Was the mainstream media against Ronald Reagon?
Damn right they were
Yes, they were against him, but he was a very likeable guy. Reagan ran against Carter in 1980 and Carter had done so miserably in his first term that the support from the traditional Democrat establishment was lukewarm. Reagan had a good first term and was challenged by Mondale (Carter's VP) in the 1984 election. At that time, Reagan was the oldest man to ever serve as president, and age started to become an issue. This is how Reagan handled that.https://youtu.be/LoPu1UIBkBcThat gives you an idea of how Reagan disarmed many of his opponents, but by this time, the MSM was too entrenched in the left to switch their allegiance. Since that time, of course, the MSM has been fueled with absolute hatred for Republicans and conservatives.
You think they treated Trump badly? They treated Reagan 1000% worse.
You are not only not a historian, Your characterization of mainstream media of the 60's and 70's is just some crap you're making up.Ronnie was a horrible person and a horrible president.Nixon and Bush 41 both decried trickle-down economics.(something the GOP hopes no one remembers). For the last 50 years, the GOP built itself up with lies, pandering to evangelicals, villainous attacks on human rights and needed social programs through careful cultivation of racism, and white privilege. They also blocked every piece of good liberal proposals made in congress.
@AHary 1. Is it possible that you are biased in your evaluations of all the participants you mentioned?2. You are 32 years old. The first president you remember is probably Bill Clinton. Your understanding of the history before that era is secondhand and, even if it wasn't biased, I would not afford it much weight.
I studied poli-sci, economics, sociology, philosophy, and history at a Big Ten university. My pursuits for knowledge has often led to study Nixon, Regan, Bush 41, and Clinton. I am vary open to learning from the facts and science present behind any opinions on issuesYou don't know me.
@AHary You probably studied poli sci at some left-leaning indoctrination center masquerading as a university, and you shold be very, very aware of the ills of revisionist history. If you want to see things in a biased manner, that is your right, but a bright person would be intellectually honest about that."Your characterization of mainstream media of the 60's and 70's is just some crap you're making up." No, not at all! I read the newspapers daily when they were a source of news in the 1960s and 1970s. I watched the nightly news on the networks because that is what was available and that is what everyone else was watching. I have THOUSANDS of hours watching that stuff. If you want to dismiss my opinions as fabrications simply because that is an easy way for you to avoid responding to the merits, go for it, but. . . res ipsa loquitur.

I wonder if the down votes come because people don't know it's true and don't like the answer? Any Senator or Representative who can look at the Capitol Insurrection and say " there was no violence, it was just another day", is mentally incompetent and should be removed. Anyone who agrees with those Legislators is simply an idiot, and a blind one at that. I guess seeing it on hundreds of videos doesn't mean shit to them.
Yeah I’m sure China is cashing the checks to cnn and fox as you type this
@DrHobama China is cashing checks? LOL
Then why are they supporting those who are currently violating the Constitution with impunity, right out in the open?
@AdmiralSirJohn How are "they" violating the constitution?
Well, let's see. They're violating the First Amendment by limiting the size of gatherings, they're violating the Fifth Amendment with the lockdowns, they're violating the Tenth Amendment by usurping what should be done at the state level, or more property, by the decision of each person.Shall I go on?
It's been this way since Colonial times. You think it's nasty now, you should read some of the newspapers from the early 1800's...
They're just as much democrat as republican. Doubt me? Try watching it for a full 24 hours.
