Collusive Serial Mendacity By All The Media

Editorials Against Trump have been burning up presses since the Never Trumpers came out with the infamous National Review feature issue "Against Trump." Since then there has been issue after issue containing editorials in the "Against Trump" mode. All have few or no citations or good examples to support their weak allegations. They mostly cite his instances of puffery or insignificant exaggeration, such as he claimed the "most electoral votes of any Republican President since Reagan." At which time Trump was corrected and stood corrected. Unlike Trump, these Anti-Trump editorials are filled with innuendo, emotional vitriol and unsupported accusations. Every side of the media has put Trump in their sights from the usual suspects on the left, the NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC and all the little NBCs, ABC, CBS, to the Wall Street Journal to Bernie Goldberg and Shepard Smith on Fox News. All of these have editorialized against Trump in the same, lame fashion, mostly unsupported and anger based. 
It would seem to one who has followed Trump, who didn't care for him much as a celebrity, but was persuaded by his candidacy and his well thought-out Presidential Website, that he, especial as a political outsider, was just what America needed. This was especially true against the BIGGEST, MOST OUTLANDISH LIAR this side of Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton.
Theses "News" insiders are protesting far too much about Trump, without substantiation.
What are they covering up? 
Here in this LA Times editorial, as with the others, their own mendacity and big government political agenda is exposed in their own words.  m/r

Our Dishonest President

The Media's Editorial Agenda Against Trump
It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a “catastrophe.”
Still, nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck. Like millions of other Americans, we clung to a slim hope that the new president would turn out to be all noise and bluster, or that the people around him in the White House would act as a check on his worst instincts, or that he would be sobered and transformed by the awesome responsibilities of office.
Instead, seventy-some days in — and with about 1,400 to go before his term is completed — it is increasingly clear that those hopes were misplaced.
In a matter of weeks, President Trump has taken dozens of real-life steps that, if they are not reversed, will rip families apart, foul rivers and pollute the air, intensify the calamitous effects of climate change and profoundly weaken the system of American public education for all.
