Trump brings those issues up in every speech. The press reports on the hecklers and the occasional verbal gaffe. The press is too immature today to deal with anything heavier than infotainment. Trivial Pursuit is no longer a parlor game, but rather the object of today's political press.
Witness the sudden news on Friday from a tape of a boast by Trump eleven years ago. The Official Media used it to divert attention from the release of transcripts of Hillary's speeches and promises to big banks.
The press believes it must protect her at all costs. She is a continuation of a regime aimed at turning America into a feeble banana republic. George Herbert Walker Bush began this turnaround when he turned the Party of Reagan into a pack of mealy mouthed cowards and apologists.
Not one single major newspaper endorses Trump, as media donors to Clinton continue their smear campaign against Trump. They have too much invested in Clinton to allow an usurper to win. The media bosses all believe fiercely in a fascist state where the government uses regulation to protect big companies from competition, while doling out huge subsidies.
I use as an example the Keystone pipeline ban. The pipeline threatened Warren Buffett's monopoly on shipping oil from the Bakken Field in North Dakota. He rented this regime to block that.
As for subsidies, the Solyndra loan guarantee cost taxpayers a cool half-billion bucks. Who was Solyndra? A company run by billionaire George Kaiser who ponied up a half-million for the Obama campaign. That's a thousand-fold return on investment.
The Murdoch sons took over Fox News this summer, leaving us with no legitimate opposition to the liberal media. Those anti-Trump screeds disguised as editorials in newspapers that "always" backed the Republican merely are the public outing of newspapers that were co-opted by liberals long ago. The clutching of pearls over Trump using the word pussy was bad kabuki theater. The New York Daily News published the word in bold capital letters on its cover on Saturday.
And of course, Trump's apology was roundly ignored as the press eagerly carried out the regime's instructions to pile on -- and eclipse the very damaging revelations about Clinton.
No policy discussion.
No bad news about Clinton.
It's Pravda 2016.
Has the media killed Trump?
I hope not. They think they have. They also thought they killed his nomination chances in April when he lost Wisconsin.
We shall see.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump. (Read the reviews in the right column.)
