Once again, confirming a sucker is truly born every minute, a Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politic, and Public Policy has concluded that you are being taken for a grift. Don the Con knows one thing. It's just a business transaction, no hard feelings. And after all, this is show business now, and there is no such thing as bad publicity in show business.

The Lust For Ratings




The study found that the advertising equivalent value of the media coverage Trump received from the outlets they reviewed came to about $55 million.


You don't need to be a genius to see this is all about the green:




“The answer is that journalists were behaving in their normal way. Although journalists play a political brokering role in presidential primaries, their decisions are driven by news values rather than political values.


Hell the evil left wing media could flood the airwaves with synchronized farting with Kim Kardashian rapping about how she's the second coming and people would swallow it like a two for one McCrap burger.




Trump exploited their lust for riveting stories. He didn’t have any other option. He had no constituency base and no claim to presidential credentials.


Trump isn't to blame for the implosion of the republican party, he's a symptom. And as Alexis de Toqueville said: "people get the government they deserve."

I would venture to say that the implosion isn't isolated to the Republican side. The entire political process has imploded and the Democrats are every bit as corrupt and disorganized as the Republicans. The People are tired of the same old BS from the mainstream parties. Even the media is getting sick of the shenanigans on both sides of the aisle.

That's the beautiful irony of it, and frankly, the genius of Trump. While the political class and its acolytes reduces itself to sanctimonious virtue-signalling, finger pointing, and feigned outrage, their very bigotry has pushed their mortal enemy into the forefront, while the media capitalizes on it. If the media and its acolytes didn't make a big deal out of Trump, he would have been gone a long time ago.

No one in our political environment actually appears capable of solving even half of our problems though.

A major issue there is that ultimately, each of us as individuals has responsibility and even a duty to contribute towards solving problems within our own sectors.

That alone is a significant problem: most people aren't dedicated enough to attain or possess the mental clarity or critical thinking skills or invest the time required to first identify problems rationally and then concede their own responsibilities and duties towards their resolution.

Issues like education and communication are massive barriers and it takes a very long time and hard work on personal development to breach the threshold into a degree of self awareness required to even begin to fathom the depths of "responsibility" or "duty" in relation to a proposed 'intelligent politic'...

It didn't need the media to make a big deal out of Trump, he steps into cow pats instead of negotiating them, that's the real irony. The media are just doing their job, though I have to say there weren't too many negatives about him from that quarter in the early days of this election...after all, he is a Republican...or so he says!


Genius eh! is that word still in the dictionary?

In other words, we're screwed if people don't wisen up and think more deeply.

Learning to be patient is also increasingly vital if we have any reasonable hope of saving this failing Society.

We are diving into Chaos futher at a quickened pace, and this election cycle is a great example of that. So is just walking outside and investigating the physical reality of your own city on the street level.

How do we avoid wrecks in rush hour traffic? Everyone has to pay attention, be patient, and exercise manners and courtesy. We all bear responsibility for these things. That's just a simple example.

Yes the media thought they were making the GOP look terrible by showcasing Trump instead of one of the more serious politicians. Turns out they basically gave him the nomination due to all the air time.

Though I think it's interesting that the writer didn't state why media exposure is somehow better for Trump than for another candidate such as Hillary. They quote a poll from Fox News showing her negative numbers. Why? Fox News is right leaning from what I've seen. Of course their viewers are going to vote against Clinton.

Terrible, biased article with no interesting conclusion.

People benefit from free advertising. Wow! Who woulda thought!

How come? personally, I've heard about her, I wouldn't know her face though, mind you, there must be millions of examples of her arse. But I suppose if that's what she uses to communicate, then both her and Trump are in good company.

That's not irony.

Yes, the media are doing their job, but those who gorge on it aren't.

Disorganized? Hillary is running ad campaigns in six battleground states right now. She's spent over eight million this week alone.
ballotpedia.org...

That's her staff.

Well you articulated this better than I could. I do think this is the beginning of the end of the two party system. Evolution is a slow and painful process.
