Media knows some will just believe what they say even if it doesn’t make any sense.

On Monday, radio host Rush Limbaugh ripped the “Drive-By Media” for sabotaging news of President Donald Trump’s unprecedented deal with Mexico. According to Limbaugh, the mainstream media correctly reported the proposed deal initially, but changed on a dime to claim the deal was somehow old news when they realized how beneficial the story was for Trump. The conservative voice also noted that the media were stuck since they couldn’t claim the accomplishment was the result of the Obama administration, as they have in the past, so the “old news” tact was their only option.
“It was fascinating. When the media first started reporting on it, they gave it great huzzahs. I mean, they gave it great coverage. They were very positive about it,” said Limbaugh during his radio program, according to RushLimbaugh.com. “And then it’s almost like somebody [said]: ‘Wait, wait, wait, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute, we can’t do this.’ And the coverage turned immediately negative. I’m talking about the tariff deal with Mexico that Trump announced on Friday.”
Trump announced Friday that he had secured a deal with Mexico to enforce important immigration measures in order to avoid his threat of tariffs — starting at 5% and potentially increasing to a whopping 25% if the country were to continue to resist cooperation.
