February 15th Luncheon: Radio Talk Show Host Terry Gilberg on the State of Media Bias in the Age of Trump

We all know that the disaster that is the mainstream media–especially in the age of Trump.

Since Trump first descended the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for President in 2015, the media has been in overdrive to defeat him. And now that he is our president, it is evident that they are not going to go quietly into the night. Instead, the press is doubling down. Which is why this is going to be a long and stomach-wrenching four years. But we must stay strong!

If you want some insight into why the media holds Republican presidents to a higher standard, then join us on February 15th. Bias in the Media is one of Terry’s favorite topics! And she’ll help to shed some light on what is to us, as Republicans, a very frustrating phenomenon.
