We can all understand the dilemma mainstream media outlets face. Does the very act of just reporting on Trump’s latest bizarre tweet or action normalize it to some degree? Should Trump simply be ignored at times? The answer is yes to both questions. But the real answer to righteously covering the immoral Trump is to discard the old “both sides” rhetorical format used by journalists and state the truth unequivocally.
Will the United States continue to be governed by an authoritarian and anti-democratic narcissist surrounded by unqualified sycophants and opportunists or will it elect decisive Democratic Party majorities in the House and Senate that will provide desperately needed checks and balances on President Donald Trump’s chaotic tyranny?
