The mainstream media has chosen to commit suicide. . . . "My only quibble with Michael [Goodwin]* is that I doubt that the MSM had much credibility before it began its ambush of Trump, though for a certitude it has now gone beyond the point of no return. As he says, the MSM’s “reputations will likely never recover, nor will the standards. No future producer, editor, reporter or anchor can be expected to meet a test of fairness when that standard has been trashed in such willful and blatant fashion.” This is a historic moment. Mainstream Americans will continue their migration to the Internet. That is their alternative and in using it they will continue the steady bankruptcy of the news organizations of MSM.
The MSM is aroused by Trump’s words but unbothered about actions that Clinton has actually taken. They seem to think that Trump’s misfired jokes or loosely formulated statements are more dangerous to the commonweal than Clinton’s decisions with her e-mails and her mendacious cover-ups. Emphasis added.*American journalism is collapsing before our eyes . . . "The shameful display of naked partisanship by the elite media is unlike anything seen in modern America." . . .
