Why Was This Ever a Story?


All I can say is, the fact that Donald Trump ever was a story says a great deal – nothing good – about the corporate media, and really about the culture in general. I mean, here’s a guy who’s basically famous for being famous (and rich), who never was even a candidate for president, yet who had the ever-in-search-of-a-good-freak-show media reacting to every crazy, bizarre, bigoted thing he said. Why? Very simple: ratings.  End of story. Same thing with a certain former, half-term, failed ex-governor of Alaska (and failed ex-VP candidate). Along the same lines, why was/is that ever a story?!?
