Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 05, 2017

This past year, a host of left-leaning Americans have been signing up for new subscriptions to the nation's beleaguered press, berated almost every week as "fake news" by the United States president. And, indeed, nearly 30 percent of those purchasing online subscriptions say their motive is to help fund or support journalism, according to a recent survey by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism. It's been called a "Trump bump," and organizations like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and others have reported dramatic surges in subscriptions. The New Yorker has sent out more than a half million promotional totes [to new subscribers], and can barely keep up with demand.

I find it unbelievable that 50% of people think the media makes things up about the president. Believe me folks, if you just watch closely for a while you'll understand that you just can't make this stuff up.

In other words, subscribers are giving the media a financial incentive to give Trump free press time, which arguably helped him get elected and may possibly get him re-elected?
