As we approach a new year, it is clear that 2017 will be remembered as a momentous year for news.
Perhaps the biggest story of the year will turn out to be this: How the United States defeated ISIS and its caliphate, and almost no one took notice.
When ISIS was roaring to power, under the watchful eye of the Obama Administration, no one could figure out how to stop them.
In less than a year, under the military guidance of the Trump Administration, ISIS has been defeated and Iraq and Syria have taken back large swaths of their countries that were formerly under ISIS control.
One would expect the mainstream media to cover this as they would the end of any other war. But—for the most part—we’ve heard only crickets.
The truth is reporting good news under the Trump Administration seems to be increasingly difficult for the mainstream press. They can’t even acknowledge when a major victory has been won.
Story of the year number one, defeating ISIS. Story number two? Losing the mainstream media. One is good. The other is horrible.
