People Outside A Trump Rally Told Us Why They Hate The Media (HBO)


President Trump was in Cedar Rapids last night
for a “Make America Great Again” rally. And just like any veteran touring act,
he played his greatest hits: — We will never be intimidated by the dishonest media corporations who will say anything and do anything to get people to watch their screens or to get people to buy their failing papers. — Trump supporters hate the media. A PEW poll from May found that in the Trump era, the partisan divide over the role of the press is the largest it’s been since
they began asking this question. Evan McMorris-Santoro went
to Cedar Rapids to find out why. — The fake news. They tell you—it’s fake news, it’s fake. — So what do you think? — I don’t hate the media, to be quite honest. They think that we’re more biased, or we’re haters or something to that effect, because, I guess, we only have
one way of looking at things, even though I have multiple ways
of looking at things. I’m not a sexist, racist pig that most media outlets call
Trump supporters most of the time. — You know, that’s another thing I have
a problem with the media on. I thought Trump was talking about groupies. All they said is he grabbed ‘em by the pussy. If you pull your panties down, and wave ‘em in a guy’s face who’s famous— like, if you go backstage to KISS concert, there’s a lot of grabbin’ ‘em by the pussy. You go to a Bruce Springsteen concert, and a chick gets back there, drops her panties— she may want to get grabbed by the pussy. But is that a job environment? Do you want that at the post office
where you’re working? — So how should the media
have covered that story, then? The media should have said, “Women
sometimes like to get their pussies grabbed”? — A lot of voters understood
he was talking about groupies. It’s like saying, “I gave her five bucks and
she dropped her panties at a strip joint.” She was working at a strip joint. That’s what you do in sniffer’s row, right? — Okay. — Well, I’m not saying that they say
anything about him that’s not true, they just blow it out of proportion
and make it bigger than it needs to be. I want media to focus more on
what’s happening in America, and not give a shit about what
happens in other countries. — Got it. Are you a Trump guy? — I didn’t vote, I can’t vote. I’m a felon, so. I guess I don’t really have
an opinion on our President, ‘cause I can’t voice my vote. As far as the media goes, I just don’t think they cover
enough of the stuff that matters, they cover more… it’s nonstop politic, politic, politic, politic. — It’s all about Russia, Russia, Russia. There is not one shred of evidence
that Russia hacked our election. Okay? There’s speculation. — Well, there’s a federal investigation into it. — Right. — So shouldn’t we be covering that? — A federal investigation into… who hacked the DNC? — Well, no, a federal investigation into
Russian involvement in the Trump campaign. That’s the federal investigation
that’s ongoing right now. — No. — How’s it going? — How’re you doing, what’s your name? — My name is Bill. — Nice to see you, Bill. It seems like you’re a person who
doesn’t really believe the media that much. — Uh, no I don’t. I will never believe the media until they
get off the climate change kick. I would like to know where some of these… celebrities went to school, and what was their major in college. Mine happens to be environmental science. Science has to be provable and repeatable. Okay? I would like to know where the ice went
that was right here 10,000 years ago. Did primitive man drive cars? — Got it. Thanks, sir. Nice to talk to you. Thank you very much. What should the media do differently? Like, if you had a chance to tell them what
you want to see them do, what would it be? — Well, what what you’re doing. Listening to people like me. I think you guys live in a bubble, you know? And you see things from only your worldview. And you don’t think that, yeah, there are people out here, you know, in Minnesota and Iowa that aren’t idiots. We’re not rednecks, we’re not racists, you know, we’re not homophobes, xenophobes, and all the other crap that we’re called. You know? And you should respect our opinions and come out and see
what people want to see covered. From our point of view.

  1. ok, that one guy is so dumb, I mean, the earth USED to go through hot and cold snaps of the extreme variety, but once homo sapiens, our species,( which he evidently doesn't posses the brain power to be a part of started farming, it produced green house gases thus starting global warming

  2. Trump said, "THEY LET YOU grab em by the p*ssy"
    That means he's talking about something consentual.
    THAT'S how the media should have covered it.

  3. Why do you even need to do a documentary on this, it's obvious why Trump supporters hate the media, it's because it totally distorts everything, never gives the full picture not objective. Actually most people hate the mainstream media for these very reasons but Trump supporters hate it more because they feel that Trump never gets any justice. Lots of positive things done in Trumps presidency yet the mainstream media give him no credit for any of it

  4. Trump lost control of his own Image, once he ran for office.
    The press now has control of his Image.
    Thus, Trump demonizes the Free Press.
    It really bothers Trump when optics/opinions of him are bad.
    Of course, he blames the media. But they simply cover the True Ugliness
    of Trump, and he has a different delusional Image of himself, of course.

  5. The media needs to stop dividing the country. Calling people names is not there job is reporting facts not opinions.

  6. Any Democrat who thinks Bernie lost to Hillary fair and square is a total CUCK!

    THIS DUDE IS A BETA!!!! SOYBOY CUCK!!

