From 'fake news' to 'hate news' how left wing media can't be appeased by Trump statements

Washington Examiner:
While many Republicans and Democrats alike think President Trump's Monday rebuke of the racists who rallied in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend was too little, too late, he and some of his most loyal followers have learned a different lesson from the episode: Trump critics can never be appeased.

The president himself tweeted that he "made additional remarks on Charlottesville" only to be reminded that the "fake" news media "will never be satisfied." "Truly bad people!" Trump concluded.

Trump later retweeted a prominent alt-right Twitter user asking why the media was not more interested in the shootings that took place in Chicago over the weekend.

Donald Trump Jr., the president's oldest child, arrived at a similar conclusion. "Unfortunately, it will never be enough," Trump Jr. tweeted in response to the criticism of his father's second, fuller set of remarks condemning white supremacists Monday. "That is the sad reality of the game today."

"There is no right answer/response only a moving goal line that can never be reached," the younger Trump added.

The president came under fire for a lackluster Saturday response to the violence in Charlottesville that left a woman dead, blaming "many sides" for the disturbances and failing to single out any of the racist or anti-Semitic groups that were on hand.

Trump attempted to correct the remarks Monday with a full-throated denunciation of bigotry. "Racism is evil," he said. "And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."

"We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal," Trump continued. "We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America."

Scott Adams, the Dilbert cartoonist who emerged during the campaign as a pro-Trump online polemicist, asked before the president gave his statement from the White House, "When you start disavowing, at what point, logically, do you stop?"

After it was noted that Trump's comments about racism were read from a Teleprompter and lacked the fire of his impromptu talk about radical Islamic terror ("evil losers") or MS-13, Adams claimed vindication.

There is more.

In watching some in teh media report on Trump's speech you could hear the visceral hatred in their voices and see it in their body language.  They have lost all professionalism when it comes to President Trump.
