Ms. Marcus – your hatred is showing. All the tooth-gnashing in the world will do nothing to change the facts. It will only upset you and cause your readership to decline further. Print media is on the way out. Part of the reason is because people have found they do not have to pay for news when they can get it for free on the world-wide web. Mostly, though, it’s because media writers have chosen to champion progressive causes. And resistance is met with derision and, most importantly, hatred. You have become unable to see facts. You listen only to the other people you work with and choose to read. You hold the American public, who have moved on to more important things, to be stupid, fly-overs. You make fun of us, our religion, family, and our pickup trucks.
We no longer care about your slanted, intolerant rants.
“The huge challenge of covering Trump fairly”
Perhaps the hardest problem — and the most important, given the millisecond modern attention span — involves how to accurately portray Trump’s conduct within the confined space of a headline, or a broadcaster’s capsule summary. This task will demand constant vigilance and endless creativity on the part of those of us committed to practicing journalism in the Age of Trump.”
