"People hate the media because Trump tells them to" is the cry;

and, like so much else from many Professional Journalists, it's bullshit.  People don't trust said Media because they lie, both blatantly and by omission.
NBC News' Chuck Todd aired a deceptively edited clip of Attorney General Bill Barr discussing the Michael Flynn case during his "Meet the Press" broadcast on Sunday, prompting the network to concede the mistake hours later -- but there is still no word on whether Todd will apologize on-air.
A: They conceded because they were called on it, not because they wanted to correct this.
B: Chance of an apology: damned low.

In response, the "Meet the Press" Twitter account posted: "You’re correct. Earlier today, we inadvertently and inaccurately cut short a video clip of an interview with AG Barr before offering commentary and analysis. The remaining clip included important remarks from the attorney general that we missed, and we regret the error."
'Inadvertently'  and 'missed' my ass, this was deliberate and with malice.  Again.
