Is the mainstream media handling the threat of the Trump candidacy very badly?
The U.S. media is essentially 100 percent united, vehemently, against Trump, and preventing him from being elected president. I don’t have an actual problem with that because I share the premises on which it is based about why he poses such extreme dangers. But that doesn’t mean that as a journalist, or even just as a citizen, that I am willing to go along with any claim, no matter how fact-free, no matter how irrational, no matter how dangerous it could be, in order to bring Trump down.
Glenn Greenwald, making clear he is not supporting Trump, has some harsh words for many his fellow journalists. Touches on recent wikileaks revalations of DNC wrongdoing, the quickness of national news to embrace allegations that Trump is a Russian agent, etc.
