Larry King has been in the media game for a long, long time. He is still at it, but after CNN cut him loose he moved over to RT – Russia Today.
That such a valued member of the media, such a straight shooter is exiled to RT is a shame as Larry still brings the goods. He went after CNN in a recent interview over their coverage of Trump and he pulled zero punches.
“They covered him as a character. They carried every speech he made. They carried him more than Fox News, at the beginning,” King said. “And so they built the whole thing up and the Republicans had a lot of candidates and they all had weaknesses.”
“CNN stopped doing news a long time ago,” he added. “They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time.”
“You don’t see a story — there was vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day — not covered on any of the three cable networks, not covered. So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first — they covered every speech he made and then they made Trump the story. So, Trump is the story in America.”
Correct and therein lies the rub – the media absolutely helped create the Trump phenomena and profited handsomely from it.
But as soon as Trump won they turned on him in such a vicious manner – which confused Trump to no end – and with every new day the attack him to help eliminate the regret they feel for their role in helping Trump win.
But you cannot go back and redo the past so they choose to soil the present and violate the future with their coverage.
“I guess it’s to their regret. But, they covered him as a character. They carried every speech he made. They carried him more than Fox News, at the beginning…
And so they built the whole thing up and the Republicans had a lot of candidates and they all had weaknesses. When I saw Senator Cruz hug Donald Trump the other day I said, “this is what America has become.” He said that Cruz’s father helped kill Kennedy!” Kind added.
