What a revoltin’ development

Donald Trump has been treated very unfairly by most of mainstream media.

Sometimes, extremely unfair treatment of someone I don’t like will warm me to him. But Donald Trump is so cruel, and narcissistic, and such a fraudster in how he has engineered his public image, that it hasn’t worked that way this time.

That doesn’t exonerate the media. Tit-for-tat is not journalism. Wild-ass speculation isn’t journalism.

So we’re left with a totally unsuitable President and a media we can’t trust to report accurately about him.

What a revoltin’ development this is!” as some character on early television (William Bendix? Jackie Gleason?) was wont to say.
