Old advisors, outdated strategy - by Vox Day

Mike Cernovich explains why the Trump team is having such a difficult time with the media.
When WaPo or NY Times drops a “devastating” story on Trump, do you know who reads these storiesliberals!

Thus one can see the problem with Trump’s media team. They are spending all of their time, energy, and focus responding to news that most Trump supporters won’t even see, and if we see it, won’t believe it.

Trump was right (for the wrong reasons) when he jokingly claimed he could shoot someone on Fifth Ave. Most of his supporters would never see the story, and absent a clear video, wouldn’t believe the story if they saw it.

Want to know how out “out of touch” Trump supporters are with what liberal media is saying? I don’t even notice most of the media hit pieces on me, and even with a massive online following, people rarely ask me about anything nasty the media is saying about me. My readers, like me, aren’t reading liberal propaganda outlets.

Trump’s media team is playing defense, running around responding to stories that most of Trump’s base will never read, and if they read, would never believe.
He's absolutely right. When the battleground is disadvantageous, refuse to play on it. Force the enemy to meet you on your chosen ground. This isn't new, it's literally ancient strategy.

All men can see the tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
