Trump: “I Don’t Like Using Social Media, But…”

Given the frequency with which President Trump tweets, one could be forgiven for thinking he’s a social media addict.

The reality, according to Trump himself, is that he doesn’t particularly like social media, but finds himself compelled to make extensive use of it.

Trump’s said in the past that he appreciates how platforms like Twitter enable him to reach directly to average Americans without going through the gatekeepers of the mainstream media.

In a New Year’s Eve post, the president further clarified:

I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair “press,” now often referred to as Fake News Media. Phony and non-existent “sources” are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!

Love him or hate him, what Trump said is absolutely true.

Part of its bias, a malicious effort to smear candidates and politicians that particular news outlets might not like. The notion of objective news is a farce, since all human beings have positions and biases that will inevitably come out in some way.

The other part is that the incredibly rapid news cycle that dominates the Internet era means even the most “trustworthy” media outlets are often running with stories based off little more than rumors in order to beat their competition to the punch.
