Trump and the media both have an agenda that is not necessarily bound to the truth

Washington Post:
How Trump distorts reality with his attacks on the media

Casting himself as Truth Teller in Chief, the GOP nominee regularly attacks the media as dishonest. But he gives his own words a pass.
Trump is actually worse at saying things that are not so about his political opponents especially in the primaries.  His campaign against Ted Cruz was one of the most dishonest in recent memory.  

But the media notices things that he says about them they do not believe to be true more often because it is them.  Media distortions are usually much more subtle than Trump distortions which are intended to impose metaphorically blunt force trauma on those between Trump and his objective.
