Every story you will get from the Media about Donald Trump

Here's the format, just plug in the item du jour:
“Oh, I’m so concerned that Trump did {thing}, he is offending {SJW List Of Special Topic Folks} and damaging relationships with {Persons Du Jour}. I really hope he isn’t that {dumb | naive | uneducated | mean | incompetent | {insert other insult}}. How can we help him avoid offending {class list} again? Perhaps by {doing our agenda here}? He really doesn’t ‘get it’ about {tradition | OUR prior precedent | Progressive Norms} does he? Who can help him?”
It's Concern Trolling disguised as journalism, and it doesn't work anymore:
In large part, especially on CNN and MSNBC and even to some extent on Fox, they have adopted the role of Concern Troll In Chief, and frankly, my ‘concern’ is all worn out.
See, they have forgotten about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. When one is worried about losing the house, not having a job for a year, how to pay back a $1/4 Million School Loan while working at Starbucks as a Barista with your Advanced SJW Degree, watching your sons and daughters go off to Iraq again perhaps to die, or just struggling to speak Spanish at the store so you can buy necessities (NOT hyperbole – I’ve done it twice in the last two weeks as the staff were all native Spanish speakers…); under those circumstances it just doesn’t make a God Damn Difference who’s phone call The Donald takes.
Basically, Dear Professional Concern Trolls: “Frankly, my Dear Troll, I just don’t give a damn.”
That sounds about right.  Until the Media rebuilds some trust with most of the country, this is going to be wildly ineffective.  For people who look down on everyone else in the country as "dumb hicks", this sure seems pretty dumb.

That story about the store is no lie. I have had to wait for McDonald's employees to fetch the manager because the employees spoke no English. There are billboards all over Central Florida that are in Spanish, and entire sections of the area where no one speaks English.

That doesn't bother me, until I realize that many of them are in the country illegally, collecting government benefits, and I am working to pay for it.

Yep, getting worse rather than better... So tempted to just throw the TV out, but I want to know what the left/MSM are up to... Ironically, the 'best' coverage is from England and Russia... sigh

The media has lost touch with reality and they still don't get it.

The "media" may have well suffered permanent damage from this last election.

We The People have started looking other places for our "news", and we've found places that work for us.