  7. The so called journalists in the media are not actual journalist they're activists. Instead of them reporting the news or story they make themselves apart of it by giving us their irrelevant opinion. Just report the news and report it fairly how they did with 44. Then let the audience decide not you decide for them if they like Trump or not. The left wing media brainwashes ppl.

  8. Vice reveals it’s Leftist bias regularly although I wish they’d spend just a little of their time examining Democrat crimes.

  9. WITH EVERYTHING THERE IS AN END! AND I WONDER WHEN TRUMP HAS COME TO THE END OF HIS PRESIDENCY…WHEN EVER THAT IS; WHAT WILL HE DO?

  10. Environmental science??? What is with the education system in America??? This guys a moron! How is it that some people can be more woke in America and some people can be like this? He's obviously been educated but chooses not to listen to what he's been taught!

  11. In other words, what the media should do differently, according to the non voter guy, is stop covering politics and cover more….icecream, I guess? And the others want the media to stop talking about facts or reality and cover opinions and fiction. Got it.

  12. Perfect example of media bias
    1. on the first day of Bill Clinton's presidency all three major news outlets praise him keeping a campaign promise for overturning something to do with abortions.
    2. on the first day of George Bush's presidency all three major news outlets said he started his presidency this controversy by overturning something to do with abortion.
    See the bias????????

  13. Funny VICE, you are sounding a LOT like the Fake News Media (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc.).
    Federal Investigation, Muller Report, NO COLLUSION. Yet you are still pushing that narrative…

  14. That "federal investigation into Russian collusion" really worked out, huh? All it really did was get a whole bunch of democrats into trouble. There's going to be a bunch of them sitting in prison soon. Can't go around breaking laws because you wanted Crooked Hillary to win so bad.

  15. It's sad that 2 years later the hate for the media has only gotten worse. Nothing was learned from this video, nothing was changed, and nothing will change until they all go out of business.

  16. Thanks for doing that. This is how media gains their credibility back. Exactly what you’re doing. Good job. See, we trump supporters are nice if you just talk to us. That lady said it perfectly. Just come talk to us.

  17. Just going to drop this here:
    We live in a time where opinion transcends facts. We're treading on very dangerous waters. Aside from the presidency, media, everything; I'm talking about the people. Fact check, fact check, fact check, people need to stop spouting their opinions and denying facts. People have closed off their way of rationalizing incoming information and allowing it to continually influence their ideals. The world is more complex than we'll ever understand and it does not revolve around a single person, project yourself looking onto the world and see how you can rationalize without opinion, just start with blunt facts and start looking on with a widened more open point of you.

  18. media is in the business of making money as is the Congress and the beloved Potzus. Why can Trump lie, do favors and pay-off his benefactors but the rest of the country should "behave themselves"?? It's Benjamins, baby – and, I truly do not understand why the MAGA crowd got so worked up about this poor black girl shouting: "The emperor has no clothes!" Don't scream & yell – Prove her wrong! … <silence>

  19. CNN sharing debate questions with Hillary…. CNN staging a ditch rescue during Harvey (reporter took time to change his clothes)… Anderson Cooper on his knees in a puddle to make the water look deeper…

    Before everyone had a camera phone and instant internet access, they could get away with this crap.

    When they "edit" audio and distribute those shortened clips as the whole thing without including a disclaimer that there was more, it is deliberately misleading. Trump didn't call Mexicans criminals and animals, he was specifically talking about MS13. He specifically condemned white nationalists, yet the media continues to lie to their viewers and claim he supports them.

    And then the media has the gall to get mad when people don't trust them any longer? Grow the [email protected]$ up!

    Objective Journalism has gone the way of the Dodo.

    #MAKEJOURNALISMGREATAGAIN

  20. Wow…thank you for doing this and very well done. Nice guy at the booth, just allowing people to vent. Makes the point better than any debate or argument ever could. No need to say a thing. This is eye opening and also frightening…those who have eyes to see and ears to hear will get it. If not, there is nothing one CAN say……Yikes.

  21. 3:35 I actually respect him for asking this question and not cutting her off. Her reply was pretty much spot on. If the media wants to be relevant and respected, they need to hire people in editorial positions (that is, people who decide what news stories will be covered) with different political viewpoints. If all your editors vote for the same party, you are biased and you need to admit it. They can't claim the role of objective news reporter and speaking truth to power if they are all in the camp of one party.

  22. Liberals are so bias they can't even admit that 99% of the media is on their side. That's how crazy they are and that's why we call out the fake news

  23. I don't get why they even brought up Russia lol do u not fact check Clinton is getting investigated about that now trump had nothing to do with that maybe look up more about the Russian scandal and see who is really behind it dont be sheep THINK FOR YOURSELF

  24. Justifying grabbing the peaches is a hard sell. We like entertainment mostly comedy. Comedians are a great example of how you can influence others. Jokes & even teasing is a fabric that binds people.
    If people don't read or want to, they can claim anything about books or newspapers. Where we have headed as time goes proves. this.

