Is it right that Donald Trump’s bizarre tweets are considered news and reported on extensively in the corporate news media, yet are never followed by an opposing (Democratic Party) response? Chuck Schumer doesn’t have a quote? Nancy Pelosi never has an answer? Whatever happened to the concepts of balance, fairness and/or equal time? No wonder Trump’s approval numbers never dip: he controls the message (with the assistance of the news media).
