The media is addicted to Trump

Froomkin’s analysis of Trump coverage is excellent. However, I think the main reason the media gives him so much coverage is that their ratings were better when he was president. I watch less TV because I am disgusted that they still give him and his dangerous lies so much coverage.

Terrible New York Times headline

another bad one

More bad behavior by Fox News

Stop putting liars on TV

Trump supporters have to lie in order to defend Trump’s lies. The media should not put liars on TV to spread garbage. I am all for a balanced approach as long as both sides tell the truth. Trump wins when the media reports his endless lies.

Hannity should have told his viewers about his connection to Cohen

Hannity should have told his viewers that he had consulted Cohen for legal advice. (I am skeptical that it was about real estate – it appears Cohen’s specialty is paying off people who could adversely affect his clients.)

What did Fox knows?  This column says Fox should conduct an investigation.


Update:  Hannity has ties to two more Trump-connected lawyers.

Fox was surprised by the Michael Cohen connection but gives Hannity full support.

Trump wants people to go on TV to encourage him to fire Mueller

Everything for Trump is based on what’s on TV.  In this case, he tries to manipulate the coverage but Fox News is already his equivalent of Russia’s RT. He should just move the Fox News studio into the White House and cut out the TV set.
