    Donald Trump says the media underestimates his crowds — and him

    By Jenna Johnson September 26 at 2:33 PM

    OKLAHOMA CITY — As Donald Trump stood before a crowd of thousands at the Great State Fair of Oklahoma on Friday night, he complained that reporters always underreport the magnitude of his rallies and underestimate his chances of becoming president.

    "You know, it's hard, this running stuff," Trump said. "You're dealing with the press, and the distortion that they write is so unbelievable… I mean, they really do distort, and they are terrible people. Not all of them but many of them."

    Trump pointed to the small island of national and local reporters packed onto a riser in the sea of Oklahomans.

    "Hey, cameras: Can you do us a favor?" Trump said. "Take the cameras off me and pan the crowd. Pan it. Be honest. Go ahead, pan it... They don't want to pan it! Pan those cameras!"

    As the crowd turned to look at the bank of cameras, it alternated between cheering and booing. One woman in a Trump T-shirt hissed at reporters: "Be nice! Be nice!"

    In the past few days, Trump has been become increasingly exasperated with coverage of his presidential bid, especially at any suggestion that his success was just an odd summer phenomenon that's now fading. He has fired off tweets accusing reporters at a variety of media outlets -- from the conservative magazine National Review to the New York Times -- of being unfair and inaccurate. He is boycotting Fox News, having threatened to file a complaint with federal regulators against one of the channel's commentators.

    Trump has said he doesn't understand why reporters have focused on dips in his poll numbers rather than highlighting that he continues to dominate "every poll nationwide … and every state." He doesn't understand why photographers snapped images of rows of empty chairs at his speech at a business convention in South Carolina on Wednesday afternoon, especially when a town hall that evening was packed. He doesn't understand why some of his opponents are criticizing him for not providing specific answers to foreign policy questions, since he doesn't think a potential president should share such information.

    You know it really is a bizarre situation. CNN and Fox, especially go out of their way to make a big deal over how many are in the crowd, always trying to diminish it from what it really is, to the point of absurdity. They pan the stadium 2 hours before the speech and run this footage with their story. They did this in Alabama and Dallas. Then they do a little correction when the proof of the tickets proves them wrong but the headlines stay the same. They try to depict him as a "buffoon", a "clown", someone not qualified to manage the government and deal on an international level, when he's one of the most competent business people in the US, having been raised in business, attended and graduated from the best business school in the country, took a $40 to $100 million estate, based almost solely in New York City turned that into $10 billion and growing, and has built and invested in major high profile projects and developments all over the world.

    Reporters and media may not like him because of his policy positions, they may not like him because he's a Republican, they may not like him because he's from New York, they may not like him because they're jealous of him, whatever it is, it certainly can not be because of his competency, because there is no doubt that he is the most competent person in the race, bar none, by a mile.

    So if the reporters and media don't get their act straightened up, the outcome is not going to be discrediting Trump, it will be discrediting their own own news agency and of course, themselves.

    When the viewers no longer trust your reporting "shtick", they no longer trust your "news" and simply turn channels and eyes elsewhere.

    I hope that Trump can say this to the Media, too:

    Donald Trump is getting the Goldwater treatment. The "news" media always cuts the numbers of patriot demonstrations in half or greater even by four times less. And they double or quadruple the number of people in any left wing event. I have seen this consistently for forty years. I know this for a fact because I was there for many leftist or rightist events.
