Donald Trump, the Media, and the "Razor's" Edge

Roger L. Simon goes into a long song and dance in an effort to explain "the real reason" why most in the media loathe, despise and abominate Donald J. Trump.

Simon thinks it has a lot to do with Trump's plan to rescue the middle class and the media's desire to put the kibosh on that one, thank you very much.

I think there's a far simpler--i.e. an Occam's razor--reason for the derision: the media, which have a leftist default setting (and are mostly leftist to a fault), are programmed to hate Republicans; Donald Trump is (an ostensible, putative) Republican; he also happens to have no filter and often says dumb and/or offensive things as soon as they pop into his head (making him the Sophia Petrillo of American politics).

Ergo, the media hate Trump.
