Why Does The Media Ignore Most Of Trump's "Problems" ???

Like why Putin is working so hard to elect him.
Like his charity fraud.
His tax fraud.
His sexual attacks.
His Trump U scam.
His lifetime of screwing people over.
This list goes on, like forever.

All I hear about is e-mails, e-mails, and more e-mails.

It sucks.

The press isn't free. It is corporate controlled, and is destroying our nation. Our press has become the enemy of all that is good.

We need to do something about it.

1. Almost all mainstream pundits are white

 

That's a big factor.

11. Unfortunately, cutting the cable

is the only real way to get the message across. You can't get access to cable networks without subsidizing CNN at the very least. A real public protest would be a movement for millions to cut them off financially but unlikely to happen.

3. Look who owns most of the media

They slant things to their point of view.

If you're in an "enlightened" area, sometimes they allow an opposing point of view--as long as they have someone to shout it down before the point gets made.

14. Their "panels" are ALWAYS about 80% CRAZY right-wing,

15% corporate Republican, and the other 5% are Democrats who are shouted down by the others.

16. Exactly. And you have to wonder:

Who selects these maniacs for the panels, and why do the "hosts" invariably let the shrill nutters from the extremist right always shout down everyone else and never insert a little discipline (let alone decorum), and just cut the mike of the worst offenders? Maybe because they have been instructed not to, hmmm?

9. either they think Hillary is guaranteed to win so they just want to make it close

 

for downstream races, or they really do prefer him for some god forsaken reason. Or they know no one really watches them anymore.

They have always leaned rightward, because corporations, but it's super disgusting to see it with Trump.

10. OTOH, the nations newspapers have gone overwhelmingly for Hillary

 

so it's really TV that is the problem, for whatever reason... maybe they are more corporate driven

15. Yes. There's that. And why has the election been reduced down to just a

horserace between two people rather than a battle between two parties...one with a reasonable record and admirable platform and one with a deplorable history of statements, obstructionism, hate and polarization?
