Press needs to figure trump out

A normal person, most everyone, who is leading a question and answer session WILL be affected by a provocative or critical question and listen and respond to facts. It's human nature.

The man, for the last 50 years has probably been barking out orders and yapping on and on with zero pushback.

Trump does not react as most do. He's got the mics turned down for press ( once heard him say he can do this). So when someone asks, he just talks loud and obfuscates and riffs.

So obvious after watching CV briefing yesterday.

Press can work on battling this. But they've got to stick together.

1. There are individual components of The U.S. Press that do a good job but most of them don't.

That's why I don't pay attention to any of them. The European/Canadian press is much more
informative and consistent. Saying what the press here in the U.S. could do to help is like saying
that if a person just washed their hands and self-quarantined they wouldn't have died from COVID-19.

It doesn't make any sense...

4. It's obvious to me that we need to get rid of tRUMP so I'm willing to focus on that instead of

trying to get rid of all the elements of society that support him.

5. Yes, I had read that. It is very interesting. But I am talking

About how we not abet it. How the press would work together to combat his narcissistic behavior. They are all bright people yet they haven't figured out what to do.
