I think we’ve overlooked a fatal mistake Trump made from the very start of his run for the presidency. His using of the term “fake news” turned a very powerful institution against him.
I for one am relieved that our TV, radio, newspapers and magazines are more influential than one person’s bias, Democrat or Republican. Trump’s constant questioning of our free press — mostly unverified and unjustifiable — probably was a factor in his defeat. His statements, I am sure, made supporters happy, the rest of us just sad ( it was pathetic really).
