Why The Fox News/Facebook Team Ganged Up On Donald Trump

I’m offering up two conservative takes on why the mugging of Donald Trump took place last Thursday night in Cleveland.  One point of view is by author and columnist Diana West.  The other take is by author and talk-show host Michael Savage.

So, Megyn Kelly is suddenly the Little Red Riding Hood victim of that horrible (wolf)man Donald Trump.  Every left-wing media outlet in sight has rushed to her defense following Trump’s comment, given in response to Kelly’s low blows during the recent Republican presidential “debate”:

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her, wherever.”

And Republican honcho Eric Erickson was among the first in line to come to Kelly’s defense by withdrawing Trump’s invitation to speak at a major Republican Red State event, because Trump’s comment was – what?  Marginal?  Questionable?  Okay.  By the way, as Diana writes, this is the same squeaky clean Eric Erickson who once Tweeted about retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter:

[America has lost] “the only goat-fucking child molester to ever serve on the Supreme Court.”

Diana also writes:

Fox News, a slick establishment machine with “conservative” branding, showed itself to be actively hostile to both “true conservative” Cruz and No. 1 Trump, who has connected with voters in an unprecedented way with his vigorous, unapologetic build-the-wall, stop-the-alien-invasion, and save America message.

My question is, why should We, the People, have to hold our breaths wondering what journalist-“moderators” will ask next, either to hone their own axes or draw blood from candidates whom they or their bosses oppose?…

…Megyn Kelly, meanwhile, is surely Fox-America’s Sweetheart. Again, today, I just listened to a past recording of Kelly engaging in really unbelievable trash talk with Howard Stern; I have seen her steamy photo spread in GQ go by on Twitter. It is of cultural note that such acts once upon a distant time would have ruined her news broadcast career, not enhanced it.

What is relevant today, however, is the extent to which they and Erickson and yes, Trump, all reflect the fallen state of our culture — the normalization of crudity, especially sexual crudity, we all, very much including our children, have to live amid. Given that, this doesn’t seem to be the one time to cry foul and be believed. And no time is right to try to short-circuit the political process.

What I sense is a power play — and that strikes me as really obscene.

I agree with Savage and West.  Fox News’ and Facebook’s more than apparent objective is to remove the only two strong build-the-wall anti-immigration candidates from the field of contenders – Trump and Cruz.

THE FOX NEWS/FACEBOOK MISSION:  No border.  No limits on immigration.  Dirt-cheap labor for the Repubs.  More voters and an eventual one-party system for the Democrats.

Whether or not our press corps and broadcast media corps can accomplish their mission remains to be seen.  Aren’t they just something special?

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
