The so-called mainstream media isn’t even trying to hide its hatred of Donald Trump.
Outlets like CNN harp on every single word he says in hopes of generating a scandal.
But their obsession with one story about Trump just completely shattered their credibility.
Hurricane Dorian caused major devastation in the Caribbean.
The Category 5 storm caused incalculable amounts of property damage and killed at least 43 people in the Bahamas.
However, instead of covering the hurricane, CNN and other liberal media outlets thought it was deeply important to focus on Donald Trump.
Trump at one point had mentioned that Dorian might hit Alabama, but updated hurricane forecasts showed the storm was going north instead of westward.
During an address to the American people, Trump stood before an old map that had a storm pattern drawn in sharpie over Alabama.
CNN and other outlets found this deeply despairing.
They insisted Trump “lied” about the storm potentially hitting Alabama for some nefarious reason.
But CNN’s own coverage showed that early storm projections had Alabama as a potential target:
CNN told Alabama to “be on the lookout” for Dorian on 8/28.
“There are many states that are under threat right now.”

Also, the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) confirmed that Alabama was indeed a potential target of Dorian in early models.
Despite this information, CNN and other so-called mainstream media outlets attacked Trump like a rabid dog.
Ever since 2016, they’ve been looking for the magic bullet to have Trump impeached, but they’ve only beclowned themselves in the process.
In their eyes, providing extended coverage over a map with sharpie on it would finally get Trump removed from office.
CNN claims to be a non-partisan organization, but it’s impossible to take them seriously when they run absurd chyrons like:

If CNN didn’t already embarrass itself enough, they made a gaffe far greater than Trump standing in front of an old map.
The “most trusted name in news” apparently doesn’t know the difference between Alabama and Mississippi:

Episodes like this are precisely why mainstream media is slowly dying.
Their pursuit of Trump’s scalp has caused them to blow themselves up, and it’s reflected in the ratings.
CNN without fail gets trounced by Fox News and loses to the openly liberal MSNBC.
CNN has even lost ratings battles against Nickelodeon re-runs.
This is what it looks like when a news organization is in the throes of death.
CNN and other liberal news sources went from the Russiagate hoax to the Sharpiegate hoax.
Host Van Jones was caught on candid camera admitting Russiagate was a big “nothing-burger.”
One wonders if they’re also internally acknowledging how pathetic their coverage of Trump and Hurricane Dorian has been.
The coverage leading up to 2020 is only going to get worse.
And if Trump wins again, there’s no telling what depths they’ll sink to scrape together anti-Trump news to sate their hate-filled base.
