I know it's pointless to whinge about the MSM, but let's face it [View all]

they could have done to trump months ago what they're doing now..

I suppose one can look at it as a good thing that they didn't. He's by far the weakest candidate the republicans could possibly have chosen. But he's making acceptable things that should have stayed buried. We've always had course strands prominently woven into our culture, but we keep adding more and more, and they're dangerous. Unleashing the id is a lousy idea. I'm not talking about the way of saying things, though that's part of it. I'm talking about uttering things that should never be uttered. Genies and bottles. It really has nothing to do with political correctness.

I'm not saying this well, as T.S. Eliot said plaintively in The Love Song... "that is not what I meant at all. That is not it at all".

I can't prove it. I can't even provide evidence for it. But I believe Trump has done and is doing real damage over the past year. He's midwifing a rough beast (sorry for all the poetry references).

And you, dear MSM honchos, have helped him. Turning on him now doesn't absolve you even a little bit.
