from Facebook: blame the American press for Donald Trump

    The fault goes both ways. The news media is giving the public what it wants. I despise Trump, but I confess to being drawn to his coverage the way I’d slow as I pass a traffic accident. The only remedy would be to divorce the media from financial concerns, but then the media would simply be beholden to a different audience, i.e. whoever is paying.

    That is not the job of the news media.

    Without a doubt. But I think both the media (as a business) and special interests conspire against what we both want: intelligent commentary that doesn’t create false equivalencies. Even when such commentary exists, those whose ox it gores would discredit it.

    Well, it might work better than giving the advertisers what they want.

    As long as guilt by association is a campaign strategy, enjoy the company of gamergate in criticizing the press.

  • What?
