Repost: A Lesson for the Media

I felt the need to repost something I posted right after the RNC in July, as it's just as relevant now as it was then, and the stakes are considerably higher. The media must cover Trump and the Republican Party (THIS IS IMPORTANT: Paul Ryan and the others are as bad, if not as flamboyant, as Trump himself) as the monsters they are. THAT is objective, not "Both Siderism" (TM Driftglass) In fact, it's very clear that the Democrats are the good guys and the Republicans are the -- I don't know -- can someone help me with a term that's worse than "bad guys?" "Nancy Graces?" Suggestions, please.

One more point... speaking of Driftglass, if there is any fucking shred of justice in the world, a major media outlet will give him a prominent writing gig. He has been so right for so long (how long, buddy, since 2000?) about how much of an insidious threat the Republican Party is, and hammers it home in the most clever way. It just doesn't fit into the narrative that gives the mainstream media access to the people whose quotes (true or untrue) will help them receive eyeballs. EVERY. SINGLE. AMERICAN. needs to understand that this is one of our biggest problems in American society.

Without further ado -- I had fun creating this but none of this is fun anymore.
