25. I'm afraid she's right. But that's the state of the media these days.

They have so much air time to fill, and ratings matter. So they harp repeatedly on the high-ratings story of the day or week.

It cuts both ways, though. Now that Trump has proven very unpopular and turned out to be incompetent and possibly unstable, this is hit on every single day. It's a ratings-upper and a popular topic. Is it valid? Well, I think so, but that's me. I think Trump is scary dangerous and unstable. I have thought so since before the election.

But that's the way it is. If only someone had leaked about the investigation into Trump's team's collusion with Russia...that would have taken precedence to the Clinton email story.