  25. 1. I agree about the media companies such as CNN and FOX news. They are spreading too much propaganda and not actual news anymore.
    2. Felon can't vote? If he is not inside the prison and served his sentence in full, he should be able to vote again, there is still over a year until the 2020 election.
    3. I am for the climate change global warming situation, but given the socialism that the democrats are bringing into this country, I am making the switch to republicans. As they support capitalism and the research on alternative energy including fusion power continues. Running coal in the US and doing research on minimizing its emissions can help greatly especially when other countries apply the results from the research. Running nuclear can keep the fossil fuel fraction of our energy mix smaller. Yes even under republican rule, we can still lower our emissions. Also people need to avoid getting those expensive car loans that cost too much money and contribute in the opposite direction when it comes to climate change.

  26. I like the Climate Scientist, he schools this guy about what was going on right where they were standing 15 thousand years ago when no fossil fuel was being burned . Ice still melted.

  27. I liked that. There should be more media coverage on things that the President is doing to help America and get off the negative view of him. It's just awful what the media has become. I don't buy any news papers and I hope they go under. The media so called journalist are so biased that their destroying themselves.

  28. Russia! Russia! Russia!
    Vice and the Left were not assaulted at any way.
    Yes, the left can kill and assualt the Right with impunity. Vice, do your Civic duty to the globalists, and spark that fire, brother.

  29. Its funny how news media like vice are always on the verge of bankruptcy and needs people like george soros to give them $250,000,000 to stay in business but republican media like fox news are profitable.

  30. So it orobably sounded something like this, " The media lies about our lord and saviour, he does nothing wrong. He says nothing wrong. Leave our Messiah alone!"

  31. I'm now a big Trump fan. Watching him brings tears of joy to me. I hated politicians all my life, they all speak word salad and lies. President Trump is NOT a politician (or as some say correctly, not a career politician), but a businessman with common sense who loves his country. Career politicians HATE that. He can not be bribed or puppetted and manipulated. The rest of the world is seeing his advantages over the entrenched corrupted alternatives.
    Love to President Trump, his family, inner circle and awesome policies. And the mighty USA.
    Cheers from Australia
    Mr. Showers.

  32. Another person commented that Germany twice has tried to destroy Europe, now for the third time with unmixable races and religions…

  33. Nobody hates the media.
    People are sick of being lied to by mainstream media. That's why they go to independent voices now.

  34. Obama spied on trump knocked Bernie out of race for Hillary sent a cargo plane full of money to Middle East that’s what media should report

  35. I love how Vice posts a "non bias" video with the question of why people hates the media. The total bias spewed throughout the video is horrendous. Heres a tip, ask the question and quit using editing to push a narrative aligning to why you believe that Americans hate the media.

  36. Very well thought and intelligent comments. I loved the 'Climate Change' guy…..well said and true.I feel the same way he does about having Climate Change badly used as a battering ram when the Left feels they are losing their argument. The Earth is changing constantly……it always has……it always will. This subject is being rammed down the throats of those of us that are not buying the 'garbage'……carbon tax is a tax grab and a big one…..Wake Up!

  37. They hate the media because it tells the truth about Pussygrabber, the most evil, dishonest, ignorant President ever and when the media reports on the daily lies and schemes he perpetrates it's the medias fault, talk about shoot the messenger.

  38. when your parents hear trump say something dumb your like KIDS GET ALL YOU STUFF PACKED WERE MOVIN BACK TO RUSSIA

  39. Trump 2020 The Democrats have went nuts they are control freaks they hate us all they do not want nothing to work they are jealous of America

  40. Trump 2020 we will vote against Democrat people are taught to be a victim and hate others and hate their self they are brain dead and they will believe anyting

  41. That "dumb" lady actually got the whole Russia collusion conspiracy right. What does that say about VICE and the media in general? What about the morons who actually believed it in the first place? Currently the Democrats are on about Impeachment – and guess how the media is covering that? That's right, presenting the same agenda/bias and not investigating any facts. I hope this is a wake up call to people who work in media agencies. Your job is not to report your opinion – it's to INVESTIGATE and find out the truth, regardless of your point of view. If you did that, believe me, many of you wouldn't be facing unemployment…

  42. This is a prime example as to why people hate the media. They have their own agenda. Any real solid journalism isn’t bias. I can’t stand vice anymore and I’m Canadian.

  43. Republicans hate the media because Trump tells them to, & Trump hates the media because they expose him for the clown that he really is. Trump bleats, "FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS!" and all his little sheep bleat in turn, "FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS!" Donald Trump is a fake President.

  44. It's not hard to answer that they lied and they are dangerous to the world how can they not be shut down and arrested and rebuild the media and how they get money like the lady said ppl live in a bubble if I yell you the world is flat you believe it
