7. K&R - major truth. Thanks for sharing that story and perspective.

I love your approach. I hope we can somehow pound into the public's mind 1.) the level of professionalism (including checks and balances) of our main-stream journalists and media companies, and 2.) explain the motives and funding sources of right-wing specific companies like News Corp., then we may stave off this attack by Trump and his plutocrat backers.

I hope professionals like you can somehow find platforms that are heard by our public to spread that message. The essence of this long-standing problem is that a large number of high-wealth individuals believe their wealth entitles them to not only control news content and editorial opinion, but also the entire direction of our politics.

This attack on our Constitution-backed norms and traditions is nothing but pure evil. It's equivalent to massively attacking the professional credibility of general practitioners in our medical field, to a degree that people would just stop going to a doctor for anything.
