Two key things Wilson's article does not address or confess..

1.) The outright lies and massive deception that's been pervasive in Republican and right-wing media for decades. He implies it but soft-pedals it. There must have been a hidden Reagan 12th Commandment that says: "never use the word lie or admit to lying".

2.) The massive layoff of journalists and editors across the country in the last twenty years or so, particularly in the print media industry.

One might also ask Mr. Wilson why a number of highly respected news outlets in Europe did indeed regularly call out Trump's lies and bullshit in no uncertain terms, while it was crickets in America.

Yes, that's the stranglehold capitalism has on us.

I'm 70 now and my parents went through the Great Depression and WW2 the hard way - very poor (farming and timber). Much of our days of better economic times with high happiness in life were pre-merger/acquisition days when companies gave a damn about both employees and the communities where they were located.

Almost every small town where I was raised in a TN farm belt had a garment factory (or two), a milk plant, one or two feed stores and three or four family-owned grocery stores. Also (typically) a radio/TV shop, at least one five-and-dime store, one or two jewelry shops, a hardware store, two or three clothing shops, three or four gas station/garages, usually two funeral parlors, a florist shop, at least one community bank, a couple of barber shops and a couple of small restaurants and a dairy dip. Plus, a grammar and high school, a fire house, city hall and police station and numerous small churches. Whew!! (my brain walking through town in around 1960, LOL). And guess what - they all thrived and made a good living!

Something's very wrong with this picture of today's America...... .......

Just think of all the scams tRump can run in prison...

Perfect place to keep his flim-flam skills well honed...

* laundry scam,
* snacks and condiments concessions,
* Trump In-Prison University.....................
* TV and radio rentals with free Faux Prison News,
* in-prison reality shows,
* gambling and bookie services,
* medical services (only the best quacks),
* mail and email services,
* cell phone provisions,
* sexual services (lots of experience there).....
* financial and legal consultations (LOTS of experience there).....

We've all known for a long time...

trump is but a symptom of a deep-seated rot characteristic of the Repug party - in my memory since Nixon.

Sort of like taking the bandage off a severely infected wound. But, no surprise here because the patient has been running a bad fever for a long time.

We Democrats are the only antibiotic for this infection.......
