On Tuesday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Hasty talked at length about the importance of the media, the critical component of the nation's dialog and decision-making that the press should maintain, and the hypocrisy that is so evident in today's news and events coverage.

Hasty described the media's obvious bias and double standards, so evident in the frenzy over President Trump's recent alleged statements about some nations, in a private White House meeting regarding immigration.

Hasty talked about yesterday's tweet by commentator Sally Kohn, which read, "Trump is kicking 200,000 Salvadorans out of the United States and forcing them back to a gang violence-ravaged and impoverished disaster zone," and how it illustrates the contradictions the media constantly puts forth. Hasty said,

She's with MSNBC. She's part of the media, and she labeled a country a 'gang violence ravaged, impoverished disaster-zone'. That's OK. But if Trump comes out and says El Salvador is a crap-hole nation, well now, that's racist. This is why the people don't trust you. This is why the people do not trust the news media, by and large. Because a journalist can say, 'Man El Salvador's a crap country, I mean it's a disaster. No one wants to live there.' But the president says virtually the same thing, with a New York flair, and he's labeled a racist.
