24. She's absolutely right.

This is a result of the market-driven nature of corporate media. Trump gave good ratings, and ratings are the be-all and end-all of the market model of news media.

Maybe it's time to consider that the market model doesn't necessarily work best for everything. Maybe it's fine for toasters and cars but not for journalism, medicine, education, etc.

Maybe, just maybe, it's time to turn away from market fundamentalism.
