Was the Media Complicit in Trump’s Presidency?


There was never any pushback; ironically, the same press which was lambasted every day by Donald Trump saw an opportunity to use him to increase viewership; translation: to increase revenues. The press was not flatfooted, it was not taken by surprise. The media was an accomplice, an active participant in its own failure. Every day, Mr. Trump would call any network and be immediately put on the air although he was not in the schedule and had nothing of substance to say. Mr. Trump would say anything, make any statement and was very rarely challenged by the hosts. He would call those same networks the next day, the day after and the day after and so on and will continue to be given FREE uninterrupted airtime to say whatever he wanted which could only be labeled as infomercials.
