'S REPORTING)!
BUT DURING HISPANIC MONTH THEY SOMETHING NICE ABOUT A HISPANIC COMPANY FROM A SUPERMARKET AISLE...
Upto 3 YEARS AGO, WHEN HISPANIC VOTES WEREN'T NEEDED, HISPANIC KIDS WERE BEING DEMONIZED (So this Is What The Gop Base Believes)...
Children Of The Corn Trailer;
People in the media are talking about what Trump said about Mexicans like it came out of thin air when in reality it's been the GOP's talking point for decades. In fact, we just came down from an incident where Obama gave the SAME PERCENTAGE of illegal Latino immigrants amnesty as did BOTH Bush & Ronald Reagan before him (he was following tradition, he doesn't like to rock the boat). In response, the GOP tried to impeach Obama. Is that not extreme? Has everyone forgotten the rhetoric during that time? Has everyone forgotten about the stories Fox News keeps running about Mexican rapists? If you want Donald Trump, a person running for President of the PEOPLE of the United States, and you DON'T want him to listen to Fox News which serves 50+% of the population... I have to wonder you haven't smashed them yet? They seem to be doing just fine.
Fortunately, a little look at the cover ups the media has been involved in from the Iraq Oil War to Bernie Sanders and beyond (& Ron Paul as well), makes it clear that they no longer function as news organizations. They function as little echo chambers serving their own audience with falsehoods that serve their feelings and pocket book.
So Trump hear's about such stories and he has such an impression by a major news organization. Stop acting like this came out of the blue and that EVERYONE in the media isn't responsible for these views becoming the norm of such a large segment of the population. Who do you think Politicians cater to? The American People. The same people the GOP rigged their districts for. The same people for whom they provide news service like a cult but permitted by the Government ... (not Obama, poor guy is just trying to get out of this mess alive. I think the reason he won in 2008 was that his gut reaction to Hillary's lies was to fight back fearlessly). This government is owned by the Bush's and the Clinton's (Chris Mathews admitted this on some election day, forget which one) and these two establishments cater to the ones who give them the most money. Their records prove this.
