Pretty good read on some of the issues with media that have been spoken about in the various presidential threads. In the end, it does offer some hope that we'll eventually figure out how to "extreme vet" our candidates instead of just nodding as they lie to us.The story of the election is the story of failing institutions. Cable news is so incapable of covering national politics as anything other than a two-man horse race it elevated a xenophobic monster into a legitimate competitor. Traditional reporting is so wedded to the language of impartiality that it took until the very end of a 17-month campaign for our most revered newspaper to call an unrepentant falsehood a lie. Donald Trump has an almost preternatural gift for exposing — and manipulating — the blind spots of media orthodoxy.
