The Collapse Of 'Real' Media Credibility (In 3 Simple Images)

<p>Two words - <strong><em>"nailed it"</em></strong></p>
<p>What a difference 4 months makes... From Meltdown to Total Meltdown to Man Of The Year...</p>

<p><a href="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/07/time-mag-brands-trump-huckster-calls-clinton-american-moses.html">As FoxNews notes however</a>, while President-elect Donald Trump was named Time magazine's Person of the Year on Wednesday, <strong>the honor basically ended there. </strong></p>

<p><strong>While describing Trump as the real change-maker of 2016, the magazine also ragged on the Republican president-elect as a “huckster” and “demagogue” </strong>while reserving its most glowing praise for runner-up Hillary Clinton -- whom the edition breathlessly described as “an American Moses.” </p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>In describing Trump, Time's article almost exclusively used backhanded compliments.</strong> For instance, while the piece said he “did what no American politician had attempted in a generation,” it added that he “magnified the divisions of the present, inspiring new levels of anger and fear within his country.”</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>...</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>The article on Hillary Clinton is much different.</strong> Subtitled<strong> “The winner of the popular vote leaves a complicated legacy,” the tone is worlds away from the fulminating darkness that permeates the Trump piece.</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The opening paragraph reads more like the prologue of St. John’s Gospel than an essay on a presidential runner-up, saying of Clinton: “she became a symbol in a fight that was about much more than symbolism."</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>"She’s the woman who was almost President, she is what might have been and what will yet be."</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>“Like an American Moses, she was an imperfect prophet, leading women to the edge of the Promised Land. Now it’s up to another woman to enter it.” </strong></em></p>
</blockquote>
<p>The big question is, will TIME name <a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-08/time-magazine-goes-full-goebbels">Putin </a>'Man of the Year' in 2017?<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></span> </p>
